The Spirit – Sounds From The Vortex (Eternal Echoes)

The Spirit – Sounds From The Vortex (Eternal Echoes)

If you’re used to judging a band by its name and album cover then you may already have decided to skip past The Spirit – but that, my friend, would have been a mistake. Because Sounds From the Vortex is actually some pretty solid black.. Read More
Arckanum - Den förstfödde (Folter Records)

Arckanum – Den förstfödde (Folter Records)

Normally an Arckanum release would be met with a bit of a fanfare but this, his 9th studio album seems to have slipped in with a somewhat muted fashion. Not only that but the press release here states that “the Swede is back for one.. Read More
Sheidim - Infamata (I, Voidhanger)

Sheidim – Infamata (I, Voidhanger)

Discordant sombreness fills the air. So starts this EP from Spanish black metal band Sheidim. From this comes the ferocious fire of “A Dying Sun”, with a distinct thrash element fuelling the flames. An old school guitar line, more sinister instrumentals and voices, and a.. Read More
Schafott - The Black Flame (High Roller)

Schafott – The Black Flame (High Roller)

It’s debut album time for this bunch of Teutonic terrors, always a big step even in this day and age. Once the backwards snarling and melodic guitar intro ‘Conflagration’ is out of the way, which suggests some gritty and dark but traditional metal, we get.. Read More
Blackevil - The Ceremonial Fire (FDA Records)

Blackevil – The Ceremonial Fire (FDA Records)

I have only recently discovered this German band via their debut EP ‘Hail the Cult’, which was some hefty black/thrash. This full length album certainly expands their arsenal somewhat based on what I’ve heard. The nasty harshness is still present, but there a touch of.. Read More
Sincarnate – In Nomine Homini (Hatework)

Sincarnate – In Nomine Homini (Hatework)

Romanian band Sincarnate cite their influences as Nile/Dissection/My Dying Bride, and the ominous tones of Portishead, and proudly wearing those on their sleeve, present their second full-length album ‘In Nomine Homini’. Raging death metal with a blackened soul, exhaling doom and mystical portance. Featuring professionally.. Read More
Necrowretch – Satanic Slavery (Season Of Mist)

Necrowretch – Satanic Slavery (Season Of Mist)

This French bands first two albums have been on my playlist regularly over the last few years as we now get a third album that sees the band strengthen their song writing into eight songs of blistering power and consummate sonic devastation. Coupled to that.. Read More
Stygian Temple – In The Sign Of The Five Angles (Sol Records)

Stygian Temple – In The Sign Of The Five Angles (Sol Records)

You kind of know what to expect from a cold, dark name like Stygian Temple and that’s just as well as these Germans don’t go down the normal public Internet route of giving much in the way of information away. Indeed we don’t even get.. Read More
Coldborn – Lingering Voidwards (Final Sacrifice Records)

Coldborn – Lingering Voidwards (Final Sacrifice Records)

Heading up this band is the extremely talented and creative Norgaath who has his black heart in various other bands and is accompanied on this release by Menthor (Enthroned) and also some guest vocal appearances by a couple of people I am unfamiliar with. This.. Read More
Netherbird – The Grander Voyage (Blacklodge)

Netherbird – The Grander Voyage (Blacklodge)

A bit of a rare treat, this one, all be told. I am an owner of the first of their four albums, “The Ghost Collector”, having bought it, bizarrely enough, in a second hand store in rural Norfolk (go figure). I’d never seen too much.. Read More
Vanhelga – Ode And Elegy (S/R)

Vanhelga – Ode And Elegy (S/R)

Before you read the review we are proud to be one of the websites asked to host the brand new accompanying video for “Utan Mening.”  The song used in the video, is the opening track from “Ode & Elegy, the band’s fourth full-length album, and it.. Read More
Serpents Lair – Circvmambulating The Stillborn (Hellthrasher)

Serpents Lair – Circvmambulating The Stillborn (Hellthrasher)

A certain shroud of mystery cloaks this lot. Apparently the band are from Sjælland Denmark but there’s no clue as to who the players are, not even the normal black metal initials for their names. One thing that is crystal clear is that their debut.. Read More
