When you see the cover, clock the image of the band and hear the intro you just know you’re in for a hefty slab of mighty Viking Metal from…errr…Italy. OK, well Italy isn’t hugely known for it’s Viking Metal (I guess it should be Roman.. Read More

Antropofagus – Methods Of Resurrection Through Evisceration (Comatose Music)

The first thing that came to mind after hearing a couple bars of an Antropofagus track on their website before deciding to review this album was Deicide, and while I still hear subtle hints of that every now and then when listening to the entire.. Read More

Where The Sun Comes Down – Welcome (Minotauro)

It’s not often we get discs turn up with covers that appear to be drawn by children in felt tip pen and there’s something a little bit unsettling about it all. In fact this album by Where The Sun Comes Down takes a lot of.. Read More

Shores Of Null – Black Drapes For Tomorrow (Candlelight Records)

I bought this band’s debut at the Inferno Festival in 2016 along with a shirt as they were one of the best bands of the festival and I admit to being a bit nervy about this sophomore album as the first one was unique, a.. Read More

Holy Martyr – Darkness Shall Prevail (Dragonheart Records)

Another year arrives bring the arrival of another metal scene being hastily revived from the past like some tattered denim wearing corpse. With the possible exception of the 60s psychedelic doom of Jex Thoth and Blood Ceremony, I’ve yet to see any other such revival.. Read More

Lorn – With Claws Arrayed (I, Voidhanger)

It’s been more than three years since Lorn made its mark with Subconscious Metamorphosis – appropriately enough its first outing on that most fitting of labels for avant-garde black metal I, Voidhanger. The band had hinted during its previous full-length, and the odd split in.. Read More

The Clamps - Blend, Shake, Swallow (Heavy Psych Sounds)

The Clamps – Blend, Shake, Swallow (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Italian trio The Clamps play a slightly stoner influenced brand of blazing trashy punk ‘n’ metal garage rock ‘n’ roll. Cranking up with the opening instrumental ‘Barracuda’, an exercise in shouting without words “we really know what a riff is!”, they then barrel their way.. Read More

Psychedelic Witchcraft – Magick Rites and Spells (Soulseller)

Tuscan occult inspired doom/classic rock hybrid created with some divine backing Psychedelic Witchcraft are back with the follow up to their impressive 2016 release, ‘The Vision’. Not giving much away with the title, hinting heavily in the direction of the arcane arts, it’s time to.. Read More
Rome in Monochrome – Karma Anubis (Wintersleep Records)

Rome in Monochrome – Karma Anubis (Wintersleep Records)

Now I’m sorry but this is just incredibly frustrating – a band comes to the table with a lengthy biography, extensive details on the band members’ past activities and some bold pronouncements of blending post rock, shoegaze and doom. Sounds promising does it not? So.. Read More
