I’m on the phone to Weedeater’s bassist and vocalist Dave ‘Dixie’ Collins and the phone-line is making him sound like some kind of weird demon.

Crippled Black Phoenix - New Dark Age Tour EP 2015 AD (Season of Mist)

Utterly delightful...
Release Date: 
27 Nov 2015 - 12:30am

First off, you can hardly call 50+ minutes of heavy psychedelia an EP - this release is quality AND value for money.

Grim Van Doom - Grim Love (WOOAAARGH/Aural Attack)

Fat, sludgy doom...
Release Date: 
10 Sep 2015 - 11:30pm

Tusks - Embers (Freak Flag Recordings)

Fuzzy fun-times...

Cathedral - In Memorium 2015 (Rise Above Records)

Ooooh yer...
Release Date: 
9 Jul 2015 - 11:30pm

I must prefix this review with the admission that I love Cathedral so this piece will have the hearty stench of bias wafting through it.

Tomb Of Finland - Below The Green (Mighty Music)

Early 90's doom, black and death metal, anyone?
Release Date: 
20 Aug 2015 - 11:30pm
