EUJENICS – Humanism

EUJENICS – Humanism

Nearing the end of 2014, The Creep Void released their ‘Elevation of Idiocy‘ EP. The band’s second – and final – release, its featured tracks were head and shoulders above anything on their ‘Apothesis’ album from 2012. With a decent production and some great riffs, it promised even more for their third release…but the band […]

MASSACRES – Brutus EP

MASSACRES – Brutus EP

Formed at the beginning of 2015, London alt-metal band Massacres came a long way in a very short time. Their sound, an uncompromising blend of metalcore and hardcore punk intensities, quickly found an awaiting audience. For work on their debut EP, they also secured the talents of Jason Wilson, a producer of some renown whose […]

CULT OF LUNA/THE OLD WIND – Råångest (split EP)

CULT OF LUNA/THE OLD WIND – Råångest (split EP)

              Råångest: Swedish for raw anxiety. Quite possibly the most aptly named release since Strapping Young Lad‘s ‘Heavy As A Very Heavy Thing’, this split EP between Swedish bands Cult of Luna and The Old Wind is heavy, raw and intense. Cult of Luna have gained a big cult […]

SKULLCAVE – Climbing EP

SKULLCAVE – Climbing EP

Rarely was a band more aptly named. It takes about three seconds before this second EP from Australia’s Skullcave sets about caving in listeners’ skulls. These guys not only know their way around an enormous riff, but also know how to make the simplest riffs sound truly frightening. ‘Am I Crossing Over’ opens with a […]

1968 – 1968 EP

1968 – 1968 EP

1967’s supposed summer of love and its psychedelic, swirling colourful world was never going to last forever. 1968, by contrast, was darker and less flamboyant, a time of unrest. Students rioted in Paris, while the psychedelic pop of yesteryear was beginning to wane in favour of harder stuff. Often abreast of the mood of the […]

MOTÖRHEAD – Inferno

MOTÖRHEAD – Inferno

In 1991, Motörhead realeased the album ‘1916’, an album on which they sounded more alive than they had in years. The songs were sharper than their late 80s efforts and the band sounded like they’d regained a lot of their spark. There was a surprise too: the title track was a cello backed ballad, where […]

DIRE WOLF – Black Death EP

DIRE WOLF – Black Death EP

As much as their choice of band name might suggest, Brisbane’s Dire Wolf probably don’t have much time for the Grateful Dead’s brand of Americana. Formed in 2011, the band’s chief goal was to become one of the city’s heaviest bands – and if they couldn’t claim such a feat previously, their 2015 EP release […]

MERCY BROWN – Mercy Brown

MERCY BROWN – Mercy Brown

Mercy Brown’s debut album is a sledgehammer of a release. This Washington based band clearly aren’t keen to mess around; while not always the easiest of listens, this first full-length comes loaded with riffs the size of jugganauts, a production value so entrenched in bottom end that even the biggest riffs sound bigger still and […]

HERSCHER – Herscher

HERSCHER – Herscher

Herscher are practicioners of a rather mean and lo-fi brand of doom metal, the kind that’s so intense that makes your average doom band sound like they’re gearing up to play a few Boney M covers and then bed down for a late night at about 7pm. On the bulk of this third release, this […]

MY LIFE’S DESPAIR – Invoked With Passion & Pain

MY LIFE’S DESPAIR – Invoked With Passion & Pain

Having roots that stretch back as far 1994, My Life’s Despair is a doom metal band centred around drummer/multi-instrumentalist Larshus. Although he spent a decade working with other underground bands somewhere between hatching his original idea for the project and the time of its actual fruition, it’s easy to hear that a lot of thought […]
