Download- Live in Zbraslav (1989)

Todays weather has offered nothing but greyscales, sort of how it seems to have been in Zbraslav around the spring of 89′ when the blasphemous tones of Master’s Hammer, featured in the photo, was caught on tape! These Czech black metalers have been turning the cross upside down since the unholy year of 1987. The bands headstart into black metal and the fact that they’re from the Czech republic does of course add positively to the bands kvltitude. I’m going to be a bit bold and state that whilst this might not be Master’s Hammer’s greatest moment, you’ll probably find it to be grimly low-fi and relentless enough  to satisfy you’re crawings for obscure metal from eastern europe.

<br />Master
Is that a wheelchair? a sled? or the throne of tyrants?

Negative surprise of the day- I’m to poor to see Toxic Holocaust perform live in Malmö tonight.
Positive surprise of the day- My local record store has a bunch of cheap Inquisition albums that I’m about to lay my hands on as soon as my financial situation is improved!

Track of the day: The Curse of Millhaven with Nick Cave and the bad seeds

Earth- The Bees made honey in the Lion’s skull.

Download The Bees made honey in the Lion’s skull (2008)

Taste the honey-dripping drones of Earth‘s fifth fullenght album.
I couldn’t think of a more soothing and calm album than this one! This is the true essence of drone/doom. Mighty melodies and epic soundscapes blessing the listener with feelings of redemption and calm that lasts no less than 53 minutes. This album is a lot less metal than many of their previous releases and that suits me just fine, I like this sound, I like the feelings i derive from it and I like dozing off into my own head with this album in the background.

Quicksilver Messenger Service- Just for Love

Posted in Psychedelica, Rock'n Roll with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on 22/11/2011 by co)))ven


Download- Just for Love (1970) Capitol Records

Love and flowers pouring into my ears in the form of sweet psychedelic tunes bursting forth from ”Just for Love”, QMS fourth album! Released in August 1970, it marks the culmination of a transition from the extended, blues and jazz inspired improvisations of the bands previous albums to a more traditional rock sound. Founding member Dino Valenti, who returned to the band after a stint in prison on drug charges, was largely responsible for the new harder sound. The album features one of the most famous songs by QMS, the track ”Fresh Air”.  ”Cobra” and ”Just for Love” are some other tracks I’d recommend on this spectacular piece of San Fransisco psych!

Death-Symbolic

Download- Symbolic (1995)

As the name of the band suggest it’s death metal.
This was one of the very first death metal bands to emerge and it was mainly the project of legendary death metal pioneer Chuck Chuldiner who sadly past away from brain cancer in 2001.
Symbolic is part of the bands later period and marks a change in sound from the classic Death sound.. I had mixed feelings about this album for a long time. I prefere the raw and aggresive sound of early Death releases, this album however is a fine display of technicality and control. Chuck was undoubtedly a real guitar fiend!
With the years I’ve become sort of fond of Symbolic  though. Today I hold it as my favourite Death album along with their first release ”Scream Bloody Gore”.

The Guess Who- American Woman

Posted in Psychedelica, Rock'n Roll with tags , , , , , , , , , , on 14/11/2011 by co)))ven


Download- American Woman (1970) RCA

This album should be in everyone’s collection, even if that collection is mp3s on a hard drive. American Woman is a real classic blast from the past. I mean, who haven’t heard the title track once or twice in their life? ” American woman, stay away from meeehee”
If you didn’t know, the song came to being during a live jam session.
The reason for me posting this album though is that I dont think the rest of the album should be overshadowed by the ”hit-track”. If you should decide to delve into the rest of the album you would find eight hunky tracks of blues inspired rawk.

Feel the heavy weight of Humpty’s blues.

13/Grief 7″ Split

Download- Split (1993) Grievance

A brutal somewhat known death/sludge/doom metal split with two decent bands! Liz Buckingham who handles the six strings in Electric Wizard were in on this project playing with 13.
It’s simple and down to earth, no fancy stuff. Three relentlessly slow tracks.  I like it!

Boris- Heavy Rocks II

Posted in Stoner Rock, Stoner/Doom with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 08/11/2011 by co)))ven


Download- Heavy Rocks II (2011) Sargent House

Frantic fuzz rock from japanese band Boris! Heavy Rocks II is their 16th album, they usually come up with three albums a year, and as the title suggests it’s a bit heavier than the stuff from their first era. If their early albums were based on doom and drone influences this has more of a punk-ish stoner rock approach. The band themselves has stated that with this release they’re trying to recapture that heavy sound they had on the album ”Heavy Rocks”, thus naming it Heavy Rocks II. Not sure if they succeded though, I haven’t listened to Heavy Rocks, but I can say that this is the best stuff I’ve heard with Boris so far and when I saw them live in Stockholm the played songs mainly from this album.
