Caldera – Centralia EP

Out of any musical genres out there, doom metal bands always seem to get it right when it comes to the naming process.  It's not like that absolute glut of stupidity during the nineties where everything was tagged as "alternative" even though there were like fifty different types of music.  But they all had this […]

Necro Deathmort – EP2

We're bandnamecist around here, completely coolnamesupremacist.  Cool name power.  Please understand, we were raised this way, or rather, we raised ourselves in such a way that we expect the best, not the better-than-most, the best.  And that's what our readers expect.  Necro Deathmort is a name we've actually heard before, but honestly we ignored it […]

Bog Oak – A Treatise On Resurrection And The Afterlife

God damn take a breath before you finish trying to say the title of this one.  It's so blasted long there's probably a new law that will be on the books in about ten years after it passes through the House, provided the dichotomy of idiocy up in there gets with it.  It shall thus […]

SaturninE – S/T Demo

Wait, this is a demo?  There's no way, there's just no way.  This little beauty was tucked away in a box the old editor had in his possession, and this guy, new editor, found it while digging through the dregs to find the goodies to actually review (that's how we do it now, not everything can […]

Odradek Room: Bardo. Relative reality

No no no, we didn't improperly write the title, that's how it appears verbatim on the album cover, so give us a break.  We don't correct grammar and syntax errors of bands if they're being "artistic" for us.  Especially if they assist us with their knowledge, explaining the meaning of the Tibetan word 'bardo' on which […]

Secrets of the Sky: To Sail Black Waters

As a rule of thumb, bands that include any form of the word 'sky' are avoided as experience has dictated that many end up being "risecore" quality bullshit metal with high school quality lyrics about played-out emotional dramas that no one gives two shits about. For whatever reason, Secrets of the Sky was given a […]

Fist Fight in the Parking Lot: Year of the Ox

We first came across Fist Fight in the Parking Lot via their self-released EP about a year or so ago.  Verdict?  Awesome, but unfortunately we can't show you the proof because we're programming the archives so they work properly due to the fact they're in an older version of PHP no longer supported.  Take our […]

Sloth Herder: Abandon Pop Sensibility

Funny story about Frederick, MD.  The reviewer who is penning this review here happens to be doing research for a novel partially based on a true story, part of which involves a man shooting his wife through the heart, who was originally from Frederick, like really, that part's completely true.  After he killed her, and […]

Symptoms of Sickness: S/T

Symptoms of Sickness: S/T

Black and doom is a beautiful combination. It's a great medium to channel melancholy and wrath with deep, resonating growls, heart-wrenching riffs, and moments of infinite suffering. It sounds easy to accomplish but by the small number of black/doom bands out there that have become successful, it really is not. Fortunately for you, it seems […]
