Desertfest organisers have released details of the first seven acts who will be descending upon London next May to make Desertfest’s 8th year the biggest event to date.
Out now via Southern Lord, Jesus Piece’s Only Self is sure to be one of the year’s biggest hardcore albums; it more than lives up to expectations, and throws in a few (largely successful) curve-balls.
If you’ve had even a passing interest in one of the most important heavy bands of the last 30 years, or just want to hear Neurosis playing very, very fast, go and check out Pain Of Mind.
Mike Scheidt has turned his recent and terrifying experiences into an incredible work of heartfelt music. Our Raw Heart is an accomplished album from YOB, sure to keep resonating with listeners for years to come.
And All Will Be Desolation, the second full-length release by Allfather, who hail from Kent in the UK, is a rallying cry and a targeted piece of aggression.
Uniform and The Body’s Sacred Bones collaboration, Mental Wounds Not Healing, includes stomping post-punk riffs, harsh noise walls, static-drenched doom crawls, damage rave rhythms, and a hell of a lot of hurt.
From the packed-out pub rooms to the rafters of the Koko and the Roundhouse, rumbling basslines shook the earth, and spliff-based riffs rang out loud and proud. This is Desertfest!
How many bands come to mind who would call “painful electrocution” a non-issue when describing their favorite show of a tour? Telepathy are one, and guitarist Rich Powley discusses their relentless touring cycle, and the maelstrom of latest record Tempest.

Austin, Texas-based psychedelic doom metal band Destroyer of Light have risen in 2018 with the release of a brand new EP called Hopeless.
Courtesy of Black Bow Records,Totems is a collaborative split between two of the UK’s hottest doom stalwarts – Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard and Slomatics – and it is pure listening pleasure for riff-maniacs everywhere.
