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 →

Nusquama – Horizon Ontheem (Eisenwald)

A bit of Dutch black metal never did anyone any harm, and here we have some from Nusquama, whose members play with Fluisteraars, Laster and Turia. “De Aarde Dorst” starts and continues with magnificent, fiery intensity. Hairs are made to… Continue Reading →

Satyagraha – An Insistence on Truth (S/R Demo)

The first thing is that this demo is by Satyagraha from Perlis in Malaysia, not any of the alternatives of the same name out there. The term satyagraha itself is best known for meaning passive political resistance in the Gandhi… Continue Reading →

Devil Master – Satan Spits On Children Of Light (Relapse Records)

Well here’s a big slice of frantic metal joy! Devil Master are a quartet hailing from Philadelphia that play an unholy mash up of blackened death metal and punk with a liberal dollop of goth rock – think Nunslaughter playing… Continue Reading →

Besta – Eterno Rancor (Lifeforce Records)

Portuguese grinders Besta have a plethora of releases each out delivering an onslaught of pure grindcore mayhem and this latest album continues that violent attitude to song writing with 16 songs of incendiary ferociousness that has hints of modern era… Continue Reading →

No Man’s Valley – Outside The Dream (Tonzonen Records)

Ave Noctem is a site that prides itself about being unbeholden to any payment, any sponsors, and bringing you the best “extreme and atmospheric music”, amongst other goals. Well, Holland’s own, or is that “The Netherlands own”?, I can never… Continue Reading →

Imprecation – Damnatio Ad Bestias (Dark Descent)

One thing that I really love about being completely obsessed with music is discovering all of the cult bands and releases. It fills you with a strange sense of achievement as if you’ve attained some sort of prowess in your… Continue Reading →

Aephanemer – Prokopton (Primeval Records)

I only became aware of French band Aphanemer after seeing them live at Warhorns Festival in 2018. Live they really impressed me; a young, energetic and wonderfully musically adept band who looked great on stage and used it well. After… Continue Reading →

Disfago – Snake.Triangle.Sacrifice (S/R)

This grubby UK outfit’s vitriolic seven inch from 2015 is riddled with vehement chaotic nihilism, an honest slab of discordant mayhem ransacking various genres and this newest offering continues those assertions with an album saturated in old school violence but… Continue Reading →

Omgeving – Wijde Wijdte (Hypnotic Dirge)

Instrumental albums and artists used to really bug me, I can’t quite put my finger on why they just did. Perhaps it was the fact that I didn’t have much time or care for more progressive sounds, or maybe it… Continue Reading →

Blodskam – La Bas (Suicide Records)

Blodskam are brothers from Sweden and their musical roots date back to 1998 when they conceived their black metal beast. The duo didn’t release anything bearing the Blodskam moniker until recently when Aghora and Dodfodd entered the studio and enlisted… Continue Reading →

Triste Terre – Grand Oeuvre (Ladlo Productions)

“Baroque classical avant-garde black metal”. “Hieratic songs built like cathedrals of noble darkness”. These words were my initial introduction to this work and band. Six monstrous pieces comprise “Grand Oeuvre”. There’s no wasting time. We are immediately launched into vast… Continue Reading →
