Malvento – Pneuma (Third I Rex)

Abysmal Grief – Strange Rites Of Evil (Terror From Hell)

We are all used to our doom being a little on the slow side and that certainly proved to be the point with a package of three discs, including this one which took over a month to even arrive in the post from Italy. The.. Read More

Funeral Marmoori – The Deer Woman (Minotauro)

When I pulled this disc out of its packaging I was instantly bewitched by its cover-art. The image attributed to Francesco Menicocci is really rather stunning in its grotesquery and just had me staring at it for ages. Reminding me of a book cover of.. Read More

Necromass – Calix, Utero, Babalon (Funeral Industries)

Necromass – Calix, Utero, Babalon (Funeral Industries)

The Italians do like setting up strange shrouded musical cults. The likes of early Death SS, Opera IX and Mortuary Drape fit that bill well, playing stygian, witch-coven blackened metal summoned from the very bowels of hell exclusively. Here is another lot who are completely.. Read More
