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
Myrkur – Mareidt (Relapse)

Myrkur – Mareidt (Relapse)

Denmark’s Amalie Bruun returns with her solo project, Myrkur, for the follow-up to 2015’s debut album ‘M’. Sophomore effort, ‘Mareidt’ is a different beast entirely when compared with its predecessor. ‘M’ combined the raw, masculine energy of second-wave black metal, with delicate, ethereal femininity, with..

Reverorum ib Malacht - Ter Agios Numini (The Ajna Offensive)

Reverorum ib Malacht – Ter Agios Numini (The Ajna Offensive)

This band from Sweden started out in 2005 with the intriguingly titled demo “What do You Think of the Old God, We Call Him Judas?”, since then a further two demos and three albums of black ambience including this one have been added. The album.. Read More
MRTVI – Negative Atonal Dissonance (Transcending Obscurity)

MRTVI – Negative Atonal Dissonance (Transcending Obscurity)

I’m always a bit suspicious of albums, which claim to be ground-breaking. In this case it’s a “ground-breaking album that defies conventions and bends perceptions. A twisted interpretation of black metal laced with ambient textures and unpredictable experimentation turns the professed genre on its head”... Read More
The Soundbyte – Solitary IV (Temple of Torturous)

The Soundbyte – Solitary IV (Temple of Torturous)

Experimentation and avant-garde metal is what’s promised on this album by The Soundbyte, a project from Trond Engum out of Trondheim in Norway. What I heard at first were ambient sounds and the depiction of a bleak space. The symphony is not sharp but it.. Read More
Shibalba – Psychostasis – Death of Khat (Agonia Records)

Shibalba – Psychostasis – Death of Khat (Agonia Records)

Shibalba’s ambient and meditative dark trance is, in their words, intended to “guide the subconscious of the individual to dream beyond the skin of matter & to dream in ecstasy and exult”. Overtly inspired by the East, there are Tibetan horns and singing bowls and.. Read More
Wapentake – Murmurations (S/R)

Wapentake – Murmurations (S/R)

Yes it is an odd word and apparently means “(in the UK) a subdivision of certain northern and midland English counties, corresponding to a hundred in other counties.” As far as musical origins are concerned 1st port of call is Hampshire and a now defunct.. Read More
