Necandi Homines – Black Hole (Third I Rex)

I have not quite worked out whether it is deep space that Italian cult act Necandi Homines have been mining or the void beneath the crust of the earth but they have certainly dredged up some obsidian gold in their… Continue Reading →

Cultes Des Ghoules – Sinister (Hell’s Headbangers)

Sinister by name and sinister by nature, watch out the ghoules are back in town. If you have a certain song going round in your head after reading that line, wipe it out now. This lot are in no way… Continue Reading →

Empty – Vacio (Osmose)

I remembered Spanish band Empty not by their name which is hardly remarkable but by the cover art to their third album The House Of Funerary Hymns which certainly caught my attention on release in 2009 with its spooky imagery… Continue Reading →

Profezia – Dodekaprofeton (Moribund Records)

If Italian Avant Garde is how you like your black metal then you are in for a treat, as the overlords of the Italian occult rock world, Profezia, are back with their long awaited, and highly anticipated 3rd album ‘Dodekaprofeton’…. Continue Reading →

Eroded – Necropath (FDA Records)

Eroded are a two piece death metal unit from Italy and have been around in one form or another since 2003. “Necropath” is their second full length album and the follow up to 2012’s “Engravings Of A Gruesome Epitaph” and… Continue Reading →

Abysmal Grief – Blasphema Secta (Terror From Hell)

Nebiros – VII (Folter Records)

This struck as being strange and an unexpected form of darkness than the straightforward black metal I had anticipated and it pretty much cast its spell over me on the very first listen. Nebiros are a Polish band with the… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival – Oslo, Norway – 4th April 2015

Day Four – Saturday 4th April Taking a short tour with my shooter around some of the records shops in Oslo could have been fatalistic to our finances but we restrained and took some more silly photos amid the piles… Continue Reading →

Ergot – Victims Of Our Same Dreams (De Tenebrarum Principio)

Never sampled it but always been intrigued about Ergot. It’s a fungal growth found on rye and has hallucinogenic properties that made lots of people unsuspectingly trip out through history, unfortunately when taken in unsafe levels in infected bread it… Continue Reading →

Mourning Mist – S/T (Forever Plagued Records)

Something a bit different here from this Italian act helmed by bassist Kvasir of Abhor and Profezia infamy. Rather than doing everything himself he has on this project roped in a violinist going by the name of Ecnerual to temper… Continue Reading →

Mortuary Drape – Spiritual Independence (Iron Tyrant)

If you dig deep enough amongst the swathes of generic, identikit black metal bands out there in the world, occasionally you come across a rare treat; a truly original band. These obscure, underground veterans from Northern Italy have been ploughing… Continue Reading →

Morbid Slaughter – Wicca (Boris Records)

You know just what you are likely to get from a band with such a descriptive moniker as Morbid Slaughter don’t you? Some morbid doom like parts and some veracious old school primitive bludgeoning to boot. When you add country… Continue Reading →
