Blut Aus Nord

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 →

Nightmarer – Cacophony Of Terror (Season Of Mist)

What do you get if you cross a member of Success Will Write Apocalypse Across the Skies with one of The Ocean and an ex from War From A Harlots mouth? Nope there’s no punch-line here just a trio with… 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 →

OPHE – Litteras Ad Tristia Maestrum Solitude (My Kingdom Music)

Not much to go on here, but I did establish that OPHE is a one man avant-garde black metal outfit, and the one man likes people like DHG, Blut aus Nord, Manes and Anorexia Nervosa. So that’s good. As for… Continue Reading →

Almyrkvi – Umbra (Ván)

What is even more shocking than Iceland’s recent rampant assault on the black metal scene (yes, we’re all still going on about it) is that it took so bloody long. I mean, sure Norway has the fjords and the mountains,… Continue Reading →

Blut Aus Nord – Deus Salutis Maea (Debemur Morti Productions)

In my (perhaps not-so-humble) opinion, Blut Aus Nord mastermind Vindsval is one of the most under-heralded geniuses within the black metal scene. For over two decades, he has quietly gone about his business under the BaN moniker to craft some… Continue Reading →
