Ereb Altor – Nattramn

Ereb Altor – Nattramn

Overall ‘Nattramn’ is an epic sprawl of an album that takes you in many directions, but fuses its styles quite effortlessly. – By Tristan Lathey

Interview: Chris Kosnik from The Atomic Bitchwax

The Atomic Bitchwax released their new album ‘Gravitron’, which Chris Ball described as “the biggest no brainer of the year thus far.” With TAB about to start their European tour, which kicks off at London’s Desertfest, Chris asked bassist/singer Chris Kornik some questions.

The Midnight Ghost Train – Cold Was the Ground

The Midnight Ghost Train – Cold Was the Ground

This album is impressive on all fronts, built on a foundation of high-energy bluesy stoner rock riffs supplemented by fuzzy-but-sharp, extremely ear-pleasing guitar tone and some of the nastiest, most ferocious vocals the genre has ever seen. The Midnight Ghost Train is a band with personality, and it beams through on this album. – By John McLaughlin

Holy Serpent – Shroom Doom

Holy Serpent – Shroom Doom

What makes the quality of these songs even more worthy of praise is that these guys are young. We’re talking ‘not-born-when-Kyuss-first-started’ young. It is exciting to think of what they might come up with once they get older. – By Matt Butler

The Tangent – A Spark In The Aether

The Tangent – A Spark In The Aether

As it always is the case with The Tangent’s music – ‘A Spark In The Aether’ is an album for retro progressive rock lovers. It is music full of memories of the old 70s days and that is what it’s mainly about. – By Wolfgang Merx

Mylets – Arizona

Mylets – Arizona

Mylets is an utter genius and extremely talented young musician. ‘Arizona’ is another fine body of work. – By Geoff Topley

Interview: Maria Chiara Argirò Quintet

Maria Chiara Argirò Quintet create avant-garde jazz music, rich in texture and unique in direction.

Having now completed writing what is looking to be a stunning debut album, we catch up with composer Maria to find out more. By Jake Murray

Festival Review: Texas Independence Fest

Festival Review: Texas Independence Fest

Good times where had by all, I am really excited for the upcoming festival season here in Texas. Hopefully it will be as rad as this festival was! By Daniel Chavez

Demob Happy – Young & Numb EP

Demob Happy – Young & Numb EP

Let’s face it, Demob Happy are going to be huge. You can just tell. This year they will play clubs, next year it will be Reading Festival, the future is already mapped out. They deserve it though as they are very good at what they do and have a great ability of changing tack every now and again to keep you on your toes. By Martyn Coppack

Malthusian – Below the Hengiform

Malthusian – Below the Hengiform

‘Below the Hengiform’ is a towering early opus for Malthusian, achieving in three tracks what many bands can’t in an album. The tension and release of its music is rapturous, its lyrics sophisticated, and if they can manage to extend this level of quality onto their début LP they will be an unstoppable force. – By Sam Birkett

Wiegedood – De Doden Hebben Het Goed

Wiegedood – De Doden Hebben Het Goed

Wiegedood have managed to create a superb album, that is in parts harsh and bleak (to be expected from a band whose band translates as ‘cot death’), like standing facing a gale-force hailstorm, but in other parts gentle and empowering. – By Matt Butler

Black Lizard – Solarize

Black Lizard – Solarize

By rights this band should be huge, and in another time they would have been. Who are we to second guess though and maybe they have hit on a zeitgeist and we could be due a return to the heady days of the second summer of love. We can dream, can’t we? By Martyn Coppack

Thanatos – Global Purification

Thanatos – Global Purification

If you had to listen to one death metal album all year, let it be this one. You won’t regret giving yourself a reason to take some more Excedrin. – By Al Necro

Wino & Conny Ochs – Freedom Conspiracy

Wino & Conny Ochs – Freedom Conspiracy

‘Freedom Conspiracy’ is an emotional and brilliant work that proves again the talent of these two geniuses of the current music scene. – By Daniela Patrizi

At War With Self – Circadian Rhythm Disorder

At War With Self – Circadian Rhythm Disorder

An ambitious piece of work, and the amount of time and effort that Glenn Snelwar has put into it really shows. It may only appeal to existing fans of either artist, but they will not be disappointed. By Cameron Piko

Treedeon – Lowest Level Reincarnation

Treedeon – Lowest Level Reincarnation

This is sludge of a deep down dirty variety and it takes a strong stomach to put up with it. This won’t be for everyone but if you like your music unrelentingly heavy with a huge dose of shout vocals then this may just be for you. – By Martyn Coppack
