New Light Choir – Torchlight (Svart Records)

New Light Choir – Torchlight (Svart Records)

Many things came into my head while I was listening to this album, which is a good thing, but I cannot accept the claim that New Light Choir “are devoid of the trappings of retro worship”. I’d agree that “retro worship” is too strong a.. Read More
Paragon Impure – Sade (Ván Records)

Paragon Impure – Sade (Ván Records)

A project which first saw the light of day in 2004 before being indefinitely shelved in 2009, Paragon Impure finally bring us their sophomore album. The debut album from way back in 2005 was little more than Darkthrone worship, and this second offering also harks.. Read More
Slaegt – The Wheel (Van Records)

Slaegt – The Wheel (Van Records)

This month sees Slaegt launch their third full length in just four years. The Danish quartet project a quirky upbeat nature through their music, even on early releases which were more straight-forward black metal. “The Wheel” continues where last years “Domus Mysterium” left off, taking.. Read More
Deathhammer- Chained To Hell (Hells Headbangers)

Deathhammer- Chained To Hell (Hells Headbangers)

What is Metal? In general that is, no longer can one refer to Black Sabbath as the sound of Metal because there are simply too many offshoots (and being a totally anal loser Black Sabbath are actually Doom Metal). For me it’s almost totally impossible.. Read More
Panzer Squad – Ruins (Testimony Records)

Panzer Squad – Ruins (Testimony Records)

Teutonic threesome Panzer Squad began in 2012 and “Ruins” is their second full length release, following 2016’s “Coming to your Town”.  Heavy Metal’s preoccupation with the machines of War is understandable. Death contraptions of steel and iron that destroy and terrorize will always be wet dream.. Read More
Khanus – Flammiron (I, Voidhanger)

Khanus – Flammiron (I, Voidhanger)

Ready for some metal of death with shamanic drumming and chanting, occasional soprano vocals and choral aspects and even the use of a singing bowl? Well that should give you an idea that this album, the first from Khanus following on from an EP and.. Read More
Acârash - In Chaos Becrowned (Dark Essence Records)

Acârash – In Chaos Becrowned (Dark Essence Records)

“For fans of Rotting Christ, Darkthrone, Satyricon, Khold” reads the press release that accompanies ‘In Chaos Becrowned’, the debut album from Norwegian occult act Acârash. Maybe…but it does become somewhat clear as you listen to this album, that this band clearly worship at the altar.. Read More
Thunderwar - Wolfpack (Lifeforce Records)

Thunderwar – Wolfpack (Lifeforce Records)

This 5 track EP is the third release by Polish quartet Thunderwar and its rapid no-nonsense songs get to the point with minimal fuss. Opening title track “Wolfpack” has Kamil “Madness” Mandes’s raspy vocals spat out over Paweł “Pavulon” Jaroszewicz’s fast drumming, while Witold Ustapiuk’s.. Read More
Nocturnal Graves – Titan (Season Of Mist)

Nocturnal Graves – Titan (Season Of Mist)

Despite (or because of) the presence of a couple of past/present writing and playing members of Destroyer 666 I came into this album with zero preconceptions beyond the fact that it would be hard as nails and without compromise. As a band they’ve been kicking.. Read More
Ghastly – Death Velour (20 Buck Spin)

Ghastly – Death Velour (20 Buck Spin)

Although paraded as a death metal band, Ghastly’s ghoulish sound has more than a hallmark of maggot-ridden black metal about it. It’s interesting to read of a recognised affinity with Darkthrone’s “Soulside Journey”, but also with the likes of Execration and Autopsy. This is the.. Read More
Myrkraverk-  Naer Doden (Blut & Eisen Productions)

Myrkraverk- Naer Doden (Blut & Eisen Productions)

Another year and another debut black metal album from the icy wastelands of Norway, this time it’s from a duo with a formidable pedigree under their bullet belts. The duo is led by Infamroth of ‘Throne Of Katarsis’ and ‘Skuggeheim’ fame amongst others. The band.. Read More
Cultus Profano – Sacramentum Obscurus (Debemur Morti)

Cultus Profano – Sacramentum Obscurus (Debemur Morti)

Pure, cult (or kvlt), true (or trve) are often closely linked with Black Metal, probably more so than any other Metal sub genre, but what does it all mean. Essentially to me it means untainted, like a skull left upon a coffin gathering dust over.. Read More
