Glasya – Heaven’s Demise (Pride & Joy Music)

Time to don your budgie-smugglers and wade out into the deep waters of Operatic Symphonic Metal with the debut offering from Portuguese band Glasya. This particular sea can get pretty choppy and rather crowded with big fish around, so although… 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 →

Atrocity – Okkult II (Massacre)

Being a classic or storied band can have its drawbacks, these usually rear their ugly heads in the later stages of a bands career where people hark back to the days of old and what the band were. This level… Continue Reading →

Leaves’ Eyes – Sign Of The Dragonhead (AFM Records)

So it finally arrives, the new album by symphonic metallers Leaves’ Eyes, prior to which we got an indication as to the future direction the band would take with the release of the “Fires In The North” EP released in… Continue Reading →

Angel Nation – Aeon (Inner Wounds Recordings)

A while ago I found myself enjoying an album called ‘Tears of Lust’ by a little known band called EnkeliNation, and this opinion was later reinforced by strong showings at the Bloodstock and Dames of Darkness festivals. Fast forward to… Continue Reading →

Deep Sun – Race Against Time (S/R)

It’s always nice to stumble across a new band, even more so when it’s a band of the quality of Deep Sun who somehow are unsigned and really do deserve a proper record deal. What we have here is high-end… Continue Reading →

Leaves’ Eyes – Fires In The North (AFM)

I have to admit to very mixed feelings about reviewing this EP with new vocalist Elina Siirala in the ranks after the shock exit of Liv Kristine late last year. Rumours, whispers and various stories have done the rounds on… Continue Reading →

Leaves’ Eyes – King Of Kings (AFM)

Anyone who follows Ave Noctum’s reviews and those who know me know that I am a long life stalker, I mean fan, of all the work Liv Kristine has been involved in for over 20 years. I stand by the… Continue Reading →

Heidevolk – Velua (Napalm)

There’s no messing around with twiddly, whimsical intros for Dutch Pagan Metallers Heidevolk. Nope, opening track ‘Winter Woede’ piles straight in there, brimming with their own special brand of Tyr-tinged, Ensiferum-edged Viking Metal that they have been crafting and honing… Continue Reading →

Liv Kristine – Vervain (Napalm)

The work ethic of Liv Kristine seems boundless as this fifth solo album hits the Autumn shelves in the light of her collaboration with Anneke Van Giersbergen and Kari Rueslåtten, the latter of very early 3rd And The Mortal fame,… Continue Reading →

Leaves Eyes, Pythia & Atrocity – London Garage 19/1/14

It’s generally quiet this time of year and after the mayhem of gigs in December it gives the much needed chance to refresh our batteries a bit. I couldn’t think of a much better band to see to start off… Continue Reading →

Legend – Spirit (Ravenheart)

If you’re a prog rock fan and you’ve never heard about Legend, it might be somewhat understandable, since their name isn’t referred that often over rock’s most reputed and trustworthy news sources. However, if you consider yourself to be an avid… Continue Reading →
