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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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,… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Drudkh / Hades Almighty – One Who Talks With the Fog / Pyre Era, Black! ( Season Of Mist/ Dark Essence)

An interesting coming together of two acts that are rapidly approaching legendary status within black metal circles, albeit for somewhat different reasons. Drudkh are the enigmatic Ukrainian outfit who never play live, never carry out interviews and have since seen… Continue Reading →

Fuath – I (Neuropa)

Scottish band Saor are a name I have seen about although I don’t appear to have had the pleasure of hearing their two albums or catching them live. Recording wise they are helmed by Andy Marshall who has prolifically been… Continue Reading →

The Wolves of Avalon – Across Corpses Grey (Godreah)

 Look, there’s not going to be any hiding this from you, so we’ll just as well get it out into the open now. “Across Corpses Grey” is a three track release, with a couple of cover versions (of Nokturnal Mortum,… Continue Reading →
