Tristwood – Blackcrowned Majesty (S/R)

I gotta say I had never heard of Tristwood. These Austrian Industrial Black metalheads have flown under my radar since their inception at the start of the Millennium. There has been a bit of to and fro for them but… Continue Reading →

Perchta – Ufång (Prophecy)

Perchta, founded as recently as 2017, are from Tyrol, Austria, and named after a figure from Germanic folklore, also considered a goddess in Alpine paganism. Frau Perchta was, among other things, the upholder of cultural taboos. She was said to… Continue Reading →

Sortout – Conquer from Within (Dr Music)

“Arise, Sort Out, Overcome” is the motto of this Austrian metalcore band. It sounds rather clichéd, not to mention similar to the booming announcement you hear every day on Britain’s railways: “See it, Say it, Sorted”. To their credit, this… Continue Reading →

Karg – Traktat (Art Of Propaganda)

Karg is an excellent name for a band, especially for a black metal band from Austria. The word “karg” is German and it is old, something that you can simultaneously hear and see. Karg, when referred to a landscape, means… Continue Reading →

Vinsta – Drei Deita (Trollmusic)

While their bio says they started out as a folk band and are now melodic death metal, Vinsta manage to retain their folk roots and blend them into the metal seamlessly using that sound for emphasis rather than as a… Continue Reading →

Edenbridge – Dynamind (Steamhammer/SPV)

I have to admit that I have something of a love hate relationship with symphonic metal. When done well it is absolutely stunning, but if not then it can be mediocre at best and over the years I have swung… Continue Reading →

The Negative Bias – Narcissus Rising (ATMF)

I admire all attempts to evolve black metal – but appreciate that sometimes, the harder you try, the more unblack metal it’s gunna sound. That’s just the way it is. So, for example, there’s a big difference experimenting within the… Continue Reading →

Global Scum – Odium (NRT Records)

Global Scum is the one-man project of Austrian multi-instrumentalist Manuel Harlander and “Odium” is the second release from the project, following on from the highly praised debut offering “Hell Is Home” which came out in the closing stages of 2017…. Continue Reading →

Joyless Euphoria – Dreaming In Ultraviolet (Boersma Records)

As broad a genre as Metal is each and every new avenue explored is often met with ridicule and disgust, it really is a wonder how we have come to have so many genres today. Speaking of modern times this… Continue Reading →

Ellende – Lebensnehmer (AOP Records)

As is our musical nerd sort of way I was as per usual over-analysing things whilst listening to this. As far as sub-genres are concerned we have more than enough as it is but with black metal there could easily… Continue Reading →

Der Blutharsch and the infinite church of the leading Hand – Wish I Weren’t Here (WKN)

Well this has the label tag number 55 on it so that seems to be the number of releases we have reached from Austrian cosmonauts Der B as I shall abbreviate their name to for sanity’s sake. Although I have… Continue Reading →
