Fading Bliss - Journeys In Solitude (Malpermesita Records)

Fading Bliss – Journeys In Solitude (Malpermesita Records)

With titles like the above it would be a fairly safe bet that we would be in funeral doom territory with this Belgian group, and indeed that is the case. Four tracks and around forty five minutes: Ocean, Mountain, A Forest, Desert. A journey indeed... Read More
Interview - Bell Witch

Interview – Bell Witch

This interview is one of several which was originally done for a printed publication. Due to production issues it never made it to press, so is being published here along with several others over the coming week or so. ‘Mirror Reaper’ is a record that.. Read More
Adversvm – Aion Sitra Ahra (Iron Bonehead)

Adversvm – Aion Sitra Ahra (Iron Bonehead)

Even deep within its granite wells of abject sorrow and glorious heaviness, it’s still difficult to find much to surprise in the depths of funeral doom these days. Perhaps that’s because many of its proponents regard deviating from the true path of catatonic gloom to.. Read More
Eye Of Solitude / Marche Funèbre – Split (Hypnotic Dirge)

Eye Of Solitude / Marche Funèbre – Split (Hypnotic Dirge)

Two well respected bands in extreme doom circles go at it together for this split release, both with one track each. Due to the genre as you would expect that does not mean a shortage of material in any respect as the numbers weigh in.. Read More
Et Moriemur – Epigrammata (Transcending Obscurity)

Et Moriemur – Epigrammata (Transcending Obscurity)

Is it always enough to try and sound the same as everyone else, can riffs ever grow tiresome. I guess the answer lies in the ears of the listener, but certainly in my experience of reviewing for a number of years I can tell you.. Read More
Towards Atlantis Lights - Dust Of Aeons (Transcending Obscurity)

Towards Atlantis Lights – Dust Of Aeons (Transcending Obscurity)

Towards Atlantis Lights brings together members of various bands including Pantheist and Void Of Silence, who have crafted an album utilising experiences based on historic events. However, be under no illusion, this is no mere retrospective tale in the style of Iron Maiden; dark emotion.. Read More
Monads – IVIIV (Aesthetic Death)

Monads – IVIIV (Aesthetic Death)

A monad is the first, an originator or most simple building block from which everything else comes. All of which somehow nicely sums up the inescapable feeling when listening to this type of slow ‘n’ heavy metal – that this is the genre in its.. Read More
Esoteric – Esoteric Emotions: The Death Of Ignorance (Aesthetic Death)

Esoteric – Esoteric Emotions: The Death Of Ignorance (Aesthetic Death)

Now this is a real relic and not that I want to make anyone feel old or anything but it was quarter of a century ago that we were first exposed to the hallucinatory musical trauma of Esoteric. I can’t remember when I first saw.. 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
Faal – Desolate Grief (Ván Records)

Faal – Desolate Grief (Ván Records)

When an album is called “Desolate Grief”, it’s not very hard to guess what the music will sound like. Dutch doomsters Faal have put a fitting name on their latest album, which sounds bleak and devoid of hope, while radiating an atmosphere of utter despair... Read More
Slow – V Oceans (Code666)

Slow – V Oceans (Code666)

It’s all in the title, this is slow stuff and album number 5 from Belgium bred but Bulgarian based Déhà who is aided here lyrically and conceptually by Lore. Digging deeper there is a bit more meaning into the name rather than just plonking Slow.. Read More
Pissboiler – In The Lair Of Lucid Nightmares (Third I Rex)

Pissboiler – In The Lair Of Lucid Nightmares (Third I Rex)

Released on the 25th Dec, ok. Well some people get Xmas cards in the post but I got an album by Pissboiler, not that I’m complaining. It gave me some interesting listening over the festering period and as for Lucid Nightmares, they seem to never.. Read More
