Grima – Will of the Primordial (Naturmacht)

As the UK basks temporarily in a heatwave, what better thing to listen to than “eight ice-cold tracks, filled with gloomy atmosphere, bringing the fragile beauty and hostility of Siberian nature to life”. This is Grima’s third album release. “Siberian… Continue Reading →

Written In Torment – Maledictus Dies Illa (S/R)

So here I am again, part three of what has turned out to be a trilogy of reviews for Yorkshire UKBM. One way or another Blood Countess, Sathamel and now this one man project of mastermind Leviathan have strong links… Continue Reading →

Vltimas, Fen & De Profundis – London Underworld 21/6/19

There has been plenty to entertain today and firstly we are all amused no end of a certain band of wimps and posers crying and throwing toys out of prams in France. There’s plenty more excitement from those on the… Continue Reading →

Fen – Stone and Sea (Eisenwald)

In honour of their region of origin, the EP “Stone and Sea” is “a tribute to the crumbling coastlines of Eastern England and the spirits that lie restless beneath the waters”. Incredibly this is Fen’s tenth release, including the first… 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 →

Seventh Genocide – Toward Akina (Third I Rex)

Warhorns Festival – The Venue, Selby, 21-23/9/17 Part 2

Friday 22/9 Ah, the first full day session, and a bright day in Selby. Fed and watered we arrived to a slight delay due to Petrichor sadly having to pull out because of personnel issues. So first up we had… Continue Reading →

Eoront – Another Realm (Code 666)

The whole concept of this intrigued me. Eoront is an atmospheric black metal project from Siberia. This is their third album. Nature pours through the opening track “The Rain”. The drops of water can be heard and there is a… Continue Reading →

Fellwarden – Oathbearer (Eisenwald)

Fellwarden is the solo project of The Watcher from Fen (ably supported by Fen drummer Havenless) and whilst you should not necessarily think too long on the relationship between solo projects and a musician’s main band I think here a… Continue Reading →

Akercocke, Fen, The Infernal Sea, Sathamel Leeds, Belgrave Music Hall 7/4/17

With not being able to attend the Ritual Festival after this pre fest warm up show due to a gig clash with Taake in Manchester, this was the next best thing as the hyper busy venue sports a traditional long… Continue Reading →

Primordial, Fen & Crom Dubh – London Underworld 31/3/17

It seems like every band under the sun is playing at the moment. Scotland looks to be the place to be this weekend with not 1 but 2 stellar one day festivals on and indeed the hardiest at this show… Continue Reading →
