Jesus Chrüsler Supercar – Lücifer (Dr. Music Records)

A few years back, Swedish Death ‘n’ Rollers Jesus Chrüsler Supercar unleashed ‘35 Supersonic’. A gnarly, fuzzed-up adrenaline shot of good time, doomy, rock and roll. You’ll be pleased to know that their infernal follow up album ‘Lücifer’ continues this… Continue Reading →

Illum Adora – …of Serpentine Forces (Folter Records)

Illum Adora specialize in traditional black metal (of the 2nd wave variety), and have just unleashed their debut album ‘…of Serpentine Forces’ via Folter Records. The German band, consisting of the brilliantly monikered main man Hurricane Hellfukker (from Zarathustra), Shargaz… Continue Reading →

The Haunting Green – Natural Extinctions (Hypnotic Dirge)

How about some Eco-doom from Italian duo The Haunting Green? ‘Natural Extinctions’ is the first full-length recording from Cristiano Perin (guitar, vocals, and electronics) and drummer/vocalist Chantal Fresco, and is a potent brew of experimental dirge, and persuasive power. A… Continue Reading →

The Young Gods – Data Mirage Tangram (Two Gentlemen / Rough Trade)

The Young Gods are back! The Swiss industrial pioneers have returned with their new studio L.P. ‘Data Mirage Tangram’, their first full album since 2010’s ‘Everybody Knows’. Recorded after a time of public experimentation, Young Gods’ main man Franz Treichler… Continue Reading →

Nachtmystium – Resilient (Prophecy)

It’s been a long and fucked up ride for U.S. black metal experimentalists Nachtmystium… A band whose “Black Meddle” has won critical acclaim, but whose leader has courted controversy and divided opinion. But no matter on how you feel about… Continue Reading →

Woebegone Obscured – The Forestroamer (Aesthetic Death)

It’s been a little while since Danish funeral doomsters Woebegone Obscured last skulked onto my music system, with 2014’s dramatic ‘Deathscape MMXIV’. Apparently, there’s been a self-titled EP released in the interim, but sorry lads, I missed that one. ‘The… Continue Reading →

Therapy? – Cleave (Marshall Records)

We live in troubled times, that’s for sure, and who better to help guide us through the stormy waters, but the troubled mind of Andy Cairns, and the razor-sharp riffs and rhythms of Therapy? Following on from their 2015 melodic… Continue Reading →

Taina – Seelenfresser (Viy Records)

There is a train of thought that suggests that Germans are incredibly efficient. Taina clearly missed that meeting, as it’s taken roughly 8 years to release their debut album. Formed in 2010 by vocalist/synth player WoLand and guitarist SerZh the… Continue Reading →

The Antichrist Imperium – Vol. II: Every Tongue Shall Praise Satan (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Back in 2015, blast-master David Gray unleashed ‘The Antichrist Imperium’ with former Akercocke guitarist Matt Wilcock. An awesome piece of avant-garde death/black metal utilizing the remnants of what would have been Ak’s 6th album. But now that the mighty Akercocke… Continue Reading →

Acârash – In Chaos Becrowned (Dark Essence Records)

“For fans of Rotting Christ, Darkthrone, Satyricon, Khold” reads the press release that accompanies ‘In Chaos Becrowned’, the debut album from Norwegian occult act Acârash. Maybe…but it does become somewhat clear as you listen to this album, that this band… Continue Reading →

Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Given the kind of music that my own band plays, I’m surprised that I’ve never checked out Limb before. It seems like I’ve been missing out on something very special, certainly if this third L.P. is anything to go by…. Continue Reading →

Nekrokraft – Servants (The Sign Records)

Swedish black metallers Nekrokraft have just unleashed their first full-length album ‘Servants’…And it’s a mixed bag to be fair. Following on from the 2016 mini-album ‘Will o’ Wisp’, ‘Servants’ is equal parts black/thrash and symphonic metal, that unfortunately fails to… Continue Reading →
