Autopsy – Puncturing The Grotesque (Peaceville)

Autopsy – Puncturing The Grotesque (Peaceville)

This seven track EP is Autopsy celebrating their thirtieth year as a band. Thirty gore soaked, depraved and sick as fuck years. I make no bones about it, Autopsy are one of my personal favourite bands of any metal genre and their originality and influence.. Read More

Damnation Festival – Leeds University Union 4/11/17

As I approached the University Union in Leeds, on a cold November morning, I could feel the air of anticipation growing, for I was about to embark on the annual bonfire weekend extravaganza that is the Damnation Festival. There were crowds of black clad figures,.. Read More

Paradise Lost – Medusa (Nuclear Blast)

Now, if you thought that the veteran gothic/doom metalers had gone back to basics with 2015’s ‘The Plague Within’, wait until you hear this gnarly little fucker. Almost completely devoid of PL’s more grandiose leanings, ‘Medusa’ is certainly their heaviest album to date, but as.. Read More

Witherscape - The Northern Sanctuary (Century Media)

Witherscape – The Northern Sanctuary (Century Media)

Anyone who read my review of Witherscape’s debut (rattling around elsewhere on Ave Noctum) knows the respect I already had for Dan Swanö as a musician, vocalist, producer and all-round smart-arse, but it was on that debut that he teamed up with fellow multi-instrumentalist Ragnar.. Read More
Katatonia - The Fall Of Hearts (Peaceville)

Katatonia – The Fall Of Hearts (Peaceville)

I have followed Sweden’s Katatonia religiously for over two decades and they have given me some of the most brilliant memories within music during that time either with landmark releases or just awe inspiring live performances whether electric or acoustic. Each album Katatonia has released.. Read More
Post Mortem – God with Horns (Great Dane)

Post Mortem – God with Horns (Great Dane)

Experimental death metal is always a risky path for any band to go down. Ultimately only the fans will decide whether throwing some atmospheric, film score-esque segments into an otherwise brutal album will add some depth and variety to it or make it flop harder.. Read More

Party Canon – Bong Hit Hospitalisation (Gore House)

Party Canon – Bong Hit Hospitalisation (Gore House)

With a name like Party Canon, one could easily think that you would be presented with some sugar and spice pop punk band, ready to sing about the joys of proms, milkshakes and some old shite. However what you are instead presented with is the.. Read More
