Inferno Festival Day Three – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 20/4/19

Having cleared the hangover with a big breakfast, I made my annual trip to the infamous Neseblod store. I have written about this in previous years’ reviews so won’t go into detail except to say that Neseblod has a huge place in… Continue Reading →

Deus Mortem – Kosmocide (Terratur Possessions)

A bit of Polish black metal never did anyone any harm. Deus Mortem from Wroclaw now bring us their second album from the chasms of chaos and destruction. As you’d expect, this album has an uncompromising and violent edge. Deus… Continue Reading →

Totalitarian – Bloodlands (Barren Void)

It is promised that we will be dragged through the streets of Warsaw, across the fields of Treblinka, into the marshes of Belarus, or into the death pits of Babi Yar. Our guides are Italian band Totalitarian. This EP is… Continue Reading →

Misanthropic Existence – Death Shall Be Served (Aesthetic Death)

I understand that this album is a re-release on the basis that the original had limited exposure, as is the way when bands on a limited budget can only do so much. Now released through the Aesthetic Death label and… Continue Reading →

Warfist / Excidium – Laws Of Perversion And Filth (Godz Ov War Productions)

I was lucky enough to get hold of the album “Metal To The Bone” by Polish leather & stud enthusiasts Warfist last year and it couldn’t have had a more appropriate title so when the opportunity arose to write about… Continue Reading →

Persecutory – Towards the Ultimate Extinction (Godz ov War)

The band name and album title give no doubt that this is a blackened death death work. The band in question is from Turkey and this is their first full album release following an EP “Perversion Feeds Our Force” in… Continue Reading →

CB Murdoc – Here Be Dragons (ViciSolum)

I’ve only been to Sweden once. It was at Easter time and the sun shone throughout. This album by CB Murdoc, which arose from the old black metal band Mörk Gryning, presents an opposite view. It is described as a… Continue Reading →

Doom Over London Part 1 – London Dome 25/3/16

Easter Weekend and held over 3 days, Doom Over London hits town at a busy time that sees a stack of gigs as well as other festivals such as Inferno in Oslo and North Of The Wall in Glasgow. This… Continue Reading →

Diavolos – You Lived Now Die (Hells Headbangers)

My eyes were immediately drawn to this title when it came up for review because of the band’s name. Evidently derived from the same linguistic root, Diavolos is a name staggeringly close to that of my favourite style of pizza:… Continue Reading →

Dark Managarm – 2005/2015 A Decade of Terroreign (Mortis Humanae Productions)

One no doubt unintended outcome of this work is that if you show photos of people in corpse-paint over a ten year period, there’s no ageing process. So before I started to listen to this French band’s historical collection, I… Continue Reading →

Shape of Despair – Monotony Fields (Season of Mist)

Funeral doom, from the outside at least, sometimes feels like it must be on the verge of dying out thanks to a conceptual gene pool that makes UKIP policy look broad minded. As a sub-genre within a sub-genre, its sheer… Continue Reading →

Incineration Festival – Camden London 9/5/15

This festival hardly started small but in the space of a year has grown substantially and moved up from The Garage to no less than four venues in the heart of Camden. With 30 bands playing over the course of… Continue Reading →
