Eridu – Lugalbanda (S/R)

Now why German band Eridu should be concerned with the legend of Lugalbanda from the ancient times of Mesopotamia is unclear. Even Rick Wakeman never managed that one. To be fair, the band clearly don’t work in half measures and… Continue Reading →

Sathamel – Horror Vacui (S/R)

Once more something stirs in what I am now convinced is a remarkable UKBM scene. It seems to be growing particularly strong in Wales and the North or England at the moment and it’s the latter from where black/death outfit… Continue Reading →

AntropomorphiA – Merciless Savagery (Metal Blade)

Naked lady on cover and no doubt very cold by the looks of it and plenty more uses of the letter v instead ov f, yep AntropomorphiA are back. It seem like only yesterday since we were discussing Sermon Ov… Continue Reading →

Vltimas – Something Wicked Marches In (Season Of Mist)

Supergroups are a funny thing, I always feel like they go either one of two ways. Either they are a positive collaboration of talented individuals or they are a somewhat manufactured ensemble thrust unwillingly upon the world. I think this… Continue Reading →

Behemoth, At The Gates, Wolves In The Throne Room Manchester Ritz 9/2/19

A perfect storm was created when they announced this show had sold out, but then to also open the doors at 17.30 seems a little crazy, there must be a good reason behind it though, and especially considering the gig… Continue Reading →

Non Serviam The Official Story Of Rotting Christ – Sakis Tolis & Dayal Patterson (Cult Never Dies)

If you are on this site and playing a word association game “Greece” will no doubt be swiftly followed by thoughts of Rotting Christ as much as package holidays. Without doubt, with over three decades of history behind the much… Continue Reading →

Anomalie – Integra (AOP Records)

The scene in Austria seems a little bit incestuous and anyone involved either on album or live with prime exports Harakiri For The Sky seems to be heavily involved in plenty of other projects and a good family tree between… Continue Reading →

The Order Of Apollyon – Moriah (Agonia)

Once upon a time, shortly after being founded by then Aborted frontman BST in 2008, The Order Of Apollyon were rounded out by stalwarts of the British underground. The band then underwent a merry-go-round of musician changes through the release… Continue Reading →

Behemoth – I Loved You at Your Darkest (Nuclear Blast)

No longer as prolific a studio band as they once were, the release of a new Behemoth album is considered a big deal given its scarcity over the past decade. The band are never been far from the public eye… Continue Reading →

Infestus – Thrypsis (Debemur Morti)

I remember the second album ‘Chroniken des Ablebens’ from Infestus back a decade ago in 2008 but our paths do not seem to have crossed since then. The German outfit who have had various past members in their ranks now… Continue Reading →

Blood Of Serpents – Sulphur Sovereign (Non Serviam Records)

Often a sophomore album will be a marginal evolution from what came before. There are notable exceptions where a band tear up the script and start again completely; Darkthrone being an obvious candidate. Blood Of Serpents haven’t exactly thrown away… Continue Reading →

Hegemone – We Disappear (Debemur Morti)

While the wider metal scene is much more inclusive than for example the hardcore or the punk scene when it comes to bands from outside the US or the UK, bands from Eastern and South-Eastern Europe are still not getting… Continue Reading →
