Interview: Dan Nightingale and Conor Marshall of Conjurer

There’re some sounds that feel like they’ve been in slumber for thousands of years, that are only now starting to stir; biding its time until the hour of reprisal draws near as it slowly claws from the dirt. Conjurer have unearthed a monstrosity in all its gruesome glory that they’ve titled Mire. A tapestry of filth it’s nothing short of ...

Witchcryer – Cry Witch

Female led bands are nothing new, however the number of those bands, the quality, and the talent of those that do exist seem to be on the rise and rise. No sub-genre seems to do the job better than in doom, a bit of a double edged sword however, with such a high pedigree of skill in this sub-genre, you ...

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, ...

Below - Upon a Pale Horse

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 ...
