Bong Breaker – Mountain (2014)

02/20/2014

Dutch Band Brings Dutch Lighting Doom Bong Breaker, one of Holland’s best doom start-ups, has released their first full-length album last month following their demo dropped in 2012.

Mount Salem – Endless

02/10/2014

Heavy Residents of Chiraq Starting off with a personal quote from Charles Manson usually isn’t how you win over a crowd but luckily for us, a riff as heavy as his sentence follows the quote. I found myself replaying track one simply just to hear the quote. Mount Salem is a female lead Doom Rock Read More

Dopelord – Magick Rites

01/22/2014

Dopelord brings weighted bluesy doom in its best form. From across the pond, Poland is making a lot of noise. In 2010, Dopelord formed in Lublin and debuted their first full-length album in 2012, Magick Rites. The northern areas of Europe are known for some of the darkest and heaviest metal to hit the underground Read More

The Curse of Bombay Beach

11/19/2013

I have heard the quote, “What we don’t know cant hurt us,” but my first trip to Bombay Beach takes the cake for blind fear. My day began at 3:30am Sunday November 3, 2013. My set alarm unresting my eyes to a focal point; I was already dressed from the night before. The plan was Read More

The original band members included William Mecum(Treasure Cat), Rich Mullins(Speedealer), and Rob Oswald(Nebula). They are classified as a stoner rock instrumental band, positively compared to the Palm Desert scene bands like Kyuss.

Bell Witch – Demo 2011

10/03/2013

Can’t Get Enough Red Death! Before you close the gates on bands with the word “witch” in their title, do yourself the favor of listening to any one track on this demo. Bell Witch is from Seattle, Washington and in my opinion the most deserving of their name. After doing some research I came across a Bell Witch Read More

Tides – Resurface

09/18/2013

Sometimes It’s Better Without Words My enthusiasm for instrumental rock bands is the result from a love or hate relationship with any band’s front man. I’m a fan of rock vocals, but upon hearing a new band I often tense up after be hypnotized by a great intro riff and waiting anxiously for the vocals Read More

Caravan Of Whores – Road To Kurti EP

07/16/2013

She’s a Sludge! Originally our Web Developer/Art Director turned me onto this album. Road To Kurti has a muddy, oil ridden, pitch-black echo of a sound as if funneling through underwater drug tunnels across International borders. Dare I even compare Caravan Of Whores to likes of Bongzilla; Caravan Of Whores is slower, crispier, and more Read More
