Vspolokh – Pomre (Purity Through Fire)

Perhaps an unfamiliar name to most, Russian black metal outfit Vspolokh have been around since 2004. Their debut album was released in 2010, with the intervening decade leading to this sophomore punctuated by a handful of split releases. Google insists… Continue Reading →

Enevelde – Enevelde (Terratur Possessions)

At the helm of this solo project is Norwegian multi-instrumentalist B. Kråbøl who also has another project called Misotheist that I’m not familiar with but has a single self-titled album released in 2018. It appears Mr Kråbøl has decided to… Continue Reading →

Grave Circles – Tome II (Ladlo)

Original released independently on Bandcamp back in December, this debut full-length following the “Tome I” EP from 2017 has been picked up by for rerelease in physical formats. Ukraine has been notorious of late for a slew of Drudkh clones… Continue Reading →

Ruho – The Devout Thrum (Fallen Temple)

Having given the 6 discs from Fallen Temple a spin and offered them out for review this one sat here for a while without being claimed. Great, as when I went back to it for another play I realised in… Continue Reading →

Rattenfänger – Geisslerlieder (Dark Essence Records)

I absolutely loved this Ukrainian band’s debut release, “Epistolae Obscurorum Virorum”, enough to get the vinyl and a shirt a few years ago or so when I heard it. The band maybe Ukrainian (with members of Drudkh at the helm)… Continue Reading →

Ancient Moon – Benedictus Diabolica, Gloria Patri (Iron Bonehead)

Ancient Moon may not be a name that leaps forth from the dark clutching a bloody sacrificial blade when one thinks of occult black metal. But Benedictus Diabolica is one of those albums, in a vast obsidian sea of polytheistic… Continue Reading →

Drudkh – A Few Lines in Archaic Ukrainian (Season of Mist)

Let’s be clear from the outset, this is not a “new” Drudkh album,  rather it is a compendium of Ukrainian black metal poetry pieces which have previously been released across three split EPs. As such, the material will probably be… Continue Reading →

Windswept – The Onlooker (Season Of Mist)

Despite my love for all things Drudkh flavoured, I must confess to not initially being overly enamoured with Windswepts debut album in 2017. The project was conceived by Roman Saenko and his Drudkh/ex-Hate Forest companions as a way of re-capturing… Continue Reading →

Saqra’s Cult – The 9th King (Amor Fati Productions)

It’s not unusual to have bands from one geographic region dipping back in time and getting thematically entranced by a far removed and often ancient civilisation. Just think about the amount of Americans who walk like an Egyptian for example…. Continue Reading →

Vardan – Unholy Lightless Summer (Moribund)

And here we have Vardan back yet again and doing things somewhat differently. This is an album of him being jolly and seasonal covering favourite songs for this time of year. We have interpretations of Mungo Jerry’s ‘In The Summertime,’… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
