Album Review: The Necromancers – Where The Void Rose

Almost feels as if we’ve stumbled into some shady downtown bar mid-song, ‘Sunken Huntress’ wasting no time in reminding old friends and informing newcomers what THE NECROMANCERS is on about. There’s a bit of Magnus Pelander in new vocalist Basile Chevalier-Coundrain’s pipes, more complimentary than carbon copy, shades of the much-missed Michael Grant of CRESCENT SHIELD, and neither a bad thing. Musically, there’s a delightful blend of doom, SLOUGH FEG-styled rave-ups and even a sense of experimentation ala MASTODON’s post-Leviathan work on offer here. Certainly the most overtly Metal of the bunch, ‘The Needle’ marries early JUDAS PRIEST to a […]

Album Review: High Desert Queen – Secrets Of The Black Moon

From the get-go with ‘Heads Will Roll’, we are treated to some fine riffing, and a voice so smooth you wonder if the spicy lettuce has kicked in already. Feel that rolling and nodding your head? Yes, let it overtake you. That bass so crisp tickling your taste buds like a fine steak stone-cooked in the desert. This was just what I needed to hear tonight. What a pick me up! HIGH DESERT QUEEN is what you would get if THE SWORD and GOATWHORE had a baby, and I love this baby. I would adopt it and care for it […]
