Ecnephias – Seven: The Pact Of Debauchery (My Kingdom Music)

The aptly titled album is the seventh by the Italian trio, and the third I’ve been privileged to review. As is their want their lyrics are both in English and Italian, with the latter songs seeming far broodier and melancholy… Continue Reading →

MASTER BOOT RECORD – Floppy Disk Overdrive (Metal Blade)

Imagine your computer used an algorithm to compose Bach-like music but its only real-world reference was the music it has heard you play, and you will understand the essence of Master Boot Record. Baroque refrains mix with chiptunes and heavy… Continue Reading →

Little Albert – Swamp King (Aural Music)

I was a lucky young man growing up. My local The Torrington in North Finchley , London put two gigs on a week that featured the great and the good of the rock and blues world past and present (late… Continue Reading →

Regen Graves – Herbslicht (Pariah Child)

A moody image that is somewhat focused on times past greats us from the album cover here. The cars look like they are from the 70’s, the sky is devoid of colour and the cobbled streets from an unspecified European… Continue Reading →

The Glad Husbands – Safe Places (Atypeek Music)

With a name like The Glad Husbands you could be forgiven for thinking that they can be found playing second fiddle to Mumford and Sons at a cheese rolling festival in Gloucester; however you’d be way off the mark.  As… Continue Reading →

Giöbia – Plasmatic Idol (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Whilst very much the underground label so beloved of the scribes of Ave Noctum, and by extension your good selves reading this, Heavy Psych Sounds is definitely building up a solid and interesting catalogue of artists, to the extent that… Continue Reading →

Blasphemer – The Sixth Hour (Candlelight)

Do you ever get bands that just remind you of a time? I mean I guess that’s nostalgia, but I’m talking bands that may not have had a great impact on you but were just there, lurking in the shadows…. Continue Reading →

Caronte – Wolves of Thelema (Van Records)

Italian doom singing about deeply occult themes? Yeah, go on then, I’m in. I haven’t listened to any Italian bands in a really, really long time – not for any reason other than I haven’t really had the opportunity to…. Continue Reading →

Hideous Divinity – Simulacrum (Century Media)

Do you ever hate on bands for the lamest reasons? Well not so much hate but perhaps not care for. In a very ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ sense we all have preconceived judgements when it comes to… Continue Reading →

Infection Code – In.R.I – Argonauta Records

One of the absolutely beautiful things about writing for this site, is the amount of curveballs you get thrown your way when putting your hand up for something you think you’ve got a pretty good understanding of. You often think… Continue Reading →

Dolore – Fantasmi (HPGD Productions)

As I am sure the record label is well aware, horror, pain, gore and death are all key ingredients of any good horror film. So too are decent direction, acting, story and scares but show me as film with everything… Continue Reading →
