Wederganger / Urfaust  - Split (Ván Records)

Wederganger / Urfaust – Split (Ván Records)

I’ve been a fan of Wederganger since I saw them at Eindhoven Metal Meeting 2016, and I have heard a lot of good things about Urfaust and have been keen to check them out, but somehow, I have never got around to it. So, when.. Read More
Dö - Astral: Death/Birth (S/R)

Dö – Astral: Death/Birth (S/R)

There are some folks who actually read my reviews I’m told, and if you are one of those rare types, you may well have heard me praising the works of Deaf Hank, Big Dog, and Joe E. Deliverance, three individuals who when they come together.. Read More
The Chant – Approacher (Lifeforce)

The Chant – Approacher (Lifeforce)

We’ve got some gothic-tinged dark melancholic atmospheric rock/metal on our hands here from where else than Finland. As I’ve mentioned before, the pedigree Scandinavia has for the dark and slightly morose is plentiful, as we are all aware, and The Chant are out to add.. Read More
Heavy Temple – Chassit (Van Records)

Heavy Temple – Chassit (Van Records)

There’s so much good music in the world, gems hidden in a sea of the bland and the bilious, and too little time to go looking for it (“first world problem”, as I believe the youngsters like to say.), which is why this reviewing lark.. Read More
Moss Upon The Skull - Scourge of Ages (S/R)

Moss Upon The Skull – Scourge of Ages (S/R)

Belgian death metal? Why, Ambassador, you spoil us. This is the first 6 track EP from the five chaps from Brussels, and they’ve clearly decided that you need to experience them free of any expectations of which type of death metal to pigeon hole them.. Read More
Loathfinder – The Great Tired Ones (Godz ov War)

Loathfinder – The Great Tired Ones (Godz ov War)

Top marks to Loathfinder (no I’ve no idea what a Loath is or where to find one) for clocking in at full ambitious tilt on their first outing. The Great Tired Ones are a total mystery to me too, by the way, and I’m none.. Read More
Ecferus – Shamaniacal Essence (Hellthrasher Productions)

Ecferus – Shamaniacal Essence (Hellthrasher Productions)

Of all the extreme metal genres, black metal is, for me anyway, the only one that carries off the one-man band idea. This US act, under the creative eye of Alp, is exceptionally good and with a slew of EPs and a couple of full.. Read More
Dautha – Den Förste (Ván)

Dautha – Den Förste (Ván)

It might seem to regular viewers that I’d use any old excuse to crowbar my favourite albums from the 1980s into reviews whenever possible. But this year is the 30th anniversary of nearly everything ever, so it’s time to brace yourselves, folks. And hard. So.. Read More
Mantar – The Spell (Nuclear Blast)

Mantar – The Spell (Nuclear Blast)

What happens when you release an album but still have unheard leftovers? You release an EP! This is exactly what German duo, Mantar, chose to do when they finished recording 2016’s ‘Ode to the Flame’. The first two tracks, ‘Pest Crusade’ and ‘Age of the.. Read More
Medico Peste – Herzogian Darkness (W.T.C. Productions)

Medico Peste – Herzogian Darkness (W.T.C. Productions)

This form of pestilential darkness comes to us via Poland and a calibre of musicians who have been involved past and present, on and off stage with the likes of Old Woods Grave, Mgla, Clandestine Blaze and Mord A’Stigmata. Speaking of Stigmata there’s a cover.. Read More
Cirith Gorgor – Bi den Dode Hant (Hammerheart Records)

Cirith Gorgor – Bi den Dode Hant (Hammerheart Records)

My first encounter with Cirith Gorgor was about 15 years ago when they blackened my life thanks to a track on a sampler. Although I never did anything more about it at the time, I didn’t forget the name of this band, whose sample made.. Read More
