Witchcraft – Black Metal (Nuclear Blast)

Okay folks, I have to admit, the editor of this esteemed site put out a review list, and as I skimmed through it after a night shift of overtime I saw the words “Black Metal” and didn’t probe further, immediately,… Continue Reading →

Wolcensmen – Though the Ether, Live Stream 12/4/20

Wolcensmen were due to be playing at the Indie Recordings Label Night as a precursor to this year’s Inferno Metal Festival but world events have of course laid those plans to rest. The festival will return next Easter and by… Continue Reading →

Osi And The Jupiter – Nordlige Rúnaskog (Eisenwald)

A band’s name is its shop window, their one opportunity to create that all important first impression and the name may well determine whether someone actually gives them a listen or simply skips past them. As such, it is important… Continue Reading →

Chelsea Wolfe – Birth of Violence (Sargent House)

Winterfylleth, Meus, Wolcensmen – London St Pancras Old Church 24/9/18

It’s not often we get an invite to church, certainly not from a band known (mainly) for playing black metal. Winterfylleth are not about any form of satanic shtick though and as latest acoustic album The Hallowing Of Heirdom has… Continue Reading →

Winterfylleth – The Hallowing Of Heirdom (Candlelight)

This album is one of those conundrums, a work that initially is both unexpected and yet such an obvious one too when just a moment of thought is given to it. But still, again, somehow surprising that they actually went… Continue Reading →

Ulvesang – The Hunt (Nordvis)

First expecting a Danish band, I was quite surprised that Ulvesang (Danish for Wolves Song) are apparently from Canada. After a self-titled debut album in 2015, the band has moved on to Nordvis for its successor, called “The Hunt”. Alex… Continue Reading →

Spectrale – Triangle (Ladlo Productions)

Firstly here the album title is actually a symbol of a triangle so just get that in your head and think about going through that shape in the Play School Window (showing my age here). Secondly, well this album is… Continue Reading →
