Finnr’s Cane - Elegy (Prophecy Productions)

Finnr’s Cane – Elegy (Prophecy Productions)

What is about North America and atmospheric black(ish) metal? Wolves in the Throne Room, Agalloch, Panopticon are just a few examples of masters of this delicate art, and Canada’s Finnr’s Cave deserve to be held in the same high regard. Their debut from 2010 ‘Wanderlust’.. Read More
Blacklab - Under The Strawberry Moon 2.0 (New Heavy Sounds)

Blacklab – Under The Strawberry Moon 2.0 (New Heavy Sounds)

I was pleased to see this crop up in the review lists as a friend had highlighted the name Blacklab a while back and for once it has lodged in my tiny brain. Blacklab are a guitar/vocals and drum duo from Osaka and the 2.0.. Read More
The Lion’s Daughter – Future Cult (Season Of Mist)

The Lion’s Daughter – Future Cult (Season Of Mist)

A couple of years have gone by since USA blackened sludgers The Lion’s Daughter told us that Existence Is Horror and proved that statement to a certain extent with some rather nasty music, now they are back. My biggest complaint last time around was comparisons.. Read More
Distorted Harmony – A Way Out (S/R)

Distorted Harmony – A Way Out (S/R)

I had to be reminded that I’d seen Distorted Harmony when they played at ProgPower Europe in 2016. That’s not the most auspicious start but the fact that they were there is good in itself. This nicely packaged album is in fact the third from.. Read More
Eversin – Armageddon Genesi (My Kingdom Music)

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
In Purulence – Putrid Valley (Great Dane)

In Purulence – Putrid Valley (Great Dane)

Uniqueness, we all strive for it, everyone wants to be their own person this includes bands too. Sometimes artists strive for that rare, free-standing, genre-defying quality through means of experimentation melding together exhibits from selected genres, sometimes it works, other times it flops. Others look.. Read More
Schrat – Alptraumgänger (Folter Records)

Schrat – Alptraumgänger (Folter Records)

Despite the fact that I am a massive fan of Death Metal and despite the fact that Iron Maiden are the greatest band to have ever existed if someone asked me to describe Metal I would probably show them raw untamed Black Metal. Nothing encompasses.. Read More
Spurv – Myra (Fysisk Format)

Spurv – Myra (Fysisk Format)

‘Myra’ is the follow up to Norwegian post rockers Spurv’s debut album ‘Skarntyde’ – the band have spent three years crafting this record and, with guest performances from Ulver’s Tore Ylvisaker and Ole Aleksander Halstensgård, ‘Myra’ boasts a huge amount of promise. Like their previous.. Read More
Sathanas – Necrohymns (Transcending Obscurity Records)

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
Nocturnal Breed -  The Whiskey Tapes Germany (Folter Records)

Nocturnal Breed – The Whiskey Tapes Germany (Folter Records)

This here is one of those releases that the band describe as ‘for the fans’, the die hard fans describe as ‘rare and unreleased’ and the rest of us describe as an ‘odds n sods’ collection. As such it’s pretty impossible to review if you’re.. Read More
Trautonist – Ember (Wolves And Vibrancy Records / Pest Productions)

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
Carchosa - Carchosa (S/R)

Carchosa – Carchosa (S/R)

‘If you want something doing, you’re best doing it yourself’. Time and time again, this saying has proven true and in the case of Henrik Nygren from Malmö, Sweden, when he was trying to create his own musical venture. Unable to find anyone who was.. Read More
