Interview – Saqra’s Cult

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

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
