Doublestone - Devil's Owl / Djaevlens Egn' (2017)

"Raw, fuzzy guitars with a hint of sludgy muck stuck on output retro rockin’ riffs from the past evolving from small grooves into something more sinister and metallic. A male voice attempts to soar, with the hard work and imperfections making the vocals only more human, adding to the retro charm, especially when hinting at old evil.

The retro rawness has been nailed in fine fashion to take you right into the past with an album you’ll be convinced was made decades ago. “Devil’s Own” may be generally on the relaxed side, but there’s always the subtle threat of sin running in the undercurrents! – Cvlt Legion."

Demon Head - Thunder On The Fields (2017)

"On the 7th of April 2017, Demon Head’s new album THUNDER ON THE FIELDS will be released through The Sign Records. The songs were recorded by the Copenhagen band onto 16-track tape, in an isolated cabin where they locked themselves in for weeks in the winter of 2016.
Like its well-received predecessor Ride The Wilderness, the fruit of their communal work is powerfully crafted from start to finish. While the sound stays true to the sinister atmosphere of the debut album, the music has evolved to the next logical step: darker, more tight-knitted, and more diverse. Demon Head is not about trends or imitation. It is about the burning love for music. While in part an homage to the first heavy music, the songs have their own voice. The attitude is of originality and urgency
