...force of germany...

WOLVES CARRY MY NAME
SLUDGE/DOOM/POST-HARDCORE
GERMANY

WOLVES CARRY MY NAME is a five-piece Sludge band from Siegen/Germany. Born in late 2011, this profane cult intends to set the world's decline to music by arranging furious, heart bending and manifold soundscapes somewhere between brokenness, abomination and anger. The headstrong sound combines heavy Sludge/Stoner riffing with Ambient/Post-Rock elements, a slight Psychedelic/Blues touch and both desperate and hate driven vocals.

Doomsday

Doomraiser
Bloodrock Records
Doom-Metal
Italy

DOOMRAISER are a doom metal band from Italy and ERASING THE REMEMBRANCE is their second full length studio album. They were founded in 2003 with only one line-up change since then. At the time of their debut HEAVY DRUNKEN DOOM they seemed to have a more metal-like attitude but you can't claim that from their recent output. Listening to ERASING THE REMEMBRANCE the first time leaves you in a good mood and makes you want to slap the musicians on the back and tell them “well done”. 
At least if you like this kind of doom stuff. Nice, fluffy stoner rock of the heavier kind with several doom passages. Mostly the essentials - 70ies style guitars, bass, drums and appealing, relaxing vocals.
 There are spoken word passages, keyboards and FX too, but they are only used modestly. I like that. Certainly the musicians know how to use their instruments and how to create a groovy or creepy atmosphere. 


Well, apart from that nothing special... it seems. But if you give the album a closer look you will notice there's more under the surface. First of all it runs through your ears in one go, from the beginning to the end. This is actually a lot for a band to achieve! 
Listening the album several times you will notice that it has no flaws, no weak spots or fillers. No matter if it's a 2:45 acoustic track (“Head of the River”) or a 10min chunk of doom (“Another Black Day under the Dead Sun”) all their arrangements are beautifully put together without sounding artificial. 
The longer songs on this album feature several style and mood changes. If you want to get a grasp of what DOOMRAISER are about, listen to the 15min “Vanitas”. All in all, this is some major Doom Band!

...where is my mojo...

MOJO WAVES
Progressive/Acid/Sludge Rock
Finland

Mojo Waves is a power-trio rock group based in Helsinki, Finland. The band was formed in late 2011 but the musicians have been playing together for some years. 

Mojo Waves is the opposite of the common rock band. It's unpredictable, personal and energetic. Although influenced by vast amount of bands, its sound is unique, and its music doesn't fit in any one category. Although the band feels some sort of spiritual connection with the rock music of the past, it doesn't try to copy its influences. The main goal of the band is to make their own personal songs that they can be proud of and play as many gigs as possible. Live music is what music has always been about, and that's what the band loves most, too.



Get it here

"A incredible sound...crazy rock shit straight from finland..."Enjoy don't Destroy" is a crazy killer album...initially a little difficult but it is the right time after a shock...."Question" is my favourite song...the weard voice of  Arttu make's a good yob for the whole thing...it fit's exactly to the sound of Mojo Waves also the solo makes me wet...sound like Kylesa or Baroness(in the good times)...enjoy!"

SPEAKER EATER
SLUDGE
USA

Speaker Eater is a three-piece sludge metal band hailing from Wausau, Wisconsin. Although Speaker Eater aims to keep their songs short-and-sweet, the barrage of energy released is always thick and massively heavy. Matthew Cihaski’s soaring guitar fuzz and David Crook’s bass rumblings blend together to create a wall of sound that can not only be heard, but felt on a deeply visceral level. Thomas Seubert’s furious drumming and tasteful use of polyrhythms are the perfect compliment to their specific deluge of dissonance. Intimidating screams, deeply buried clean vocals, and the tasteful use of piano harmonies tie Speaker Eater’s creation into a uniquely complex sound. The band released their Self-Titled debut in November of 2011 and have been hard at work on their sophomore release, Lords, available in August of 2012.

