Svard – The Rift (Argonauta Records)

Svard is a project new to this locked down world. The band consists of Tim Nedergard and Bjorn Petterson from Sweden’s proggy deathsters In Mourning who offer guitars and vocals. They recruited ex bandmate and bassist Pierre Stam and reached… Continue Reading →

Solothus – Realm Of Ash And Blood (20 Buck Spin)

Finnish doom, eh? Well doom death bordering on the funereal anyway. ‘Father Of Sickness’ crawls out of the blocks like a slightly more animated Unholy with a kind of sense of that first Paradise Lost album in the eerie and… Continue Reading →

Ennui – End Of The Circle (Non Serviam Records)

I remember my first experience with Funeral Doom Metal, along one of my many YouTube crusades I hit the wall of slow paced fury that is Ahab, it’s safe to say that my mind was blown. From here I have… Continue Reading →

Fading Bliss – Journeys In Solitude (Malpermesita Records)

With titles like the above it would be a fairly safe bet that we would be in funeral doom territory with this Belgian group, and indeed that is the case. Four tracks and around forty five minutes: Ocean, Mountain, A… Continue Reading →

Eye Of Solitude / Marche Funèbre – Split (Hypnotic Dirge)

Two well respected bands in extreme doom circles go at it together for this split release, both with one track each. Due to the genre as you would expect that does not mean a shortage of material in any respect… Continue Reading →

Hamferð – Támsins likam (Metal Blade)

Hamferð are a Faroese doom band, a sextet which means with all the other bands and artists currently sailing forth from those tiny islands most of the population is in a band. Actually judging from what I’ve read of them,… Continue Reading →

Bell Witch – Mirror Reaper (Profound Lore)

Review a one track 83 minute doom track they said. It will be good for you and fun they said. Well actually they didn’t but curiosity got the better of me (and you know what they bloody well said about… Continue Reading →

Vin de Tria Mix – Palimpsests (Hypnotic Dirge)

We last heard from this strangely entitled Ukrainian lot when they dropped debut album ‘Once Hidden From Sight’ back in 2013. It didn’t go down remarkably well and so this one was approached with a certain amount of trepidation especially… Continue Reading →

Interview – Alunah

For over 10 years, since first coming together in the English Midlands in 2006, Alunah have trafficked in a blend of the earthly and the unearthly.  2017 sees the band releasing their highly anticipated fourth album Solennial in partnership with… Continue Reading →
