Crom Dubh – Firebrands and Ashes (Van Records)

Named after a mythological Irish figure whose name translates as “dark crooked one”, this London based quartet turned heads with their folky melodies on debut “Heimweh” back in 2015. Crom Dubh have further evolved their sound on this sophomore full-length. The seven tracks… Continue Reading →

Disfago – Snake.Triangle.Sacrifice (S/R)

This grubby UK outfit’s vitriolic seven inch from 2015 is riddled with vehement chaotic nihilism, an honest slab of discordant mayhem ransacking various genres and this newest offering continues those assertions with an album saturated in old school violence but… Continue Reading →

Lethean – The Waters of Death (Cruz Del Sur)

This is a project featuring multi-instrumentalist James Ashbey (Deceptor, ex-Solstice, Craven Idol and Doctor Death) and singer Thumri Paavana. Described as a cross between Doom, Epic Metal and NWOBHM, the thought is quite tempting. Immediately you are dragged into epic… Continue Reading →

Mystifier, Solstice, Craven Idol & Sufferer – London Boston Arms 2/11/18

With many tootling off up the M1 to Leeds and Damnation Festival this weekend I had to wonder how busy this show was going to be. Fear not, London has come out and there are already a fair few in… Continue Reading →

Nifelheim, Craven Idol & Funeral Throne – London Underworld 26/5/17

There’s a bit of a back-story to this show. If you were not aware the Bröderna Hårdrock Gustavsson bros from Nifelheim are Iron Maiden fans and that’s putting it mildly. They are what you can only describe as absolutely fanatical… Continue Reading →

Craven Idol – The Shackles of Mammon (Dark Descent)

It’s getting increasingly hard to imagine that 2013’s Towards Eschaton was Craven Idol’s first full-length, and what a debut that was. It wasn’t that the combination of death, black and thrash metal was so original but the way the band… Continue Reading →

Scythian – Hubris in Excelsis (Hells Headbangers)

If it’s possible to combine the unholy loin fruits of Manowar, Bathory and Destroyer666 into one album – and that’s not even a fraction of the influences I could name here – then let it be remembered that Scythian showed… Continue Reading →

Crom Dubh – Heimweh (Ván)

It’s rare that I reach these levels of excitement about a pagan black metal release – in the same way as I did when I first heard all those early Kampfar, Falkenbach and Forefather releases. It’s not that I’m jaded… Continue Reading →

Pentagram Chile, Ravens Creed, Craven Idol, Hybris & Ataud – London Purple Turtle 2/8/14

South American styled, savage black thrashing madness fills the venue at the ungodly time of 4.30 as 1st band Ataud kick this show off. Unlike the others on the bill this lot are completely new to me but the trio… Continue Reading →

Sonne Adam, Grave Miasma, Craven Idol & Decrepid – London Boston Arms 17/5/13

A nice underground bill tonight with the headliners coming all the way from Israel for the promoters first international show and three British bands adding some good support. First up were Decrepid who were in full swing when I got… Continue Reading →
