Since 2007 San Francisco-based occult Dark Ambient/Doom cult Common Eider, King Eider have been creating some of the most majestic and blood-chilling abstract doom ever put to tape. Sprinkled across a string of nearly impossible to find and hand-crafted cassettes, 7″s and a few 12″s, over the years, this band’s music has levitated from an
Calling all Doom Heads… give me your ears for around 20 minutes and you will be damn happy you did! Earlier this year, we turned you on to ENDLESS FLOODS, and now they are back with a stellar split featuring UUR. How many times have I listened to the record today?
SALEM’S POT is one of those bands we’ve had our eye on ever since Dan over at Riding Easy put them on our radar. For the past few weeks, we’ve been digging into their new album, Pronounce This!, and these psychedelic doom mongers didn’t disappoint us with this weird trip,
TERRA TENEBROSA’s new The Reverses is a modern day classic that soars above any genre and can not be put in a box. Which is why I just be blasting at least once a day for the next year…I’m not surprised that Debemur Morti Productions is the label home of this
Many hearts around the underground metal are HEAVY with the news of Adrian J. Guerra‘s passing. He was one of the founding members of Seattle’s BELL WITCH and an all around nice person. The time I spent with him was brief, but I will never forget his smile – his energy was awesome!
What kind of music do you listen to to expand your mind; what sounds give it the space it needs to wonder off into vast places? Personally, I listen to bands like AELTER, because the beautiful morbid melodies that this band conjures up are more than majestic. In 2011, I wrote
At long last, the illustrious lineup for this year’s edition of Vancouver’s own feel-good hit-of-the-summer-party, Burger Fest, is announced. Undisputably the heaviest bill in the annual event’s history, in its sixth year Burger Fest takes its mantra of “Burgers, Bands, Beers” to a whole new level of crushing, with more
Pentagram is on tour now with the amazing King Woman and Wax Dolls, and we are stoked to have a pair of tickets to giveaway for their Santa Ana show on May 26th at the Constellation Room! If you want to be one of the lucky ones at this show,
On June 16th – 18th of 2016, The COVENANT Festival takes place in Vancouver B.C. for it’s second year straight. I thought that the first year was off of the chain, but this year’s line up makes this one of the strongest fests to take place on the West Coast.
The names Stuart Dahlquist and Edgy59 should ring a bell if you hold the more adventurous realms of doom and drone metal in high regard. Previously, Stuart played bass in the cvlt-approved Burning Witch, and then shifted focused to his (highly underrated) Asva project. Ex and current band mate, Edgy59, is
It’s time to all hail the mighty riffs of BONGRIPPER because this band brings the HEAVY NON STOP! All you have to do is peep their discography to understand how important they are to modern DOOM, and they have done it all on their own terms! BONGRIPPER will be performing at
Released on April 1st, this split by Montreal’s Dark Circles and Oakland, CA’s Abstracter is one terrifying release, with some of the best output by either band. Made up of six songs, the split contains animalistic D-beat courtesy of the former and megaton doom courtesy of Abstracter, each half lovingly flavored with
