Wreck of the Hesperus: Light Rotting Out

Anyone who doesn't enjoy this album and pretends to understand depressing funeral doom is full of crap.  So full of crap.  We're talking like your DNA is literally crap if you say such a thing.  Your parents were no better than the C.H.U.D. that spews the bile-ridden sewage that led to there actually being a […]

Zozobra: Savage Masters

The Zozobra (Old Man Gloom) is an enormous effigy that's built  and burnt every fall in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  People use the Zozobra as symbol of ridding themselves of their gloom for the coming winter, by lighting it all on fire but essentially going on to repeat the exact same mistakes they were trying […]

Death Valley Driver: Graveyard Dead

When we first encountered these guys a year or so ago, the disc was too old to review and well, we didn't like it much anyway.  The cover was a huge WTF with some sort of skeletal Mexican wrestler holding a mic that looked more like a computer mouse and some ghost chick under his […]

Greenhorn – The Plague Doctor’s Mask EP

Nothing beats receiving a self-released hack-job that actually ends up being...awesome.  "What is this?" you wonder, as you stare at what looks like a...like a...yes that is the skull of a triceratops.  Wait a minute, guys, this isn't even a plague doctor's mask!  Okay, for once, let's not put this aside, we said, let's take […]

Dementia Senex – Heartworm

In a strange way, this EP is so, so, so, so refreshing. This winter has brought forth few notable releases to attention leading to a music slump of sorts. This is a light in the darkness. Heartworm is three tracks long clocking a little over 17 minutes and combines death metal, sludge, and post-hardcore into a fearsome […]

Regarde les Hommes Tomber: S/T

Here we go again, time to get redundant up in this.  French hardcore, especially of the post variety, dominates.  It's one of the most atmospheric, creative, and musically confrontational hotbeds in the modern scene.  We were first enlightened on this subject several years ago, and since then have been continually enlightened, endlessly enlightened.  We're so […]

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 […]

Kapitan Korsakov: stuff & such

Damn it, not again!  Not again!!!  You see, you look at the poorly Shooped (that means Photoshopped) cover, and you immediately write it off.  "Wow, nice, someone got the free download version of CS or something, that's nice, next!", you say to yourself, and come back to it as you get to the bottom of the […]

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 […]

Tons: Musineè Doom Session Vol. 1

Now and then doom bands get the name right.  It's not about the name, you say?  No, it is about the name, damn it.  None of this stupid wizard junk with fire, bong smoking, electric space-worm-riding, trip-to-the-sun-in-a-cardboard-spaceship, Jesus-in-Hell-with-the-Virgin-doing-lines-whilst-reading-The Return of the King junk that's boring.  Sadly that was a reference to probably about two hundred […]
