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 speckled with a demo, E.P.. Read More

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 length, taking the listener on.. Read More
Behemoth – I Loved You at Your Darkest (Nuclear Blast)

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 though; frontman Nergal inadvertently carved.. Read More
Infernal Execrator – Obsolete Ordinance (Pulverised Records)

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 it oozes hostility that is.. Read More
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)

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
