    Bear, Man Dangerous – Unofficial Coworker CD EP

In the meantime, Bear, Man Dangerous released a couple of recordings, such as More Than You Need and Unoffical Coworker. Bear, Man Dangerous […]

    Acid King, the pioneering heavy rock band fronted by the inimitable trailblazer Lori S., return with Beyond Vision, an album that sees the iconic San Francisco-based band lean into psychedelia and the avant-garde. “The band was never really that psychedelic, but this is definitely more trippy because we’ve got keyboards and synthesizers,” Lori explains. “That’s something […]

  • Stonetree – Voidfill III EP

    Stonetree – Voidfill III EP

    Tireless Austrian alternative rock machinery Stonetree is back with the third edition of Voidfill EP. These guys are unstoppable, and the most surprising thing is how everything they put out sounds divine. If you throw yourself back to their inception and then go way back to the present day, you’ll notice Stonetree released nothing but […]

  • Turbid North Released Video For “Slaves”

    Turbid North Released Video For “Slaves”

    “Slaves” perfectly showcases Turbid North’s multi-dimensional attack: it churns and grinds furiously while all-powerful waves of doom swell under the surface. Turbid North’s unique sound owns the territory between the blasting mania of bands like Napalm Death and Pig Destroyer, the crushing weight of Crowbar, and the mournful, melodic glory of Pink Floyd. No Clean Singing states: “While this song is in […]

  • Reaptile – Humanidead CD (Various Labels)

    Reaptile – Humanidead CD (Various Labels)

    I thought this cold weather deserves some heavy sonic background, so this particular release came in handy for this occasion. It has been a while since I heard about this band, but somehow I always put it aside until I stumbled upon a press release about one of their singles. Damn, it sounded so good […]

  • Listen To We Are Very Happy LP By Huracán

    Listen To We Are Very Happy LP By Huracán

    It’s clear from the opening drum roll, which rapidly increases from mid-level volume to forceful urgency, that the Ghent-based Huracán are hungry to make a statement. Only seconds later, it also becomes apparent that this is not your typical deliberately paced post-metal offering. With its razor-sharp riffs, propulsive drumming, and psych-rooted vocals, their third release […]

  • Throwing Bricks Released The Burden LP

    Throwing Bricks Released The Burden LP

    Throwing Bricks released ‘The Burden’ today. Their debut album ‘What Will Be Lost‘ proved that the Utrecht based Throwing Bricks isn’t scared of trying out new sounds and influences to truly create a path of their own.  Second album ‘The Burden’ pushes this idea even further. Producer Tim de Gieter (Amenra, Doodseskader) helped Throwing Bricks […]

  • Instrument – Sonic Cure CD (The Instrument Village)

    Instrument – Sonic Cure CD (The Instrument Village)

    Recently, a new batch of releases arrived at our headquarters thanks to our dear friends at Bite It PR, and this one was among them. This particular CD had a simplistic, minimalistic, yet catchy cover artwork, so I thought their music must be good. Thankfully, I was right again because this material bursts with creativity […]
