The Antichrist Imperium – Vol. II: Every Tongue Shall Praise Satan (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Back in 2015, blast-master David Gray unleashed ‘The Antichrist Imperium’ with former Akercocke guitarist Matt Wilcock. An awesome piece of avant-garde death/black metal utilizing the remnants of what would have been Ak’s 6th album. But now that the mighty Akercocke are back in the game.. Read More

Myrkvid – Demons are Inside (Immortal Frost)

French black metal is reliable and often edgy, so this second EP from Myrkvid and follow up to the “Pleasures of Hell” (2013) album attracted immediate interest. The album gets under way with a mish-mash of styles. First there’s the suggestion of death n roll,.. Read More

Keys Of Orthanc – Dush Agh Golnauk (Naturmacht Productions)

Tolkien’s legacy will live forever as a benchmark for Fantasy literature and thanks to Peter Jackson a benchmark for Fantasy cinema as well. Although I have only ever had the pleasure of viewing the films a mistake I must rectify in the near future, my.. Read More
Abstracter – Cinereous Incarnate (I, Voidhanger Records)

Abstracter – Cinereous Incarnate (I, Voidhanger Records)

Secreting from the US this colossally oppressive extreme metal act suffocates the planet with their third auditory excretion that equates to asphyxiation submerged within a vat of corrosive bitumen the moment the album starts with “Nether”. Whilst my superlative ridden opening garland hints at a.. Read More
