Lunar Sex - Lunar Sex

Look, something you usually don't see 'round here: an 80's band. An obscure little female-fronted band, they played pretty awesome fast-paced hard rock/heavy metal with some punkish overtones... And, well, they are called Lunar Sex, how cool is that??.

The Lamp of Thoth

Another post that should be tagged "Doom" many times...
I Love the Lamp demo <<< love it >>>
Oh yes I do, I do love the Lamp!! Traditional doom metal at its best, with the accent on traditional. Most trad.doom bands only incorporate "sabbathisms", but not the Lamp, oh no, they go further and add the 80's to the 70's, they are heavy on NWOBHM influences. Aaaand they are proud Englishmen.
Their demo (just like all their material) has a pretty raw but warm and enjoyable sound and what's more important, great compositions, interesting songs, riffs-riffs-riffs.

Portents, Omens & Doom <<< yer doom >>>
Their full-length effort brings no disappointment... The Lamp of Thoth keeps on delivering first class trad.doom.

Sing as You Slay <<< _dsfas__ >>>
Aaaand finally an EP with some bonus tracks.

Buy their stuff, most of them are avaible at doom distros. They have splits with all kinds of bands, EPs, 7"s...
