Nagaarum – Apples (Aesthetic Death)

Nagaarum – Apples (Aesthetic Death)

The whole concept of this is unusual. This album is a tribute to three scientists – Halley, Hooke and Newton, hence the “Apples” presumably and their relevance of the discovery of gravity. It is explained further that these scientists operated in a framework of philosophical.. Read More
From The Bogs Of Aughiska - Mineral Bearing Veins (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

From The Bogs Of Aughiska – Mineral Bearing Veins (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

It has been a good long while since the last full length by this tremendous Irish band, 2013’s ‘Roots Of This Earth Within My Blood’ and really their only recorded output in between was the odd but excellent ‘Fenian Ram’ single (albeit seventeen minutes of.. Read More
Trautonist – Ember (Wolves And Vibrancy Records / Pest Productions)

Trautonist – Ember (Wolves And Vibrancy Records / Pest Productions)

Very rarely do I get an actual vinyl to review these days as Trautonist has seen fit to send their second album as a vinyl copy, and a gold vinyl at that too. The German trio has a self-titled debut that was a solid post-black.. Read More
The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices feat. Lisa Gerrard – BooCheMish (Prophecy)

The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices feat. Lisa Gerrard – BooCheMish (Prophecy)

Now, this is really something completely different. Something we probably haven’t covered here yet and you most likely haven’t come across so far. This is neither dark folk nor neo folk, nothing related to a Northern tradition, this is pretty much traditional folk – traditional.. Read More
Urfaust – The Constellatory Practice (Van)

Urfaust – The Constellatory Practice (Van)

You could probably argue that almost all genres of Metal are endlessly dynamic and come with a massive array of sub-genre tags, which is probably what makes the genre as a whole so enticing. However if we are looking for the most diverse of sub-genres.. Read More
Interview - Mortiis

Interview – Mortiis

  To coincide with the release of the new version of his Secrets Of My Kingdom book, Ave Noctum had the chance to catch a few words with Håvard Ellefsen, aka Mortiis himself, and asked about Era 1, revisiting old haunts and the future. What.. Read More
Onirism – Falling Moon (Naturmacht)

Onirism – Falling Moon (Naturmacht)

With moons and skies and stars and cosmic whales featuring in the titles, there’s more than a suggestion of a celestial journey about this album. Vrath, the person at the centre of this symphonic ambient black metal project from France, has been busy with two.. Read More
Ulvesang – The Hunt (Nordvis)

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 Boyd and Ana Dujakovic are.. Read More
Zeresh - Sigh for Sigh (999 Cuts)

Zeresh – Sigh for Sigh (999 Cuts)

Zeresh is a project from Tamar Singer, one half of Israel’s folk noir duo Cruel Wonders, whose ‘Gentle Doom’ album was released last year. An enchanting, but claustrophobic listen, ‘Gentle Doom’ had its folk sensibilities very much to the fore, but with Zeresh, Tamar takes.. Read More
Malvento – Pneuma (Third I Rex)

Malvento – Pneuma (Third I Rex)

I should feel guilty for never coming across Malvento in their 20 odd years of existence but then again there are many “cult Italian” acts so shrouded in obscurity within the underground that there are no shortage of them to discover. Malvento have been around.. Read More
Nortt – Endelight (Avantgarde Music)

Nortt – Endelight (Avantgarde Music)

It seems that this year there has been no shortage of kvlt edge-lords thinking it is clever releasing albums over the festering period. It’s not like most of them will find their way into the few remaining record shops around so guess there’s nothing stopping.. Read More
