Coma Wall, “Summer” official video

The band are now looking forward to returning to the stage in 2014 and are taking bookings. They’ve recently been confirmed for ‘Kin Hell Fest in May 2014, and have already announced gigs supporting Beehoover in Oxford in March, Dopethrone at the Underworld in June and The Rigger, Stoke with Space Witch, full dates below. They are also in the process of planning their first trip to France so if you would like to help with a date, please contact the band.

In COMA WALL news, the band recently enlisted doom-cinematic director Chris Purdie (of MERRIN) to produce an atmospheric video for Wood & Wire’s opening track ‘Summer.’

Director Chris Purdie had this to say about the video: “I just tried to capture the essence of both Wood & Wire’s sleeve imagery and the recorded sounds using a combination of stock footage mixed with bits I shot myself. The aim was to create a film that looked warm, but felt cold. Inviting, yet dangerous. In a way, it’s a continuation for the video I put together for Thine which was also comprised of stock. The process is more involving because when you begin putting a video like this together, you really don’t have any idea of where to start or what footage you can use. The process of finding the perfect combination of imagery for the sounds can take time, but you earn a greater understanding for both mediums through the process. I try to take this approach with all my film/music work, that’s just how my brain works, I guess.”

Undersmile, “Soil” official video

UNDERSMILE Premier New Video For The Track ‘Soil’ On The Sleeping Shaman

UNDERSMILE and director M. Arthur Wickson are very happy to present the music video for the song “Soil” taken from the band’s recent split EP ‘Wood & Wire’, released on beautiful transparent purple 12” vinyl by Shaman Recordings.

The video was filmed in the spring of 2013 at various locations, but primarily in and around Shaken Oak Farm where the band recorded their half of the split with acoustic alter-egos COMA WALL. Directed and edited by M. Arthur Wickson (who also produced the band’s previous music video for “Milk”), the “Soil” video attempts to capture more of the band’s live energy – apt for a song that has recently become a staple of their live set. Check out the premier over on The Sleeping Shaman.

The limited 12” is available to purchase direct from Shaman Recordings.

In other news, UNDERSMILE are also extremely pleased to announce that a limited edition CD of ‘Wood & Wire‘ is to be released in June/July on Future Noise Recordings, the label which also released last year’s ‘Narwhal‘. The CD will feature an exclusive bonus track in the form of COMA WALL’s take on UNDERSMILE’s “Big Wow,” as well as more artwork (the original concept sketches) from the talented Craig Bryant. Pre-orders will be available soon via Future Noise Recordings.

The CD tracklisting is:
1. Coma Wall – Summer
2. Coma Wall – You Are My Death
3. Coma Wall – Big Wow (bonus track)
4. Coma Wall – Cutter’s Choice
5. Undersmile – Soil
6. Undersmile – Killer Bob
7. Undersmile – Hives

UNDERSMILE and COMA WALL only have a handful of live dates left in 2013 as both bands will be taking a break, with UNDERSMILE soon to be recording a song for a 12” split with Nottingham’s titanic duo Bismuth and COMA WALL beginning to make plans for their next release. Their upcoming dates are as follows:

1st June – Gullivers in Manchester – Undersmile with Ishmael, Grimpen Mire and Bastard of the Skies *this may be Ishmael’s last ever gig
29th June – Summer Sizzler all-dayer @ the Windmill, Brixton – Undersmile & Coma Wall will be performing with a great line-up of other bands *Undersmile’s final gig of the year
21st July – The Racehorse, Northampton – Coma Wall with M E R R I N and Nick Hudson – a night of music and improvised video
9th – 11th August – SUPERNORMAL FESTIVAL @ Brazier’s Park, Oxford – Coma Wall.

‘Wood & Wire’ will be available on vinyl at all of the above dates, and the CD will hopefully be available from the Summer Sizzler onwards.

audiObelisk: Undersmile Premiere “Killer Bob” from Wood & Wire Split with Coma Wall

Posted in audiObelisk on February 19th, 2013 by JJ Koczan

Any band can put out a split with another band. Far rarer are those who can release a split with themselves. Due out for release shortly on a limited-to-500 pressing of purple vinyl, the full-length Wood and Wire split on Shaman Recordings unites British nautical doomers Undersmile with their unplugged alter ego, Coma Wall. As much as two bands featuring an identical lineup can be “united,” that is. Since they’re already the same people? Ah, never mind. You get the point.

The point is that by bringing together Coma Wall with Undersmile, the four-piece proves once again to be able to affect as much heaviness atmospherically as they do tonally. The ambience and emotional heft of Coma Wall‘s material flows naturally and engagingly into that of Undersmile — each band is given three tracks of a vinyl side — and the acoustic setting only provides more room for guitarists Taz Corona-Brown and Hel Sterne to branch out melodically and harmonically with their vocals. Cuts like “You are My Death” and opener “Summer” offer Cantrell/Staley-esque vocal interplay, and while the same could be said of Undersmile‘s previous album, Narwhal (review here), the context is different enough on Wood and Wire to highlight their performances.

