This is the debut album from UK stoner rock band Ghozer.
Abrams’ sound is an interesting one. The band fuse a few different genres and styles – psychedelic, alternative, stoner, sludge, grunge, and post-metal – into music that drips with gorgeous singing and emotive guitars. Continue reading “Abrams – In the Dark (Review)”
Gone Cosmic play retro blues-laced psychedelic rock with a progressive edge, and touches of heavy metal. Which is a relatively simplistic description for such a potent record. Continue reading “Gone Cosmic – Send for a Warning, the Future’s Calling (Review)”

This hefty release has a doom metal base that’s then mixed with grunge, and has heavy, stoner, blues, and psychedelic rock elements liberally sprinkled over everything. Some songs lean into certain influences more than others, which leads to a decent amount of variety across the album. The promo blurb mentions Alice in Chains and Windhand, and that’s a decent picture of Besvärjelsen’s sound, albeit an incomplete one. Continue reading “Besvärjelsen – Atlas (Review)”

In fact, Black Blood of the Earth from that release makes a reappearance on Ephemeral. Continue reading “Blue Heron – Ephemeral (Review)”
Es Taut came out of nowhere in 2018 and blew me away. Its multifaceted sound was as impressive and emotive as it was accomplished and well-delivered. No wonder it appeared high on my end of year list. Due to this, Anthaupt had a great deal of expectation placed upon it before I even heard a single second of its 66-minute duration.

What can go wrong with a formula like this? Continue reading “Alunah – Strange Machine (Review)”
