Naam – Vow – Review

January 27, 2014

With Hawkwind and Iron Butterfly on the mind, Namm forge their own meandering path through the cosmos and desertscapes.

Windhand – Soma – Review

October 15, 2013

Catchy fuzz in the vein of Black Sabbath and Electric Wizard. “Orchard” is a fantastic, lurching buzz bomb from their second album, Soma.

Monster Magnet – Last Patrol – Review

September 18, 2013

Even if their new stuff isn’t as world-beatingly awesome as that of their glory days, it’s guaranteed to be way more badass than most new rock ‘n’ roll.

Supermachine – Review

August 23, 2013

Recording sounds great, but if you were a fan of Scissorfight, most of these songs are a waste of the guitarist’s and bassist’s gonzo talent and locked groove.

Deville – Hydra – Review

August 16, 2013

There’s enough metal chug and stoner swagger to keep this a rock record, but the polished production will make the shaggy wary of commercial overplay.

Inter Arma – Sky Burial – Review

August 6, 2013

It takes a few minutes for Inter Arma to be satisfied with the doom-drenched plod before adding additional elements, like a faint roar in the distance.

Hot Lunch – Review

July 31, 2013

Big amps, lots of wah and distortion, Kyuss-souled stoner rock yahoo, and “Killer Smile” has drum fills Sabbath’s Bill Ward would approve of.

Bottom – MMXII EP – Review

July 5, 2013

Bottom has always been heavy and dark, but not like this! 2013 Bottom leans more Melvins/Blag Flag, with huge slabs of guitar fuzz to get their point across.
