Dead Kosmonaut – Rekviem (High Roller Records)

Now this is a quirky bunch from Sweden whose sophomore EP takes you down a time portal into the 70s where riffing trickery was linked to emotive powerhouse lead work. Comprising of five established musicians notably Pelle Gustafson from Nifelheim… Continue Reading →

Capilla Ardiente – The Siege (High Roller Records)

Over five years ago I wrote these words on this very site “Capilla Ardiente (Burning Chapel) hail from Chile, play doom, and readily admit to being inspired by those far more European veterans Candlemass” Well, now in 2019, both Capilla… Continue Reading →

Craft – White Noise And Black Metal (Season of Mist)

Vitriolic, malevolent, demonic and raw are all words which combine to provide us with this long awaited full-length release from these Swedish comrades of the black metal underworld. ‘White Noise And Black Metal’ is expelled onto us from this misanthropic… Continue Reading →

Necrophobic – Mark Of The Necrogram (Century Media)

Destroyer 666 – Call Of The Wild (Season Of Mist)

Nifelheim, Craven Idol & Funeral Throne – London Underworld 26/5/17

Grave Desecrator – Dust To Lust (Season Of Mist)

Inferno Festival – Day 4 – Oslo, Norway 26/3/16

Saturday 26th March 2016 Awaking on Saturday morning I was feeling distinctly unwell not completely down to my alcohol intake but it certainly contributed to it. With another day of extremity to behold later I decided that wandering about today… Continue Reading →
