Vanguard X Mortem – Amberosia (Noir Carrousel)

Vanguard X Mortem – Amberosia (Noir Carrousel)

“Baroque” is not a word you will often hear as a descriptor for a metal band, but that is exactly how Vanguard X Mortem describe themselves, as well as “Symphonic, Atmospheric and Vampyric”. Sound interesting? Then read on….. Formed in Paris in 2011, Vanguard X.. Read More
Monolithe – Nebula Septum (Les Acteurs de l’Ombre)

Monolithe – Nebula Septum (Les Acteurs de l’Ombre)

Hard to believe that Monolithe is now on its seventh album, and still up to its old tricks – seventh album, seven tracks, each at seven minutes, there are seven musicians that worked on this album, the first letter of each track is according to.. Read More
Azziard – Metempsychose (Malpermesita Records)

Azziard – Metempsychose (Malpermesita Records)

Pulling this CD out of its wrapping I remembered the band name and that this deathly black troop from France had struck me as slightly bonkers on last album ‘Vesanie’ in 2014. At the time they had been in the midst of exploring the not.. Read More
Greyfell - Horsepower (Argonauta Records)

Greyfell – Horsepower (Argonauta Records)

Greyfell is a relatively new band from Rouen (France), who released their first album, “I Got the Silver” in 2015. I have to admit that I missed that release, so I’m happy to get a new chance with the second one, which is called “Horsepower”... Read More
Milkilo - Atlas (Vox Project)

Milkilo – Atlas (Vox Project)

This intriguing-sounding album is in fact this French bass and drum noise duo’s first, but having been around for seven years they have been honing their ideas, touring and releasing a trio of EPs. I don’t know at what point this band started but what.. Read More
Aosoth – V: The Inside Scriptures (Agonia)

Aosoth – V: The Inside Scriptures (Agonia)

Has it really been four years since the last Aosoth full-length (IV: Arrow In Heart)? Man, time flies. It seems like only the other day that that record landed and further cemented Aosoth’s position as being one of the more focussed, reliable and downright convincing.. Read More
Can Of Worms - Nuclear Violence (Great Dane)

Can Of Worms – Nuclear Violence (Great Dane)

The four piece French Thrashers with a serious interest/obsession with all things nuclear are back again with album number 3; Nuclear Violence. Given the current political climate regarding all things nuclear, the post-apocalyptic leaning, deathy-thrash outfit seem to have their finger on the pulse and.. Read More
Ixion – Return (Finisterian Dead End)

Ixion – Return (Finisterian Dead End)

There have always been two elements to Ixion’s sound – the funeral doom slog and the uplifting keyboard vibes to balance it all out. It worked nicely on Into the Void, which was more what most would consider to be an outright doom album even.. Read More
Silver Wind - Legion Of The Exiled (No Remorse)

Silver Wind – Legion Of The Exiled (No Remorse)

Silver Wind embrace the very essence of what helped to make Germany the go-to European Power Metal place in the late 80’s – unashamedly proud of the Teutonic legacy their brand of Power Metal proudly displays. They are of course French, just to throw a.. Read More
Caïnan Dawn - F.O.H.A.T. (Osmose)

Caïnan Dawn – F.O.H.A.T. (Osmose)

Caïnan Dawn’s last opus hit me like a lorry load of corpse paint. Rumbling, muscular black metal with a mission to drown you in wave upon wave of bass-heavy sound that requires nothing more of you than to stop, listen and give yourself up to.. Read More
Spectrale - Triangle (Ladlo Productions)

Spectrale – Triangle (Ladlo Productions)

Firstly here the album title is actually a symbol of a triangle so just get that in your head and think about going through that shape in the Play School Window (showing my age here). Secondly, well this album is one I had to put.. Read More
Perturbator – New Model (Blood Music)

Perturbator – New Model (Blood Music)

I, probably like many other metal heads in the world, got into Perturbator aka James Kent, via the “Dangerous Days” album released in 2014 which for me was a chance listen when browsing the Blood Music bandcamp pages just sampling what the label had to.. Read More
