Wallowing – Planet Loss

Where to start with a traditionally British doom band that have plunged headfirst into a dystopian sci-fi future fitting of the artwork they adorn their debut with? Wallowing’s debut full-length Planet Loss (the band’s first real recording of any merit) jams high-brow concepts of self and humanity’s folly into doom…

Doomsday // February 2018

Greetings heaviest of Heavy Bloggers! Welcome to Doomsday, our monthly roundup of all things slow, low, and demonically-toned. 2018 is already shaping up to be an incredible year for doom and, even though Heavy Blog has done an awesome job of giving some high profile full review treatments, here at…

Grind My Gears – Posers Inc. and Grind Against Trump

This edition of Grind My Gears belongs to an upcoming compilation with a more than deliberate message. A glance at the artwork should give you a clue as to what that message is. Some publications and blogs keep their cards pretty close to their chest when it comes to the burning issue of the day. We don’t. That’s why I’m using my space here to help promote an upcoming compilation from newly founded label Posers Inc. Grind Against Trump won’t solve any of these issues overnight but it’s a start. This compilation of grind, violence and ‘core stands for something when most are content with simply sitting and playing the voyeur. Organiser and label founder Benjamin James took some time out from his day to day life to answer a few questions about the compilation, who it will benefit and why it is a necessary step.

Grind My Gears – Dark Habits

OK. I’m challenging myself with this one. Taking twelve minutes to write about a twelve minute debut EP can and will be done. Just watch me, I don’t back down from a struggle, even if it’s with hate filled morons on the Internet who wanna send empty death threats to me. Mate, you’re a cunt and I hope that something heavy lands on your head. Something as heavy as this. Not so much grind today but this definitely gets my gears working. Hard. And it’s Scottish too. Moist.

Just Give Up On Everything And Listen To Vermin Womb

Stop sharing those try hard Nihilism memes (guilty) and pay attention. The twenty minutes of music available from Vermin Womb is hot to trot and ready to fuck your soul back into the ether. Grinding and bellowing out of Denver (the US capital of grind?), Primitive Man’s Ethan McCarthy spearheads another trio of life plunderers. Unlike the Man, Vermin Womb don’t do slow. Nah. They do full tilt, blasting death and grind. The sort of music that even your closest metal friends will still refer to as “just noise”. Fuck those friends. They don’t know a thing.
