A Thousand Knives of Fire - The Last Train to Scornsville (CD) Cover Art A Thousand Knives of Fire - The Last Train to Scornsville (CD)

Features members from Halfway to Gone and Monster Magnet.

I suppose it's possible to keep A Thousand Knives of Fire separate from Halfway to Gone, but it won't be easy and it won't be done by me. Even though there's only one core member from Halfway (guitarist and now vocalist Lee Stuart, although drummer Danny Gollin receives credit alongside Monster Magnet's Bob Pantella), A Thousand Knives of Fire's sound is unmistakably similar to the New Jersey three-piece. The band may not sound as hell-bent, but they're certainly just as burly and boozy with plenty of that southern-by-way-of-Jersey rock charm. You're going to get your rollicking shit kickers, some groove-friendly stompers, and some down home balladry. If you've got a hankering for some dirty Jersey swamp rock, get on board The Last Train to Scornsville. It's worth the trip.

The album is purposefully divided into 2 parts: Side 1 and Side 2. Side 1 is definitely in the Halfway to Gone, dirty Southern Blues rawk vein. Fans of the old Halfway stuff and all that will feel right at home here. Side 2 is the "doomier" side. Jammed out, slower paced intrumentals. Heavy as fuck. Even some bits of guttural screaming. Big giant riffs. Big time fun. Seems like I could store this next to my Hackman CD.

Abrahma - Through the Dusty Paths of Our Lives (Black/Color) (2LP) Cover Art Abrahma - Through the Dusty Paths of Our Lives (Black/Color) (2LP)

Limited edition of only 500 copies. Side A/B is black. Side C/D is color. 180gr. vinyl.

Through The Dusty Paths Of Our Lives isn’t so much an album but a monolithic journey of stoner rock ecstasy, inducing mind bending psychedelic delirium, due to the presence ultra heavy riffs, proto-metal influences, acid tinged rock and a hint of alternative grunge. Yet despite the inspiration of the stoner rock progeny being present on the album, it remains fresh and vibrant; it is a thunderous tour de force.

Potent, majestic and choc full of hooks, this Parisian quartet have produced a master class of hypnotic, trippy groove based jams, which dazzles with cosmic spaced out hallucinogenic songs, packed to the rafters with ambience, soul and transcending everything you might have heard before. The first three tracks (“Neptune of Sorrow,” “Tears of the Sun,” “Dandelion Dust”) are just breath taking. Encapsulating dense bass grooves, with multifarious reverberation and texture, the grungy vocals add charisma and personality to the tracks, with layers of epic riffs and unyielding rhythmic drums.

This album continues with awe-inspiring vigour throughout the course of its 15 songs, Headless Horse with its Jeff Buckley tinged psychedelic arpeggio and tripped out vocals, circle and envelop the far reaches of your psyche. The titanic and labyrinthine track, The Maze to the Vodun trilogy, the entire record is a blistering exhibition of stoner rock brilliance. Forget Alcohsonic and all hail the new flesh, because Abrahma’s debut is a psychedelic, grunge infused masterpiece. Well done guys.

Acid King - Busse Woods (Re-issue) (CD) Cover Art Acid King - Busse Woods (Re-issue) (CD)

Includes 2 bonus tracks not found on the Man's Ruin version!!!

Acid King's Busse Woods makes a definitive statement of heaviness that more than makes up for their small number of releases. Interesting then, how this enormously dark and heavy CD is characterized by its laid back feel. There is no angst and bombast here, just super large fuzz riffs unfurled with taste and atmosphere... Just put on Busse (pronounced buss-ee) Woods and find out what she can do.

Acid King gets better every release. Their '97 split with Altamont contains one of the most massively oppressive doom instrumentals ever in "Phase II" and their latest Busse Woods is my favorite Man`s Ruin release of all time.

Like Electric Wizard and the Melvins, this is where rock music seperates itself completely from pop tradition. There are no songs at all, just riffs. This is really art music, existing completely outside traditional pop structures. Mood and atmosphere don't color these songs, they ARE the songs. It's basically the stoned-out space rock of early UFO and Hawkwind brought farther down the line.

Acid King - III (CD) Cover Art Acid King - III (CD)



Produced with the help of San Fransico's legendary engineer Billy Anderson, this is the album that Lori and Co. were born to make. Filled with thundering low end and fat ass riffs III will redefine the definition of the word heavy for years to come.

