Beseech – My Darkness, Darkness (Despotz)

Welcome Back Beseech! Beseech, for those who are unfamiliar with the band, they were Gothic Metal before it really became Gothic Metal. Before Evanescence flirted with the charts and Nightwish appealed to the masses there was a bunch of bands… Continue Reading →

Graveworm – Ascending Hate (AFM)

I used to have a very nice Graveworm t-shirt. It was purple colour with, if I remember rightly, a graveyard and a cross. The band has outlasted my t-shirt and has been pouring out gothically dark metal for 23 years,… Continue Reading →

Moonspell – Extinct (Napalm)

This Portuguese band started out under the name ‘Morbid God’ playing folky black metal but thankfully later changing their name to Moonspell and directing their music style towards a more atmospheric feel. Their first taste of recording was on a… Continue Reading →

Nachtblut – Chimonas (Napalm)

I’ve been impressed with the sheer quality of music hitting this site throughout this year. And so perhaps it shouldn’t surprise me that one of the few genres I’ve only ever mustered a passing interest for can threaten to hurl… Continue Reading →

Aeons Confer – Symphonies of Saturnus (SR)

W.E.B. – For Bidens (No Regrets)

There are some things here I would like to say but I’m going to leave to the end, so let’s make a deal. I won’t make any references to this band’s influences until at least the third paragraph of this… Continue Reading →

Undecimber – Dead Inside (Downfall Records)

“Undecimber or Undecember is a name for a thirteenth month in a calender that normally has twelve months”. Thanks Wikipedia, that’s cleared that one up – but what of the band? “Undecimber is a Swedish Gothic/Dark Metal band that should… Continue Reading →

Embercrow – Blacklight Wanderers (InnerSun Records)

Dark Melancholic Metal from Germany – and the band’s debut no less! It wasn’t so long ago that Finland had the monopoly on Dark Metal, and sure the opening track does show that Embercrow have indeed, at some point, been… Continue Reading →

Darktrance – Pessimum (Bad Mood Man)

Darktrance is the project of sole member Deimos (also of Cold Resistance and Dargoth), a Ukrainian dark metal band which was created in 2007. ‘Pessimum’ is the projects third album, purveying a twisted brand of doomy dark metal that brims… Continue Reading →

Ysengrin – To Endotaton (I Voidhanger)

Helping to permeate the heat of this disgusting American summer as of late has been France’s Ysengrin, who are apparently versed at the art of chilling bones through song.  Please note the singular use of the word song here, as… Continue Reading →