And where Undersmile stretched suitably oceanic on Narwhal, the Wood and Wire split finds them somewhat more compressed, time-wise. Nonetheless, they make the three tracks feel as massive and tidal as one might expect. Recorded by Justin Greaves (Crippled Black Phoenix, Iron Monkey, etc.), “Soil,” “Killer Bob” and “Hives” are no less melodically-centered than did Coma Wall‘s contributions, but come on unremittingly heavy, pushed forward at a distinct drag by bassist Olly Corona-Brown and drummer Tom McKibbin. The Witney unit(s) recently premiered Coma Wall‘s “Summer” and today I have the pleasure of hosting the debut of “Killer Bob” from Undersmile‘s side of Wood and Wire. Please find it on the player below, and enjoy:

Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!

Undersmile and Coma Wall‘s Wood and Wire split is available now for pre-order through Shaman Recordings. For more info, hit up Coma Wall on Thee Facebooks or Undersmile on Thee Facebooks. Thanks to Lee Edwards and Shaman Recordings for allowing me to premiere “Killer Bob.”

Undersmile & Coma Wall Split Pre-Orders Available; Track Streaming Now

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 13th, 2013 by JJ Koczan

The first audio has surfaced from the new Wood and Wall split between UK nautical doomers Undersmile and their acoustic alter ego, Coma Wall. The Sleeping Shaman has a track stream at the link below where you can hear the debut audio from Coma Wall, who nestle right into Alice in Chains harmonies like they were so much warm water.

Pre-orders for the split are available now as well, and rumor has it there’s yet to come a glimpse at Undersmile‘s portion of the release on this very page sometime soon. Worth keeping an eye out:


COMA WALL / UNDERSMILE ‘Wood & Wire’ – Exclusive Stream, Artwork Revealed & Pre-Orders Now Available!

The anticipation is nearly over as today, The Sleeping Shaman, streams an exclusive track taken from the up and coming COMA WALL & UNDERSMILE 12” simply entitled ‘Wood & Wire’, the track ‘Summer’ is taken from the COMA WALL side and can be streamed AT THIS LOCATION.

Shaman Recordings also announced that Pre-Orders started today and besides the 12”, there’s the option to bundle in a T-Shirt with the COMA WALL / UNDERSMILE ‘Wood & Wire’ logo emblazoned on the front, more information and orders can be placed on the Shaman Recordings website HERE.

And finally, the artwork has also been revealed today which was lovingly crafted by up and coming illustrator Craig Bryant and you can check it out in all its technicolor glory below.

‘Wood & Wire’ brings together Oxford’s monolithic Undersmile and their acoustic alter-ego Coma Wall on one release.

Although this is Coma Wall’s debut release, they’ve already gained fans after playing sets at Desertfest 2012 and supporting Dylan Carlson (of Earth) on his first ever solo show. This recording sees the band laid bare – no amps, no fuzz boxes, just acoustic guitars, percussion and a banjo that showcases their own brand of Dark Americana and Doom-Folk in the spirit of the MTV Unplugged sessions.

On the other hand Undersmile, having been endorsed by the likes of Earth’s Dylan Carlson and Henry Rollins of Black Flag, are both engaging and crushing, blending numerous influences from Swans to Babes in Toyland to arrive at a genuinely fresh, cohesive, and brutal sound. Their debut album ‘Narwhal’, released last year by Future Noise Recordings, was met with huge praise from both fans and press alike. For these tracks, the band enlisted the help of Justin Greaves (Iron Monkey, Electric Wizard, Crippled Black Phoenix) to oversee the engineering and his contribution to the recording process helped to further display Undersmile’s diversity and musical growth, as well as their desire to capture a warmer, more ‘live’ sound.

Mastering for both recordings was once again handled by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Melvins) and the amazing artwork was handled by up and coming Illustrator Craig Bryant (

Undersmile and Their Secret Identity Sign to Shaman Recordings

Posted in Whathaveyou on November 6th, 2012 by JJ Koczan

Yeah, this one makes sense. Shaman Recordings, the label incarnation of much-respected UK heavy blog The Sleeping Shaman, have picked up nautical UK doomers Undersmile. The band hinted in their recent interview here that they had an acoustic side-project in the works, and it seems that Shaman Recordings will release that as well. Undersmile and their unplugged incarnation Coma Wall will issue a split 12″ vinyl this coming February.

Kudos to the band and right on to the label as well. Seems everybody wins, especially those who pick up the forthcoming and cleverly-titled Wood and Wire release:

UNDERSMILE & Their Acoustic Alter-Ego COMA WALL Sign To Shaman Recordings; Limited 12” Vinyl Set For Release During Feb 2013

Shaman Recordings are proud to announce their second release; Wood and Wire, a “self-split” between Oxford’s mighty drone/doom/sludge-bringers UNDERSMILE and their acoustic alter-ego COMA WALL. That’s one side of Americana-influenced, atmospheric doom-folk and one side of Undersmile’s characteristic, monolithic heaviness.

