Vreid – Lifehunger (Season Of Mist)

Vreid – Lifehunger (Season Of Mist)

Tragedy naturally hits everyone at some point in their life, yet it is equally natural that a similar sort of tragedy should strike artists also. The icy grip of death has no limitations, taking from us legends, visionaries and pioneers often far too young. I.. Read More
Archemoron – Year of the Harvester (Southern Prayer)

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 recognition than it did, at.. Read More
The Spirit - Sounds From The Vortex (Nuclear Blast)

The Spirit – Sounds From The Vortex (Nuclear Blast)

Melodic black metal may be an oxymoron to some, but over the years the evolution of black metal has produced some stunning releases that remain on my play list to this day. However, for every outstanding release, there are endless mediocre releases that aren’t bad.. Read More
Immortal – Northern Chaos Gods (Nuclear Blast)

Immortal – Northern Chaos Gods (Nuclear Blast)

The UK is in the middle of a heatwave. The news is full of sweltering red faced folks and my social media feed is full of red shouldered metallers  at Graspop or Hellfest. SO of course now is the ripe time for original Blizzard Beasts.. Read More

Kingdom – Putrescent Remains Of The Dead Ground (Godz Ov War Productions)

Apart from the band’s debut this Polish act love their long album titles even though their albums are relatively short as this fourth clocks in the sub 30 minute mark and begins with an eerie almost sinister riff on “Walls Of Askalon” that has an.. Read More

Pact – Enigmata (Moribund)

This is the third full length album from the..er..enigmatic occult US trio Pact, and actually my third encounter with them too having been shredded by their ultra aggressive début The Dragon Lineage Of Satan, and pleased by the follow up groundwork on their 2014 album.. Read More
The Ugly – Thanatology (ViciSolum Productions)

The Ugly – Thanatology (ViciSolum Productions)

The Ugly. Now there’s a name for a black metal band. This is the third full length from this Swedish horde, my first meeting with them and I guess they pretty much lay out their plan of attack from about a minute into the title.. Read More
Spite – Antimoshiach (Invictus)

Spite – Antimoshiach (Invictus)

No mosh, no core, no trends but fun, yes there is a fair bit of fun here, whether intentional or not. Spite continues a run I have been having of late with one man acts and this one hails from Brooklyn NY and is helmed.. Read More
Dead Woman’s Ditch – Seo Mere Saetan (Third I Rex)

Dead Woman’s Ditch – Seo Mere Saetan (Third I Rex)

When I first saw the moniker of this band my heart sank. “Another example of violent misogyny in the world of extreme music “ Ironic as I was wearing a Lunatic Hooker tee at the time. I could not be more wrong and this 6.. Read More
The Spirit – Sounds From The Vortex (Eternal Echoes)

The Spirit – Sounds From The Vortex (Eternal Echoes)

If you’re used to judging a band by its name and album cover then you may already have decided to skip past The Spirit – but that, my friend, would have been a mistake. Because Sounds From the Vortex is actually some pretty solid black.. Read More
Wolvenguard – Elemental Reclamation (S/R)

Wolvenguard – Elemental Reclamation (S/R)

Here’s a tempting treat for anyone whose tastes linger at the blackened end of the melodic death metal spectrum – Amon Amarth, Kataklysm, Immortal. Yes, you say, but I’ve listened to all that Viking death metal stuff a thousand times, moved on, had a few.. Read More
