Live Uz Jsme Doma...the best of Czech! Since when did Miroslav turn into the blonde Gallagher?...and speaking of Gallagher, any updates on that melon crackin' son of a bitch?

Winterblut - Der 6. Danach

Ol'LH's first stab at it back in 1999, and this was a wildly different beast, more like an ambient black metal ritual....definitely going for baroque and hitting it out of the park. Symphonix and Teutonix combined with fantastic results!!

Endura - Black Eden

One of the darkest albums I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. I can remember quite a few nights of getting baked in my Civic and listening to "When God Becomes A Snake"...try it, you'll like it!!

Shinjuku Thief - The Witch Haven

Bombastic ambiance that borders on martial industrial at times, but retains just enough of the drone influence to keep everybody happy. I've been cranking this when I've been doing P90X...strangely good workout musick.

Detritivore - Pakt

Unique Norwegian forest drone noize with epic metal influences. Listen to this late at night when you're out of your mind and in a strange way.

Light Shall Prevail - Unearthen Hymns Of Revolt

Another EEE freakout releaase, much more classic black metal than Agathothodion, but don't fret cuz there's still plenty of moanin' and dronin' goin' down on this one I promise.

Agathothodion - Traum von Gott

From EEE Recordings...this label has released some classics in the niche of christian black metal. Listening to Traum Von Gott begs the question...Why is christian metal so droney? Are the musicians imitating the nascent buzz of the preacher during all those early morning services? Maybe they just indulged a bit too often in the sacramental wine. Maybe it's just a big fucking joke. Whatever the case, I think those moaned vocals sound pretty darn cool.

Vermonster - Spirit of Yma

Fuck me I like this smess, I really do! So crazy that it's working.

Humble Pie - Eat It

Well my friends International Pi(e) day is upon us and since I did such an obnoxiously wonderful post last year I figured I'd continue the have a big piece of Humble Pie (Frampton-less) and wash it down with a big mug of black coffee...sweetened with a little brown sugar if you please.

Re123+ - Magi

New Belarusian unknowns with quite the perplexing moniker. The bar for drone/doom has just been raised a few notches...fantastic stuff!! Read a nice interview with these folks.

Beherit - Electric Doom Synthesis

Nuclear Holocausto Vengeance's second stab at dark ambient (after the somewhat forgettable and unpronounceable H418ov21.C), and what an improvement! Somehow Mr. Vengeance managed to incorporate that lunar black metal feel from Drawing Down The Moon with dance beats and trip hop and form them into songs (and I do mean fully differentiated songs) that are, for the most part, totally outside of the black metal genre. AND this came out in 1995! Definitely ahead of it's time and an album that I think has aged particularly well.

Magma - Udu Wudu

My fav Magma release featuring one of the greatest songs of all time....behold the Zeuhls of grandeur!!

Xynfonica - A Feast For Famished Ravens

Tardcore has been ramped up a notch brothers and sisters. Improvised guitar-synths, after hours jazz and creepy growled intonations. Put out by the always solid Hekaloth. Handle with cares.

Za Frumi - Za Shum Ushatar Uglakh

Ha haha this band is crazy! You think Summoning is obsessed with LOTR, this band takes it to a whole nother level! The vocalizations are a highlight as it's all in orcish complete with wildass orc intonations. Hilarious, mesmerizing and delightful!

Buddy Rich & Gene Krupa - The Drum Battle At JATP

Two legends do battle...the victor? I'll let you be the judge.

Buddy Rich - The Bus Tapes

Jesus H Christ, playin' clams.

Ysigim - Whispers

Previously known as Obnoxiousness (awesome band name, right?) Ysigim present here a compendium of otherwordly atmospherix...Polish funereal doom/death steeped in heavy psychedelia. cool stuff.

The Skull Defekts - The Drone Drug

Drone Drug's sound is about as welcome as a kick to the groin, and it succeeds on that very fact alone. ENJOOOOY!!!

Ash Ra Tempel - Seven Up

Soundtrack to an LSD trip, featuring the cruise director himself Dr. Timothy Leary.

Comus - First Utterance

Definitely one of the darkest hippy albums ever made and definitely a personal fav. Check out these AMAZING lyrics:
Hymen hunter, hands of steel, crack you open and your red flesh peel
Pain procurer, eyes of fire pierce your womb and push still higher
Comus rape, Comus break sweet young virgin's virtue take
Naked flesh flowing hair her terror screams they cut the air
...nice, huh?

Death Ambient - Drunken Forest

Dramatic thundering sonic disintegration featuring a who's who of contemporary experimental musicians. Give avant-garde a chance!

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

Asbestoscape - Asbestoscape

Haunting ambience that will rock your nutz off. An enviable feat.

Monday, March 5, 2012

Suuri Shamaani - Mysteerien Maailma

Mo Finnish madness minimalism, this time from Beherit mainman Nuclear Holocausto. Even drone afficianados might hate this, but then again folks who are into drone hate just about everything so this might get a pass.

Sunday, March 4, 2012


A great one from mysterious and "Unholy" Finnish heart throb Tiermes.

Alvars Orkester - Woodtrip

As far as album titles go this is right on the money, and as far as mindfucks go this is a doozey.

Lustmord - Metavoid

No one does beautiful/disturbing quite like the inimitable Lustmord. Godly.

Skullflower - Birthdeath ep

Early Skullflower…this easily sits beside IIIrd Gatekeeper and Exquisite Fucking Boredom as my fav of Matt Bower’s malevolent hippie drone consortium.
