The Ossuary – Southern Funeral (Supreme Chaos)

Forged in 2014, this impressive Italian Heavy/Doom Metal band unleash their second album through Supreme Chaos and continue to build on their impressive debut. To elaborate on that Heavy/Doom Metal tag, we’re talking Spiritual Beggars/Mushroom River Band/The Quill type territory,… Continue Reading →

Dun Ringill – Welcome (Argonauta Records)

Right. So here are some things I have discovered since doing a google search on the terms “Dun Ringill”: 1) Dun Ringill is the name of a Scottish Iron age fort on the Isle of Skye. 2) It is also… Continue Reading →

Seer – Volume 6 (Artoffact Records)

Seer are a quintet from Vancouver BC -why do people always put BC is there another Vancouver – I neither know nor care- what I do care about is the big noise these 5 boys make.  (Edit – I have just… Continue Reading →

The Sabbathian – Latum Alterum (Svart Records)

So, hands up class, what kind of metal might we be dealing with when the band is called “The Sabbathian” ? Doom metal? Correct-a-mundo, albeit probably not quite in the vein that you’d be expecting. There are no Iommi-rip-off riffing… Continue Reading →

Black Oath – Behold the Abyss (High Roller Records)

When I saw the blurb for this in the pile at Ave Noctum towers, (a huge obsidian castle, forever shrouded in fog and under perpetual moonlight – just outside Tooting Bec), I knew that I had to give it a… Continue Reading →

Northern Crown – S/T (S/R)

Korpiklaani – Kulkija (Nuclear Blast)

I’m sure the band won’t take it as an insult if I state that people know what to expect from a Korpiklaani album. It’s part of their appeal, a following based around their own unique brand of Folk Metal. And… Continue Reading →

Mist – Free Me of the Sun (Soulseller)

Ljubljana in Slovenia is not a city that springs to mind when it comes to Doom. In fact the only reason I have heard of this capital is because Laibach erupted from there decades ago. Unlike their fellow country folk… Continue Reading →

Besvarjelsen – Vallmo (Suicide Records)

Something a bit different this time. Besvarjelsen (“conjuring”, in Swedish, language fans) are a Swedish doom band, featuring luscious female vocals, and a vibe so warm and relaxed it’s like sipping a quality whiskey by an open fire during the… Continue Reading →

Age Of Taurus – The Colony Slain (Rise Above Records)

Bizarre as it sounds, but it has been an all too long five years since the rather excellent debut by Age Of Taurus, namely the doom laden majesty that was ‘Desperate Souls of Tortured Times’, a fact that surprised me… Continue Reading →

Estate – Mirrorland (Mighty Music)

Russian Symphonic Melodic Metal band Estate have had a bit of a re-assess in the past 4 years. “Fantasia” was a more than credible Symphonic/Melodic/Power Metal debut, relying as it did on good tunes and memorable melodies, but possibly lacking… Continue Reading →

King Goat – Debt of Aeons (Aural Music)

Since 2012 and the departure of Robert Lowe, Candlemass have only released a single EP, albeit rumours abound of new work linked to some game or the other; well, what does that have to do with new release by Brighton’s… Continue Reading →
