Eigenlicht – Self-Annihilating Consciousness (I, Voidhanger)

Eigenlicht – Self-Annihilating Consciousness (I, Voidhanger)

It’s far too simplistic to label such a rich, complex and emotionally driven album as this from the outset with a tag or casually applied subgenre label. So it might be better to sidestep any analysis of purpose at this stage by kicking off this.. Read More
OPHE – Litteras Ad Tristia Maestrum Solitude (My Kingdom Music)

OPHE – Litteras Ad Tristia Maestrum Solitude (My Kingdom Music)

Not much to go on here, but I did establish that OPHE is a one man avant-garde black metal outfit, and the one man likes people like DHG, Blut aus Nord, Manes and Anorexia Nervosa. So that’s good. As for the thing itself, dissonant grimness.. Read More
Warfist / Excidium - Laws Of Perversion And Filth  (Godz Ov War Productions)

Warfist / Excidium – Laws Of Perversion And Filth (Godz Ov War Productions)

I was lucky enough to get hold of the album “Metal To The Bone” by Polish leather & stud enthusiasts Warfist last year and it couldn’t have had a more appropriate title so when the opportunity arose to write about this new 8 track split.. Read More
Arkheth - 12 Winter Moons Comes The Witches Brew (Transcending Obscurity)

Arkheth – 12 Winter Moons Comes The Witches Brew (Transcending Obscurity)

Arkheth is not the most productive band in the world. Having released its debut album in 2003 and a successor in 2010, they took another eight years to come up with “12 Winter Moons Comes The Witches Brew”. The new album marks a new era.. Read More
Interview - Summoning

Interview – Summoning

We recently conducted a survey to discover where extreme metal musicians liked to go on holiday. We found that those of a death metal persuasion favoured places such as Innsmouth and Dunwich; unfortunately many are never seen again. As far as your average black-packer is.. Read More
Anima Damnata – Nefarious Seed Grows To Bring Forth Supremacy Of The Beast (Godz Ov War)

Anima Damnata – Nefarious Seed Grows To Bring Forth Supremacy Of The Beast (Godz Ov War)

Nice album title…..trips of the tongue a treat doesn’t it? You might think I’m being sarcastic here but compared to their 2003 debut “Agonizing Journey Through The Burning Universe And Transcendental Ritual Of Transfiguration” it really does. This Polish bunch of Satan botherers have been.. Read More
Horizon Ablaze - The Weight of a Thousand Suns (Leviatan Diger)

Horizon Ablaze – The Weight of a Thousand Suns (Leviatan Diger)

Avant-garde extreme metal albums seem to be following me around so far this year, and here’s another one from Norway’s Horizon Ablaze. “The Weight of a Thousand Suns” is a “journey through the human psyche and a deep dive into the man’s innermost fears and.. Read More
The Ugly – Thanatology (ViciSolum Productions)

The Ugly – Thanatology (ViciSolum Productions)

The Ugly. Now there’s a name for a black metal band. This is the third full length from this Swedish horde, my first meeting with them and I guess they pretty much lay out their plan of attack from about a minute into the title.. Read More
Labyrinth Entrance – Monumental Bitterness (Godz Ov War)

Labyrinth Entrance – Monumental Bitterness (Godz Ov War)

Some albums thunder towards you like a line of fully-plated cavalry with armour and shining swords flashing in the blazing sun, while others prefer to sneak up on you from the shadows. Labyrinth Entrance – full marks for a great name – belongs to the.. Read More
Paara – Riitti (ViciSolum)

Paara – Riitti (ViciSolum)

Paara return with ‘Riittti’, and they deliver an exercise in how to take the rough with the smooth, with this latest offering. They deliver up just 4 slabs of black metal, but these are spanned over a full 42 minutes. The band, spawned in 2011,have.. Read More
Interview - Deinonychus

Interview – Deinonychus

  Landing at the tail end of last year ‘Ode to Acts of Murder, Dystopia and Suicide’ was an album that wrapped up 2017 with a more than healthy blast of negativity. One could be forgiven for having all but forgotten about Dutch band Deinonychus.. Read More
Untervoid – S/T (Osmose Productions)

Untervoid – S/T (Osmose Productions)

The duo that comprises this Polish outfit are established members within the country’s extreme metal scene. Adam Sierżęga, aka A, and Konrad Ramotowski, aka Destroyer, have done their service in the underground via acts such as Azarath, Armagedon for the former and Kriegmaschine and Hate.. Read More
