Autokrator – Hammer of Heretics (Krucyator Productions)

Autokrator – Hammer of Heretics (Krucyator Productions)

What’s that racket? Oh yes, it must be the latest Autokrator release and boy have they turned things up a notch or two since last time round. When I say turned things up, of course, I don’t mean the bombastic death metal drone-noise that these.. 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
Hryre – From Mortality to Infinity (Code666)

Hryre – From Mortality to Infinity (Code666)

This atmospheric black metal album draws inspiration from nature and the English countryside, and specifically West Yorkshire whence Hryre come. I use the word “whence” because this is the kind of word that Hryre would use. There’s no plain Yorkshire here but a kind of.. Read More
Atriarch -  An Unending Pathway (Relapse)

Atriarch – An Unending Pathway (Relapse)

I guess if you put Atriarch’s musical philosophy into words it would be “We’re fucked.” At least that’s my impression from this their third album and first for Relapse. This flat, doom riddled expression though is pushed differently enough even from the opening of ‘Entropy’,.. Read More
Seth - The Howling Spirit (Season Of Mist)

Seth – The Howling Spirit (Season Of Mist)

Long running band but first album for seven years, France’s Seth have strangely never crossed my path. I’d have remembered. Odd name that for a black metal band I thought, bearing in mind round my neck of the woods the only people bearing that name.. Read More
Aborym - Dirty (Agonia)

Aborym – Dirty (Agonia)

Aborym have been consistently delivering the goods for a surprisingly long time now, haven’t they? It only really struck me when coming to write this review, that it was 2001 when I first had my introduction to the band with their 2nd album ‘Fire Walk.. Read More
Melencolia Estatica – Hel (Temple Of Tortuous)

Melencolia Estatica – Hel (Temple Of Tortuous)

Within three minutes of the start of Hel, the third full length release from Italy’s Melencolia Estatica its pretty clear that the multi-instrumentalist behind it, a lady named Climaxia, isn’t going to make things easy on the listener. Obligatory tolling-bell-followed-by-wall-of-riff aside this six movement piece.. Read More
Hesper Payne / Sabazius - Under The Alum Shale (Loathsome Unclean Music)

Hesper Payne / Sabazius – Under The Alum Shale (Loathsome Unclean Music)

Two bands, two tracks and 65 minutes of music! This is what we have from two of the UK’s stygian doom clad Lovecraft worshippers. This is a tribute to the Old Ones, embracing the mythos and the madness in musical form. One look at the.. Read More
Agruss – Morok (Code666)

Agruss – Morok (Code666)

Occasionally a band seems to simply arrive. No birth pains, no demos shouted about on the Interether, no biography in the usual databases; just that sickening crunch as your skull and your psyche break under the first inexplicable encounter. Yeah, Ukrainian sextet Agruss caught me.. Read More
