Mother Of Millions – Artifacts (ViciSolum)

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of this band. I’ve covered both their previous releases (‘Human’ and ‘Sigma’) and hold both of those albums in high regard. The Athenian 5 piece progressive metal band have carved… Continue Reading →

Shibalba – Stars Al-Med Hum (Agonia)

This here is a collaboration between Greek and Swedish luminaries from Acherontas and Nastrond. Being on Agonia you expect a degree of class and seriousness and it certainly doesn’t disappoint in that respect; there’s a deep, lush production here which… Continue Reading →

Lucifer’s Child – The Order (Agonia)

Appearing seemingly out of nowhere ‘The Wiccan’, debut album from Lucifer’s Child impressed no end. No surprise about that really as the Greek band comprises of members of Rotting Christ, Nightfall and Chaostar instrumentally along with the singer from Karma… Continue Reading →

Nochny Dozor – S/T (Prophecy)

A band from Greece with a Russian name, singing in English, named after a fantasy novel by a Russian author. How does all of that fit together? And how is it connected to their debut EP’s cover design featuring a… Continue Reading →

Archemoron – Year of the Harvester (Southern Prayer)

Archemoron issued forth a cracking album in 2015 with Sulphur and Fire – both nuanced and powerful, like all the best Greek black metal. It turned a few heads and, even though I’d argue that it should have received more… Continue Reading →
