Bloody Hammers – The Horrific Case Of Bloody Hammers (Napalm)

Kooky Halloween ghouls Anders Manga and Devallia are back after only just hitting us over the head with their last descent into the tool shed ‘Lovely Sort Of Death.’ They certainly caught us off guard with that one too having shifted slightly from the Munster.. Read More

The Black Capes – All These Monsters (Dark Tunes)

I used to DJ a few goth clubs back in the day, most of them had a strict “No Metal” policy, so it was always fun to see what I could get away with on the playlists in the midst of all the drama and.. Read More

Foscor – Les Irreals Visions (Season of Mist)

Foscor have been around as a band since 1997 but it was their last album “Those Horrors Wither” (2014) which captured my attention and made my top 10 for that year thanks to its dark and shadowy intrigue. I was immediately reminded of the atmospheric.. Read More

Inferno – Gnosis Kardias (Of Transcension and Involution) (W.T.C. Productions)

This album has one of those titles that I look at and think “load of old cobblers.” I mean some bands do really pile on the mystical pseudo claptrap don’t they? I want to be able to listen to music without having to spend 20.. Read More

Alunah – Solennial (Svart)

For over a decade now, Alunah has remained one of the UK’s consistently finest purveyors of superb Doom, albeit having had assorted labels such as the very niche “female fronted occult rock” tag that was beloved of so many reviewers. Regardless of how you choose.. Read More

Worm Ouroboros – What Graceless Dawn (Profound Lore)

Worm Ouroboros – What Graceless Dawn (Profound Lore)

Apparently this Oakland based trio take their moniker from a 1922 fantasy novel by Eric Rucker Eddison. Give it a look on the web if Norse style high fantasy is your thang. With that in mind the listener may be expecting dragons to be chased.. Read More

Devilment – II: The Mephisto Waltzes (Nuclear Blast)

When their debut came out 2 years ago I watched the videos that were released, but neglected to go out and grab the album as I wasn’t really too sure I would want to. If it’s anything like their latest release, more the fool am.. Read More
