Rituals of the Dead Hand – Blood Oath (Dunkelheit Produktionen)

Metal , especially Extreme Metal has mined the caverns of folklore for decades. Whether it be Norse or Pagan , Hopkins or Crowley there is plenty in history to provide a muse for musicians with a penchant for darkness and daring do.  Belgium’s Rituals of the.. Read More
Paragon Impure – Sade (Ván Records)

Paragon Impure – Sade (Ván Records)

A project which first saw the light of day in 2004 before being indefinitely shelved in 2009, Paragon Impure finally bring us their sophomore album. The debut album from way back in 2005 was little more than Darkthrone worship, and this second offering also harks.. Read More
Moss Upon The Skull – In Vengeful Reverence (I, Voidhanger Records)

Moss Upon The Skull – In Vengeful Reverence (I, Voidhanger Records)

I’d never heard of Moss Upon The Skull prior to being sent this. Cool name, cool artwork. I was salivating at the thought of some Autopsy-like, grimey death metal as I hit “play”. Would these Belgians get my head banging or was it to be.. Read More

Formed in 2000, Belgian Progressive Metal five piece Ethernity were up until recently a Six- piece. Due to vocalist Julie Colin leaving the band (due to Personal Reasons), the band are now seemingly on the hunt for a new vocalist and releasing Julie’s swansong: concept.. Read More
Aborted – TerrorVision (Century Media)

Aborted – TerrorVision (Century Media)

Band names in Metal are always something to stir up a little bit of shock, laughter or amazement in the workplace. The general conversation being something along the lines of “so who are you going to see tonight?” this will be followed by a pause.. Read More
Carnation – Chapel of Abhorrence (Season of Mist)

Carnation – Chapel of Abhorrence (Season of Mist)

Belgian band Carnation are responsible for meaty death metal. Not bad for a band who shares its name with a brand of evaporated milk. In their five years of existence they’ve managed to get to Asia and this year toured alongside Pestilence in Brazil. Live.. Read More
Fading Bliss - Journeys In Solitude (Malpermesita Records)

Fading Bliss – Journeys In Solitude (Malpermesita Records)

With titles like the above it would be a fairly safe bet that we would be in funeral doom territory with this Belgian group, and indeed that is the case. Four tracks and around forty five minutes: Ocean, Mountain, A Forest, Desert. A journey indeed... Read More
Wolvennest – VOID (Ván Records)

Wolvennest – VOID (Ván Records)

Belgium’s Wolvennest have made quite the impact since the release of their self-titled debut last year- teaming up with Albin Julius and Marthynna of Der Blutharsch and The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand for a first record is a strong choice and gives listeners.. Read More
Barst – The Endeavour (Consouling Sounds)

Barst – The Endeavour (Consouling Sounds)

Apparently this is the seventh release from Belgian collective Barst. I can’t say I know much about the first five but last album ‘The Western Lands’ went down a treat. Imaginative, experimental and with literary source going back to William S Burroughs it really enchanted.. Read More
Gateway - Boundless Torture (Pulverised)

Gateway – Boundless Torture (Pulverised)

Ok I had never heard Gateway before this, a one man band from Belgian Robin Van Oyen, but it had sat on the review list for a week so I thought “Hey, give it a go.. bit of doom death, what could possibly go… woorrng….”.. Read More
Eye Of Solitude / Marche Funèbre – Split (Hypnotic Dirge)

Eye Of Solitude / Marche Funèbre – Split (Hypnotic Dirge)

Two well respected bands in extreme doom circles go at it together for this split release, both with one track each. Due to the genre as you would expect that does not mean a shortage of material in any respect as the numbers weigh in.. Read More
Wiegedood - De doden hebben het goed III (Century Media)

Wiegedood – De doden hebben het goed III (Century Media)

If you have been keeping an eye on these oddly sounding named Belgians you will probably be expecting greatness from this the 3rd part of their trilogy of “the dead.” Yeah you could even compare to Night, Dawn and Day really and all three of.. Read More
