Misanthropic Rage – Towards the Greyscale Aphorism (Godz ov War)

After two firecracker albums in “Gates No Longer Shut” (2016) and “Igne Natura Renovatur Integra” (2018), Polish black metal band Misanthropic Rage makes a welcome return with this one. Both of the previous albums were atmospheric and sophisticated, differing from… Continue Reading →

Hideous Divinity – Simulacrum (Century Media)

Do you ever hate on bands for the lamest reasons? Well not so much hate but perhaps not care for. In a very ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ sense we all have preconceived judgements when it comes to… Continue Reading →

Hour Of Penance – Misotheism (Agonia)

A few years back I couldn’t be bothered with all that Tech nonsense. Truth be told a lot of it still washes over me now, especially when we’re talking about artists like Tesseract and Periphery. It’s like I enjoy it,… Continue Reading →

Arallu – En Olam (Satanath Records)

This brew of Middle Eastern strains and blackened death metal points to Arallu of Israel. And although of different roots from the Vedic metal band Rudra, which is how I originally got to know about them, there are stylistic similarities…. Continue Reading →

Hex – God Has No Name (Transcending Obscurity)

Death Doom is a genre which has evolved over the years and always had a place in Death Metal’s overall history, just look back to Severed Survival the classic album by Autopsy. It has gone on to form the basis… Continue Reading →

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 →
