Ecnephias – Seven: The Pact Of Debauchery (My Kingdom Music)

The aptly titled album is the seventh by the Italian trio, and the third I’ve been privileged to review. As is their want their lyrics are both in English and Italian, with the latter songs seeming far broodier and melancholy… Continue Reading →

Nornes – Threads (Sleeping Church Records)

These melodic Doomsters hail from Valenciennes in Northern France and take their inspiration from none other than Candlemass with what sounds like more recent Alcest too. This four track E.P. is a continuation of ‘Vanity’ which came out two years… Continue Reading →

Telepathy – Burn Embrace (Svart Records)

It seems like only yesterday that post rock quartet Telepathy had released their debut EP ‘Fracture’ and were supporting the likes of Latitudes at small pub venues. Fast forward nine years and the band are now on their third full-length… Continue Reading →

Velnias – Scion of Aether (Eisenwald)

Yes, there have always been Fissures Within The Construct. Now that they have become apparent, everyone can see them, and the more time goes by, the wider they get, turning into broad cracks and large fractures. Velnias are from Nederland,… Continue Reading →

The Medea Project – Sisyphus (S/R)

Their bio says that while they are currently in Nottingham, UK, they hail from the east coast of South Africa, which I have an issue with, as that’s over 2000km worth of coast to figure out where they come from…. Continue Reading →

Have you ever heard of “Lucifer”? No folks, I don’t mean the medieval Judaeo-Christian bogey man of old worshipped by Ghost, I mean the Scandewegian occult tinged hard rock band! “No”? Well, let me just say, you are wrong on… Continue Reading →

Death, Void, Terror – To The Great Monolith II (Repose Records)

I know we (well mainly me actually) make the occasional quip about receiving the new soundtrack to the apocalypse but fuck me has it not got even more real over the last couple of weeks? No need to elaborate, I’m… Continue Reading →

Smoulder – Dream Quest Ends (Cruz Del Sur)

These Canadian’s are no strangers to these pages; their epic doom laden metal hit a sweet spot last year. This release is an EP with two new tracks, a cover version and the three demo tracks from their 2019 demo…. Continue Reading →

Lychgate – Also Sprach Futura (Debemur Morti)

Assuming this was an album and the follow up to 2018’s 3rd full length ‘The Contagion In Nine Steps’ I got a bit of a surprise on downloading it to discover it was actually a 4 track EP and shorter… Continue Reading →

Pyre of Descent – Peaks Of Eternal Light (Terror From Hell Records)

Hailing from Berlin, Pyre of Descent are a band that have flown under the radar of this particular scribe, their eponymous 2018 release now being followed by ‘Peaks Of Eternal Light’. A combination of the band name, upbeat album title,… Continue Reading →
