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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Sons Of Balaur – Tenebris Deos (Season Of Mist)

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

The King is Blind – Our Father (Cacophonous)

Well, that’s a way to kick off the year. This UK five-piece send the traditional post-Yuletide sluggishness screaming to the hills with a bruising yet razor-sharp attack of utterly bludgeoning material. The band often tag their own sound as ‘Monolothic… Continue Reading →

Cradle Of Filth, Ne Obliviscaris – Den Atelier, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, 25/11/15

It’s been just a year since Cradle Of Filth last hit this venue, that time with Behemoth and Inquisition. Their performance that night – which included numerous old gems such as ‘Haunted Shores’ and ‘Beneath the Howling Stars’ – got… Continue Reading →

Stahlsarg – Comrades In Death (Mighty Music)
