Hiazm - The American Dream (2012)

The new record of Hiazm tells the story of Ruby Ridge incident. The demo contains 7 pieces of really raw and rough groovy sludge and the alogical and unexpected final track. Those who enjoy quality lyrics in English will be pleased with the concept story, regardless of their attitude towards the tragedy it is based upon.

The Howling Void - The Pearl of Our Collection

I'll be fucking right if I call this band the pearl of our collection. It's almost unbelieavable that this can be a one man act from Texas, and by far it's one of my favourite preferences in the genre. Beatiful is every tinest bit of this release. Great, great, fucking awesome funeral doom album with crushingly sad autumnal atmosphere released by the Russian label Solitude Productions. Highly recommended.

Uncertainty Principle - Pounded by the Abrasive

Hell, it's been a long while since the last post, but here we are again with works by Uncertainty Principle. Its founder and the only participant S.P.White creates slow, abrasive music which one can perceive with difficulty. There are, of course, exceptions. His music is a mixture of funeral doom (slow'n'steady tempo, majestic atmosphere), harsh noise (jaggedly-abrasive sound in general) and ambient (fuck, just pieces of ambient). He's got quite a large discography including rather diverse releases. Besides, Mr. White is one of the participants of Null Collective.

Depressive Stupor - Janiform Dead

Depressive Stupor is a side-project of Dead from Ankhagram. The music performed by DS is a mix of  drone, ambient and stoner doom. And this is a mosaic, not a slush.

Mistress of the Dead - Reverberated sounds of Inhumation

Vlad Cristea Vales is a productive Czech musician (having started in 2004, he has released 11 demos, 5 albums, 2 splits, and a compilation album) who specializes in impenetrating, strongly reverberated and monotonic soundtrack to obsequies - in genuine funeral doom. His discography is a collection of nineteen similar-looking pieces of incurable sorrow - it is really difficult to distinguish his releases one from the other. But notwithstanding this, all of them deserve a bit of your close attention.

Interview with Stephene Hoffman, man from Swamp

Steven Hoffman lives in Indiana. He creates and records rocky, sometimes ragged, sometimes viscous sludge doom, with a lot of inclusions of hardcore and stains of stoner rock. In the year of the white rabbit he released his first disk - a three song EP, which he vigorously promote in every possible social network - on,, Myspace. It's free to download, of course. The artwork is created by himself. He plays the bass, with his guitar he creates tenacious riffs, savouring of oriental spirit, lead passages and other sounds without which no one decent sludge release can do.  Very unexpectedly, taking into account his constitution, he vigorously roars into his mike something about sludge. We had an oppotunity to ask him a couple of questions, concerning his music, his views on some issues. Here are his answers to our questions.

Ankhagram - Creating a Funeral Doom Masterpiece

Ankhagram is a project of the cheerful Russian guy called Dead. This chap really believes that only doom metal can fully convey the fatality and hollowness of a human life and let us feel the cold and void surrounding us. And he will make you believe it, at least while you are listening to his music.

Cosmic Ambient of Uden

Uden - Uden

To write a review on an ambient project is something like to describe the smell of, say, a rose. At least for me. It's pretty easy to find some adjective describing it, but to analyze it and make your readers get to know what they should expect from this album - well it would be much better if you just visit the Bandcamp page of this project and listen to it yourself.

And yes - in this case this adjective is "cosmic".

Methuselah - Do You Ever Sleep in the Abyss?

Methuselah - The Sleeper in the Abyss

Ostiarii Wakim:
Weird music. It can put bodily and unexplainable fear into your heart, like works by H.F.Lovecraft do. You won't even understand which of the host of ponderous phrases frightened you most. That's the music of the eternal fall into a fathomless well with no walls at all, and the surrounding darkness is full of Soggoths. Music that you hear in your nightmares, but awakening is much more frightening. Weird music.

This act is probably the very first ambient\doom work in my life which I can call eclectic. Well, it is eclectic after all, I think. The album starts with mild and soft ambient intro that shrouds you and to which some kind of oriental voices are later on added (actually I don't know for sure what these weird sounds are, so let them just be voices, huh). Minimalistic passages, thin drums and sounds of some kind of string ensembles reminding of neo-classic pieces, whisperings, growlings, other kinds of bla-bla-bla and a pinch of pianoes. Dark, gloomy, unusual, eclectic and, yes, a bit oriental - that, probably, would be the words to describe this album.

Interview with Stigmatheist, man from Ego Depths

This time we were talking with Stigmatheist, an adherent of meditative depressing doom. His music made us add to the conversation a pinch of theatrics. We hope this pinch is not too large.

