Lik – Carnage (Metal Blade)

Lik – Carnage (Metal Blade)

It’s good to know that Sweden is maintaining its cultural heritage of rip-roaring death-thrash metal with deep riffs and extravagant melodies. So Lik has come on the scene to blow our minds and rip flesh. “Carnage” is their second album. Starting with “To Kill” and.. Read More
Tantal – Ruin (Mazzar Records)

Tantal – Ruin (Mazzar Records)

So this new Tantal album came my way and as I always like to do before I embark on a review, I read what the label/promotions agency have to say about the band. What instantly intrigued (and amused) me about it is that the comparisons.. Read More
Voices – Frightened (Candlelight)

Voices – Frightened (Candlelight)

Well I have listened to this album every day for the last 10 or so. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining and it hasn’t been a chore in the slightest. It’s just that a work of this breadth and depth is not going to.. Read More
Deadly Carnage – Through The Void, Above The Suns ( A Sad Sadness Song)

Deadly Carnage – Through The Void, Above The Suns ( A Sad Sadness Song)

I have reviewed this Italian bands last two full lengths the last one of which was released in 2014. The band has been relatively quiet since then with only a two track EP called “Chasm” showing up in 2016 that continued the bands post black.. Read More
Ayreon Universe - Best Of Ayreon – Live (Mascot)

Ayreon Universe – Best Of Ayreon – Live (Mascot)

If someone as musically innovative and fan-friendly as Arjen Lucassen is approached to release a ‘Best Of’, it’s pretty fair bet he will find a way to do it differently, in a way that treats his fans to something new. Two years in the planning,.. Read More
Dreamarcher -  Harding (Indie)

Dreamarcher – Harding (Indie)

I have no idea what is going on here. Not really. Oslo band Dreamarcher are a completely new name to me. This short EP is apparently a concept EP about the town Harding and its history, particularly around industrialisation. Most significantly though there is a.. Read More
Deathwhite – For A Black Tomorrow (Season Of Mist)

Deathwhite – For A Black Tomorrow (Season Of Mist)

Last year, French record label Season Of Mist managed to impress me with some fantastic releases, including the outstanding “Radiation” album by Impure Wilhelmina, which ended up on top of my “best of 2017” list. This year, it’s starting well again with Erdve and now.. Read More
The Howling Void – The Darkness At The Edge Of Dawn (Avantgarde Music)

The Howling Void – The Darkness At The Edge Of Dawn (Avantgarde Music)

Ryan Wilson is the man behind USA act The Howling Void and I have delved into a couple of their 6 albums in the past. He’s a busy chap, also involved in other bands such as Intestinal Disgorge (who I am guessing are brutal death),.. Read More
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
