Monolithe – Okta Khora (LADLO Productions)

Decem Maleficivm – The End of Satan (LADLO Productions)

From such a faraway place as Chile come Decem Maleficivm proclaiming The End of Satan. And there I was thinking that that guy would be around forever, because of cosmic balance and all that. Decem Maleficivm themselves, in any case,… Continue Reading →

Pénitence Onirique – Vestige (LADLO Productions)

Looking up this French atmospheric black metal act online there are striking shots of them playing live wearing strange pagan like gold masks that are certainly interesting aesthetically. Far removed from the one-man solitary figure found in much of the… Continue Reading →

Asphodèle – Jours Pâles (Ladlo Productions)

The flowers of Asphodèle may have only just bloomed but one look at the cast list of this brand-new French band was all I needed to grab the album and put it on my review pile. For a start we… Continue Reading →

Numen – Iluntasuna Besarkatu Nuen Betiko (LADLO Productions)

Time Lurker / Cepheide – Split (Ladlo Productions)

Two French bands uniting under the split release format here. Both have been explored by this writer in the past so I kind of knew what to expect. Fast tremolo picking, raging swarms of blackness and a harrowing, hollering vocal… Continue Reading →

Triste Terre – Grand Oeuvre (Ladlo Productions)

“Baroque classical avant-garde black metal”. “Hieratic songs built like cathedrals of noble darkness”. These words were my initial introduction to this work and band. Six monstrous pieces comprise “Grand Oeuvre”. There’s no wasting time. We are immediately launched into vast… Continue Reading →

Heaume Mortal – Solstices (LADLO Productions)

The trio behind French act Heaume Mortal come from a background embedded in sludge through work with bands such as Cowards, Eibon and Colossus Of Destiny who multi-instrumentalist Guillaume Morlat has all been involved in. The last album by Eibon… Continue Reading →

Blurr Thrower – Les Avatars du Vide (Ladlo Productions)

Yep I took one look at the band name and thought Britpop meets death metal, well you would wouldn’t you? Blurr Thrower are however French and an entirely different entity from a genre crossover which will hopefully never rear its… Continue Reading →
