Shining - X - Varg Utan Flock (Season Of Mist)

Shining – X – Varg Utan Flock (Season Of Mist)

The death throes of one shitty year of existence have barely stopped twitching and another one is just about ready to be shat into existence. Same hopelessness, misery, discontent and feelings of negativity and it seems almost perfect that greeting it will be new releases.. Read More
Ofdrykkja - Irrfärd (Avantgarde)

Ofdrykkja – Irrfärd (Avantgarde)

Ofdrykkja has come a long way since its first release, the beguiling (if that’s the right word for a self-confessed depressive suicidal black metal band) and harrowing A Life Worth Losing in 2014. Back then things were strictly lo-fi but that only served to amplify.. Read More
Schattenfall – Schaten In Schwarz (Wolfspell)

Schattenfall – Schaten In Schwarz (Wolfspell)

I had not unsurprisingly thought that this lot were a purely German outfit but although based there looking into things in more detail it appears the trio is has a Ukrainian musician in their ranks too, the drummer of White Ward. Their music is described.. Read More
Talv – Entering A Timeless Winter (A Sad Sadness Song)

Talv – Entering A Timeless Winter (A Sad Sadness Song)

It’s getting colder but kind of taking its time Winter is coming though and it could well be timeless. Will we be walking in a winter wonderland with Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Bing Crosby and Co? Nope very unlikely. We may however be listening to.. Read More
Mourning Dawn – Waste (Aesthetic Death)

Mourning Dawn – Waste (Aesthetic Death)

Last Easter Sunday involved a rare opportunity to see French band Mourning Dawn live at Doom Over London. This one and here I sit writing about their new EP. Pure coincidence that this is, I can’t help getting slightly spooked thinking something may have aligned.. Read More
None – S/T (Hypnotic Dirge)

None – S/T (Hypnotic Dirge)

It’s probably not surprising that there is little in the way of information available about a band called None. They don’t pop up in the normal places you would try and gather facts about everything from band members to releases, inside leg measurements and favourite.. Read More
Vanhelga – Ode And Elegy (S/R)

Vanhelga – Ode And Elegy (S/R)

Before you read the review we are proud to be one of the websites asked to host the brand new accompanying video for “Utan Mening.”  The song used in the video, is the opening track from “Ode & Elegy, the band’s fourth full-length album, and it.. Read More
ColdWorld – Autumn (Cold Dimensions)

ColdWorld – Autumn (Cold Dimensions)

Such are the constant requests for reviewing stuff digitally, I almost missed this one. It was only when people including the band Darkspace were talking about it on social media that I went and had a look and found the promo. Just as well too.. Read More
Freitod -  Der Unsichtbare Begleiter (Ván)

Freitod – Der Unsichtbare Begleiter (Ván)

This is German dark metal band Freitod’s third album. I remembered the previous one “Regenjahre” (2012), which was compact and powerful yet for me lacked completeness. Listening to “Der Unsichtbare Begleiter” (The Invisible Companion), I find it impossible to get away from the idea that.. Read More
Total Negation – Zeitzeuge (Temple of Torturous)

Total Negation – Zeitzeuge (Temple of Torturous)

Seventies rock, albeit with a proggy edge, and black metal might sound like a vomit inducing combination of supermarket own-brand tinned tuna mixed with Himalayan vodka and coke but, it turns out, there’s a man in Germany that can make it work. Maybe it’s just.. Read More
Forgotten Tomb – Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love (Agonia)

Forgotten Tomb – Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love (Agonia)

A new slice of depressive megalomania from Italian misery merchants Forgotten Tomb is always a welcome proposition. Even if musically they have gotten a bit less gloomy since their early more depressive days you can tell by the title of this their eighth full length.. Read More
Shining - IX Everyone, Everything, Everywhere Ends (Season Of Mist)

Shining – IX Everyone, Everything, Everywhere Ends (Season Of Mist)

What a great album title and perfect use of alliteration, airing a complete sense of negativity and disillusionment in just a few words. It can only really mean that everyone’s favourite depressive Swedes are back with their ninth album. I have to admit that I.. Read More
