Arroganz - Erzketer (FDA Records)

Arroganz – Erzketer (FDA Records)

A bit of a short one for you this time. Arroganz, the German trio, released their “Primitiv” album back in 2017, which I awarded then an 8/10, saying at the time, “…this has the superficial sound of a band that’s going for the bludgeoning approach,.. Read More

Ultha – The Inextricable Wandering (Century Media)

Ultha have been playing their trade together since 2015, releasing two acclaimed albums alongside several EPs and split releases, and this quartet from Cologne now unveil their third full length. The six songs here span a mighty 65 minutes in length, taking the listener on.. Read More
Glanville – First Blood (Fat and Holy)

Glanville – First Blood (Fat and Holy)

Glanville are from Germany, whilst they have a strong presence based upon the reviews I have seen, the music for me brings another line of enquiry to the table. This is simple hard rock, it has a cool twin guitar to the 5 tracks in.. Read More
Earth Ship - Resonant Sun (Pelagic)

Earth Ship – Resonant Sun (Pelagic)

For the last few weeks, I’ve been mostly listening to music wallowing in misery, sickness and despair. Predominantly post metal and some experimental stuff. It agreed with me, but like someone eating the same meal every day for days on end, I got tired of.. Read More
Weak Aside – Forward Into Darkness (FDA Records)

Weak Aside – Forward Into Darkness (FDA Records)

Another good ‘un from FDA Records here with the third full length from Germany thrashy death machine Weak Aside. I wasn’t familiar with the lads prior to receiving this but a bit of a blast through in the car on the way to and from.. Read More
Infestus – Thrypsis (Debemur Morti)

Infestus – Thrypsis (Debemur Morti)

I remember the second album ‘Chroniken des Ablebens’ from Infestus back a decade ago in 2008 but our paths do not seem to have crossed since then. The German outfit who have had various past members in their ranks now appears to be a one.. Read More
Thron - Abysmal (Listenable Records)

Thron – Abysmal (Listenable Records)

Ah, the mid-to-late nineties. When Dissection were the daddies of melodic black metal, Cradle Of Filth hadn’t yet gone through that short but awkward novelty phase, Emperor were recording classic albums instead of cashing in on them with phoned-in reunions, and Varg… well, Varg was.. Read More
Brainstorm - Midnight Ghost (AFM)

Brainstorm – Midnight Ghost (AFM)

Surely Brainstorm are a true example of a Metal band that found a style, pushed it to its ultimate and stuck with it, accumulating and keeping fans with every album. On the menu is always heavy, intense powerful Metal every time and it’s why their.. Read More
Necronomicon - Unleashed Bastards (El Puerto Records)

Necronomicon – Unleashed Bastards (El Puerto Records)

While they may have been around for 34 years now, Necronomicon only released four albums before taking a 10-year hiatus between ’94 and ’04, and are now releasing their ninth album without appearing to have lost any vitality along the way. Sedately building the riffs.. Read More

The Clouds Will Clear – Recollection Of What Never Was (Tonzonen)

The Clouds Will Clear are a four-piece post-rock instrumental band from Frankfurt, Germany, and Recollection Of What Never Was is their first full-length album. In 2014 they had released a self-titled EP. The overall impression, after having listened to the album quite a few times,.. Read More
Farsot / ColdWorld split - Toteninsel (Lupus Lounge)

Farsot / ColdWorld split – Toteninsel (Lupus Lounge)

This is a fascinating work. “Toteninsel” or “Island of the Dead” is the name of a painting by the Swiss Symbolist artist Arnold Böcklin. This album is based on the imagery of that painting. Farsot, who in their time have been responsible for some thoroughly.. Read More
Moto Toscana – Self Titled (Tonzonen Records)

Moto Toscana – Self Titled (Tonzonen Records)

Moto Toscana is a trio with four strings and a drum kit between them.  Is less more?  The fact that Andy (vox) Michi (distorted bass) and Chrisch (Drums) describe themselves as Sludgefunk/Disco Doom piqued my interest. Add into that their claim – which I have no reason.. Read More
