Ophidian Forest – votive (Code666)

Ok I mostly picked this up through intrigue. Intrigue caused by an ex-guitarist running their original Facebook page, not having talked to them for five years, directing people to the new page and mumbling about not having a clue what… Continue Reading →

Misanthropic Existence – Death Shall Be Served (Aesthetic Death)

I understand that this album is a re-release on the basis that the original had limited exposure, as is the way when bands on a limited budget can only do so much. Now released through the Aesthetic Death label and… Continue Reading →

Arkheth – 12 Winter Moons Comes The Witches Brew (Transcending Obscurity)

Arkheth is not the most productive band in the world. Having released its debut album in 2003 and a successor in 2010, they took another eight years to come up with “12 Winter Moons Comes The Witches Brew”. The new… Continue Reading →

Vargrav – Netherstorm (Werewolf Records)

Always a bit of a sucker for symphonic black metal, I was pleased to have the opportunity to sample this album from Finland’s Vargrav, the project of V-Khaoz, the former drummer of the atmospheric black metal band Kalmankantaja. This “act… Continue Reading →

Limbonic Art – Spectre Abysm (Candlelight)

Odd, but when I was given this to review I had to go away and check how many albums I have by Limbonic Art. Turns out I have the lot. Guess I must be a fan… Funny that. Anyway it’s… Continue Reading →

Midnight Odyssey – Silhouettes Of Stars (I Voidhanger)

I missed the 2015 Shards Of Silver Fate album by Midnight Odyssey, the cosmic/ambient black metal project that Australian auteur Dis Pater chooses to express himself through; a situation I am going to have to correct. You see just before… Continue Reading →

Interview – Devilish Impressions

  Poland has a rich history of blackened death metal bands. Devilish Impressions was formed in 2000, since when they have been enhancing the genre with atmospheric and symphonic elements. As a follow-up to the band’s third album “Simulacra” in… Continue Reading →

Angrenost – Planet Muscaria (Code666)

So to our Portuguese cosmic black metal band. This is actually their debut album despite a nineties formation date, an EP ‘Evil’ and then time interrupted by a long layoff due to internal self-destruction. All goodv inspiration it seems, proven… Continue Reading →

Bornholm – Inexorable Defiance (Noiseart Records)

Some years back I got hold of a copy of Bornholm’s second album “March For Glory And Revenge” and was impressed with the bands true black metal spirit pioneered by the unequalled Emperor but carrying the torch for the genre… Continue Reading →

Melencolia Estatica – Hel (Temple Of Tortuous)

Within three minutes of the start of Hel, the third full length release from Italy’s Melencolia Estatica its pretty clear that the multi-instrumentalist behind it, a lady named Climaxia, isn’t going to make things easy on the listener. Obligatory tolling-bell-followed-by-wall-of-riff… Continue Reading →

Hegerøth – Spectral Fear (SR)

This is a 20 minute-long demo, so there’s not a lot of time to spread atmospheric nastiness. Hegerøth set about their evil business without ado. Whistling sounds accompany furious dark beats and of course rasping vocals. Not sounding so original?… Continue Reading →
