Sathanas – Necrohymns (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Sathanas – Necrohymns (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Well here’s a band that has completely slipped by me over their 30 year existence during which time they have released nine albums and 16 various other releases meaning I have lived under a proverbial rock it seems as they now release their tenth full.. Read More

Moonreich – Fugue (Les Acteurs de l’Ombre Productions)

I wasn’t sure what a fugue is other than the fact it’s associated with Bach. Well to cut a long story short, it’s about counterpoint and repetition. The song “Frère Jacques” is an example of it through the way it comes back on itself. Moonreich.. Read More
Deus Vermin - Monument to Decay (FHED)

Deus Vermin – Monument to Decay (FHED)

As a local lad I’m not sure how I’ve managed to miss this Leeds bunch and their misanthropic excretions, but this is something I need to rectify in the near future as this EP puts them up there as a gem in the Yorkshire, and.. Read More
VELD - S.I.N. (Listenable Records)

VELD – S.I.N. (Listenable Records)

Spawned In Nothingness is the fourth album by this Belarussian trio, and it’s pretty straight forward, fast and extremely aggressive death metal, with a touch of atmospherics to keep it interesting. The intro “The Beginning of Madness” lulls you in with a rather gentle wash.. Read More
Arallu – Desert Battles (Raven Music)

Arallu – Desert Battles (Raven Music)

My recollection of Arallu’s previous album “Six” (2017) is of colourful and even spiritual elements within a black metal soundscape. “Desert Battles” is in fact a remixed version of an album, which the band first released in 2009. It’s evident that Arallu are out to.. Read More
Nekrokraft – Servants (The Sign Records)

Nekrokraft – Servants (The Sign Records)

Swedish black metallers Nekrokraft have just unleashed their first full-length album ‘Servants’…And it’s a mixed bag to be fair. Following on from the 2016 mini-album ‘Will o’ Wisp’, ‘Servants’ is equal parts black/thrash and symphonic metal, that unfortunately fails to fully commit successfully to any.. Read More
Pact -  Enigmata (Moribund)

Pact – Enigmata (Moribund)

This is the third full length album from the..er..enigmatic occult US trio Pact, and actually my third encounter with them too having been shredded by their ultra aggressive début The Dragon Lineage Of Satan, and pleased by the follow up groundwork on their 2014 album.. Read More
Goath – II: Opposition (Ván)

Goath – II: Opposition (Ván)

I can just imagine the scene down at the Goath hell-bunker when finished copies of the last album arrived – debut Luciferian Goath Ritual. Goathammer: ‘Muerte, can I speak to you for a minute. We just got the album back from the printers over in.. Read More

Crescent – The Order Of Amenti (Listenable)

Formed in 1998, originally as a black metal band, Crescent are one of the oldest extreme metal bands hailing from the country which inspired the technically gifted, but boring as fuck American death metal band Nile. Being the only Egyptian metal group to tour in.. Read More
Bleeding Gods – Dodekathlon (Nuclear Blast)

Bleeding Gods – Dodekathlon (Nuclear Blast)

‘Dodekathlon’ is the second release from Bleeding Gods, and it is an hour of epic, blackened death metal, which is all delivered in an intricate 12 tracks of pure power and aggression. This opus has different influences in the equation, the most notable being the.. Read More
Belphegor – Totenritual  (Nuclear Blast)

Belphegor were born in Austria, in 1991, and came under the moniker of Betrayer, before finally sticking with the present name in 1993. In Demonology, Belphegor is a demon, and more specifically, one of the seven princes of hell. Also according to Peter Binsfield, in.. Read More
Atrexial – Souverain (Godz Ov War Productions)

Atrexial – Souverain (Godz Ov War Productions)

When you think of Spain, you probably think of sun-drenched beaches, paella and sangria rather than oppressive death metal, but that may be about to change as Barcelona’s Atrexial well and truly stick their head above the parapet, Having completed their line up in May.. Read More
