T.O.M.B. – Thin The Veil (Dark Essence)

Not to be confused with the many other tombs littering the metal graveyard this one are based in the US where they were formed over two decades ago. I remember them from previous Candlelight efforts such as Fury Nocturnus released… Continue Reading →

Borgne – 8 (Avantgarde Music)

Firstly let’s get this out the way regarding the album title which is actually “∞” 8 is not only a number but a symbol, symbol of infinity,.” Putting it as illustrated properly is gonna screw up with the WordPress URL,… Continue Reading →

GoST – Possessor (Blood Music)

I think this is the second or third album by the entity that is GoST but my first encounter, and it is a little hard to tell as there appear to be a whole collection of EPs and stuff online…. Continue Reading →

TAOS – Passion Sodomy Terror (Osmose)

It all points to a grim experience. TAOS, or The Arrival of Satan to give their Sunday name, have been creating “radical black metal art” since 1999, having first formed to create a self-proclaimed nihilistic soundtrack for the end of… Continue Reading →

Deathcode Society – Eschatonizer (Osmose)

After a 6 year gap between the two track demo “Ite Missa Est” and their first full length, no-one could accuse Deathcode Society of rushing things. So was it worth the wait? When I first pressed play I thought that… Continue Reading →

Throne Of Molok – Beat Of Apocalypse (Eternal Tombs)

Despite its somewhat unwieldy title I really enjoyed Italian band Throne Of Molok’s debut album ‘Chtonian A.E.O.N. 1010011010.’ Hell it even arrived with a cardboard cut-out gas mask suggesting cyber terror was about to be unleashed and indeed it lived… Continue Reading →

Invertia – Another Scheme Of The Wicked (Ohm Resistance)

I had my beady eye on this for a while from the never ending list of digital review requests, wanting to get at it but not having the time. The allure of a biog mentioning Gorgoroth and Skinny Puppy in… Continue Reading →

Black Metal Evolution Of The Cult – Dayal Patterson (Feral House)

It’s fair to say that most books and indeed films tackling the subject of black metal are woefully inadequate. They are either put together by outsiders trying to look in and not fully understanding or integrating with the subject matter,… Continue Reading →

Mysticum – Lost Masters Of The Universe (Peaceville)

Our paths should certainly have crossed a lot more as Mysticum are innovators who were responsible for combing two of my favourite types of music namely black metal (of the Norwegian persuasion) and industrial. However this is the only recorded… Continue Reading →

Bitter Peace, Esoterica, Krieg & The Many – New World Black Metal (Plastik Music)

Ah the irony of having a 4 track split piece of vinyl before me digitally to review. Naturally if you have one of those old gramophone whatchamacallits lying around you can add this to your wax collection if you so… Continue Reading →

Vorkreist – Sigil Whore Christ (Agonia)

For me, with this album, Vorkreist have completely lost it. With ‘it’ I mean the vibe of it all, what made them stand-out, what made them interesting. The black metal aggression has been replaced with a polished modern death metal… Continue Reading →
