Drudkh – They Often See Dreams About The Spring (Season Of Mist)

There was apparently a bit of s scrum to get this review, and I was the lucky winner. but before I begin, let’s address the elephant in the room…..I am often told that I shouldn’t listen to Drudkh as they are “right wing”, and am.. Read More
Bhleg – Solarmegin (Nordvis)

Bhleg – Solarmegin (Nordvis)

It’s a daunting prospect – an album that’s 98 minutes long and basically about how great the sun is. I worried it would be like watching endless re-runs of “Wish You Were Here” with Judith Chalmers being gradually baked in the Mediterranean, but thankfully we’re.. Read More
Vardan – Nostalgia: Archive Of Failures IV-VI (Moribund)

Vardan – Nostalgia: Archive Of Failures IV-VI (Moribund)

I really hope Vardan is getting some sort of recognition for all his work, there’s simply no way you can say he is not trying and he has such a huge body of it the real problem is that someone wanting to listen just won’t.. Read More

Jute Gyte / Spectral Lore – Helian (I, Voidhanger Records)

Black metal has its innovators and then it has individuals like Jute Gyte’s Adam Kalmbach and Ayloss from Spectral Lore. Kalmbach is nothing short of prolific with 27 full-length albums since 2006, perhaps not that unusual in the black metal community, but rather than album.. Read More

Drudkh / Paysage d’Hiver – Somewhere Sadness Wanders / Schnee (IV) (Season Of Mist)

Drudkh’s recent wave of splits feels like they have been a liberating experience for the band. Free from the relative confines of producing a full crop’s worth of Ukrainian grief and solitude, the Drudkh frontman Roman Sayenko et al have been spending time cultivating and.. Read More

Grift – Arvet (Nordvis Produktion)

Swedish nature-gazer Erik Gärdefors is the person behind everything we hear in Grift. He has worked with others in bands such as Insult, Orcivus & Arfsynd but has gone it very much alone here following up debut album Syner and splits with the likes of.. Read More

Hermóðr – Hädanfärd (Wolfspell)

Swedish musician Rafn has been involved in no shortage of bands through his musical journey, from Abysmal Silence through Endless Woods and even with a bit of Sodomizing Christ going down. Hermóðr along with Mist and Deadlife seem to be his current on-going musical outlets.. Read More
Fellwarden – Oathbearer (Eisenwald)

Fellwarden – Oathbearer (Eisenwald)

Fellwarden is the solo project of The Watcher from Fen (ably supported by Fen drummer Havenless) and whilst you should not necessarily think too long on the relationship between solo projects and a musician’s main band I think here a little connectivity is in order... Read More

Windswept – The Great Cold Steppe (Season of Mist)

Windswept represents yet another outlet for the prolific mind behind some of the most renowned acts to have emerged from Ukraine over the last fifteen years (Hate Forest, Drudkh, Blood of Kingu) – one Roman Saenko – to engage in a further expression of the.. Read More
Lorn – With Claws Arrayed (I, Voidhanger)

Lorn – With Claws Arrayed (I, Voidhanger)

It’s been more than three years since Lorn made its mark with Subconscious Metamorphosis – appropriately enough its first outing on that most fitting of labels for avant-garde black metal I, Voidhanger. The band had hinted during its previous full-length, and the odd split in.. Read More
Liber Null – I, The Serpent (Osmose)

Liber Null – I, The Serpent (Osmose)

Thorns (drums) who seems to head up this band has his fingers in multiple bands with Blut Aus Nord being the most recognised. Ably assisted by Ades (guitar and bass ) and Psaalm on vocals this debut release is packed with surprises amongst a black.. Read More

Drudkh / Grift – Betrayed By The Sun / Hägringar (Season of Mist)

So many black metal split releases from frontline bands have emerged over the past 12 months that frantic collectors must be having to take out new mortgages to keep up. But if it’s a nicely balanced EP – including the excellent cover very much in.. Read More
