Horizon Ablaze - The Weight of a Thousand Suns (Leviatan Diger)

Horizon Ablaze – The Weight of a Thousand Suns (Leviatan Diger)

Avant-garde extreme metal albums seem to be following me around so far this year, and here’s another one from Norway’s Horizon Ablaze. “The Weight of a Thousand Suns” is a “journey through the human psyche and a deep dive into the man’s innermost fears and.. Read More
Vardan – Nostalgia: Archive Of Failures IV-VI (Moribund)

Vardan – Nostalgia: Archive Of Failures IV-VI (Moribund)

I really hope Vardan is getting some sort of recognition for all his work, there’s simply no way you can say he is not trying and he has such a huge body of it the real problem is that someone wanting to listen just won’t.. Read More
Ofdrykkja - Irrfärd (Avantgarde)

Ofdrykkja – Irrfärd (Avantgarde)

Ofdrykkja has come a long way since its first release, the beguiling (if that’s the right word for a self-confessed depressive suicidal black metal band) and harrowing A Life Worth Losing in 2014. Back then things were strictly lo-fi but that only served to amplify.. Read More
Nortt – Endelight (Avantgarde Music)

Nortt – Endelight (Avantgarde Music)

It seems that this year there has been no shortage of kvlt edge-lords thinking it is clever releasing albums over the festering period. It’s not like most of them will find their way into the few remaining record shops around so guess there’s nothing stopping.. Read More
Iku Turso - The Great Tower (Wolfspell)

Iku Turso – The Great Tower (Wolfspell)

I do like a band who do exactly what it says on the tin. “Smell of black metal 90-95” goes the instruction on Iku Turso’s debut and there it is in all its pungent glory. Seriously. This is an international four piece with feet in.. Read More
Vardan – Nostalgia: Archive Of Failures I-III (Moribund)

Vardan – Nostalgia: Archive Of Failures I-III (Moribund)

“Bloody Vardan,” are words I found myself muttering a lot in 2015. It seemed like every time I reviewed one of the Sicilian artist’s albums another turned up almost immediately and to say he is prolific would be an understatement and a half. It has.. Read More
Lustre – Still Innocence (Nordvis)

Lustre – Still Innocence (Nordvis)

If I’ve read this right, this album is an antidote to the valueless world we live in, and a return to a world of innocence, if such a thing existed of course. The therefore appropriately titled “Still Innocence” is Sweden’s one man project Lustre’s sixth.. Read More
JoDöden - Sittandes i sjön med vatten över huvudet (Nordvis Produktion)

JoDöden – Sittandes i sjön med vatten över huvudet (Nordvis Produktion)

When I came across a site called Depressive Visions, which featured this work, it gave more than a clue what to expect. The gentleman behind this ambient, nature-driven work is from Sweden, and what is evident is that through his music he is sharing his.. Read More
Fornhem – Ett Fjarran Kall (Trollmusic)

Fornhem – Ett Fjarran Kall (Trollmusic)

Fornhem from Sweden have released their full length Debut “Ett Fjarran Kall” (A Call from Afar) and thus entered the Black/Folk fray.  With only four tracks and the album clocking in at 46 minutes this is an album to be indulged rather than blasted through... Read More
Kval – S/T (Hypnotic Dirge Records)

Kval – S/T (Hypnotic Dirge Records)

The sleeve notes usefully tell us that Kval’s debut album “includes slow, agonising material from 2013 to 2016”. This album was originally conceived in 2015 but under the mantle of Khaossos. Life, emptiness and chaos are what drives this one man atmospheric black metal project.. Read More
Janvier – S/T (Wolfspell)

Janvier – S/T (Wolfspell)

Dunno but I always find it a little…well, humbling when a band sends in a full, beautifully designed digipak CD of their debut EP release. It at least should give the reviewer pause to think about what this music means to the artist. The artists.. Read More
Hermóðr – Hädanfärd (Wolfspell)

Hermóðr – Hädanfärd (Wolfspell)

Swedish musician Rafn has been involved in no shortage of bands through his musical journey, from Abysmal Silence through Endless Woods and even with a bit of Sodomizing Christ going down. Hermóðr along with Mist and Deadlife seem to be his current on-going musical outlets.. Read More
