Sjukdom – Stridshymner Og Dodssalmer (Osmose)

Sjukdom are as barren and bleak as the Norwegian landscape thy hail from. This is the bands second release, ‘Stridshymner Og Dodssalmer’, and is not to be confused with releases by bands with the same moniker from Sweden and USA…. Continue Reading →

Aeternus – Heathen (Dark Essence Records)

In common with their name, Aeternus seem to have been around forever. The lynchpin is Ares, who founded the band from Bergen in 1993 and has been the epicentre of a band, which has historical and current links with many… Continue Reading →

Sinsaenum – Repulsion for Humanity (earMUSIC)

Sinsaenum is the brain child of Dragonforce bassist, Frederic Leclercq, who back in 2010 formulated some ideas to create a death metal beast. These ideas weren’t cemented into the metal worlds foundations until 2016, when Stephane Buriez, of Loudblast, and… Continue Reading →

Ovate – S/T (Soulseller Records)

Ovate announce their arrival on the ever evolving black metal scene with their eponymous debut album, boasting a veritable smorgasbord of guest artists from the Norwegian black metal community, and making a bold statement as they trample across sub-genre boundaries…. Continue Reading →

Myrkraverk- Naer Doden (Blut & Eisen Productions)

Another year and another debut black metal album from the icy wastelands of Norway, this time it’s from a duo with a formidable pedigree under their bullet belts. The duo is led by Infamroth of ‘Throne Of Katarsis’ and ‘Skuggeheim’… Continue Reading →

Deathcult – Cult Of the Goat (Soulseller Records)

With the pedigree that this trio exhibit, this record should be astronomical in its deliverance of pure, raw, dirty black metal, and it should be a true masterclass in the production of blasphemous black arts. The trio, made up of… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
