Medico Peste – Herzogian Darkness (W.T.C. Productions)

Medico Peste – Herzogian Darkness (W.T.C. Productions)

This form of pestilential darkness comes to us via Poland and a calibre of musicians who have been involved past and present, on and off stage with the likes of Old Woods Grave, Mgla, Clandestine Blaze and Mord A’Stigmata. Speaking of Stigmata there’s a cover.. Read More
The Furor – Cavalries Of The Occult (Transcending Obscurity)

The Furor – Cavalries Of The Occult (Transcending Obscurity)

If any genre of metal could lay claim to being the purest, most distilled version of metal – more metal than metal – then the one espoused by Emperor-look-a-like band The Furor must be it. Drenched in battling solos, down-tuned black metal-style riffs and no-nonsense.. Read More
Goath – Luciferian Goath Ritual (Ván Records)

Goath – Luciferian Goath Ritual (Ván Records)

The moment you look at the rather disturbing but eye catching cover art alongside the bands fantastic logo you know you’re in for a sinister listen. With only one demo out previously this debut, from the German newcomers, hits the ground at a proverbial gallop... Read More

Doedsvangr – Satan Ov Suns (Immortal Frost Productions)

Tread carefully for we are about to enter the fields of death! Doedsvangr may well be a new name to us but the unholy triumvirate behind this cult are not. Lead singer of Nordjevel and Svartelder Doedadmiral, has collaborated with Tsjuder sticksman Anti-Christian and Shatraug.. Read More
Aversio Humanitatis – Longing For The Untold (Blackseed Productions)

Aversio Humanitatis – Longing For The Untold (Blackseed Productions)

Putting the dread in Madrid, Spain is not a sunny place at all thanks to this 4 track EP by this anti-human bunch. New to me, Aversio Humanitatis released a limited cassette album in 2011 and a couple of splits with Selbst, Nihil and Primigenium.. Read More
Locust Leaves – A Subtler Kind of Light (I, Voidhanger)

Locust Leaves – A Subtler Kind of Light (I, Voidhanger)

Locust Leaves have an “ecumenical vision of metal”, whatever that means. In fact when I read the following statement, I realised it was time to stop reading and start listening: “A voice, a final utterance of a vague, illogical, recurring consonant/vowel that can’t be pinpointed.. Read More
Entartung – Baptised Into The Faith Of Lust (W.T.C. Productions)

Entartung – Baptised Into The Faith Of Lust (W.T.C. Productions)

I can only really start this in the same fashion of a colleague on review of last Entartung album ‘Peccata Mortalia’ and wonder just why the two key proponents of the band Lykormas and Vulfolaic are considered as “veterans of the old-school black metal scene.”.. Read More
Saille - Gnosis (code 666)

Saille – Gnosis (code 666)

I remember being impressed with Belgian band Saille’s debut album “Irreversible Decay” in 2011, since when they’ve released two more epic black metal albums and now a fourth in “Gnosis”. This album is a concept album based around “Prometheus: Poem of Fire”. This seems ideal.. Read More
Fäulnis – Antikult (Grau)

Fäulnis – Antikult (Grau)

Out of the blue a sudden announcement came that German Sickblackartists Fäulnis were preparing a new album and I patiently awaited it to fall in my promo in-tray downloading it the second it did. From then I have been immersing myself back in their somewhat.. Read More
Black Cilice – Banished from Time (Iron Bonehead Productions)

Black Cilice – Banished from Time (Iron Bonehead Productions)

I first came across this Portuguese black metal band in 2015 through their album “Mysteries”. Eerie whistling and fog-filled atmospheres met blasting and chaos-laden black metal. “Mysteries” was far from the first release by the band, whose discography covers two further albums, numerous demos and..

Fen – Winter (Code666)

Fen – Winter (Code666)

After what seems like an eternity, but in actuality three years, Fen have returned with the successor to their 2014 full length release “Carrion Skies”, with the magnificent opus that is “Winter”. I’ve been a fan of Fen for a very long time, and throughout.. Read More
