Green Lung – Woodland Rites (Kozmik Artifactz)

There now appear to be as many retro minded occult rock bands using Hammer Horror samples as there were films made by those masters of the macabre.  South London’s Green Lung are coughing up their debut Woodland Rites on the date… Continue Reading →

Hexvessel – All Tree (Century Media / Prophecy)

Surely the album title should actually be ‘All Hug A Tree’ but I guess that would have been a bit too obvious even if it is the sort of practice Finnish forest folk Hexvessel do on a daily basis. Not… Continue Reading →

Myrkur & Jo Quail – Manchester Gorilla 22/12/18

My final gig of the year couldn’t have been better, an intimate night of sumptuous musicality in the company of two of the finest proponents of soulful, ambient and passionately intense performances even though headliner Myrkur did a black metal… Continue Reading →

Trees – S/T (Svart)

Judging from the video to the song Out In The Open by the Finish band Trees, the world in still OK in Savonlinna, Finland. You see the band playing their folk rock, immersed in golden, autumnal light, in a house… Continue Reading →

Sigh – Heir To Despair (Candlelight)

Anybody fancy a slice of fruitcake, best grab a jug of saké to wash it down with as this is an album that is going to be hard to digest even by arch nutters Sigh’s standards. The band never exactly… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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,… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
