Dødsengel – Interequinox (Debemur Morti)

Dødsengel – Interequinox (Debemur Morti)

Band name, album title, record label, it’s kind of like we are writing in some sort of arcane and long forgotten language. But it’s our language and those versed in Norwegian Black Metal and very good French record labels are all who need to entry!.. Read More
Where The Sun Comes Down – Welcome (Minotauro)

Where The Sun Comes Down – Welcome (Minotauro)

It’s not often we get discs turn up with covers that appear to be drawn by children in felt tip pen and there’s something a little bit unsettling about it all. In fact this album by Where The Sun Comes Down takes a lot of.. Read More
Reptil – Throne Of Collapse (Razor Music)

Reptil – Throne Of Collapse (Razor Music)

The freaks are out with this German act of self-described “individuals,” who are certainly that. They seem to be led by a dreadlocked messiah who describes them as being either the biggest joy or biggest disaster in his life. Videos are eye-catching as they cover.. Read More
Sabbath Assembly – Rites Of Passage (Svart)

Sabbath Assembly – Rites Of Passage (Svart)

It’s always fascinating following a band from conception through various stages, wondering what they are going to come up with next. Sabbath Assembly have certainly kept the interest levels up with their body of work since dabbling with the hymnals and esoteric mysteries of The.. Read More
Earth Electric – Vol 1: Solar (Season Of Mist)

Earth Electric – Vol 1: Solar (Season Of Mist)

Blimey how time flies, was it really 4 years ago that Ava Inferi made the surprise decision to bow out at seemingly the top of their game? It would appear so and after 4 excellent albums it was certainly a loss to their fans if.. Read More
Drug Honkey – Cloak Of Skies (Transcending Obscurity)

Drug Honkey – Cloak Of Skies (Transcending Obscurity)

It’s been a long time brewing in the meth lab, we have not heard from musical chemists Drug Honkey since 2012 when they released last album ‘Ghost In The Fire.’ The Illinois based band have always been interesting and I have been following their dealings.. Read More
GraVil – No More Forgiveness (S/R)

GraVil – No More Forgiveness (S/R)

I have vague recollections of this lot’s early demos passing through these parts for coverage on an earlier website around 2008-9. Even if not from the music the artwork and name certainly rang a bell but what was said and by who is long gone... Read More
Wapentake – Murmurations (S/R)

Wapentake – Murmurations (S/R)

Yes it is an odd word and apparently means “(in the UK) a subdivision of certain northern and midland English counties, corresponding to a hundred in other counties.” As far as musical origins are concerned 1st port of call is Hampshire and a now defunct.. Read More
The Entity - Sidney J. Furie (Eureka)

The Entity – Sidney J. Furie (Eureka)

Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s with a really unhealthy fascination in the supernatural; ghosts, hauntings and things that generally made very loud bumps in the night, meant being really caught between a rock and a hard place. It was the golden age of.. Read More
Cult Of Erinyes – Tiberivs (Code666)

Cult Of Erinyes – Tiberivs (Code666)

Friends, Romans Countrymen lend me your ears! It’s ancient history time as Belgian band Cult Of Erinyes conceptually dip back into the reign of Tiberius Claudius Nero, Roman Emperor who lived from 42 BC –37 AD. It was a tempestuous era and one that once.. Read More
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
