Esoteric – A Pyrrhic Existence (Season Of Mist)

Not a band who can actually be rushed in any way, it’s been a fairly long wait for Esoteric to deliver the follow up to 2011 album Paragon of Dissonance. Fans have been well catered for though due to plenty… Continue Reading →

Pando – Negligible Senescence (Aesthetic Death)

Last year I reviewed Hiraeth by Pando. I say review. What I actually did was try and convey how the madness that Adam Bryant and Matt Gagne made me feel.  These two artists are genre fluid and combine field recordings, conversations,… Continue Reading →

Evoken – Hypnagogia (Profound Lore)

Apparently Evoken state that they wanted “to present the listener with an emotionally exhausting record” and they have certainly done that, I have fallen asleep several times listening to this. That’s not a criticism in the slightest, I just find… Continue Reading →

Druj – Chants To Irkalla (Godz Ov War)

Irkalla is the ancient Mesopotamian underworld and when they are not at home in Anchorage Alaska it is where Druj dwell. I’m not sure if there is a huge difference between the locations having the idea form in my head… Continue Reading →

Pantheist – Seeking Infinity (Melancholic Realm Productions)

It’s not just the music that can be slow and laborious as far as funeral doom is concerned but also the time waiting patiently for it to arrive. There’s no DIY grindcore approach here, one take, a quick thrash and… Continue Reading →

Eye Of Solitude / Marche Funèbre – Split (Hypnotic Dirge)

Two well respected bands in extreme doom circles go at it together for this split release, both with one track each. Due to the genre as you would expect that does not mean a shortage of material in any respect… Continue Reading →

Lychgate – The Contagion In Nine Steps (Blood Music)

It is time to crawl through the Lychgate and enter a graveyard of ghoulish and macabre sounds once more. Be prepared for the weird, wonderful and downright ghastly sounds from a portal to another world to confront you in all… Continue Reading →

Esoteric – Esoteric Emotions: The Death Of Ignorance (Aesthetic Death)

Now this is a real relic and not that I want to make anyone feel old or anything but it was quarter of a century ago that we were first exposed to the hallucinatory musical trauma of Esoteric. I can’t… Continue Reading →

Slow – V Oceans (Code666)

It’s all in the title, this is slow stuff and album number 5 from Belgium bred but Bulgarian based Déhà who is aided here lyrically and conceptually by Lore. Digging deeper there is a bit more meaning into the name… Continue Reading →

Nortt – Endelight (Avantgarde Music)

It seems that this year there has been no shortage of kvlt edge-lords thinking it is clever releasing albums over the festering period. It’s not like most of them will find their way into the few remaining record shops around… Continue Reading →

Spectral Voice – Eroded Corridors Of Unbeing (Dark Descent Records)

It is quite possible that Dark Descent is one of my favourite record labels and has been for the past few years due to the continual output of top quality extreme music they release and this debut full length from… Continue Reading →
