Woebegone Obscured – The Forestroamer (So EPIC It Goddamn Hurts)

  Just look at that goddamn sick cover. Man, I don't know what in the world a forestroamer is, but I want to be one. I want to be one with the nature and the trees with moss dripping all from me. The artist, Artem Demura, aka Stargrave, was the perfect fit for Woebegone Obscured, […]

Malsanctum – S/T (Two Minutes to Funeral Doom’s Funeral)

  Well, here it is, likely the first time something from Iron Bonehead Productions actually depresses me in the other way. I prefer the "why does the human race exist?" type of depression, but this is more of a "why was this album released?" sadness. Now, please pause, for I have already started this on an […]

Interview with Sea Witch (No Band Photos, They Are a Force Not a Band)

Doom metal.  A genre that's really getting on our nerves anymore.  Too little variety, too much cut-and-paste aesthetic, too much simplicity, too much too much too much.  We panned one of those bands not so long ago, yet another doing the same old thing but somehow riding fame for that very reason.  But there are […]

CASSETTE ASSAULT – Speed it Up, Slow it Down!

Yes, you are correct, it's that time again.  Time to pull out the altar that is your tape deck, whatever its size, whatever its age, though we prefer original hardware.  In fact, you know what, you're out of the cult if you don't have a deck from the 1980s, so check it right now.  Good? […]

Lychgate – An Antidote for the Glass Pill

Gawd we really needed something new, something unique, something spectacularly bizarre.  Open the curtains, lead us into a crypt musically, scribe before us with aural might a portrait of the macabre.  We seek to be transported through dark corridors dripping in mildew, to smell the dried marrow of ages of death under our feet, oh […]

Oceanwake – Sunless

Slower varieties of doom, those that enter the realm of the funereal, are often overlooked except by this sick, vibrant niche of freakos who find themselves content with purposefully getting jaundice and sitting in the darkness after the electricity is shut off, their bills long unpaid after hours of self-induced misery.  All that remains is […]

The Vault: Mistress of the Dead – White Roses, White Coffin

Funeral doom is a pretty stable niche in the field of doom metal, but it tends to turn away most of those who are more attuned to the driving force of bands like Bog Oak, or really anything with a tempo that doesn't move at a pace so slow half a chord progression takes a […]

Квітів Знедолених Берегів – За небокрай мрій

We've encountered a wonderfully diverse form of two types of metal from Eastern Europe over the past few years, in particular coming from Russia and the Ukraine.  Folk metal of the pagan variety, and doom metal, the latter often delivered to us by Russian-born Solitude Productions.  We could go off on a number of bands, […]

Evadne – Dethroned of Light EP

In the world of doom metal, it's pretty simple to categorize any one band, in fact many of them sound so similar furthering delineating by way of another adjective is often fruitless, or better to say delusional.  However, if there's one clear derivation in the genre, it's funeral doom.  You've probably already heard of the […]

Evadne – The Shortest Way

It's time for some doom peeeeeoooople.  Solitude Productions is a stellar label out of Russia with a primary focus on all things doom, though much of it of the 'funeral' variety, generally speaking.  Meaning emotional, sometimes brutally slow, sometimes symphonic, none of that stoner crap stuff.  Well, okay, so there is occasionally some of that, but […]
