Bâ’a – Deus Qui Non Mentitur (Osmose)

Sheepishly, I must confess ignorance to the musical activities of Anorexia Nervosa alumni since their seemingly permanent hiatus over a decade ago. It turns out that vocalist RMS Hreidmar (after giving said band the chop and causing the hiatus) has… Continue Reading →

Ævangelist – Nightmarecatcher (Hell’s Headbangers)

If you’ve missed out on all the drama that has been plaguing Ævangelist, it follows pretty much the same pattern as Batushka – band splits, both parties claim to be the original, blah, blah, blah, no one really cares. On… Continue Reading →

OPHE – Litteras Ad Tristia Maestrum Solitude (My Kingdom Music)

Not much to go on here, but I did establish that OPHE is a one man avant-garde black metal outfit, and the one man likes people like DHG, Blut aus Nord, Manes and Anorexia Nervosa. So that’s good. As for… Continue Reading →

Yhdarl – Loss (I, Voidhanger Records)

Yhdarl’s claim to fame is their ability to crush “all music boundaries between suicidal, depressive, doom, noise and drone black metal”. With a link to Cult of Erinyes and a host of other bands, “Loss” is the Franco-Belgian duo’s eighth… Continue Reading →

Doctor Livingstone – Triumphus Haeretici (Osmose)

There’s more than a whiff of lunacy within the French extreme music scene. If you look at bands like Anorexia Nervosa, Carnival In Coal, Pensees Nocturnes & The CNK, just to name a few, they are all a sandwich short… Continue Reading →

Au Champ des Morts – Dans la Joie (Debemur Morti)

In 2007 Anorexia Nervosa came to an end precipitated by the departure if RMS Hreidmarr who has chosen to concentrate on the less symphonic more electronic The CNK.  Seven years later Stephane Bayle picked up his guitar again and gathered… Continue Reading →

Herrschaft – Les 12 Vertiges (Code 666)

I expected nothing less than twelve monstrously dark electronic metal tracks from this band, who could broadly be seen as a French equivalent of Wumpscut. Maybe they are, maybe they’re not that but they do have a cult status and… Continue Reading →

Screaming Savior – Infinity (Metal Hell Records)

Firstly being advocate of the English language it annoys the hell out of me when I see words like saviour, colour etc spelt without the ‘u’; crikey it really annoys me in fact. Be that as it may I will… Continue Reading →

Saille – Ritu (Code666 Records)

Symphonic black metal is not necessarily something that gets me out of bed in the morning or even at any other hour of these godforsaken days. Far far too much dross clogs up the entire sub-genre that really needs a… Continue Reading →

Interview – Carach Angren

  Carach Angren from The Netherlands are more than just a black metal band, adding extravagantly classical sounds to create a turbulence which reflects grotesque psychological themes and scenes of death. The latest of these works, capturing “seven visions of… Continue Reading →

Mystical Fullmoon – Scoring a Liminal Phase (ten strategies for post modern mysticism) (self-released)

It’s clear from the grandiose title and claims of this Italian band that this was not going to be an ordinary work. Developed over 15 years and lasting 74 minutes, there’s plenty of time for the promised “iconoclastic fury of… Continue Reading →
