Earth Rot – Black Tides of Obscurity (Season of Mist)

Earth Rot have been doing their black metal thing since 2013, since when they’ve released two eps and now three albums. Although they’ve never come into my life previously, it’s clear that they’ve put themselves about a bit, having toured… Continue Reading →

Devilish Impressions – The I (Lifeforce Records)

Luckily I’ve been following Devilish Impressions for long enough that I can ignore the publicity behind their fourth album release. Can somebody explain to me how “The I” is “a phonetic acronym of the band’s name”? Such contrived nonsense suggests… Continue Reading →

Dying Vision – Univerself (S/R)

Dying Vision is a group of musicians from Poland. Now there are many excellent musicians from Poland where there seems to be a blackened death factory producing such people, but two members of this band were of particular interest. First… Continue Reading →

Naumachia – Black Sun Rising (Witching Hour Productions)

This album, the third by Poland’s Naumachia, was recorded three years ago in the famous Hertz studio but didn’t receive much publicity so it’s having a second round. The band’s line-up is interesting. On drums is Icanraz who as a… Continue Reading →

Eternal Deformity – The Beauty of Chaos (Code 666)

After 19 years Polish band Eternal Deformity are now releasing their fifth album. I haven’t heard the previous ones, but one thing is for sure. Pigeon-holing this style of music is not easy. I suppose avant-garde metal probably covers it…. Continue Reading →

Asgaard – Stairs to Nowhere (Icaros Records)
