Outre – Hollow Earth (Debemur Morti)

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 over the place, so it’s.. Read More
Carpenter Brut + Youth Code – London Koko 23/3/18

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 them Italian during the 80’s.. Read More
Nightmarer – Cacophony Of Terror (Season Of Mist)

Nightmarer – Cacophony Of Terror (Season Of Mist)

What do you get if you cross a member of Success Will Write Apocalypse Across the Skies with one of The Ocean and an ex from War From A Harlots mouth? Nope there’s no punch-line here just a trio with a debut album seeing them.. Read More
The Clearing Path – Watershed Between Firmament and the Realm of Hyperborea (I, Voidhanger)

The Clearing Path – Watershed Between Firmament and the Realm of Hyperborea (I, Voidhanger)

Gunning for longest album title of the year contender with a late entry comes The Clearing Path with, er, well, let’s just call it ‘Watershed’. (Ok, I realise that this is black metal and the consumption of an entire Thesaurus before spewing out an album.. Read More
Caïnan Dawn - F.O.H.A.T. (Osmose)

Caïnan Dawn – F.O.H.A.T. (Osmose)

Caïnan Dawn’s last opus hit me like a lorry load of corpse paint. Rumbling, muscular black metal with a mission to drown you in wave upon wave of bass-heavy sound that requires nothing more of you than to stop, listen and give yourself up to.. Read More
Blaze of Perdition – Conscious Darkness (Agonia)

Blaze of Perdition – Conscious Darkness (Agonia)

Blaze of Perdition really had a point to make with their last album, 2015’s ‘Near Death Revelations’. Coming off of the back of a terrible road accident in which one member was killed and two others injured, it was doubtless shaped – both conceptually and.. Read More
Blut Aus Nord – Deus Salutis Maea (Debemur Morti Productions)

Blut Aus Nord – Deus Salutis Maea (Debemur Morti Productions)

In my (perhaps not-so-humble) opinion, Blut Aus Nord mastermind Vindsval is one of the most under-heralded geniuses within the black metal scene. For over two decades, he has quietly gone about his business under the BaN moniker to craft some of the most engaging, atmospheric,.. Read More
Ars Magna Umbrae – Through Lunar Gateways (Hellthrasher)

Ars Magna Umbrae – Through Lunar Gateways (Hellthrasher)

Ready for a “manifestation of the Chthonic forces of Death and a sonic portal to the Nightside?” Well just as well as that is exactly what we have here courtesy of Ars Magna Umbrae from Poland, the work of D.A Khthōn. It would appear from.. Read More
Dodecahedron – Kwintessens (Season Of Mist)

Dodecahedron – Kwintessens (Season Of Mist)

Dodecahedron is almost a by-word for complexity for its own sake – a three dimensional 12-sided die that, I read someone point out, is only used by nerdy role playing gamers (yep, me too back in those more carefree days) who regard multi-faceted, multi-coloured dice.. Read More
Fides Inversa – Rite of Inverse Incarnation (World Terror Committee)

Fides Inversa – Rite of Inverse Incarnation (World Terror Committee)

Fides Inversa threw a few people with the change of pace between their first and second albums even though both were finely distilled black metal class. The debut was an unhinged white knuckle ride that felt like an unholy marriage of Watain and Deathspell Omega... Read More
Death Fetishist – Clandestine Sacrament (Debemur Morti)

Death Fetishist – Clandestine Sacrament (Debemur Morti)

Darkness has become very dark indeed these days. Rarely is that more so than in the work of Ævangelist mastermind Matron Thorn whose black metal has been providing a cutting edge for the scene for some time now – with the emphasis on the word.. Read More
Mithridatic - Miserable Miracle (Kaotoxin)

Mithridatic – Miserable Miracle (Kaotoxin)

I think the word that I may resort to here is ‘chaotic’. Yeah. The debut by French band Mithridatic definitely comes under that. Not that it’s a bad thing, not at all, but it sure makes the reviewers’ lives a little harder. It’s just you.. Read More
