KFAI - Roar of the Underground
Lair of the Minotaur - Carnage album cover

Lair of the Minotaur

Carnage, 2004

7.0 / 10

It will take roughly 20-30 seconds of Carnage for you to come to the conclusion that it's no surprise that Lair of the Minotaur's debut ended up on Southern Lord ...

Earth - Hex: Or Printing in the Infernal Method album cover


Hex: Or Printing in the Infernal Method, 2005

8.5 / 10

Opening with a sound not unlike some kind of spaghetti western death knell, Hex: Or Printing in the Infernal Method, the comeback album of noise mongers Earth, shocks the old ...

Sunn 0))) - Black One album cover

Sunn 0)))

Black One, 2005

8.0 / 10

This is the sound of being stalked by some unnamed horror that you are too afraid to turn around and see. The suspense builds and wanes and builds more to ...

Lair of the Minotaur - Cannibal Massacre album cover

Lair of the Minotaur

Cannibal Massacre, 2005

7.0 / 10

In 2004 we were treated to Carnage, the debut effort from this throwback thrash/metal outfit from Chicago. If you heard it, good. If not, well, let's just say that the ...

The Hidden Hand - Devoid of Color album cover

The Hidden Hand

Devoid of Color, 2005

7.0 / 10

Being the latest creative outfit of one Scott "Wino" Weinrich (formerly of The Obsessed, St. Vitus, Spirit Caravan, and more), people have a sound and musical quality that they have ...

Boris - Pink album cover


Pink, 2006

8.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Initially released late last year on Japanese label Diwphalanx, Pink now finds a worldwide release through Southern Lord. It also see's the band at their scuzzy rock best. Similar in ...

Sunn 0))) & Boris - Altar album cover

Sunn 0))) & Boris

Altar, 2006

8.5 / 10

Have you ever wondered what happens when two heavenly bodies get too close to each other? Usually in the scientific world, if the bodies are of equal size, density, mass, ...

Urgehal - Goatcraft Torment album cover


Goatcraft Torment, 2006

8.5 / 10

God bless Southern Lord Records. For many years the label has been the last bastion for all things sludgey and doomish. But as some of the latest releases to come ...

Orthodox - Gran Poder album cover


Gran Poder, 2006

6.0 / 10

Spanish doom? Southern Lord's Orthodox might want to rethink their name - honestly. Sure, the black robes are spooky and all, but it's a lot easier to wear them all ...

Striborg - Nefaria album cover


Nefaria, 2007

8.8 / 10

When all else is said and done, I like my metal like I like my coffee: black, bottomless, and smelling like the inside of a cave. It doesn't need to ...

The Hidden Hand - The Resurrection of Whiskey Foote album cover

The Hidden Hand

The Resurrection of Whiskey Foote, 2007

7.1 / 10

Let's be up front with this right off the bat. For all of Wino's - the guitarist and vocalist of the Hidden Hand - history in prominent bands like The ...

Earth - Hibernaculum album cover


Hibernaculum, 2007

8.8 / 10

It is not often that a band is willing to revisit prior recorded works in a new musical style. With Hibernaculum, the lauded Earth do just that. However, they do ...

Asbestosdeath - Dejection, Unclean album cover


Dejection, Unclean, 2007

7.0 / 10

If you are at all familiar with doom metal you should no doubt be aware of who Bay Area legends Sleep are, and how big an impact they had/still have ...

Glorior Belli - Manifesting the Raging Beast album cover

Glorior Belli

Manifesting the Raging Beast, 2007

5.9 / 10
200 Words Or Less

See: Obscurus Advocam Just kidding. But let’s face it. They are pretty interchangeable, no? Both bands are the vision of French musician Infestuus. Both bands are all just too melodic. ...

Weedeater - God Luck and Good Speed album cover


God Luck and Good Speed, 2007

6.0 / 10

When a band’s name makes reference to sinful pleasures, especially of the herbal nature, it’s a sign their sound will be akin to Black Sabbath; the emphasis on slow riffing ...

Om - Pilgrimage album cover


Pilgrimage, 2007

9.6 / 10

Sleep was great. High on Fire is pretty good. But Om consistently impresses me, and seems to gain momentum with every album. Om seems to be getting closer than ever ...

Wolves in the Throne Room - Two Hunters album cover

Wolves in the Throne Room

Two Hunters, 2007

8.7 / 10

The terms "stripped-down," "raw," and "black metal" are certainly no strangers to each other. Musically speaking, some of the best known bands and albums feature less-than-lackluster production and songwriting, a ...

Tangorodrim - Justus Ex Fide Vivit album cover


Justus Ex Fide Vivit, 2007

6.9 / 10

So what are we to think of this “pure, unholy black metal from Israel”? Well for starters, taking into consideration their country of origin doesn’t mean a whole lot. Whether ...
