Trollheims Grot – Aligned With The True Death (W.T.C. Productions)

15 years between albums is a long time in anyone’s book but Trollheims Grot were not a band I had forgotten in all those years as I fondly remembered covering their excellent last release Bloodsoaked And Ill Fated way back… Continue Reading →

Firstly let’s get this out the way regarding the album title which is actually “∞” 8 is not only a number but a symbol, symbol of infinity,.” Putting it as illustrated properly is gonna screw up with the WordPress URL,… Continue Reading →

Norse – The Divine Light of a New Sun (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Black metal is much like a living organism, staying true to its roots while constantly evolving and developing, and many modern day black metal outfits have little in common with the forefathers of this genre. However, these days it is… Continue Reading →

T.O.M.B. – Fury Nocturnus (Peaceville)

‘Industrial Black Noise’ it says here and in that, I think it’s fair to say that ‘Fury Nocturnus’ delivers. Across fourteen tracks, this US-based trio clearly do their utmost to convey an ambience of impenetrable churning malice – of demented… Continue Reading →

Terra Tenebrosa – The Reverses (Debemur Morti)

Terra Tenebrosa first came to my attention when a friend recommended their album “The Tunnels” (2013), which I bought. What I heard then from this Swedish band was dark and grim and representative of hopelessness. A word I read recently… Continue Reading →

Interview – DiabolicuM

When it comes to Sweden’s industrial/black metal pioneers Diabolicum, and especially their rampaging latest disc ‘Ia Pazuzu’, utterly negative adjectives are all that can describe them. Given the opportunity to pick the brains of founding member Sasrof, it came as… Continue Reading →

Aborym – Dirty (Agonia)

Aborym have been consistently delivering the goods for a surprisingly long time now, haven’t they? It only really struck me when coming to write this review, that it was 2001 when I first had my introduction to the band with… Continue Reading →

Plutonium – Devilmentertainment Non Stop (SR)

Listening to v.e.g.a. yesterday got me thinking that black metal and industrial go together so fantastically well it’s a shame more bands don’t do it. Plutonium, a solo act fromSweden, is another fine example of this integration of styles and… Continue Reading →
