Blut Aus Nord

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 →

Throane – Plus Une Main A Mordre (Debemur Morti)

Apparently Plus Une Main A Mordre (Another Hand to Bite) “seeks balance between the struggle and the letting go, passing from chaos to quiet in revelatory circular motions”. Well, I certainly got the struggle behind it. The large scale, sweeping,… Continue Reading →

Ars Magna Umbrae – Through Lunar Gateways (Hellthrasher)

Ready for a “manifestation of the Chthonic forces of Death and a sonic portal to the Nightside?” Well just as well as that is exactly what we have here courtesy of Ars Magna Umbrae from Poland, the work of D.A… Continue Reading →

Dodecahedron – Kwintessens (Season Of Mist)

Dodecahedron is almost a by-word for complexity for its own sake – a three dimensional 12-sided die that, I read someone point out, is only used by nerdy role playing gamers (yep, me too back in those more carefree days)… Continue Reading →

Lorn – With Claws Arrayed (I, Voidhanger)

It’s been more than three years since Lorn made its mark with Subconscious Metamorphosis – appropriately enough its first outing on that most fitting of labels for avant-garde black metal I, Voidhanger. The band had hinted during its previous full-length,… Continue Reading →

The Ominous Circle – Appalling Ascension (Osmose)

“A burning black sphere of sinuous torment” is the offer from Portugal’s The Ominous Circle. You may gather, correctly, that dark ambience is at the centre of this work. Chasmic voids and echoing deathly growls dominate “Heart Girt with a… Continue Reading →

Fides Inversa – Rite of Inverse Incarnation (World Terror Committee)

Fides Inversa threw a few people with the change of pace between their first and second albums even though both were finely distilled black metal class. The debut was an unhinged white knuckle ride that felt like an unholy marriage… Continue Reading →

Liber Null – I, The Serpent (Osmose)

Thorns (drums) who seems to head up this band has his fingers in multiple bands with Blut Aus Nord being the most recognised. Ably assisted by Ades (guitar and bass ) and Psaalm on vocals this debut release is packed… Continue Reading →
