Interview - So Much For Nothing

Interview – So Much For Nothing

Probably best known as the latest project featuring the talents of Nik Kvaforth, So Much For Nothing burst onto the scene earlier in 2012 with their debut album ‘Livsgnist’. When I reviewed it I stated it as a “downright exceptional album and one that any.. Read More
Never To Arise – Hacked To Perfection (badGod Music)

Never To Arise – Hacked To Perfection (badGod Music)

I’m not what you’d call a hardened death-head, but when a disc arrives with a booklet filled with grainy images of mutilated women and crude drawings of snuff-film scenarios one’s interest was definitely piqued. Of course you will have read my article on this fine.. Read More
King Fear – S/T (Quality Steel Records)

King Fear – S/T (Quality Steel Records)

Despite the fact I have always found Shakespeare about as appealing as a holiday in Ethiopia, a misreading of this band name automatically drew word associations to a similarly titled play. This duo is based in Hamburg according to their website, but features the vocal.. Read More

BirdEatsBaby – Feast Of Hammers (Self Released)

I’ve followed this quirky alt quartet since their debut album release landed on my doorstep back in 2009 and I straight away saw they had something special about them. It’s been good to see them progress through an EP and now a second full-length, especially.. Read More
Interview - Todesstoss

Interview – Todesstoss

Some time ago now I was sent two albums by mysterious German surrealist black mentalist Martin Lang for his project Todesstoss. There certainly seemed to be a lot more beneath the music worth exploring and with that I was keen to speak to the man.. Read More

The Great Old Ones – Al Azif (LADLO Productions)

If you know your H.P. Lovecraft then there’s a good chance you’ll be au fait with most of the themes referred to on this album. The Great Old Ones are a kind of ancient deity in the Cthulu Mythos, whom were long ago imprisoned; some.. Read More
The Bunny Game (Adam Rehmeier)

The Bunny Game (Adam Rehmeier)

The good folks at the British Board Of Film Classification (BBFC) must really love directors such as Adam Rehmeier. A micro budget horror film like The Bunny Game is just the kind of easy target the board needs to show what a worthwhile job they.. Read More
Interview - Wound (2010) director David Blyth

Interview – Wound (2010) director David Blyth

 Wound is a film I recently reviewed on this site; an independent film from New Zealand that can best be described as psychological surrealist art-horror. It’s a film that leaves the viewer with more questions than answers, and thankfully director David Blyth was happy to.. Read More
Interview - Vacantfield

Interview – Vacantfield

                        Vacantfield came to my attention late on in 2011, when their 3-track EP really stood out as something quite special. Despite these Greek avant-garde black metalists having formed 10 years ago, this is.. Read More
MURDER MOST REAL - Snuff-themed films to see before you die (in a damp basement at the hands of a deranged psycho with a super-8)

MURDER MOST REAL – Snuff-themed films to see before you die (in a damp basement at the hands of a deranged psycho with a super-8)

When it comes to modern film audiences, there is very little capable of shocking. Sure, you get the stray straight chick dragged in to watch Last House On The Left with her boyfriend who walks out in disgust, but by and large horror fans are.. Read More
