35007 - Phase V (IMPORT) (LP) Cover Art 35007 - Phase V (IMPORT) (LP)

Deluxe gatefold sleeve.

If you’ve heard Liquid and the earlier EP, Sea of Tranquility, you can form some expectations without being way off. However, rather than putting out re-hashed material, the band goes further and delivers an album that is fresh and captivating in its own self. While the overall feel of Liquid was mellow, Phase V feels simply heavier. There is also plenty of variations, psychedelia, even groove. This album is a success on many levels. Not only did 35007 maintain their position by putting out yet another excellent, flawless album, but they’ve managed to fill that void in music that needs psyche provoking sounds, beautiful yet powerful melodies, perfect arrangement and masterful execution. This is the job only 35007 can do. And that’s what makes them and their latest album so special. They’ve delivered plenty of amazing material and although each of their previous four albums is nothing short of a masterpiece, Phase V might yet be hailed as their best.

Phase V is decidedly more mellow than Liquid and also free of long buildups. It really is a joy to listen to. It's seems to me to have a huge Pink Floyd influence with the keyboards, delicate guitar and stong basslines and of course the intricate layering and effects. If you've ever had any doubt about 35007 then Phase V will wash them away. Pelican? Karma to Burn? HA! Step forth 35007, for you are the new kings of instrumentalism!

It follows in the band's progression from their earlier work to Liquid. It is flowing, yet heavy, and very melodic. A few other things I really like about this album (and band) are their use of tempos and dynamics. The album builds to a crescendo near the end, swelling and then you are let down gracefully by the last track.

A Storm of Light - As the Valley of Death Becomes Us Our Silver Memories Fade (IMPORT) (2LP) Cover Art A Storm of Light - As the Valley of Death Becomes Us Our Silver Memories Fade (IMPORT) (2LP)

Guest appearances by Kim Thayil (Soundgarden), Jarobe (Swans), Kris Force (Amber Asylum), Nerissa Campbell, and members of Book of Knots, and U.S. Christmas.

Deluxe gatefold sleeve.


By initially combining elements of sludge and doom metal, post metal, and epic ambient soundscape experimental music, with their third album, “As the Valley of Death Becomes Us, Our Silver Memories Fade”, A Storm of Light have developed even further into a much more potent and cohesive unit with what ultimately is easily their strongest release to date. By embracing musical templates more associated with traditional metal (i.e. mid-era Metallica) and traditional rock (i.e. AC/DC, QOTSA), while still maintaining the band’s forward thinking progressive vibe, “As the Valley of Death Becomes Us...” presents a more song-oriented A Storm of Light while at the same time, a band that has incorporated a heavier, harder-hitting, and ultimately darker and more crushing vibe to their music. Out of all of his musical and artistic endeavors Graham has been involved in the new A Storm of Light album will stand as one of his most prominent accomplishments.

Altar of Plagues - Tides (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Altar of Plagues - Tides (IMPORT) (CD)



Ireland’s Altar of Plagues produced perhaps 2009’s best black metal debut album in the shape of the excellent White Tomb. Drawing on obvious influences like Wolves in the Throne Room, it achieved distinctive results with its rich textures and expanses of desolate blackened ambience, which were allowed to mingle with elements thrown in from leftfield (Watchers Restrained’s Khanate homage springs to mind). Tides picks up where that left off fairly seamlessly (though you won’t find anything quite as unexpected as avant-drone here), and those who wallowed in its melancholy atmosphere will find this as comfortable and unchallenging as a pair of old slippers.

Black Magician - Nature is the Devil's Church (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Black Magician - Nature is the Devil's Church (IMPORT) (CD)



Black Magician's first album, 'Nature is the Devil's Church', is doom as fucking fuck. This isn't your fusion doom, or your experimental doom, this is doom doom - traditional doom with heavy, slow riffs, glacial jams echoing across black tundras, emitted by bearded men, with SGs and Orange amps, playing at fucking Stonehenge. Taking cues from Black Sabbath, Cathedral, Saint Vitus and more recently Electric Wizard, Orange Goblin, and the sadly-defunct Reverend Bizarre, Black Magician are sent from Liverpool to take and sacrifice our children, and I say good luck to them. It's about fucking time. Doom is often seen as a jumping-off point into other genres - funereal doom, blackened doom, experimental doom, drone doom - which means that often, just plain old doom metal is neglected. Black Magician are here to prove that this need not be the case.

Black Magician seem to have cast a spell taking doom back to the time when it meant folk with long hair and flares listening to Cathedral. When mushroom freaks like Acrimony would be given column inches in Terrorizer. Y'know, when being into doom meant you were into 70s rock by default. The thing that really sets Black Magician apart is their use of the organ. Come on, who the hell doesn't like a good bit of fuzzy 70s organ? Brings to mind things like Jacula and other obscurities. They're not afraid to break out of the doom crawl tempo either. Basically, this is the real deal when it comes to doom. Loads of Black Sabbath and other old-fashioned doom riffage, fuzzy organs, long hair, hammer horror-esque lyrics about medieval England, flares, skulls. The song writing is spot on and so is the production. It's everything you want in a doom album.

Maybe it’s the cultural remnants of the Second Pandemic, but there’s just something even more miserable about classic British doom. The five-piece Black Magician released their debut album, Nature is the Devil’s Church, and throughout the record’s five tracks, the band capture the eerie stillness of a rolling English countryside, the ancient malevolence of pagan Christianity, and a healthy doses of Cathedral and Celtic Frost, comporting with long-forgotten demons and tried and true tonal weight.

Burning Star Core - The Very Heart of the World (CD) Cover Art Burning Star Core - The Very Heart of the World (CD)

Limited edition of only 1000 copies.

The Very Heart of the World is only Yeh's second widely available release, but its weary-eyed demeanor was forged over the course of a decade in the trenches. Yeh's scabrous creations recall Matthew Bower's work as Skullflower, but somehow they sound even more desolate -- like the works of Rachmaninoff dredged through the dust and clay of the rust belt. This time out, Yeh has enlisted members of Wolf Eyes, Hair Police and Von Hemmerling to help do his dirty bidding, and the additional firepower serves his compositions well: his mates' burbling tape loops, funereal organ dirges and scathing blasts of power electronics fill the gaps between Yeh's effects-laden violin, guitar and gong.

While each of the album's four compositions is built upon layers of mind-melting drone and descending arpeggios, Yeh is careful never to bore his haywire vessels into the ground, adding layers of molten feedback and carefully chosen (if utterly demented) melody lines to weave their way through the debris. If you're thinking that nothing on Earth can possibly sound as demonically austere as this, think again. Subtlety has never been Yeh's forte, and while the methods he uses to bend sound into terrifying new shapes are often beguiling, they're never the least bit beautiful. The Very Heart of the World is an ironically fitting title for an album that has no pulse, no feeling and no animus. It's unlikely to endear itself to many listeners, but it's backbreaking, often hideous forty minute trek that proves that human beings have only just scratched the surface of what sound can accomplish -- or in some cases, demolish.

The Very Heart of the World, Burning Star Core has created an incredibly heavy record, built on dense, layered drones, pulses, splintered vocals, and deep rhythms that euphorically build to total overload. With a lineup including the Hair Police front line and other luminaries from across the exploding Midwestern psych/noise underground, C. Spencer Yeh has assembled a group that seamlessly shifts through epic movements and pushes pure rock energy to undeniable, massive sound. Expanding on what was hinted at on the collaboration LP with Comets on Fire earlier this year, The Very Heart of the World is a definitive statement of the evolving Burning Star Core sound.
