Dreams Of The Drowned – I (Drowned Anthem Records)

It’s no rare occurrence wading through press releases and being promised albums in a similar vein as lots of favourite artists and neither is the disappointment of listening to them and finding very little similar to what you had hoped…. Continue Reading →

Interview – Manes

Norwegian band Manes recently released “Slow Motion Death Sequence”, their fifth album. This is a band which has experienced various transformations and name changes since 1991, but whose music has always been unusual and on the edge. To find out… Continue Reading →

Manes – Slow Motion Death Sequence (Debemur Morti)

To cut a long story short involving temporary releases, compilations and different band names, Manes are from Trondheim in Norway and thoroughly impressed me with their creative album “Be All End All” (2014). The trick lies in the moods and… Continue Reading →

OPHE – Litteras Ad Tristia Maestrum Solitude (My Kingdom Music)

Not much to go on here, but I did establish that OPHE is a one man avant-garde black metal outfit, and the one man likes people like DHG, Blut aus Nord, Manes and Anorexia Nervosa. So that’s good. As for… Continue Reading →

Vulture Industries – Stranger Times (Season Of Mist)

There’s no denying that we are living in stranger times and can only thank all things within this chaotic era for music like this, something that reflects the lunacy we are dwelling amidst, during our short time on this crazy… Continue Reading →

Fleurety – Inquietum (Aesthetic Death)

I have had a bit of an infatuation with Fleurety ever since hearing their incredibly weird and breath-taking 1995 album Min tid Skal Komme. It subverted genre within the black metal world that I had come to love from Norway… Continue Reading →

Atrox – Monocle (Dark Essence)

Avant-garde perfection cannot be rushed and it has been one hell of a long wait since last album Binocular from Atrox way back in 2008. They are still very much looking through a glass lens which could well see them… Continue Reading →

White Ward – Futility Report (Debemur Morti)

Well fuck me (Er..don’t actually. Pretty sure neither of us would enjoy it…), a PR sheet that speaks the truth! ‘A metallic version of Ulver’s Perdition City.. ‘ Yep, that’s it. Or a melodic death metal version at least. Now… Continue Reading →

Mortiis – The Great Corrupter (Omnipresence)

Just last year the Goblin King that isn’t Bowie released The Great Deceiver.  That collection of electrified cyber goth metal pelvic thrusted its cod pieced way into my albums of the year and tracks remain part of both my radio… Continue Reading →

Abisso – WRNSS (Third I Rex)

Bold claims and bold associations on behalf of this Sardinian duo courtesy of their label – happily namechecking such luminaries as Deathspell Omega and Lurker of Chalice immediately places expectations on overdrive for an assault of dissonant, atmospheric black metal… Continue Reading →

Drudkh / Hades Almighty – One Who Talks With the Fog / Pyre Era, Black! ( Season Of Mist/ Dark Essence)

An interesting coming together of two acts that are rapidly approaching legendary status within black metal circles, albeit for somewhat different reasons. Drudkh are the enigmatic Ukrainian outfit who never play live, never carry out interviews and have since seen… Continue Reading →
