Blut Aus Nord

Schammasch – Hearts Of No Light (Prosthetic)

The Bible, I have learned, mentions a trumpet blast or rather multiple blasts performed by angels announcing the apocalypse, preceding the resurrection of the dead and the return of God to Earth. The angel on the cover of Schammasch’s new… Continue Reading →

Frostmoon Eclipse – Worse Weather To Come (Immortal Frost)

I really don’t think that any genre across history has as interesting a story as that of Black Metal. Even stripping it back to the bare bones of a Satanic presence in music is an exciting past time. Indeed this… Continue Reading →

Blut aus Nord – Hallucinogen (Debemur Morti)

What to say, when everything has already been said? I’m a bit late reviewing this. Everybody else has already done it, it seems. It’s quite a challenge, therefore, to find something original and new to say. But I’ll certainly try…. Continue Reading →

GosT – Valediction (Century Media)

Valediction opens with an absolute blast of keyboard driven black metal in ‘Relentless Passing’, a total howl which then drops into some gentler darkwave and out again into the harsh industrial landscape. Yes I’m back with GosT again where genre… Continue Reading →

Temple Koludra – Seven! Sirens! To A Lost Archetype (Transcending Obscurity)

Although founded in 2010, Temple Koludra are a relatively young band regarding releases and fan base. However, the people behind it, though preferring to remain unknown, are very likely experienced musicians. The album at hand, the band’s first after two… Continue Reading →

YERÛŠELEM – The Sublime (Debemur Morti)

OK for once let’s cut to the chase and go backwards. I had real problems with this album. Try as I might and with play after play I failed utterly to make any headway to get to the inside of… Continue Reading →

Ars Magna Umbrae – Lunar Ascension (I, Voidhanger Records)

One gentleman from Poland is responsible for Ars Magna Umbrae. The follow up to a 2017 EP “Through Lunar Gateways”, “Lunar Ascension” sends us crashing through worlds in a blackly ambient way. To some extent I am reminded of a… Continue Reading →

Outre – Hollow Earth (Debemur Morti)

Outre have been out of the spotlight since releasing “Ghost Chants” in 2015, and having finally recruited a full-time vocalist in 2017 now follow up on that debut. The guest vocals from Stawrogin on “Ghost Chants” were, frankly, stylistically all… Continue Reading →

P.H.O.B.O.S – Phlogiston Catharsis (Transcending Obscurity)

My only previous encounter with French industrial death/doom outfit P.H.O.B.O.S was their Triunity split with Blut Aus Nord a few years back, which should at least give you an idea about the kind of headfuck you’re going to encounter here…. Continue Reading →

Essenz – Manes Impetus (Amor Fati Productions)

Heavy and industrial …. it doesn’t have to be German but it is. Dirty rumblings and heinous growls get us under way on “Manes Impetus”, Essenz’s third album. Essenz are known for “bursts of transformation” in their music. What this… Continue Reading →

Reverorum ib Malacht – Im Ra Distare Summum Soveris Seris Vas innoble (AnnapurnA)

Why not have a nightmare? That’s what this album seems to be about. This wasn’t unexpected after the Swedish black metal band’s previous album “Ter Agios Numini “ (2017). The sounds are intriguing as well as disturbing. Eeriness prevails. Merciless… Continue Reading →

Darkeater – Что помнит лес (Wolfspell Records)

Apathy, darkness and depression are the reported lyrical themes for this duo from Russia, and this is apparent in abundance in this latest release, ‘Что помнит лес’ Elijah and Kolodum collaborate with smoothness and precision, and create a whole mystical… Continue Reading →