Urban Junior - Warm, Southern, Weaten Music, Drenched in Crimson Light of Setting Sun, Soaked in Pinewood Smoke, Music Exuding Southern Rythms of Blood Red... Stop Woffling! Let's Ah Ah Ah Ah and Dance!

Oh, yes. This scrawny Swiss in a baseball cap and with a guitar decided that he can play oldschool boogi\rock'n'roll even in the beginning of the 21st century (even if one doesn't have a fucking long beard, a showy Stetson and cool sunglasses) - and we madly like the way he implements his ideas.

Believe In Nothing - Blackened Drone Music with Female Redolence

Believe In Nothing - The 28th Day

Sandra Emmerich's one-woman-project, performing slow, droning, monotonous music significantly influenced by the early Satyricon. But it's better to say deeply soaked in Satyricon's atmosphere - the spirit of Dark Medieval Times imbues the whole record. Minimum of lofty synths - they open and close the drop-curtain of the album and their role is limited by this - we won't meet them during the listening any more. The main characters are Sandra and her guitar, that fills this short and undeniably tragic play with meditative and at the same time rough riffs. The secondary characters are the drums, measured and thin, and angelic voice that bemoans the wings lost for a dream that turned to be a fake. Everithing is performed and recorded so negligently that it just adds some charm to the music and does not spoil the impression. This work definitely deserves to be listened to.

Monument of Urns - The great unknown one

There is very few information about this reticent project in the web. But we know something for certain. We know that this music is like a stodgy larva slowly weightin' you down, and below, and infra then beneath. We know that the voice sounds like a wail muffled by the thickness of the prejudice and the common sense which tied by the environment; it's like a wail breaking away anything and anyone. That's all we know. More truly  - almost all.

New split of Ego Depths

Well, on the 30th of December of 2011 the third split album of Ego Depths one man band was released. This time the space of the CD is shared with "Who Dies in Siberian Slush" - the funeral doom band from Moscow. Four heavy, ragged pieces of emotions, four fragments of fading life which will definitely squelch you.

This album is available for free downloading in 256 Kb/s on the official website of the label.

Shine, My Boregarden - Who dies in Moscow sewage

From the Cold Capital of Russia - Tyumen -  located in the heart of the snow-bound Siberian wasteland mr.Cacophonyx brings the Siberian funeral doom; oh, we mean that it's not exactly funeral and not exactly doom.

Its sluggish, rugged and tangibly cold sounds could have been born only in a frozen tyumenian soul warmed by joy juice. Certainly Darth is a misanthrope. But who if not a misanthrope can show us our true face? Face of the overdeveloped monkey.

Ego Depths – Self-cognition through the discomfort and suffering

Ego Depths is a Ukrainian/Canadian project which specializes in meditative, slow and extramundane funeral doom metal. His discography includes a demo, a full-length album and a couple of splits.

Misanthrofeel - Calmly, leisurely

«Misanthrofeel is a non-professional composer from Russia. He works in progressive metal/rock, doom metal, acoustic, ambient genres…» blablabla

Don’t believe official pages, they tell you lies! Misanthrofeel creates cold and desperate landscapes of grief and sorrow, his music is mechanical and  punctual, but it is just  what makes you feel. Feel that you are alive as distinguished from the creations of this dispassionate composer.

Swamp (USA) - Fathomless moor of Architoa

Swamp is Stephen Hoffman's one-man band. Based in Indiana, US.
This guy plays leisured and viscous kind of sludge/doom and you can find a good lot of information about the project if you just follow the links contained under the "Moarrrgh!!1" button.

P.S. Stephen kindly agreed to give us an interview which is going to be published soon, so keep checking us out.

Interview with Misanthrofeel.

We could not but talk to the modest foe of smoking and just positive-proved man.

Interview with Darth K.I.A. Cacophonyx, man from Shine, My Boregarden

Well, it’s obvious that The Mushroom Brotherhood was created as a fan-club in the first place. But what’s a fan-club without feedback? That’s why we dared contact one of the worship monuments of The Brotherhood – Darth K.I.A. Cacophonyx. The hive mind of our mycelium laid down the following questions to its cult hero and Darth’s individual mind generated matching answers.

Hiazm - Loud Southern slush

And here we come with heavy and atmospheric sludge from the south of Russia by Hiazm. Its dirty underground sound reminds Loinen, Eyehategod etc. But. Though the sound production may seem to  be similar to some of these bands, the music itself is original and non-cliched.
