Tele s therion – Luzifers Abschied (Minotauro Records)

It has been a while since I last heard from the strange and sinister Tele s therion who are not in any way shape or form to be confused with the operatic, symphonic grandeur of their near namesakes. This is… Continue Reading →

T.O.M.B. – Fury Nocturnus (Peaceville)

‘Industrial Black Noise’ it says here and in that, I think it’s fair to say that ‘Fury Nocturnus’ delivers. Across fourteen tracks, this US-based trio clearly do their utmost to convey an ambience of impenetrable churning malice – of demented… Continue Reading →

Furze – Baphomet Wade (Fresh Tea)

Imagine if you will that black metal is a deck of cards. The Spades are the originators, the first and second wave, although of course the Ace is Motorhead, nobody is going to take that away from them. The Clubs… Continue Reading →

Todesstoss – Hirngemeer (I, Voidhanger Records)

Now, before I get stuck into this – and get stuck in I most certainly will – I need to clarify my position. I am no enemy of the avant-garde and the surreal, the abstract and the inaccessible. I have… Continue Reading →

Reverorum Ib Malacht – De Mysteris Dom Christi (Ajna Offensive)

OK, confession time – I listen to most of my music on my Ipod when travelling around. As much as I’d love to spend hours each evening huddled in front of my vinyl player with the lights dimmed, absorbing every… Continue Reading →

Neige Morte – Bicephaale (Consouling Sounds)

Fucked up French black metal is virtually par for the course for this nation, when it comes to wreaking havoc on the unsuspected listener and Neige Morte do just that with their second full length. This is not easy music… Continue Reading →

Malhkebre – Revelation (I, Voidhanger)

If it’s French and it’s black metal then it is bound to be strange, weird or even plain bizarre and whilst not as bizarre as some French black metal beasts out there it’s close enough to bamboozle the listener with… Continue Reading →

Von – Dark Gods: Seven Billion Slaves (Von Records)

Venien is the warped mind behind the schizoid derangement called Von. With releases spanning the last two decades using various permutations of the words, satanic, blood and angel this album sees Venien release the first album in his so called… Continue Reading →

Ulcer – Grant Us Death (Pulverised Records)

Ulcer is a Polish sextet featuring members who have seen action in numerous bands from the depths of that country’s extreme metal scene. With stylish cover art and an improved logo on this, their second album, you could be forgiven… Continue Reading →

8th Sin – Cosmogenesis (Soulseller)

Apparently this album has taken eight years too get to this stage, due too various members touring duties and such, and completes the third part of a trilogy with which I have no previous acquaintance. So starting from the top… Continue Reading →

King Fear – S/T (Quality Steel Records)

Despite the fact I have always found Shakespeare about as appealing as a holiday in Ethiopia, a misreading of this band name automatically drew word associations to a similarly titled play. This duo is based in Hamburg according to their… Continue Reading →

Goatpsalm – Erset La Tari (Aesthetic Death)

I would say here is something new and different from Aesthetic Death but frankly everything we get from this label is different and the acts they sign are all quite unique and at times unclassifiable. With Goatpsalm we take a… Continue Reading →
