Black Death

Serum Dreg – Lustful Vengeance (Invictus Productions)

Serum Dreg sounds like an anagram to me. I can see murder and greed in there. The reality is that this debut from the US black metallers concentrates on the worship of sex, hedonism and ritualistic chaos. The fact that… Continue Reading →

Azziard – Metempsychose (Malpermesita Records)

Pulling this CD out of its wrapping I remembered the band name and that this deathly black troop from France had struck me as slightly bonkers on last album ‘Vesanie’ in 2014. At the time they had been in the… Continue Reading →

Nox Vorago – Al Chem (S/R)

Swedish outfit Nox Vorago have release their second album, 5 years after releasing their début, 11 years after forming in Gothenburg. Their style of symphonic death metal taken care of by founding members Magnus Andersson and Uduun, keyboards and vocals… Continue Reading →

Emptiness – Not For Music (Season Of Mist)

Belgians Emptiness have been on the go since 1998 and this makes their fifth studio album and my first encounter. Yep, finger on the pulse as ever… Anyway, I gather they come from a kind of black/death background which on… Continue Reading →

Bölzer – Hero (Iron Bonehead Productions)

Despite forming in 2008, Swiss black/death metal duo Bölzer have left it until 2016 to finally release their debut album ‘Hero’. Their output so far has consisted of a demo and two EPs, alongside a string of live shows –… Continue Reading →

Soulphernus – Peace is the Greatest Lie ov All (S/R)

Blackened death from Barnsley is what this 29 minute demo is. Now if I were to think of blackened death, I’d immediately conjure up visions of Behemoth. Judging by the first track “Come Force in the Name ov Daemons”, Soulphernus… Continue Reading →

Serpent Ascending – Ananku (I, Voidhanger)

Finland’s cult black-death metal band Serpent Ascending have been going for eight years, and now release their first album. The band seems to revolve around one individual, who has played with a number of other bands most of whom I’ve… Continue Reading →

Paroxsihzem – Abyss of Excruciating Vexes (Hellthrasher)

Never was an album title so apt as this one. Paroxsihzem just purvey apocalyptically blackened heaviness. Guitars occasionally shriek like wild horses but this is just an exercise in anarchy, chaos and extremity. The vocals are deadened growls rendering lyrics… Continue Reading →

Grave Miasma – Endless Pilgrimage (Sepulchral Voice/Profound Lore)

Grave Miasma are somewhat of a staple of the black and death metal scene within London. Chances are, if you’ve attended a gig within the last 36 months or so, you will have seen them at least once or twice…. Continue Reading →

Abhomine – Larvae Offal Swine (Osmose)

It’s time to go down deep, to the sewer of metal where all the slime festers and dead things lurk in decay and foul odour. The man behind ‘Larvae Offal Swine’ should need no introduction being Pete Helmkamp who has… Continue Reading →

The Infernal Sea – The Great Mortality (Cacophonous)

It’s always a pleasure being confronted with new extreme metal talent from the UK having not lived there for a decade. And even more so when you’re confronted with an act like The Infernal Sea, who hail from a familiar… Continue Reading →

Kosmokrator – To The Svmmit (Ván)

We’ll go into the ‘not to be confused withs’ at a later point. But, just to be clear, this is the bestial black metal band from Belgium – and a new band with a demo that’s been doing the rounds… Continue Reading →
