This is the fifth album from Ehnahre, an experimental doom band from the US.
This is a hefty and ambitious experimental doom release. It has a basis in metal, but frequently incorporates non-metal elements into the music, to great effect.

Usnea are a doom band from the US and this is their third release.
I must confess a deep love for Usnea at this point; all of their previous work thus far has been stunning, (check out
Random Cosmic Violence and their split with Ruins as just a couple of examples. It’s also no surprise that they made it onto my best of 2014 end of year list). Continue reading

Canyon of the Skull are an instrumental doom band from the US and this is their second album.
The Desert Winter contains one single track that lasts a whopping 37 minutes.
Boris are a legenday group from Japan. Over the years they have produced so much music in so many different styles it’s actually quite difficult to keep up with them. Suffice to say, whatever they do, they usually do it very well indeed.
The last time we caught up with Boris it was only a year or so ago, with their

When an album is just three tracks and yet spans over an hour of material, you know you’re in for some properly slow doom dirges.

Feral are a drone/noise/post-rock band from the UK and Debutante is a one-man electro-rock/drone artist from Switzerland.
I’ve not encountered Feral before, so was unsure of what to expect from their two track, six minute contribution to this release.
This is the latest EP from Swiss post-black metal band Schammasch.
Oh, Schammasch. You never quite know what they’re going to do next. Their last album, the colossal and immense
Triangle, was so good it made it to the second position in my best of 2016 list.
Idre are a doom band from the US and this is their second album.
This is the follow up to 2014’s
self titled debut, which was an impressive release that provided two tracks of heavily atmospheric and layered music. Continue reading
