I just read SF Weekly’s interview with Kristina Esfandiari, singer for King Woman, a band I was immediately in love with after hearing their Flenser Records debut EP Doubt. Even the name “King Woman” spoke to me as a statement of power and equality for women in metal, and in

Why do I feel like my brain is sliding down into a river of rotting emotions and putrid sounds? Maybe it’s because Leechmilk is swimming in and out of my ears!

I’m always amazed when a two-piece rocks harder than a 4- or 5- piece band. Denver’s ORYX know how to bring the pain with their colossal sound that shakes the listener to their core! The band have a split LP with LANGUISH coming out on Battleground Records in the very near future. Today

A few months back, I was lucky enough to catch a great gig back in Athens, which was kicked off nonetheless by a band called Mogg. Solidly standing on drone/doom, the band unleashed hell on stage, with a torturous pace, minimalistic rituals and sludge outbreak. Even though Mogg have not yet

This is one release I wasn’t expecting at all, but here it is, four years after a self-titled debut album: Love Sex Machine is back. To tell you the truth, I kind of forgot the band was still active until I saw the announcement for their new album Asexual Anger out March

Portland-based Lung Molde have offered us their first slab of “punishing life-negating doom metal,” put out by underground metal/punk sanctuary Caligari Records. Lung Molde drop six tracks of mid-paced, relatively concise (for the genre, anyhow) and harsh doom/sludge metal in under 40 minutes. Lung Molde’s sound is muggy, oppressive, and a bit too
