Avatarium - Hurricanes and Halos (Nuclear Blast)

Avatarium – Hurricanes and Halos (Nuclear Blast)

Jeez Leif – take a break man! I’ve only just reviewed Candlemass (and the rest…) bassist Leif Edling’s impressive Doomsday Project album earlier this year and here’s a new Avatarium album vying for attention. I’m sure right now he’s working on some new Candlemass stuff,.. Read More

Nephilim’s Howl – Through The Marrow Of Human Suffering (I, Voidhanger)

Nephilim’s Howl have been in existence since 2015 and were hatched from the Finnish black metal underground, and now bring to us their first offering, “Through The Marrow Of Human Suffering”, via one of the most inimitable labels, I, Voidhanger. The bands sound, if it.. Read More
The Ruins of Beverast – Exuvia (Van)

The Ruins of Beverast – Exuvia (Van)

Back in January of this year I was bowled over by the psychedelic cosmos of Takitum Tootem the E.P. Now here is its big sister/brother all grown up but still floating in space but this time within Earth’s atmosphere. More of an out of body.. Read More
Where The Sun Comes Down – Welcome (Minotauro)

Where The Sun Comes Down – Welcome (Minotauro)

It’s not often we get discs turn up with covers that appear to be drawn by children in felt tip pen and there’s something a little bit unsettling about it all. In fact this album by Where The Sun Comes Down takes a lot of.. Read More
Sabbath Assembly – Rites Of Passage (Svart)

Sabbath Assembly – Rites Of Passage (Svart)

It’s always fascinating following a band from conception through various stages, wondering what they are going to come up with next. Sabbath Assembly have certainly kept the interest levels up with their body of work since dabbling with the hymnals and esoteric mysteries of The.. Read More
Ex People – Bird  (New Heavy Sounds)

Ex People – Bird (New Heavy Sounds)

It’s always good to hear new music, and equally good to hear a band that is a bit different and willing to walk their own path, something that Ex People are happy to do with their first full length release ‘Bird’. The LP starts of.. Read More
Temptation's Wings – Skulthor Ebonblade (S/R)

Temptation’s Wings – Skulthor Ebonblade (S/R)

Accompanied as it was by one of the politest written requests for review it’s ever been my joy to receive, North Carolina’s own Temptation’s Wings are a band I’d never heard of but are one that immediately intrigued me, the album cover of ‘Skulthor Ebonblade’.. Read More
Barathrum – Fanatiko (Saturnal)

Barathrum – Fanatiko (Saturnal)

Finnish black metal nutters (and I realise that is not a particularly useful descriptor to distinguish one Finnish black metal band from another) Barathrum have some serious catching up to do. This follow up to their last album, 2005’s Anno Aspera: 2003 Years After Bastard’s.. Read More

Drug Honkey – Cloak Of Skies (Transcending Obscurity)

It’s been a long time brewing in the meth lab, we have not heard from musical chemists Drug Honkey since 2012 when they released last album ‘Ghost In The Fire.’ The Illinois based band have always been interesting and I have been following their dealings.. Read More
Warcrab – Scars Of Aeons (Transcending Obscurity)

Warcrab – Scars Of Aeons (Transcending Obscurity)

I like the simple things, in music as well as in life. Let me explain….. Now in “real life” I’m somewhat of an accomplished barbecue chef. While I enjoy, and get a kick out of doing long, slow cooks like briskets and pork shoulders where.. Read More
Gurt- Skullossus (When Planets Collide)

Gurt- Skullossus (When Planets Collide)

Gurt are fast gaining a reputation as British underground heavy metal favourites with a loyal following. Coming from the same mould as fellow sludge lords Bong Cauldron and Slabdragger, they also share a stylistic commonality with North American bands like Weedeater and Dopethrone. Theirs is.. Read More
