Pijn & Conjurer – Curse These Metal Hands (Holy Roar)

Curse These Metal Hands represents a first time collaboration between two trailblazers from the UK’s nascent doom scene; Manchester’s sometime three piece Pijn and Rugby’s Conjurer.  This isn’t so much a typical split EP, instead taking members of both bands… 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 →

Sertraline – From Both Our Hands (Hypnotic Dirge)

First of all, for clarification this is Sertraline from the cold climes of Buffalo, USA, not the north of England one. Second, my enquiries took me to an anti-depressant of the same name. This Sertraline, whose second EP this is… Continue Reading →

The Joy Thieves – This Will Kill That (Armalyte Industries)

Could we have a new industrial super-group combo in the vein of Pigface? Well it would seem that way as The Joy Thieves have on the lead up to debut EP ‘This Will Kill That’ been naming names involved in… Continue Reading →

Wormed – Metaportal (Season Of Mist)

Technical Death Metal has a strange history some love it, others hate it. It’s early days were steeped in impressive musicianship which left a lot of people bewildered, the likes of Atheist, Cynic and Death being among the biggest driving… Continue Reading →

Sykelig Englen – This Hollow Land (Clobber Records / AHPN)

If you read my last review of Sykelig Englen you might wonder what I’m doing with this. Or even why main man Nattskog sent this in to us. Well firstly I desperately tried to be constructive as I could just… Continue Reading →

Denial Of God – The Shapeless Mass (Osmose)

‘Black Horror Metal’ since 1991 apparently; that’s this Danish trio. Now how they’ve got to nearly twenty years of existence in this kind of area without me even coming across them before, other than a vague recognition of their logo… Continue Reading →

Tørrential – Chameleon Wasteland (S/R)

The notes that come with this EP are gracious, and suggest a good deal of intensity. The explanation and much more that this work is the artist’s “sonic trip through inner doubt and emotions” is all the more remarkable for… Continue Reading →

Deflore & Jaz Coleman – Party In The Chaos (Subsound)

If you have never heard of Italian instrumental duo Deflore, well you can no doubt be forgiven. They have never hit my radar despite having four albums out. If however you don’t know who Jaz Coleman is, well shame on… Continue Reading →

Kapala – Termination Apex (Dunkelheit Productions)

For those of you who didn’t catch my review of Kapala’s debut EP Infest Cesspool, here’s the highlights: Aaaaaaaaaaaggggggggguuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! Basically Kapala don’t fuck around. This is bestial war metal of the most fucked up order. Ultra-guttural, ultra-brutal, grinding blackened noise…. Continue Reading →

Monarque – Jusqu’á la Mort (Sepulchral Productions)

I am not the black metal scholar that some of my colleagues definitely are, and this is my first encounter with Canadians Monarque and the proudly independent black metal scene of Quebec. But like every new convert to anything, what… Continue Reading →

NRVK – Thghtlss Lght (Van)

A member of NRVK once went on popular British quiz show Countdown and asked Carol Vorderman (it was an old-school episode) for a vowel and was told no! It obviously affected them seriously judging by their new EP release Thghtlss… Continue Reading →
