Misanthropic Existence – Death Shall Be Served (Aesthetic Death)

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 nicely packaged, this album and.. Read More
Arkheth - 12 Winter Moons Comes The Witches Brew (Transcending Obscurity)

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 album marks a new era.. Read More
Vargrav - Netherstorm (Werewolf Records)

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 of black arts”, we are.. Read More
Limbonic Art - Spectre Abysm (Candlelight)

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 been seven long years since.. Read More
Midnight Odyssey - Silhouettes Of Stars (I Voidhanger)

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 this appeared on the review.. Read More
Interview - Devilish Impressions

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 2012, an EP “Adventvs” has.. Read More
Angrenost - Planet Muscaria (Code666)

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 by being picked up by.. Read More
Bornholm – Inexorable Defiance (Noiseart Records)

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 well and truly lit and.. Read More
Melencolia Estatica – Hel (Temple Of Tortuous)

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 aside this six movement piece.. Read More
Hegerøth – Spectral Fear (SR)

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? Well, this kind of metal.. Read More
