Wardaemonic – Acts Of Repentance (Transcending Obscurity)

Not being familiar with this lot from Australia other than knowing they have put out a few albums, I was kind of expecting some rabid bestial filth somehow. What I got however whilst no less aggressive was…more focussed. The album… Continue Reading →

Live Suffer Die – A Voice From Beyond Death (Moribund)

There’s no way of sugar-coating band names and song title in these dangerous times. It’s the nature of the beast and all we can really do is look upon things with a sense of gallows humour. Live Suffer Die were… Continue Reading →

Death, Void, Terror – To The Great Monolith II (Repose Records)

I know we (well mainly me actually) make the occasional quip about receiving the new soundtrack to the apocalypse but fuck me has it not got even more real over the last couple of weeks? No need to elaborate, I’m… Continue Reading →

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 →
