Enslaved - E (Nuclear Blast)

Enslaved – E (Nuclear Blast)

With a discography to die for, our favourite black metal innovators, Enslaved, are back and they have something new hiding up their wizard sleeves. Here, on their fourteenth long-player, they exercise their love for the Norse god of War, Odin, and they sem hell-bent on.. Read More
Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere (Karisma Records)

Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere (Karisma Records)

The interesting thing about Norway’s Wobbler, whose fourth album this is, is that they push boundaries in the world of prog, yet their music is so recognisable. This, without doubt, is the charm of it. This prog that they peddle is of an older school.. Read More
Mork -  Eremittens Dal (Peaceville)

Mork – Eremittens Dal (Peaceville)

Even before you reach the music here with Thomas Eriksen’s Mork one man project, you kind of get big galloping clues as to what you’ll get. From the logo to artwork and even the damned label you are walloped in the face with a whole.. Read More
Sarke -  Viige Urh (Indie)

Sarke – Viige Urh (Indie)

In 2016 Sarke released Bogefod a concept album built around a millennia old Viking legend involving a zombie king. It was as fantastic as it sounds. So now Noctruno Culto, Sarke, Anders Hunstad, Asgeir Mickelson and Steinar Gundersen are back with their fifth full length... Read More
Gothminister – The Other Side (AFM)

Gothminister – The Other Side (AFM)

The term “gothic” seems to have a particular meaning in Germany. My experience of rummaging around record stores there is that everything, including Opeth, counts as gothic. From the self-explanatory “Gothic Electronic Anthems” (2003) onwards, Gothminister have been pumping out dark electro metal. This one.. Read More
Himmellegeme – Myth of Earth (Karisma Records)

Himmellegeme – Myth of Earth (Karisma Records)

Psych rock and atmospheric prog rock are at the heart of this album from Norwegian band Himmellegeme, so it’s not surprising to see the points of reference as Sigur Rós, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. To make this work, the sound has to be.. Read More
Nattverd - Vi Vet gud Er En Løgner (Darker Than Black Records)

Nattverd – Vi Vet gud Er En Løgner (Darker Than Black Records)

Not a huge amount of information is available about Nattvard who like their name translates we are taking ‘Communion’ with here. They are a duo from Norway and there’s no doubting their mission with Vi Vet gud Er En Løgner which is calling God a.. Read More
Urarv – Aurum (Svart)

Urarv – Aurum (Svart)

This particular album has been a number of years in the making. At the head of Urarv is Björn Aldrahn Dencker of DHG and Thorns. His original idea was a folk-inspired solo album but as time went on, additional musicians came in and the musical.. Read More
Vulture Industries – Stranger Times (Season Of Mist)

Vulture Industries – Stranger Times (Season Of Mist)

There’s no denying that we are living in stranger times and can only thank all things within this chaotic era for music like this, something that reflects the lunacy we are dwelling amidst, during our short time on this crazy planet. It’s been a great.. Read More
Satyricon - Deep calleth upon Deep (Napalm)

Satyricon – Deep calleth upon Deep (Napalm)

Satyricon have returned from a night at the opera, armed with a record that sounds…well, to these ears anyway…quite similar to the last few. Great news if you enjoyed ‘Now, Diabolical’ and ‘Age of Nero’ but not so good if you were expecting (as promised).. Read More
Atrox – Monocle (Dark Essence)

Atrox – Monocle (Dark Essence)

Avant-garde perfection cannot be rushed and it has been one hell of a long wait since last album Binocular from Atrox way back in 2008. They are still very much looking through a glass lens which could well see them working on a trilogy (what.. Read More
Midgardsblot - Borre, Vestfold, Norway 17 – 19th August 2017 Day 3

Midgardsblot – Borre, Vestfold, Norway 17 – 19th August 2017 Day 3

DAY THREE: SATURDAY Day three was to be much less frantic as I started with the usual bus ride that included a test by the bus driver in my pronunciation of the bus stop we were to get off at, which caused much amusement to.. Read More
