Impalement – The Impalement (S/R)

A one-man brutal juggernaut is one of the latest additions to the blackened death metal underworld, and the Swiss mastermind, Beliath, has exploded onto the landscape with his technically astute first born, ‘The impalement’. Weighing in at just 7 tracks,… Continue Reading →

Blight – Temple of Wounds (Svart)

Blight have been crafting their blackened art for more than a decade in which time, as far as I can see, they’ve released about four EPs for your delight. Spinning through, things seemed to have reached a kind of brutalised… Continue Reading →

Xpus – In Umbra Mortis Sedent (Transcending Obscurity)

I’ve been busy ticking off some much-needed classics from my record collection, Priest, Alice Cooper, AC/DC, etc. Not to mention my current lust for shameful Prog, in the vein of Marillion namely and perhaps less embarrassingly Pink Floyd. Aside from… Continue Reading →

Yaldabaoth – That Which Whets the Saccharine Palate (Aesthetic Death)

This bombastically titled album from Alaskan band Yaldabaoth ’is a study of disgust, contempt, and mockery for all of religion’s existential justifications. The frenzied fury of the opening track “Fecund Godhead Deconstruction” puts us well and truly in the mood…. Continue Reading →

Earth Rot – Black Tides of Obscurity (Season of Mist)

Earth Rot have been doing their black metal thing since 2013, since when they’ve released two eps and now three albums. Although they’ve never come into my life previously, it’s clear that they’ve put themselves about a bit, having toured… Continue Reading →

Necrowretch – The Ones From Hell (Season Of Mist)

For many years I had a purist outlook on Blackened Death Metal, it was a mix that I didn’t really enjoy. Mainly it’s sad to say for the Black Metal element. Whilst I’ve always been a fan of Black Metal… Continue Reading →

God Dethroned – Illuminati (Metal Blade)

Boom, and these Dutch heavyweights have delivered another huge slab of blackened death metal to our feet. ‘Illuminati’ is huge, blasting and full of pulverising intentions, and a welcome release bridging a two-year gap since their last opus, ‘The World… Continue Reading →

Horned Almighty – To Fathom The Master’s Grand Design (Scarlet Records)

I have been enjoying these horny Danes output since 1st hearing their Devil’s Music back in 2006 and continued following the musical exploits of Helpig, Harm, S and newer bassist Haxen ever since. Theirs is a brand of quite accessible… Continue Reading →

Kommando Baphomet – Blood Gospels Of Satanic Inquisition (Godz Ov War)

Often times I think that if I had a shred of musical talent or indeed had any intention of playing music then I would front a War Metal band. I can’t think of anything more visceral than the Blackened Death… Continue Reading →

Hellsodomy – Morbid Cult (Saturnal)

Much like any other scene or even fandom for the wider entertainment spectrum Metal is vastly unknown to outsiders. It’s strikingly comical in fact just how little people know about the genre. I mean take the somewhat recent Tool outbursts… Continue Reading →

Bölzer – Lese Majesty (Lightning & Sons)

After keeping us waiting 8 years for their debut, ‘Hero’, it would appear Swiss duo, Bölzer, are in no hurry to provide a follow-up, opting instead for yet another EP with ‘Lese Majesty’. Having toured extensively, the majority of Bölzer’s… Continue Reading →

Nevalra – Conjure The Storm (M-Theory Audio)

I had the good fortune to catch Nevalra live recently when they rolled into town on the Carach Angren tour package, and as the opening band they proved themselves worthy visionaries for the black metal facet of the metal world…. Continue Reading →
