Stahlsarg - Mechanisms of Misanthropy (Non Serviam Records)

Stahlsarg – Mechanisms of Misanthropy (Non Serviam Records)

Stahlsarg were formed in 2013, and still have their original line up of Eissturm on vocals and guitars, Krieg joining him on guitars, Destruction pounding on the bass and Eisenfaust providing the back bone on the drums, and they have gone from strength to strength.. Read More
Owls, Trolls & Dead Kings' Skulls: The Art Of David Thiérrée David Thierree with Dayal Patterson (Cult Never Dies Publishing)

Owls, Trolls & Dead Kings’ Skulls: The Art Of David Thiérrée David Thierree with Dayal Patterson (Cult Never Dies Publishing)

If you go to your favourite official download site, or wander around the CD racks if you still do, you’d assume that the art of the album cover has been mostly lost and what little remains is predominantly generic Photoshop images so pointless and emotionless.. Read More
Inferno Festival – Oslo, Norway 12-15th April 2017 Day 3

Inferno Festival – Oslo, Norway 12-15th April 2017 Day 3

Day Three Friday 14th April Good Friday brought day three of the festival and I couldn’t wait for things to get underway. With things not kicking off until 1730, I had a lie in and then took the opportunity for a bit of a mooch.. Read More
Örth – Nocturno Inferno (Satanic Art Media)

Örth – Nocturno Inferno (Satanic Art Media)

1996 was a vintage year for black metal releases. Heaven Shall Burn.., Antichrist, Stormblast, Filosofem, Nemesis Divina, Aspera Hiems Symfonia. I could go on just as easily as I could fill in the band names to go with these classics but you know them well.. Read More
Wardruna – Runaljod - Ragnarok (By Norse)

Wardruna – Runaljod – Ragnarok (By Norse)

What better way to introduce Ragnarok, the third and final part of Wardruna’s 8-year trilogy, with a towering battle hymn to Tyr. One of the less readily recognised Norse gods these days (at least for non-metal fans I should perhaps add), but he was undoubtedly.. Read More
From the Vastland - Chamrosh (Immortal Frost)

From the Vastland – Chamrosh (Immortal Frost)

I was impressed with From the Vastland’s 2013 album “Kamarikan”, since then there’s been one further release prior to this one. What impressed me was the intensity of the black metal which this one man maelstrom from Iran generated. The gentleman in question has moved.. Read More
Gloomy Grim – The Age Of Aquarius (Satanath Records)

Gloomy Grim – The Age Of Aquarius (Satanath Records)

I gotta be honest, I really struggled with ‘Under The Spell Of The Unlit’, the 2008 release from Finnish symphonic black metal crew Gloomy Grim. On spec, it pretty much ticked all the boxes, however despite the excellent playing and disturbing moments of atmosphere, its.. Read More
VIII - Decathexis (Third I Rex)

VIII – Decathexis (Third I Rex)

So obscure is the artwork and sleeve of this album that unless I’d been told in advance, I would have struggled to work out that this is the second album by VIII from Sardinia. The listening experience is entirely different, as VIII take us on.. Read More
Between The Frost & Evnar – From The Roots 1993-2105 & E.V.N.A.R. Albums (Winter Demons)

Between The Frost & Evnar – From The Roots 1993-2105 & E.V.N.A.R. Albums (Winter Demons)

I’m throwing these two in together as both Spanish bands have intertwined members and a lot of common ground between them. Both albums have been recently released by Winter Demons and offshoot of the Darkwoods label who embrace all things black, pagan and folk related.. Read More
Behexen – The Poisonous Path (Debemur Morti)

Behexen – The Poisonous Path (Debemur Morti)

Back in 2008, Finnish black metallers Behexen stood somewhat at a musical crossroads. Having released their 3rd record (and some might say “breakthrough” album) ‘My Soul For His Glory’, it was evident that the band had taken the blasting fury and crusty elements of their.. Read More
Interview - Kampfar

Interview – Kampfar

All has been very busy in the Kampfar Kamp. Delivering their excellent 7th album Profan at the tail end of last year, it seems like they have hardly stopped since. Hitting the road with Gorgoroth and Gehenna on the back of the album they cut.. Read More
Sulphur – Omens of Doom (Dark Essence)

Sulphur – Omens of Doom (Dark Essence)

With band members from Gorgoroth, Enslaved, Aeternus and Vulture Industries, and with further connections in the productions and mastering to Taake and Audrey Horne, this album is like Norwegian statement. There’s the added mystery of the band not having released anything since their second album.. Read More
