Azziard – Metempsychose (Malpermesita Records)

Azziard – Metempsychose (Malpermesita Records)

Pulling this CD out of its wrapping I remembered the band name and that this deathly black troop from France had struck me as slightly bonkers on last album ‘Vesanie’ in 2014. At the time they had been in the midst of exploring the not.. Read More

Albums Of The Year 2017

PETE WOODS (EDITOR): TOP 20 As others will re-iterate it’s been a crazy year for good music releases and anyone who tells you otherwise is quite frankly a fool. The biggest problem has been keeping up with it all and admittedly we are probably all.. Read More
Aosoth – V: The Inside Scriptures (Agonia)

Aosoth – V: The Inside Scriptures (Agonia)

Has it really been four years since the last Aosoth full-length (IV: Arrow In Heart)? Man, time flies. It seems like only the other day that that record landed and further cemented Aosoth’s position as being one of the more focussed, reliable and downright convincing.. Read More
Caïnan Dawn - F.O.H.A.T. (Osmose)

Caïnan Dawn – F.O.H.A.T. (Osmose)

Caïnan Dawn’s last opus hit me like a lorry load of corpse paint. Rumbling, muscular black metal with a mission to drown you in wave upon wave of bass-heavy sound that requires nothing more of you than to stop, listen and give yourself up to.. Read More
Merrimack – Omegaphilia (Season Of Mist)

Merrimack – Omegaphilia (Season Of Mist)

I bought this French bands 2012 release “The Acausal Mass” on a whim and was very pleased that my gamble paid off as it was a fine display of vehement black metal done in a way that only the French can do. Stepping forward five.. Read More
Aum - Om Ah Hum Vajra Guru Padma Siddhi Hum (Iron Bonehead Productions)

Aum – Om Ah Hum Vajra Guru Padma Siddhi Hum (Iron Bonehead Productions)

If you follow labels like I do then you’ll be well aware that anything coming out from Iron Bonehead is usually some of the filthiest diabolical music on the planet and here they do it again with the mysterious and secretive French band Aum, whose.. Read More
Narvik – Ascension To Apotheosis (Folter Records)

Narvik – Ascension To Apotheosis (Folter Records)

Narvik is a place in Norway and these Germans adopted the name in memory of musician Robert Burås of rock band Madrugada who lived and died there, taken far too young at the age of 31. His guitar work which I have not heard is.. Read More
VI – De Praestigiis Angelorum (Agonia)

VI – De Praestigiis Angelorum (Agonia)

Black metal has a cold, pernicious heart and, if my blood soaked ears and ruptured brain cells are anything to go by, I may just have strayed too close to its beating core. Imagine Aosoth on speed – three of its current and former members.. Read More
The Order of Apollyon – The Sword and The Dagger (Listenable)

The Order of Apollyon – The Sword and The Dagger (Listenable)

Five years since their debut release, 2015 sees the 2nd album of The Order of Apollyon eventually rear its gnarly head. After a huge upheaval in line-up (co-founder Dan Wilding is now with Carcass, former Akercocke man Peter Benjamin has gone, as has ex-Cradle of.. Read More
Malhkebre - Revelation (I, Voidhanger)

Malhkebre – Revelation (I, Voidhanger)

If it’s French and it’s black metal then it is bound to be strange, weird or even plain bizarre and whilst not as bizarre as some French black metal beasts out there it’s close enough to bamboozle the listener with an onslaught of schizophrenic arrangements.. Read More
Temple of Baal – Verses of Fire (Agonia)

Temple of Baal – Verses of Fire (Agonia)

Temple of Baal have spent years limbering up with split releases and the occasional full-length. Years of picking up fans and a few decent reviews here and there. Probably sweat, almost certainly blood although, I suspect, not very many tears: unless you are the poor.. Read More
