Unaussprechlichen Kulten – Teufelsbücher (Iron Bonehead)

When even copying the band name from the promo blurb does not work as it’s been spelt wrong there, sheesh… Got there in the end though and this band who I term the unpronounceable cult from Chile sure don’t make… Continue Reading →

Mayhem – Daemon (Century Media)

No background details needed here, apart from the fact perhaps that we now see Mayhem on new label Century Media; they had a good run on Season Of Mist. This is all about the music and not the infamy of… Continue Reading →

Heruka – Turning To Dust (Narcoleptica Productions)

Although active since 2000 it took 18 years for Italian band Heruka to get around to debut album Deception’s End. It was an interesting disc with plenty of ideas going on in it not least due to the heady historic… Continue Reading →

Birdeatsbaby – The World Conspires (DR Music)

Brighton band Birdeatsbaby dip their toes in our world rather than being the sort of band we would normally look at but then again, they co-exist in many musical universes. One only has to look at a recent covers album… Continue Reading →

Arx Atrata – The Path Untravelled (S/R)

This is a path I have travelled since it began back in 2013 with debut album Oblivion and continued 3 years later on Spiritus In Terra. The one thing that amazes me is the still self-released status of Arx Atrata,… Continue Reading →

Profanatica – Rotting Incarnation Of God (Season Of Mist)

So a new chapter for Profanatica. Nope not musically, they are still very much preaching their foul old testament as far as that is concerned so don’t go looking for anything in the way of evolution in that respect. However,… Continue Reading →

Imperium Dekadenz, Agrona & Stahlsarg – London Black Heart 11/10/19

I doubt I am the only person who has been patiently waiting for atmospheric Bavarian black metal troop Imperium Dekadenz to make it over to the UK. Finally they have, to play 2 shows, this and Atmosfest in Nottingham. That’s… Continue Reading →

Trrma Charlemagne Palestine – Sssseegmmeentss Frooom Baaari (Becoq Records)

Pardon, did I stutter? Errr, well it would have been far simpler to simply write politely whence this CD came from and said thanks but no thanks it isn’t really for us but then in doing so I would have… Continue Reading →

Skinner – Ivan Nagy (101 Films)

While we have some great companies in the UK releasing genre titles there’s a huge amount of output going on Stateside as well. Production houses such as Synapse, Blue Underground, Severin, Vinegar Syndrome, Code Red and Mondo Macabro really deliver… Continue Reading →

MRome – Leech Ghetto (S/R)

As I discovered on covering last unwieldly entitled album ‘Noetic Collision on the Roof of Hell’ Polish band MRome don’t exactly play by the rules. Truly independent they state that they “are not interested in promoting band members by lame… Continue Reading →

Verheerer – Monolith (Vendetta Records)

Starting off as a duo German band Verheerer (Devastator) released debut album Maltrér back in 2018. Obviously it went down well although seemingly was missed entirely by us and the impetus from it has encouraged the band to recruit three… Continue Reading →

3 From Hell – Rob Zombie (Lionsgate)

Well the release of this is somewhat overshadowed by the passing of one of this trilogy of film’s most loveable stars Sid Haig. So much more than just a bad tempered, homicidal clown the veteran actor had appeared in nearly… Continue Reading →
