Schammasch – Hearts Of No Light (Prosthetic)

The Bible, I have learned, mentions a trumpet blast or rather multiple blasts performed by angels announcing the apocalypse, preceding the resurrection of the dead and the return of God to Earth. The angel on the cover of Schammasch’s new… Continue Reading →

Karyn Crisis’ Gospel of the Witches – Covenant (Aural Music)

Henry Rollins was once asked in an interview for his opinion about Ron Reyes (one of the original Black Flag singers) who had become a Born again Christian. Reluctant to comment on the strangeness of that fact, Rollins, unusually untalkative,… Continue Reading →

Cloak – The Burning Dawn (Season Of Mist)

An invisibility cloak might be a nice thing to have to frighten the neighbours this upcoming Halloween. Alas, the garment the band Cloak refer to would probably not be used to cause mischief, but rather to cover yourself with in… Continue Reading →

Ultha & White Ward – Zagreb, Mochvara, 14/10/2019

Although Monday is not a good day for a show, with the weekend just behind you and a whole week of getting up early before you, quite a few people decided that seeing White Ward and Ultha play at Zagreb’s… Continue Reading →

Blut aus Nord – Hallucinogen (Debemur Morti)

What to say, when everything has already been said? I’m a bit late reviewing this. Everybody else has already done it, it seems. It’s quite a challenge, therefore, to find something original and new to say. But I’ll certainly try…. Continue Reading →

E-L-R – Maenad (Prophecy Productions)

Where are we? Somewhere in nature definitely. To a background of looped tunes, someone is hurrying through dry leaves or high grass, breathing heavily. The person might be running away or just climbing up a hill. But that’s just the… Continue Reading →

Dreamarcher – The Bond (Indie)

The first bio/info I saw about Dreamarcher said that they were a “blackened progressive metal gem based in Oslo, Norway.” I am fond of weird combination of words, and “gem” together with what went before it got me intrigued right… Continue Reading →

Lindy-Fay Hella – Seafarer (Van Records)

Seafarer is what Lindy-Fay Hella of Wardruna chose to call her first solo album, and one can’t help but immediately think of the Vikings and Hella’s main band. But while Seafarer’s connections to Norse culture are indeed evident in music… Continue Reading →

Wires & Lights – A Chasm Here And Now (SPV)

Wires & Lights are a relatively new band from Berlin, Germany, and the album at hand, A Chasm Here And Now, is their first long player. What’s it like? Well, the press info is all in superlatives. And no, that’s… Continue Reading →

Mgla – Zagreb Mochvara 6/9/19

With some honourable exceptions, black metal bands seem to be avoiding South-Eastern Europe. For no reason really, as the sold out Mgla show in Zagreb proves. There are clubs and individuals that are perfectly able to organize and promote the… Continue Reading →

Foscor – Els Sepulcres Blancs (Season Of Mist)

Els Sepulcres Blancs (The White Tombs) is Foscor’s new album and the second volume of what is planned to be a trilogy inspired by the fin de siècle artistic movement. Fin de siècle is French for “end of the century”,… Continue Reading →

Culted – Vespertina Synaxis: A Prayer for Union & Emptiness (Season Of Mist)

Apparently, the four band members of Culted, though they’ve been a band for about ten years now, have never been in a room together. Three of the band members are at home in the Canadian prairies, while one of them… Continue Reading →
