Tristwood – Blackcrowned Majesty (S/R)

I gotta say I had never heard of Tristwood. These Austrian Industrial Black metalheads have flown under my radar since their inception at the start of the Millennium. There has been a bit of to and fro for them but… Continue Reading →

KHÔRA – Timaeus (Soulseller Records)

While this may not be as amusing as I’m making it out to be, I think this album is ahead of the curve. This is not just because it was recorded between 2017 and 2019, but… Drums and guitars were… Continue Reading →

Hexvessel – Kindred (Svart)

If ever there was a time to take a brief respite from madness and apocalyptic extreme metal it is now and thankfully some relief is at hand. Just over a year after last album ‘All Tree’ Finnish forest folk band… Continue Reading →

Dodheimsgard, Bölzer, Blaze Of Perdition, Matterhorn – London Underworld 10/12/19

The Void Dancers MMXIX Tour swings into London on a cold, wet and miserable Tuesday night and I was not sure how well attended it was going to be with so much happening including Taake at this very venue in… Continue Reading →

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)

With a six year gap between albums one may have thought that Aura Noir had been (Hung) Out To Die but the trio are back like a waft of rotten air and that’s something I am more than happy about…. Continue Reading →

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 →
