Brain Stem- Symptoms Of Annihilation-Stage 2 (S/R)

Years ago I was dead against downloading music whether legal or illegal and whilst I’ve held fast to my views on illegal downloading I have to say that I’ve become a sucker for the digital download. Especially with sites like… Continue Reading →

Smoulder – Dream Quest Ends (Cruz Del Sur)

These Canadian’s are no strangers to these pages; their epic doom laden metal hit a sweet spot last year. This release is an EP with two new tracks, a cover version and the three demo tracks from their 2019 demo…. Continue Reading →

Beneath The Massacre – Fearmonger (Century Media)

Deathcore, or diet Death Metal as I like to call it, has been a mark upon the Metal world since its inception. My feelings on the genre have gone from love to hate to somewhere in the middle over the… Continue Reading →

Nachtterror – Judgement (Hypnotic Dirge)

Symphonic Black Metal band Nachtterror…no, hang on, merely using the term “Symphonic Black Metal” does not do Nachtterror justice. OK, as labels go, it’s not a million miles away and yes there are plenty of Symphonic Black Metal elements to… Continue Reading →

Maeskyyrn – Interlude (Hypnotic Dirge)

Ooo, here’s an oddity. This is the debut full length by Quebec based black metal band Maeskyyrn, but I have to say it doesn’t at first sight seem to fit in with the stuff I usually listen to from that… Continue Reading →

Unreqvited – Mosaic II: la déteste et la détresse (Prophecy Productions)

Released on the same day as the phenomenal split with Sylvaine ‘Time Without End’, ‘Mosaic II’ is the fourth full length from Canadian one man project Unreqvited, and is the alter-ego to the previously released ‘Mosaic I’. Whereas ‘Mosaic I’… Continue Reading →

Sylvaine & Unreqvited – Time Without End (Prophecy Productions)

On the one hand, this is an unlikely pairing, but on the other it makes perfect sense and I know this is a bold statement but I don’t recall a split release ever being this coherent or synergistic. ‘Time Without… Continue Reading →

Trépas – ‘L’héritage Du Monde’ (Sepulchral Productions)

When I saw that Trépas was made up of veterans from Québec’s Death Metal scene, specifically Morgue and Outre-Tombe, I fully expected this to be another pulverising death metal bulldozer. How wrong I was, for ‘L’héritage du monde’ is a… Continue Reading →

Despised Icon – Purgatory (Nuclear Blast)

This is a strange one and I tell you why. It’s strange because there is much mumbling, tutting, sideways looks, eye rolling, slagging off, looking down at etc. etc. of the genre known as Deathcore. What is Deathcore may you… Continue Reading →

Völur / Amber Asylum – Breaker of Rings / Blood Switch (Prophecy)

Potentially we have here a temple of weirdness and melancholy as we have a combination of Canadian “doom experimentalists” Völur and San Franciscan “neo-classical ambient collective” Amber Asylum. Reading up on the background, the two bands involved recognise the same… Continue Reading →

Ossuaire – Dernier Chants (Sepulchral Productions)

“Premier Chants”, this Canadian band’s debut full length comprises the first of a duology concerning the downfall of Christianity according to the background info. What is surprising about this is that the first part was released in late April 2019,… Continue Reading →

Necronomicon – Unus (Season Of Mist)

As a total Death Metal devotee I get very excited about even the smallest of artists releasing new material. What I mean to say is I’m normally that guy who gets excited about new albums from bands like Necrophiliac or… Continue Reading →
