This one is a bit different but fucking cool. The band The Columbines is from Chicago. they play some wicked blues rock mixed with a bit of old school outlaw country and even some rock-a-billy. Think of it as Chicago’s version of Five Horse Johnson.
“The Columbines arrived with a splash, riding a flaming wicker bunny that fell from the sky into the icy waters of Lake Michigan. They play songs about love, songs about anger, songs about angry love and lovely anger, songs with birds, bees, cars, trains, and planes, songs about the devil you know and the devil you don’t.”

Rock n’ roll.
“You can hear everyone from Blue Cheer to the Stooges, early Pentagram, and smatterings of hardcore punk. Venus Blue describe themselves as a band with a “unique sound” that “boggles the mind”. They’re not wrong.”

There’s worse places to start, than to play your debut show opening for Japanese serial-killer obsessed CHURCH OF MISERY. Then again, since MOONLESS also later on did gigs with SAINT VITUS, PENTAGRAM and UFOMAMMUT and are about to unleash their brilliant debut on DOOMENTIA, one could say this was just a beginning…
The band started in Copenhagen, Denmark back in 2008 by people who cut their teeth in the local punkscene throughout the 00’s in bands such as No Hope For The Kids, Hjertestop, Amdi Petersens Armé and Village Idiot. People in the know will acknowledge these were important bands helping to put Denmark back on the international map of underground music.
‘Calling All Demons’ is accompanied by mindblowing coverart by Tue S. and the songs on this debut album are nothing short of a triumph, ready to step up at the top of the mountain of bodies that used to be called the stoner scene. It’s both old school yet fresh sounding slow bonecrushin’ rock’n’roll. Pure primal testosterone sludge done the right way, the MOONLESS way.

The Shepherd Propaganda:
1. Make EVIL music.
2. Destroy The Corporation.
3. Deploy stealthy EVIL theta waves which spread our message of doom.
Yes, we’re recruiting.
Instrumental doom metal. Thick and bassy.

Born To Hula have recently released a new album titled Tales of Love. I like this album because of the diversity. I remember with their last release all I could help but think was Queens of the Stone Age. I still think that with this album big time but it appears they’ve reached down and pulled a little Jimi Hendrix and other late 60’s, early 70’s psych rock in. There seems to be a little ode to Songs For The Deaf in the beginning of song 3, “No Regret” with the tuning of the radio to a station before the song starts. Tales of Love isn’t as heavy as their previous release but rocks out pretty hard. The desert rock like tunes keep you moving and grooving to the beat from start to finish. Look for a vinyl release this coming October.

The Heavy Eyes are back with a 2 track demo from their winter recording sessions. It’s only 2 songs (thus the “2”) but they already shows signs of a refined sound. Excellent music as always!

“Filled with heavy, exploding drum beats and a magical, ethereal blending of guitar, bass, and keys, Gift Horse has the ability to draw you in, capture your mind, and compel your imagination. Their songs carry menacing undertones and floating vocals that at once pick you up and mellow you out. Each melody offers a climax, backed by raging cymbals, which give way to atmospheric organ tones preparing you for the next climax and back around again.” – The Silver Tongue
I tell you thise is different and pretty fricking sweet. Think Weird Owl, meets Hopewell meets The Main Street Gospel. That’s kinda what Gift Horse’s sound is all about. Nice psychedelics and shoegaze wrapped up into one trippy ball.

The hard, strong sound impact of the Genoese (Italy) band, Gandhi’s Gunn (Hobo, vocals; Scazzi, guitar; Maso, bass; Andrea, drums), is intensely inspired by the forcible sound of the first American Stoner Rock undercurrent, such as Corrosion of Conformity, Fu Manchu and Clutch, while frequently exploring more visionary and psychedelic territories.
Considered a point of reference on the Italian Stoner Rock scene, Gandhi’s Gunn have had two years of intense live activity on stage with bands of worldwide fame such as Church of Misery (Japan), Los Natas (Argentina), Acid King (USA), Atomic Bitchwax (USA), 16 (USA), Nadja (Canada), Amen Ra (Belgium) and Clutch (USA) & more.
The Longer The Beard The Harder The Sound was released less than week ago.

Google Translate foolishly translates their little bio to:
This group Vitoria only be described as unstable. Have been renamed so many times that finances have been lost track and can finally collect the black concert. This has turned around their careers and now they decidios to do something with their fucking lives. This is what has gone.
Ok, the translation is a bit fucked but who cares, we’re talking music here. You see and feel with your ears. The band is Countach and this is their EP Countach!. The stream is only 4 songs. There’s 7 total but you have to dish out 1 euro. Just one!

