Gatekeeper – Grey Maiden (Cruz Del Sur Music)

From their demo day’s Gatekeeper from Canada have been a touch special. They are one of those groups who may be labelled as a particular sub-genre of metal, but travel well between high standards of a fair few descriptions. In… Continue Reading →

Grendel’s Syster – Orphic Gold Leaves (S/R)

Right, this six tracker is actually a three tracker as three songs are each repeated in English and German. It came in a lovely digipack CD, very cool for a self-release, and appears to be the debut from this German… Continue Reading →

Lethean – The Waters of Death (Cruz Del Sur)

This is a project featuring multi-instrumentalist James Ashbey (Deceptor, ex-Solstice, Craven Idol and Doctor Death) and singer Thumri Paavana. Described as a cross between Doom, Epic Metal and NWOBHM, the thought is quite tempting. Immediately you are dragged into epic… Continue Reading →

BattleroaR – Codex Epicus (Cruz Del Sur)

BattleroaR (still persisting with the capital R at the end of their name so lets humour them and not spoil things eh?) don’t do anything by half. It amazes me that it’s taken them until their fifth album to get… Continue Reading →

Solstice – White Horse Hill (Invictus)

Twenty years. Twenty. Years. Two decades since the classic epic doom sounds of New Dark Age first graced us, and legends Solstice were only actually inactive for five of those. Since then the band have gigged, written, road tested, rewritten,… Continue Reading →

Iron Griffin – S/T (Gates of Hell Records)

This EP is one that has been available for a wee while now through Iron Griffin’s bandcamp page, but thanks to Gates of Hell Records and the efforts of that Italian label, ‘Iron Griffin’ is now getting a bit more… Continue Reading →

Visigoth – The Revenant King (Metal Blade)

Visigoth are a cool epic metal band from Salt Lake City in the States, roll forward a few years since they first caught my attention and we have a major label signing, a new logo and new music…but not in… Continue Reading →

BattleroaR – Blood Of Legends (Cruz Del Sur)

Greek metal outfit BattleroaR (apparently that last capital R is important…) are one of those bands I’ve been aware of for years but save for a fleeting listen a long time ago have never properly crossed my path. So here… Continue Reading →

Interview – Slough Feg

With an excellent new album out in the racks, in Digital Resistance, Ave Noctum decided to track down Mike Skalzi singer, guitarist and writer with US rockers Slough Feg in the internet ether for little chat on the future of… Continue Reading →

Dark Forest – The Awakening (Cruz Del Sur)

I have followed this UK Black Country band for a long time since their demo days, I have admired and enjoyed their live performances for more times than I care to remember, but stone me…Dark Forest have pulled the genie… Continue Reading →

Atlantean Kodex – The White Goddess (Cruz de la Sur)

Now THIS is how you do an Epic Metal album. There has been a simmering sense of anticipation surrounding this Bavarian 5-piece for a good few years now – 2010’s ‘The Golden Bough’ and their Pnakotic Demos certainly caused something… Continue Reading →

Borrowed Time – Borrowed Time (High Roller Records)

Finally! This US band has a debut album out with new tracks and a fresh approach to traditional heavy metal. Their previous EP’s, singles and demos have been of a high standard and this continues to be the case for… Continue Reading →
