Gwenno – Y Dydd Olaf

Gwenno – Y Dydd Olaf

For all it’s faults, Y Dydd Olaf does have an interesting premise and it’s mostly a very good album. It’s maybe not one you will return to often though and there lies the problem. It will no doubt carve out it’s own little niche audience but for how long will they stay enraptured? By Martyn Coppack

Katechon – Coronation

Katechon – Coronation

Katechon have taken great leaps and bounds into making an album that showcases their personal growth as a band and as songwriters, seamlessly demonstrating a perfectly natural progression from album to album. – By Georgia Curran

10 Waves of You – Fields of Venus

10 Waves of You – Fields of Venus

A compelling balance of vibrant atmospheres and harmonic post-rock. By Dave Guzda

Goya – Obelisk

Goya – Obelisk

It’s no understatement to say that Goya were trying to make an impression here and by that reckoning we can say that they pretty much nailed it. There are albums in every genre that stand out as totems of what can be achieved and whilst doom may have more than its fair share, ‘Obelisk’ can rightly belong up there with them too. – By Martyn Coppack

Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie – Travels in Constants Vol 24

Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie – Travels in Constants Vol 24

Travels in Constants Vol. 24 is full of evocative light and space encouraging the listener to indulge in mental journeys. Wear your headphones and enjoy the experience. By Daniela Patrizi

Interview: Dave Meros from Spock’s Beard

Spock’s Beard is about to release their 12th studio album ‘The Oblivion Particle’, which is more than enough reason for Dave Cooper to catch up with bassist Dave Meros to look back over the band’s impressive career and to see what the future holds for the much loved and critically acclaimed band.

Vattnet Viskar – Settler

Vattnet Viskar – Settler

For those who see music as art and life, ‘Settler’ is one of those albums which becomes part of your being. Intelligent, thought provoking and beautiful, it is also masterfully vicious and sonically threatening. All hail the new kings of post-black metal. – By Martyn Coppack

Motherfucker – Confetti

Motherfucker – Confetti

Motherfucker are a serious force to be reckoned with. Hopefully they won’t be held back in any way cause from the name to the album these ladies rock. – By Gary Jackson

Interview: Dylan Walker from Full of Hell

Interview: Dylan Walker from Full of Hell

Wombbath – Downfall Rising

Wombbath – Downfall Rising

Downfall Rising is a fun, engaging listen. Swedeath fans will feel like they’re in death metal heaven. – By Al Necro

Interview: Rich & Lindsey from Cosmic Carnage

Interview: Rich & Lindsey from Cosmic Carnage

With their second summer all dayer coming up very soon, we thought it was about time we sat down with Rich Collins and Lindsey Amos, the team behind the noise, and pop them a few questions. By Dan Salter

Giza – Migration

Giza – Migration

It’s good to hear how a band’s sound widens to incorporate new ideas and Giza have obviously allowed themselves the freedom especially with the guest musicians involved. Worth a listen. – By Geoff Topley

Degree of Arc – Reverie & Entropy

Degree of Arc – Reverie & Entropy

Reverie and Entropy. This album is completely beautiful. I sincerely hope it makes waves in the post-rock and gains some sort of notoriety. They worked hard, and deserve recognition. By Foofer

Pissgrave – Suicide Euphoria

Pissgrave – Suicide Euphoria

If and when you learn to love the sensation of alcohol numbing your open wound, infiltrating your seared flesh and exacerbating raw pain, you will get hooked on this. – By Al Necro
