The Senseless – The Buried Life (S/R)

The Senseless – The Buried Life (S/R)

It’s been a while since we last heard from Australian Sam Bean, in fact it was his appearance with London outfit The Antichrist Imperium that particularly caught our attention. As well as them and time in industrial grind bastards The Berzerker he is best known.. Read More
The Mute Gods -Tardigrades Will Inherit The Earth (Inside Out)

The Mute Gods -Tardigrades Will Inherit The Earth (Inside Out)

I know it will be by now bugging the crap out of one third of The Mute Gods’ Nick Beggs, but this is his band’s first feature on Ave Noctum so the elephant-in-the-room of “Hey, It’s that guy from Kajagoogoo!” must once again be aired... Read More
Eternal Deformity – No Way Out (Temple Of Torturous)

Eternal Deformity – No Way Out (Temple Of Torturous)

Damn, it’s bad enough going through your mortal days with a boat-race like Joseph Merrick’s but you have to take it with you into the afterlife? Seriously though, if you took a look at this band’s name and thought as I did that this was.. Read More
Hail Spirit Noir – Mayhem In Blue (Dark Essence Records)

Hail Spirit Noir – Mayhem In Blue (Dark Essence Records)

I was first introduced to this Greek band via their second album titled “Oi Magoi” and was struck immediately by their uniqueness and their completely off the wall style. So, buckle up as we head down the proverbial rabbit hole to a sonic landscape that.. Read More
Anciients – Voice of the Void (Season Of Mist)

Anciients – Voice of the Void (Season Of Mist)

Over three years ago I first became aware of Vancouver’s own Anciients by virtue of reading the review of ‘Heart of Oak’ on the very site your are currently viewing (check Ave Noctum passim), and in the intervening three years the band has undoubtedly been.. Read More
Devin Townsend Project – Transcendence (Inside Out)

Devin Townsend Project – Transcendence (Inside Out)

Fans of Devin Townsend must be the luckiest in the metal industry if sheer volume is any measure. I count 21 full-length releases since Strapping Young Lad’s 1995 album Heavy As A Really Heavy Thing and that’s not to mention all the EPs, live albums,.. Read More
Tardive Dyskinesia - Harmonic Confusion (Playfalse Records)

Tardive Dyskinesia – Harmonic Confusion (Playfalse Records)

Chances are that despite their 10-year existence and their recent UK Tech-Fest performance, you may still not have heard of this lot. Judging by the amount of sparks that are flying off the Greek metallers’ latest full-length and their peers’ early reaction to them it’s.. Read More
Third Ion – Biolith (Glasstone Records)

Third Ion – Biolith (Glasstone Records)

So when a bassist from Devin Townsend’s band gets together with a guitarist from Into Eternity, it’s a pretty fair bet that project is going to lean towards the progressive. And Canada’s Third Ion are certainly of the progressive metal persuasion – expect plenty of.. Read More
Syberia - Resiliency (Debemur Morti)

Syberia – Resiliency (Debemur Morti)

Formed in Barcelona back in 2009, Syberia are an instrumental quartet named after the coldest region of Russia, Siberia, which in Turkish translates to “Asleep Land”. Quite fitting given how vast and sparsely inhabited it is, but we are not here to discuss geography. With.. Read More
Red Eleven - Collect Your Scars (Lifeforce)

Red Eleven – Collect Your Scars (Lifeforce)

There’s certainly an early 90’s vibe about Red Eleven’s sound. The soulful mid-range vocals and inimitable groove that runs throughout their third album “Collect Your Scars” is very indicative of that era, but Red Eleven are from Finland…and that means things are never that predictable... Read More
Britney – Britn3y (Superstar Destroyer Records)

Britney – Britn3y (Superstar Destroyer Records)

Warning, this Scottish trio of noiseniks are seriously whacky! They seem to want to be hidden by search engines between the thighs of Ms Spears and have a serious affiliation to all things beefy. This, their cunningly entitled 3rd release came with a predominantly pink.. Read More
Intronaut – The Direction Of Last Things (Century Media)

Intronaut – The Direction Of Last Things (Century Media)

Over their last three albums, post-proggers Intronaut have played things fast and loose. They are known for lurking between the dark polyrhythmic assault and vaulting angst of Periphery and the lighter, jazzier tendencies of Between The Buried And Me, but with this latest full-length they..
