Leaf Hound - Sad Road To The Sea

Leaf Hound were one of the dozens of heavy rock bands that evolved during the late-'60s British blues-rock boom. Rhythm guitarist Derek Brooks and his brother, Stuart Brooks, had been in the Black Cat Bones, a South London-based band that at one time featured Free's Paul Kossoff. Vocalist Peter French and his cousin, lead guitarist Mick Halls, had been in several London groups: Switch, Erotic Eel, Joe Poe, and the Brunning Sunflower Blues Band (featuring Bob Brunning).
In the latter half of 1970, after the Black Cat Bones' lead guitarist Rod Price quit (he was heading off to join Foghat), the Brooks brothers formed a new group with Halls and French, drafting in newcomer Keith George Young on drums. This new group -- christened Leaf Hound, a name found in an anthology of stories by horror writer Herbert Van Thal -- recorded "Barbed Wire Sandwich" for Decca's Nova subsidiary in 1969, and soon were playing shows in England, reportedly blowing headliners UFO off-stage.

The Devils Blood - Voodoo Dust

The Devil's Blood was a Dutch occult rock band from Eindhoven, formed in 2006. Their style is rock-and-roll-flavoured hard rock in the vein of Black Widow, Coven, Black Sabbath, and a plethora of 1970s underground progressive rock. The group's name is taken from "Devil's Blood" by the Swedish black-metal band Watain.

Träd, Gräs och Stenar - Last Time

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.

Merlin - Iron Borne (Live)

At the beginning of the year, right after The Wizard was released, we decided to switch to a 6 piece lineup and loved the sound so much that we wanted to record and release our first show together no matter how intensely unpredictable or potentially sloppy it was gonna be on stage. We wanted to do it no matter what would befall upon us. Well it ended up being a pretty cool night and without further ado...We are proud to announce our newest release, Dank Souls and Dark Weed: A Live Experience

Lucid Sins - The Witcher

Every now and then a band comes along and gives you something new. Rarely is that something melodic, as there are limited permutations in rock and at some point everything is derivative. LUCID SINS manage that three card trick with a blend of pastoral, psychedelic freshness. It’s a mix of Topanga Canyon legends, Crosby, Stills and Nash, occult rock, and antique doom not a million miles removed from the first Witchcraft record. This is a heady mix of melody and nuance that will appeal to any listener.
The danger of using melody in doom is that you risk alienating the metal listeners. The key to retaining your credibility is, of course, lyrical content. Ghost’s overt melodies where offset by their dedication to the dark side, which made them successful. Lucid Sins, likewise, make good on content. In short, they know their stuff.

Demon Head - The Resistance

Denmark’s most authentic proto-metal project took shelter from the winter on 2016 and shook off the frost with their massive second full-length ‘Thunder on the Fields’. It was somewhat overlooked for it’s retro sound and stripped-down hard psych style. The allure of Demon Head is in their dark proto-metal sound that rolls out like a cleaned up Pentagram tape from the 70’s. The immediate draw for me towards Demon Head was the lightly baked vocals of M. Ferreira Larsen that have a perfect affectation for their style, his cadence is halfway between briefly NWOBHM/prog band Demon‘s Dave Hill and a touch of 90’s Glenn Danzig minus the hysterics. His tone brings some horror and darkness that few retro-referential groups manage and elevates the personality of their guitar driven rock music.

Satan's Satyrs - Germanium Bomb

Staggering out of Herndon, Virginia, like a six-legged razorback high on blood and gas fumes, Satan’s Satyrs ply the kind of doom-fuzz domination and full-tilt horror boogie that exists about a million miles outside the realm of giving a fuck. Teenage mastermind Clayton Burgess recorded and played every instrument on the band’s 2012 debut, Wild Beyond Belief!, while he was still in high school. Inspired by Blue Cheer, Electric Wizard and a slew of sleazy 60s/70s cult biker flicks like The Glory Stompers, Werewolves On Wheels and Satan’s Sadists, Burgess eventually found kindred spirits in guitarist Jarrett Nettnin and drummer Stephen Fairchild, who joined the SS fold in time to appear on last year’s Hammond-drenched brain-boiler Die Screaming.
