Tantal – Ruin (Mazzar Records)

Tantal – Ruin (Mazzar Records)

So this new Tantal album came my way and as I always like to do before I embark on a review, I read what the label/promotions agency have to say about the band. What instantly intrigued (and amused) me about it is that the comparisons.. Read More

Deadly Carnage – Through The Void, Above The Suns ( A Sad Sadness Song)

I have reviewed this Italian bands last two full lengths the last one of which was released in 2014. The band has been relatively quiet since then with only a two track EP called “Chasm” showing up in 2016 that continued the bands post black.. Read More

Godthrymm – A Grand Reclamation (Transcending Records)

Supergroups aren’t a new idea, but are they always a good idea? A vast number of highly creative individuals crammed into one space with influences and styles running amok may sound like a recipe for success but it can potentially end in disaster. That being.. Read More

Oceans Of Slumber – The Banished Heart (Century Media)

Pretty much exactly 2 years and 2 days since the release of their second album, Houston based Oceans Of Slumber have worked hard to get their third album completed, persevering through internal and family struggles to get it all done. The piano isn’t just used.. Read More

Daniel Cavanagh – Monochrome (K-Scope)

Daniel Cavanagh – Monochrome (K-Scope)

This is an artist who should need no introduction and as you should well know Daniel Cavanagh is a founding father of UK doom, death, atmospheric, emotive band (call em what you will as they have changed over the decades) Anathema. The Optimist is an.. Read More
Ball Noir - Last Serenades (S/R)

Ball Noir – Last Serenades (S/R)

A little bit of something different for you. Ball Noir are a Dutch dark folk-metal band, though it’s fair to say that they’re rather more influenced by the golden periods of bands such as our very own My Dying Bride and Anathema than, say, Skyclad... Read More
The Prophecy – Origins (Ascension Music)

The Prophecy – Origins (Ascension Music)

The Prophecy eh, nobody foretold their return. Well I was surprised at any rate until I luckily found their new album Origins nestling in my junk folder among all the others needy for review. Naturally I grabbed it straight away as the Halifax doom crew.. Read More

Download Festival 2017 – Donington Park 11/6/17

Sunday 11th June 2017 review only. Download is always a marmite festival for me, it either has loads on offer to draw my interest, or it is a weekend, I will happily swerve at a blink of an eye. While this year has intermittent gems.. Read More

The Eden House – Songs For The Broken Ones (Jungle)

We are used to reviewing the good, the bad and the downright ugly around these parts but sometimes it’s nice to get something that is simply drop dead gorgeous and beautiful and that is exactly where The Eden House fit in. It’s been a while.. Read More
Anathema – The Optimist (KScope)

Anathema – The Optimist (KScope)

All hail optimism? Well in times of negativity it’s something that seems rare but do not despair entirely as although musically Anathema, as is well documented, are a long way from musical origins, narratively their lyrical themes are still to a certain point quite crestfallen... Read More
Vallenfyre – Fear Those Who Fear Him (Century Media)

Vallenfyre – Fear Those Who Fear Him (Century Media)

Crust, death, doom, dirt fans rejoice Yorkshire’s finest purveyors of filth Vallenfyre are back with album number three. Really this lot should need no introduction at all. Spearheaded by Gregor Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) and Hamish Glencross (ex My Dying Bride) this reminds us of the.. Read More
