Pa Vesh En – Pyrefication (Iron Bonehead)

The opening track ‘…In The Ghostly Haze’ from this Belarusian band rolls into a bleak life like Skepticism meeting Nortt on a last frostbitten walk through the woods; crushingly downbeat, but like frost it forces open cracks you might not… Continue Reading →

None – Damp Chill Of Life (Hypnotic Dirge)

Although I’m writing about this in the summertime the Damp Chill Of Life is never far away waiting to cast its arthritic pall on proceedings. Masters of depressive and atmospheric doomed blackness, USA based shadowy entities None are back with… Continue Reading →

Kval – Laho (Hypnotic Dirge Records)

So it’s back to life, emptiness and chaos from the solo artist Kval from Finland who professes to a liking for Burzum. This is a follow up to his impressively bleak self-titled release of 2017. “Laho” comprises five weighty pieces…. Continue Reading →

Dictator – Dysangelist (Aesthetic Death)

Having recently explored the new, with the cracking debut album from Voz De Nenhum ‘Sublimation’ it is time to delve right back to the past of one of the musicians from it, Dictator. This is a one man project from… Continue Reading →

Mork – Det Svarte Juv (Peaceville)

As I remarked on their previous album Thomas Eriksen’s Mork are one of those bands that manage the impossible of being both very old school Norwegian black metal, but also very much of this time and space and forward looking…. Continue Reading →

Mord A Stigmata – Dreams of Quiet Places (Pagan)

I very much liked Mord A Stigmata’s last offering “Hope”. This was black metal of the most sinister kind. Now comes the Polish band’s fifth album. Following the spine-chilling Burzumesque ambience of the opening section, harsh and deliberate black metal… Continue Reading →

Lords Of Chaos – Jonas Åkerlund (Arrow Films)

It’s always interesting when a film is announced or still in pre-production and everyone is up in arms about it. I guess the most common time is when it is a remake and people who treasure the original hate the… Continue Reading →

Heaume Mortal – Solstices (LADLO Productions)

The trio behind French act Heaume Mortal come from a background embedded in sludge through work with bands such as Cowards, Eibon and Colossus Of Destiny who multi-instrumentalist Guillaume Morlat has all been involved in. The last album by Eibon… Continue Reading →

Vardan – Unholy Lightless Summer (Moribund)

And here we have Vardan back yet again and doing things somewhat differently. This is an album of him being jolly and seasonal covering favourite songs for this time of year. We have interpretations of Mungo Jerry’s ‘In The Summertime,’… Continue Reading →

NortherN – Desolate Ways to Ultima Thule (Moribund Records)

In previous times, Northern went by the name ‘Cold Northern Vengeance’ and although I have a couple of their albums, they didn’t really hit my radar. However, I was interested to hear this new incarnation, especially with the press release… 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 →

Onirism – Falling Moon (Naturmacht)

With moons and skies and stars and cosmic whales featuring in the titles, there’s more than a suggestion of a celestial journey about this album. Vrath, the person at the centre of this symphonic ambient black metal project from France,… Continue Reading →
