To say the world is in a pretty sorry state right now certainly wouldn't be a hyperbolic or melodramatic statement. From rampant systematic xenophobia and murder all the way to an ongoing global pandemic that mirrors a plot device from a subpar thriller, 2020 has essentially played host to the worst of the human condition - and the tunnel ahead is still without promising light.

With that in mind, it's no surprise u...

Candlemass are one of the giants of Doom Metal. On their 12th album, The Door to Doom in 2019, and having just followed this up with a fresh EP, The Pendulum, they show no signs of stopping. This interview was conducted with Leif Edling via email.

Noizze: "The Pendulum is entirely made up of extra tracks from the recording sessions for the previous album The Door To Doom. These must have been extremely productive sessions to have...

When thinking about Doom Metal, it’s highly unlikely that your mind goes straight towards Osaka, Japan. But since forming in 2012 two guys performing under the name BlackLab have been on a mission to change that.

Named after Black Sabbath and Stereolab and crafting songs best listened to in a darkened room BlackLab are back with the cheerily titled Abyss. And yes, in case you were wondering, it is every bit as dark, gloomy and downright hellish as...

Back in 2018, Katatonia - the Swedish masters of melancholy - announced that they would be entering a hiatus for a number of reasons, one including a serious back injury suffered by their newest recruit Roger Öjersson. The future of the band seemed uncertain, but little over a year later they were already announcing an anniversary tour for their 2009 album Night Is the New Day. Only a year later, they have now presented another gift of onyx-like...

Beggar are a band for the ever-darkening modern times. Originally forming in the suburbs of Bristol prior to relocating to the mire that is inner London, the group weaponise elements of doom, sludge, extreme metal and surprising suaveness that parallels the traumatising nihility that's rampant within our national culture.

With their brilliant debut long play Compelled To Repeat now out via APF Records, the band have quickly bec...

Faith in the industry, faith in society and faith in an ever-loving benevolent God. These are the three vile demons you must slay in order to truly appreciate the work of Bristolian doomgazers Sugar Horse.

Despite being a fairly new proposition to many, Sugar Horse have already made a significant impact due to their sheer dynamism, offensive disregard for genre conformity and ability to manifest all annihilating walls of noise that are both crushi...

Emerging from the same pool that birthed artists as Phoxjaw, The St Pierre Snake Invasion, and even Idles, the Bristolian quartet Sugar Horse have already displayed the same fervent creativity and aptitude that made their peers so illusive. With this fact in consideration, it’s hardly a surprise the act have already made a great impact within the scenes and circles they run in, especially after violently introducing themselves last year with thei...

It’s easy to assume that every artist has an expiry date attached to them, and there comes a point where any new material they release simply doesn’t live up to the calibre of their earlier work. However, there are some bands that never seem to slow down and even decades into their career will still release material that is very highly praised by fans and critics alike. Nowhere is this idea of a band not slowing down more apparent (and ironic) th...
