Voz De Nenhum – Sublimation (Aesthetic Death)

This is one of a couple of albums currently on my review pile featuring Dictator of Cyprus. It might not be the most metal country in the world but he is certainly making up for that appearing past and present… Continue Reading →

Hexvessel – All Tree (Century Media / Prophecy)

Surely the album title should actually be ‘All Hug A Tree’ but I guess that would have been a bit too obvious even if it is the sort of practice Finnish forest folk Hexvessel do on a daily basis. Not… Continue Reading →

Binah – Phobiate (Osmose)

To play live or not that is the question, artists not choosing to play their music in a live setting is no new idea. Rather famously the Black Metal scene is littered with solo projects and underground bands not wishing… Continue Reading →

Khanus – Flammiron (I, Voidhanger)

Ready for some metal of death with shamanic drumming and chanting, occasional soprano vocals and choral aspects and even the use of a singing bowl? Well that should give you an idea that this album, the first from Khanus following… Continue Reading →

Vulture Industries, Code and Talanas – London Boston Arms 9/11/17

A night of eccentricity and avant-garde flair here brings the freaks out to party both on and off stage Dressed for the occasion in sporting ‘fine tailoring’ first up we have a return from English gents Talanas. It’s been a… Continue Reading →

Code – Under the Subgleam (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Not much to go on here as this EP lasts only 12 minutes, but the band themselves are well established with four albums. I was particularly impressed with “Lost Signal”, an EP released at the beginning of this year, which… Continue Reading →

Tome Of The Unreplenished – Cosmoprism: The Theurgy – Act I (I, Voidhanger)

Uhm, yeah. Sometimes accepting things blind can be really great, other times, not so much. Originally formed in Cyprus in 2012 as a one-man-band, Hermes has released 2 albums, the first one an instrumental. After relocating to Bath, England he… Continue Reading →

Code – Lost Signal (Agonia Records)

This six track EP comprises three re-worked pieces from the 2015 album “Mut” and one from each of the Londoners’ first three albums. What’s noticeable about the first track “On Blinding Larks” is its lingering nature. It hangs in the… Continue Reading →

The Moth Gatherer – The Earth is The Sky (Agonia)

Formed in Stockholm back in 2008 by two musicians who used music as a way of therapeutic release and expression to deal with sorrow and tragedy, likening it to moths gathering to a light source, the two soon became three… Continue Reading →

Abyssion – Luonnon Harmonia Ja Vihreä Liekki (Svart)

Finnish black metal may just be one of my discoveries of the year. Ok, I’m not saying I’ve personally discovered it, invented it or destroyed the world, created a new one and declared a ban on any extreme metal that… Continue Reading →

Code – Mut (Agonia)

There seems to be a well of inspiration bubbling through this UK-based outfit presently – ‘Mut’ is the fourth album of their career, however it represents their second full-length in two years (with the release of the first two albums… Continue Reading →
