FDA Demo Series Vol. 1-4 (FDA Records)

Are demos even really a thing any more? What’s the difference between a demo, EP or album? I think the lines have been exceptionally blurred through the passages of time. Anyone can upload any music online now for example and… Continue Reading →

Rotting Kingdom – A Deeper Shade of Sorrow (Godz ov War)

I reviewed Rotting Kingdom’s three track EP back in early 2018 (remember those relatively sane times, readers?), giving it a hefty 8/10, and wanting to hear more. Well, with just a couple of years in the old time-bank, the Kentuckian… Continue Reading →

Paradise Lost – Obsidian (Nuclear Blast)

Sixteen albums… That amounts to an album released every other year of Paradise Lost’s 32-year career. Granted there are some longer breaks than a year, but that’s because they released 7 in in the 1990s. Not only prolific, but damned… Continue Reading →

Funeralopolis – Of Deceit And Utter Madness (Memento Mori Records)

You may recognise this band’s moniker from a song of the same name by Electric Wizard and whilst this Swiss act has a doom like aura they underpin their all their songs with a death metal foundation to produce a… Continue Reading →

Temple of Void – The World That Was (Shadow Kingdom)

At first glance, Doom/Death and Detroit Motor City aren’t natural bedfellows. The city, which is close to my heart due to family connections, has a long tradition of great music; from Motown to garage, from Hardcore punk to Techno, a myriad of… Continue Reading →

Solothus – Realm Of Ash And Blood (20 Buck Spin)

Finnish doom, eh? Well doom death bordering on the funereal anyway. ‘Father Of Sickness’ crawls out of the blocks like a slightly more animated Unholy with a kind of sense of that first Paradise Lost album in the eerie and… Continue Reading →

Esoteric – A Pyrrhic Existence (Season Of Mist)

Not a band who can actually be rushed in any way, it’s been a fairly long wait for Esoteric to deliver the follow up to 2011 album Paragon of Dissonance. Fans have been well catered for though due to plenty… Continue Reading →

Novembers Doom – Nephilim Grove (Prophecy Productions)

I always scratch my head when a band has a month in their name and releases an album at a different time of year completely, might just be me but doom in November from Novembers Doom is at least playing… Continue Reading →

Weeping Sores – False Confession (I, Voidhanger)

Has anyone got any Clearasil? Yes it is the sort of name you might expect from a gangrene enthused grind band but there is perhaps a clue in the word “weeping” as this trio from NYC are a doom death… Continue Reading →

Consecration – Fragilium (Solitude Productions)

I found it really difficult to review this album. Not because it’s bad, but rather because it’s an hour long and only consists of 5 songs, with the opening “In Darkened Slumber” being an ambient amble in a fen that… Continue Reading →

Hex – God Has No Name (Transcending Obscurity)

Death Doom is a genre which has evolved over the years and always had a place in Death Metal’s overall history, just look back to Severed Survival the classic album by Autopsy. It has gone on to form the basis… Continue Reading →
