Cosmic Lava was a website run out of Germany, dedicated to reviews of concerts and albums in the doom, stoner, psychedelic and doom scenes. The site started in 1999 and was very active, notably documenting Saint Vitus' 2003 Reunion show in Germany and a lot of key appearances of doom bands making their first trips to Europe. The site would cease updates by January 2016 though both individuals involved with the site would remain active with the Vincebus Eruptum zine.


  • Interviews - The members of Cosmic Lava would interview someone in the scene, asking various questions about upcoming records, touring and such. Notably the site's first interview was with Penance while their last was with Dream Death in 2013.
  • Concert Reviews - Various reviews of attended shows between 1999 and 2013 though many of these reviews are just pictures from attended shows.
