Sarke – Gastwerso (Indie Recordings)

Album number 6 for Sarke and they don’t seem to be letting up. The past black and roll has given way to more of an epic groove driven sound that still drips icy evilness from every pore.  The fact that Sarke… Continue Reading →

Whiskey Ritual – Black Metal Ultras (Folter Records)

Filthy, raw, drug & alcohol obsessed black metal with added Satan & hookers….. sounds fucking great doesn’t it…. and guess what, it is! These Italian animals are coming in your ears with this, their fourth album and the follow up… Continue Reading →

Slegest – Introvert (Dark Essence Records)

Since 2010 and over the course of two previous albums, Stig Ese has steered Slegest on their wonderfully idiosyncratic course towards black ‘n’ roll nirvana. As I have mentioned before, Slegest are a genuine hybrid of black and heavy metal… Continue Reading →

Void – Jettatura (Ladlo Productions)

If you are gonna thrash do it blackly said someone very sensibly once, or perhaps it was just me. That’s the way I like it though baby and a good dose of black n’ roll always hits the mark and… Continue Reading →

Vreid – Lifehunger (Season Of Mist)

Tragedy naturally hits everyone at some point in their life, yet it is equally natural that a similar sort of tragedy should strike artists also. The icy grip of death has no limitations, taking from us legends, visionaries and pioneers… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Acârash – In Chaos Becrowned (Dark Essence Records)

“For fans of Rotting Christ, Darkthrone, Satyricon, Khold” reads the press release that accompanies ‘In Chaos Becrowned’, the debut album from Norwegian occult act Acârash. Maybe…but it does become somewhat clear as you listen to this album, that this band… Continue Reading →

Sarke – Viige Urh (Indie)

In 2016 Sarke released Bogefod a concept album built around a millennia old Viking legend involving a zombie king. It was as fantastic as it sounds. So now Noctruno Culto, Sarke, Anders Hunstad, Asgeir Mickelson and Steinar Gundersen are back… Continue Reading →

Volker – S/T EP (Kaotoxin)

Not much to go on here, just a CD with no details at all and under 12 minutes of music. Luckily the label had told us what they had sent over in a list and we were able to fill… Continue Reading →

Urgehal – Aeons in Sodom (Season of Mist)

Anyone who thought black metal legends Urgehal would dream of serving up half measures on their final album need only look at the guest list. Like a Who’s Who of Norwegian black metal, the list includes Darkthrone’s Nocturno Culto, Hoest… Continue Reading →

Whiskey Ritual – Blow With The Devil (Art Of Propaganda)

This is more like it. Been listening to a lot of technical death metal for the boss lately and, well, I’m all tech’d out. Much as I appreciate the awesome musicianship of some of these bands they can sometimes lack… Continue Reading →

Vreid – Sólverv (Indie)

I was always a great fan of Windir and when in unfortunate circumstances Vreid was formed out of their ashes, I followed them too. Vreid’s first album “Kraft” (2004) continued the Windir approach where fresh modern black metal found an… Continue Reading →
