Ghostbound – All is Phantom (ATMF)

Ghostbound – All is Phantom (ATMF)

Originally conceived as a solo project by Brooklyn-based musician/actor (actor?) Alec Head to deliver themes of loss, grief and isolation via the medium of atmospheric black metal, Ghostbound has since expanded into a ‘full’ band and now presents the world with their debut full-length ‘All..

Khôrada – Salt (Prophecy Productions)

As a long term fan boy of atmospheric/post black metal Goliath, Agalloch I was bitterly disappointed to hear the news that they had disbanded in 2016. The internet was soon rife with rumours of new bands and when I heard that the majority of the.. Read More

Finnr’s Cane – Elegy (Prophecy Productions)

What is about North America and atmospheric black(ish) metal? Wolves in the Throne Room, Agalloch, Panopticon are just a few examples of masters of this delicate art, and Canada’s Finnr’s Cave deserve to be held in the same high regard. Their debut from 2010 ‘Wanderlust’.. Read More

Hyrgal – Serpentine (Ladlo Productions)

Having been around for ten years this French act has released only one split during that time and within their ranks they have an ex-member of Svart Crown, namely Clément Flandrois who does vocals and guitar on this, the band’s debut full length. An elongated.. Read More

Raven Throne – I Miortvym Snicca Zolak (Non Serviam)

Belarus. Probably best known for its political system, this country has so much more to offer. Great cities, a beautiful countryside, massive potato consumption, amazing sausages and a rich cultural tradition, mainly in classical music, opera and ballet. When it comes to metal, Belarus is..

Harakiri For The Sky – Arson (Art Of Propaganda)

Harakiri For The Sky – Arson (Art Of Propaganda)

Harakiri For The Sky are one of those rare bands that, if they didn’t exist, someone would need to invent them. The band, fast becoming an institution, is the perfect blend of finely distilled post-hardcore-post-black-metal that seems to fill a huge space at the crossroads.. Read More
Greytomb – Monumental Microcosm (Transcending Obscurity)

Greytomb – Monumental Microcosm (Transcending Obscurity)

This Australian band’s debut in 2016, “A Perpetual Descent”, plunged listeners into a quagmire of atmospheric murky blackened horror linking outright riffing malfeasance with dramatic soundscapes that surrounded the songs on multiple levels. Not much has changed generally as the band releases an EP of.. Read More
Seventh Genocide – Toward Akina (Third I Rex)

Seventh Genocide – Toward Akina (Third I Rex)

Black metal, more than any other genre, has produced some of the finest hybridisations of sub-genres resulting in some of the most intelligent, beguiling and intrinsically fascinating albums. I am very much of the school that the setting and mood is critical for listening to.. Read More
Extremity – Extremely Fucking Dead (20 Buck Spin)

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)

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 – 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)

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
