Cryfemal – Eterna Oscuridad (Immortal Frost Productions)

Wow is it really four years since Ebola and drummer Bornyhake Ormenos poured their insatiable scorn on the earth with 2016’s ‘D6s6nti6rro’, an album I reviewed for Ave Noctum here. Indeed it’s hard to believe that they could even match… Continue Reading →

Green Carnation – Leaves Of Yesteryear (Season Of Mist)

It was a sad day back in 2007 when Norwegian Metal band Green Carnation decided to call it a day. No-one before or since has ever truly captured their progressive avant-garde dark metal style in the same way, yet bowing… Continue Reading →

Bezwering – Aan De Wormen Overgeleverd (Ván Records)

Translating to ‘Handed Over To The Worms’ this debut full length by Dutch black metallers Bezwering is a fine addition to this year’s seething black metal cauldron. Formed like a phoenix rising from the ashes out the now defunct Wederganger… Continue Reading →

Jordablod – The Cabinet of Numinous Song (Iron Bonehead)

Messy, chaotic, raucous, rampant and encrusted with filth. Sounds like my kinda party, and also the kind of party that Iron Bonehead have been hosting for years. No surprise then that Jordablod from Malmo have come to the gathering with… Continue Reading →

Svarttjern – Shame Is Just A Word (Soulseller)

It might be a new year but it’s still winter, long may it reign! For in the colder months my lust for Black Metal grows. I’m like a Corpse-painted hibernating animal who only emerges to the sound of Battles In… Continue Reading →

Hellehond – Verslonden (Iron Bonehead)

I am assuming that the translation of this Dutch band’s moniker is simply Hell Hound or Hound Of Hell, either way it works for me as this act contains Bob Bagchus on drums under the name of Plechelmus. Added to… Continue Reading →

Sjukdom – Stridshymner Og Dodssalmer (Osmose)

Sjukdom are as barren and bleak as the Norwegian landscape thy hail from. This is the bands second release, ‘Stridshymner Og Dodssalmer’, and is not to be confused with releases by bands with the same moniker from Sweden and USA…. Continue Reading →

Djevelkult – Når Avgrunnen Åpnes (Saturnal Records)

The symbiotic relationship between Norway and black metal is one that has existed for about 30 years and still continues to produce quality bands and if you go to the Inferno festival in Oslo you can certainly vouch for my… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival 2018 – Day 4, Oslo Norway 1/4/18

Easter Sunday brought the fourth and final day of this year’s Inferno Festival, and another sold out day with a mouthwatering line up was in store. Norwegian black metal band Djevel got the evening underway and they wasted no time delivering their… Continue Reading →

Sex Dumpster – Lord Alcohol (S/R)

Chances are, unless you have no job / family / life and spend every waking hour scouring the internet for the latest in underground extreme music, that you have probably never heard of Alaskans….Sex Dumpster. The band name itself conjures… Continue Reading →

Funeral Winds – Sinister Creed (Avantgarde)

…I get a feeling that 2018 is going to be a good year for fast, furious and brutal black metal… Now, Funeral Winds may take a bit of time getting a full-length record out, but when they do, they don’t… Continue Reading →

Ayat- Carry on, Carrion (Moribund)

It is hard for me to review this album by Lebanese BM bods Ayat objectively. A lot is made online of the threat that these guys live under due to their anti religious , anti conformist stance. As far as… Continue Reading →
