Total Hate – Throne Behind a Black Veil (Eisenwald)

Powerful and authoritative from the opening chords, Total Hate set the precedent from the offset. The vocals on ‘Psychopath’ are dominant and potent and work together with Aer and Erebos on the guitars, with Serrator creating the formidable and controlling… Continue Reading →

Osi and the Jupiter – Grå Hest (Eisenwald)

In recent years there has seemingly been a healthy surge in acoustic neofolk outfits and although at face value this style may be a world apart from most metal outfits, the genre has been adopted by large swathes of the… Continue Reading →

By The Spirits – Visions (Eisenwald)

By The Spirits is a relatively new one man project hailing from the Lower Silesian region in the southeast of Poland founded in 2016 by Michal Krawczuk. Visions, the album at hand, is the solo artist’s first long player, though… Continue Reading →

Panzerfaust – The Suns Of Perdition: Chapter I: War, Horrid War (Eisenwald)

How have I not alighted on this band previously? World War II (loosely) themed Canadian black metallers Panzerfaust have been kicking around for a while now but, with only three albums before this, it’s perhaps understandable they could have flown… Continue Reading →

Idle Hands – Mana (Eisenwald)

The inventiveness of the wider metal genre never ceases to amaze and delight me. Every once in a while, a band comes along that gives a familiar sound a new twist, a twist that I did not expect, making me… Continue Reading →

L’Acéphale – S/T (Eisenwald)

A 74 minute album takes dedication not just to make but for the listener to consume as well. When you think about it is the equivalent of a 3 hour movie and a lot to take in. Musically you would… Continue Reading →

Nusquama – Horizon Ontheem (Eisenwald)

A bit of Dutch black metal never did anyone any harm, and here we have some from Nusquama, whose members play with Fluisteraars, Laster and Turia. “De Aarde Dorst” starts and continues with magnificent, fiery intensity. Hairs are made to… Continue Reading →

Fen – Stone and Sea (Eisenwald)

In honour of their region of origin, the EP “Stone and Sea” is “a tribute to the crumbling coastlines of Eastern England and the spirits that lie restless beneath the waters”. Incredibly this is Fen’s tenth release, including the first… Continue Reading →

Werian – Animist (Eisenwald)

Whistling winds, chasmic echoes and moody melancholy are always good. To be fair, there’s a lot more than this in this carefully crafted epic journey from Werian, an old German word that has to do with werewolves, shamanism and the… Continue Reading →

Fluisteraars – Luwte (Eisenwald)

The ever-reliable Eisenwald label delivers the goods here yet again by unearthing a real underground talent. In keeping with the label’s philosophy, this Dutch trio successfully blend soaring melody, palpable aggression and a tangible, arboreal atmosphere on their second full-length… Continue Reading →

Vargnatt – Grausammler (Eisenwald)

Having listened to and enjoyed what seems like hundreds of bands with ’Varg’ somewhere in their name over the years, all with similarly monochromatic artwork and icily stern looking band members, I figured I’d probably get a kick out of… Continue Reading →

Vivus Humare – Einkehr (Eisenwald)

Featuring members of the short-lived but much vaunted Alchemyst, Thuringian outfit Vivus Humare formed way back in 2007 but it is only now, nearly eight years later, that they present a full-length recording to the world courtesy of the ever-reliable… Continue Reading →
