Camilla Sparksss – Brutal (On The Camper Records)

Sometimes we get some really leftfield curveball discs sent in to review and whereas if they are digital downloads and we can press delete and think, not for us, we do try our best. This is one such example and… Continue Reading →

YERÛŠELEM – The Sublime (Debemur Morti)

OK for once let’s cut to the chase and go backwards. I had real problems with this album. Try as I might and with play after play I failed utterly to make any headway to get to the inside of… Continue Reading →

Death Comes Crawling – Looking For Semblance (I, Voidhanger)

Something different as we reach towards Yule. Dis Pater, of Midnight Odyssey fame amongst other projects, has always been an artist of singular vision and distinctive sound, and if you are a fan of Midnight Odyssey then the fact that… Continue Reading →

The Vice – XIII Years (S/R)

This E.P from Stockholm’s The Vice is 4 tracks of Nightbreed style Goth rock with hints of metal.  This trio layer on the atmosphere like the beer and sweat on the steps in the Slimelight (treacherous masonry that it is) …. Continue Reading →

Perturbator – New Model (Blood Music)

I, probably like many other metal heads in the world, got into Perturbator aka James Kent, via the “Dangerous Days” album released in 2014 which for me was a chance listen when browsing the Blood Music bandcamp pages just sampling… Continue Reading →

Igorrr – Savage Sinusoid (Metal Blade)

Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Igorrr, the one man band from France. With an early background in black and death metal, Igorrr aspires to “total music freedom” and has been active since 2005 in creating a hard-hitting… Continue Reading →

Cruel Wonders – Gentle Doom (S/R)

How about some folk music? Well, doomy folk noir, to be precise…all the way from Israel. Courtesy of Cruel Wonders, a duo made up of vocalist/guitarist Tamar Singer and Vlad Shusterman, providing the ambience and fuzz, ‘Gentle Doom’ is their… Continue Reading →

Veikchild – Dark Hellectro Monument (iM Electronica)

Veikchild are a project formed by an unknown mastermind (I’m guessing French) and I suppose they are the goth/darkwave entry into the synthwave movement. This is more inspired by films/video games music with occasional bouts of singing added in. Their… Continue Reading →

Emptiness – Not For Music (Season Of Mist)

Belgians Emptiness have been on the go since 1998 and this makes their fifth studio album and my first encounter. Yep, finger on the pulse as ever… Anyway, I gather they come from a kind of black/death background which on… Continue Reading →

Caïna – Christ Clad In White Phosphorus (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

This UK based act helmed by Andy Curtis-Brignell have always been interesting and highly experimental. I remember the near neo-folk acoustic lushness of 2008 album ‘Temporary Antennae’ being a challenging listen with many ideas flowing through it. Fast forward to… Continue Reading →

Remain In Silence – …And The Soul Goes On (MIG)

The two cold-wave pioneers who are comprised of A. Buchwald (guitars) and A. Gimpel (vocals) have apparently been around since 1983. Classic they may well be but for me the journey starts here as I have to admit to never… Continue Reading →
