The whole 2013 edition of Roadburn was characterized by a certain smoothness; Everything was well organized and streamlined. For example, instead of having to gulp your beer down before going outside, you could now take your beer outside. The street was roofed in so we could all smoke and drink outside like pros. This nice practical touch gave the festival a real ‘festival’ feeling!
After the EP Tundra (2008) and Full-Length EOS (2010), Estonian duo Talbot delivers another epic and heavy-as-fuck piece of work with Scaled. Released in april 2013, the band takes you to their deep and dark world of heavy riffs.
IRN is a fresh (or rather rotten) doom/ sludge band hailing from Toronto, Canada. This thing starts with a spectacular 18-minute opening track followed by 2 evil riff monsters. An utterly heavy slab of dark, nihilistic sludge mixed with slow mesmerizing doom. Filthy, raw and solid. For fans of Warhorse, Sourvein, Indian, Serpentine Path...
When I hear about the German Psychedelic Rock scene, there are a lot of names that usually come to my mind: Colour Haze, My Sleeping Karma, Electric Moon, among many others. And Samsara Blues Experiment (SBE) has everything in its favor to join the club of the ascending kraut psychedelia. This album collects some of their best material from their previous LPs released in 2010 and 2011.
