The Ossuary – Southern Funeral (Supreme Chaos)

Forged in 2014, this impressive Italian Heavy/Doom Metal band unleash their second album through Supreme Chaos and continue to build on their impressive debut. To elaborate on that Heavy/Doom Metal tag, we’re talking Spiritual Beggars/Mushroom River Band/The Quill type territory,… 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 →

Oltretomba – The Horror – Figure Del Terrore (Moribund)

Are the theatrics of Black Metal dead? It’s a question I often ask myself. The early days had the raw untamed grimness of real life horrors, arson, murder and so forth. Then came the more mainstream times with big pompous… Continue Reading →

Necromutilator – Black Blood Aggression (Terror From Hell)

Necromutilator hail from Italy and, well, what do you think a band called Necromutilator sound like? Yeah. Like that. Which is probably why Black Blood Aggression crawled from the review lists into my lap looking for a warm place to… Continue Reading →

Falaise – A Place I Don’t Belong To (A Sad Sadness Song)

Where’s the righteous rage paired with the credible threat of action gone from music? You know, the thing that hardcore had a claim on. Black metal, too, but in a different way. From today’s perspective, anyway, being anti-Christian seems pretty… Continue Reading →

The Haunting Green – Natural Extinctions (Hypnotic Dirge)

How about some Eco-doom from Italian duo The Haunting Green? ‘Natural Extinctions’ is the first full-length recording from Cristiano Perin (guitar, vocals, and electronics) and drummer/vocalist Chantal Fresco, and is a potent brew of experimental dirge, and persuasive power. A… Continue Reading →

Il Vuoto – Vastness (Hypnotic Dirge)

It is time to enter “the void” courtesy of Italian composer Matteo Gruppi el maestro behind everything we hear on Il Vuoto’s second full length album following on from ‘Weakness’ in 2015. We are informed that ‘Vastness is a painting… Continue Reading →

The Green Inferno – Antonio Climati (88 Films)

There’s nothing more confusing than taking a trip to the celluloid jungle; right let’s try to explain this. The Green Inferno has nothing to do with the more recent homage by Eli Roth (2013), in fact he nabbed the name… Continue Reading →

Enisum – Moth’s Illusion (Avantgarde Music)

Best to say it straight, right? OK then: This is the best album I’ve had to review in quite some time. Enisum might have their name backwards, but apart from that, it appears, they are doing everything right. Enisum are… Continue Reading →

Rhapsody Of Fire – The Eighth Mountain (AFM)

So the Italian cinematic power metal maestros are back with their 11th album, some three years after the awesome “Into The Legend” release. I am discounting the “Legendary Years” album as a full length because it is a re-recorded compilation,… Continue Reading →

Electrocution – Psychonolatry (Goregorecords)

Genre flooding is nothing new, since the very dawn of recorded music and likely even prior there has been surges and waves of certain styles pummelling the eardrums of listeners like an audible tsunami. Yet the prevalence of this is… Continue Reading →

Ancient Bards – Origine (The Black Crystal Sword Saga Part 2) (Limb Music)

Part 2? What the hell happened to part 1? I was sure Ancient Bards’ previous album was called “A New Dawn Ending” back in 2014. Further investigation shows that this is actually a continuation of the story from their debut… Continue Reading →
