Moghul – selftitled

‘Moghul’ released their self-titled album on September the 1st, 2012. Even though this album only has 2 songs on it, each song is an absolute marathon.

‘Dead Empires’ starts out a bluesy heavy rock affair which turns nasty along the way. The change is slow as the guitars and drums get louder and more aggressive and the vocals turn from gravelly to abrasive.

‘Hidden Hand’ once again slowly wanders through different genres and styles, touching on psychedelic, desert, drone and stoner.

This album is probably best appreciated on vinyl while wearing flares but if thats not possible, it’ll still sound good.


earthmass – Lunar Dawn (Keep, Relic & Ritual)

‘Lunar Dawn’ is the name of the one track EP by ‘earthmass’.

I feel that some people would be put off by the fact this song runs in at just over 20 minutes. If this EP was split up into individual songs it might be more accessible by listeners but it would lose some of its effect.

At the end of the 20 minutes you’ve been exposed to this bands complete showcase, they touch of a few different genres and aren’t afraid to switch things up from soft to heavy and vice versa.

The Atlas Moth – An Ache For The Distance

‘An Ache For The Distance’ sounds to me like a sexual innuendo of some sort to me, this is only reinforced by the album art work.

Although these thoughts are quickly pushed out of my head listening to ‘Coffin Varnish’, the band chucks you straight in the deep-end. It is an insane opener track, heavy music and agonised vocals.

‘Holes in the Desert’ is the stand out song on the album, playing off the 2 vocalists (Stavros and David) against each other.

The band seems to be confining some elements and genres to each song. It seems chaotic at times but it definitely suits.

In a word – Peyote
