Mayhem, Gaahl’s Wyrd & GosT – London Electric Ballroom 4/11/19

You have to wonder if we would have been here if history had been different, if Varg had not killed Euronymous and Necrobutcher had instead (he was going to you know)? Here we are though, just after the release of… Continue Reading →

Mayhem – Daemon (Century Media)

No background details needed here, apart from the fact perhaps that we now see Mayhem on new label Century Media; they had a good run on Season Of Mist. This is all about the music and not the infamy of… Continue Reading →

1349 – The Infernal Pathway (Season Of Mist)

Finally, Black Metal season! A lot of Black Metal musicians comment upon the atmosphere of a forest or grand landscapes and how they feed into their music. This might seem like a bit of a ludicrous statement to many but… Continue Reading →

Mortem – Ravensvart (Peaceville)

30 years between releases is a long time by anyone’s standards and if you missed Mortem when they released their debut demo tape ‘Slow Death’ in 1989 I am sure you can be forgiven and this tape is very much… Continue Reading →

Blitzkrieg Baby – Homo Sapiens Parasitus (Neuropa Records)

End of the world loony tunes, Blitzkrieg Baby are back with their second album and it ain’t gonna be pleasant in the slightest. If you are an end of days prophet though, this could be your new soundtrack to Armageddon… Continue Reading →

Eternity – To Become the Great Beast (Soulseller)

This band is a bit of who’s who in Norwegian black metal, providing an instant interest and attraction. The people in question are the band creator Evighet, who is supported in this collection of destruction by Blasphemer of Mayhem and… 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 →

Whiskey Ritual – Black Metal Ultras (Folter Records)

Filthy, raw, drug & alcohol obsessed black metal with added Satan & hookers….. sounds fucking great doesn’t it…. and guess what, it is! These Italian animals are coming in your ears with this, their fourth album and the follow up… Continue Reading →

Popiol – Zabobony (Godz Ov War)

‘Zabobony’ is Popiols debut creation, yet instead of it being an unveiling, it is more of a long awaited resurrection as the workings were originally conceived and created some two decades ago and were formulated by polish stalwarts Thy Worshipper…. Continue Reading →

Hegerøth – Degenerate (Mara Productions)

“Album can be classified as black metal” is the raw message. No messing. It’s been five years since the impressive “Three Emperors Triangle”, as black and atmospheric affair as you could wish for. It’s great to see these Poles back… Continue Reading →

Vargrav – Reign In Supreme Darkness (Werewolf Records)

As we move ever closer to the summer months I find my adoration for Black Metal and Blackened music dwindling. Essentially I am like a Metal tortoise, in the sun I flourish with the brighter more energetic tones of Death,… 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 →
