My Dying Bride – The Ghost Of Orion (Nuclear Blast)

Talk about borne from all manner of hardships. It’s no surprise and well-documented why we have not heard the studio misery of My Dying Bride for 5 years. Firstly, every parent’s worse nightmare struck vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe when his 5-year-old… Continue Reading →

Godthrymm – Reflections (Profound Lore)

It’s always fun to discover a new artist and be among the first to do so. Partly because it makes you feel like a part of that bands journey, but also because it means you can be that annoying ‘I… Continue Reading →

Dominia – The Withering Of The Rose (MSH Music Group)

Melancholy, inescapable heartache, night of despair, loss, exhausting, plaintive tears, velvet darkness. Just a few of the buzz-words in the promotional information that the record company kindly arms us writers with when preparing to do a review of this latest… Continue Reading →

Sun Of The Dying – The Earth Is Silent (Art Of Propaganda)

Currently the earth is not silent, far from it, it is a tumultuous place seething with monstrous acts as nature battles with humanity for dominance, and if Sun Of The Dying had anything to do with it then this would… Continue Reading →

Novembers Doom – Nephilim Grove (Prophecy Productions)

Burial In The Woods – Church Of Dagon (Rain Without End Records)

The press release for this outfit is sadly lacking in detail, however my superior Google-Fu Boolean Fist has unearthed a little background for you. Hailing from a picturesque southern district of German Bavaria, lone multi-instrumentalist Gerileme recorded a demo of doomy black… Continue Reading →

Tel – Lowlife (Aural Music)

“Tel” hail from Richmond, Virginia. Their name, as it turns out, is not a reference to the much missed Terry Wogan, but rather a Hebrew term meaning the rebuilding of a civilisation over the ashes of its former self. Or… Continue Reading →

Il Vuoto – Vastness (Hypnotic Dirge)

It is time to enter “the void” courtesy of Italian composer Matteo Gruppi el maestro behind everything we hear on Il Vuoto’s second full length album following on from ‘Weakness’ in 2015. We are informed that ‘Vastness is a painting… Continue Reading →
