Doedsvangr – Satan Ov Suns (Immortal Frost Productions)

Doedsvangr – Satan Ov Suns (Immortal Frost Productions)

Tread carefully for we are about to enter the fields of death! Doedsvangr may well be a new name to us but the unholy triumvirate behind this cult are not. Lead singer of Nordjevel and Svartelder Doedadmiral, has collaborated with Tsjuder sticksman Anti-Christian and Shatraug.. Read More
White Willow – Future Hopes (The Laser's Edge)

White Willow – Future Hopes (The Laser’s Edge)

For those who want metal, metal, and nothing but metal, move along now; like the droids in Star Wars, these are not the songs you are looking for. Yes, I know some folks have tried to chisel in references to ambient black metal into their.. Read More
Byrdi – Ansur : Urkraft (Troll Music)

Byrdi – Ansur : Urkraft (Troll Music)

Raise your horns, light the camp fire and blend with nature! If you like traditional songs in Norwegian, Byrdi is your world. Folk-tribal drums, acoustic guitars and epic vocals emitted with crystal clarity covers it but this is far too mundane a description. From the.. Read More
Nidingr – The High Heat Licks Against Heaven (Indie)

Nidingr – The High Heat Licks Against Heaven (Indie)

This Norwegian group have always been about keeping things authentic and although they have been quiet since 2012 release ‘Greatest Of Deceivers’ it would appear they have been studying studiously in preparation for its follow up. Reading between the lines we are informed that the.. Read More
Shaarimoth - Temple Of The Adversarial Fire (World Terror Committee)

Shaarimoth – Temple Of The Adversarial Fire (World Terror Committee)

Judging by the band name and the fact this band is from Norway one would assume that this is a black metal band. An assumption that proves unfounded on this sophomore following a debut called “Current 11” released over a decade ago in 2005. With.. Read More
Helheim – landawarijaR (Dark Essence)

Helheim – landawarijaR (Dark Essence)

I could not have asked for a better musical companion to the last couple of cold winter weeks and Norse Viking brigade Helheim’s 9th album has been spun on a near daily basis. There’s always plenty of depth about their work and everything is as.. Read More
Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive (S/R)

Mayhem – De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive (S/R)

It’s become increasingly more popular of late for bands to play albums in their entirety live and if it is one with historic importance, why not in my opinion. Fans enjoy it and generally it is a draw that’s enough to have show’s selling out,.. Read More
Sarkom – Anti-Cosmic Art (Dark Essence)

Sarkom – Anti-Cosmic Art (Dark Essence)

It’s been a few years since we last heard from doomsday elitists Sarkom and another battering slice of true Norwegian black metal is highly anticipated from the line-up containing past and present members of So Much For Nothing, Magister Templi, Svarthaueg and Dodheimsgard. Their last.. Read More
Black Hole Generator - A Requiem For Terra (Dark Essence)

Black Hole Generator – A Requiem For Terra (Dark Essence)

As I write this it looks as though the ‘American people’ have elected a president. After staring in abject disbelief at their ‘choice’ the black, stripped, hopeless sound of the title and title track here are an appropriate soundscape to slash open your soul to... Read More
Wardruna – Runaljod - Ragnarok (By Norse)

Wardruna – Runaljod – Ragnarok (By Norse)

What better way to introduce Ragnarok, the third and final part of Wardruna’s 8-year trilogy, with a towering battle hymn to Tyr. One of the less readily recognised Norse gods these days (at least for non-metal fans I should perhaps add), but he was undoubtedly.. Read More
Slegest – Vidsyn (Dark Essence)

Slegest – Vidsyn (Dark Essence)

I Fortida Sitt Lis starts up and after the storm sample it winds up on a riff that sounds pretty much like Hawkwind playing black metal. Welcome to the world of Slegest; a curious and determinedly individual take on black metal created by Ese when.. Read More
Madder Mortem – Red In Tooth And Claw (Dark Essence)

Madder Mortem – Red In Tooth And Claw (Dark Essence)

Now this is a very welcome return! Although Madder Mortem never actually split up they have definitely been on what can only be described as serious hiatus. It was 2009-2010 when we last heard from them with album ‘Eight Ways’ and follow up EP ‘Where.. Read More
