Anneke van Giersbergen with Residentie Orkest The Hague – Symphonized (Inside Out)

Anneke van Giersbergen is something of an enigma having constantly evolved her style over the years amassing an impressive back catalogue of work during her tenures with The Gathering, Agua de Annique, The Gentle Storm, Vuur and of course her… Continue Reading →

Squidhead – Cult[ist] (S/R)

Miskatonic University graduates Squidhead are a three-piece who haul from Belgium and have nothing but high praise for the “Great Old One”. Spawned from the depths of Pierre “Pish” Minet, the project was initially a solo endeavour but it has… Continue Reading →

Arcadea – S/T (Relapse)

So with Mastodon’s newest genre-bending long-player hot off the press and filling our stomachs with meaty melodies, their drummer/backing vocalist, Brann Dailor, has seen it fit to offer us up a side-helping of psychedelic, synthetic electronica. That boy is a… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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!”… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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’… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
