Funeral Storm – Arcane Mysteries (Hells Headbangers)

I guess the Greek black metal scene will always hold a special place in my catalogued heart simply because bands like Necromantia and Varathron were some of the first I came across in my faltering first steps into black metal… Continue Reading →

Gaahls WYRD – GastiR – Ghosts Invited (Season of Mist)

Gaahl is synonymous with black metal and is a true uber behemoth of the world, a demi god, if you will, of the genre and any new work by the master is welcomed with open arms. Gaahls Wyrd has been… Continue Reading →

Epectase – Astres (I, Voidhanger)

French duo Vague and Avitus who comprise this enigmatic black metal outfit have constructed a debut release that is as ferocious as it is utterly beguiling and enthralling. Within the five compositions the band has developed their own sonic tapestry… Continue Reading →

Esoctrilihum – The Telluric Ashes Of The Ö Vrth Immemorial Gods (I, Voidhanger)

The use of symphonic or orchestrated elements in Metal is something that as the years have gone by has become more prevalent. I feel that for the most part it represents a sort of mainstream accessibility giving listeners catchy hooks… Continue Reading →

Bethlehem – Lebe Dich Leer (Prophecy)

1991 The year of Bethlehem’s inception. Since then they have released a plethora of LP’s, splits and EPs. The style within those recordings has whipped between DSBM, Industrial, Black Metal and the outright weird. In 2016 the present incarnation with… Continue Reading →

Suhnopfer – Hic Regnant Borbonii Names (Debemur Morti Productions)

Experior Obscura – Iter In Nebula (Third I Rex)

The world isn’t flooded with background information or knowledge surrounding this black metal outfit, Experior Obscura, although we do know that the genius behind the band, Nefastus, can often be seen moonlighting in different guises for a pick and mix… Continue Reading →

Time Lurker / Cepheide – Split (Ladlo Productions)

Two French bands uniting under the split release format here. Both have been explored by this writer in the past so I kind of knew what to expect. Fast tremolo picking, raging swarms of blackness and a harrowing, hollering vocal… Continue Reading →

Windthrow – Treacherous Beckonings (S/R)

Well I have to say first off that when someone sends a vinyl copy of their debut as a review copy you do kinda sit up and notice, so thanks for that. Good cover too, and well worth the LP… Continue Reading →

Sathamel – Horror Vacui (S/R)

Once more something stirs in what I am now convinced is a remarkable UKBM scene. It seems to be growing particularly strong in Wales and the North or England at the moment and it’s the latter from where black/death outfit… Continue Reading →

Laetitia in Holocaust – Fauci tra Fauci (Third I Rex)

From the historical city of Modena in the northern part of Italy come Laetitia in Holocaust with their unusual brand of black metal. “Fauci tra Fauci” is their third album release. Scornful and dirty is the way I’d describe the… Continue Reading →

Murg –Strävan (Nordvis)

If you somehow managed to miss Murg’s frost-bitten and pretty fucking stunning debut, perhaps holed up in your wintery forest domain wearing corpse paint and living only on food you caught and strangled with your bare hands, I can only… Continue Reading →
