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
Black Mirrors - Funky Queen (Napalm)

Black Mirrors – Funky Queen (Napalm)

Debut four track EP from Belgian rockers Black Mirrors with a title that for me promises lots and threatens about the same; the kind of title that suggests female singer, low-slung guitar swagger in a doomy style and if you’re lucky a bucket load of.. Read More
Nula - Kenoma (Black Bow)

Nula – Kenoma (Black Bow)

Belgrade based, post-Sludge five piece Nula are rather intense musically. With beer and dope, along with some filthy and heavy sounds as their main influences and being billed as something for fans of Cathedral and Type O Negative, there are some promising signs for this.. Read More
Vermilion Whiskey – Spirit of Tradition (10 South Productions)

Vermilion Whiskey – Spirit of Tradition (10 South Productions)

Another new act, or at least new to me, to review with South Louisiana rockers Vermilion Whiskey and the EP ‘Spirit of Tradition’, and as you might expect, the influences of the American South are there in spades. ‘Road King’ is a chugging tale of.. Read More
Desert Kingdom – S/T (Black Bow Records)

Desert Kingdom – S/T (Black Bow Records)

New band, new EP, new review to be written, so Desert Kingdom’s eponymous EP gets a spin. But hang on, have I made some sort of technological mistake ripping the album, because whilst the player says ‘You’ll Burn’, my brain is saying, “that’s Orange Goblin’s.. Read More
Árstíðir Lífsins – Heljarkviða (Ván)

Árstíðir Lífsins – Heljarkviða (Ván)

Árstíðir Lífsins brewed just as I like it: two 20 minute episodes of their saga-spinning craft delivered with the conviction and attention to detail you might fairly expect from a band whose work is genre-defining in a field of one. Heljarkviða continues the mighty pagan.. Read More
The Ruins of Beverast – Takitum Tootem!  (Van)

The Ruins of Beverast – Takitum Tootem! (Van)

This 2 track EP from The Ruins of Beverast sees the one man Black/Doom project of Alexander von Meilenwald partake of the brown acid and head off into space. This is Black metal for Psychonauts or psychedelic doom for wearers of corpse paint. The Ruins.. Read More
