Widowland - Widowland (2011)

01. Firehouse 3:29
02. Kaleidoscope 6:38
03. Labyrinth 9:07
04. Volcano 5:46
05. Myth 5:33
06. Orthodox 5:01

Another excelent album for the new year. The whole album is awsome, combining the doom and stoner parts perfectly with some other heavy moments (Maiden´s spirit prowling around). It has a sort of swedish style as bands as Witchcraft, but they come from Russia! Really good discovery, don´t let it go!

Villains - Lifecode Of Decadence (2009)

02. Headless Excruciator
03. On the Prowl

Old School stuff! From thrash  metal to black or hardcore sonirities, following the path of the latests works of Darkthrone, Dishammer, etc. Every song sounds diferent, and this fact makes this album very easy to listen.  Good compositions, dirty production and bad attitude.

Magnific third album of these peruan doomers. Down-tempo sonorities but with a little touch of psychedelia and ethnic parts. It´s worth to point out too the excellent work of the guitars, specially in the solo parts. If you like Reino Ermitaño and similar bands, you ´ll enjoy this album.

*sorry, I cannot find videos for that record.

 An outstanding work of southern soul, with the gorgeous voice of Mavis Staples and the excellent work at the guitars of Ry Cooder (Captain Beefheart, Taj Mahal, Rolling Stones...). Political lyrics for an american roots music with tones of feeling, and this essential touch of southern sound. Don´t be afraid, open your mind, and enjoy this fantastic record.

Weird work of these norwegian musicians. Think about Virus, Umbra Nihil, Ephel Duath, and you´ll konw of what I´m talking about. In spite of the rare soundscapes, the album doesn´t make boring and can be heard very well. Give it a chance.

Let´s gonna try with something different. The eclectic guitarist Marc Ribot, in one of his uncountable works and collaborations, recorded this album with The Prosthetic Cubans. A really enjoyable record of jazz/rock full of latin rythms and a brilliant guitar work. I hope you like it, despite it is not the usual stuff that you can find here.

A classic inside the genere. Old school thrash, with the amazing guitar work of Tommy Baron and the quality of Marquis Marky at drums. A diferent way of play thrash, more experimental and progressive than most. A must have album!

Earth - Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light I (2011)

01. Old Black 08:49
02. Father Midnight 12:11
03. Descent to the Zenith 07:30
04. Hell’s Winter 11:32
05. Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light I 20:24

Yes!!! At last! One of the most anticipated albums of the year to me.  It seems that it follows the path of their past two albums, closer to "The Bees Made...", with his hipnotic slow-country soundscapes, and in this occasion I have to say that this record also seems to be more "accessible", wich does not mean that it is an easy-listening work, but easier digestion. I think that this work will accomplish the expectations. We will see... enjoy it!

Live show belonging to his recent tour in 2010. What can I say? Mr.Lanegan alone with an acoustic guitar, wich means that we can enjoy much yet his amazing voice. I could see him on this tour and I´ve to say that It was one of the best shows of the last year, and one of the best male voices that I ever heard live. A good choice to begin this new year.
