ELECTRIC WIZARD Black Masses CD/2xLP

While most contemporary doom sludge bands have been overlooked in my personal library, I’ll take a moment to justify the addition.

FINJARN AND JENSEN s/t CD/LP

The Finjarn and Jensen LP is another brilliant addition to the Shadoks catalog amongst a slew of Scandinavian reissues of late and alas Norway is not left out.

MOSES Changes CD/LP

Psychgeek By Aug 9, 2009, 20:34 --> EL PARAMO CD This instrumental psych guitar four-piece from Madrid, El Paramo has all the promise of grasping at monsterdom like a fine empranillo gathering dust in some remote Spanish castle.

Music Reviews Sleep Sun CD/LP reviewed by C.R.N. Psychgeek By Jul 29, 2009, 15:17 --> SLEEPY SUN Embrace CD/LP Embarrassingly, I shooed this LP during its first few seconds upon my ears as sometimes life's distractions ebb and flow with the moodiness of a rather moody person. Perhaps, the sequence of songs may have had […]
