Epica - Epica Vs Attack on Titan (Nuclear Blast)

Epica – Epica Vs Attack on Titan (Nuclear Blast)

That old saying, a tale of two halves, couldn’t be more appropriate than with Epica’s latest offering ‘Epica Vs Attack On Titan’. The foundations to the album are constructed of ultimately 4 songs, but duplicated between the 1st half being a full out symphonic attack,.. Read More
Hillsphere – Florescence (Layered Reality Productions)

Hillsphere – Florescence (Layered Reality Productions)

The fact that this album came to me from Tom de Wit’s label screamed Progressive. Actually, no screams, just dreams. I was barely a minute into it, and I found myself floating away. “Florescence” is about growth. This concept album from the Netherlands takes us.. Read More
Urfaust – The Constellatory Practice (Van)

Urfaust – The Constellatory Practice (Van)

You could probably argue that almost all genres of Metal are endlessly dynamic and come with a massive array of sub-genre tags, which is probably what makes the genre as a whole so enticing. However if we are looking for the most diverse of sub-genres.. Read More

Gnaw Their Tongues – Genocidal Majesty (ConSouling Sounds)

Having averaged an album a year in his 14 year career span under the guise Gnaw Their Tongues, alongside involvement in a massive six other musical projects, Mories is easily the busiest man in European alternative music. Never being too busy to be innovative, ‘Genocidal.. Read More
Death Alley – Superbia (Century Media)

Death Alley – Superbia (Century Media)

Retro rock is being churned out like seaside rock in a sweetie factory in mainland Europe these days. It just depends whether Sabbath or Jefferson Airplane is written through the middle.  It either floats your tie dyed boat or it doesn’t. If it does then the.. Read More
Pestilence – Hadeon (Hammerheart)

Pestilence – Hadeon (Hammerheart)

What makes a legendary band? Is it enough to be ahead of your time? Or is it simply about writing great music? So many questions to answer all with an array of deep answers. To me a legendary band is one of some sort of.. Read More
Interview - Deinonychus

Interview – Deinonychus

  Landing at the tail end of last year ‘Ode to Acts of Murder, Dystopia and Suicide’ was an album that wrapped up 2017 with a more than healthy blast of negativity. One could be forgiven for having all but forgotten about Dutch band Deinonychus.. Read More
Funeral Winds - Sinister Creed (Avantgarde)

Funeral Winds – Sinister Creed (Avantgarde)

…I get a feeling that 2018 is going to be a good year for fast, furious and brutal black metal… Now, Funeral Winds may take a bit of time getting a full-length record out, but when they do, they don’t fuck about. The follow-up album.. Read More
Deinonychus – Ode To Acts Of Murder, Dystopia And Suicide (My Kingdom Music)

Deinonychus – Ode To Acts Of Murder, Dystopia And Suicide (My Kingdom Music)

What a delightful album title, fair warms the cockles and caresses the soul. Well at least someone looking to buy a loved one a present this festering season can’t be excused for making a mistake and it could be given to send a message. Mind.. Read More
Hooded Priest – The Hour Be None (I Hate Records)

Hooded Priest – The Hour Be None (I Hate Records)

  After my first listen to Hooded Priest’s latest offering, ‘The Hour Be None’, I would have happily sworn that I must be in possession of their previous offerings, maybe at least a couple of albums or EPs; such was the immediate familiarity of the.. Read More

Ball Noir - Last Serenades (S/R)

Ball Noir – Last Serenades (S/R)

A little bit of something different for you. Ball Noir are a Dutch dark folk-metal band, though it’s fair to say that they’re rather more influenced by the golden periods of bands such as our very own My Dying Bride and Anathema than, say, Skyclad... Read More
