Church of Misery - Live at Roadburn 2009 (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Church of Misery - Live at Roadburn 2009 (IMPORT) (CD)



This is Church of Misery’s first live record, and it’s fitting that it would be from Roadburn, an environment in which the band is as appreciated as they’ll ever be, preaching not only to the converted, or to the choir, but to an entire order of boozed-up cult followers, gone mad on European weed and stoner riffs. For an unhinged act like Church of Misery -- who take the riff-riff-riff formula and actually make it sound dangerous -- it was the perfect setting. Through it all, Church of Misery do what they do best: lethal groove. I don’t know whether it’s their ongoing fascination with serial killers or just the brutality in how hard they hit their instruments, but there’s a heaviness underscoring Church of Misery. It’s almost sludge, but the stoner side of the guitar work, played here by Tom Sutton, who joined the band in the later half of the last decade, puts them in a category almost entirely their own. Well, theirs and Sabbath’s, anyway.

Church of Misery's Live at Roadburn is a killer live record that you don’t necessarily have to have seen the show to appreciate. The band defines the phrase “brutal stoner,” and on Live at Roadburn, it’s easy to see why they’ve garnered such a following over the last 15 years.

Conan - Mount Wrath: Live at Roadburn 2012 (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Conan - Mount Wrath: Live at Roadburn 2012 (IMPORT) (CD)



Conan has released the complete live set they played at Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands last year. There is nothing new on this live release as all songs have been released on the studio releases Monnos and Horseback Battle Hammer, but the great production of this live set and the chosen 6 songs they played makes this a fantastic “best-of” album. Conan is in my opinion the current best in combining ear-destroying, skull crushing and bowel vacating heavy filthy riffs with slow earth shattering pounding drums. Conan builds upon previously established foundations of metal, doom and sludge, but completely adds their own stamp to this.

One of Conan strong points in my opinion is drummer Paul “Rippled” O’Neill. It is not the most technical drumming he produces, but being a drummer myself I can only confirm how difficult it is to drum so slow for long stretches, suppressing the need to slightly speed up while the song is on-going. But most of all, he really brings a lot of depth to Conan’s heavy wall of guitar filth by adding lots of cymbal touches, like a little splash hit here and a china hit there. I always noticed this on the studio recordings, but the production on Mount Wrath is done perfectly, so that these cymbal details really come through very nicely. Next time you listen to Conan focus your ears open on the drums and you’ll know exactly what I mean.

According to some people, (this) was one of Roadburn’s best ever live sets. It is a great release, and any fan of heavy deep filthy doom/sludge should get this as you won’t be disappointed.

Death Alley - Live at Roadburn (180 gr.) (LP) Cover Art Death Alley - Live at Roadburn (180 gr.) (LP)

Limited edition on black vinyl.

It should come as no surprise that playing Roadburn is a very special honor, but in the case of Death Alley, playing there for a second time in 2016 formed a landmark in the band's history. Two years earlier, Death Alley experienced their actual birth, after the seeds for what the band would become were planted in Guy Tavares's dungeon in the preceding winter. Opening Roadburn 2014 in the Cul de Sac was where they played the repertoire leading to Black Magick Boogieland for the very first time. Now, after two turbulent years of arousing rockers all throughout Europe and the US, the band took Roadburn 2016 as the opportunity to show how there is not just one version of Death Alley. Forces are joined with guitar heroes from a close personal circle, with Oeds' The Devil's Blood years bringing Ron van Herpen to the stage, and Mühr consolidating Dennis' bond with Jevin de Groot. In this formation, Death Alley6 indulges in the drawn-out side of its musical spectrum. The record presents a rousing version of Selim Lemouchi's Œ'It's On' ­ tributary to an ever-inspiring force. The instrumental 666666 that builds on the existing musical ties between the Death Alley6 flows into the new Feeding the Lions a first taste of Death Alley¹s next chapter. The sense that Death Alley exists in multiple forms is ultimately rendered in the 22-minute version of ŒSupernatural Predator. Considering the history and theme of this song, there could have hardly been a more overpowering site than playing it in this formation at the quintessential Roadburn festival.

