Kval – Laho (Hypnotic Dirge Records)

So it’s back to life, emptiness and chaos from the solo artist Kval from Finland who professes to a liking for Burzum. This is a follow up to his impressively bleak self-titled release of 2017. “Laho” comprises five weighty pieces…. Continue Reading →

Celestial Grave – Secular Flesh (Iron Bonehead)

When a band releases their first full length album upon the world, there is a definite air of anticipation. When said band have decided to keep the limits of the release to a total of 4 tracks totalling just over… 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 →

Krypts – Cadaver Circulation (Dark Descent)

I think the reason that I love Death Metal so very much is because of how eclectic it is. The lyrical themes that are covered are broad and enticing, and the musicianship equally so. If you want to take the… Continue Reading →

French label Great Dane Records have come to notice a few times in the last couple of years and have done a decent job in getting some underground death metal bands some exposure and, true to form, they’ve done it… Continue Reading →

Vargrav – Reign In Supreme Darkness (Werewolf Records)

As we move ever closer to the summer months I find my adoration for Black Metal and Blackened music dwindling. Essentially I am like a Metal tortoise, in the sun I flourish with the brighter more energetic tones of Death,… Continue Reading →

Chevalier – Destiny Calls (Gates Of Hell)

Well I haven’t been as initially non-plussed by a band as Finland’s Chevalier since the first time I heard Cirith Ungol. I mean after the intro of ‘Destiny Calls’, ‘The Immurement’ drops in like the band were up-ended out of… Continue Reading →

Forgjord – Ilmestykset (Werewolf Records)

Forgjord have been around since the mid 90’s, lurking in the Finnish Black Metal underground . In true BM fashion their output has hardly been prolific – Ilmestykset being their fourth long player. However what they lack in volume of… Continue Reading →
