Cult of Dom Keller


Cult of Dom Keller have today announced their fifth album They Carried The Dead In A U.F.O. and shared the first single, ‘Last King of Hell’. Since 2007 the UK group have been leaving a trail of sonic fever dreams, dark psychedelia and experimentalism that beats with a heavy industrial heart. Talking about the track, …

Astral Festival (FKA Bristol Psych Fest), presented by Stolen Body Records, is back for its 6th year and BSM has made the journey south to check it out.

This year I have teamed up with Adam Harmsworth of Psychedelic Drone Rock to bring you twenty albums that have really inspired us in 2014.
