Mork -  Eremittens Dal (Peaceville)

Mork – Eremittens Dal (Peaceville)

Even before you reach the music here with Thomas Eriksen’s Mork one man project, you kind of get big galloping clues as to what you’ll get. From the logo to artwork and even the damned label you are walloped in the face with a whole.. Read More
Wintersun - The Forest Seasons (Nuclear Blast)

Wintersun – The Forest Seasons (Nuclear Blast)

Genre defying Metallers Wintersun are not a band to be rushed. With a gap of 8 years between their first and second albums, it’s with a hint of ironic surprise at the veritable speed of this their third album being unleashed after a mere 5.. Read More
Æra – Of Forsworn Vows (De Tenebrarum Principio)

Æra – Of Forsworn Vows (De Tenebrarum Principio)

This seems as obscure as it gets. A guy from Chile with a Scandinavian name and an American from St Louis, Missouri have released their debut ep of pagan black metal. I read that this ep “Of Forsworn Vows” is on cassette and limited to.. Read More
Eoront – Another Realm (Code 666)

Eoront – Another Realm (Code 666)

The whole concept of this intrigued me. Eoront is an atmospheric black metal project from Siberia. This is their third album. Nature pours through the opening track “The Rain”. The drops of water can be heard and there is a crackling fire, but it’s as.. Read More
Allegaeon - Proponent for Sentience (Metal Blade)

Allegaeon – Proponent for Sentience (Metal Blade)

Allegaeon are back with their fourth album and only a single line-up change. Long-time vocalist Ezra Haynes has been replaced by Riley McShane and to be honest I wasn’t immediately convinced, especially when I noted he had taken over a fair bit of the lyric.. Read More
Arx Atrata – Spiritus In Terra (S/R)

Arx Atrata – Spiritus In Terra (S/R)

Debut album Oblivion seemingly came from out of nowhere at the beginning of 2014 and pretty much blew me away. Looking back at the review I had little information to go on at the time as the band were not revealing much at all wanting.. Read More
Stilla – Skuggflock (Nordvis / Bindrune)

Stilla – Skuggflock (Nordvis / Bindrune)

Translating the album title as “Shadowpack” this is the third full length from this inventive Swedish avant-garde black metal act whose album cover conjures up notions of mysticism and chilly autumnal mornings where mist and dew blanket the air. Being my first listening experience for.. Read More
Torc - Tóny Annwnu (Murderous Music Production)

Torc – Tóny Annwnu (Murderous Music Production)

Feeling like a limb has been cut off and you have been thrown to the wolves to defend for yourself? Well that’s certainly the political climate in the UK at the moment for many. Not that this should have anything to do with reviewing an.. Read More
Darkend -The Canticle Of Shadows (Non Serviam Records)

Darkend -The Canticle Of Shadows (Non Serviam Records)

I must admit this album caught my eye due to the guest vocalists this Italian band has managed to gather for their third album. One wouldn’t necessarily associate Italy with black metal generally but in Darkend we have a band that loves their symphonic metal.. Read More
Necronomicon – Advent of the Human God (Season of Mist)

Necronomicon – Advent of the Human God (Season of Mist)

“Advent of the Human God” is Neconomicon’s fourth album in over fifteen years of existence. What is immediately noticeable is the slickness with which this album is produced. That’s a positive point and it’s no compromise as these Canadians have atmospheres to create, which they.. Read More
Nordjevel – S/T (Osmose)

Nordjevel – S/T (Osmose)

Formed as recently as the Spring of 2015, the Norwegian black metal entity known as Nordjevel has set out to establish its vision of how the genre and occultism should be merged with its self-titled debut. Joined by a certain Swede named F. Widigs (Marduk).. Read More
Borknagar - Winter Thrice (Century Media)

Borknagar – Winter Thrice (Century Media)

It’s not really important to me what a band used to sound like, where they started or the genre that they were classed as – it‘s more about where they are now and just interesting (though not essential) how they got there. Time moves on,.. Read More
