Dark Funeral

Avslut – Tyranni (Osmose Productions)

No time for messing about. From the off Avslut, which I believe means “Closed” in Swedish take us down the darkest and most violent path. Dark Funeral meets Marduk. “Stigens Ände”, the second track stirred me more, dragging us along… Continue Reading →

Patronymicon – Ushered Forth by Cloven Tongue (Osmose)

With band members such as N. Sadist, J. Malice and M. Feral, originality doesn’t promise to be on the agenda here. This is the third album from the Swedish black metallers. I spent a lot of time working out who… Continue Reading →

Unmensch – Scorn (Immortal Frost Productions)

I was surprised to learn that Unmensch hadn’t been snapped up as a name. It’s as it sounds. This is a cold and misanthropic black metal band from Belgium, with whom, we’re told, comparisons can be made with the likes… Continue Reading →

Nordjevel – Necrogenesis (Osmose Productions)

It is always nice to find a band during the early days of their career and support them with an air of smugness as the rest of the world (and by that I mean the metal underground!) eventually catches on…. Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival 2018 – Warm up Gig and Inferno Day One, Oslo Norway 28-29/3/18

While most people sit around over the Easter weekend eating too much chocolate, a select few head to Oslo for 4 days of the best extreme metal on offer courtesy of the Inferno Festival, and for the 7th consecutive year,… Continue Reading →

Chaos Invocation – Reaping Season, Bloodshed Beyond (WTC Productions)

This is the German black metal band’s third full album release. “Sinuous and serpentine black metal” is what we’re told to expect. Violence and rawness are what struck me about this work. I liked the old school style, which is… Continue Reading →

Zornheym – Where Hatred Dwells and Darkness Reigns (Non Serviam Records)

With members linked to Dark Funeral, Devian, Diabolical and Facebreaker, this band cannot be ignored. Zornheym from Sweden add to their black metal roots a string orchestra and their own chorus, called “Chorus Tenebris”. The result is a powerful symphonic… Continue Reading →

Svartsyn – In Death (Agonia)

Hailing from Sweden, yet sounding as if they have been delivered straight from the bowels of hell, this duo is ready to unleash another instalment of satanic verses onto this unsuspecting world, with such a tirade that it sounds like… Continue Reading →

Coldborn – Lingering Voidwards (Final Sacrifice Records)

Heading up this band is the extremely talented and creative Norgaath who has his black heart in various other bands and is accompanied on this release by Menthor (Enthroned) and also some guest vocal appearances by a couple of people… Continue Reading →

Between The Frost & Evnar – From The Roots 1993-2105 & E.V.N.A.R. Albums (Winter Demons)

I’m throwing these two in together as both Spanish bands have intertwined members and a lot of common ground between them. Both albums have been recently released by Winter Demons and offshoot of the Darkwoods label who embrace all things… Continue Reading →

Dark Funeral – Where Shadows Forever Reign (Century Media)

Within the frontiers of modern day black metal where global exposure to every genre of music is at the click of a mouse the sinister, malevolent world of black metal that unfolded some 20 plus years ago is meaningless even… Continue Reading →

The Wretched End – In These Woods, From These Mountains (Indie)

This band was on my radar in 2010 solely due to the band members who comprise notably of Samoth, Nils Fjellström and Cosmo who you can look up if unfamiliar. The two previous albums struck a chord with me instantly… Continue Reading →
