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
Ultra Damaged: Damaged Inc. Zine Anthology 1985-2017 – Maniac (Cult Never Dies)

Ultra Damaged: Damaged Inc. Zine Anthology 1985-2017 – Maniac (Cult Never Dies)

“Wanna buy a fanzine mate?” Ah those desperate calls for beer money at gigs have long gone. No more hawking wares with names like Organ, Dog, P’tahk, Satellite and err Kentucky Fried Afterbirth. The Internet has taken over and the physical fanzine is very much.. Read More
Taake – Kong Vinter (Dark Essence)

Taake – Kong Vinter (Dark Essence)

Well clearly we had to wait patiently till the end of the year for the 7th Taake album, after all even with the very rudimentary understanding of other languages it’s obvious the subject matter here is Winter. If you couldn’t get the title, one look.. Read More
Cloak – To Venomous Depths (Season of Mist)

Cloak – To Venomous Depths (Season of Mist)

Atlanta Georgia is not the first place one would think of when Blackened Death Rock is what is on the cards. However, Cloak hail form the Southern States and ply their trade in the same market as Watain and Tribulation. The quintet have been around.. Read More
Cursed Moon – Rites Of Darkness (Hells Headbangers)

Cursed Moon – Rites Of Darkness (Hells Headbangers)

I’ll start off by saying – I like this album. I am not sure if I like it for the same reasons that Sal Hellraiser wants me to. This is good fun Goth. He is marketing it as Deathwave but for me this is pure.. Read More
Mork -  Eremittens Dal (Peaceville)

Mork – Eremittens Dal (Peaceville)

Even before you reach the music here with Thomas Eriksen’s Mork one man project, you kind of get big galloping clues as to what you’ll get. From the logo to artwork and even the damned label you are walloped in the face with a whole.. Read More
