Hey! Listen to Earthdiver!

Like everybody else in the world with a lick of sense, I was hanging out at home the other day and just flipping through Bandcamp. I’ve gotten this new habit of poking through the new releases and top sellers and just listening to a song or two if I like…

Barishi – Old Smoke

I think most ardent music consumers go through phases. Maybe you’ll be really into folk for a bit, move on to hip hop, something like that. I have that but at a micro level. I’ll be really into specific subgenres. I’ll listen to a bunch of stoner doom for a…

Forming the Void – Reverie

In a recent Heavy Blog AMA, the staff was asked about our listening and reviewing process. Specifically, our sense of how long it takes us to form an idea of how good an album is on our initial spin. This is a super great question to ask anyone, and an…

Acid Mammoth – Under Acid Hoof

Big fuzzy riffs with tons of bass and melodically shouted vocals. It’s a style that’s well established for very good reasons. It really connects with a lot of people who enjoy high energy fun with a little spacey vibe. On top of that, it’s great from the music creator’s standpoint,…

Spaceslug – Reign of the Orion

As many of the reviews we’re putting out this month will indicate, December frequently becomes a month where new music is ignored. There is a twofold reason for this. First, music journalists become laser-focused on end of the year wrap up posts. There’s an unfortunately good reason for that since…

Doomsday – November 2019

A most thankful of all days, fellow Heaviest of Bloggers! May your Thanksgiving dinner be much like a stoner doom song: tasty, big, and seemingly unending! For my part, I have brought a smorgasbord of riffs, low tunings, bass beats, and slow tempos for the feast. Indeed, we will “wrap…

Doomsday – October 2019

A most spooky and haunting greeting unto you all, heaviest of all bloggers! The days are shorter and the nights are longer. You might even be able to fit an entire funeral doom track in an evening at this season. I really love this time of year. First of all,…

Golden Core – Fimbultýr

Music is a funny thing sometimes. The definition of what qualifies as music is so open-ended that it seems like anything could really qualify. From the most complex of baroque classical suites to the 2 second long burst of noise that is Napalm Death’s classic “You Suffer”, music can truly…
