Rituals of the Dead Hand – Blood Oath (Dunkelheit Produktionen)

Rituals of the Dead Hand – Blood Oath (Dunkelheit Produktionen)

Metal , especially Extreme Metal has mined the caverns of folklore for decades. Whether it be Norse or Pagan , Hopkins or Crowley there is plenty in history to provide a muse for musicians with a penchant for darkness and daring do.  Belgium’s Rituals of the.. Read More
Anomalie – Integra (AOP Records)

Anomalie – Integra (AOP Records)

The scene in Austria seems a little bit incestuous and anyone involved either on album or live with prime exports Harakiri For The Sky seems to be heavily involved in plenty of other projects and a good family tree between bands could easily be constructed... Read More
Necandi Homines – Black Hole (Third I Rex)

Necandi Homines – Black Hole (Third I Rex)

I have not quite worked out whether it is deep space that Italian cult act Necandi Homines have been mining or the void beneath the crust of the earth but they have certainly dredged up some obsidian gold in their travels with this intriguing EP.. Read More
Lucifer’s Child – The Order (Agonia)

Lucifer’s Child – The Order (Agonia)

Appearing seemingly out of nowhere ‘The Wiccan’, debut album from Lucifer’s Child impressed no end. No surprise about that really as the Greek band comprises of members of Rotting Christ, Nightfall and Chaostar instrumentally along with the singer from Karma Violets. Catching them live at..

Druj – Chants To Irkalla (Godz Ov War)

Druj – Chants To Irkalla (Godz Ov War)

Irkalla is the ancient Mesopotamian underworld and when they are not at home in Anchorage Alaska it is where Druj dwell. I’m not sure if there is a huge difference between the locations having the idea form in my head that both are quite cold.. Read More
Paragon Impure – Sade (Ván Records)

Paragon Impure – Sade (Ván Records)

A project which first saw the light of day in 2004 before being indefinitely shelved in 2009, Paragon Impure finally bring us their sophomore album. The debut album from way back in 2005 was little more than Darkthrone worship, and this second offering also harks.. Read More
Apatheia – Konstelacja Dziur (Godz of War)

Apatheia – Konstelacja Dziur (Godz of War)

This black metal album is the debut from Apatheia, but since top quality musicians, especially in extreme genres, seem to grow on trees in their native Poland, I had no concerns. The title means “constellation of holes”. After a suitably menacing beginning, a man with.. Read More
The Order Of Apollyon – Moriah (Agonia)

The Order Of Apollyon – Moriah (Agonia)

Once upon a time, shortly after being founded by then Aborted frontman BST in 2008, The Order Of Apollyon were rounded out by stalwarts of the British underground. The band then underwent a merry-go-round of musician changes through the release of their second album, before.. Read More
Angrrsth – Znikąd (Godz of War)

Angrrsth – Znikąd (Godz of War)

“From Nowhere” is the translation of this EP from black metal band Angrrsth. Actually they come from Toruń in Poland, and this is their debut work. The first track is a bit of a riot – harsh as hell of course as it’s Polish, heavy,.. Read More
Profanatica – Altar Of The Virgin Whore (Hell’s Headbangers)

Profanatica – Altar Of The Virgin Whore (Hell’s Headbangers)

Proving that they are dirty old men Profanatica posted the following message on their social media recently “Attention European Females Profanatica will be there this week Cum meet us in person and Feel the difference.” That’s nice, perhaps they just want to ensure that the.. Read More
Outre – Hollow Earth (Debemur Morti)

Outre – Hollow Earth (Debemur Morti)

Outre have been out of the spotlight since releasing “Ghost Chants” in 2015, and having finally recruited a full-time vocalist in 2017 now follow up on that debut. The guest vocals from Stawrogin on “Ghost Chants” were, frankly, stylistically all over the place, so it’s.. Read More
Ophidian Forest - votive (Code666)

Ophidian Forest – votive (Code666)

Ok I mostly picked this up through intrigue. Intrigue caused by an ex-guitarist running their original Facebook page, not having talked to them for five years, directing people to the new page and mumbling about not having a clue what “psyche proggy black metal is.. Read More
