Allone – Alone (Aesthetic Death)

Can you ever be truly Alone when you have 2 l’s? Deep and complicated question to ponder but thankfully the music may well provide some answers and this is not a solo project but the work of a London based… Continue Reading →

Vingulmork – Avgrunn (Crime Records)

Power, hostility, groove, technicality, venom, the adjectives could keep spilling out in relation to this latest EP release, Avgrunn, by aggressive blackened Norwegians Vingulmork. The release clocks in at just over 20 minutes and doesn’t relent throughout the four crushing… Continue Reading →

Suhnopfer – Hic Regnant Borbonii Names (Debemur Morti Productions)

So, my first time experiencing the music of one-man black metal identity Suhnopfer, from France, but a very rewarding one. To be fair, while I don’t mind Black metal, I’d be the first to say that it’s far from my… Continue Reading →

Obscure Infinity – Evocation of Chaos / Into the Vortex of Obscurity (FDA Records)

German Death metal, pure and simple… These guys have been going for a few years and herald an old school approach. Every now and then there are some super cool melodic passages added into the mix. Essentially, a complete package… Continue Reading →

Blodhemn – Mot Ein Evig Ruin (Soulseller Records)

Mr Invisus has been competently plugging away at this game since 2004, with full length releases in 2012 and 2014, and though it’s been five years since the sophomore album, we are reminded very quickly that quality trumps quantity. The… Continue Reading →

Ondfodt – Dodsrikets Kallelse (Immortal Frost Productions)

Ondfodt are back, four years after unleashing their uncompromising ‘Hexkonst’ on the world, and they are well and truly cementing their position within the ranks of the Finnish black metal elite. ‘Dodsrikets kallelse’ opens up with an intro that demonstrates… Continue Reading →

Crimson Throne – Of Void And Solitude (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Crimson Throne are a pretty new English black metal band and signing to the interesting little label Apocalyptic Witchcraft, and have toured a fair bit recently with bands such as label mates From The Bogs Of Aughiska and Coltsblood. Enough… Continue Reading →

Thron – Abysmal (Listenable Records)

Ah, the mid-to-late nineties. When Dissection were the daddies of melodic black metal, Cradle Of Filth hadn’t yet gone through that short but awkward novelty phase, Emperor were recording classic albums instead of cashing in on them with phoned-in reunions,… Continue Reading →

Void – Jettatura (Ladlo Productions)

If you are gonna thrash do it blackly said someone very sensibly once, or perhaps it was just me. That’s the way I like it though baby and a good dose of black n’ roll always hits the mark and… Continue Reading →

Cast The Stone – Empyrean Atrophy (Agonia Records)

I wasn’t familiar with Cast The Stone, prior to this EP flying into my slot. ”Crap name” I thought but a bit of research and a read of the promo blurb clobbered me with the knowledge that the band is… Continue Reading →

The Spirit – Sounds From The Vortex (Nuclear Blast)

Melodic black metal may be an oxymoron to some, but over the years the evolution of black metal has produced some stunning releases that remain on my play list to this day. However, for every outstanding release, there are endless… Continue Reading →

NortherN – Desolate Ways to Ultima Thule (Moribund Records)

In previous times, Northern went by the name ‘Cold Northern Vengeance’ and although I have a couple of their albums, they didn’t really hit my radar. However, I was interested to hear this new incarnation, especially with the press release… Continue Reading →
