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
Squidhead - Cult[ist] (S/R)

Squidhead – Cult[ist] (S/R)

Miskatonic University graduates Squidhead are a three-piece who haul from Belgium and have nothing but high praise for the “Great Old One”. Spawned from the depths of Pierre “Pish” Minet, the project was initially a solo endeavour but it has now been blessed by what.. Read More
Hemelbestormer - A Ring of Blue Light (Ván)

Hemelbestormer – A Ring of Blue Light (Ván)

Hemelbestormer are four gentlemen from Belgium with a musical background in hardcore, doom and black metal. Their new album, A Ring of Blue Light, features instrumental post-rock with ambient, experimental and doom elements. All tracks have been named after astronomical phenomena, the last track, The..

Monads – IVIIV (Aesthetic Death)

Monads – IVIIV (Aesthetic Death)

A monad is the first, an originator or most simple building block from which everything else comes. All of which somehow nicely sums up the inescapable feeling when listening to this type of slow ‘n’ heavy metal – that this is the genre in its.. Read More
Slow – V Oceans (Code666)

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 – 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)

Skinweaver – Gratification Eternal (Great Dane Records)

I’m a lucky bugger sometimes. “Send me anything you like” I said to the editor when the weekly review listings came out. I didn’t recognise any of the bands on it so wanted to absolve myself from any decision making (I’m a busy boy don’t.. Read More
