Dool – Summerland (Prophecy)

It’s true that there is not a huge amount to look forward to at the moment and we have to take the pleasures where we can. Thank goodness for music and this is something that I and no doubt anyone… Continue Reading →

Dominia – The Withering Of The Rose (MSH Music Group)

Melancholy, inescapable heartache, night of despair, loss, exhausting, plaintive tears, velvet darkness. Just a few of the buzz-words in the promotional information that the record company kindly arms us writers with when preparing to do a review of this latest… Continue Reading →

Malvento – Pneuma (Third I Rex)

I should feel guilty for never coming across Malvento in their 20 odd years of existence but then again there are many “cult Italian” acts so shrouded in obscurity within the underground that there are no shortage of them to… Continue Reading →

The Slayerking – Sanatana Dharma (Finisterian Dead End)

‘Sanatana Dharma’ is the debut album from Greek band The Slayerking, a side-project fronted by Nighfall’s Efthimis Karadimas, and featuring Kostas Kyriakopoulos on guitar and Anna Eleftherou on drums. The first thing you may notice is the CD’s cover, bearing… Continue Reading →

Motus Tenebrae – Deathrising (My Kingdom)

While this may be my first experience of Italian doomsters Motus Tenebrae, they’ve been together since 2001, a miserabilist five piece that have released an impressive four full length albums prior to this slab of grief. Look, before we get… Continue Reading →

Draconian – Sovran (Napalm)

2015 has been a particularly strong year for fans of the gothic doom sound, not least for the fact that two of the giants of the genre have released their strongest albums in some time. In doing so both Paradise… Continue Reading →

Hanging Garden – Blackout Whiteout (Lifeforce)

Finland. Dark, brooding, cold, moody, grey, a little oppressive and a bit gloomy. I’m talking about their more popular brand of Metal of course – I’m sure the country is lovely – but like their Scandinavian brothers, the Finns do… Continue Reading →

Restless Oblivion – Sands of Time (Solitude)

I’ve been a long-time fan of Solitude Productions approach to business, clearly sticking to what they know and trying to give wider exposure to the bands they put their weight behind. I’ve discovered many excellent artists within the doom spectrum… Continue Reading →

Lethe – When Dreams Become Nightmares (Debemur Morti)

If you’re looking for seamless meeting of metal and electronica that’s just as suited to a Sunday morning as a Friday night, you may have just stumbled into the right place. When Dreams Become Nightmares is the band’s first platter… Continue Reading →

Rise of Avernus – L’Appel Du Vide (Code 666)

Australia may not be the first place you think of when you go looking for metal, but it seems to be the case that it’s quality over quantity where they are concerned. Take Rise of Avernus for example. These Sydney… Continue Reading →

Mournful Gust – For All The Sins (Bad Mood Man)

I was initially attracted to Mournful Gust for the most childish of reasons in that they had a name that made me giggle, much like my fascination with Greek death metallers Ancient Balls. Being a fan of the Eastern European… Continue Reading →

When Nothing Remains – Thy Dark Serenity (Solitude)

Johan Ericsson has what I would describe as a touch of Peter Tägtgren syndrome, in so much as he is a complete workaholic. Not satisfied with being guitarist for gothic doom heavyweights Draconian, he is also the driving force at… Continue Reading →
