The second interstellar crusade comes armed with long intense tracks, wailing fuzz guitars and a wealth of analogue synthesizers. The dominant flavour still veers towards druggy psych rock rather than out and out spacey drift. It may then come as little surprise that the title track is an absolute epic of crystal meth dementia!

Sixteen longs years after an “Epicurean Mass” in Rochester, New York, Orodruin returned as an unlikely trio with that same old magic in their fingertips. Developing that warm and fluid trajectory of their scarce split 12″ and EPs this is the impossible second album finally given form. By the gods, they nailed it good and proper…

Inspired by the ’60s Danish psychedelic singer and poet, Eik Skaloe,, who dreamed, wrote and sang about Nepal with his the band Steppeulvene, he left Copenhagen on a pilgrimage following the legendary Hippie Trail but chose to end his own life close to the Nepalese border in 1968.

Scandinavian Psych Rock from 1969! From the first distorted chord, it’s evident that a slippery, enthralling and compulsive trip lies ahead. The title track occupies the A-side in its entirety and the flip consists of five bluesy psychedelic rock cuts. Remastered from the original master tapes with liner notes on a gatefold sleeve…

The return of the bizarre! Deluge is no conventional read. Featuring sensational articles never requested, it explores Brazil versus The Super Gays, Journalist Murders, Young Boys with Knives, Naive Travelogues, Dictator Astro-charts and The Nine Myths about Pavlov’s Bitches you’d never believe. Confused? You should be! The design is as quirky as the content…

After a stunning debut album and rousing live performances the length and breadth of Ireland, this second opus had to impress. Interestingly enough, it is no simple extension of its epic predecessor. If anything, the mood is more melancholic. That weight has made the pace feel slower. Oppressive. Albeit with some sense of catharsis thanks to those heartfelt vocals. It’s only a matter of time before this band and these hymns seep into your blood…

Epic. Progressive. Metal. The divine seventh album, conceptually tight, emotionally deep and lauded universally, Dark Quarterer is winning the hearts of a second generation…

The four years wait between the first and second albums by these Aussies seemed unusually long. It may even have cost them momentum. The response has been somewhat muted. Perhaps it lacks the immediate banger appeal of “Angels in Black Leather” or the “Guns For Hire” title track. It certainly feels like more of a slow burner and will take a few spins before the beauty of these songs open up. Will you commit?
