Author & Punisher – Drone Machines 2xLP

So, ‘Drone Machines’ by Author & Punisher (aka Tristan Shone) was originally released in 2010 on…CD? Yeah, we weren’t sure either. What matters is the NOW, people. Seventh Rule has finally ushered in a double LP version of this massive and brutal recording. Fans of any kind of industrial or doom metal will be way […]

Sleep – Volume One LP

You may or may not have noticed that Sleep’s Volume One has been repressed. That’s about as seminal of a stoner rock record as any basement-dwelling, couch-bound vinyl collector could hope for – so maybe find a way to part with one of your 20 variations of Dopesmoker and pick this one up on wax. Essential. […]

Paul Chain – Mirror 2xLP

Paul Chain has recently received a career resurrection of sorts – with a prolific string of lovingly crafted reissues and rereleases put out by labels intent on alerting the masses to this other-worldy musician and master of many things doomy, proggy, thrashy and weird. You get all those bases covered by the collection of odds-and-ends […]

YOB ‘Clearing The Path To Ascend’ 2xLP Pre-order

Four sides, four songs. What else would you expect from YOB? The new 2xLP from these doom titans is now available to order at relapse.com and I, for one, can’t wait to get my hands on it. As usual, the most limited color is already gone. Suck it up, pal – these aren’t baseball cards.

Pallbearer – Foundations of Burden 2xLP

A new album from Pallbearer is nothing to turn your nose up at, lest it roll right over you and grind your bones into pixie dust. Insurmountable heaviness.

Pilgrim – II: Void Worship LP

Absolute doom from these lads on their second album, distilled into eight heavy doses and transcribed to vinyl, made available at indiemerch.com. Stream the album at terrorizer.com.

Om – Pilgrimage LP

Om’s last album as a stripped down duo, before Chris Hakius left the group. The replacement of Chris with Emil Amos saw a fairly major shift in the density of the group’s sound so fans of the original duo may be prone to tout this as their greatest moment. That’s not true, of course, but […]

Paul Chain – King Of The Dream / Ash LP Reissue

To say I’ve become a bit obsessed with “vintage” thrash and doom metal lately would be a bit of an understatement. Paul Chain aligns nicely with both of those interests and adds a heady dose of other-worldly psychedelia to the mix. Seeing as how Svart, High Roller and Buried By Time And Dust Records have […]
