Winterfylleth, Meus, Wolcensmen – London St Pancras Old Church 24/9/18

Winterfylleth, Meus, Wolcensmen – London St Pancras Old Church 24/9/18

It’s not often we get an invite to church, certainly not from a band known (mainly) for playing black metal. Winterfylleth are not about any form of satanic shtick though and as latest acoustic album The Hallowing Of Heirdom has further proven they are all.. Read More
Cor Scorpii - Ruin (Dark Essence Records)

Cor Scorpii – Ruin (Dark Essence Records)

‘Ruin’ is the second album by Melodic Black Metal band Cor Scorpii, a mere decade after their début was released. It was recorded over a period of three years in various locations, has guest vocalists Annika Beinnes and Mats Lerberg, along with new lead guitarist.. Read More
The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices feat. Lisa Gerrard – BooCheMish (Prophecy)

The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices feat. Lisa Gerrard – BooCheMish (Prophecy)

Now, this is really something completely different. Something we probably haven’t covered here yet and you most likely haven’t come across so far. This is neither dark folk nor neo folk, nothing related to a Northern tradition, this is pretty much traditional folk – traditional.. Read More
Thy Catafalque – Geometria (Season of Mist)

Thy Catafalque – Geometria (Season of Mist)

Getting to grips with the wonders of Thy Catafalque is like wrestling with an agile, ever morphing, psychedelic serpent that wants to love you to death. In fact, as you can perhaps tell, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to convey the emotional intensity the band manages.. Read More
Ivar Bjornson & Einar Selvik – Hugsja (ByNorse Music)

Ivar Bjornson & Einar Selvik – Hugsja (ByNorse Music)

This is the second collaboration between Enslaved and Wardruna luminaries Ivar Bjornson and Einar Selvik after the success of their Skuggsja work. If you enjoyed that album, then there’s no reason why this follow up shouldn’t snuggle up right next to it. I mean, firstly,.. Read More
Winterfylleth - The Hallowing Of Heirdom (Candlelight)

Winterfylleth – The Hallowing Of Heirdom (Candlelight)

This album is one of those conundrums, a work that initially is both unexpected and yet such an obvious one too when just a moment of thought is given to it. But still, again, somehow surprising that they actually went and did it. If you.. Read More
Ungfell – Mythen, Maren, Pestilenz (Eisenwald)

Ungfell – Mythen, Maren, Pestilenz (Eisenwald)

Ungfell is a one man Black metal project from Switzerland. That one man is Menetekel who has been writing and recording necrotic folk tinged Black Metal since 2014. Being a one man band must mean no creative differences and the ability to get shit done quick.. Read More
Sol Invictus – Necropolis (Prophecy)

Sol Invictus – Necropolis (Prophecy)

It has been a while since we last heard from Tony Wakeford and Sol Invictus. Indeed an announcement came that the prolific singer songwriter who has been steering this band through an ever-intriguing path since 1987 and practically inventing the neo-folk or folk-noir genre was.. Read More
Zeresh - Sigh for Sigh (999 Cuts)

Zeresh – Sigh for Sigh (999 Cuts)

Zeresh is a project from Tamar Singer, one half of Israel’s folk noir duo Cruel Wonders, whose ‘Gentle Doom’ album was released last year. An enchanting, but claustrophobic listen, ‘Gentle Doom’ had its folk sensibilities very much to the fore, but with Zeresh, Tamar takes.. Read More
Bhleg – Solarmegin (Nordvis)

Bhleg – Solarmegin (Nordvis)

It’s a daunting prospect – an album that’s 98 minutes long and basically about how great the sun is. I worried it would be like watching endless re-runs of “Wish You Were Here” with Judith Chalmers being gradually baked in the Mediterranean, but thankfully we’re.. Read More
Panphage – Jord (Nordvis)

Panphage – Jord (Nordvis)

It’s always kind of odd when the first time you hear of a band it comes with a PR sheet that informs you that it’s their final album. Well such is the case with black metal one man band Panphage and the man behind it.. Read More
LÜÜP - Canticles of the Holy Scythe (I, Voidhanger)

LÜÜP – Canticles of the Holy Scythe (I, Voidhanger)

While LÜÜP may be the brainchild of Greek composer and multi-instrumentalist Stelios Romaliadis, it’s far from a solo project and while I usually comment on individuals on each song, a quick look at the discography on their official site where you can list the musicians on.. Read More
