Coliseum/Doomriders - Not Of This World 7" (Reissue)


1. Coliseum - Am I Demon
2. Doomriders - Possession

Cult US record label Magic Bullet are about to celebrate their 20th anniversary and as part of those celebrations they're putting out a number of special releases. A reissue of the 2005 Danzig tribute split featuring Coliseum and Doomriders is one of those releases (it was actually officially released last week) . Featuring brand new artwork by Florian Bertmer, this 7" contains one song from each band. This series by Magic Bullet is their way of giving something back to the band and musicians that inspired them and also to the fans that have supported them along the way. 

Readers here should be familiar with both Coliseum and Doomriders. It also shouldn’t come as a surprise that both bands were influenced by Danzig. Coliseum’s version of Am I Demon is a gloriously noisy, groovy affair. Taking from their punk/stoner roots and adding horror-addled rock n roll for good measure, in a way that Danzig would appreciate. Doomriders take on Possession with off-kilter, noise-rock vibes aplenty. There’s a lot of old-school punk rock swagger in their rendition too. A beer swilling, chain smoking two-song tribute to one of punk rock’s biggest bands is reason enough to pick up a copy of this.
