Endezzma – The Arcane Abyss (Pulverised)

Endezzma – The Arcane Abyss (Pulverised)

Pure Norwegian devil worship here! Endezzma was borne to rotten life by Trondr Nefas of Urgehal (R.I.P) along with Morten Shax. There’s been line-up changes aplenty but somehow the band have managed to soldier on and principally includes live members past and present of acts.. Read More
Doedsvangr – Satan Ov Suns (Immortal Frost Productions)

Doedsvangr – Satan Ov Suns (Immortal Frost Productions)

Tread carefully for we are about to enter the fields of death! Doedsvangr may well be a new name to us but the unholy triumvirate behind this cult are not. Lead singer of Nordjevel and Svartelder Doedadmiral, has collaborated with Tsjuder sticksman Anti-Christian and Shatraug.. Read More
Saille - Gnosis (code 666)

Saille – Gnosis (code 666)

I remember being impressed with Belgian band Saille’s debut album “Irreversible Decay” in 2011, since when they’ve released two more epic black metal albums and now a fourth in “Gnosis”. This album is a concept album based around “Prometheus: Poem of Fire”. This seems ideal.. Read More
Stygian Temple – In The Sign Of The Five Angles (Sol Records)

Stygian Temple – In The Sign Of The Five Angles (Sol Records)

You kind of know what to expect from a cold, dark name like Stygian Temple and that’s just as well as these Germans don’t go down the normal public Internet route of giving much in the way of information away. Indeed we don’t even get.. Read More
Crimson Moon – Oneironaut (World Terror Committee)

Crimson Moon – Oneironaut (World Terror Committee)

Crimson Moon’s main man Scorpios Androctonus comes with impressive pedigree from associations with bands such as Melechesh, Demoncy and Ancient, where he’s recently picked up bass guitar duties, and, the most appropriate and illustrative link, to Acherontas. Not only did Androctonus provide Acherontas guitars and.. Read More
The Loom of Time – NihilReich (ATMF)

The Loom of Time – NihilReich (ATMF)

Paraded as a “novel blend of black metal, death metal and doom”, the publicity for this album draws in such names as Marduk, Immortal, Emperor, Candlemass and Angel Witch. It all sounds too much for me. Sure enough, the opening track “The Ashes of Your.. Read More
Khaospath - For The Devil Speaks The Truth (Immortal Frost)

Khaospath – For The Devil Speaks The Truth (Immortal Frost)

I have to admit that I found this, the sophomore album from Swedish band Khaospath a little tricky to review. It’s definitely not one for the casual black metal fan or an introduction to the genre which I consider a good thing; something about the.. Read More
Astral Winter – Forest of Silence (Immortal Frost)

Astral Winter – Forest of Silence (Immortal Frost)

Anyone for a bit of seasonal black metal? I’m not talking Mortiis dressed in a red Santa hat wrapping boxes of untold horror with human skin. I’m referring to something altogether more high-minded: exquisite arboreal landscapes of frost and snow; swirling eddies of ice particles.. Read More
Death Fetishist – Clandestine Sacrament (Debemur Morti)

Death Fetishist – Clandestine Sacrament (Debemur Morti)

Darkness has become very dark indeed these days. Rarely is that more so than in the work of Ævangelist mastermind Matron Thorn whose black metal has been providing a cutting edge for the scene for some time now – with the emphasis on the word.. Read More
Interview – Okkultokrati

Interview – Okkultokrati

Fresh from the release of fourth album ‘Raspberry Dawn’ and four dates into their European tour with Trap Them and Venom Prison, Norwegian weirdos, Okkultokrati, are in need of a well earned rest. We took a load off with BlackRace (guitars), Verminscum (drums) and Feffe.. Read More
Anaal Nathrakh – The Whole Of The Law (Metal Blade)

Anaal Nathrakh – The Whole Of The Law (Metal Blade)

If you have been following Anaal Nathrakh since their demo days and in more recent years putting yourself through the gruelling assault course of their live shows on a yearly basis you should know a few things. Firstly where their name actually derives from, how.. Read More
Astronoid - Air (Blood Music)

Astronoid – Air (Blood Music)

This is the first full length album of self-proclaimed dream thrash-shoegaze metal from Astronoid out of the USA and follows two previously released EP’s. Thrash and shoegaze sound like an interesting combination. The band explain this away by referring to aggression and pop structures, and.. Read More
