Author & Punisher, Treha Sektori, Shitwife – London The Underworld 20/1/16

One-man industrial doom metal act, Author & Punisher, hit the The Underworld on a suitably foggy Wednesday night, bringing France’s Treha Sektori and local lads, Shitwife, into the mix of the second evening of a 16-date European tour. Original opening… Continue Reading →

Amber Asylum – Sin Eater (Prophecy)

My acquaintance with the Amber Asylum collective goes right back to their Frozen In Amber debut from the days when Terrorizer often reviewed such off the beaten path music as this, Diamanda Galas or weird Estonian early music groups playing… Continue Reading →

Wilt – Moving Monoliths (Bindrune)

Upon forming, back in 2010, Winnipeg’s Wilt’s original intention was to create a black metal studio-only project. Since, the duo of guitarist Brett Goodchild and vocalist Jordan Dorge have assembled a full lineup and have started hitting the festival circuit… Continue Reading →

Draugurinn – Isavetur (Nordvis)

Sweden’s Nordvis continues to defy convention by releasing an ever-more eclectic roster of musical genres, yet managing to ensure that there is a consistency in tone, ambience and atmosphere – and that atmosphere is always cold. Convincingly, undeniable Scandinavian cold…. Continue Reading →

Ahamkara – The Embers Of The Stars (Nordvis / Bindrune)

Perhaps their moniker is a reference to Hindu philosophy or, less likely, the dragon-like creature in the massively multiplayer first-person shooting videogame Destiny. One thing is for certain, Ahamkara sure know how to get under your skin. They are Newcastle-Upon-Tyne… Continue Reading →

Neronoia – Sapore Di Luce E Di Pietra (Eibon)

I like a challenge, I always say that to our editor, and this album intrigued me with its short description on the review list with adjectives such as twisted, bleak, misery etc, thinking I was about to embark on a… Continue Reading →

Thränenkind – The Elk (Lifeforce Records)

The album art, a colourless, out-of-focus shack lost in a barren wasteland, should tip you off to the kind of music that lurks within. Thränenkind are just one of a batch of ambient hardcore bands that seem to be turning… Continue Reading →

The Vomit Arsonist – An Occasion For Death (Malignant Records)

Can you imagine being able to spew up liquid fire? That would be fantastic really although you would have to be so careful if you were going out on the piss. It’s one thing getting barred from the pub but… Continue Reading →

Goatcraft – All For Naught (Forbidden)

If you took one look at this album and had to guess, I reckon most of us would go for ‘old school black metal’ as the contents. An Ildjarn friendly racket? This however is actually, according to the PR, dark… Continue Reading →
