Conjurer

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 ...

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, ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...
