Hallatar - No Stars Upon The Bridge (Svart)

Hallatar – No Stars Upon The Bridge (Svart)

After the tragic death of Aleah Starbridge on the 18th of April 2016 and the posthumous release of the Trees of Eternity début in November that year, guitarist Juha Raivio was left with the writings, lyrics, and poems of his beloved to keep safe. As.. Read More
None – S/T (Hypnotic Dirge)

None – S/T (Hypnotic Dirge)

It’s probably not surprising that there is little in the way of information available about a band called None. They don’t pop up in the normal places you would try and gather facts about everything from band members to releases, inside leg measurements and favourite.. Read More
Soothsayer – At This Great Depth (Transcending Obscurity)

Soothsayer – At This Great Depth (Transcending Obscurity)

Soothsayer. Great name for a band, actually, and a quick furtle around the Metal Archives pages shows that there has only been one before, a Canadian outfit. This Soothsayer are in fact from Ireland, and are described by their record label as “Atmospheric Doom Metal”... Read More
Trees of Eternity - Hour of the Nightingale (Svart)

Trees of Eternity – Hour of the Nightingale (Svart)

What really sucks about this album is that for South African born vocalist Aleah Starbridge, its release is posthumous. She and Swallow The Sun guitarist Juha Raivio created Trees of Eternity as an acoustic collaboration, but it pretty soon morphed into more with the inclusion.. Read More
Raspail – Dirge (Sick Man Getting Sick)

Raspail – Dirge (Sick Man Getting Sick)

Raspail is a very interesting project. Formed by former members of Novembre, Klimt 1918, Psychotic Despair and Room with a View, they describe “Dirge” pictorially and vividly: “the old rural landscape all around Rome, cherished by the Romantic poets, with its imposing ruins covered in.. Read More
Hanging Garden – Hereafter (Lifeforce)

Hanging Garden – Hereafter (Lifeforce)

Well, this new EP is a bit of fun…OK, maybe not “fun”, that’s too up-beat for a Dark Gothic Doom Metal band named Hanging Garden…so let’s plump for engaging shall we? Last year’s “Blackout/Whiteout” opus was released only last year (reviewed elsewhere on Ave Noctum.. Read More
Throes Of Dawn - Our Voices Shall Remain (Argonauta Records)

Throes Of Dawn – Our Voices Shall Remain (Argonauta Records)

Ah Finland, nobody does Dark Metal quite like Finland. Nobody seems to cram in so much atmosphere, melancholy and lets face it, down-right despondency as the Fins manage. And I love them for it. Throes Of Despondency…sorry…Dawn like to supplement their Dark with words like.. Read More
Katatonia - The Fall Of Hearts (Peaceville)

Katatonia – The Fall Of Hearts (Peaceville)

I have followed Sweden’s Katatonia religiously for over two decades and they have given me some of the most brilliant memories within music during that time either with landmark releases or just awe inspiring live performances whether electric or acoustic. Each album Katatonia has released.. Read More
Soul Dissolution – Pale Distant Light (Throats Productions)

Soul Dissolution – Pale Distant Light (Throats Productions)

This light might be pale and somewhat bleak but it’s not without warm shades to go with it. Soul Dissolution play a form of melancholic post black metal and come from Belgium. They are a duo of Jabawock and Acharan who come from a background.. Read More
The Foreshadowing - Seven Heads Ten Horns (Cyclone Empire)

The Foreshadowing – Seven Heads Ten Horns (Cyclone Empire)

“Melancholic Gothic Doom Metal”. Never a description to warm the old cockles is it? In itself it’s a genre that can contain many variables…OK, it’s a fair guess it will be sparse on the optimistic/joyous/fun/hopeful side of things (sounds like how I remember my History.. Read More
