From The Bogs Of Aughiska - Mineral Bearing Veins (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

From The Bogs Of Aughiska – Mineral Bearing Veins (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

It has been a good long while since the last full length by this tremendous Irish band, 2013’s ‘Roots Of This Earth Within My Blood’ and really their only recorded output in between was the odd but excellent ‘Fenian Ram’ single (albeit seventeen minutes of.. Read More
Sepulcher – Panoptic Horror (Edged Circle Productions)

Sepulcher – Panoptic Horror (Edged Circle Productions)

This Norwegian bands logo takes some deciphering as it appears that scant information is known about their members though they have released a debut titled “Mausoleum Tapestry” in 2015 which I’ve not heard. For 2018 the band has released a stripped back album of raw,.. Read More
Malthusian – Across Deaths (Invictus)

Malthusian – Across Deaths (Invictus)

Well let’s face it, this was never going to be pretty. Irish extremists Malthusian more than proved themselves with 2015 EP ‘Below The Hengiform’ as well as at various live eviscerations. They have been quiet for a while but now they are back, armed with.. Read More
Azaghal - Valo Pohjoisesta (Immortal Frost Productions)

Azaghal – Valo Pohjoisesta (Immortal Frost Productions)

The Finnish black metal scene continues to spawn some the most abrasive bands out there, resisting the temptation to incorporate epic choirs, orchestras and keyboards, instead focussing on gnarly aggression. Azaghal are one of that flourishing scene, and by my reckoning they have been around.. Read More
Archgoat - The Luciferian Crown (Debemur Morti)

Archgoat – The Luciferian Crown (Debemur Morti)

We all set out with our Metal virginity and naivety intact, chipping away at each of them from genre to genre. I remember vividly my first exposure to Cradle Of Filth, I sat there and laughed because I simply couldn’t believe music could be so.. Read More
Neckbeard Deathcamp – White Nationalism is for Basement Dwelling Losers (S/R)

Neckbeard Deathcamp – White Nationalism is for Basement Dwelling Losers (S/R)

Heavy Metal loves a sub-genre and extreme metal takes it to fetish levels. If it can be broken down, cross pollinated and put into a tiny box it’s like aural Viagra to us. Black metal is one of the more wanton culprits – its acronym.. Read More
Kommandant – Blood Eel (ATMF)

Kommandant – Blood Eel (ATMF)

The raging gas masked war-machine from Chicago are back. I have been faithfully following musical orders from Kommandant since they sent in their 2010 EP Kontakt, a couple of albums have followed and the band have collaborated on a host of splits with the likes.. Read More
MANTAR – The Modern Art of Setting Ablaze (Nuclear Blast)

MANTAR – The Modern Art of Setting Ablaze (Nuclear Blast)

‘Death by Burning’, ‘Ode to the Flame’, ‘The Modern Art of Setting Ablaze’ – it would appear Germany’s newest power duo, MANTAR, are pyromaniacs; however, if an obsession with fire is what helps them to keep releasing such enormous sounding albums then keep the fire.. Read More
P.H.O.B.O.S -  Phlogiston Catharsis (Transcending Obscurity)

P.H.O.B.O.S – Phlogiston Catharsis (Transcending Obscurity)

My only previous encounter with French industrial death/doom outfit P.H.O.B.O.S was their Triunity split with Blut Aus Nord a few years back, which should at least give you an idea about the kind of headfuck you’re going to encounter here. Well maybe. ‘Biomorphorror’ gives you.. Read More
Iskald - Innhøstinga (Indie Recordings)

Iskald – Innhøstinga (Indie Recordings)

One of the things which reviewers are expected to do is attach genre labels to bands, and while it can be useful to give a vague idea of what a band might sounds like, it can be a minefield and all too often ridiculous tags.. Read More
Profezia – Dodekaprofeton (Moribund Records)

Profezia – Dodekaprofeton (Moribund Records)

If Italian Avant Garde is how you like your black metal then you are in for a treat, as the overlords of the Italian occult rock world, Profezia, are back with their long awaited, and highly anticipated 3rd album ‘Dodekaprofeton’. The soul of this opus.. Read More
