My Silent Wake – There Was Death (Minotauro)

My Silent Wake – There Was Death (Minotauro)

Whilst it’s normally the cold North of Yorkshire a band like this would permeate from My Silent Wake hail from Somerset, down south. An understated outfit, they have been going since 2005 and have released 10 studio albums to date as well as a plethora.. Read More
Monads – IVIIV (Aesthetic Death)

Monads – IVIIV (Aesthetic Death)

A monad is the first, an originator or most simple building block from which everything else comes. All of which somehow nicely sums up the inescapable feeling when listening to this type of slow ‘n’ heavy metal – that this is the genre in its.. Read More
Ataraxy – Where All Hopes Fade (Dark Descent Records)

Ataraxy – Where All Hopes Fade (Dark Descent Records)

This gloomily titled album starts off on a suitably dark and sombre note. As they tell us, it goes into death-doom territory but not quite. Such is “The Absurdity of a Whole Cosmos”, the instrumental opener of this second full length album from the Spanish.. Read More
Esoteric – Esoteric Emotions: The Death Of Ignorance (Aesthetic Death)

Esoteric – Esoteric Emotions: The Death Of Ignorance (Aesthetic Death)

Now this is a real relic and not that I want to make anyone feel old or anything but it was quarter of a century ago that we were first exposed to the hallucinatory musical trauma of Esoteric. I can’t remember when I first saw.. Read More
Ocean of Grief – Nightfall’s Lament (Rain Without End)

Ocean of Grief – Nightfall’s Lament (Rain Without End)

Ocean of Grief’s debut EP Fortress of My Dark Self caused a bit of a stir in the doom metal underground with its grand and doleful lamentation that left many a doom death-monger in pit of euphoric dejection. Is this what misery really feels like?.. Read More
Norilsk- Le Passage des glaciers (Hypnotic Dirge)

Norilsk- Le Passage des glaciers (Hypnotic Dirge)

French Canadian Duo Norilsk have followed 2015’s “The Idea of North” with 8 slabs of doom death by the name of “Le Passage des Glaciers”  Norilsk is the most northern city in Siberia and allegedly home to a heavy metal smelting plant. That gives you.. Read More
Into Coffin - The Majestic Supremacy Of Cosmic Chaos (Terror From Hell)

Into Coffin – The Majestic Supremacy Of Cosmic Chaos (Terror From Hell)

This two track, twenty eight minute MCD is my second meeting with the curiously monikered Into Coffin. The title says it all really as far as themes go; we’re in the world of Azathoth and its ilk, Lovecraft’s nuclear cosmic insanity and the roiling chaos.. Read More
Hanging Garden - I Am Become (Lifeforce Records)

Hanging Garden – I Am Become (Lifeforce Records)

‘I Am Become’ is the fifth album by the Helsinki sextet and first with the current line-up. It is also awesome listening for the autumn where the sky is miserably overcast and the days brisk and cold. It’s rather melodic gloominess is rather warming and.. Read More
Paradise Lost – Medusa (Nuclear Blast)

Paradise Lost – Medusa (Nuclear Blast)

Now, if you thought that the veteran gothic/doom metalers had gone back to basics with 2015’s ‘The Plague Within’, wait until you hear this gnarly little fucker. Almost completely devoid of PL’s more grandiose leanings, ‘Medusa’ is certainly their heaviest album to date, but as.. Read More
My Silent Wake - Damnatio Memoriae (Minotauro Records)

My Silent Wake – Damnatio Memoriae (Minotauro Records)

A re-release? From a 2015 original arrival date? What gives? Actually, I have very little idea, but given that this is the first chance I’ve had to listen to the album, it’s all good for me as it goes. Actually, it appears that the album.. Read More
Mourners Lament – We All Be Given (Hammerheart Records)

Mourners Lament – We All Be Given (Hammerheart Records)

So, I placed a bid with Thee Editor to review this album, as I had reviewed an earlier album of theirs some years ago. Or rather, as it turned out, I hadn’t – I’d in fact reviewed another crew entirely, albeit one with a broadly.. Read More
Mourning Dawn – Waste (Aesthetic Death)

Mourning Dawn – Waste (Aesthetic Death)

Last Easter Sunday involved a rare opportunity to see French band Mourning Dawn live at Doom Over London. This one and here I sit writing about their new EP. Pure coincidence that this is, I can’t help getting slightly spooked thinking something may have aligned.. Read More
