Fangs Of The Molossus : Fangs Of The Molossus


Fangs Of The Molossus : Fangs Of The Molossus

Band name: Fangs Of The Molossus

Florentine band Fangs Of The Molossus are a four-piece describing themselves as '† Psychedelic Doom Hellhounds †'. Expect plenty of Stoner-vibed riffing, layered with plenty of effects, and space-rock interludes. Influences include Hawkwind, Loop, Swans, Danzig, and more, resulting in a sound similar to Ufomammut and Electric Wizard. I have to admit to being completely unaware of what a ‘molossus’ was, but a quick search online suggests that it was the name of a now extinct breed of dog used by the ancient Greeks and Romans for fighting and hunting. Indeed, the cover art of Fangs of the

Wardenclyffe : Control All Delete


Wardenclyffe : Control All Delete

Band name: Wardenclyffe

Formed by ex-members of The Doomsday Cult and Terrorama, Wardenclyffe are named after Nikola Tesla's experimental facility. They play Death/Doom, influenced by experience in the Death/Thrash field, with largely clean vocals and plenty of aggressive guitar-work. As a small curio, Wardenclyffe's demo from 2012 deserves a bit of a mention first of all. Released as a 'Soundtrack' to guitarist and vocalist Jacob Nordangård's doctoral thesis on "The Political History of Biofuels in the European Union", it can be safely assumed, as is claimed in their current release statement, 'it was probably the

Abysmal Growls Of Despair : Dark Days


Abysmal Growls Of Despair : Dark Days

Band name: Abysmal Growls Of Despair

Our guest of honour on the review platform today is Abysmal Growls of Despair (AGOD) - a solo-driven French Funeral Doom Metal outfit that is commandeered by an individual named Hangsvart. Considering that the band is still relatively in its early years of operation (formed in 2013), they have nevertheless managed to put out a fairly impressive number of releases. 'Dark Days' marks the band’s second full-length release and after having spent the last couple of weeks qualitatively with this album, I enthusiastically look forward to checking out the remaining spread of their doom-laden

Paid Charons Fare : Mourn (EP)


Paid Charons Fare : Mourn (EP)

Band name: Paid Charons Fare

Now, this is nice: very much so, in fact. Not 'nice', in the sense of Tennyson's jolly romps, like "And then my heart with pleasure fills/ And dances with the daffodils": think more along the lines of Byron's gloomy lament "And thou art dead, as young and fair/As aught of mortal birth", and take 'nice' to mean 'exquisitely dismal'. That's if any such qualification is needed after a glance at the graveyard angel statue of the cover - a monument, watching over ranks of crumbling headstones, with timeless and forlorn serenity. Nothing new in that, obviously: it's pretty much a certainty that

GOWLOn : he talked to me like I was real


GOWLOn : he talked to me like I was real

Band name: GOWLOn

Doom is a strange beast to properly define these days, stretching, as it does, between the far distant shores of glacier-slow total noise and gallopingly anthemic riff festivals. Even attempting to view Extreme and Trad styles as different beasts entirely doesn't narrow it down much: within both camps lie enough variety to make the genre boundaries more of an abstract attitude than a set of clear musical attributes. Sometimes, I see it most simply as an absence of any other, more rigid, label - the poor, dispossessed bastard musical children of disparate parents, united only by a stubbornly

R.E.T. : Coming Soon...


R.E.T. : Coming Soon...

Band name: R.E.T.

Reaction Extasy Trance are a long-running Czech ensemble playing accessible, professionally polished Gothic Metal, weaving an appealingly upbeat sound that draws influence from bands like Tiamat and Theatre of Tragedy. In their third decade of activity, R.E.T. have modernized a bit from their '90s roots while still offering the requisite sense of musical darkness. Currently an eight-piece, R.E.T.'s new album (and sixth overall), 'Coming Soon...', is a vocal showcase given solid support by a very capable band. Lead-off track 'Dialog' opens softly, with a gorgeous and patient synthesizer intro

Opium Warlords : Taste My Sword Of Understanding


Opium Warlords : Taste My Sword Of Understanding

Band name: Opium Warlords

Opium Warlords is the brainchild of Sami Albert Hynninen, AKA Albert Witchfinder, former bass player and vocalist for the seminal Finnish Traditional Doom metal band Reverend Bizarre. This latest effort from the musical manufacturing plant of Mr. Hynninen sees a continuation to the legacy of Reverend Bizarre in parts. The other, non-traditional-doom moments oscillate between the peculiar, the shamanic and the avant-garde. In general, this is Traditional Doom metal done pretty well, flirting with Drone fillers and Stoner/bluesy sections which you may not care for. The album also takes the very
