Nachtmystium – Resilient (Prophecy)

It’s been a long and fucked up ride for U.S. black metal experimentalists Nachtmystium… A band whose “Black Meddle” has won critical acclaim, but whose leader has courted controversy and divided opinion. But no matter on how you feel about… Continue Reading →

Autumn Tears – The Origin Of Sleep (Dark Symphonies)

Well this is a welcome return and a (mellow) blast from the past. It has been 11 years since we last heard from neo-classical artists Autumn Tears and one could have been excused for having completely forgotten about them. I… Continue Reading →

Wolvhammer – The Monuments of Ash and Bone (Blood Music)

So, my first time out listening to Wolvhammer, though a cursory mooch about on the internet tells me that they’re well established in the US, boasting members or ex-members of acts such as Abigail Williams, Skeletonwitch, Nachtmystium and Krieg. This… Continue Reading →

Poison Blood – S/T (Relapse Records)

Technology is a wonderful thing.  Connecting people around the globe in moments. Gone are the days of “Penbangers” in Metal Forces – waiting for those C90 tapes to arrive from the other side of the world – or up the… Continue Reading →

Medico Peste – Herzogian Darkness (W.T.C. Productions)

This form of pestilential darkness comes to us via Poland and a calibre of musicians who have been involved past and present, on and off stage with the likes of Old Woods Grave, Mgla, Clandestine Blaze and Mord A’Stigmata. Speaking… Continue Reading →

Caïna – Christ Clad In White Phosphorus (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

This UK based act helmed by Andy Curtis-Brignell have always been interesting and highly experimental. I remember the near neo-folk acoustic lushness of 2008 album ‘Temporary Antennae’ being a challenging listen with many ideas flowing through it. Fast forward to… Continue Reading →

Chaos Moon – Amissum (Hellthrasher)

Alex Poole is one busy chap. I’ve only recently reviewed his second Skaphe album and still not entirely recovered from it and now this turns up. He’s also busy with Esoterica, Krieg and Lithotome too so there is no shortage… Continue Reading →

Skáphe – Skáphe² (I Voidhanger)

Neill Jameson isn’t the only member of Krieg causing musical chaos in a host of other acts such as Royal Arch Blaspheme, Lithotome etc. His partner in crime Alex Poole is also busy with and relatively new project Skáphe as… Continue Reading →

Kommandant – The Architects Of Extermination (ATMF)

I have been following and enjoying the work of genocidal USBM group Kommandant since they first made Kontakt with us via their 2010 EP. Their second album ‘The Draconian Archetype’ followed on from that in 2012 and got the comment… Continue Reading →

Demoncy – Joined In Darkness (Forever Plagued)

A landmark album in the pantheons of USBM and by many regarded as one of the best albums of its type, Demoncy 1999 album Joined In Darkness is up for reappraisal now courtesy of Forever Plagued records. I pretty much… Continue Reading →

Caïna – Setter of Unseen Snares (Broken Limbs)

Caïna (pronounced keye-nah, not kay-nah) have been a staple within the underground since 2004; the band went on a hiatus in 2011, only to return in 2013, and it would seem a break has done them good. While always firmly… Continue Reading →

Krieg – Transient (Candlelight)

It’s coming up to two decades since USBM stalwarts Krieg started on a career which has seen some of the harshest black metal ever shat out the bowels of all that is unholy. Their 2002 release ‘Destruction Ritual’ was my… Continue Reading →
