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 road. A golden time then.. Read More

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 of Stigmata there’s a cover.. Read More
Caïna – Christ Clad In White Phosphorus (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

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 the present and the project..

Chaos Moon – Amissum (Hellthrasher)

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 of material from him and.. Read More

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 from me stating “At the.. Read More

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 missed all their albums first.. Read More
Caïna – Setter of Unseen Snares (Broken Limbs)

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 rooted in black metal, Caïna.. Read More
Krieg – Transient (Candlelight)

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 first real encounter with them.. Read More
Chaos Moon – Resurrection Extract (I Voidhanger)

Chaos Moon – Resurrection Extract (I Voidhanger)

Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Alex Poole is behind everything we hear as far as Chaos Moon are concerned. The project was around between 2004 and 2011 releasing various split’s EP’s a compilation and a couple of albums and then was put on ice. Poole was far.. Read More
Wolvhammer – Clawing into Black Sun (Profound Lore)

Wolvhammer – Clawing into Black Sun (Profound Lore)

2011’s ‘The Obsidian Plains’ is a helluva album to have to follow, however, considering the superstar line up of the Minneapolis/Chicago trio that is Wolvhammer – Jeff Wilson (ex-Krieg and Nachtmystium), Adam Clemans (ex-Iron Thrones and Veil of Maya) and Heath Rave (ex-Across Tundras) –..

Twilight - Beneath Trident’s Tomb (Century Media)

Twilight – Beneath Trident’s Tomb (Century Media)

Nobody would really have expected that this USBM meeting of minds would have made it to a third album and be signed by Century Media when they released their debut self-titled album back in 2005. It was an album that many had highly anticipated and.. Read More
