Radare - Infinite Regress

Radare are a sludge/post-metal band from Germany with a very unique sound. They’re mixing heavy and dark parts with even darker but slower jazzy elements that might remind you of Bohren.


The (Fallen) Black Deer - Requiem

The first release for The (Fallen) Black Deer is out on Southern Records as part of their Latitudes sessions. These sessions consist of one day in the Southern Studios in which as much was done as possible and include other bands like White Magic, Grails and Miasma & The Carousel Of Headless Horses. This instrumental album was created as an alternative soundtrack to Kubrick's The Shining, and combines post-rock, post-metal and sludge.

Olde Growth - Olde Growth

"Several years in the making, Olde Growth’s self-titled debut weighs in with thick, heavy slabs of sludge, raw brutal energy, monolithic riffs and vocals that run the gamut from piercing screams to soft, nuanced and melodic. Amplifier drone fills the gaps between cuts which, massive like the Redwood giants, block out the sun and engulf all that lies within the radius of their shadow."

Megaton Leviathan - Megaton Leviathan

Megaton Leviathan is a drone/ metal band from Portland, Oregon that was started by A. Costa and Matt Brim. Costa and Brim began writing and recording songs in their basement in the fall of 2007. Since it’s inception Costa kept Megaton Leviathan’s sound dark and austere layered with eerie, cryptic vocals.

Heliotropes - III

"Heliotropes describe their sound as “poppy doom.” That moniker works better than anything I’d pull out, so I’m going to run with it. Principally, I like the potential for double entendre there. The inclination is to think “poppy” as in Justin Timberlake, but the label works just as well if you think “poppy” as in lotus eaters. Heliotropes hit both connotations, with a distinct ear for what makes the toe tap and an eye on swirling, psychotropic freakouts. " -

Elu Of The Nine - S/T

Elu of the Nine is a drone/doom metal band made up of members of Münn and Hell, as well as Romanian harsh noise artist Albino. They have released one demo on Woodsmoke.

MÖBIUS - Path of Nothingness

MÖBIUS is a Slovakian sludgy jam band that consists of a guitarist and a drummer.  There's not much more I know about them other than they sound great for being only two guys in the band.


Völva - Völva

Völva is a stoner/doom band from Akureyri, Iceland.
Völva was founded in October-November 2008.
The band members change their instruments between songs so the band has many different characters.
The band focuses on spiritual subjects and alternative religions. The band members are all practicing pagans and that often has a clear effect on their songs' theme.

Red Fang - Red Fang

From the bands bio -
Residing somewhere between Black Flag and Black Sabbath, Red Fang recall a time when rock was more urgent and horrifying. Synthesizing a variety of heavy music influences into their own distinct musical identity, the band easily shifts from barn-burning punk to mid-tempo, hyper-distorted bass destruction all while maintaining a cohesive sound. Red Fang create gigantic rock songs that are easy to listen to (not easy listening, mind you) and qualify the simultaneous usage of both the thinking and the banging head, which are usually mutually exclusive. Their instrumentation is fluid and effortless, and the vocals are delivered melodically and forcefully, with enough rasp and effect saturation to fit nicely within the music. Paired with elemental imagery, the lyrics are immense and satisfying without any pretense.

Doom in June Festival

Orthodox - Matse Avatar

From Orthodox's myspace:

"“Matse Avatar” is a warrior call powered by throbbing bass and circular riffing, evoking both OM and Amon Düll II leading galactic troops on their way to invade planet Earth with a subtle Rush reference thrown in the pot (can you spot it?), its flipside “YHVH” goes the exact opposite way, an almost contemplative instrumental of delicate beauty in pure Earth-style, like the calm before the storm."


Aun - VII

Aun would be the result if Nadja and Jesu had "relations."  Yes, it is actually that good.  Great drone, psych and sludgy atmospheric assaults on your ears!


Eibon - Entering Darkness

Eibon is a 5 pieces act featuring drowning bass player, Stephane Rivière and guitarist Georges Balafas on vocals. along with Jerome Lachaud, who was Stephane’s former bandmate & drummer in the french legendary doom-metal pioneer Garden of Silence.

Blueneck - The Fallen Host

the link was taken down by request

Blueneck - Scars of the Midwest

Formed in 2000, Blueneck are a reclusive four-piece based in North Somerset. Beginning their career on the West Country’s thriving live circuit, the band steadily dropped conventional gigging in favor of a mostly studio environment, where their music has been allowed to evolve in a direction unrestricted by what can be readily produced on stage. Steering away from structured songwriting, Blueneck’s music has developed into a cinematic soundscape of ambient atmospherics, dark skeletal rhythms and swirling crescendos, all created with analogue synths, sparse piano and huge, soaring guitars.
