Jute Gyte / Spectral Lore – Helian (I, Voidhanger Records)

Jute Gyte / Spectral Lore – Helian (I, Voidhanger Records)

Black metal has its innovators and then it has individuals like Jute Gyte’s Adam Kalmbach and Ayloss from Spectral Lore. Kalmbach is nothing short of prolific with 27 full-length albums since 2006, perhaps not that unusual in the black metal community, but rather than album.. Read More
Meden Agan – Catharsis (No Remorse)

Meden Agan – Catharsis (No Remorse)

“Catharsis” is the fourth outing for Greek Symphonic Metallers Meden Agan, who continue to make further in-roads into the imposing territory occupied by bands like Epica, Xandria and Nightwish (by pure coincidence, and in-keeping with Symphonic Metal history, it has a bit in common with.. Read More
LÜÜP - Canticles of the Holy Scythe (I, Voidhanger)

LÜÜP – Canticles of the Holy Scythe (I, Voidhanger)

While LÜÜP may be the brainchild of Greek composer and multi-instrumentalist Stelios Romaliadis, it’s far from a solo project and while I usually comment on individuals on each song, a quick look at the discography on their official site where you can list the musicians on.. Read More
Mother Of Millions - Sigma (ViciSolum)

Mother Of Millions – Sigma (ViciSolum)

Returning once again to cast their dark and captivating musical mastery over us all, Athenian five piece Mother Of Millions are set to unleash ‘Sigma’, their second full length release and follow up to the incredible debut offering ‘Human’ (2014). Conceptual again like its predecessor,.. Read More
Necrovorous – Plains Of Decay (Dark Descent Records)

Necrovorous – Plains Of Decay (Dark Descent Records)

The drummer’s called …. “Shit Eater”. I could leave it right there really. But no, I’ll soldier on with this review of the second (NOT sophomore Stu) full-length of these Athens based death metallers. According to the promo blurb, Mr Eater started the band in.. Read More
SepticFlesh - Codex Omega (Season of Mist)

SepticFlesh – Codex Omega (Season of Mist)

The problem with reviewing a new SepticFlesh album is expectation and having to pick it apart. As in, I have to be objective and meticulous and point out what could’ve been done to make things better. For example, is the 47 minutes running time really.. Read More
The Black Capes – All These Monsters (Dark Tunes)

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
Acherontas – Amarta (Formulas of Reptilian Unification Part II) (World Terror Committee)

Acherontas – Amarta (Formulas of Reptilian Unification Part II) (World Terror Committee)

Penetrating the increasingly esoteric world of Acherontas V Priest and his various collaborators is becoming a bit of an adventure – albeit one that is bleak and unforgiving. The outfit undoubtedly made its initial impact with some impressive occult-driven black metal with unashamedly good, hook-filled.. Read More
Mahakala - The Second Fall (Supreme Music Creations)

Mahakala – The Second Fall (Supreme Music Creations)

Another review, and another band I’ve yet to encounter; sometimes that can be a good thing, other times a bad one. I’m glad to say on this occasion my first listen to Mahakala falls firmly into the former, with ‘The Supreme Fall’ managing to straddle.. Read More
Resurgency -  No Worlds…Nor Gods Beyond ( FDA Records)

Resurgency – No Worlds…Nor Gods Beyond ( FDA Records)

No Worlds… is the second album by underground Greek death metal stalwarts Resurgency, and a mighty album it is indeed. Although Athens is a pretty sunny place most of the time, from listening to this album I would suspect that wherever Resurgency are based in.. Read More
Until Rain - Inure (Sensory Records)

Until Rain – Inure (Sensory Records)

This is Greek band Until Rain’s third album release as follow-up to “The Reign of Dreams” (2009) and “Anthem to Creation” (2013). My only encounter with the band was at ProgPower Europe in 2015. What I remember about that was an overwhelming display of soft.. Read More
Acrimonious – Eleven Dragons (WTC Productions)

Acrimonious – Eleven Dragons (WTC Productions)

My poor attention span groaned inwardly when I saw the duration of this third album by Greek black metallers Acrimonious, an act unfamiliar to me but not any longer as this opus is one of staggering brilliance. Confidence pours from this album as “Incineration Initiator”.. Read More
