Illum Adora – Infernum et Necromantium (Folter Records)

Following up last year’s debut album …Of Serpentine Forces, German occultists Illum Adora reconvene under the sign of the Baphomet once more with this 5 track EP release. This is second wave era black metal with a solid stench of… Continue Reading →

Earth Rot – Black Tides of Obscurity (Season of Mist)

Earth Rot have been doing their black metal thing since 2013, since when they’ve released two eps and now three albums. Although they’ve never come into my life previously, it’s clear that they’ve put themselves about a bit, having toured… Continue Reading →

Ad Vitam Infernal – Infernal Comedy (Lavadome)

It must be a daunting prospect being a new band. You put all your stock into creating something fresh and invigorating. Not to mention the fact that your material will always sound good to your ear because you’re forever practising… Continue Reading →

Haxandraok – KI SI KIL UD DA KAR RA (Van)

Sometimes I watch bands live or hear a song or record and just think ‘what is the point in this?’ Truthfully, I find a disdain for anything that isn’t trying to at least tread some new ground, even if that… Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →
