Mayhem – Daemon (Century Media)

No background details needed here, apart from the fact perhaps that we now see Mayhem on new label Century Media; they had a good run on Season Of Mist. This is all about the music and not the infamy of… Continue Reading →

GosT – Valediction (Century Media)

Valediction opens with an absolute blast of keyboard driven black metal in ‘Relentless Passing’, a total howl which then drops into some gentler darkwave and out again into the harsh industrial landscape. Yes I’m back with GosT again where genre… Continue Reading →

Insomnium – Heart Like a Grave (Century Media)

Even though Insomnium have been around for 22 years, have released 8 albums and I have watched them several times live, this is the first album of theirs that I’ve listened to in full. And I can quite happily say… Continue Reading →

Implore – Alienated Despair (Century Media)

I seem to have been wandering around with my head in the clouds of late, listening to a lot of ethereal, expansive, math/space/alt rock that whilst impressive from a song writing, musicianship and production perspective, sometimes you need something else,… Continue Reading →

Borknagar – True North (Century Media)

Borknagar are ever-evolving. Never static, never predictable, defying labels and genres, a constantly morphing force of Progressive Extreme Metal that show no signs of stagnation. Previous album “Winter Thrice” was an absolute masterpiece that just gets better with time, but… Continue Reading →

Baest – Venenum (Century Media)

A tsunami of a drum rolls carves you open to the brutality that Baest are about to unleash on your soul. Deep guttural growls command the preceding’s and these are accompanied by fast intricate drum work and seemingly effortless fretwork… Continue Reading →

Entombed A.D. – Bowels Of Earth (Century Media)

Naturally bands have splits, crucial members leave and new pastures follow yet sometimes things become irreparable. Yet in recent times often the splits have led to renamed acts under a similar moniker. I tend to try and view this as… Continue Reading →

The Offering – Home (Century Media)

It’s safe to say that nobody sounds like The Offering, yet The Offering sound like everybody. Since their inception in 2015, this US four piece have honed their scattered influences before churning out this debut full length. The result is… Continue Reading →

3Teeth – Metawar (Century Media)

If nothing else this album showed me how out of the loop I am, and not just with ‘industrial’. We’ll get to that in a while though. Righty. 3teeth are an LA industrial band currently touring with Ministry and just… Continue Reading →

Martyrdöd – Hexhammaren (Century Media)

In a genre with a blueprint as regimented as crust punk/d-beat’s, it’s difficult to see how after 18 years a band with these foundations could continue to keep things fresh, however, here are Martyrdöd doing just that. Returning from the… Continue Reading →

Belzebubs – Pantheon Of The Nightside Gods (Century Media)

I’ve been waiting for this album for months, after all, I have been a fan of the band for more than 2 years now, after starting to read their adventures on http://belzebubsofficial.tumblr.com before finally getting to watch the “Blackened Call”… Continue Reading →

Tronos – Celestial Mechanics (Century Media)

Well, the premise of this album seemed too good to pass up. I’m a fan of Shane Embury – though trying to keep up with his dizzying array of bands can be difficult. This is his latest collaboration, a star-studded… Continue Reading →
