Vidres A La Sang – Set De Sang (Blood Fire Death)

Now this lot are a blast from the past as I remembered reviewing the Spanish band whose name means Glass In Blood’s debut self-titled album via Xtreem music way back in 2004. Finding this in my promo boxes of discs… Continue Reading →

Ultha – The Inextricable Wandering (Century Media)

Ultha have been playing their trade together since 2015, releasing two acclaimed albums alongside several EPs and split releases, and this quartet from Cologne now unveil their third full length. The six songs here span a mighty 65 minutes in… Continue Reading →

Sheidim – Infamata (I, Voidhanger)

Discordant sombreness fills the air. So starts this EP from Spanish black metal band Sheidim. From this comes the ferocious fire of “A Dying Sun”, with a distinct thrash element fuelling the flames. An old school guitar line, more sinister… Continue Reading →

Grave Miasma – Endless Pilgrimage (Sepulchral Voice/Profound Lore)

Grave Miasma are somewhat of a staple of the black and death metal scene within London. Chances are, if you’ve attended a gig within the last 36 months or so, you will have seen them at least once or twice…. Continue Reading →

Destroyer 666 – Wildfire (Season of Mist)

Zom – Flesh Assimilation (Invictus)

It’s about time we got a full length album from Irish black, doom, crust scumbags Zom. For those that have caught them live they really do deliver the goods and leave their mark on you and having seen them twice… Continue Reading →

Profetus – As All Seasons Die (Svart)

Thergothon. Skepticism. Tyranny. All reasons why the mere description ‘Finnish funeral doom’ had me clamouring to hear this album. Profetus do not disappoint. Their style is utterly, crushingly leaden, yet at the same time delicate and airy, with penetrating church-organ-like… Continue Reading →

Mystifier, Bolzer, Cruciamentum, Spearhead, Malthusian and Zom – London Dome 7/6/14

Killer line up this one, London is well and truly spoiled by the sort of bill we often look at in other European destinations and think will never come to England, but it did and by the time doors open… Continue Reading →

Zom – Demo MMXI (Invictus)

I caught the Fenriz approved Irish band Zom recently at Live Evil Festival and was pretty much blown away by their on stage presence and sound. They conjured up a fearsome brand of occult death metal that reminded a lot… Continue Reading →
