Enisum – Moth’s Illusion (Avantgarde Music)

Best to say it straight, right? OK then: This is the best album I’ve had to review in quite some time. Enisum might have their name backwards, but apart from that, it appears, they are doing everything right. Enisum are… Continue Reading →

Soul Grip – Not Ever (ConSouling Sounds)

Soul Grip are a five piece from Ghent in Belgium and what rages in my ears is their second full length of post Blackness.  I can hear the eyes rolling in their sockets. “More short haired folk mixing My Bloody Valentine… Continue Reading →

Bergraven – Det Framlidna Minnet (Nordvis)

It’s been a decade since last album ‘Till makabert väsen’ from Sweden’s Bergraven. This shouldn’t be too great a surprise though. The band members are all involved in Stilla as well as individually other acts such as Lik, Deranged, De… Continue Reading →

Thormesis – The Sixth (MDD Records)

Thormesis were founded in 2006 and their latest album ‘The Sixth’ is appropriately titled as it is indeed their sixth opus. ‘The Sixth’ opens with ‘Sonnen’ which has mesmerising guitar hangs and then it kicks into a technical and clean… Continue Reading →

Hipoxia – Rvinae Ira, Creans Rvina Eo Tempore Est – Monvmentvm ab Khaos II (The Way Of The Hermit)

Blimey that’s a mouthful of a title and we haven’t even heard part 1. Luckily that does not seem to have mattered for the task at hand and first impressions of this Spanish group have been more than favourable. No… Continue Reading →

Brazil to me represents the epicentre of a true Metal fan, I don’t so much mean true in the sense of a ‘death to false Metal’ manner but rather true in terms of one whom has taken their time to… Continue Reading →

Sinmara – Hvísl Stjarnanna (Ván Records)

Iceland appears to have overtaken Finland in terms of metal bands per capita, and Sinmara are one of the more recognisable names hailing from the land of fire and ice. After causing quite a stir with their 2014 debut album… Continue Reading →

Fen – Stone and Sea (Eisenwald)

In honour of their region of origin, the EP “Stone and Sea” is “a tribute to the crumbling coastlines of Eastern England and the spirits that lie restless beneath the waters”. Incredibly this is Fen’s tenth release, including the first… Continue Reading →

Antre – Void (Withered Hand Records)

This Notts, Derby based quintet may have only emerged from their “Cave” relatively recently but the member’s collective roots spread a lot further back. They have been involved in plenty of bands whose names should be familiar to those keeping… Continue Reading →

10:13 – Result Of An Iron Age (Unclebaby Records)

This unknown quantity one man band generously arrived in CD form at Ave Noctum towers. Neil Carter is the man behind it and according to the blurb it it’s a depressive musical journey into humanity’s descent into a horrifying post-apocalyptic… Continue Reading →

Pernicion – Seek What They Sought (Osmose)

A five track EP for you this time, courtesy of a two-man terror team of British reprobates. Anil Carrier, known probably best for his time as the live drum kit destroyer in Anaal Nathrakh, and Dan Benton on Vocals. It… Continue Reading →
