Malokarpatan – Krupinské ohne (Invictus Productions)

I think this band are truly unique and I am pleased to report on this their third album. Malokarpatan are from Slovakia and wander the dark corners of black metal, but with so much more depth. On their debut ‘Stridžie… Continue Reading →

Veneration – Thy Infernal (Fallen Temple)

Here is a five track blast of venom from Veneration. from Indonesia. The packaging that comes with this EP from the Indonesian band goes overboard on its black metal credentials. The track titles remind us that everything is infernal, there… Continue Reading →

Goblinsmoker – A Throne In Haze, A World Ablaze (Sludgelord Records)

Goblinsmoker started as a one man band born in a Durham bedroom in 2016.  The idea that Adam Kennedy had was to combine the bleakness of Black metal and the colossal riffs and fuzz of Doom.  He had a story that he… Continue Reading →

Beastlurker – Sanguine Elixir Of Psychtropic Divination (Godz Ov War)

Newish US band, two thirds of whom were in Narcotic and this is their firstborn. Black death is the world they inhabit. ‘Caustic Purgatorial Suspension’ has a slow, ominous beginning, all picked notes, martial drums and enveloping vocals/keys. It dies… Continue Reading →

Denial of God – The Hallow Mass (Osmose / Hells Headbangers)

Putting your cold, dead finger on what makes Denial of God so compelling isn’t easy. But the really difficult bit is finding time to dip in and out of this because you know, each time you put it on, you’re… Continue Reading →

Mayhem – Daemon (Century Media)

No background details needed here, apart from the fact perhaps that we now see Mayhem on new label Century Media; they had a good run on Season Of Mist. This is all about the music and not the infamy of… Continue Reading →

Scumripper – All Veins Blazing (Hells Headbangers)

Twenty minutes is all you get so pay attention numbnuts! This is nasty, dirty metal punk encrusted with sacrificial blood and beer stains.  This is the Finnish trio’s debut full length following on from their self titled demo in 2015. The… Continue Reading →

Darkthrone – Old Star (Peaceville)

Yep I know this is in the shops (what few remain) already but we are not exactly late to the party. The old stars behind the album should need no introduction Gylve and Ted aka Fenriz and Nocturno Culto have… Continue Reading →

Murg –Strävan (Nordvis)

If you somehow managed to miss Murg’s frost-bitten and pretty fucking stunning debut, perhaps holed up in your wintery forest domain wearing corpse paint and living only on food you caught and strangled with your bare hands, I can only… Continue Reading →

Forgjord – Ilmestykset (Werewolf Records)

Forgjord have been around since the mid 90’s, lurking in the Finnish Black Metal underground . In true BM fashion their output has hardly been prolific – Ilmestykset being their fourth long player. However what they lack in volume of… Continue Reading →

Lords Of Chaos – Jonas Åkerlund (Arrow Films)

It’s always interesting when a film is announced or still in pre-production and everyone is up in arms about it. I guess the most common time is when it is a remake and people who treasure the original hate the… Continue Reading →
