You like riffs? You like melody? Are you a disciple of all things rawk? Then High Priest has exactly what you’re looking for and on Sanctum, they truly deliver those goods and more![Read more…]
Our love for Magnetic Eye Records has been well documented in these pages so it should come as no surprise that their latest offering, from Chicago’s These Beasts, is an aural walloping unlike any you’ve heard before.[Read more…]
There’s a lot of layers to Dan Dinsmore. When he’s not creating a glorious maelstrom of unique beats with The Clay People he can be found running his web design and development/PR/Marketing firm Overit or co-managing one of our favorite labels, Magnetic Eye Records, alongside founder Mike Vitali. Yet he still made time to talk to us about TCP’s resurgence and more and for that we are forever grateful. [Read more…]
It’s here! The moment you’ve all be waiting for! And instead of splitting it in half this year I decided to bombard you with one huge pile of word vomit featuring everything that got our goat in 2018. Enjoy! Because we definitely did (Links to reviews highlighted where applicable):
But first! [Read more…]
I’ve gotta be honest, okay? I’m not a big Pink Floyd fan. Like, at all. I remember having a few of their albums and seeking out the live Is There Anybody Out There? record back in 2000 because I had a gift certificate to some music store that was burning a hole in my pocket but beyond that?

A truly unholy album worthy of all the worshipping adjectives and curse words that will undoubtedly be hurled at it once it’s unveiled to the masses in full, Godfortune Dark Matters by Mountain Tamer is a gorgeous slab of glistening psychedelic sludge that’s as gruesome as it is groovy.
Phew! That was a mouthful!
But I digress. [Read more…]
In the age of short attention spans, an album that runs nineteen tracks is long to say the least. But fear not, faithful reader! Would we mention a nineteen track album and short attention span in the same sentence if there wasn’t a catch? [Read more…]
Beginning with a hearty jam that Clutch would thoroughly approve of, Brooklyn’s River Cult kick off their debut album with the walloping “Likelihood of Confusion” which in all likelihood will not leave listeners confused as to the rawkin’ intent of this trio. Concluding with a spacious excursion of sound that’s like a mix of “Spacegrass” and Sky Valley-era Kyuss, the lengthy opener still barely scratches the sonic surface of what’s to come. [Read more…]
