Damim – A Fine Game Of Nil (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Can I say this is the debut by Damim to make it sound like I’m here, in at the beginning? Nah, ’tis their third after a slight name shift from Dam (I assume for reasons of clashes, lineup rejig or… Continue Reading →

Sathamel – Horror Vacui (S/R)

Once more something stirs in what I am now convinced is a remarkable UKBM scene. It seems to be growing particularly strong in Wales and the North or England at the moment and it’s the latter from where black/death outfit… Continue Reading →

Pernicion – Seek What They Sought (Osmose)

A five track EP for you this time, courtesy of a two-man terror team of British reprobates. Anil Carrier, known probably best for his time as the live drum kit destroyer in Anaal Nathrakh, and Dan Benton on Vocals. It… Continue Reading →

The Antichrist Imperium – Vol. II: Every Tongue Shall Praise Satan (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Back in 2015, blast-master David Gray unleashed ‘The Antichrist Imperium’ with former Akercocke guitarist Matt Wilcock. An awesome piece of avant-garde death/black metal utilizing the remnants of what would have been Ak’s 6th album. But now that the mighty Akercocke… Continue Reading →

Voices – Frightened (Candlelight)

Well I have listened to this album every day for the last 10 or so. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining and it hasn’t been a chore in the slightest. It’s just that a work of this breadth and… Continue Reading →

Akercocke, Hecate Enthroned & Kill For Company – London Underworld 28/10/17

Camden seems even madder tonight, for some reason everyone thinks it’s Halloween and needs to be dressed like clowns, evil ones included. There’s a queue outside the fancy dress shop stretching down the street and everywhere is packed. Seeking sanctuary… Continue Reading →

Akercocke – Renaissance In Extremis (Peaceville Records)

Akercocke… It’s good to have you back. …what happened? You didn’t write, you didn’t phone… I think it’s fair to say that Akercocke have been one of the most loved, cherished and respected extreme metal bands that this country has… Continue Reading →

The Ruins of Beverast – Exuvia (Van)

Back in January of this year I was bowled over by the psychedelic cosmos of Takitum Tootem the E.P. Now here is its big sister/brother all grown up but still floating in space but this time within Earth’s atmosphere. More… Continue Reading →

Akercocke, Fen, The Infernal Sea, Sathamel Leeds, Belgrave Music Hall 7/4/17

With not being able to attend the Ritual Festival after this pre fest warm up show due to a gig clash with Taake in Manchester, this was the next best thing as the hyper busy venue sports a traditional long… Continue Reading →

This Is Endless – Inherit The Sin (S/R)

There’s a time to listen to wafty shit, you know the stuff… something symphonic, something with keyboards, windy forest sound effects and probably a warbly singer whining on about whatever issue they’ve taken up on someone else’s behalf that day…. Continue Reading →

Belligerent Intent – The Crucifire (S/R)

From Melbourne, Australia, Belligerent Intent are a pummelling death metal band with a few black metal interludes included for a sense of the dark side. Now including ex-Bezerker/Akercocke guitarist Matt Wilcock, the level of technical ability is pretty special, even… Continue Reading →

Speed Kills – Volume VII (Music for Nations)

It’s a welcome return for this legendary record label, in the late 80’s I used to religiously buy anything on this label (and sub-label Under One Flag) simply because the quality was pretty damn good, I mean they did have… Continue Reading →
