Torche – Admission – Review

July 8, 2019

All roads lead to the title track, the heart of the album (placed smack in the middle) and among the best songs the band has ever recorded.

Monster Magnet – Mindfucker – Review

March 31, 2018

They’ve gone from tripped-out, psychedelic fare like Spine of God and Dopes to Infinity to a more straightforward rock ‘n’ roll sound on Mindfucker, their 11th album.

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.
