Atavist – III : Absolution (Candlelight)

Right after I started listening to “Absolution”, I was reminded of a character from Airplane proclaiming, “Looks like I picked the wrong day to give up glue sniffing”. By way of explanation, “Absolution” is four tracks of abject misery and… Continue Reading →

Shrapnel – Palace For The Insane (Candlelight)

Norwich based thrashers Shrapnel are back and much like their name, they are tearing through things without mercy, cutting down all in their path with furious riffs, scathing vocals and piercing lead guitar work. Last time out, “Raised On Decay”… Continue Reading →

Winterfylleth – The Reckoning Dawn (Candlelight / Spinefarm)

Ihsahn – Telemark (Candlelight)

It’s been a couple of years since we last heard from Ihsahn with last album Àmr and it seems his plans for 2020 are to release a couple of 5 track EP’s dedicated to his home country. As he is… Continue Reading →

Blasphemer – The Sixth Hour (Candlelight)

Do you ever get bands that just remind you of a time? I mean I guess that’s nostalgia, but I’m talking bands that may not have had a great impact on you but were just there, lurking in the shadows…. Continue Reading →

Witchsorrow – No Light, Only Fire (Candlelight)

Hampshire doomsters, Witchsorrow have delivered their best work yet with enough weight to drag you through the Earth’s crust. Prepare yourself. The band’s third opus finds them in fine form. “No Light, Only Fire” displays a progression and maturity that… Continue Reading →

Albums Of The Year 2014

  Pete Woods What a year as far as music was concerned, even if everything else is pretty much shit it is the tonic that keeps us going through it all and there has been no shortage of choice. It… Continue Reading →

Interview – Voices

It’s absolutely no secret that Voices second album London, a concept to our Capital city has completely blown me away. Mixing so much emotion, atmosphere and extremity into its cinematic hour long playing time it’s a real feast and a… Continue Reading →

Voices – London (Candlelight)

London our city! The place we live whilst loving and loathing it in equal measure. Or is it equal? Maybe not as I think of the emotions and descriptors it best sums up in me. Fear, paranoia, agitation, disillusionment, schizophrenia,… Continue Reading →

Winterfylleth – The Divination Of Antiquity (Candlelight)

I consider myself hugely privileged to have been given the last couple of Winterfylleth albums and splits to review: I’ve seen them grow up in public from a pretty raw but uniquely talented grouping, with a little pinch of early… Continue Reading →
