Kadavar – For The Dead Travel Fast (Nuclear Blast)

Long term followers of Ave Noctum who have had the dubious pleasure of reading my assorted inane ramblings will know that for a long time I’ve been a follower and advocate of a number of the many retro style bands… Continue Reading →

The Black Wizards – Reflections (Kozmic Artifactz / Raging Planet)

Damn this modern life for making me have to have a job to pay my bills! Why can’t I be like that Swedish chap who made the news a couple of years ago when he got state benefits to go… Continue Reading →

The Golden Grass – Absolutely (Listenable Records)

Greetings fellow retronauts, it’s time to don your flares, drape your finest love beads around your necks, and set sail on the good ship ‘Absolutely’ care of Professor Plum Brandy, The Golden Goose, and The Fireball, a rock power trio… Continue Reading →

Mirror Queen – Verdigris (TeePee)

Verdigris is more commonly recognised as some kind of strange blue-green-science-thingy involving acid, copper and weather effects… Or something which Wikipedia/A Chemistry textbook/Websters Dictionary or any other useful reference material can explain much more eloquently and effectively than I can…… Continue Reading →

Kadavar – Rough Times (Nuclear Blast)

Let me start this review with a deep and sincere apology to the editor of the site you are reading, Ave Noctum. I’m sorry this review has taken so long to arrive, but damn, I’ve just been so simply busy… Continue Reading →

Obelyskkh – The Providence (Exile On Mainstream)

German underground doom metal is a good thing. There’s an irresistible passion and zeal to be found with their primal, entrancing riffs that in a way, give it a unique identity. These qualities can also be found here in Obelyskkh…. Continue Reading →

Retrosexual. How is that not a name yet? It could describe someone of any gender or sexuality who gets their rocks off by living with both bellbottom enclosed ankles in the period between 1968 and 1973. My sweet riff lord… Continue Reading →

Monolith – Mountain (Final Gate Records)

The whole retro thing is quite big at the moment. Bands like Kadavar, Graveyard and Horisont are names we see quite often because they do it well. Obviously, the key to success is not pure imitation, but taking those late… Continue Reading →

Brimstone Coven – Black Magic (Metal Blade)

Brimstone Coven was not a band I was familiar with before receiving ‘Black Magic’, their second album and the first whilst signed to Metal Blade, but their sound was one that was instantly recognisable. From the first chord of the… Continue Reading →

Satan’s Satyrs – Don’t Deliver Us (Bad Omen Records)

Over a year has passed since Satan’s Satyrs released ‘Die Screaming’ (see Ave Noctum reviews passim) onto the world care of Bad Omen Records, and 2015 sees this happy relationship between band and label bare fresh fruit in the form… Continue Reading →

Godsleep – Thousand Sons of Sleep (Rock Freak Records)

It would seem that for me, Greek bands I like are somewhat akin to buses; you wait ages for one, and then three come along together. Okay, Craang, Planet of Zeus, and subject of this review, Godsleep, may have been… Continue Reading →

Kadavar – Berlin (Nuclear Blast)

It is 2015 and people are panicking over Windows 10 and the Kardashians and what Facebook cause they should get behind this week. Right, feel that anxiety rising in your chest? Feel the need to get away from it all?… Continue Reading →
