LÜÜP - Canticles of the Holy Scythe (I, Voidhanger)

LÜÜP – Canticles of the Holy Scythe (I, Voidhanger)

While LÜÜP may be the brainchild of Greek composer and multi-instrumentalist Stelios Romaliadis, it’s far from a solo project and while I usually comment on individuals on each song, a quick look at the discography on their official site where you can list the musicians on.. Read More
Les Chants Du Hasard – S/T (I, Voidhanger Records)

Les Chants Du Hasard – S/T (I, Voidhanger Records)

It has been an extremely long time since I’ve actively enjoyed listening to an album that contains no guitars, bass or drums. So long, in fact I cannot actually remember when it was. Well Hazard has changed that all on his own, primarily owing to.. Read More
Mono – Requiem for Hell (Pelagic Records)

Mono – Requiem for Hell (Pelagic Records)

Japanese post rock quartet mark their 17th anniversary with the release of 9th studio album ‘Requiem for Hell’. Heavily influenced by experimental rock and shoegaze, Mono are best known for their incorporation of contemporary classical music, noise and minimalism in their sound, aided by the.. Read More
Mons Veneris - Sibilando com o Mestre Negro (Altare Productions)

Mons Veneris – Sibilando com o Mestre Negro (Altare Productions)

I didn’t realise Portugal had its own ‘black circle’ of like-minded artists but apparently it does. Personally I find the whole thing a bit of a schoolboy kvlt clique and don’t take much notices of such collectives but as far as black metal acts are.. Read More
Interview - Obsequiae

Interview – Obsequiae

Aria Of Vernal Tombs, the second album from strangely named US act Obsequiae is certainly a breath of fresh air and quite different from most music around at the moment. Melding what seems like two separate timeframes together and seamlessly combining modern black metal along.. Read More
Obsequiae – Aria Of Vernal Tombs (20 Buck Spin)

Obsequiae – Aria Of Vernal Tombs (20 Buck Spin)

I really enjoyed the debut album ‘Suspended In The Brume Of Eos’ from Minnesotan band Obsequae. Both the band name and the album title projected a real sense of intrigue and mystery before I even heard a note and luckily all expectations were reflected on.. Read More
Goatcraft - The Blasphemer (I, Voidhanger)

Goatcraft – The Blasphemer (I, Voidhanger)

I was not just surprised by Goatcraft’s 2013 debut album All For Naught, but also rather taken with its idiosyncratic approach of sole member and US based Lonegoat obsessively hammering away at his piano with little other accompaniment. This approach has been dubbed ‘necroclassical’ by.. Read More
Interview – Fyrnask

Interview – Fyrnask

Long gone are the days when one man metal projects languished in obscurity and failed to meet the mark, with overbearing scratchy vocals drowned in reverb while a drum machine ran riot in the background. Since Vice’s airing of ‘One Man Metal’ – a documentary.. Read More
Tarja – Victim Of Ritual (earMUSIC)

Tarja – Victim Of Ritual (earMUSIC)

So a new Tarja album is underway and 30th August is the time that her legions of fans can anticipate ‘Colours In The Dark’ dropping. In the meantime some of them (and to say she is popular would be an understatement) can look forward to.. Read More
Interview - Persefone

Interview – Persefone

Persefone have just released their fourth album “Spiritual Migration”. It is a complex work containing elements of a number of metal genres, its heaviness and turbulence being supported by light, classical and orchestral moments. Andrew Doherty interviewed Carlos Lozano, the band’s guitarist to find out.. Read More
Seven Impale – Beginning/Relieve (Karisma)

Seven Impale – Beginning/Relieve (Karisma)

It occurred to me that Seven Impale should really be called Six Impale on account of the number of band members but then I wondered if the number might be referring to the number of different styles they play. The sextet from Norway have a.. Read More
