Blight – Temple of Wounds (Svart)

Blight have been crafting their blackened art for more than a decade in which time, as far as I can see, they’ve released about four EPs for your delight. Spinning through, things seemed to have reached a kind of brutalised… Continue Reading →

Grave Circles – Tome II (Ladlo)

Original released independently on Bandcamp back in December, this debut full-length following the “Tome I” EP from 2017 has been picked up by for rerelease in physical formats. Ukraine has been notorious of late for a slew of Drudkh clones… Continue Reading →

Wardaemonic – Acts Of Repentance (Transcending Obscurity)

Not being familiar with this lot from Australia other than knowing they have put out a few albums, I was kind of expecting some rabid bestial filth somehow. What I got however whilst no less aggressive was…more focussed. The album… Continue Reading →

Death, Void, Terror – To The Great Monolith II (Repose Records)

I know we (well mainly me actually) make the occasional quip about receiving the new soundtrack to the apocalypse but fuck me has it not got even more real over the last couple of weeks? No need to elaborate, I’m… Continue Reading →

Schammasch – Hearts Of No Light (Prosthetic)

The Bible, I have learned, mentions a trumpet blast or rather multiple blasts performed by angels announcing the apocalypse, preceding the resurrection of the dead and the return of God to Earth. The angel on the cover of Schammasch’s new… Continue Reading →

Blut aus Nord – Hallucinogen (Debemur Morti)

What to say, when everything has already been said? I’m a bit late reviewing this. Everybody else has already done it, it seems. It’s quite a challenge, therefore, to find something original and new to say. But I’ll certainly try…. Continue Reading →

The Negative Bias – Narcissus Rising (ATMF)

I admire all attempts to evolve black metal – but appreciate that sometimes, the harder you try, the more unblack metal it’s gunna sound. That’s just the way it is. So, for example, there’s a big difference experimenting within the… Continue Reading →

Temple Koludra – Seven! Sirens! To A Lost Archetype (Transcending Obscurity)

Although founded in 2010, Temple Koludra are a relatively young band regarding releases and fan base. However, the people behind it, though preferring to remain unknown, are very likely experienced musicians. The album at hand, the band’s first after two… Continue Reading →

Deathspell Omega – The Furnaces Of Palingenesia (Norma Evangelium Diaboli)

Despite the fact that I clearly love Death Metal I do have a great admiration for Extreme Metals more Satanic cousin Black Metal. In fact Darkthrone were very much responsible for getting me into what could be described as ‘Trve… Continue Reading →

Entheogen – Without Veil, Nor Self (I, Voidhanger)

I always appreciate a bit of swirling chaos of a bleak mid-winter evening so this glorious second wind for Entheogen’s self-release last year couldn’t be better timed. As a baseline for what promises to be a cracking year in extreme… Continue Reading →

Outre – Hollow Earth (Debemur Morti)

Outre have been out of the spotlight since releasing “Ghost Chants” in 2015, and having finally recruited a full-time vocalist in 2017 now follow up on that debut. The guest vocals from Stawrogin on “Ghost Chants” were, frankly, stylistically all… Continue Reading →

Carpenter Brut + Youth Code – London Koko 23/3/18

New types of music are needed even if they hark back to the past, synthwave is officially a thing now and boy is it big. If you grew up on a diet of horror, action and post-apocalyptic films many of… Continue Reading →
