Korea – Abiogenesis (Vicisolum Records)

Korea – Abiogenesis (Vicisolum Records)

Now, be honest. Have you spent the last seven years in anticipation of Korea’s new album? I confess that I hadn’t, contrary to the claim that seven years of waiting is over. In fact I didn’t know about Korea, who not so self-evidently are from.. Read More
Impure Wilhelmina – Radiation (Season of Mist)

Impure Wilhelmina – Radiation (Season of Mist)

Well, these guys have come out of nowhere (after five previous albums, I must add) with a bit of a gem here for anyone who’s into the whole post-hardcore melancholy vibe and vocals powerful enough to cause a higher-level stratospheric event. Impure Wilhelmina – no,.. Read More
Disbelief - The Symbol of Death (Listenable Records)

Disbelief – The Symbol of Death (Listenable Records)

Is it really seven years since Disbelief released “Heal!”? Time flies, I guess, and I remember enjoying it a fair bit when it was released, with their mid-tempo meat-and-potatoes take on death metal. One of Germany’s most reliable death metal bands, having been active since.. Read More
Shores Of Null – Black Drapes For Tomorrow (Candlelight Records)

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
Lashblood - Unbeing (Aesthetic Death)

Lashblood – Unbeing (Aesthetic Death)

I’m always wary whenever I see term “avant-garde” applied to a band. This is the case with Russia’s Lashblood. It doesn’t take long on this follow-up to the band’s debut album “Philosophy of Self-Flagellation: Being and Nothing” (2012). A withering riff with a vocalist whose.. Read More
Last Leaf Down - Bright Wide Colder (Lifeforce)

Last Leaf Down – Bright Wide Colder (Lifeforce)

This sophomore album by Swiss quartet formed 14 years ago was really awesome last week when the weather was grey and gloomy, and the music matched it completely. With the sky blue and bright, the music somehow feels crisp and clean instead. Weird how sunshine.. Read More
Trees of Eternity - Hour of the Nightingale (Svart)

Trees of Eternity – Hour of the Nightingale (Svart)

What really sucks about this album is that for South African born vocalist Aleah Starbridge, its release is posthumous. She and Swallow The Sun guitarist Juha Raivio created Trees of Eternity as an acoustic collaboration, but it pretty soon morphed into more with the inclusion.. Read More
Waldgeflüster - Ruinen (Nordvis)

Waldgeflüster – Ruinen (Nordvis)

If you’re looking for something lightweight and airy, this is not the place to look. From a black metal base, these forest whisperers from Germany have moved into shady and atmospheric territory here. “Weltenwanderer” (World Wanderer) is typical – dark, harsh, ferocious, leaden heavy, doomy..

Arx Atrata – Spiritus In Terra (S/R)

Arx Atrata – Spiritus In Terra (S/R)

Debut album Oblivion seemingly came from out of nowhere at the beginning of 2014 and pretty much blew me away. Looking back at the review I had little information to go on at the time as the band were not revealing much at all wanting.. Read More