Earthless - Live at Roadburn (2CD) Cover Art Earthless - Live at Roadburn (2CD)



Earthless is the cream of the psychedelic rock crop, and while that opinion was solidified well before I heard Live at Roadburn, the San Diego-based band's latest reinforced that feeling tenfold.

If you like the long guitar solos on live versions of Led Zeppelin's "Dazed and Confused", instrumental psychedelic rock with a lot of thermamin, and never ending crescendos, you will love these guys from San Diego.

Elder - Live at Roadburn 2013 (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Elder - Live at Roadburn 2013 (IMPORT) (CD)

This set was recorded April 20, 2013 at the Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands.

“Blazing”, “The Next Level”, “Riff driven excellence”, “Cosmic melodies”, just some impressions that can be found in numerous reviews of the 2nd album Dead Roots Stirring (2011) from Boston-based Elder. So that already indicates that we have to deal with a very talented, young stoner-doom outfit here. Dead Roots Stirring was for me indeed a nice step further after their debut Elder from 2009. Now the power-trio is back with a live release recorded earlier this year at their stint on the famous Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, The Netherlands, which was their first time in Europe. For many visitors they were among the highlights of the festival so it was a wise step to use the recordings (mixed and mastered by Marcel van de Vondervoort) for a release.

After listening to a lot of ‘music for the head’ lately (progressive rock, experimental and avant-garde music etc.) this is a very warm return to the physical body, experiencing the more earthlier energy of the deep, groovy and muddy stoner rock sound. Evidently, the focus of the gig was pointed to their most recent Dead Roots Stirring release featuring four out of five tracks. With the addition of one track from their 2012 Spires Burn/Release EP and one track (the awe-inspiring 'Riddle of Steel pt.1'), from their debut album, Live At Roadburn 2013 is more then just a great introduction for all those not already familiar with this band. This electrifying live set (you can almost feel the sweat coming of the walls!) has absolutely much more to offer than just being a kind of compilation.

With only one track below the 10 minutes mark you know you’re in for a treat: an hour filled with colossal doomy jams. The rhythm section: Jack Donovan on bass and Matthew Couto on drums, lay down the groove for mesmerising riffs and psychedelic solos by guitarist Nicholas DiSalvo. And what’s more, within these instrumental wizardry there is actually a lot of melody which is often a problem in this kind of music. The trio really manages to enhance the original studio tracks, even the vocals of Nicholas sound much better to me. Bottomline: Elder delivered a stunning performance here that could be the final breakthrough of this band in the scene. Very recommended.

Kruger - Redemption Through Looseness (IMPORT) (LP) Cover Art Kruger - Redemption Through Looseness (IMPORT) (LP)

Limited edition of only 500 copies! Deluxe gatefold sleeve!

Rattling out of the blocks sounding like Entombed with their collective asses on fire, this is Kruger. Redemption Through Looseness is my first experience of Kruger, and as I found out earlier this week, like their fellow countrymen Zatokrev, this isn't about clean air, cheese with holes and Heidi. Switzerland can be just as dirty as the rest of the world when it wants to be. Kruger are, sort of, a hybrid of Entombed's more kick ass moments and a completely different, more melodic, stance. I'm loathed to throw the likes of Neurosis or Isis into the picture, but with the amount of atmosphere and twist and turns, I don't have much of a choice. If you are fed up of the sunny weather and the happier moods (generally) associated with music, then put on this slice of darkness and let your mood slip back into more gloomier times.

Brutal riffing, heavy steaming grooves, some intricate rhythms and breaks here and there, and a thick wall of sound. The intense powerful roars from singer Reno are catchy. His forceful bawls sometimes remind me a bit of Jan Chris de Koeijer (Gorefest), but Reno can (sometimes) also sing in a normal way. The impressive heavy production is mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge) and mastered by Alan Douches, a guy who also worked with Mastodon.

Redemption Through Looseness is not easily categorized. Kruger has some similarities to Mastodon, and also cite groups like Entombed and Neurosis as influences. The songs are intricate and complex, full of twists and turns. Kruger creates a soundscape that's experimental at times, but also has enough metal riffs and structure that it is still very accessible. This album has plenty of rawness and aggressiveness in both music and vocals, but also balances that with a dark, almost melancholy atmosphere and some melodic vocals.
