A while ago I made a list of noiserock bands with only two members so obviously I needed a list for one man bands too. Because I only knew a couple one man bands (with my all time favourite Reptoid) I asked for help on some forums and stuff and got a lot of answers. So , embrace yourselves for a lot of angry loud noises from bands with only one human.

“8 tentacles 1 man band / Geek-core
Born in a fish tank in Seoul, Octopoulpe is a half-naked creature playing tentacular music, from Math-rock to punk-hardcore.

Heavy Dump #21

First month of 2020 is almost over and I have only released one dump. So this one is urgent and important that is why it is a heavy one. Check out all this stuff on Heavy Dump #21.


The German Sludge/noise band Gorgonoisid released their new album “IV” on January 13, 2020. For fans of cement mixers on acid.



Swedish heavy doom/sludge band Kråkslott released their selftitled on January 17. Everyone with a long beard will like this.



Angry noisepunk by French Band Vatours. New album out January 10. Angry music for angry people. And nice people too. And others. It’s music you know, it’s for everyone.


Deaf Club

Agressive hardcore punk on the new Deaf Club “Contemporary Sickness”. Need to stay awake? Need adrenaline but forgot your drugs at home, listen to some Deaf Club.


Cybernetic Witch Cult

Fuzz, Doom and psych from UK trio Cybernetic Witch Cult. Their latest album “Absurdum ad Nauseam” was released in December last year.


Blood Built Empire

Their new album “Fractured” is loud, in your face and filled with awesome riffs.


Asbestos Worker

“Dead EndTown” is dirty and gritty, like a bag of cement playing the guitar. Not for the faint of heart.


Insekt Ark

Second single from their upcoming album “The Vanishing” wich will be out 28 February. Slow, brooding heaviness best served in complete darkness.



Belgian trio Heisa returns with new music from their upcoming album “Joni” wich will be released April 24. Check out the track “Let Go”. Heisa always delivers incredibly cool music and mostly a bit weird too wich is nice, yes.


Goblin Smoker

“A Throne in Haze, a World Ablaze” is the upcoming album by doom/stoner band Goblin Smoker. Thus second part of the “Toad King” Trilogy will be released February 7. Just like the name this is an really good band.
