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

Cirith Gorgor – Bi den Dode Hant (Hammerheart Records)

My first encounter with Cirith Gorgor was about 15 years ago when they blackened my life thanks to a track on a sampler. Although I never did anything more about it at the time, I didn’t forget the name of this band, whose sample made.. Read More

Occultum – Towards Eternal Chaos (Old Temple)

Seven apocalyptic black metal hymns is what Poland’s Occultum promise on their debut album. Moreover the end of “Abomination” is paraded as the exact vision of the band. “Abomination” is the sixth of seven hell-inspired, hate-filled tracks. From the advancing creepiness of “End of the.. Read More

Wederganger – Halfvergaan Ontwaakt (Ván)

A gruesome world is presented to us, based on spirits, undeath and horror. This trio from the Netherlands pay homage to this world where dead people return by infusing the pitch black atmosphere with strange sounds, deep mantra-like chants and general dementia. I can’t make.. Read More

Ondfødt – Hexkonst (Immortal Frost)

Ondfødt, not to be mixed up with Ondskapt or other similar-sounding bands, are from Finland. Listening to “Hexkonst”, they have spent their time listening to and absorbing black metal from Norway and Sweden. The heartbeat and majestic gloom which opens the album is just a.. Read More

Originally a solo project for Thomas Bergli of Khold and Old Man’s Child, he has long since abandoned the lone approach. Now comprising a full line up of some very familiar and talented faces, Sarke are well established purveyors of frostbitten, doom-laden black thrash. With.. Read More

Rotten Liver – Purification by Debauchery (Mortis Humanae Productions)

Rotten Liver – Purification by Debauchery (Mortis Humanae Productions)

Through dark and tortured black metal, this four track ep deals with gnosis, sin and chaos. Well, this is France. What a lovely picture the duo that is Rotten Liver paint. Actually it’s all rather jolly as the first track “Infamous Nil” bounces along, Khold-style,.. Read More
Hegerøth – Spectral Fear (SR)

Hegerøth – Spectral Fear (SR)

This is a 20 minute-long demo, so there’s not a lot of time to spread atmospheric nastiness. Hegerøth set about their evil business without ado. Whistling sounds accompany furious dark beats and of course rasping vocals. Not sounding so original? Well, this kind of metal.. Read More
