Der Weg einer Freiheit

Inferno Festival Day Three – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 20/4/19

Having cleared the hangover with a big breakfast, I made my annual trip to the infamous Neseblod store. I have written about this in previous years’ reviews so won’t go into detail except to say that Neseblod has a huge place in… Continue Reading →

Brannthorde – Letzte Aller Wahrheiten (ASTAT Entertainment)

Let’s get philosophical: What is black metal? Is it a sound, a philosophy, a lifestyle choice or what? Well no of course I have no definitive answer, but I do tend to stand my ground when I say it’s certainly… Continue Reading →

Downfall of Gaia, Der Weg einer Freiheit and The Infernal Sea – London Black Heart 31/3/15
