Dreamwalkers Inc – A Night at the Theatre (Layered Reality Productions)

This latest work by progsters Dreamwalkers Inc was recorded live at the Parktheater, Alphen aan den Rijn at the end of August 2019. I am fortunate to have been witness to Dreamwalkers Inc’s first live performance, an acoustic set in… Continue Reading →

Triptykon with the Metropole Orkest – Requiem (Live at Roadburn 2019) Century Media

30 years in the making and the hugely anticipated ‘Requiem’ is unleashed. ‘Requiem’ was started by the legendary Celtic Frost and finalised into the package that sits before us today by the new generation of Tom G Warrior and his… Continue Reading →

Winterfylleth – The Siege of Mercia (Candlelight)

It’s been 10 years since Winterfylleth made their debut performance at Bloodstock – one of the first open air festivals to take a chance on the now staple of British black metal when they were in their infancy. The band… Continue Reading →

Entombed – Live Clandestine (Threeman Records)

Some reviews are easier than others, but when you are asked to retrospectively trawl back through the annals of time to offer your thoughts on a live version of what many would consider to be a stone cold classic, genre… Continue Reading →

Ayreon Universe – Best Of Ayreon – Live (Mascot)

If someone as musically innovative and fan-friendly as Arjen Lucassen is approached to release a ‘Best Of’, it’s pretty fair bet he will find a way to do it differently, in a way that treats his fans to something new…. Continue Reading →

Hortus Animae – Piove Sangue Live In Banska Bystriae (Aesthetic Death)

I personally discovered Hortus Animae (The Garden Of The Soul) via last album ‘Secular Music in 2014 although the Italian band had been going since 1997. It came from an unlikely source at least for a ‘progressive black metal’ band… Continue Reading →

Atlantean Kodex – The Annihilation Of Bavaria (Van Records)

Atlantean Kodex. Bavarian purveyors of the richest epic metal outside of Solstice, writers of lyrics both poetic and rich in academic research. A truly remarkable troupe whose last studio album The White Goddess is a genuine classic. If you know… Continue Reading →

My Sleeping Karma – Mela Ananda (Napalm)

Translating from Hindi, Mela Ananda means “A gathering of bliss”. This is a rather fitting album title for the first live recording by Teutonic instrumental giants My Sleeping Karma in their ten year career. With MSK already receiving some pretty… Continue Reading →

Klone – Unplugged (Pelagic Records)

Coming up to two years ago almost, “Here Comes The Sun” by Poitiers based, French six piece Klone came through my letterbox, and I’ll be honest, it was a tough nut to crack musically and even tougher to review but… Continue Reading →

Mayhem – De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive (S/R)

It’s become increasingly more popular of late for bands to play albums in their entirety live and if it is one with historic importance, why not in my opinion. Fans enjoy it and generally it is a draw that’s enough… Continue Reading →

Saint Vitus – Live Vol. 2 (Season of Mist)

There can be little doubt that one of the doom bands with the greatest mystique and legend surrounding them are Saint Vitus, and after the recording hiatus of 17 years after ‘Die Healing’, their 2012 return with ‘Lillie: F-65’ was… Continue Reading →

Opeth – Lamentations (Music for Nations)

This is a strange release, or re-release in fact of Opeth’s “Lamentations” dvd in album form, especially given that the albums “Deliverance” (2002) and “Damnation” (2003) from which most of this double album comes, were themselves re-released as a double… Continue Reading →
