Niko Lehdontie from Kairon; IRSE!

Anoop Bhat had the rare chance to speak to Niko Lehdontie from Kairon; IRSE! and talk at length about the band’s origins, the evolution of their sound, their individual influences and of course, the new album among other things.

Kairon; IRSE! – Polysomn

Kairon;IRSE! isn’t just another heavy psychedelic band; they’re very much the progenitors of the next chapter in psychedelic music, and Polysomn makes for a compelling declaration.

Conan – Revengeance

All said and done, the album belts and Conan is in an interesting place right now, creatively. Where do they go from here? I don’t want to know. Hail Conan! – By Anoop Bhat

King Woman – Doubt

‘Doubt’ is a dark, ruminative album that takes pride in where it comes from. It is a slow, drippy explosion of heavy sounds. King Woman play a variety of doom that’s downcast, powerful and yet somehow instantly likeable and liberated. – By Anoop Bhat

Interview: Torpor

Anoop Bhat asked Lauren Mason and Nats Spada from Torpor some questions about the new album ‘From Nothing Comes Everything’ and more.

Torpor – From Nothing Comes Everything

If this record is anything to go by, Torpor is a name that you’re going to hear more of in the coming years. This stuff is heavy. – By Anoop Bhat

Drums Are For Parades / SardoniS – The Abyss Stares Back #3

This split is a mixed bag of ideas where both Drums Are For Parades and SardoniS showcase a fresher side of themselves in their own ways. Long story short, The Abyss Stares Back #3 is a hit. – By Anoop Bhat

Snailking – Storm

Heavy and thundering – two words to sum up what goes on for the 50 odd minutes that this Storm lasts. Snailking is a forward-thinking band who have delivered an important doom album that deserves every bit of your attention. – By Anoop Bhat
