Extremity – Extremely Fucking Dead (20 Buck Spin)

Yeah I took one look at band name and title and thought bunch of bloody kids trying to be controversial with rude words and all that. Not the case at all though, you wouldn’t get a starry eyed bunch of young ones turning down the.. Read More

Worm Ouroboros – What Graceless Dawn (Profound Lore)

Apparently this Oakland based trio take their moniker from a 1922 fantasy novel by Eric Rucker Eddison. Give it a look on the web if Norse style high fantasy is your thang. With that in mind the listener may be expecting dragons to be chased.. Read More

Barishi – Blood from the Lion’s Mouth (Season of Mist)

Barishi as a band were completely new to me before I listened to this album, their second full release. In case you’re like me and didn’t know about them, they’re from the USA, and describe their style as “gritty progressive metal” or “dark modern metal”,.. Read More

Vukari – Divination (Bindrune)

Thankfully the old ways will always persist but it seems like ‘post-black metal’ is becoming more and more prolific these days. How do you differentiate between the two? Well for me it’s pretty easy as it is much less about orthodoxy, Satan, frost, fire and.. Read More

Todtgelichter – Rooms (Supreme Chaos Records)

Was 2013’s “Apnoe” a step too far for Todtgelichter? It was quite a departure from their early stuff but three years and a couple of new members later it seems the band have had a little bit of a re-think. Not a UK government style.. Read More

The Black Heart Rebellion – People When You See The Smoke, Do Not Think It Is Fields They’re Burning (9000 Records)

As my last review of 2015 this Belgian act has been around for a while and since their original hardcore/punk roots the band has evolved from those genres into something far more complex with this challenging and epically involved release. Categorising this act is nigh.. Read More

Grift – Syner (Nordvis)

Another Nordvis signing crossing my path, another name new to me. Grift are the vision of Swedish maestro Erik Gärdefors, his now solitary journey into the melancholic regions of blackened and doomed metal. Apparently inspired by the poets and artists of his Swedish homeland this.. Read More

Alda – Passage (Bindrune)

When discussing Cascadian black metal Agalloch, Panopticon and Wolves in the Throne Room are names that are often brought up. Despite the aforementioned acts being the most notorious of the subgenre, there are others just as deserving of same esteem and praise; Alda are one.. Read More

Old Graves – This Ruin Beneath Snowfall (Naturmacht)

Once in a while a release comes along and grabs you, making you sit up and take notice……. This 24 minute, 4 track EP from Canadian one man project Old Graves did exactly that with me, and after several spins, it remains my favourite current.. Read More
