Into Coffin – Unconquered Abysses (Terror From Hell)

I’m not the sort of person to do things by halves, if I’m into something then I’m into it in a big way. Again, this can be a detriment as I can often times become caught up in my own… Continue Reading →

Echolons))) – Idea Of A Labyrinth (Tonzonen Records)

German Progressive Rock quartet Echolons))) formed in the early 2000’s in Frankfurt Am Main and have a different approach to the one I prefer when it comes to the music they create on the Progressive Rock spectrum. Whereas I usually… Continue Reading →

Pripjat / Hell:On – A Glimpse… Beyond (Crawling Chaos Records)

This German and Ukrainian split release should come as no surprise to fans of either band or the Ukrainian scene as Kirill (vocals, guitar) and Eugen (guitar) of Pripjat both have Ukrainian descent. If you didn’t know Pripjat is an… Continue Reading →

Cryptic Brood – Outcome Of Obnoxious Science (War Anthem Records)

We all have those funny tales and memories to recount from gigs, and thus I shall regal you with one now. Once upon a time me and a friend decided to visit Berlin to watch Amenra with a show comprising… Continue Reading →

Krater – Venenare (Eisenwald)

It has been raining for two weeks straight where I live, and Krater’s new album Venenare certainly isn’t something to brighten the mood. Krater are a black metal band from Germany, and appear to be true to their name in… Continue Reading →

Die Krupps – Vision 2020 Vision (Oblivion/SPV)

Thee Ed expressed a little surprise when I didn’t immediately plump for this album when the lists were released. I had to explain, somewhat embarrassed, that despite my love and long history with industrial and EBM and having been aware… Continue Reading →

[Dolch] – Feuer (Van)

Still keeping up an air of anonymity in the Internet age, which is something increasingly difficult to do, you won’t find a huge amount of information about the players in German act [Dolch]. Their first couple of releases came from… Continue Reading →

Dysangelium – Death Leading (W.T.C.)

Dysangelium have hacked themselves quite a reputation despite only having one long player – Thánatos Áskçsis if you need reminding – and a couple of demos before that. Perhaps proving that its worth bottling yourself up and waiting for the… Continue Reading →

Shrine Of Insanabilis – Vast Vortex Litanies (World Terror Committee)

I saw this German black metal act pulverise the Netherlands Deathfest in 2017 and was obviously impressed by the act but didn’t hear anything from them after that, until now that is where the band unleashes battering obsidian malignancy. The… Continue Reading →

Noorvik – Omission (Tonzonen Records)

If anyone ever mentions German instrumental bands, Long Distance Calling comes into my mind. Noorvik is a new one on me. “Omission” is their second album. We’re led to expect “dynamic arcs of suspense with progressive song structures … an… Continue Reading →

Sacrilegious Rite – De Poetica Tenebris (Dominance Of Darkness)

A seventeen-minute EP comprising of intro and two tracks from German black/death act Sacrilegious Rite. Short and…er.. Well. Not sweet. The intro, a little organ/keyboard passage arrives and ends I have to say to little effect or connection to the… Continue Reading →

Nevaria – Finally Free (Dr. Music)

Nevaria from Bavaria (!) are a relatively new addition to the Symphonic Metal fold. Formed in 2017 they have already shared billing with the likes of Xandria, Axxis and Sabaton and with this their debut studio offering look set to… Continue Reading →
