Stahlsarg - Mechanisms of Misanthropy (Non Serviam Records)

Stahlsarg – Mechanisms of Misanthropy (Non Serviam Records)

Stahlsarg were formed in 2013, and still have their original line up of Eissturm on vocals and guitars, Krieg joining him on guitars, Destruction pounding on the bass and Eisenfaust providing the back bone on the drums, and they have gone from strength to strength.. Read More
Devlsy – Private Suite (ATMF)

Devlsy – Private Suite (ATMF)

Deep, reverberating sounds of a post black metal kind and a vocalist who sounds like he’s on his last legs … this is Devlsy from a sinister and depressive sounding place. As I got into “Corridors”, the first track of the band’s follow up to.. Read More
Forgotten Tomb – We Owe You Nothing (Agonia)

Forgotten Tomb – We Owe You Nothing (Agonia)

A bit of Winter Depression from Italy’s finest miserablists, although it is fair to say they have gone down a bit more of a hateful route of late. Proving that there is a method to Forgotten Tomb’s madness ‘We Owe You Nothing’ their 9th album.. Read More
Kapala - Infest Cesspool (Dunkelheit)

Kapala – Infest Cesspool (Dunkelheit)

Kapala (a Sanskrit word meaning skull I gather) are from India. Well this lot are, as I discovered two other bands sharing this name. The idea of fans of either of those other two bands accidentally downloading this amuses the fuck out of me, particularly.. Read More
Blut Aus Nord – Deus Salutis Maea (Debemur Morti Productions)

Blut Aus Nord – Deus Salutis Maea (Debemur Morti Productions)

In my (perhaps not-so-humble) opinion, Blut Aus Nord mastermind Vindsval is one of the most under-heralded geniuses within the black metal scene. For over two decades, he has quietly gone about his business under the BaN moniker to craft some of the most engaging, atmospheric,.. Read More
Zifir -  Kingdom Of Nothingness (Duplicate)

Zifir – Kingdom Of Nothingness (Duplicate)

I have no idea what being a black metal band in Turkey is like, but if you believe news I suspect it must be increasingly difficult. Two piece Zifir though (Onur Onok and Nursuz respectively) have been doing this for over ten years, and two.. Read More
The Spirit – Sounds From The Vortex (Eternal Echoes)

The Spirit – Sounds From The Vortex (Eternal Echoes)

If you’re used to judging a band by its name and album cover then you may already have decided to skip past The Spirit – but that, my friend, would have been a mistake. Because Sounds From the Vortex is actually some pretty solid black.. Read More
Throane – Plus Une Main A Mordre (Debemur Morti)

Throane – Plus Une Main A Mordre (Debemur Morti)

Apparently Plus Une Main A Mordre (Another Hand to Bite) “seeks balance between the struggle and the letting go, passing from chaos to quiet in revelatory circular motions”. Well, I certainly got the struggle behind it. The large scale, sweeping, crashing musical images suggest industrial.. Read More
Saiva – Markerna Bortom (Nordvis)

Saiva – Markerna Bortom (Nordvis)

Swedish melancholy folk metal band Saiva have been out in the wilderness somewhere or other concocting the strange old brew of pagan melodies for a few years now. Until now, they’ve dropped the odd single and a split with Grift – which turns out to.. Read More
Altarage -  Endinghent (Season Of Mist)

Altarage – Endinghent (Season Of Mist)

Strange and sinister creatures stalk the Basque Country of Spain bringing terror to the area not seen since the likes of The Blind Dead rode into town in all their ghastly glory. Well that is what the imagination dictates when looking at Altarage who we.. Read More
Mork -  Eremittens Dal (Peaceville)

Mork – Eremittens Dal (Peaceville)

Even before you reach the music here with Thomas Eriksen’s Mork one man project, you kind of get big galloping clues as to what you’ll get. From the logo to artwork and even the damned label you are walloped in the face with a whole.. Read More
Heir – Au Peuple de l’Abîme (LADLO Productions)

Heir – Au Peuple de l’Abîme (LADLO Productions)

French black metal has a good pedigree. Here’s another band, Heir, from Toulouse, who deliver “disillusioned post-black metal, dark, either fast or heavy, sometimes bright, but always dedicated to an atmosphere of contemplation or desolation”. Their CV so far comprises an EP and a split,.. Read More
