Doom Metal

Electric Wizard - Time To Die (Spinefarm Records)

When Electric Wizard takes on the grim reaper in a time of great turmoil, you can bet that the results are not going to be for the faint of heart.

Cardinal Wyrm - Black Hole Gods (Own Label)

A solid slab of doom...

This album came out in the beginning of August, so I’m rather slow on the uptake this time around.

Ancient Altar - Ancient Altar (Midnite Collective)

Otherwordly doom from the city of angels.
Release Date: 
22 Jul 2014 (All day)

Lord Mantis- Death Mask (Profound Lore)

2014 churns out some more quality black-tar sludge.
Release Date: 
29 Apr 2014 (All day)

Okay, so 2014 is seriously turning into the year of doom.

Ogre - The Last Neanderthal (Minotauro Records)

Pure-bred doom, nothing more, nothing less.
Release Date: 
7 Mar 2014 - 11:30pm

NOSTALGIA ALERT!! I know, I know… I know the whole point of this ‘doom resurgence’ is a wholesale rejection of modern production mores and of an all-embracing acceptance of trad values.

Ghost, Witchgrinder, Hi-Fi Bar and Ballroom, Melbourne 23/01/2014
