In these turbulent times where we have been plunged into a world of uncertainty, lockdown, isolation and ever spiralling death tolls I am sure we are all looking for a psychological release until humanity wins this battle against the biggest… Continue Reading →

Ehlder – Nordabetraktelse (Nordvis)

Whatever was written way back in 2002 is long since forgotten and indeed lost but I distinctly remember the impact behind Armagedda’s debut album of Swedish black metal that was ‘The Final War Approaching.’ It was a hefty album of… Continue Reading →

Murg –Strävan (Nordvis)
