Poseidon Prologue

Poseidon – Prologue

Poseidon; Proper noun, Greek mythology, the God of the sea, water, earthquakes, and horses, son of Cronus and Rhea and brother of Zeus. He is often depicted with a trident in hand. Any band willing to take on a name with that describes such a thing really needs to be something huge and special. Thankfully, these guys are. Their debut ...

Review: Crawl – This Sad Cadav’r

Texas sludge/noise metal group Crawl bring us their latest opus, This Sad Cadv’r. This Sad Cadav’r is made up of three tracks, each simply titled ‘I’, ‘II’ and ‘III’. Maybe because it doesn’t need to go any further –  the songs easily speak for themselves. This EP is dark, dank and depraved. It is roughly 30 minutes of heavy, slow, ...

Review: Below – Upon A Pale Horse

Doom metal according to Wikipedia: “Doom metal is an extreme style of heavy metal music that typically uses slower tempos, low-tuned guitars and a much “thicker” or “heavier” sound than other metal genres.” Most of us know not to take things off the internet as gospel, but that as a description is pretty damn close when taking into account a ...

Vokonis – The Sunken Djinn

When you find a label new to you, and they seem to have been behind every release of the year you love so far, you seem to set a higher level of expectation. Ripple music have been behind the releases from White Light Cemetery, Steak, Mothership, Palerider and many more, but recently was the time of Vokonis. I’d already heard ...

The Darkhorse – The Carcass of the Sun will Sleep

Review: The Darkhorse – The Carcass of the Sun will Sleep

Back in 2014, I was having a blast at Bloodstock as I always do, a 3-day hangover usually started by a night of serious liver abuse in Brewdog Birmingham the day before hand, and reliably topped up during the festival. The weekend would never work out well though if it wasn’t thanks to the regular cups of tea over at ...

White Light Cemetery – Careful What You Wish For

Review: White Light Cemetery – Careful What You Wish For

White Light Cemetery I’ll admit, I had never heard of at the time the album was available for review. Described as ‘Southern brother-dudes, cranking out dirty metal and corrosion steel’. Well, with a description like that, what could have been better for to ease my post-Christmas/New Years hangover? The down side is, it hasn’t eased the hangover blues, thankfully it ...

Review: Asatta – Spiralling into Oblivion

It’s been far too long since I have had a moment’s peace and quiet to sit down and check out some new music, so as soon as I saw our RAMzine promo-list I snapped at the opportunity knowing things are about to get a whole lot busier as we come to the end of the festival season and lots of ...

Live: Desertfest 2016

Come the end of April, Camden town descends into a sea of long hair, beards and beer guzzling monsters. Catering for the Stoner/Doom/Sludge/Psychedelic rock crowd across multiple venues, Desertfest finds its home in the heart of it all, cutting off and taking over Greenland Place (just off the side street by Worlds End) and having the Black Heart at the ...
