Dold Vorde Ens Navn – Gjengangere I Hjertets Mørke (SoulSeller Records)

Given the legacy, it is not surprising that Norway continues to spawn seemingly endless black metal bands but after 30 years or so, it is increasingly difficult to find anything that sounds fresh within the genre, with many content to… Continue Reading →

Dreams Of The Drowned – I (Drowned Anthem Records)

It’s no rare occurrence wading through press releases and being promised albums in a similar vein as lots of favourite artists and neither is the disappointment of listening to them and finding very little similar to what you had hoped…. Continue Reading →

Superlynx – New Moon (Dark Essence)

Firstly, allow me to climb up upon my high horse and shout; “FEMALE FRONTED IS NOT A GENRE!” Right, now I’ve got that out of my system and dismounted having had my rant against lazy reviewers (yes, I’m sure I’ve… Continue Reading →

Hexvessel – All Tree (Century Media / Prophecy)

Surely the album title should actually be ‘All Hug A Tree’ but I guess that would have been a bit too obvious even if it is the sort of practice Finnish forest folk Hexvessel do on a daily basis. Not… Continue Reading →

Al Ard – S/T (Code666)

Experimentation has been present in music since its inception, it helps genres to grow, develop, change and evolve over the course of time for better or for worse. Metal has an ability to soak up history’s musical evolution and vomit… Continue Reading →

Urarv – Argentum (Svart Records)

Urarv’s previous album “Aurum” (2017) was a gem. Inspired by Björn Aldrahn Dencker a.k.a Aldrahn of DHG and Thorns, the Norwegians regaled us with insane black metal atmospheres. This time round it’s a brief affair – 25 minutes – but… Continue Reading →

Aura Noir – Aura Noire (Indie)

Borgne – 8 (Avantgarde Music)

Firstly let’s get this out the way regarding the album title which is actually “∞” 8 is not only a number but a symbol, symbol of infinity,.” Putting it as illustrated properly is gonna screw up with the WordPress URL,… Continue Reading →

GoST – Possessor (Blood Music)

I think this is the second or third album by the entity that is GoST but my first encounter, and it is a little hard to tell as there appear to be a whole collection of EPs and stuff online…. Continue Reading →

OPHE – Litteras Ad Tristia Maestrum Solitude (My Kingdom Music)

Not much to go on here, but I did establish that OPHE is a one man avant-garde black metal outfit, and the one man likes people like DHG, Blut aus Nord, Manes and Anorexia Nervosa. So that’s good. As for… Continue Reading →

Warfist / Excidium – Laws Of Perversion And Filth (Godz Ov War Productions)

I was lucky enough to get hold of the album “Metal To The Bone” by Polish leather & stud enthusiasts Warfist last year and it couldn’t have had a more appropriate title so when the opportunity arose to write about… Continue Reading →

Urarv – Aurum (Svart)

This particular album has been a number of years in the making. At the head of Urarv is Björn Aldrahn Dencker of DHG and Thorns. His original idea was a folk-inspired solo album but as time went on, additional musicians… Continue Reading →
