30,000 Monkies – Are Forever (Consouling Sounds)

These Belgian noiseniks are back with their first long player since 2016’s “I Ate Myself To Grow Twice As Big”. 30,000 Monkeys still seem very intent on crushing skulls and making ears bleed with their own very peculiar brand of… Continue Reading →

Throatsnapper – About the Dead (Consouling Sounds)

With a name like Throatsnapper you’d be well within your rights to expect either a volatile hard core punk band spitting out vitriolic lyrics, or at the very least an intimidating blackened death metal band that take devilish glee inflicting… Continue Reading →

Slow – VI – Dantalion (Code666)

We had only just been ravaged by Belgium multi-instrumentalist Déhà’s latest album under the Merda Mundi moniker when Slow’s 6th opus dropped in and the two discs could not be further apart. The former play caustic black metal with anti-humanist… Continue Reading →

RDS220 – Hell Is A Truth Seen Too Late (Consouling Sounds)

Naming themselves after the “Soviet RDS-220 hydrogen bomb which is the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated” and with artwork in poppy shape with a scene of trench warfare it’s a case of lest we forget here from this group… Continue Reading →

Merda Mundi – Hatred (Malpermesita Records)

When the synopsis read that this package was ‘really nasty’ my interest peaked and I felt compelled to request it in order to be privy to the experience myself. Deha, and Merda Mundi, do not disappoint and launches the latest… 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 →

Arcane Voidsplitter – Voice Of The Stars (Aesthetic Death)

Mankind has always been fascinated by outer space, the stars and heavenly bodies he can just about still see from our smog filled cities glittering in the night sky. Musicians are no exception and this no doubt this goes right… Continue Reading →

Soul Grip – Not Ever (ConSouling Sounds)

Soul Grip are a five piece from Ghent in Belgium and what rages in my ears is their second full length of post Blackness.  I can hear the eyes rolling in their sockets. “More short haired folk mixing My Bloody Valentine… Continue Reading →
