I caught the Fenriz approved Irish band Zom recently at Live Evil Festival and was pretty much blown away by their on stage presence and sound. They conjured up a fearsome brand of occult death metal that reminded a lot… Continue Reading →

Darkthrone – Under a Funeral Moon (Peaceville)

Deathhammer – Onward to the Pits (Hells Headbangers Records)

Isengard – Vinterskugge (Peaceville Records)

Album (re-release with bonus commentary cd) When I first heard the music of Isengard, the solo project of Darkthrone’s Fenriz, it was like enlightenment. I guess it was about 10 years ago. I was into Black Metal and had heard… Continue Reading →