Following on from their debut EP A Sea of Dead Snakes, the Undertaker split (w/Caretaker) and their critically acclaimed debut album Narwhal, Wood and Wire marks the bands’ first foray onto vinyl and they have produced a record that reflects their diversity as a band and hints at what’s to come, for both incarnations.

Having played acoustic sets at the inaugural DesertFest and in support of Dylan Carlson (Earth) COMA WALL is the name UNDERSMILE have given to their acoustic project as a way to separate the two disparate but interlinked sides of their musical personality (highlighted by Coma Wall’s acoustic take on Undersmile’s “Cutter’s Choice”). Their contribution to this record is a taster for a future COMA WALL record.

Wood and Wire‘s acoustic side features production work from the band’s previous producers Jimmy “Evil” Hetherington (A Sea of Dead Snakes, Narwhal) and Umair Chaudhry (Undertaker split) while side B is produced by Justin Greaves (of Iron Monkey, Crippled Black Phoenix, Electric Wizard, Teeth of Lions Rule the Divine). Featuring three songs on either side, this is Undersmile as you’ve never heard them before.

The incredible artwork has been created by Craig Bryant (of Bast) whose work has previously been featured on posters for the likes of Dylan Carlson, Eagle Twin, Pombagira, Lattitudes and many more.

This slab o’wax is scheduled for release during February 2013 via Shaman Recordings and will be strictly limited to 300 copies on transparent purple vinyl with digital download card.

UK Special — Stream Black Magician’s Nature is the Devil’s Church in its Entirety

Posted in audiObelisk on September 25th, 2012 by JJ Koczan

Maybe it’s the cultural remnants of the Second Pandemic, but there’s just something even more miserable about classic British doom. The five-piece Black Magician released their debut album, Nature is the Devil’s Church, on Sept. 3 through Shaman Recordings (LP) and Burning World Records (CD), and throughout the record’s five tracks, the band capture the eerie stillness of a rolling English countryside, the ancient malevolence of pagan Christianity, and a healthy doses of Cathedral and Celtic Frost, comporting with long-forgotten demons and tried and true tonal weight.

Vocalist Liam Yates isn’t shy about his Lee Dorrian influence, but as the spooky vibes of 15-minute closer “Chattox” show, there’s more to Black Magician than retreading old(e) ground. The organ work of Matt Ford goes a long way in setting the atmosphere alongside Kyle Nesbitt‘s guitar, and from the first notes of the intro “The Foolish Fire,” there’s a devilish sensibility that the band maintains throughout the entire album, drummer Jay Plested announcing the slow march of “Full Plain I See, the Devil Knows How to Row” with lumbering kick and far-back echoing snare. Nesbitt is quick with a slow lead, and bassist Paul Robertson‘s rumble helps make “Four Thieves Vinegar” a highlight before the acoustic/organ interlude, “Ghost Worship” takes hold. “Bring out your dead,” indeed.

I’ll make no secret of the fact that Shaman Recordings has been streaming Nature is the Devil’s Church at its Bandcamp page. All the same, I wanted to take the chance to highlight the album’s potent dreariness and resonant plod, and lucky enough to be granted permission to do just that.

You’ll find the album streaming in full on the player below. Please enjoy:

Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!

Black Magician‘s debut, Nature is the Devil’s Church is available now on Shaman Recordings in a limited run of 300 red vinyl and Burning World Records on CD. More info is at the band’s Thee Facebooks page, the Shaman Recordings website or the Burning World Records webstore.

Black Magician Debut Due this Summer on Shaman Recordings

Posted in Whathaveyou on May 11th, 2012 by JJ Koczan

I’d imagine if you’re in the UK and the kind of person to whom the idea might occur to do so in the first place it must be pretty hard not to immediately found a label and start signing bands. Looks like the temptation was too much to resist for your good friends and mine at The Sleeping Shaman. This morning notice came in on the PR wire that the newly-minted Shaman Recordings will release the debut LP from Liverpudlian folksy doomers Black Magician this summer. The album, Nature is the Devil’s Church, was mastered by Tony Reed, which, you know, always helps.

And yeah, I know news stories go in the news forum these days — you’ll note it’s there too — but sometimes you have to make exceptions for friends. Same team and all that. Much respect. Here’s the info:

Shaman Recordings are ecstatic to announce that their first release will be the debut album by prog doomers Black Magician, the title for which can now be announced as Nature is the Devil’s Church.

The album was recorded and mixed by Matt Richardson at Full Stack Studio, mastering is being handled by Tony Reed (Stone Axe/Saint Vitus) and will feature four tracks of mystical folk-inspired prog doom, which clocks in at just under the 40-minute mark.

Nature is the Devil’s Church is set for a Summer 2012 release featuring artwork from up and coming illustrator Andrew Sloan and will be strictly limited to 300 copies on black vinyl with a digital download (and the possibility of a CD released by the band themselves) available soon after.

Presales will be available, although no official date has been set yet so in the meantime, check out the demo track “Four Thieves Vinegar” below to give you a taste of the horror that is to come…
