Arthedain – Infernal Cadence Of The Desolate (Naturmacht)

I think this is the debut full length from this Czech Republic group, after a couple of EPs, and as such from the off with ‘A Testament To Failure’ I’m impressed with the full on sound they have created even… Continue Reading →

Et Moriemur – Epigrammata (Transcending Obscurity)

Is it always enough to try and sound the same as everyone else, can riffs ever grow tiresome. I guess the answer lies in the ears of the listener, but certainly in my experience of reviewing for a number of… Continue Reading →

Inferno – Gnosis Kardias (Of Transcension and Involution) (W.T.C. Productions)

This album has one of those titles that I look at and think “load of old cobblers.” I mean some bands do really pile on the mystical pseudo claptrap don’t they? I want to be able to listen to music… Continue Reading →

Metalfest Open Air – Lochotin Cirque, Pilsen, Czech Republic 3rd-5th June 2016

Day Two As we were walking into the amphitheatre it was clear that this was going to be a swelteringly hot day, and with some gems on the line up it promised to be a good day. Opening things were… Continue Reading →

Day One  There seems be an exponentially increasing number of festivals to choose from each year, with every conceivable gimmick used to tempt in the discerning metalhead. Metalfest Open Air has no need for such gimmicks and in some ways… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Blackosh – Whores, Booze & Black Metal (Iron Bonehead)

Formed in 2010 by Root founder Petr “Blackie” Hošek, Blackosh was conceived as a vehicle by which he could recapture the vibe of his former band’s vibrant early ’90s works. Having evolved gradually around a core of maniacs the band… Continue Reading →
