1349 – The Infernal Pathway (Season Of Mist)

Finally, Black Metal season! A lot of Black Metal musicians comment upon the atmosphere of a forest or grand landscapes and how they feed into their music. This might seem like a bit of a ludicrous statement to many but… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival Day Four – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 21/4/19

The final day of a festival is always bittersweet with a whole day of great bands left, but also knowing that when it is done, it is back to the grind of normal life. However, I was determined to enjoy… Continue Reading →

Nordjevel – Necrogenesis (Osmose Productions)

It is always nice to find a band during the early days of their career and support them with an air of smugness as the rest of the world (and by that I mean the metal underground!) eventually catches on…. Continue Reading →

Horizon Ablaze – The Weight of a Thousand Suns (Leviatan Diger)

Avant-garde extreme metal albums seem to be following me around so far this year, and here’s another one from Norway’s Horizon Ablaze. “The Weight of a Thousand Suns” is a “journey through the human psyche and a deep dive into… Continue Reading →

The Ugly – Thanatology (ViciSolum Productions)

The Ugly. Now there’s a name for a black metal band. This is the third full length from this Swedish horde, my first meeting with them and I guess they pretty much lay out their plan of attack from about… Continue Reading →

Stahlsarg were formed in 2013, and still have their original line up of Eissturm on vocals and guitars, Krieg joining him on guitars, Destruction pounding on the bass and Eisenfaust providing the back bone on the drums, and they have… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Narbeleth – Indomitvs (Folter Records)

When I saw that I had been given a Cuban black metal release for review, I immediately had a mental image of a corpse painted dude chilling out in the sun by a pool with a large cigar……Geographical stereotypes aside,… Continue Reading →

Satyricon – Deep calleth upon Deep (Napalm)

Satyricon have returned from a night at the opera, armed with a record that sounds…well, to these ears anyway…quite similar to the last few. Great news if you enjoyed ‘Now, Diabolical’ and ‘Age of Nero’ but not so good if… Continue Reading →

Acrimonious – Eleven Dragons (WTC Productions)

My poor attention span groaned inwardly when I saw the duration of this third album by Greek black metallers Acrimonious, an act unfamiliar to me but not any longer as this opus is one of staggering brilliance. Confidence pours from… Continue Reading →

From the Vastland – Chamrosh (Immortal Frost)

I was impressed with From the Vastland’s 2013 album “Kamarikan”, since then there’s been one further release prior to this one. What impressed me was the intensity of the black metal which this one man maelstrom from Iran generated. The… Continue Reading →
