Darkthrone – Old Star (Peaceville)

Yep I know this is in the shops (what few remain) already but we are not exactly late to the party. The old stars behind the album should need no introduction Gylve and Ted aka Fenriz and Nocturno Culto have… Continue Reading →

Vingulmork – Avgrunn (Crime Records)

Power, hostility, groove, technicality, venom, the adjectives could keep spilling out in relation to this latest EP release, Avgrunn, by aggressive blackened Norwegians Vingulmork. The release clocks in at just over 20 minutes and doesn’t relent throughout the four crushing… Continue Reading →

Gaahls WYRD – GastiR – Ghosts Invited (Season of Mist)

Gaahl is synonymous with black metal and is a true uber behemoth of the world, a demi god, if you will, of the genre and any new work by the master is welcomed with open arms. Gaahls Wyrd has been… Continue Reading →

Kampfar – Ofidians Manifest (Indie)

Without a shadow of a doubt Kampfar are one of the leading Scandinavian pagan black metal bands with a hugely respected output of releases going back to 1995. Perhaps we had been taking them for granted just a little too… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival Day Two – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 19/4/19

My second day of Inferno started with a trip to the Kniven bar at 1430 for Psykopath and Sepulcher who were playing during the afternoon prior to the main festival. I made my way to the venue and descended the… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival Day One – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 18/4/19

Having been suitably warmed up by the Indie Recordings Label Night, I could not wait for the main festival to get underway. As I’m sure most of you know, Inferno Metal Festival is a four day event that takes place… Continue Reading →

Inferno Warm Up – Vaterland Oslo Norway 17/4/19

Inferno Metal Festival is one of my highlights of the year and this year the festivities were extended by a day as Indie Recordings ran a label night (as they did last year) the night before the festival started showcasing… Continue Reading →

Mork – Det Svarte Juv (Peaceville)

As I remarked on their previous album Thomas Eriksen’s Mork are one of those bands that manage the impossible of being both very old school Norwegian black metal, but also very much of this time and space and forward looking…. Continue Reading →

Helheim – New Song Ísuð Premiere

With the date of Norwegian Viking warriors Helheim’s tenth album Rignir fast approaching via Dark Essence Records 0n the 26th April, Ave Noctum is proud to present a first taster from it in the form of the UK Premiere of… Continue Reading →

Black Magic – Wizard’s Spell (Dark Essence)

Maybe it’s just me (and invariably when I say that, it has often been known to be), but I feel really edgy and apprehensive when a record label re-issues a release calling it “Legendary” and as with this one, “One… Continue Reading →

Nordjevel – Necrogenesis (Osmose Productions)

It is always nice to find a band during the early days of their career and support them with an air of smugness as the rest of the world (and by that I mean the metal underground!) eventually catches on…. Continue Reading →

Goatkraft – Sulphurous Northern Bestiality (Iron Bonehead)

War Metal, the veracious embodiment of stereotypes within the Metal scene. Outsiders looking in on the world of Metal see themes of horror, blasphemy, destruction, warfare and chaos. If you’re being completely honest with yourself are these not the things… Continue Reading →
