None – Damp Chill Of Life (Hypnotic Dirge)

Although I’m writing about this in the summertime the Damp Chill Of Life is never far away waiting to cast its arthritic pall on proceedings. Masters of depressive and atmospheric doomed blackness, USA based shadowy entities None are back with… Continue Reading →

Enisum – Moth’s Illusion (Avantgarde Music)

Best to say it straight, right? OK then: This is the best album I’ve had to review in quite some time. Enisum might have their name backwards, but apart from that, it appears, they are doing everything right. Enisum are… Continue Reading →

Interview – Wolves In The Throne Room

This interview is one of several which was originally done for a printed publication. Due to production problems it never saw the light of day so is being published here along with several others over the coming week or so…. Continue Reading →

Hermodr – Midnight Eclipse (Wolfspell)

The midnight hour is one that Rafn the man behind Hermodr is at his most fevered and working up a storm in his musical laboratory. Well that’s the way I look at it as he can’t have enough hours in… Continue Reading →

JoDöden – Sittandes i sjön med vatten över huvudet (Nordvis Produktion)

When I came across a site called Depressive Visions, which featured this work, it gave more than a clue what to expect. The gentleman behind this ambient, nature-driven work is from Sweden, and what is evident is that through his… Continue Reading →

Wolves In The Throne Room – Thrice Woven (Artemisia Records)

Wolves In The Throne Room were cultivated in 2003, and graced us with their first studio album in the year 2006, namely ‘Diadem of 12 Stars’. This release has subsequently gone on to become a genre defining classic amongst the… Continue Reading →

Grift – Arvet (Nordvis Produktion)

Swedish nature-gazer Erik Gärdefors is the person behind everything we hear in Grift. He has worked with others in bands such as Insult, Orcivus & Arfsynd but has gone it very much alone here following up debut album Syner and… Continue Reading →

Mavradoxa – Lethean Lament (Hypnotic Dirge Records)

‘Lethean Lament’ is the second album from New York-based atmospheric black metal duo Mavradoxa, and just like the excellent ‘Reclaim The Darkness’ album from Australian band King last year, it’s a massive slab of nature-obsessed majesty. Surprising and dynamic, Lux… Continue Reading →

Fellwarden – Oathbearer (Eisenwald)

Fellwarden is the solo project of The Watcher from Fen (ably supported by Fen drummer Havenless) and whilst you should not necessarily think too long on the relationship between solo projects and a musician’s main band I think here a… Continue Reading →

Forndom – Daudra Dura (Nordvis)

“Let us wander to the worlds beyond ours……” I opened the review of Forndom’s 2015 EP “Flykt” with a quote from the media blurb and feel obliged to do so again since it seems apt for the musical experience on… Continue Reading →

Weh – Ingenmannsland (Soulseller)

This is my third encounter with Erik E and his dark, mournful neo-folk project Weh. The sound as ever is simple and beautifully plain, mostly the deep almost Cohen-esque tones of Erik E and his strummed acoustic guitar, with the… Continue Reading →
