Cwealm – Odes to No Hereafter (Dusktone)

Cwealm – Odes to No Hereafter (Dusktone)

Cwealm is a one man black metal project from Sweden. Comparison has been made with 1990s bands releasing material on the No Fashion label such as Lord Belial, Mörk Gryning and Sacramentum. After a spooky opening, “Pale Maleficence” fires off into atmospheric black metal territory... Read More

Between The Frost & Evnar – From The Roots 1993-2105 & E.V.N.A.R. Albums (Winter Demons)

I’m throwing these two in together as both Spanish bands have intertwined members and a lot of common ground between them. Both albums have been recently released by Winter Demons and offshoot of the Darkwoods label who embrace all things black, pagan and folk related.. Read More
Hegemon – The Hierarch (Season of Mist)

Hegemon – The Hierarch (Season of Mist)

Hegemon have been around for a while now – two decades to be exact – shuffling around on the underground with a couple of half decent full-length releases before an album with Season of Mist in 2008. Contemptus Mundi also fell into that burgeoning category.. Read More
Zardens – Blackness Unfolds (Satanath)

Zardens – Blackness Unfolds (Satanath)

I remembered this Belgian band from their 2012 album ‘Breeding The Dark’ which was a good debut of highly proficient melodic black metal in the vein of many bands within the Scandinavian scene. At the time I said I hoped I was going to hear.. Read More
Murg – Varg & Björn (Nordvis)

Murg – Varg & Björn (Nordvis)

It’s been a good year for classic black metal with the bar raised pretty high by a bunch of bands that could easily form the beginnings of a decent top ten even at this stage. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise when, out of.. Read More
Karne – Faith in Flesh (Quality Steel)

Karne – Faith in Flesh (Quality Steel)

In these times when some corners of the black metal scene feel a bit too much like the musical equivalent of a faithful old Labrador – great company for a cold winter evening walk in the woods but about as intimidating as a barrel full.. Read More
Akrotheism – Behold the Son of Plagues (Odium)

Akrotheism – Behold the Son of Plagues (Odium)

The Norwegians may have got there first and the French carry the banner for the most adventurous and bizarre, but the Greeks, well, they just seem to do it better than anyone else. Exhibit A: Akrotheism, who may not be breaking any moulds in black.. Read More
Ensnared – Ravenous Damnations Dawn (Nuclear Winter)

Ensnared – Ravenous Damnations Dawn (Nuclear Winter)

Perfect triplet of unconnected words making up the title of this debut EP from Swede deathsters Ensnared but it gives you a clue what to expect; hunger suffering and the cold light of day. Having previously been active as Gravehammer between 2005-10 this lot changed.. Read More
Warfect - Exoneration Denied (Cyclone Empire)

Warfect – Exoneration Denied (Cyclone Empire)

The press release labels this trio as Swedish Thrash Maniacs and while I can wholly concur in regards to this statement musically, Fredrik Wester’s vocals are more a blend of Gothenburg death metal and black metal rasps than any thrash bands I listen to. This.. Read More
Denouncement Pyre – Almighty Arcanum (Hells Headbangers)

Denouncement Pyre – Almighty Arcanum (Hells Headbangers)

This Melbourne based lot have been around since 2004 and have released a fair few demos, splits, EP’s and an album ‘World Cremation’ in 2010, prior to this. I have to admit that they had pretty much escaped me until now but the flames have.. Read More
Abazagorath - ST (Novisible Scars)

Abazagorath – ST (Novisible Scars)

Prior to reviewing this I took the time to reacquaint myself with this USBM hordes second full length album ‘Sacraments of the Final Atrocity.’ Whilst it has its good points and a couple of stand out hymns I found it on the whole to be.. Read More
Zardens - Breeding The Dark (SR)

Zardens – Breeding The Dark (SR)

Zardens are a fairly new band from Belgium and this disc subtitled Promo 2012 is, I guess, aimed at looking at getting label attention as well as getting the group’s name out their for some live shows. Country of origin wise, it is not Belgium.. Read More
