Another Destiny Project – Metodo Paranoico-Critico (SR)

Multi-instrumentalist Peter Pahor’s musical vision in very commendable indeed. He wants his project (that’s Another Destiny Project to you and me…) to be free in every sense. Free from boundaries, industry interference, greed, vanity, commerce – totally, and genuinely free…. Continue Reading →

Dark Man Shadow – Victim Of Negligence (Schwarzdorn)

Symphonic Black Metal… And there you go, half of you reading this have just thought, “Oh, another load of Cradle Of Filth/Dimmu Borgir wannabes”. Fair point. It feels like in the last 10 years the term has been synonymous with… Continue Reading →

Resonance Room – Untouchable Failure (My Kingdom Music)

Dark imagery is at the centre of this work by Resonance Room from Italy. The tones and structures are in the mould of Katatonia, Anathema and Moonspell, and there’s a leaning towards the progressive end of things. But what dominates… Continue Reading →

Moonspell – Alpha Noir (Napalm Records)

Credit where credit is due, Portugal’s Moonspell has had one of the most stable line ups in metal, with the core of the group going back to 1995 and before. Only the bassist is the new fish within the band… Continue Reading →

Llvme – Yia De Nuesu (My Kingdom Music)

With a name that sounds like a Welsh marriage proposal, Llvme are actually from the Leonese region of Spainand their name is the regional word for fire. Purveyors of the finest Leonese folk doom, Llvme perform entirely in their regional… Continue Reading →
