Doom Charts – Peroration List for February 2023

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!

Krautrock, Garage, Psych
Helsinki, Finland
Svart Records

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!

Until next time, support the undeground!

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!

Firebreather – Dwell in the Fog (Riding Easy Records 2022)

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!

We Broke The Weather is a fearless quintet from Somerville, Massachusetts. And I say fearless because I have listened to their brilliant debut album and many of you most likely have not. For fear of revealing too much, let’s just simply say that We Broke The Weather inhabits a universe where the sounds of The Mars Volta and Thank You Scientist live in happy unison, creating music that is out of this world.
