Geezer Spiral Fires EP Review

Geezer are a trippy doom band injected with the blues from Kingston,NY. Their latest EP Spiral Fires is another great Cosmic Stoner Blues record. Spiral Fires part 1 starts off with very trippy sound effects reminiscent of Pink Floyd. Very spacey. Then a dirge, raunchy blues riff comes and this three piece does crushing blues similar to that on the first two Black Sabbath records. The groove and the lyrics combine perfectly to create an awesome song. So fucking heavy and spacey. The production is wonderful and raw. Spiral Fires part Two starts off with the same riff but played quietly with the drums while the guitar is floating and buzzing over by saturn echoing throughout the milky way. Then a amazing atmospheric solo comes through. Sublime improvised vocalizations come in as well, such a vibey tune. Darkworld starts off with the muddiest guitar tone ever heard as this heavy psychedelic tour de force in all the ills in society. Such a tight band with astral pastels painted sonically  …

Vanha Melancholia Review

Melancholia is the second album by Vanha from Sweden. As the title suggests, it's a beautiful Death Doom album. With atmosphere of longing and desperation and dark tranquility permeate like a moon over a mausoleum.
The Road starts us off with dark soft ambient guitars slowly rising from a rotting tomb. Spoken word insues as the music builds ever so slowly and forlorn. Then it kicks in. So slow and despair ridden, medieval, and beautiful. Amazing guitar work, solos are amazing. Almost reminscent of Iron Maiden in sense of the melodies guitar wise here. Absolutely astonishing. Storm Of Grief has some beautiful riffs here. Haunting and creating an atmosphere that's thick and intense and beautiful all at the same time. Using growls on this one, its so fucking amazing. So heavy it could crush a church. And yet its got the funereal vibes. The musicianship is top notch and cant be questioned. Starless Skies starts off with beautiful strings and synth overtop a sullen soft guitar riff. …

Interview with Jake Blatchly from White Devil Detroit

Jake Blatchly is the lead singer in White Devil Detroit an Australian hard rock band. A great frontman inspired by Bon Scott and Dee Snider, he's a funny bloke with the wit and wordplay that keeps you laughing. From Aleister Crowley to synchromatic orgasms, Jake is an open book.

Hey Jake, thanks so much how the fuck are ya?

Hey Andy! No wuckin’ forries at all mate! I’m feeling pretty opti-mystic and well rested! How are you?



     When did you decide you wanted to be a singer in a rock n roll band?

In the beginning I didn’t really decide to do it, it was thrust upon me haha. My best mate when I was 12 years old got a guitar for Christmas one year and I’m pretty sure before he could even play a note, he decided that he was going to start a band and I was going to be the singer. So I just took it from there and it basically became my entire identity, it took me a long time to get actually any good at singing though! Haha. I’ve been thinking back on different things from my childhood re…

Surf Zombies Return Of The Skeleton Review

Hailing from Iowa, Surf Zombies deliver gnarly waves, sun, sand, and fun sonically. Guitars soaked in reverb and full on energy. Return Of The Skeleton is a great fun record.
Starstorm starts us off with a vibe that mixes Agent Orange with The Eliminators. Fuzzy rhythm with the reverb drenched leads. Its a bit dark though. Frank & The sharks has a element of The Shadows. Its beautiful. sublime. Return Of The Skeleton starts off with a creepy slide down the neck of reverb filled horror scooby doo chase style music. Its done perfectly. They make it real instwad of corny. They capture a dark surf vibe. Rougue Wave has a great opening riff. The rhythm chymes in with power chords to create a groove and builds into what sounds like the great Cthulu of waves set to destroy any surfer in it's path. These dudes are The Misfits of instrumental surf music. Top fucking notch. Slingshot is another happy arousing number. It evokes fun and sunlight. The duality of their sound is really a show …

Prophets Of Addiction Nothing But The Truth Album Review

Prophets Of Addictions’ latest Nothing But The Truth is a fantastic, stripped down acoustic record and it is quite amazing and moving at times. Taking their glam punk sleaze hybrid down to their raw bare bones.

The American Dream opens the album perfectly. Its subtle and sublime, using lines like 'seasons may change but I'll stay the same’ it's a statement thats powerful and its a truly good song.Lesli has that  folky wine to his voice that i never really caught until hearing this record. Its really something special here and it touches your soul. Altar of Altercation is a twisted beautiful song about living in a rough town. The thing about this record, as they are a punky glammy band, but this record has all the elements of a good folk album. Storytelling songs with wonderful, simple melodies. Holy shit. Babylon Boulevard is a song they have an electric version of, but this version cuts you like a knife and leaves you bleeding in the gutter in the moonlight. Its so intense …

Onset Unstructured Dissemination Review

Onset is an Atmospheric Funeral Doom band, a two piece from Singapore. Their EP Unstructured Dissemination is an instrumental masterpiece, haunting and brooding. The soundtrack to the abyss. Brings to mind cold medieval burials.
Permeation The Ordeal starts off with eerie synth slowly building, setting the mood, and it's desolate. It builds up and the guitars and everything come in. Very cosmic and hypnotizing in a way. It is quite incredible, with funereal beauty. Echoes of past lives seep through your subconscious as you listen and bask in the dark tranquility of your mind floating through the river of ain. Incredible work. This doesn't need words.
Pestis: The Suppressing & Recurrence starts with a drum roll and goes into a motherfucker of a riff and has a layer right underneath that has ghostly like sounds. It almost sounds like a demon whispering to you right underneath the riffs. This ep is absolutely amazing. Stunning and stellar craftsmanship in music, and creating au…
