Fleurety - Fragmenta Cuinsvis Aetatis Contemporaneae (Aesthetic Death)

Fleurety – Fragmenta Cuinsvis Aetatis Contemporaneae (Aesthetic Death)

Those manipulators of mayhem and tormentors of trickery Fleurety have called in from planet very strange again and caught us completely off guard. Nobody should be that surprised though as it is what the Norwegian outfit centred around core members Svein Egil Hatlevik and Alexander.. Read More
Zeal & Ardor, Pryapisme & Combineharvester – London Underworld 20/4/17

Zeal & Ardor, Pryapisme & Combineharvester – London Underworld 20/4/17

I’ll say something about this show, it would have sold out a lot quicker than a few hours before doors if Roadburn was not on. Zeal And Ardor’s excellent ‘Devil Is Fine’ album has caused a huge buzz among those in the know. It got.. Read More
Alfahanne - Det Nya Svarta (Indie)

Alfahanne – Det Nya Svarta (Indie)

Back around January 2014 Swedish reprobates Alfahanne really burst on the scene with debut album Alfapokalypse. It was a breath of rotten air bolstered by an urgent clamouring punked up backbone that took in various different ideas throughout its short, sharp running time. Driven by.. Read More
Elsa Fraulein SS – Patrice Rhomm (Maison Rouge)

Elsa Fraulein SS – Patrice Rhomm (Maison Rouge)

More disreputable sleaze from the Eurociné stable here and it’s obvious that Screenbound Entertainment who have been releasing these films under the Maison Rouge and Black House imprint scored a veritable job lot. The French production company was responsible for putting out a stack of.. Read More
Mourning Dawn – Waste (Aesthetic Death)

Mourning Dawn – Waste (Aesthetic Death)

Last Easter Sunday involved a rare opportunity to see French band Mourning Dawn live at Doom Over London. This one and here I sit writing about their new EP. Pure coincidence that this is, I can’t help getting slightly spooked thinking something may have aligned.. Read More
Örth – Nocturno Inferno (Satanic Art Media)

Örth – Nocturno Inferno (Satanic Art Media)

1996 was a vintage year for black metal releases. Heaven Shall Burn.., Antichrist, Stormblast, Filosofem, Nemesis Divina, Aspera Hiems Symfonia. I could go on just as easily as I could fill in the band names to go with these classics but you know them well.. Read More
Beast Modulus – Being (S/R)

Beast Modulus – Being (S/R)

I had absolutely no idea what this was going to sound like until I decided to just throw it in the player and find out. Apparently although now based in Brooklyn, Beast Modulus started out in New Orleans as a project based on composition of.. Read More
Crimson – Juan Fortuny (Black House)

Crimson – Juan Fortuny (Black House)

I’m not sure why but I always thought of this film as being helmed under the directorship of Paul Naschy and it’s not really surprising due to his prolific stamp over Spanish cinema as both actor and director and indeed he does play a central.. Read More
King Dude, Sol Invictus, Of The Wand And Moon – London Underworld 11/4/17

King Dude, Sol Invictus, Of The Wand And Moon – London Underworld 11/4/17

I had been looking forward to this one having never seen King Dude and loving his albums. Excellent supports made this a huge draw too and it was nice to actually go to a mellow show for a change and not actually get punched in.. Read More
Obitus – Slaves Of The Vast Machine (Hypnotic Dirge)

Obitus – Slaves Of The Vast Machine (Hypnotic Dirge)

In formative years all we heard was radio gaga, short songs designed for unchallenging airplay. Of course there was classical music and opera which lasted for several centuries but that was for fossils not for young kids with whole lives ahead of them. Naturally as.. Read More
Taake, Winterfylleth & De Profundis – London Dome 7/4/17

Taake, Winterfylleth & De Profundis – London Dome 7/4/17

The madness never stops. England seems to have never had it quite so good with shows at the moment. Leeds looks like the place to really be at the weekend with Ritual Fest happening but there’s stacks of bands in London too. Tufnell Park has.. Read More
Extremity – Extremely Fucking Dead (20 Buck Spin)

Extremity – Extremely Fucking Dead (20 Buck Spin)

Yeah I took one look at band name and title and thought bunch of bloody kids trying to be controversial with rude words and all that. Not the case at all though, you wouldn’t get a starry eyed bunch of young ones turning down the.. Read More