Bonejackal plays rock and roll, no vocals, just raw to the nerve UFO rock and roll. Heavily influenced by classic rock the trio also blends elements of early psychedelic acts such as Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath and the proto-punk sounds of the Stooges, and the MC5.

One could say that the sound is reminiscent of QOTSA and mister Bjork, but this rediscovery of the scene is certainly no simple copy. Rather, it approaches it in new ways, celebrating groove rock, blues vibes and rhythm n’ drive in the process. This comes across in a
really visceral way.
Born to Hula present their 2nd official release, “Tales of Love”. Not as hard as “Sunrise Radio”, yet the same struggle of mind and feeling remains on this kamasutra-fuzz record. Another step in the entwining of instrumentation and messaging. Serious? Maybe. Never sure, but always aware! Eight songs for your aural pleasure. Some instrumental and relaxed. Others angry and bittersweet. All, simple and to the point. To be yourself is what they need. Viscerally, the notes try to reach you, to echo your emotion. Not trying to say something new, but confirm what is already there. Not trying to make something new, but make you feel, again. Things happen that are worth turning into music, and some of them are here. That is all! A kind of fun you need to have around. A tantra you’ll never forget!

Buried Sleeper are a doom metal band from the UK. Slow played, drawn out and down tuned is their specialty. This is an album that you can really get into, groove your head along to the beat and get lost up in the moment with.

Lonely Crowd is heavy and aggressive. The riffs groove and the drumming is addictive. Many times I found myself in the role of air drumming to this album. “Think Fast” and “Black Cloud” are 2 standout tracks that I found myself doing this to. The album doesn’t give up either. It’s full on balls to the wall from start to finish. There is no slow or sappy songs to break up the flow. It flows real nicely from start to finish. This album is pretty aggressive to begin with so you may not be able to get all the way through it if you’re to weak. Listen for yourself on the player below but be warned, it’s not for the feint of heart.

Ugly ritual lo-fi Doom, inspired by our Moon Mistress. The fathomless and eternal flame-coloured eyes of Goddess look at us. Pray Her.
Currently only a few tracks are up for streaming but the entire album kicks some major ass. While the majority of the album is instrumental, the highlight lies within its bone crushing, face melting and spine tingling riffs. It’s huge, it’s massive, it’s everything that embodies doom metal.

Well it’s that time of the year again. It’s the stoner holiday, the infamous 4/20. There are many stories to it’s origin. No one really knows for sure where 4:20 came from but who cares? I don’t. Man. So, light up a fatty, roll your phatest fatty you can, inhale and relax to these awesome stoner tunes. Pass the chips man.
Blue Snaggletooth are a self-proclaimed Psychedelic D&D Rock band from Ann Arbor, Michigan. This four-piece psychedelic proto-metal ensemble is heavily influenced by the sounds of Black Sabbath and Hawkwind, while they use their turn at the mic to paint aural pictures not unlike Frank Frazetta and Larry Elmore.

“Prisma Circus first came to be in late 2010 as the creation of Alex Carmona Blanco (drums) and Joaquin Escudero Arce (bass/vocals) in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Although the acid rock band had an incomplete line up, they decided to continue working and recording an opening EP. With the help of friends (Jordi Rodriguez Gallego, Aureli Rubio Panades and Oscar Garcia Albizu) guitar tracks were added to the EP to complete the sound. Oscar Garcia Albizu (guitar) later joined as a permanent addition to the band.
Prisma Circus, inspired by the 60’s and 70’s psychedelic rock era, uses the lyrics as tales to introduce the instrumental music. Heavy riffs, loud drums, blues-filled bass lines, and fuzzy-wah guitar solos all insure to set the psychedelic mood in every track.
Currently Barcelona’s trio is planning to work on the road and record a full length album later this year.”

The Kamals are a 5-piece rock n’ soul band hailing from Oklahoma City, OK. They are comprised of a group of close friends all with strong musical backgrounds. The idea of the group actually coming together wasn’t realized until some casual jamming between recording sessions at Old Dog Records around August of 2011. Seeing as how all members were highly experienced playings shows and writing music in other outfits (not to mention they have been jamming together for over 5 years), they decided to pool their resources together and try something new. With everyone having nearly the same base influences and a collective idea of what they wanted to do, it wasn’t hard for the group to come up with a diversified set they could play live, playing with the likes of The Trading Co., The Black Jack Gypsys, Jonathon Tyler and the Northern Lights, and Bright Light Social Hour. River Myers, Trey Allen, Zak Kaczka, Loren Williams, and Brad Nance are still recording and writing their own material, with a debut E.P. released in (more…)
