Firespawn – Abomination (Century Media Records)

There is a train of thought that when well established band members invest their time, skill and energy into a new project,that said ability can be spread too far, even when you have such elite members that comprise this Swedish… Continue Reading →

Anomalie – Integra (AOP Records)

Bone Gnawer – Cannibal Crematorium (Pulverised)

Inferno Festival – Oslo, Norway – 1st April 2015

  Day One – Wednesday 1st April The 15th anniversary of Norway’s most prestigious metal festival had me saving up for months prior to descending upon it. The second incarnation of Blastfest held in February was also a tempting proposition… Continue Reading →

Karne – Faith in Flesh (Quality Steel)

In these times when some corners of the black metal scene feel a bit too much like the musical equivalent of a faithful old Labrador – great company for a cold winter evening walk in the woods but about as… Continue Reading →

Akrotheism – Behold the Son of Plagues (Odium)

The Norwegians may have got there first and the French carry the banner for the most adventurous and bizarre, but the Greeks, well, they just seem to do it better than anyone else. Exhibit A: Akrotheism, who may not be… Continue Reading →

Astrophobos – Remnants of Forgotten Horrors (Triumvirate Records)
