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

Weedeater at Soda Bar 1.20.14

01/30/2014

Weedeater played Soda Bar last Monday and f**d our ear drums ruthless. My ears rang the entire ride home and carried through to the morning. The line up has been recently altered as their drummer Keko left the band and Travis Owen (Whores.) filled in for their tour with “Dixie” Dave Collins and Dave Shepard. 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

Windhand – Soma

10/31/2013

When Great Musicians Come Together. In the run for 2013 Doom Metal Album of the Year, Windhand’s Soma delivers a fully appreciated sound and track list. It seems more common for bands to lay out 2-3 solid gems while leaving space on the album to test a few lighter joys or obnoxious rant-a-bouts in hopes Read More

Karma to Burn – Wild, Wonderful Purgatory

10/17/2013

Pure Southern Power Karma To Burn formed in 1997 out of Morgantown, Virginia. 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. The only difference, there is no hiding the twang in these boys. They had Read More

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

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
