Conjuring the sinister spirits of yesteryear, Moenen of Xezbeth rises to deliver its first full incantation of mid-paced black metal, “Ancient Spells of Darkness…,” with its seven arcane invocations primed to unleash their plague on all who bear witness. Captured with the same approach and under the same austere conditions as its preceding demo and EP, “Ancient Spells of Darkness…” thus realizes the same unearthly effect, yet it is even more sinister and oppressive. These foreboding hymns serve as a conduit for the return of the original black flame, which was first sparked by Moenen of Xezbeth’s revered forbearers, has since nurtured itself in the underworld, and is now emboldened to return in its dark glory.

The primal sounds on Fumaça Preta are gritty, freaky, steamy, and a hell of a lot of fun... fueled by acid-drenched effects, with Caribbean and Brazilian rhythms sifted through a cheesecloth of loopy Bahian grooves and Zappa-esque chamber music... The tunes on this record demand participation: if you can't dance to it, you're already dead.

Träd, Gräs & Stenar ("Trees, Grass and Stones") is a Swedish rock band formed in 1969, from previous incarnations Pärson Sound, International Harvester and Harvester. The group was one of the front acts of the Swedish progg scene, although noticeably less political than their contemporary counterparts. Their sound has been described as raw, psych rock jam, by the writer David Pescovitz, who also notes the band would invite their audiences to improvise and collaborate.

After a few albums of 'more Sabbath-y than Sabbath' Stoner Doom in the mid-to-late nineties, 2001 saw Cathedral return to their down-tuned bowel rattling best, trudging out a darker, monolithic hour of soul searching Doom that most of their hardened fans had hoped for. Gone were the comedic cries of "Huggy Bear - Oh Yeah!", instead replaced here with screams of anguish and shadowy tales aplenty. Opener "Cathedral Flames" greets the listener with a slow pounding instrumental dirge, segueing nicely into the best track on the album "Melancholic Emperor", where Lee Dorrian's "Oooh!!" sees the main riff crash from your speakers with all the subtlety of a herd of rampaging Elephants. There is of course still huge amounts of Sabbath-influenced riffery, but painted with a much darker, almost monochromatic palette when compared to the likes of "Carnival Bizarre." The rest of the album follows suit in various different guises and tempos, with only "Astral Queen" slowing the pace completely with its "Planet Caravan"-like smoked out acoustic gentleness. Touches of a beefed up St. Vitus can be heard washing through the riffs of "Whores of Oblivion" which, although in my opinion it's one of the weakest tracks on the album, still sounds pretty decent nestled midway into the album. In my eyes at least, this was Cathedral's best album since 'The Ethereal Mirror'. Although the two albums that followed this one kept the darker slant in the music, they didn't quite manage to replicate the quality of the songs that make up this album. "Endtyme" is a largely unheralded gem in Cathedral's back catalogue, and it's certainly worth your time investigating.

He didn't care much for the British Invasion but he identified with soul singers such as James Brown and Otis Redding whom he saw, among other great R&B acts, performing at Washington DC's famous Howard Theatre.

When his punk band, the Pop Rivets, broke up in 1980, Billy Childish formed a new group with Mickey Hampshire, a Pop Rivets roadie who had been performing in a group called Mickey and the Milkshakes. The two began writing songs together and released their first LP, Talkin' About, in 1981. With Childish on guitar and vocals, Hampshire on guitar and vocals, Bruce Brand on drums, and Russ Wilkins (later replaced by John Agnew) on bass, the Milkshakes sound was a primitive blend of British beat groups, like the early Kinks at their toughest, and hard-rocking American guitar instrumentalists, like Link Wray. This sound came to be known as the "Medway sound" and Childish has been playing a variation on it throughout his whole career. The Milkshakes were a very prolific group, recording nine records in their six years together. Childish and Hampshire split the lead vocal duties and the band was very much a blend of Childish's primitive songwriting and Hampshire's more melodic leanings. The group also masterminded and backed a Medway girl group, the Delmonas. The Milkshakes broke up in 1984 and Childish, Brand, and Agnew went on to form Thee Mighty Caesars where Childish's raw punk-blues could roam untainted by any semblance of professionalism.

"The Rockats burst onto the music scene in the late 70’s like a breath of fresh air. Rockabilly music had laid dormant since the 1950’s, until a group of young brash Brits brought back a revitalized and re energized version to the US. The Rockats were no mere revival act or retread, they were putting a modern spin on the classic rockabilly sound, much like Stevie Ray Vaughan or the Fabulous Thunderbirds were putting their modern spin on the blues. No one had seen a standup bass in 1978 being played the way Smutty Smiff played it! Spinning it and dancing with it! With Dibbs Preston’s great rockin’ vocals, Barry Ryan and Danny Harvey twin rockabilly guitar attack, The Rockats were poised to Make That Move into the US. I remember seeing The Rockats first show in New York. I couldn't believe there were other people like me. The spirit of the Rockats captivated the audience that night and left a great impression on me. I guess we were swept away to our different paths in life and never really got to know each other well until later. Here are twelve great new tracks from the original Rockats. Still with the same spirit and savvy as they had back in 1981! Rock on, Kats, Rock on!" Brian Setzer

The Polecats are a rockabilly band formed at the end of the 1970s.The band formed in 1977 in north London. The original line-up was Tim Worman (a.k.a. Tim Polecat, vocalist), Martin "Boz" Boorer, (guitarist and vocalist), Phil Bloomberg, (bassist), and Chris Hawkes (drummer), who originally played under the name "Cult Heroes." Finding difficulty persuading promoters to book them on the rockabilly circuit with a name sounding "too punk", they adopted Hawkes' suggested band name The Polecats. Hawkes was later replaced by Neil Rooney; who was subsequently replaced by John Buck. The Polecats played rockabilly with a "punk sense of anarchy and helped revive the genre for a new generation in the early '80s".

