Neige Morte – Trinnnt (Division Records)

Experimentation and Black Metal go hand in hand like a bizarre bride and groom. They wander down the isle of obscurity as the shattered windows blow through an ambient, mysterious breeze. The music of the ceremony is a sort of muffled Lo-fi crackle of anguish.. Read More

Insect Ark – Marrow Hymns (Profound Lore Records)

The cover of Insect Ark’s new album Marrow Hymns features a phoenix, the mythical bird that is cyclically reborn. It is not a victorious image, not one that usually comes to mind when the phrase “to rise from the ashes like a phoenix“  is used... Read More

Pissboiler – In The Lair Of Lucid Nightmares (Third I Rex)

Released on the 25th Dec, ok. Well some people get Xmas cards in the post but I got an album by Pissboiler, not that I’m complaining. It gave me some interesting listening over the festering period and as for Lucid Nightmares, they seem to never.. Read More

Opium Warlords – Droner (Svart)

Righteo, cards on the table, this is the most difficult albums I’ve ever had to review. Previously, that title belonged to albums that were either by bands I really liked but who had managed to give birth to a musical turkey, or cases where I.. Read More
