The Diamond Man Clan to release new studio album “Mediocre” on April 28th 2017

There is no doubt that Sweden can produce great rock. We all know Graveyard, In Flames and Refused etc., but so far the nation has been lacking a band that courageously combines honest lyrical poetry, the dirty darkness of stoner rock and killer riffs that get you completely hooked.   With one foot in the American South and the other firmly on Swedish soil,...

The Brainwashing Machine - Connections

Righty, this Italian band, not to be confused with a Colombian prog one, was formed in 2005, took a while – about seven years to release a proper debut after, an eponymous EP and returns with a sophomore now…   They are a modern rock act, with the odd alternative and stoner influences that fans of bands like The Quill and their ilk will find not...

Witchstone - Mortal Fear of Infinity

I wonder how long till the fad of 70s fawx hypsteria subsides and these neo-doom-drone-desert and similar bands go the way of dinosaurs…   Witchstone is a Canadian quintet that performs this 70s inspired 90s doom hybrid, sounding like it was recorded inside a big tank, with 3$ microphones and if the above description and lo-fi values and 4 songs all...

Hyborian to release debut album “Hyborian: Volume I” on March 17th 2017

Alternatively, it can be too simple, regurgitated or repetitive. It's easy to forget that putting out an accessible, quality heavy metal recording shouldn't be difficult....
