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
Lento – Fourth (Consouling Sounds)

Lento – Fourth (Consouling Sounds)

Thunderously industrial sounds resonate. An alarm is going. I think Lento are telling us that they’re very heavy. This band from Rome promises us a mesmerising, apocalyptic and mystical journey with their fourth album. There is no time for breath to be taken. Wave upon.. Read More
(Dolch) – III - Songs of Happiness, Words of Praise (Ván)

(Dolch) – III – Songs of Happiness, Words of Praise (Ván)

Props must be given to German group (Dolch) for managing to keep up an air of mystery in an Internet age. I still haven’t a clue of the name of the artists although they have come out the woodwork a little to perform live, most.. Read More
Lustre – Still Innocence (Nordvis)

Lustre – Still Innocence (Nordvis)

If I’ve read this right, this album is an antidote to the valueless world we live in, and a return to a world of innocence, if such a thing existed of course. The therefore appropriately titled “Still Innocence” is Sweden’s one man project Lustre’s sixth.. Read More
JoDöden - Sittandes i sjön med vatten över huvudet (Nordvis Produktion)

JoDöden – Sittandes i sjön med vatten över huvudet (Nordvis Produktion)

When I came across a site called Depressive Visions, which featured this work, it gave more than a clue what to expect. The gentleman behind this ambient, nature-driven work is from Sweden, and what is evident is that through his music he is sharing his.. Read More
Five The Hierophant – Over Phlegethon – (Dark Essence)

Five The Hierophant – Over Phlegethon – (Dark Essence)

If you’ve ever read some of my inane scribblings, you’ll know I’m not at adverse to firing the occasional barb in the direction of the grim, kvlt mob who like to apply corpse paint and scream, and as such it’s a real surprise that I.. Read More
