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

Necros Christos – Domedon Doxomedon (Sepulchral Voice)

Can an album be too long? Arguably if you are a music fan then your attention span towards audio should be at least the same if not more than that of visual media, that said lengthy albums still seem to remain a novelty or even.. Read More
Hekate – Totentanz (Prophecy)

Hekate – Totentanz (Prophecy)

Hekate, who have been around since 1991, are one of Germany’s better known neofolk or dark folk bands. They play a mixture of folk, medieval and classical music, using historical and classical instruments, but also synthesizers, thus creating their very own sound. In the past,.. Read More

Slaughterday – Abattoir (FDA Records)

Man I love a bit of Slaughterday. This German band are super consistent in their output and I had the pleasure of reviewing their last EP 2014s “Ravenous” and this is a nifty little follow up to 2016’s  full length “Laws Of The Occult”. Now,.. Read More
Alkaloid – Liquid Anatomy (Season of Mist)

Alkaloid – Liquid Anatomy (Season of Mist)

It was clear from the outset that this was not going to be a boring listen. Certain expectations go with the epithet Progressive Death Metal, I suppose, and even on the opening track of this, Alkaloid’s second album, we had gone through numerous iterations. “Kernel.. Read More

Commander – Fatalis (The Unbroken Circle) (Black Sunset / MDD Records)

  This nineteen year old quartet are releasing their third album, a decade after their last release. And a fine album it is. Their style of old school death metal filled with some doomy and thrashy elements works well in delivering an album that is.. Read More
Crematory – Oblivion (SPV)

Crematory – Oblivion (SPV)

I’ve doubtless gone on record as saying how much I liked Crematory’s “Revolution” album (2004) and how everything since has been a worthy offshoot of that, but I say it again as I now consider the merits of “Oblivion”, the German band’s 14th (yes, fourteenth).. Read More
Antlers – Beneath.Below.Behold (Totenmusik/Ván Records)

Antlers – Beneath.Below.Behold (Totenmusik/Ván Records)

When Deafheaven released its masterpiece “Sunbather” in 2013, it created a rift in the black metal scene. On one side, there were those who dismissed this new wave as not being black metal at all, while on the other side an increasing amount of artists.. Read More
Goath – II: Opposition (Ván)

Goath – II: Opposition (Ván)

I can just imagine the scene down at the Goath hell-bunker when finished copies of the last album arrived – debut Luciferian Goath Ritual. Goathammer: ‘Muerte, can I speak to you for a minute. We just got the album back from the printers over in.. Read More

Cherokee – Wakan Tanka Nici Un (Dying Victims)

I have followed this German band since their first Bandcamp release, in fact over the last couple of years, this source has been excellent for finding new artists. This is their latest 4-track MLP, released on Dying Victims productions, a great label I know well.. Read More
Ascension – Under Ether (World Terror Committee)

Ascension – Under Ether (World Terror Committee)

In the words of Varg Vikernes “It has nothing to do with Satanism” which may well be true for a lot of Black Metal, particularly the earlier tones of for example Burzum. However that doesn’t mean that the shadow of the beast hasn’t been present.. Read More
Tortuga -  When The Shit Hits The Fan (Black Chest Records)

Tortuga – When The Shit Hits The Fan (Black Chest Records)

Aha! It’s my own personal talk like a pirate day, again, and despite my misgivings about this whole alleged genre and the need to have a serious word with Alestorm, I find myself swabbing the decks and splicing the main brace once more with Tortuga... Read More
