Eversin – Armageddon Genesi (My Kingdom Music)

The guys in this band have been around for almost 20 years having existed previously as Fuoco Fatuo (but not the death metal band of the same name I should add) prior to changing their name to Eversin. Eversin has categorised their music as a.. Read More

Sathanas – Necrohymns (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Well here’s a band that has completely slipped by me over their 30 year existence during which time they have released nine albums and 16 various other releases meaning I have lived under a proverbial rock it seems as they now release their tenth full.. Read More

Trautonist – Ember (Wolves And Vibrancy Records / Pest Productions)

Very rarely do I get an actual vinyl to review these days as Trautonist has seen fit to send their second album as a vinyl copy, and a gold vinyl at that too. The German trio has a self-titled debut that was a solid post-black.. Read More

Having been around for ten years this French act has released only one split during that time and within their ranks they have an ex-member of Svart Crown, namely Clément Flandrois who does vocals and guitar on this, the band’s debut full length. An elongated.. Read More

Abstracter – Cinereous Incarnate (I, Voidhanger Records)

Secreting from the US this colossally oppressive extreme metal act suffocates the planet with their third auditory excretion that equates to asphyxiation submerged within a vat of corrosive bitumen the moment the album starts with “Nether”. Whilst my superlative ridden opening garland hints at a.. Read More
The Konsortium – Rogaland (Agonia Records)

The Konsortium – Rogaland (Agonia Records)

This Norwegian band is notable for having Dirge Rep (drums), who has played in numerous bands and Teloch (Mayhem, Nidingr) in its ranks and released a self-titled debut in 2011 which I have not heard but it appears that the band has changed direction according.. Read More

Djevelkult – Når Avgrunnen Åpnes (Saturnal Records)

The symbiotic relationship between Norway and black metal is one that has existed for about 30 years and still continues to produce quality bands and if you go to the Inferno festival in Oslo you can certainly vouch for my statement as the raft of.. Read More

Sadistik Forest – Morbid Majesties (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Transcending Obscurity is fast becoming one of my favourite record labels such is the depth and wealth of their current roster of bands and I can now add the curiously named Sadistik Forest from Finland to that ever growing list of bands not only from.. Read More

Kingdom – Putrescent Remains Of The Dead Ground (Godz Ov War Productions)

Apart from the band’s debut this Polish act love their long album titles even though their albums are relatively short as this fourth clocks in the sub 30 minute mark and begins with an eerie almost sinister riff on “Walls Of Askalon” that has an.. Read More
Violation Wound – With Man In Charge (Peaceville Records)

Violation Wound – With Man In Charge (Peaceville Records)

Headed up by Chris Reifert (Autopsy) there is a spattering of releases from Violation Wound who formed in 2014 when I reviewed the bands self-titled debut of which I was very complimentary with its no nonsense skin stripping punk rock. This second full length continues.. Read More
Vorbid – Mind (Indie Recordings)

Vorbid – Mind (Indie Recordings)

I have to admit to being surprised that this young Norwegian thrash act has got signed to Indie Recordings so quickly, this coming on the back of me watching their very nervous performance at Bloodstock Open Air in 2017 on the New Blood Stage. However.. Read More

Unravel – Eras Of Forfeit (Testimony Records)

Very occasionally, and I mean very occasionally an album appears for review or just to listen to that makes you stop what you’re doing, even taking notes, and pay total and resolute attention. That is exactly what this Australian band has done with their debut.. Read More
