The Negative Bias – Lamentation of the Chaos Omega (ATMF)

The Negative Bias – Lamentation of the Chaos Omega (ATMF)

For today’s dose of atmospheric black metal, we move to Austria. My first impression when picking up this album was of the selection of grandiose titles. And I was pleased when “The Golden Key to a Pandemonium Kingdom” lived up to its pompous name. It.. Read More
Nuckin' Futs – Abyss (Blood Fire Death)

Nuckin’ Futs – Abyss (Blood Fire Death)

Catalonia is a hotbed of social unrest at the moment. Feelings of oppression, loss of cultural identity, wanting to go their own way… It’s the perfect foil for some good old fashioned thrash metal! Nuckin’ Futs, a five piece from the troubled region have seized.. Read More
Schattenfall – Schaten In Schwarz (Wolfspell)

Schattenfall – Schaten In Schwarz (Wolfspell)

I had not unsurprisingly thought that this lot were a purely German outfit but although based there looking into things in more detail it appears the trio is has a Ukrainian musician in their ranks too, the drummer of White Ward. Their music is described.. Read More
Deinonychus – Ode To Acts Of Murder, Dystopia And Suicide (My Kingdom Music)

Deinonychus – Ode To Acts Of Murder, Dystopia And Suicide (My Kingdom Music)

What a delightful album title, fair warms the cockles and caresses the soul. Well at least someone looking to buy a loved one a present this festering season can’t be excused for making a mistake and it could be given to send a message. Mind.. Read More
Almyrkvi - Umbra (Ván)

Almyrkvi – Umbra (Ván)

What is even more shocking than Iceland’s recent rampant assault on the black metal scene (yes, we’re all still going on about it) is that it took so bloody long. I mean, sure Norway has the fjords and the mountains, Sweden has the icy lakes.. Read More
Milkilo - Atlas (Vox Project)

Milkilo – Atlas (Vox Project)

This intriguing-sounding album is in fact this French bass and drum noise duo’s first, but having been around for seven years they have been honing their ideas, touring and releasing a trio of EPs. I don’t know at what point this band started but what.. Read More
Doom Side of the Moon - Self Titled (Mascot)

Doom Side of the Moon – Self Titled (Mascot)

Oh boy, I asked for this one. No, literally, I did. You see, Thee Editor had posted a discussion on it, and I happened to mention that having heard it over on Youtube, I thought that this was better than the original. Now, of course,.. Read More
Iku Turso - The Great Tower (Wolfspell)

Iku Turso – The Great Tower (Wolfspell)

I do like a band who do exactly what it says on the tin. “Smell of black metal 90-95” goes the instruction on Iku Turso’s debut and there it is in all its pungent glory. Seriously. This is an international four piece with feet in.. Read More
Ieschure - The Shadow (Iron Bonehead)

Ieschure – The Shadow (Iron Bonehead)

I think it’s fair to say, that within the genre of extreme metal, you can get away with quite a bit, and certainly within the realms of black metal… …Well, you can actually get away with releasing something that…erm, isn’t very good really. All subjective.. Read More
Solar Sons – Retrograde Motion (S/R)

Solar Sons – Retrograde Motion (S/R)

Ladies and gents who may be reading this, let me advise you that if you are a fan of hard rock or metal, there is precious little reason to visit the former industrial powerhouse and now excluded candidate for European City of Culture that is.. Read More

Have you been waiting patiently for the last 5 years for a new Summoning album? Well not long to go until Silenius and Protector deliver new opus ‘With Doom We Come.’ If you are really hungering for an immediate trip to Middle Earth you will.. Read More
Ayat- Carry on, Carrion (Moribund)

Ayat- Carry on, Carrion (Moribund)

It is hard for me to review this album by Lebanese BM bods Ayat objectively. A lot is made online of the threat that these guys live under due to their anti religious , anti conformist stance. As far as I was concerned Lebanon is.. Read More