This is how it’s done. Acid King’s III is a testament to the heavy. They’re among the leaders of psychedelic stoner metal. Less spacey than label mates Sons of Otis, more jam-oriented than doom outfits like Ufomammut and Electric Wizard, Acid King exist in a thunderous low-end that shakes foundations even at the lowest volume. Listening to songs like “”Wheel Nation” or “On to Everafter” is like watching molasses pour out of a jar. It’s thick and viscous, pooling together in a meaty muck. III’s one of those albums that refuses to let go of your subconscious. Chalk it up to Lori S’s spectral croon and her dense guitar riffs, or the heavier than thou rhythm section of Joey Osbourne (drums) and Guy Pinhas (bass).

Awesome slow stoner doom from a band that's perfected what they do.

All Time High - Friends in High Places (CD) Cover Art All Time High - Friends in High Places (CD)



Fronted by VALIS bassist/vocalist Adrian Makins - who here plays guitar - the band runs through a warming 12 tracks of pop-based heavy alternative rock. All Time High’s heavier low end and classic rock tendencies give a richer context to the material than can be summed up in a comparison to any one band. Its solid, heavy rock execution and accomplished, accessible songwriting results in a satisfying listen whether or not you’re a fan of the style that birthed it.

Antler - Nothing That a Bullet Couldn't Cure (CD) Cover Art Antler - Nothing That a Bullet Couldn't Cure (CD)

Features Craig Riggs of Roadsaw.

It’s the line “It was the middle of March when the snow began to melt” that gives clue to Antler’s non-southern locale. Otherwise, it would be easy to mistake this Boston band for one that lives in the same area code as the Allman Brothers or Skynyrd. Their songs are whiskey-soaked in the bluesy rock that’s most commonly associated with the acts mentioned above, but not in the usual retro boogie rock fashion. They’re more low-key and laid back than that - besides, they’ve already done their bit for the gods of rock in bands like Roadsaw, Quintaine Americana, and Cracktorch. Instead, they use all facets of the band – lyrics, guitar, bass, drums, and some damn tasty keys – as a way of telling the sort of stories you can only learn from living a hard life on the road. Nothing That a Bullet Couldn't Cure fits the definition of classic rock. It’s timeless greatness.

Vocalist Craig Riggs has a great "rock voice", as displayed in Roadsaw. While his pipes are more restrained in Antler, he still has the knack for finding that perfect melody to lay down over top of whatever's going on behind him. Laid back, ballady roots rock with fantastic vocals. Makes for a very nice change of pace from the usual screaming and yelling that I go for.

Nothing That a Bullet Couldn't Cure picks up where Antler's self titled debut left off and takes the listener on an aural trip down memory lane. The heavy has been replaced by depth and the riotous rawk of youth has given way to a more developed sense of self-aware songwriting.

Axehandle - Self Titled (CD) Cover Art Axehandle - Self Titled (CD)

Featuring Erik Larson, Bryan Cox and Ryan Lake from Alabama Thunderpussy!

Here comes the debut from Axehandle, comprised of 3/5 of Alabama Thunderpussy (Erik Larson, Bryan Cox, and Ryan Lake). Larson, guitarist for ATP, joins Cox on drums and the two percussionists/drummers create a wall of rhythm that supports Lake’s bass and guitar playing. Larson, who previously sang on his solo album, does so again for Axehandle. It’s a gruff, almost hardcore type of singing that fits the songs well. And thanks to the outstanding production each instrument has a discernable presence. What the songs offer is a more psychedelic take on ATP’s southern-tinged rock.

Axehandle’s debut album is a disturbingly addictive barrage of musical blood avarice. Axehandle draws the listener in with their tribalistic layering of rythmns and then swings dynamically between melody and bone crushing rock the way most bands move from chorus to verse. It’s like being invited to a dinner party and then finding out you’re the main course.

Backwoods Payback - Momantha (CD) Cover Art Backwoods Payback - Momantha (CD)



The four-piece have a sound thatÆs familiar enough to stoner rockers, but not based solely on fuzz-drenched guitar or Kyuss-style desert speeding. ThereÆs something staid about Momantha; itÆs like sludge if sludge went to therapy and started the long process of making peace with itself. There are probably a host of bands one could cite as influences or from whom elements are taken and made part of Backwoods PaybackÆs style but the resulting brew is much harder to pin down.
