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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Woe – Withdrawal (Candlelight Records)

This was my first experience of Woe, a USBM band who feature none other than former Krieg drummer Chris Grigg (and now also Shawn Eldridge of Funebrarum/Disma on drums, though it seems that he doesn’t feature on this, their third… Continue Reading →

Lithotome – ST (Fall Of Nature)

Me and my big mouth. On reviewing the recent 4 way USBM split New World Black Metal I accused the Krieg track of being a bit on the melodic side. If I had known that main-man Imperial was at the… Continue Reading →

Bitter Peace, Esoterica, Krieg & The Many – New World Black Metal (Plastik Music)

Ah the irony of having a 4 track split piece of vinyl before me digitally to review. Naturally if you have one of those old gramophone whatchamacallits lying around you can add this to your wax collection if you so… Continue Reading →

Black Metal – Beyond The Darkness (Black Dog Publishing)

Indeed it is “a story that’s been told countless times before.” The origins of black metal as a musical art form are always going to stir interest from those both within and outside the scene. One wonders if centuries down… Continue Reading →

Drug Honkey – Ghost In The Fire (Diabolical Conquest)

My first encounter with Chicago based band Drug Honkey was with their 2008 Death Dub album and I certainly liked what I heard finding it uncomfortable listening, quite filthy and experimental and also unique. Silence until an email turned up… Continue Reading →

Royal Arch Blaspheme – II (Hells Headbangers)

I got this album quite some time before the release date which can be a blessing in disguise. It’s good as it allows you to get to grips with the music a bit better but when it is as foul… Continue Reading →

Sylvan Realm – The Lodge Of Transcendence (Reverie Recordings)

USBM is no longer an entity that can be considered clear cut and orthodox. The foundations laid down by the likes of Judas Iscariot and Krieg and later adopted by everyone from Kult Of Azazel to Nachtmystium entered new territories… Continue Reading →

Abazagorath – ST (Novisible Scars)

Prior to reviewing this I took the time to reacquaint myself with this USBM hordes second full length album ‘Sacraments of the Final Atrocity.’ Whilst it has its good points and a couple of stand out hymns I found it… Continue Reading →

Kommandant – The Draconian Archetype (ATMF)

Chicagoans Kommandant first fired across my bows with their Kontakt EP back in 2010 via Planet Metal Records. At the time I declared that the disc gave me a cataclysmic short sharp shock and left me wanting more and finally… Continue Reading →
