Arkheth - 12 Winter Moons Comes The Witches Brew (Transcending Obscurity)

Arkheth – 12 Winter Moons Comes The Witches Brew (Transcending Obscurity)

Arkheth is not the most productive band in the world. Having released its debut album in 2003 and a successor in 2010, they took another eight years to come up with “12 Winter Moons Comes The Witches Brew”. The new album marks a new era.. Read More
Rise of Avernus - Eigengrau (Code666 Records)

Rise of Avernus – Eigengrau (Code666 Records)

I would never had said that Rise of Avernus were Australian from the titles of their previous album or EPs, however that fact certainly doesn’t detract the quality of the dark & broody musicianship coming from those sunny climes. The album opens with a rather.. Read More
Greytomb – Monumental Microcosm (Transcending Obscurity)

Greytomb – Monumental Microcosm (Transcending Obscurity)

This Australian band’s debut in 2016, “A Perpetual Descent”, plunged listeners into a quagmire of atmospheric murky blackened horror linking outright riffing malfeasance with dramatic soundscapes that surrounded the songs on multiple levels. Not much has changed generally as the band releases an EP of.. Read More
Ne Obliviscaris – Urn (Season of Mist)

Ne Obliviscaris – Urn (Season of Mist)

Ne Obliviscaris have returned with their 3rd full length release, and the Australian 5 piece have really surpassed themselves with this one. The bands name officially translates from Latin to ‘forget not’, and no one will surely forget them when they are releasing absolute behemoths.. Read More
Mekigah - Autexousious (Aesthetic Death)

Mekigah – Autexousious (Aesthetic Death)

There’s some solid stuff coming out on label Aesthetic Death whether it’s the sludgy, blackened doom of Ketch or the equally highly recommended quirky black metal of Lashblood. Indeed, it’s a label that’s becoming known for its appreciation of the avant-garde. That in itself is.. Read More
King Parrot – Ugly Produce (Agonia)

King Parrot – Ugly Produce (Agonia)

Could they keep up the quality? “Bite Your Head Off” did exactly that then two years ago “Dead Set” showed that these Melbourne boys are certainly not here just to fuck spiders. So there was some trepidation when I hit play on Ugly Produce their.. Read More
Nocturnes Mist – Diabolical Baptism (Séance Records)

Nocturnes Mist – Diabolical Baptism (Séance Records)

Extreme, raw, intricate, malevolent, these are just a few adjectives I could use to describe the latest release from Nocturnes Mist. “Diabolical Baptism” is the 4th full length release by this sextet from Australia, amidst a barrage of demos and EP’s. Opening track “Barbs of.. Read More
Thy Art Is Murder – Dear Desolation (Nuclear Blast)

Thy Art Is Murder – Dear Desolation (Nuclear Blast)

Of late the major players within the deathcore scene have been branching out somewhat and have been testing the water with more ambitious song writing that has had a mixed reception within the media and from fans alike, with Carnifex, Whitechapel and Suicide Silence all.. Read More
Sleepmakeswaves – Made of Breath Only (Pelagic)

Sleepmakeswaves – Made of Breath Only (Pelagic)

It’s a strange thing when an intro is followed by what seems to be another intro. This is Australian post rock band Sleepmakeswaves, and this is their third album. Admittedly the second intro, an instrumental called “Worlds Away” livens up to the extent that there.. Read More
Norse - The Divine Light of a New Sun (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Norse – The Divine Light of a New Sun (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Black metal is much like a living organism, staying true to its roots while constantly evolving and developing, and many modern day black metal outfits have little in common with the forefathers of this genre. However, these days it is rare to discover a band.. Read More
Midnight Odyssey - Silhouettes Of Stars (I Voidhanger)

Midnight Odyssey – Silhouettes Of Stars (I Voidhanger)

I missed the 2015 Shards Of Silver Fate album by Midnight Odyssey, the cosmic/ambient black metal project that Australian auteur Dis Pater chooses to express himself through; a situation I am going to have to correct. You see just before this appeared on the review.. Read More
Mammoth Mammoth - Mount the Mountain (Napalm Records)

Mammoth Mammoth – Mount the Mountain (Napalm Records)

If you’ve ever caught Mammoth Mammoth in the past, whether by playing their records or attending a gig, you know that they have a pretty tried and true formula, which is why you will be massively surprised by their new direction. Eschewing hard rocking riffs.. Read More
