Monads – IVIIV (Aesthetic Death)

Monads – IVIIV (Aesthetic Death)

Slow – V Oceans (Code666)

It’s all in the title, this is slow stuff and album number 5 from Belgium bred but Bulgarian based Déhà who is aided here lyrically and conceptually by Lore. Digging deeper there is a bit more meaning into the name rather than just plonking Slow.. Read More

Yhdarl – Loss (I, Voidhanger Records)

Yhdarl’s claim to fame is their ability to crush “all music boundaries between suicidal, depressive, doom, noise and drone black metal”. With a link to Cult of Erinyes and a host of other bands, “Loss” is the Franco-Belgian duo’s eighth full album release. Violence, agony.. Read More

Skinweaver – Gratification Eternal (Great Dane Records)

Antzaat – The Black Hand Of The Father (Immortal Frost)

Antzaat are something of an Enigma with limited information available about them giving an air of mystery, further compounded by their promo photos with hoods up and faces obscured. However, what I do know is that this Belgian quartet have delivered a stunning debut EP.. Read More

Leng Tch’e – Razorgrind (Season of Mist)

Seven years is not an eternity when it comes to recording hiatus. However in the extreme metal world where bands blast out releases like pustules bursting on a leprous back, the time since Leng Tch’e released Hypomaniac has certainly stretched the patience of their fans... Read More
Moss Upon The Skull - Scourge of Ages (S/R)

Moss Upon The Skull – Scourge of Ages (S/R)

Treyharsh, in case you hadn’t heard of them as I hadn’t, have been plying their dark and heavy trade in Northern France and Belgium since 2011. “When the Sun Sets in the East” is their second album. One thing I very much liked about this.. Read More

Barst – The Western Lands (Consouling Sounds)

Experimental and expansive Barst are one of many Belgium artists that refuse to be pigeonholed taking on a huge range of styles in this sprawling two track musical odyssey inspired by William S Burroughs The Western Lands. Ideally I had planned to track down and.. Read More