Messer Chups is an experimental band from St. Petersburg, Russia. The band was founded by Oleg Gitarkin who had previously performed with Oleg Kostrow under the name of Messer für Frau Müller. Messer Chups is often considered a "spin-off" band of Messer für Frau Müller. The band was originally a duo of Gitarkin on bass guitar and Annette Schneider who played the synths. During 2000–2002 Messer Chups consisted of Gitarkin and Igor Vdovin on synth. In 2003, the producer of Messer Chups and head of their home label Solnze Records, Oleg Tarasov, invited the world famous theremin player Lydia Kavina to join them. Together they have released several albums and reworked their previous releases. In 2005, Messer Chups became a duo consisting of Gitarkin and ZombieGirl on bass. In 2007, they became a trio, with drummer Denis "Kashey" Kuptzov from the famous band Leningrad. In 2008, they changed their drummer to Alexander Belkok, and Alexander Skvortzov became their vocalist. Messer Chups' music often features a foundation of surf drums on which they build collages of samples from odd sources, like jazz, east European animation soundtracks, and American B-pictures. On top of that they lay guitar solos and theremin.

Raymond Charles "Ray" Campi (born April 20, 1934), is an American rock and roll musician sometimes called "The King of Rockabilly". He first recorded in the mid-1950s. Campi's trademark is his white double bass, which he often jumps on top of and "rides" while playing.He was born in New York City, and lived in Yonkers, New York during his earliest years. After his family moved to Austin, Texas in 1944, Campi began a lifetime of performing and recording music in numerous American genres, including folk, country, and rock and roll as well as rockabilly. Early on he recorded on Domino Records.[1] In the 1950s Ray Campi recorded for several labels, including Dot Records, and recorded the first tribute record to the 1959 Buddy Holly plane crash, 'The Ballad of Donna and Peggy Sue', backed by the Big Bopper's band. He also worked with a diverse range of singers, including Mae West (who recorded his song "Caterpillar") and Ian Whitcomb. He rarely concentrated on his musical career exclusively, working a wide variety of jobs, notably twenty-five years, from 1967, spent as a junior high school teacher in Van Nuys, California. He has fiercely criticized the mainstream music industry, in particular its connections with drug culture. His musical career took off in the early 1970s when he was rediscovered by Ronnie Weiser, the owner of Rollin' Rock Records. Campi began touring Great Britain and Europe and has regularly played festivals there ever since. He has also recorded with German, Finnish, British and Dutch rockabilly bands over the past two decades, and has produced his own albums with artists such as Rosie Flores, Bobby 'Fats' Mizell and Ian Whitcomb. Ray has performed on several solo albums by Kevin Fennell, his Lead Guitarist from 1977 to 2015. Campi continues to perform and record with his longtime musical associate Rip Masters.

Tongue twisting, teeth shattering, seizure enduncing psych punk, noise pop stabs all the way from Porto, Portugal - Sunflowers are a heat wave in the cold, static times we live in. With the perfect amounts of confused riffs, slurred lines and feedback insanity, the Portuguese outfit has managed to cleanse the mind and body of all of those who crossed paths with them. In over 150 shows, they’ve shared the stage with Oh Sees, Moon Duo, Black Lips, Boogarins, La Femme, The Blind Shake, Tomorrow’s Tulips... and have played festivals such as Festival Indigènes (FR), Endless Daze Fest (SA), Inner City Psych Fest (SA), Barreiro Rocks (PT), Festival Paredes de Coura (PT) and Reverence Portugal (PT), among many more. Their debut album “The Intergalactic Guide to Find the Red Cowboy” was first released in 2016 through the independent Portuguese label O Cão da Garagem and had a second pressing in 2017, through the french label Only Lovers Records. A European tour was booked for November and December of 2017 to present it, passing through Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Netherlands and more, surprising everyone with the insanity and intensity of their live shows. In 2018, the band returns with “Castle Spell”, their sophomore LP baring their characteristic meltdown of Larsen-effect-drenched riffs and acid bleached vocals into your stereo. One can say the band is young and restless, but they bring a well thought mutated slab of paranoia filled heavy shredders, while the hazed sunset fades away in the rearview mirror, darkening the desert and filling the air with some energized psych punk auras. “Castle Spell” is a 10- story palace, each of them with its own atmosphere, its gloomy and murderous tenants, all narrated by Carol’s docile voice and Carlos’s intrusive howls.

The Dungeons Are Calling is an EP by the American heavy metal band Savatage, released in 1984 on Combat Records. Though the EP was not released until 1984, most of the songs featured on it and the debut album, Sirens, had been in the band set list since 1979, and are part of the Live in Clearwater and City Beneath the Surface EPs. The Dungeons Are Calling is a loosely based concept album and the title track, contrary to popular belief, is not about Hell or torture, but about the horrors of drug use. The song used many metaphors, which have been sometimes misunderstood
