Enslaved - E (Nuclear Blast)

Enslaved – E (Nuclear Blast)

With a discography to die for, our favourite black metal innovators, Enslaved, are back and they have something new hiding up their wizard sleeves. Here, on their fourteenth long-player, they exercise their love for the Norse god of War, Odin, and they sem hell-bent on.. Read More
Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere (Karisma Records)

Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere (Karisma Records)

The interesting thing about Norway’s Wobbler, whose fourth album this is, is that they push boundaries in the world of prog, yet their music is so recognisable. This, without doubt, is the charm of it. This prog that they peddle is of an older school.. Read More
Bell Witch – Mirror Reaper (Profound Lore)

Bell Witch – Mirror Reaper (Profound Lore)

Review a one track 83 minute doom track they said. It will be good for you and fun they said. Well actually they didn’t but curiosity got the better of me (and you know what they bloody well said about that). Perhaps like the rest.. Read More
Vuur - In This Moment We Are Free – Cities (Inside Out)

Vuur – In This Moment We Are Free – Cities (Inside Out)

Anneke Van Giersbergen is a household name across the globe for any self-respecting metal head who leans towards the more symphonic brand of the metal world, and Anneke is back. This time she is flanked by some of the most highly respected Dutch musicians, which.. Read More
Der Blutharsch and the Infinite Church of the Leading Hand- What makes you Pray (WBR)

Der Blutharsch and the Infinite Church of the Leading Hand- What makes you Pray (WBR)

Transmission number 53 apparently from planet Der Blutharsch and these are becoming a bit of a regular thing since they discovered us. Not a problem, I am happy to waffle on about this Austrian lot’s odd musical cosmos. Their promo discs are especially nice coming.. Read More
Hourswill – Harm Full Embrace (Ethereal Sound Works)

Hourswill – Harm Full Embrace (Ethereal Sound Works)

Sometimes you listen to a band, which sounds uncannily like another one that you know well. This is the case here. I’d not heard of Hourswill, whose second album this is, but for me there is a stunning resemblance in the choruses to early Mercenary,.. Read More
Endseeker - Flesh Hammer Prophecy (FDA Records)

Endseeker – Flesh Hammer Prophecy (FDA Records)

Endseeker are a relatively new phenomenon, with just 3 years under their belts, which undoubtedly will be laden with bullets, in keeping with true metal tradition. Endseeker first teased us with the EP ‘Corrosive Revelation’ back in 2014, and subsequently released the split ‘Awaking corpses:.. Read More
Spectral Voice – Eroded Corridors Of Unbeing (Dark Descent Records)

Spectral Voice – Eroded Corridors Of Unbeing (Dark Descent Records)

It is quite possible that Dark Descent is one of my favourite record labels and has been for the past few years due to the continual output of top quality extreme music they release and this debut full length from US doom death outfit Spectral.. Read More
Ancient VVisdom – 33 (Argonauta Records)

Ancient VVisdom – 33 (Argonauta Records)

My Relationship with Ancient VVisdom began rather unexpectedly at the Inferno Festival 2012, in the small John Dee room. I was happily having my head caved in by all sorts of extremity such as Svarttjern and One Tail, One Head, when the carnage relented for.. Read More
Altarage -  Endinghent (Season Of Mist)

Altarage – Endinghent (Season Of Mist)

Strange and sinister creatures stalk the Basque Country of Spain bringing terror to the area not seen since the likes of The Blind Dead rode into town in all their ghastly glory. Well that is what the imagination dictates when looking at Altarage who we.. Read More
Nihil Eyes – Black Path (S/R)

Nihil Eyes – Black Path (S/R)

As a patriotic sort, I always get excited when a new UK death metal band sticks its head up. Now I appreciate that there are loads new bands from all over the world releasing albums left, right and centre but most are about as much.. Read More
Mork -  Eremittens Dal (Peaceville)

Mork – Eremittens Dal (Peaceville)

Even before you reach the music here with Thomas Eriksen’s Mork one man project, you kind of get big galloping clues as to what you’ll get. From the logo to artwork and even the damned label you are walloped in the face with a whole.. Read More
