Wiegedood – London Boston Arms 5/9/19

If you absolutely love an album what better way is there than seeing it performed live and in its entirety? This is a way bands and artists have embraced fully in the last decade or so and it is a… Continue Reading →

Unmensch – Scorn (Immortal Frost Productions)

I was surprised to learn that Unmensch hadn’t been snapped up as a name. It’s as it sounds. This is a cold and misanthropic black metal band from Belgium, with whom, we’re told, comparisons can be made with the likes… Continue Reading →

Putrified J – The Deep End of Horror (Comatose Music)

I have always found that when music comes with a barrage of adverbs, that somehow, through the hyperbole, that this is merely window dressing that’s distracting you from the fact that the music sucks ass. And the same can be… Continue Reading →

Kludde – In de Kwelm (Consouling Sounds)

It’s always worth keeping a close eye on the furtive black metal scenes of countries such as Belgium and Holland; there is no escaping the fact they put much of what is going on in the UK underground to shame…. Continue Reading →

Enthroned – Cold Black Suns (Season Of Mist)

Despite the fact that the infamous Norwegian Black Metal scene ‘had nothing to do with Satanism’ (as Varg puts it) it is impossible to ignore the fact that the media hyped the story with notions of devil worship. Due to… Continue Reading →

Oldd Wvrms – Codex Tenebris (Cursed Monk Records)

Forming in 2014 Belgian quartet Oldd Wvrms have bashed out two E.P.s and two full length collections in their short life. Their third “Codex Tenebres” is thunderous fist of darkly atmospheric instrumentals that draw from sludge, doom, post rock and… Continue Reading →

Thronum Vrondor – Ichor (The Rebellion) (Pulverised Records)

Ten years on from “Vrondor II: Conducting the Orchestra of Evil” these devotees of black metal from Belgium have released their third album. The opener “A Symbol of Acrimony” is like an icon of black metal. No sludgy, eerie bits… Continue Reading →

Interview – Saqra’s Cult

2019 certainly got off to a fiery start courtesy of The 9th King, second album from Belgian band Saqra’s Cult. Although fairly new on the scene with debut demo ‘Initiation To Forgotten Rites’ being unleashed in 2015 the quartet have… Continue Reading →

Saqra’s Cult – The 9th King (Amor Fati Productions)

It’s not unusual to have bands from one geographic region dipping back in time and getting thematically entranced by a far removed and often ancient civilisation. Just think about the amount of Americans who walk like an Egyptian for example…. Continue Reading →
