Morte Lune – Temple of Flesh (Purity through Fire)

From Cumbria comes black metal and dark ambience. This is the band’s first EP, after the previous release of a demo and participation in a split called “Cumbrian Metal Part 1”. There is pedigree in the trio, with representation in… Continue Reading →

The Deathtrip – Demon Solar Temple (Svart)

Life for me right now is great and of the many aspects that are so great one would be my recent indulgence with the occult. I’ve always been fascinated by ancient religions and occult teachings. I mean if you’re into… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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,… Continue Reading →
