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 ...

Review: Slomatics – Future Echo Returns

For those that love music with no hope, no care, and no compromises, then come on in! We have something for you! Slomatics are more than likely a band people know ...

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 ...

Review: Bardus – Stella Porta

Bardus are a three piece band hailing from Philadelphia, having never heard of them and seeing the artwork for Stella Porta I found myself instantly interested. The artwork that adorns the album, the style their name is written, all of it just screams to the stoner/doom fan in me, so far so good. A quick look over to their facebook ...

Review: Desertfest 2016 split EP, Monster Magnet/Raging Speedhorn

The phenomenal Desertfest that resides in Camden, London once a year (and now for those lucky Europeans, Berlin, Germany and Antwerp, Belgium) seem to have found themselves filthy habit of creating a split 7” vinyl EPs in extremely limited numbers. Using only what they consider to be some of the most deserving and exciting of bands, this year is no ...

Review: Sealclubber – Stoical

From the name alone, this will not be everyone’s cup of tea. Sealclubber are just like the name sounds, harsh and nasty, but if that’s how you like your music then they are worth as much time as you can give. Formed in late 2012 in the Black Country, UK, Sealclubber have developed a gritty, aggressive sound. Despite how that ...

Live Review: Raging Speedhorn, Camden Underworld, London

Friday 27th November has been a chaotic day for me. I went into London bright and early to go to Winter Wonderland, to drink some viking blood and enjoy the Christmas spirit. I then arrived in Camden at around 4:30 and due to some miss-communication the people I had arranged to meet turned up later than I expected, but this ...
