Disbelief - The Symbol of Death (Listenable Records)

Disbelief – The Symbol of Death (Listenable Records)

Is it really seven years since Disbelief released “Heal!”? Time flies, I guess, and I remember enjoying it a fair bit when it was released, with their mid-tempo meat-and-potatoes take on death metal. One of Germany’s most reliable death metal bands, having been active since.. Read More
Interview – MANTAR

Interview – MANTAR

German duo, MANTAR, are in the midst of tearing through Europe, annihilating one city at a time with their explosive blackened sludge interpretations of punk rock. We caught up with vocalist/guitarist Hanno ahead of their show at the Black Heart in Camden – the van.. Read More

Morast – Ancestral Void (Totenmusik / Ván Records)

I have previously mentioned in my review of the Venenum album that Germany has fast become a major force within the death metal scene as another act vies for prominence. The band’s debut demo in 2015 was a crawling insidious slab of gruelling malfeasance as.. Read More
Mantar – The Spell (Nuclear Blast)

Mantar – The Spell (Nuclear Blast)

What happens when you release an album but still have unheard leftovers? You release an EP! This is exactly what German duo, Mantar, chose to do when they finished recording 2016’s ‘Ode to the Flame’. The first two tracks, ‘Pest Crusade’ and ‘Age of the.. Read More
Venenum – Trance Of Death (Sepulchral Voice)

Venenum – Trance Of Death (Sepulchral Voice)

If you pay attention to the death metal scene like I do almost religiously it has to be said you’ll quickly realise that Germany is producing some of the best death metal bands around surpassing their forebears with staggering, challenging and identifiable releases and now.. Read More
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
