Ars Magna Umbrae – Through Lunar Gateways (Hellthrasher)

Ars Magna Umbrae – Through Lunar Gateways (Hellthrasher)

Ready for a “manifestation of the Chthonic forces of Death and a sonic portal to the Nightside?” Well just as well as that is exactly what we have here courtesy of Ars Magna Umbrae from Poland, the work of D.A Khthōn. It would appear from.. Read More
Atriarch – Dead As Truth (Relapse)

Atriarch – Dead As Truth (Relapse)

Once I upgraded my musical reading from Smash Hits to N.M.E, Melody Maker and Sounds I remember well the tag of most miserable band in the world being thrown around a lot. It normally went in the direction of The Smiths, Joy Division and The.. Read More
The Lurking Fear – Out Of The Voiceless Grave (Century Media)

The Lurking Fear – Out Of The Voiceless Grave (Century Media)

Ah another band carrying the flag for all things Howard Phillip Lovecraft but this is no normal group even if you have never heard of them before but a bunch of Swedish veterans from the death metal scene. Call them a super-group if you will.. Read More
False Gods – Reports From Oblivion (S/R)

False Gods – Reports From Oblivion (S/R)

I had clocked the name of this NY based bunch swirling around the ether of the internet and thought they must be worth checking out considering they are self-released and only have previous EP prior to this one. Also it was impossible to resist as.. Read More
Pigs Blood – ST (Godz Ov War)

Pigs Blood – ST (Godz Ov War)

Well call me Carrie and drench me in Pigs Blood! Well don’t actually, as I have been there. Not the telekinetic, wrecking the school prom side of things but the being coated in foul smelling ichor. Whilst I have been listening to this album said.. Read More
Tele s therion - Luzifers Abschied (Minotauro Records)

Tele s therion – Luzifers Abschied (Minotauro Records)

It has been a while since I last heard from the strange and sinister Tele s therion who are not in any way shape or form to be confused with the operatic, symphonic grandeur of their near namesakes. This is a collective of like-minded musicians.. Read More
The Medea Project – S/T (S/R)

The Medea Project – S/T (S/R)

Not to be confused with the theatrical group for incarcerated women, that’s not to be said that their namesake, The Medea Project as a band, do not show a certain thespian flair. Having been around for some time with many members through their stage doors.. Read More
Tau Cross – Pillar Of Fire (Relapse)

Tau Cross – Pillar Of Fire (Relapse)

I had been waiting this one very impatiently along with tour dates. When the latter came along there were cries of indignation from lots of people as the UK was not included but the band were quick to say sorry and a second leg, including.. Read More
Prong, Spoil Engine & Hark – London Underworld 22/7/17

Prong, Spoil Engine & Hark – London Underworld 22/7/17

I have missed Prong the last few times they have played London due to clashes but on the strength of cracking new album Zero Days nothing was going to prevent me from seeing them tonight. Filtering in out of the summer rain, 1st up tonight.. Read More
Interview - Bloody Hammers

Interview – Bloody Hammers

They’re creepy and they’re kooky mysterious and spooky. Nope let’s not go down that route even if their world is a little on the strange and horrific side. Bloody Hammers consist of Anders Magna and Devallia who pass their time making dark, gothic doom music,.. Read More
Darkenhöld – Memoria Sylvarum (SR)

Darkenhöld – Memoria Sylvarum (SR)

It’s been 3 years since we last heard from French medievalist troupe Darkenhold and no doubt they have been holed up in their castle walls constructing their newest opus and fourth full length album. It’s immediately striking too when you are drawn to the fabulous.. Read More
Mitochondrion – Antinumerology (Krucyator Productions)

Mitochondrion – Antinumerology (Krucyator Productions)

Not a new release, fans of this Canadian black, death war machine have learnt to be patient as the band certainly do not work anywhere near as fast as they play. What we have here is a CD version of the 2013 release which originally.. Read More
