Strigoi – Abandon All Faith (Nuclear Blast)

Not content with being an original member and driving force behind both bona-fide legendary acts Paradise Lost and newer-but-no-less-impressive Vallenfyre, Gregor Mackintosh returns with his post-Vallenfyre outfit, Strigoi. Accompanying him here is the fellow Vallen-fellow, Chris Casket (currently also of… Continue Reading →

Blood Countess- S/T Demo (S/R)

It’s always a tricky question as to whether to review demos, doubly so when it’s currently Bandcamp only. Triple when it’s a first output. I mean they are demos; demonstrations not finished articles. However I’d been keeping an eye open… Continue Reading →

Ungfell – Mythen, Maren, Pestilenz (Eisenwald)

Ungfell is a one man Black metal project from Switzerland. That one man is Menetekel who has been writing and recording necrotic folk tinged Black Metal since 2014. Being a one man band must mean no creative differences and the ability… Continue Reading →

Arrogant Destruktor / Wrang – Split (Wolfspell Records)

Some major damage going on here. The cover shows a bombed out and totally devastated scene that looks like somewhere such as Dresden in WWII. There’s a tank on the back cover and inside a shiny disc with 2 bands… Continue Reading →

Terra – Mors Secunda (Code 666)

Living in Cambridge, I’d given up on the idea there were any decent local metal bands. It may have an international folk festival but it’s a metal desert. Of course there’s Fen, The Infernal Sea, Eastern Front, Black Polaris and… Continue Reading →

Devilment – II: The Mephisto Waltzes (Nuclear Blast)

When their debut came out 2 years ago I watched the videos that were released, but neglected to go out and grab the album as I wasn’t really too sure I would want to. If it’s anything like their latest… Continue Reading →

Eastern Front – EmpirE (Cacophonous)

I have been following the lead up to Eastern Front’s 3rd campaign quite carefully and it hasn’t exactly been without its shares of drama and casualties. You could even say the Ipswich based blackened war metal crew had found themselves… Continue Reading →

Necronautical – The Endurance At Night (Cacophonous)

Setting sail with their 2nd full-length album, under the flag of resurrected cult label Cacophonous, are voyage-obsessed misanthropic black metallers from the Northwest of England, Necronautical. Presenting themselves with the intensity of a seafaring Eastern Front, ‘The Endurance At Night’… Continue Reading →

Stahlsarg – Comrades In Death (Mighty Music)

It wasn’t that they contain ex-members of Eastern Front and yet still play war-themed blackened death metal that initially intrigued me about UK band Stahlsarg; no it was that they managed to produce their own branded beer before producing their… Continue Reading →

Division Speed – S/T (High Roller)

“Don’t mention the war. I did it a minute ago but I think I got away with it!”. Thus spake the Cleese Spirit down Torquay way. These days there are quite a few willing to get all “World at War”… Continue Reading →

Neptrecus – Frères de Sang (Mortis Humanae Productions)

Black metal de France and this has more than a whiff of the eau de war about it as illustrated on the grim grey artwork and the opening sounds of gunfire and marching boots. Neptrecus debut album ‘L’Aube De Declin’… Continue Reading →

Mor Dagor – Redeemer (Osmose)

Having signed to Osmose Productions late last year, war-obsessed German metallers Mor Dagor have just released their 5th album ‘Redeemer’, and without a doubt, it’s one of the most exciting bombardments of blackened death metal to assault the ears in… Continue Reading →
