Nornes – Threads (Sleeping Church Records)

These melodic Doomsters hail from Valenciennes in Northern France and take their inspiration from none other than Candlemass with what sounds like more recent Alcest too. This four track E.P. is a continuation of ‘Vanity’ which came out two years… Continue Reading →

Pistilos Opium – Hibrido (Fallen Temple)

Having previously released a digital and cassette version of this EP in December 2019 Polish label Fallen Temple has seen fit to reissue it on CD format and digitally again. Hailing from Chile, the band has that unique grisly South… Continue Reading →

Dripback – Blessed With Less Than Nothing (4 Family Records)

I fucking love Dripback, ever since they erupted like a giant zit in the face of the metal fans in 2011 with the infectious as ebola (but half as pleasant) “Inhaling The Ashes” EP, this bunch of North London yobs… Continue Reading →

Smoulder – Dream Quest Ends (Cruz Del Sur)

These Canadian’s are no strangers to these pages; their epic doom laden metal hit a sweet spot last year. This release is an EP with two new tracks, a cover version and the three demo tracks from their 2019 demo…. Continue Reading →

Veneration – Thy Infernal (Fallen Temple)

Here is a five track blast of venom from Veneration. from Indonesia. The packaging that comes with this EP from the Indonesian band goes overboard on its black metal credentials. The track titles remind us that everything is infernal, there… Continue Reading →

First of a brace of discs landing on us from Fallen Temple in Poland sees home-grown talent Vermisst (Missing) in action. Relatively a new band forming only in 2018 they already have 2 demos and a split with Plaguespawn to… Continue Reading →

Lychgate – Also Sprach Futura (Debemur Morti)

Assuming this was an album and the follow up to 2018’s 3rd full length ‘The Contagion In Nine Steps’ I got a bit of a surprise on downloading it to discover it was actually a 4 track EP and shorter… Continue Reading →

Pure Wrath – The Forlorn Soldier (Debemur Morti)

Pure Wrath are, despite two full lengths to their name, a new Indonesian one-man band to me and despite the name this is not lo-fi bestial war metal. In fact, as soon as ‘When A Great Man Dies’ begins you… Continue Reading →

Medium – S/T (Transcending Obscurity)

Although the label is based in India head honcho Kunal seems to spend no short amount of time trawling the globe and looking for the best of death and doom to release to a wider audience. Medium from Argentina are… Continue Reading →

Collapsus – Shockwaves Of Decline (S/R)

Collapsus may not be an established household name, especially on these shores, but it may surprise many that they have been in existence since the late 90’s. they released two demos in the 2000’s and have now launched an attack… Continue Reading →

Innards – Back From The Grave, Straight In Your Face (Transcending Obscurity)

Death Metal right now is probably one of the most interesting genres out there and I don’t just mean within the confines of Metal. I feel like the genre has grown to a stage whereby there are so many different… Continue Reading →

Tzun Tzu – The Forbidden City (Lavadome)

Gimmicks in Metal aren’t anything new, from the ridiculousness of the likes of Alestorm to the more intellectual Egyptian themes of Nile. Not to mention all the Lovercraftian and Occult themed artists, it’s pretty safe to say that gimmicks are… Continue Reading →
