Kassad – London Orbital (Hypnotic Dirge)

We last heard from one-man, anonymous, London based black metal entity Kassad with debut album ‘Faces Turn Away’ back in 2017. The project intrigued me then and does so all the more now. London Orbital takes a ring-road around our… Continue Reading →

Terrifiant – Terrifiant (Gates of Hell)

This is a new band from Belgium; there is a lot of traffic around the internet about them I have seen recently. Essentially, this is an unashamed throwback metal release. To my ears more US metal and a touch of… Continue Reading →

Innards – Back From The Grave, Straight In Your Face (Transcending Obscurity)

Death Metal right now is probably one of the most interesting genres out there and I don’t just mean within the confines of Metal. I feel like the genre has grown to a stage whereby there are so many different… Continue Reading →

Stråle – Bourbon Souls (FDA Records)

It might come as a surprise to those who frequent the hallowed pages of Ave Noctum to see yours truly doing a review for a band on F.D.A, a renowned Death Metal label. Not least myself. But as the description… Continue Reading →

Ad Vitam Infernal – Infernal Comedy (Lavadome)

It must be a daunting prospect being a new band. You put all your stock into creating something fresh and invigorating. Not to mention the fact that your material will always sound good to your ear because you’re forever practising… Continue Reading →

Shadow Witch – In The Shadow Of The Witch (Argonauta Records)

There’s a question that I get asked on those rare occasions I get recognised as somebody who does a little bit of music reviewing that can really get my goat, and it is normally asked in the format of “hey,… Continue Reading →

Torpëdo – Mechanic Tyrants (Gates of Hell)

This is a re-release of this German band’s debut 2019 demo. I have this with the band picture on it, so I am not new to this material. The music is labelled as speed metal, I have more affliction to… Continue Reading →

Tzun Tzu – The Forbidden City (Lavadome)

Gimmicks in Metal aren’t anything new, from the ridiculousness of the likes of Alestorm to the more intellectual Egyptian themes of Nile. Not to mention all the Lovercraftian and Occult themed artists, it’s pretty safe to say that gimmicks are… Continue Reading →

Suicide Silence – Become The Hunter (Nuclear Blast)

It’s probably not fishing in a hyperbolic pond to suggest that Suicide Silence, since their inception way back in 2002, have undergone what could best be described as a number of anus horribilis in recent times. But let me cleave… Continue Reading →

Disastroid – Mortal Fools (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Heavy Psych Sounds is an underground label that continues to gain respect for their signings, and from their name you could well guess the sort of sound that characterised their first forays. However, taking a step away from purely nominative… Continue Reading →

Colosso – Apocalypse (Transcending Obscurity)

There have been plenty of bands that have used the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse as the staging for their sonic annihilation as this Portuguese outfit has four songs for the four horsemen with each having a different vocalist to… Continue Reading →

Nukore – One Minute Silence (Blood Fire Death)

“Do you miss the rap metal of the early 90’s,” posits the question of the PR blurb and I look around wondering if someone is asking me a trick question? The answer is of course a big resounding “FUCK NO”… Continue Reading →
