Three long years have passed since Negative Reaction's "Tales of the Insomniac". Open your mind and this band will blow your brains out. Heavy-twisted Rock'n'Roll coming to da house. Downtuned Guitars seems to be done on minor notes that makes the sound non-standart for doom metal band. Ken's voice seems to be sweet as fuck and ugly as hell in the same time. This work thematically follows the previous opuses like split with Ramesses & "Endofyourerror" & "Orion Chronicles". One of my favourite bands that still doing good-quality Doom/Sludge nowadays. Let the Heaviness come !

Ostend Powers

Take me back to the sweet 90's when nu-metal or so called rapcore was so cool to listen to. Influenced Downset, Reveille, Slaves on Dope...to name a few. Stoned/groovy stuff from Belgium.
Band Description: Ostend Powers dominates through an onslaught of melodic vocals and groove rock guitars, reinforced by smash out beats. Our trademark sound is the melody that is laced throughout our music, taking listeners on an emotionally diverse rollercoaster ride. Even the hardest to impress are left gasping for breath by our live performances.

Steam "Wulfram" in etire here :

Le Scimmie (Italy) - 2011 - Dromomania

Really, really badass sound. Heavy Fuzzed out tunes are eating my body.
Imagine Karma2Burn on Steroids, add some good noiserock influences (like Big Business, Karp, Melvins) and you'll got the score. The songs on this album alternate from soft, pleasent melodies to uncompromising instrumental stoner grooves. The video & the song Dromomania just saved my day ) Gifted & Talanted Duo.


Triangle and Rhino "Fight the Brutal Pigs"

Strange but interesting noises.
New one free to dl on mighty

Sigmun (Indonesia) - 2011 - Land of the Living Dead

The second Stoned band after the Komunal that I've heard from Indonesia. 2 good Songs.

Descriptive paragraph/bio- Loud is an Indonesian rock band formed in December 2008. Consists of Haikal Azizi (vocal/guitar),Nurachman Andhika (guitar), Mirfak Prabowo (bass) and Risyad Tabattala (drums). Mainly influenced by the two founding fathers of heavy metal, the almighty Led Zeppelin and the god of heavy riffs, Black Sabbath. Loud mentions their music as freud blues rock, the word freud comes from the infamous neurologist, Sigmund Freud, whom they admired so much for his unconscious mind and the defense mechanism theory. They believe that the music they make are coming spontaneously from their unconscious mind. They changed their name to Sigmun after some issues about the similarity of their name with an english hard rock band, which was formed in 1989. the new name of course also came from the wicked neurologist himself. Referring to their influences, most of their songs are based on riffs covered with distortion and overflowing echoes. They describe their sound as "bringing a high gain amplifier and drums into a cave". the basslines are almost progressive but raw and primitive at the same time, the drumming moves fierce and violent on high tempo and in a sudden could turn calm into a drowning bluesy beats, while the vocals sounded like chants and moans, obviously affected by Plant and Ozzy . while they altogether religiously worshiped the Zeppelin and the Sabbath, each member also have their own musical background. mirfak have always been a fan of the grunge god Nirvana, the highspeed aggression of Motorhead and anything masculine, while nurrahman is a heavy metal geek who embrace the holy father Dio , Iron Maiden and the uncanny Uriah Heep. haikal adores the psychedelic echoes and progressions of Pink Floyd, the complexions of Robert Fripp and the zestful spirit of Jack Whites screech, risyad on the other hand has always been a disciple of Johny Rotten and the likes of raw punk rock, also highly toxicated by heavy local acts such as Seringai and Koil. their interest in sigmund freud concepts of unconscious mind and their love for the whimsical world of surrealism are evidently showing in their lyrics. enjoying the exploration of absurdism and juxtaposition in their writings, Dali, Magritte and Chirico might have influenced them as much as Page and Iommi did, paintings made out of hazy poetry and heavy echoed chords. they might say that the lyrics are mainly about human nature and social life, but then again who could ever guess what's behind their unconscious mind?

Making music from 1983. Sit & Relax.

Thought you might be interested in our attempt to resurrect Symphonic/Ambient/Exp/Psych/Prog Rock. Arigato for listening.

Partly symphonic prog rock, partly experimental, partly sci-fi, partly indie rock, partly space rock, partly electro-acoustic, (you get the picture) the Pygmies utilize the Brian Wilson “whatever works” aesthetic to get their musical vision(s) across.

Redburn's Heat......

For those of you who don't know right after the Robustfest, another massive psych/stoner/doom event took place in Moscow. The first Redburn festival fired up Russia on the 14-16 of October 2011.

Ethereal Riffian team was there to play a show, and to capture the bands playing there. Unfortunately we weren't able to make a video for each band, but the videos below will surely be enough to drag you into the Redburn's atmosphere.
As for the report - I guess music speaks louder than words:

Enjoy the music, support the scene!
