This child has grown up to be BISON MACHINE... and no one survives.

Black Rainbows - Holy Moon (Black) (IMPORT) (LP)
Limited edition on black vinyl.
Italian psychedelic rock band Black Rainbow's new album sees the trio leave their earlier stoner rock motifs for a sound that keeps with the HEAVY, but heads to the stars. 'Holy Moon' offers a deep brew of deep heavy space rock that follows the lineage of early Hawkwind through Loop and The Heads into White Hills, 'Monsters Of The Highway' recalls Monster Magnet and Thee Hypnotics with Gabriele Fiori excelling with his powered Detroit infused leads, 'Chakra Temple' slows things down over an Eastern drone worthy of both Simon House and The Black Sun Ensemble whilst 'The Hunter' adds a heavy Groundhogs boogie edge spiced up for 2013 in a similar vein to Ty Segall and Fuzz. 'If I Was A Bird' lessens the pace and adds a reverberating acoustic guitar as the centre piece to a tune that sounds a little like a distant Jack White vibing out to Jimmy Page.
Ending with their big muff ridden '90s sounding take on of MC5's 'Black To Comm' Holy Moon shows how Black Rainbows have grown away from stoner metal into a band steeped in space rock drones and that increasingly popular early '90s reimagining of Detroit rock.
Camel of Doom - Psychodramas (Purple) (IMPORT) (LP)
Limited edition of only 300 copies on translucent purple vinyl. Includes a download code.
Kris Clayton, a former live guitarist for experimental dirgers Esoteric, performed all the instruments on Psychodramas and handled much of the recording himself (vocals were captured by Esoteric's Greg Chandler), but the self-released, hour-long full-length wants nothing for texture, and is rich in its wash of heavy guitars and crushingly dense rhythms. Owing influence to the likes of Godflesh and the trailblazing cosmic doom of Ufomammut and YOB, extended tracks like "The Anger of Anguish" (13:21), "From the Sixth Tower" (11:47) and the massive apex of the penultimate "Machine of Annihilation" (21:09) hone in on a massive feel like space gone slow, Clayton‘s shouts echoing in from deep reaches while shorter set-pieces like the intro "To Purify the Air," "In This Arid Wilderness" and the outro "So it is Done" add to the ambience.
