In Human Form – Opening of the Eye by the Death of I (I, Voidhanger)

That’s one clunky album title but actually that’s Ok as this is one clunky album. Continuing on their everlasting quest to pick out the obscure and unfathomable, Italian label I, Voidhanger always manage to keep us on our toes and their latest trio of releases.. Read More

Acherontas – Amarta (Formulas of Reptilian Unification Part II) (World Terror Committee)

Penetrating the increasingly esoteric world of Acherontas V Priest and his various collaborators is becoming a bit of an adventure – albeit one that is bleak and unforgiving. The outfit undoubtedly made its initial impact with some impressive occult-driven black metal with unashamedly good, hook-filled.. Read More

Wederganger / Urfaust – Split (Ván Records)

I’ve been a fan of Wederganger since I saw them at Eindhoven Metal Meeting 2016, and I have heard a lot of good things about Urfaust and have been keen to check them out, but somehow, I have never got around to it. So, when.. Read More
Eoront – Another Realm (Code 666)

Eoront – Another Realm (Code 666)

The whole concept of this intrigued me. Eoront is an atmospheric black metal project from Siberia. This is their third album. Nature pours through the opening track “The Rain”. The drops of water can be heard and there is a crackling fire, but it’s as.. Read More
Merrimack – Omegaphilia (Season Of Mist)

Merrimack – Omegaphilia (Season Of Mist)

Norse – The Divine Light of a New Sun (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Black metal is much like a living organism, staying true to its roots while constantly evolving and developing, and many modern day black metal outfits have little in common with the forefathers of this genre. However, these days it is rare to discover a band.. Read More
Carach Angren – Dance and Laugh Amongst the Rotten (Season of Mist)

Carach Angren – Dance and Laugh Amongst the Rotten (Season of Mist)

Like an extravagant dessert, Carach Angren are back. These men from The Netherlands are never backward in coming forward and presenting their theatrical, horror-laden, over the top version of black metal. Here we go again with “Dance and Laugh Amongst the Rotten”. A symphonic start.. Read More
Fellwarden – Oathbearer (Eisenwald)

Fellwarden – Oathbearer (Eisenwald)

Fellwarden is the solo project of The Watcher from Fen (ably supported by Fen drummer Havenless) and whilst you should not necessarily think too long on the relationship between solo projects and a musician’s main band I think here a little connectivity is in order... Read More
Ofermod – Sol Nox (Shadow Records)

Ofermod – Sol Nox (Shadow Records)

Well over a decade or so ago, Ofermod were much discussed in hushed, whispered tones throughout the underground. Their ‘Mysterion Tes Anomias’ EP had been doing the circuit for some time and – highly regarded piece of art as it was – it was thought.. Read More

Svartsyn – In Death (Agonia)

Svartsyn – In Death (Agonia)

Hailing from Sweden, yet sounding as if they have been delivered straight from the bowels of hell, this duo is ready to unleash another instalment of satanic verses onto this unsuspecting world, with such a tirade that it sounds like Lucifer has written it herself... Read More
