Locust Leaves – A Subtler Kind of Light (I, Voidhanger)

Locust Leaves have an “ecumenical vision of metal”, whatever that means. In fact when I read the following statement, I realised it was time to stop reading and start listening: “A voice, a final utterance of a vague, illogical, recurring consonant/vowel that can’t be pinpointed.. Read More

1000 Mods – Repeated Exposure To… (Ouga Booga and The Mighty Oug)

Greece seems to have a talent pool of stoner inspired bands. 1000 Mods sit happily amongst them and new album, “Repeated Exposure To…” is a continuation of the band’s growing output. Having supported bands like Graveyard, The Black Keys and Karma To Burn, they’re doing.. Read More

Aenaon – Hypnosophy (Code666)

When I checked, for some reason I wasn’t surprised when I noticed. that this, the third album from Greek ‘progressive black metallers’ Aenaon was on Code666. Just something about its chaotic, semi industrial sound mixed in with the progressive elements. Well at least after it.. Read More

Nox Formulae – The Hidden Paths To Black Ecstasy (Dark Descent)

Nox Formulae are a new one on me but apparently they’ve taken some time out of their busy schedule (trying to free the dark one from behind the thin veil of human reality) to release an album. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out.. Read More
