Thecodontion – Supercontinent (I, Voidhanger)

I can’t tell you how much trouble I’ve had in writing this band’s name down. I keep defaulting to The Condition. By way of information, Thecodontion – I’m resorting to cutting and pasting now – come from Italy, and this… Continue Reading →

The Rite – Liturgy of the Black (Iron Bonehead)

This is a Danish/Italian group whom have members of the most excellent Krossburst (Ita) and Denial of God (Dnk) with those members also existing within Black Oath. The black/doom approach will bring striking similarities to the Celtic Frost mantle, with… Continue Reading →

Heruka – No Sun Dared Pass Our Windows (Rude Awakening Records)

I wouldn’t say that Italian outfit Heruka are the easiest band to get to grips with either musically or thematically. One thing is certain though, they have ramped up their output after a couple of finding feet releases in the… Continue Reading →

Cosmic Putrefaction – The Horizons Towards Which Splendour Withers (I, Voidhanger)

One-man bands are ever present in the Metal world, which is probably due to the genre being so diverse and yet still strangely niche. You might like Black Metal enough to want to start a band but your other Metal… Continue Reading →

Noctu – Gelidae Mortis Imago (Transcending Obscurity Records)

If drone and the sounds of the wind, a dripping tap and a sombre piano are what floats your boat, you’re quids in with the opener of this second album from funereal doomster Noctu from Italy. But this accounts for… Continue Reading →

Forgotten Tomb – Nihilistic Estrangement (Agonia)

Well it’s estranged times for all of us but thankfully this has not stopped Italian outfit Forgotten Tomb from knocking up their tenth album, even if it does mean a planned tour with Vanhelga and Totalselfhatred (which I would have… Continue Reading →

Blaze Of Sorrow – Absentia (Eisenwald)

This is the sixth album by 13 year old black metal band Blaze Of Sorrow, and if you’ve never heard of them, it might have a little to do with the fact that they sing Italian lyrics which may not… Continue Reading →

Xpus – In Umbra Mortis Sedent (Transcending Obscurity)

I’ve been busy ticking off some much-needed classics from my record collection, Priest, Alice Cooper, AC/DC, etc. Not to mention my current lust for shameful Prog, in the vein of Marillion namely and perhaps less embarrassingly Pink Floyd. Aside from… Continue Reading →

Void Of Sleep – Metaphora (Aural Music)

Void Of Sleep are a five piece band who hail from Ravenna, Italy, and much like their peers, the excellent Psychedelic Witchcraft, they play a rather mind-bending variant of doom. Unlike their peers however, Void Of Sleep focus more on… Continue Reading →

Witches Of Doom – Funeral Radio (My Kingdom Music)

Italian Metal band Witches Of Doom certainly have a difficult sound to pin down. The name suggests maybe an Electric Wizard style Doom, maybe a St. Vitus style, or at the very least an orange-amped fuzz-laden retro outfit, but Witches… Continue Reading →

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 →
