GosT – Valediction (Century Media)

Valediction opens with an absolute blast of keyboard driven black metal in ‘Relentless Passing’, a total howl which then drops into some gentler darkwave and out again into the harsh industrial landscape. Yes I’m back with GosT again where genre… Continue Reading →

Voz De Nenhum – Sublimation (Aesthetic Death)

This is one of a couple of albums currently on my review pile featuring Dictator of Cyprus. It might not be the most metal country in the world but he is certainly making up for that appearing past and present… Continue Reading →

Reverorum ib Malacht – Im Ra Distare Summum Soveris Seris Vas innoble (AnnapurnA)

Why not have a nightmare? That’s what this album seems to be about. This wasn’t unexpected after the Swedish black metal band’s previous album “Ter Agios Numini “ (2017). The sounds are intriguing as well as disturbing. Eeriness prevails. Merciless… Continue Reading →

Aenaon – Hypnosophy (Code666)

When I checked, for some reason I wasn’t surprised when I noticed. that this, the third album from Greek ‘progressive black metallers’ Aenaon was on Code666. Just something about its chaotic, semi industrial sound mixed in with the progressive elements…. Continue Reading →

Denigrata – Missa Defunctorum (S/R)

When I was offered to review this album, I wasn’t sure what to expect…..but it wasn’t this! The album is sung entirely in Latin and takes the form of a Requiem Mass, following the structure of Mozart’s Requiem Mass in… Continue Reading →
