King Giant announce brewing company listening party for upcoming LP for this Friday (May 8)

...and it includes exclusive Black Ocean Waves Beer (in pints), so if you're anywhere near Lorton, Virginia get in there!

As their third LP, Black Ocean Waves, nears release this Summer, Northern Virginia's King Giant have confirmed an advance local listening party for the album.

Desert Storm - Omniscient (Blindsight)

A fine listening experience that takes you on a heavy blues tinged journey, get in!
Release Date: 
26 Jan 2015 (All day)

Desert Storm's, Omniscient, is different to what is often times found on your atypical straight ahead stoner metal album.

Black Tusk - Tend No Wounds (Relapse Records)

Punky, sludgy, swampy goodness...
Release Date: 
22 Jul 2013 - 11:30pm

Another EP for review? This time it's from Black Tusk and what a sweet piece of work this is, even at a mere six tracks.

Anthrax, Fozzy, This Is Hell, The Hi-Fi Bar, Melbourne - 28/02/13

Melbourne worshipped music beneath the pulpit of Anthrax ahead of the Soundwave Festival, Fozzy providing their own brand of explosive devotion.

Melbourne's Hi-Fi Bar takes decorating advice from none other than Mick Jagger. It's painted black. All over. Even the green room is painted black.

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell - Don't Hear It...Fear It (Metal Blade Records / Rise Above Records)

Everything about this release oozes wickedness. It's a trippy throw back to 70s era stoner rock. The great thing about this album is that it doesn't feel dated. It feels frakking sweet!
Release Date: 
28 Aug 2012 (All day)
