Thron - Abysmal (Listenable Records)

Thron – Abysmal (Listenable Records)

Ah, the mid-to-late nineties. When Dissection were the daddies of melodic black metal, Cradle Of Filth hadn’t yet gone through that short but awkward novelty phase, Emperor were recording classic albums instead of cashing in on them with phoned-in reunions, and Varg… well, Varg was.. Read More
Azziard – Metempsychose (Malpermesita Records)

Azziard – Metempsychose (Malpermesita Records)

Pulling this CD out of its wrapping I remembered the band name and that this deathly black troop from France had struck me as slightly bonkers on last album ‘Vesanie’ in 2014. At the time they had been in the midst of exploring the not.. Read More
Ayat- Carry on, Carrion (Moribund)

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 I was concerned Lebanon is.. Read More
Cradle Of Filth - Cryptoriana: The Seductiveness Of Decay (Nuclear Blast)

Cradle Of Filth – Cryptoriana: The Seductiveness Of Decay (Nuclear Blast)

It’s hard to think that this is the first time in their 26 year history and after twelve albums that Dani Filth has released two official albums with the same line-up. This is something I never really took notice of until now as it was.. Read More
Dødsengel – Interequinox (Debemur Morti)

Dødsengel – Interequinox (Debemur Morti)

Band name, album title, record label, it’s kind of like we are writing in some sort of arcane and long forgotten language. But it’s our language and those versed in Norwegian Black Metal and very good French record labels are all who need to entry!.. Read More
Akroma – Apocalypse [Requiem] (Fantai’zic Productions)

Akroma – Apocalypse [Requiem] (Fantai’zic Productions)

This is the fourth album from symphonic black metal band Akroma, who I confess I didn’t know about before hearing this. A name on the list, which did strike me, was that of Dirk Verbeuren, drummer with Soilwork and the excellent melodic metallers Scarve, whose.. Read More
Devilment - II: The Mephisto Waltzes (Nuclear Blast)

Devilment – II: The Mephisto Waltzes (Nuclear Blast)

When their debut came out 2 years ago I watched the videos that were released, but neglected to go out and grab the album as I wasn’t really too sure I would want to. If it’s anything like their latest release, more the fool am.. Read More
Sons Of Balaur - Tenebris Deos (Season Of Mist)

Sons Of Balaur – Tenebris Deos (Season Of Mist)

Unless you are part of the pathetic human sheep herd, you will be aware of how this is real black metal, the one true cult that never dies. The musical face of the true believers who work to resurrect our lord, and that Balaur well.. Read More
Be’Lakor – Vessels (Napalm)

Be’Lakor – Vessels (Napalm)

Melodeath from Melbourne with a Progressive edge this quintet have been kicking about for a while now and gathering much love and fists in the air from metal heads who enjoy their extremity with plenty of melody and texture. Opener Luma sticks the Prog out.. Read More
Panychida – Haereticalia: The Night Battles (Cursed Records)

Panychida – Haereticalia: The Night Battles (Cursed Records)

Welcome to the latest “memorial service” from Czech Republic brigands Panychida. I remember their last campaign well, 2013 release ‘Grief Of An Idol’ proved to be an enthralling journey of pagan metal complete with themes of ancient death rituals and out of body experiences running.. Read More
Old Corpse Road - Of Campfires And Evening Mists (Cacophonous)

Old Corpse Road – Of Campfires And Evening Mists (Cacophonous)

Cacophonous? Really? That brought a wry smile to my face when the long awaited by me second album from this Darlington quintet finally arrived. For a band who have previously worn their Cradle Of Filth influences firmly on their longsleeves it was kind of nice.. Read More
Darkend -The Canticle Of Shadows (Non Serviam Records)

Darkend -The Canticle Of Shadows (Non Serviam Records)

I must admit this album caught my eye due to the guest vocalists this Italian band has managed to gather for their third album. One wouldn’t necessarily associate Italy with black metal generally but in Darkend we have a band that loves their symphonic metal.. Read More
