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 →

Shrike – Zeitgeist Geistzeit (S/R)

Work cut out with this one. There’s very little information about German band Shrike to be found in English and this disc didn’t even come with a track listing. Still we like a challenge and reviewing things with all the… Continue Reading →

Empty – Vacio (Osmose)

I remembered Spanish band Empty not by their name which is hardly remarkable but by the cover art to their third album The House Of Funerary Hymns which certainly caught my attention on release in 2009 with its spooky imagery… Continue Reading →

Vanhelga – Fredagsmys (Osmose)

Well firstly a belated congratulations to Vanhelga for finally getting a bit of a step up and signing to Osmose. It’s great that the Swedish band can spread their misery further afield and hopefully they may even get some better… Continue Reading →

Totalselfhatred – Solitude (Osmose)

DSBM I never really know how to feel about it, even now as a pretty long term fan of the genre I don’t quite know what to make of it all. It comes in so many forms, the extremity of… Continue Reading →

Ofdrykkja – Irrfärd (Avantgarde)

Ofdrykkja has come a long way since its first release, the beguiling (if that’s the right word for a self-confessed depressive suicidal black metal band) and harrowing A Life Worth Losing in 2014. Back then things were strictly lo-fi but… Continue Reading →

Vanhelga – Ode And Elegy (S/R)

Before you read the review we are proud to be one of the websites asked to host the brand new accompanying video for “Utan Mening.”  The song used in the video, is the opening track from “Ode & Elegy, the band’s… Continue Reading →

ColdWorld – Autumn (Cold Dimensions)

Such are the constant requests for reviewing stuff digitally, I almost missed this one. It was only when people including the band Darkspace were talking about it on social media that I went and had a look and found the… Continue Reading →

Lifelover, Hypothermia, Eye Of Solitude & Kall – London Nambucca 26/9/15

This was always destined to be a bit of a squeeze but it’s a gig that we never even expected to happen especially after the untimely death of Lifelover’s B (Jonas Bergqvist) in 2011. Taking us by surprise though the… Continue Reading →

Hypothermia – Svartkonst (Agonia)

Comprising members of Lifelover and Kall Sweden’s Hypothermia has an extensive discography since their inception in 2001, which has seen the band always record everything they do live. Initially the band was more of a purist black metal style but… Continue Reading →

Vardan – Despicable Broken Hope (Moribund)

The despicable amount of releases continue from one man Sicilian workhorse Vardan and this is his third so far this year. Personally I thought he was going to aim for one a month but with the release date of this… Continue Reading →

Eskapi – Välkommen till (O)verkligheten (Art Of Propaganda)

The fertile but not right by any means mind of J Gabrielson (Lifelover, Vanhelga) strikes again with a new musical project. Here he provides vocals and lyrics whilst partner in insanity C.J. does everything instrumentally. The debut E.P. does have… Continue Reading →
