Goath – Luciferian Goath Ritual (Ván Records)

Goath – Luciferian Goath Ritual (Ván Records)

The moment you look at the rather disturbing but eye catching cover art alongside the bands fantastic logo you know you’re in for a sinister listen. With only one demo out previously this debut, from the German newcomers, hits the ground at a proverbial gallop... Read More
Obscure Infinity - Dawn of Winter (F.D.A. Rekotz)

Obscure Infinity – Dawn of Winter (F.D.A. Rekotz)

This is a reissue of the German death metal bands debut album, original out on Obscure Domain Productions, an album I actually reviewed 7 years ago too. There are no changes, no fillers, no remastering, it’s simply a re-release. Its old school as you may.. Read More
Entartung – Baptised Into The Faith Of Lust (W.T.C. Productions)

Entartung – Baptised Into The Faith Of Lust (W.T.C. Productions)

I can only really start this in the same fashion of a colleague on review of last Entartung album ‘Peccata Mortalia’ and wonder just why the two key proponents of the band Lykormas and Vulfolaic are considered as “veterans of the old-school black metal scene.”.. Read More
Fäulnis – Antikult (Grau)

Fäulnis – Antikult (Grau)

Out of the blue a sudden announcement came that German Sickblackartists Fäulnis were preparing a new album and I patiently awaited it to fall in my promo in-tray downloading it the second it did. From then I have been immersing myself back in their somewhat.. Read More
Fjoergyn – Lvcifer Es (Lifeforce)

Fjoergyn – Lvcifer Es (Lifeforce)

Perhaps it’s just the subject matter – Lucifer in all his deceitful guises – but things with Fjoergyn have definitely taken a more aggressive and unexpected turn. These guys have always been known for their avant-garde take on black metal and with a melodic twist... Read More
Twinesuns – The Empire Never Ended (Pelagic)

Twinesuns – The Empire Never Ended (Pelagic)

Anyone who’s ever spent several hours in the belly of a cross-channel ferry buried in some cramped sleeping quarters just a little too close to the giant ship’s engine should know what ‘drone’ music sounds like. Indeed, to the uninitiated it can seem like a.. Read More
Wound – Engrained (FDA Rekotz)

Wound – Engrained (FDA Rekotz)

It’s sophomore time for Germany’s Wound, and they hit the nail on the head with ‘Engrained’, a potent mix of black and death metal, with enough traditional styling and spot-on production to satisfy everyone. Following on from 2013’s ‘Inhale The Void’ this record pretty much.. Read More
Hyenas – Deadweights (Pelagic Records)

Hyenas – Deadweights (Pelagic Records)

If you didn’t know Pelagic Records is the label run by Robin Staps from The Ocean who you should recognise. The label is packed with excellent bands ranging from post rock to grindcore as this new proposition from Germany unveils a debut album that keeps.. Read More
Pyogenesis - A Kingdom To Disappear (AFM)

Pyogenesis – A Kingdom To Disappear (AFM)

Pyogenesis are back with the second in what has been revealed to be a Victorian-era themed trilogy of albums which begun in 2015 with “A Century In The Curse Of Time” which was a hard hitting and melodic slice of metal from a band who.. Read More
My Sleeping Karma - Mela Ananda (Napalm)

My Sleeping Karma – Mela Ananda (Napalm)

Translating from Hindi, Mela Ananda means “A gathering of bliss”. This is a rather fitting album title for the first live recording by Teutonic instrumental giants My Sleeping Karma in their ten year career. With MSK already receiving some pretty in depth coverage on this.. Read More
Stygian Temple – In The Sign Of The Five Angles (Sol Records)

Stygian Temple – In The Sign Of The Five Angles (Sol Records)

You kind of know what to expect from a cold, dark name like Stygian Temple and that’s just as well as these Germans don’t go down the normal public Internet route of giving much in the way of information away. Indeed we don’t even get.. Read More
