Avslut – Tyranni (Osmose Productions)

No time for messing about. From the off Avslut, which I believe means “Closed” in Swedish take us down the darkest and most violent path. Dark Funeral meets Marduk. “Stigens Ände”, the second track stirred me more, dragging us along… Continue Reading →

Advent Sorrow – Kali Yuga Crown (Werewolf)

Weapon in hand, flick knives flashing, petrol bombs flying … the violence depicted in the lyrics of Advent Sorrow feels at times all too real. ‘Mass graves… superior men and women driven by hate for weakness… The feeling we get… Continue Reading →

Myronath – Into the Qliphoth (Non Serviam)

I confess I had to look up what the qliphoth is, and now know it is a representation of evil or impure forces in Jewish mysticism. The evil and impure part of this is not so surprising when you consider… Continue Reading →

Patronymicon – Ushered Forth by Cloven Tongue (Osmose)

With band members such as N. Sadist, J. Malice and M. Feral, originality doesn’t promise to be on the agenda here. This is the third album from the Swedish black metallers. I spent a lot of time working out who… Continue Reading →

Darkend – Spiritual Resonance (Dark Essence)

If you have ever seen macabre looking lead singer Animæ in action before, Italian cult act Darkend are not a name you are likely to have forgotten. He popped up in London at the Dome and did some guest vocals… Continue Reading →

Unmensch – Scorn (Immortal Frost Productions)

I was surprised to learn that Unmensch hadn’t been snapped up as a name. It’s as it sounds. This is a cold and misanthropic black metal band from Belgium, with whom, we’re told, comparisons can be made with the likes… Continue Reading →

Total Hate – Throne Behind a Black Veil (Eisenwald)

Powerful and authoritative from the opening chords, Total Hate set the precedent from the offset. The vocals on ‘Psychopath’ are dominant and potent and work together with Aer and Erebos on the guitars, with Serrator creating the formidable and controlling… Continue Reading →

Panzerfaust – The Suns Of Perdition: Chapter I: War, Horrid War (Eisenwald)

How have I not alighted on this band previously? World War II (loosely) themed Canadian black metallers Panzerfaust have been kicking around for a while now but, with only three albums before this, it’s perhaps understandable they could have flown… Continue Reading →

Deus Mortem – Kosmocide (Terratur Possessions)

A bit of Polish black metal never did anyone any harm. Deus Mortem from Wroclaw now bring us their second album from the chasms of chaos and destruction. As you’d expect, this album has an uncompromising and violent edge. Deus… Continue Reading →

Totalitarian – Bloodlands (Barren Void)

It is promised that we will be dragged through the streets of Warsaw, across the fields of Treblinka, into the marshes of Belarus, or into the death pits of Babi Yar. Our guides are Italian band Totalitarian. This EP is… Continue Reading →

Ondfodt – Dodsrikets Kallelse (Immortal Frost Productions)

Ondfodt are back, four years after unleashing their uncompromising ‘Hexkonst’ on the world, and they are well and truly cementing their position within the ranks of the Finnish black metal elite. ‘Dodsrikets kallelse’ opens up with an intro that demonstrates… Continue Reading →

Valkyrja – Throne Ablaze (WTC)

In preparation for a European Assault with Marduk and Archgoat, Stockholm’s black metal misanthropists unleash ‘Throne Ablaze’ and they don’t disappoint with a vitriolic display of hostility. Having been spawned in 2004, the Swedes have evolved their sound and gained… Continue Reading →
