The Doom Charts have spoken again and the Peroration List for February 2023 is up! Here is a list of 27 killer albums that barely didn’t make the February Charts by the skin of their teeth. Some personal favourites are the stellar session of An Evening With Knives, the new albums by Dead Blonde Stars and Grandma’s Ashes (if you miss the 90s, check them out today). I also wrote a small blurb for the new album by TEKSTI-TV 666, which I ‘m sure you wanna check out pronto, so here you go!
Explosive garage psych of the highest order with a punk rock attitude and an energy that grabs you by the throat. This could have been the brainchild of Uffo Lorenzen (Baby Woodrose) and Dave Wyndorf (Monster Magnet). All songs are one better than the other, and this is a very rare quality for any album really. Especially “TJ” is a masterpiece of how modern prog psych should sound. Have no doubt that this album will have you listen again and again, brilliant stuff!

I had not known Onsegen Ensemble prior to stumbling upon a post a few days ago by Mr Tom Hanno (Tom’s Reviews). And even though I do love a prog album as much as the next guy, I was by no means prepared for this astonishing gender-bending ride in the “Realms” of this album. Buckle up and have a read below to find out why!
Ripple Music hit the bull’s eye with the 4th instalment of its “Turned to Stone” series, bringing together two bands in one EP that sound as if they naturally belong together! Released on the 15th of April 2022, I have returned to this release multiple times since then, and not once have I been able to skip a song. Below are a few words that will hopefully get you to lend your ears to an album that is bound to make you love it!
Montreal band Sons of Arrakis unveils its brand new music video on Thursday, August 25th on YouTube and Facebook. This live session music video has been recorded and shot at Louis-Jean Cormier’s Studio Dandurand in Montreal on April 9th, 2022. The video highlights two singles, Omniscient Messiah and Lonesome Preacher, that appear on the formation’s debut album, Volume I, released on July 15th.
Following their excellent “Under a Blood Moon” on 2019, the Swedish trio returned in February 2022 with what is hands down their best work to date! Ambitiously raw and sonically majestic, “Dwell in the Fog” includes six anthemic and relentlessly melodic songs, with compelling grooves that waltz between the best moments of Mastodon and High on Fire. In all, the new album of the band literally breathes fire!
