Chrome Waves – A Grief Observed (AvantGarde Music)

Nachtmystium – Resilient (Prophecy)

It’s been a long and fucked up ride for U.S. black metal experimentalists Nachtmystium… A band whose “Black Meddle” has won critical acclaim, but whose leader has courted controversy and divided opinion. But no matter on how you feel about… Continue Reading →

Kommandant – Blood Eel (ATMF)

The raging gas masked war-machine from Chicago are back. I have been faithfully following musical orders from Kommandant since they sent in their 2010 EP Kontakt, a couple of albums have followed and the band have collaborated on a host… Continue Reading →

Wolvhammer – The Monuments of Ash and Bone (Blood Music)

Quite a statement of intent on this, Shroud of Satan’s debut full-length album. The German band’s inlay proudly proclaims the following… “Shroud of Satan considers Black Metal as a cult to be preserved and honoured. We refuse to accept any… Continue Reading →

Mortichnia – Heir To Scoria And Ash (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

The Lion’s Daughter – Existence Is Horror (Season Of Mist)

This poor little cub has been left on our reviews list all alone for some time, unloved with no interest and I felt sorry for it. A few days before release into the wild record shops I thought I best… Continue Reading →

Abigail Williams – The Accuser (Candlelight)

With only Sorceron remaining as the founding member this US act that has released some of the most glorious epic black metal albums I’ve ever heard culminating in the gargantuan opus “Becoming” three years ago. Round about this point it… Continue Reading →

Corrections House – Know How To Carry A Whip (Neurot)
