Join The Kvlt by Espi Kvlt

  • Hello, all! My name is Clayton, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to have my AOTY list published on Noob Heavy’s website! I am @cow_sweeney on Twitter and Sweeney Cow on most other social media sites. I apologize for the last-minute submission, but there were so many great late year releases that tickled my fancy that it necessitated a total last-minute overhaul. Fortunately, I was able to narrow it down to a top 15 with a few honorable mentions, so without any further ado…let’s begin.  15. Sigh – Shiki Sigh’s latest album leads me to draw more parallels to its most recent predecessor than [...]

Australian Heavypedia: Interview with Shatter Brain (Death/Thrash)

Shatter Brain just put out their debut LP Pitchfork Justice after having a split and demo to their name since their formation in 2017. This new album marks a rise for the band in the underground Australian metal scene with an overall well rounded product. It certainly helps that they host a couple of their states largest metal festivals. […]

Australian progmetal band IRONSTONE release debut EP Prophecy on May 29th

Let me give you a first impression of IRONSTONE, a young progressive metal band from Bendigo, Australia. Influenced by a range of genres, their music is heavy and percussive, with atmospheric layers and catchy choruses. It features the duality of clean and distorted vocals, djent driven riffs and breakdowns, what makes the result contemporary, melodic and hard hitting. […]

Album Review: Lucifungus – Derek 6 (Stoner Doom)

Lucifungus made a pretty strong impression in 2018 with their debut EP and a bunch of awesome show lineups in 2019. I’m glad to finally get some more from these guys. A very riff focused doom duo with a lot of gain, the way it ought to be. I wonder if they have the orange amps. Definitely got the Melvins vibe. […]

Album Review: Bull Elephant – “Self-Titled” 8/10 (Prog/Doom)

There isn’t much information as to the identity or location of Bull Elephant, as they choose to stay anonymous. Their debut record is a concept album, and despite having listened to this record several times I still couldn’t tell you what’s going on in my own words, but their Facebook bio sums it up pretty well, “Bull Elephant is the story of a slain African elephant that occultist Ahnenerbe SS attempted to bring back from the dead as a new form of battle asset. However, before re-animation could be completed it was intercepted by a mysterious witch-shaman, pursuing her own agenda and redirecting the undead creature’s purpose.” […]

Album Review: Novembers Doom – Nephilim Grove 8.3 (Doom Metal)

Nephilim Grove marks the American death doom giants, Novembers Doom’s 30th anniversary. Indeed, an infrequent feat (at least these days) to celebrate. Thirty years of firm, ferocious and fanciful activity, breaking necks as well as breaking hearts. Having been released on November 1st, the album insinuates, all so subtly, the symbolic capacity that it possesses: the quintessence of the band’s career or their next step on their path… or maybe simultaneously both? […]

Album Review: Wormhole – The Weakest Among Us (Deathcore)

Wormhole are a four piece technical death/Slam band coming out of Baltimore. Formed in 2015 the band have released one full length album with the second to be released early next year. At the heart of the band is the familial craftsmanship of the Kumar brothers, who along with the remaining members consist of live performers from bands such as Vulvodynia, Cognitive and Vale Of Pnath just to name a few. You can judge the full experience for yourself on the 14th of January via Lacerated Enemy Records. […]

Album Review: Enslaved – “Utgard” 6.7/10 (Black Metal)

Among all the albums I was looking forward to, Enslaved’s new release was one of the very top. I have profusely enjoyed their works, old and new alike, well mostly the older ones and maybe E excluded, but Utgard, in short, was far from satisfactory and way below my expectations bar. Don’t get me wrong. Utgard IS Enslaved, but it is not the Enslaved we, the old fans, want. They have kept an overall tinge of their true Norwegian Progressive Black Metal nature, but this new sound is so distorted and contorted that makes you question the band’s current trajectory. […]
