Blackened Death

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 →

Hate – Auric Gates of Veles (Metal Blade Records)

The music of Hate is the epitome of Polish death metal. Discuss. Having been around for 28 years, the warmongering isn’t over yet. “Auric Gates of Veles” is the band’s eleventh album. I think it’s the sustained contempt which is… Continue Reading →

Eridu – Lugalbanda (S/R)

Now why German band Eridu should be concerned with the legend of Lugalbanda from the ancient times of Mesopotamia is unclear. Even Rick Wakeman never managed that one. To be fair, the band clearly don’t work in half measures and… Continue Reading →

Thorybos – The Foul And The Flagrant (Bleak Bone Mortualia)

There’s nothing better than a short, concise and on point PR statement rather than a gushing overblown essay on why you should listen to a band. That’s exactly what we got here as an introduction to German black deathsters Thorybos… Continue Reading →

Sathamel – Horror Vacui (S/R)

Once more something stirs in what I am now convinced is a remarkable UKBM scene. It seems to be growing particularly strong in Wales and the North or England at the moment and it’s the latter from where black/death outfit… Continue Reading →

Belzebubs – Pantheon Of The Nightside Gods (Century Media)

I’ve been waiting for this album for months, after all, I have been a fan of the band for more than 2 years now, after starting to read their adventures on http://belzebubsofficial.tumblr.com before finally getting to watch the “Blackened Call”… Continue Reading →

AntropomorphiA – Merciless Savagery (Metal Blade)

Naked lady on cover and no doubt very cold by the looks of it and plenty more uses of the letter v instead ov f, yep AntropomorphiA are back. It seem like only yesterday since we were discussing Sermon Ov… Continue Reading →

In Shadows And Dust – Enlightened By Darkness (Redefining Darkness)

At the beginnings of Black Metal, most specifically within the Norwegian lands the collaboration of both Black and Death Metal would likely be seen as drastically abhorrent despite several bands in the scene showing a close allegiance to the genre… Continue Reading →

Nirnaeth – From Shadow to Flesh (Malpermesita Records)

Nirnaeth are now into their 16th Year and bring along their brand of blackened, technical death metal focusing again on Satanism and the occult. ‘From Shadow To Flesh’ is their 3rd full length, in a career which has also been… Continue Reading →

Ultha – The Inextricable Wandering (Century Media)

Ultha have been playing their trade together since 2015, releasing two acclaimed albums alongside several EPs and split releases, and this quartet from Cologne now unveil their third full length. The six songs here span a mighty 65 minutes in… Continue Reading →

Behemoth – I Loved You at Your Darkest (Nuclear Blast)

No longer as prolific a studio band as they once were, the release of a new Behemoth album is considered a big deal given its scarcity over the past decade. The band are never been far from the public eye… Continue Reading →

Infernal Execrator – Obsolete Ordinance (Pulverised Records)

Whilst this may only be the second full length by this Singaporean act they also have a handful of splits during their decade or so existence. Occasionally you get black metal that is so full of malice, so malignant that… Continue Reading →