BLACK SPACE RIDERS
STONER/PSYCH
GERMANY

In the fading last winter nights of 2008 JE, SLI, SAQ and CRIP entered a musty and mouldy basement for the first time together: The plan was simple: Jamming ... loud and heavy, rediscovering that nearly lost feeling of getting impassioned by a pushing, pulling, droning and moving wall of self-created sound. It worked!
In 2010 the self-titled debut-album was released. "Black Space Riders" triggered enthusiastic reviews around the globe and the band played a run of sweaty shows in Europe.
Now the space trip is in the second round: the whole conceptual approach jumps on for several million light years. The band is releasing their second album "Light is the new black" on the 16th of march 2012.
Everything belongs together: music and lyrics, band name, song title, cover artwork, sound: a "total vision" is creating strong, cartoon-like images!
Musically BLACK SPACE RIDERS are reaching for the stars behind the boundaries of the StonerSpaceDoom-universe ... Diversification: heavy, hard, hypnotic walls of sound change to atmospheric passages, followed by driving rockers and sternomastoid anthems. Extremes are explored: there are concise three-minute-punch-ups as well as slowly rising and long epics easily exceeding the eight-minute-limit.
There is whispering, singing, crooning, screaming and yelling. You will find wacky soundscapes as well as compact riffmonsters.
And: there is always the approach of writing "real songs" causing a certain degree of "accessibility" combined with a strong groove orientation.
The new album was recorded at "die Tonmeisterei" in Oldenbourg/Germany and boasts an incredibly rich, vibrant, warm, breathing and differentiated analog sound.
This is not at all "modern" and definitely not "retro": timeless rock music loving and developing its roots, taking the best of the traditions of the 70s, 80s and 90s and playing with the future.

also enjoy the tour 2013

"This album is a real murder disc...hot hot hot...from the beginning to the end a real blast.
Every second exciting and totally varied and spacey...let jump the apes out of your home music system and enjoy this holy and peaceful sound...a truelly ear feast "

...new crazy shit from the imperator "niko"...


JASTREB
CROATIA
OCCULT KRAUTROCK

Hailing from 13th century, these mystical troubadours failed to destroy the Earth in an apocalyptic event gone horribly awry.
After this failure, making music seemed the only way to get cosmic redemption and women.
By opening a diabolical rift and traveling to the future, they escaped the Catholic inquisition and are now getting ready for a second attempt at the aforementioned apocalyptic event.

GAREEDA
STONER ROCK
SCOTLAND

Formed in the first quarter of 2010 following turbulent times in not just the local music scene, but the UK, Gareeda formed over a mutual taste in music, principles and methods of consuming bourbon.
The original line-up of Stu Gordon, Tommy Concrete, Michael Branagh & Toni Martone quickly entered the studio and started writing the first album. Following an offer to join The Exploited as guitarist, lyricist and singer Tommy had to step aside due to touring commitments. Following a search of replacements, Gareeda recruited Stu Lillis to take the mic, bringing his own take on Tommy's outstanding lyrics.
Mixing all the best bits from blues, metal, rock and roll and booze, Gareeda's sound is unforgettable. This is a band that is here to stay. And although, the time from inception to public unveiling has been longer than other bands, it proves the intent and dedication.



listen and buy it here

"Gareeda are heavy dude's and make a really heavy sound too. Song's like "Unclean Yearning"
or "Leather Balaclava" are fuzzy and bombastic...Orange Goblin, Tyrant Lizard King's or Alabama Thunderpussy is very similar to GAREEDA. But it's never a blow to the face's. Good music with a  little pressure...but still respect for this first hot album. Thank's to the band and the other Stonerhead's out there"

....it's electric baby...

STONER ROCK
GERMANY

The tank is full, the engine is roaring and the bags are packed. ELECTRO BABY are unstoppable on their roadtrip. Dusty metal-riffs and flying sound-tapestries pioneer their journey towards the psycho-supernova. 

After one decade of a sonic roadtrip and with their 5th record the five power packs show once more, that they push their style through without reserve and don't give a ratt's ass about any frontiers of sub-genres. Stoner Rock, Doom Metal, Indie, as well as 70th Psychedelia settled in with ELECTRO BABY and founded an august family. 


Live the crowd has to face fat rock-walls, coupled with billowing space-guitars and punchy retro-wave-sounds. Thereby the vocal wonder El Matador feels free to descend to abyssal monsters and is crossing the Himalaya at the same time. With a new label and freshly laundered duds Messieurs Robmaster Flash, Kim Page, Mr. Olli Buster and The Incredible Drumgod prove what they have inside the can and what is the cherry on top. 

The addicted listenership of all rock genres can confidently catch the blow of ELECTRO BABY and get some asses kicked!

SOMEPLACE QUIET:
Psychy and dreamy beginning and a typical KoRn rhytm...ascending to a hardcore part who is completed by the chorus. Bamm!!!

HELLEVATOR: 
Slow and smooh hooks from Electro Baby...here comes the Dio scream again...awesome!!!
Orienal riffing and such an groove...that's what the people like!!!

EVILUTION:
Here comes the title track of the album...i listens intently...really great solo guitar with a lot of licks and hikes...a fitting end for this awesome album.

"All in all a capable album not only for stonerhead's...the spectrum is big so maybe old metalhead's will like the sound of the german dude's with the americanized image...the three B'  governs here...Beer!Bikes and Bitches! Buy their stuff,merch and visit the show's..."
