Pagan Altar – The Room Of Shadows (Temple Of Mystery)

Pagan Altar – The Room Of Shadows (Temple Of Mystery)

Having begun life in the late 70’s just as the enormity of the NWOBHM movement was unfolding, Pagan Altar were one of the few British doom bands starting out from that period. Given their interrupted lifespan, album output has been relatively sporadic with most of.. Read More

The Necromancers – Servants Of The Salem Girl (Ripple Music)

The Necromancers will be a new name to many, but Ripple Music (home to plenty of top Doom, Stoner and Psych bands) are relishing the task of releasing this French outfits impressive debut. Another clue to their style is that they have recently been sharing.. Read More
Demon Eye – Prophecies and Lies  (Soulseller Records)

Demon Eye – Prophecies and Lies (Soulseller Records)

Was it really a whole two years ago that I was sitting down at this very keyboard to review Demon Eye’s last rather good release ‘Tempora Infernalia’, I rhetorically ask? Yep, a quick check through the archives of my laptop and Ave Noctem confirm this,.. Read More
False Gods – Reports From Oblivion (S/R)

False Gods – Reports From Oblivion (S/R)

I had clocked the name of this NY based bunch swirling around the ether of the internet and thought they must be worth checking out considering they are self-released and only have previous EP prior to this one. Also it was impossible to resist as.. Read More
End of Green – Void Estate (Napalm Records)

End of Green – Void Estate (Napalm Records)

“Dark. Loud. Stuttgart” is what’s written about End of Green. I’m not sure what image I’m supposed to have of Stuttgart other than a picture of urban Germany. I’m not entirely convinced about the “loud” part either as what I was listening to was a.. Read More

Ecnephias – The Sad Wonder Of The Sun (My Kingdom Music)

‘The Sad Wonder Of The Sun’ is the sixth album by the this Italian quintet from Potenza and the second time I get to review them, first time being their self-titled release 2 years ago. Their dark wave inspired Gothic metal is delivered with all.. Read More

The Medea Project – S/T (S/R)

Not to be confused with the theatrical group for incarcerated women, that’s not to be said that their namesake, The Medea Project as a band, do not show a certain thespian flair. Having been around for some time with many members through their stage doors.. Read More
Tchornobog – S/T (I, Voidhanger)

Tchornobog – S/T (I, Voidhanger)

The man behind this work talks about wrestling with his own demons. Accordingly this self-titled album of four long tracks is about psychological disorder and hallucinations. So the initially deep and deathly “The Vomiting Tchornobog (Slithering Gods Of Cognitive Dissonance)” finds itself descending into imperious.. Read More
Venomous Maximus - No Warning (Shadow Kingdom)

Venomous Maximus – No Warning (Shadow Kingdom)

Texans aren’t generally known for doing things on a small scale so when it comes to generosity with classic sounding riffs we should be able to expect something big from the Lone Star state. Venomous Maximus bring in said generosity with third long player, “No.. Read More
Interview - Bloody Hammers

Interview – Bloody Hammers

They’re creepy and they’re kooky mysterious and spooky. Nope let’s not go down that route even if their world is a little on the strange and horrific side. Bloody Hammers consist of Anders Magna and Devallia who pass their time making dark, gothic doom music,.. Read More
Poseidon – Prologue  (Ripple Music)

Poseidon – Prologue (Ripple Music)

If you’re not yet familiar with Poseidon, then I think it is time you changed that, and ‘Prologue’ may well be the album to help you. Developing from the single track ‘Omega’ that was released over a year ago, the band have clearly been away,.. Read More
Bloody Hammers – The Horrific Case Of Bloody Hammers (Napalm)

Bloody Hammers – The Horrific Case Of Bloody Hammers (Napalm)

Kooky Halloween ghouls Anders Manga and Devallia are back after only just hitting us over the head with their last descent into the tool shed ‘Lovely Sort Of Death.’ They certainly caught us off guard with that one too having shifted slightly from the Munster.. Read More
