Patria – Magna Adversia (Soulseller Records)

Patria – Magna Adversia (Soulseller Records)

I was very lucky and extremely pleased to have seen this Brazilian band play Inferno Festival a couple of years ago giving me call to check them out fully. This album is the bands sixth but the first in three years since the excellent “Individualism”.. Read More
359 – The Path Of Ayin (Schattenkult Produktionen)

359 – The Path Of Ayin (Schattenkult Produktionen)

Obviously my first point of investigative journalism (otherwise known as being plain bloody nosy) here was wondering about the significance of the name of these Finns. 359, isn’t that the time the goose drunk wine, nope just ten out, how annoying. Let’s see if anything.. Read More
In The Woods - Pure (Debemur Morti Productions)

In The Woods – Pure (Debemur Morti Productions)

The reformation of Norwegian avant-garde and progressive metallers In The Woods in 2014 was highly anticipated as the band released some of the most challenging and wholly satisfying albums in the 90s operating on the fringes of the Norwegian black metal scene. During that fertile.. Read More
Gloomy Grim – The Age Of Aquarius (Satanath Records)

Gloomy Grim – The Age Of Aquarius (Satanath Records)

I gotta be honest, I really struggled with ‘Under The Spell Of The Unlit’, the 2008 release from Finnish symphonic black metal crew Gloomy Grim. On spec, it pretty much ticked all the boxes, however despite the excellent playing and disturbing moments of atmosphere, its.. Read More
Anal Blasphemy – Western Decadence (Iron Bonehead)

Anal Blasphemy – Western Decadence (Iron Bonehead)

This is the fourth release from Finland’s Anal Blasphemy which is the putrid spawn of Molestor Kadostus  – a one man kvlt band here.  This a raw and spiky, living up to Molestor’s self labelled “Bestial Black Metal Filth” . The Darth Vader sample that.. Read More
Svarttjern - Dødsskrik (Soulseller)

Svarttjern – Dødsskrik (Soulseller)

With so many sub-genres within black metal it is fantastic to hear a band who ignore all trends and send us back 20 years or so with their true black metal annihilation which is what this Norwegian band does with their fourth full length. Starting.. Read More
Urgehal – Aeons in Sodom (Season of Mist)

Urgehal – Aeons in Sodom (Season of Mist)

Anyone who thought black metal legends Urgehal would dream of serving up half measures on their final album need only look at the guest list. Like a Who’s Who of Norwegian black metal, the list includes Darkthrone’s Nocturno Culto, Hoest from Taake, Carpathian Forest’s Nattefrost.. Read More
Whiskey Ritual – Blow With The Devil (Art Of Propaganda)

Whiskey Ritual – Blow With The Devil (Art Of Propaganda)

This is more like it. Been listening to a lot of technical death metal for the boss lately and, well, I’m all tech’d out. Much as I appreciate the awesome musicianship of some of these bands they can sometimes lack a bit of groove and.. Read More
The 3rd Attempt – Born In Thorns (Dark Essence)

The 3rd Attempt – Born In Thorns (Dark Essence)

I had been looking forward to listening to this properly as I had managed to turn up at a listening session for the album a couple of months ago just in time to hear the last song, doh! The 3rd Attempt is a new band.. Read More
Narbeleth – Through Blackness and Remote Places (Folter)

Narbeleth – Through Blackness and Remote Places (Folter)

“Black metal bands from Cuba are rare”. I’d certainly agree with that statement. “Through Blackness, And Remote Places”, which to my discredit I initially misread as “Through Bracknell, and Remote Places”, is the band’s third album and there’s a swagger and confidence about it. Fiery,.. Read More
Ergot – Victims Of Our Same Dreams (De Tenebrarum Principio)

Ergot – Victims Of Our Same Dreams (De Tenebrarum Principio)

Never sampled it but always been intrigued about Ergot. It’s a fungal growth found on rye and has hallucinogenic properties that made lots of people unsuspectingly trip out through history, unfortunately when taken in unsafe levels in infected bread it also resulted in gangrene. Naturally.. Read More
Womit Angel – Holy Goatse (Inverse)

Womit Angel – Holy Goatse (Inverse)

Black Metal Punk from Finland. Now those five words have either sent you scuttling off to the next review or have piqued your interest.  I played a track from this album “Nailgun Crucified” on The MattCave this week during the review section HitorMiss. I was.. Read More
