Latest Reviews - February 24, 2015
Eidetic Seeing
(Against Nature)
2013
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.3 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Stoner rock, Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Kyuss, June of 44, Colour Haze
Looking for something fresh and innovative in the world of psychedelic stoner and doom rock? How about a band that uses a word in their band name that we should perhaps know, but haven't a clue. 'Eidetic' is defined as "relating to or denoting mental images having unusual vividness and detail, as if... Full Review and Video Clip
My Expansive Awareness
(My Expansive Awareness)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.7 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Sleepy Sun, The Brian Jonestown Massacre
In 2014 we were introduced to My Expansive Awareness who hails from Zaragoza, Spain. We were very impressed with their debut EP, Uroboros as it has become a mainstay album for us. The EP is full of vibrant and spacious psychedelic rock, it had us eager to see what they could deliver on thei... Full Review and Video Clip
Noir For Rachel
(Potential Side Effects)
2015
Staff Rating: Turn this to 6.5 of 11
Genre: Shoegaze, Ambient
Sounds Like: Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky
Noir For Rachel is a shoegaze/ambient project from Russia. We are not sure if this is a one-person project or not as very little is written about them (or him or her). Let us move past the trying to figure this out and concentrate on the music. Noir For Rachel has released several singles and EP&rsq... Full Review and Video Clip
Guerilla Toss
(Gay Disco)
2013
Staff Rating: Turn this to 5.8 of 11
Genre: Noise rock, Experimental, Punk
Sounds Like: The Sediment Club, Melt Banana, The Scissor Girls
Music fans that may not be familiar with the noise rock scene should consider Guerrilla Toss as a potential entrée into this bizarre world of music. The Boston five piece band incorporates all the fundamental characteristics of noise rock particularly with a myriad of atonality and dissonance... Full Review and Video Clip
Somali Yacht Club
(The Sun)
2014
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.4 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Stoner rock, Post rock
Sounds Like: My Sleeping Karma, Causa Sui, ISIS
Somali Yacht Club, sounds intriguing doesn’t it? Well to our surprise there is not much written about this band. They are a three-piece based out of Lviv, Ukraine who formed in 2010. They released an EP, Sadsongs in 2011 and a single Desert Walls is 2013, reminding us of a cr... Full Review and Video Clip
Orm
(42012)
2012
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.8 of 11
Genre: Doom, Sludge
Sounds Like: Electric Wizard, Sleep, Deadbird
Orm is a doom, sludge band from Denver, USA and their 2012 album 42012 is just classic doom sludge to the core. The albums' bleak, evil drudgery will drag you into their cold, distant world. The harrowing vocals have this Jus Osborn from Electric Wizard meets Sleep vocalist quality about th... Full Review and Video Clip
Snailking
(Storm)
2014
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.2 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Doom, Sludge
Sounds Like: YOB, UFOMAMMUT, ISIS
Having named their band after a terrific Ufomammut album Snailking we were intrigued right off the bat. The Swedish based trio welcome their first full-length album entitled Storm in follow-up to their three song gem Samsara. The album is well titled as the ambient element... Full Review and Video Clip
Large Marge
(ST)
2012
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.6 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock, Sludge
Sounds Like: Alabama Thunderpussy, Church of Misery, Stick
Deep in the swamps of Louisiana comes Large Marge led by the gritty guitar chops of Luke Duke and Aaron Myers. They call it "swampfuzz"... give them kudos for trying to muster up a new genre. The reality is this foursome delivered a self released debut stoner rock album laced with some very bluesy g... Full Review and Video Clip
TarLung
(ST)
2014
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.3 of 11
Genre: Sludge, Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Church of Misery, Soilent Green
TarLung from Vienna, Austria took form in 2013 and has brought forth a heavy, rhythmic and sludgy album on their 2014 Self-Titled release. We must emphasize the word rhythmic, because there is a constant stoner-driven groove to the music. Consisting of three band members: Rotten (guitars), Marian Wa... Full Review and Video Clip
Mountainside
(Solitary Poor Nasty Brutish and Short)
2013
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.3 of 11
Genre: Metal, Stoner rock, Sludge
Sounds Like: Iron Monkey, Saviours, Metallica
Wow, talk about a band that throws everything at you, Mountainside does just this. The band from Lithuania believe it or not started back in the late nineties and has released only three albums, Distorted (2003), All About Time (2007) and Solitary, Poor, Nasty, Brutish, And Short (2013). We haven't ... Full Review and Video Clip
