UpCDownC – Black Dracula video

This terror train of film-noir-horror-post-metal debauchery, known as UpCDownC released a video last year for their track, Black Dracula, as featured on the gloom-laden terror of last year’s I, Awake and their self-titled EP from 2015.

Nervous Mothers / Art Of Burning Water – Split 7″

Nervous Mothers then – four Belgian dudes clattering through some brutal, raw and bleeding power violence that will make you drop your guts and Art Of Burning Water, who take us on a trip through the rotting and darkened forest of doom.

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard – Noeth Ac Anoeth

Just take a moment and let that name sink in. It’s good, isn’t it? I mean, LOOK at it. It’s majestic. Powerful. CRUSHING. Sublimely brilliant in every way. Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard are a four piece from Wrexham who may or may not be druids. I’m reliably informed that their album title, Noeth Ac Anoeth is a old Welsh phrase, which means ‘an abode of existence’ or ‘Hades crossed with nothingness’

Robot Death Monkey – Booze Cruise

Fancy getting baked? Of course you do! Fancy downing several beers and crushing the empty cans into your skull? You bet! Fancy being an absolute legend? Where do I sign? Edinburgh/Newcastle shred-masters Robot Death Monkey can make all of these dreams that seem so far out of reach a reality…

UpCDownC – UpCDownC

This is a very dark path indeed. I suppose that the week of summer we had back in July is all we’re going to get as we descend into the realms of autumn. What better way then to soundtrack that by listening to something that will not only make you constantly look over your shoulder in fear and head-bang like a bastard. UpCDownC are that band.

Funerals – Human Ruin

The name alone gives you an idea of their musical inkling. Somewhere around the great swirling whirlpool and the crashing waves where detuned, caustic hardcore meets and doom metal, Funerals have dredged up a sound that mixes both these styles together, in a volatile, frothing beaker of rage and meaty riffage.

Floor – Oblation

So, you’re waiting for the new Torche album huh? This should quench that thirst. Steve Brooks and Co. return with more riffs, sludge and doom-pop, including a songs about a war party, Don Quioxte’s horse and finding that perfect man. Floor are back – let’s get lower than before.

Kira – Persona EP

Despite their sweet-sounding name, Sweden’s Kira are anything but delicate. It’s not so much as no love lost, as love thrown under the car and set on fire. Kira are about the scratching, blast of tender, pulsating dread and terror.
