Ancient Moon – Benedictus Diabolica, Gloria Patri (Iron Bonehead)

Druadan Forest – Dismal Spells From The Dragonrealm (Werewolf)

So labelling this ‘dungeon synth’, according to the PR, is ‘revisionist ‘ and sells short the man’s work. Well only is you think dungeon synth is something to be sneered at, and I most certainly do not think that. Dungeon… Continue Reading →

MMMD – Egoismo (Antifrost)

ówt krì – Ximenes (S/R)

It’s always a pleasure to hear from the Finnish soundmeister Kenneth Kovasin a.k.a. ówt krì. Both “New Seed” and “Pilgrimage” are thought-provoking and mind-opening in a way that we’re allowed to develop our own thoughts without any form of prescription… Continue Reading →
