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 →

Superlynx – New Moon (Dark Essence)

Firstly, allow me to climb up upon my high horse and shout; “FEMALE FRONTED IS NOT A GENRE!” Right, now I’ve got that out of my system and dismounted having had my rant against lazy reviewers (yes, I’m sure I’ve… Continue Reading →

Blodhemn – Mot Ein Evig Ruin (Soulseller Records)

Mr Invisus has been competently plugging away at this game since 2004, with full length releases in 2012 and 2014, and though it’s been five years since the sophomore album, we are reminded very quickly that quality trumps quantity. The… Continue Reading →

Ribozyme – Argute (Indie Records)

Well, that’s new. A press info that starts with a quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. If I now go on ranting about the quote, just remember that you went there first and don’t blame me for taking the bait. I’m a… Continue Reading →

Drottnar – Monolith (Endtime Productions)

“Monolith” is Drottnar’s third album release, but this hides the fact that the Norwegians have been together for over 20 years, initially as a death metal band before turning to Viking Black metal and in the last 15 years a… Continue Reading →

DØDSFALL – Døden Skal Ikke Vente (Osmose Productions)

I have to admit that although I listened to DØDSFALL a lot in the early days, and their debut album ‘Den Svarte Skogen’ in particular really struck a chord with me, they had fallen off my radar a little in… Continue Reading →

NAG – Nagged To Death (Fysisk Format)

Can’t complain, this is the right way to get ‘nagged to death’ especially when the means of doing so is by delivering us a nice slab of vinyl. It was a timely arrival too as I have been reading A… Continue Reading →

Whoredom Rife – NID – Hymner Av Hat (Terratur Possessions)

Norwegian black metal is perhaps one of the most infamous genres of music with a seemingly endless catalogue of dubious events that will forever be entwined with the distinctive brand of majestic icy blasts. However, since the infamous early 90s… Continue Reading →
