Wild Throne – Blood Maker


Bandcamp | Facebook

Wild Throne viene de Bellingham, Washington y recientemente edito su primer ep “Blood Maker” bajo el sello Brutal Panda Records, es su primer ep como Wild Throne, antes llevaban por nombre Dog Shredder. La carrera de Wild Throne apenas empieza y ya les ha dado frutos, apareciendo en el SXSW y tocando con bandas como Black Tusk, Sanhet, y muchas otras.

Blood Maker consta de 3 canciones y por necesidad personal, tienes que escucharlo una y otra vez entra  por un largo periodo, hasta comprender su sonido. Lo mas fresco que he escuchado en algún tiempo, combinando post-hardcore, stoner metal, noise, progresivo y todo lo que se encuentre en medio de esos géneros, han creado una joya de ep para todos los que en algun momento no encontramos ninguna banda nueva que nos llame la atención. Algunos dicen que es una mezcla entre The Mars Volta y Baroness, y pudiera ser, es una mezcla de esos dos sonidos bien equilibrados, obviamente con su propio toque, y eso es lo que lo hace sonar original,

Acá un vídeo de una canción de este ep. Después de escucharlo, les aseguro que el próximo paso sera ir a bandcamp a escuchar por completo el ep.

S:t Erik- From Under The Tarn

Genre: Doom metal / Psychedelic / Stoner
Tracks: 5
Label: Spora Records
 S:t Erik comes from Uppsala, Sweden, a five pice band playing psychedelic/stoner doom since 2006. To be honest this is the first time i listen to the band and i was surprised by the great quality of music, ¨From Under The Tarn¨ it´s their first full lengt and this can be some of the best full lenghts of doom, even though there´s a long list of albums that was released this year, this can fight a place in the top 10. Their music is pretty catchy, creating cosmic atmospheres, violent head-banging and overall heavy riffages, an album you can´t let go if you like bands like Acid King, Om, Ufommamut or Electric Wizard. Highly recommended.

Nomega is formed in Timisoara, Romania, about a year and half ago and this is are their first recordings.

Great band from Lublin, Poland, their music is mainly influenced by old movies, 70’s music & magical herbs. If you like Electric Wizard, Belzebong or Acid King, you should give a listen to Dopelord.

Iron Mtn – Iron Mtn

Origin: United States
Year: 2012
Genre: Psychedelic Stoner Doom Metal
Tracks: 4
Label: Unsigned
Get a copy here.
Iron Mtn, a band from Los Angeles you should check out. These guys have played already with 16, Black Cobra, Zoroaster… just to name a few, don’t know why they released something before but this self titled ep is something you should play after work, during the smoke session. The 4 tracks starts downtuned/stoner/psychedelic and it ends the same, it’s an instrumental band and i don’t care about that, vocals are no needed. For fans of Electric Wizard, Black Sabbath, Cough or Zoroaster., highly recommended, headbanging in slow motion.
You can download this for free at their bandcamp, but remember this, hand numbered limit edition of 100 copies only , act fast.

Windhand – Windhand

Origin: United States
Year: 2011
Genre: Doom Metal | Psychedelic | Stoner
Tracks: 5
Label: Force Field Records
Buy: Here
After their brutal demo, they come back with this new album, the album contains the 2 tracks from the demo, and the new songs are in the same line, sounds sick, heavy as shit. Wish i can see them live one day and feel that fucking hate from their amps. Highly Recommended.

Drawers – All Is One

Origin: France
Year: 2011
Genre: Sludge Metal | Stoner
Tracks: 12
Label: Slow Burn Records
Buy: Here
“The first full-lengh from the French band Drawers called “All is One”. Concept album about a sailor crossing the ocean to find its nemesis, 12 titles with the accents to Heavy Sludge and Stoner in the line of Mastodon, Crowbar or Baroness.” Wanted to post this days ago, but i’ve been robotized and can’t do other thing than work, fucking shittty days. Highly Recommended.

Griever – Inferior

Origin: United States
Year: 2011
Genre: Hardcore|Post-Hardcore|Stoner
Tracks: 4
Label: Vitriol Records
Buy: Here
Griever are from San Diego, they come from the defunct band Lewd Acts. I think they are playing an interesting hardcore style incorporating more things than just hardcore, i can’t describe each thing on it cause it’s hard, but so far you can easily hear influence of post-hardcore, sludge all that packaged with some stoner riffages, i really like how they incorporate all those influence to create something new. I’ve been listening this for weeks, so highly recommend this ep, it’s time to listen an interesting project.  Favorite track: Home Again, Alone Again.

Cosmic Nod – Dilettant

Origin: Holland
Year: 2010
Genre: Psychedelic Doom|Stoner 
Tracks: 6
Label: Unsigned
Buy: No buy option
Sorry to those who send requests and aren’t posted, i’m going to post them asap! fucking work…Anyway, right now i discover this band and i want to share this with all of you, i don’t know if it’s an album or what, it was self recorded with a stereo room-mic but they sound pretty good. I don’t know much about the band, they are from Holland, a place were weed is legal and you buy it like buying a six pack. Cosmic Nod are 3 guys playing instrumental Psychedelic Doom with a stoner feeling, you feel how the wave of the music goes to your brain, or maybe i’m just tripping out, i really recommend this if you like bands like Cosmic Vishnu, Earth, Earthless, Om or even Cough. Roll up another or get your bong and enjoy this dope tunes. Highly Recommended.

The House Of Capricorn – Sign Of The Cloven Hoof

Origin: New Zealand

Year: 2010

Genre: Stoner | Sludge

Label: Swamps Of One Tree Hill

Buy: Here

Web: Myspace

I’m kinda new into this genre so I can’t give much info about this great record. The intro sounds like there’s some atmospheric Sludge or Post-Metal coming up but nope, that’s not what you get. Slow Stoner-riffing at it’s best (at least how I can tell), I first had to think of Baroness but that changed within the next seconds but there was another part that remembered me of Baroness, though. The vocals sound like Zakk Wylde to me, which is not a bad thing at all 😉

Anyway, crushing sound, nice stoner vocals and great riffs. This is some good stuff for Edgar I think, haha. Give this shit a listen! Link ripped off of Onkel Mezzo’s Brutal Ways.
