Ephemeral – VII (S/R)

Ephemeral is a three-piece Melodic Death Metal project based out of Thessaloniki in the northern reaches of Greece. With its main core composing of E2 (vocals/guitar/bass/orchestration), Angel (keyboards/orchestration) and Kostas Matis (drums), the trio have created a tight melodic death… Continue Reading →

Angelcrypt – Dawn Of The Emperor (Boersma-Records)

Maltese act Angelcrypt has been around for nearly two decades now, though their release rate has been rather sporadic with a sprinkling of singles, two EPs and an album during that time. This second full length comes some four years… Continue Reading →

Across The Shade – Hope (S/R)

Polish Melodic Death Metal quartet Across The Shade come at us with a simple named offering for their debut full-length release. “Hope” is an 8 track, sub-40 minute Melodic Death Metal attack which you could easily mistake for being something… Continue Reading →

In Human Form – III (I, Voidhanger)

This band from Massachusetts doesn’t conform to stereotypes. An avantgarde front stands with extreme metal and an avowed love of prog-jazz fusion. We don’t lurch from one passage to another as it’s smoother than that, but you have to have… Continue Reading →

Maïeutiste – Veritas (LADLO Productions)

Avant progressive black metal is the style. Literary and philosophic concepts are the themes purveyed by this French band. A high-pitched riff, pounding drums and harsh vocals provide an interesting mix. That’s before the epic chorus of the opening title… Continue Reading →

Insomnium – Heart Like a Grave (Century Media)

Even though Insomnium have been around for 22 years, have released 8 albums and I have watched them several times live, this is the first album of theirs that I’ve listened to in full. And I can quite happily say… Continue Reading →

Kaleikr – Heart of Lead (Debemur Morti)

Iceland is home to a number of remarkably good bands, and here’s another in Kaleikr. Formed in 2016, this debut album is labelled as “black metal for fans of Opeth and Enslaved”. It’s evident from the beginning that “Heart of… Continue Reading →

Omnium Gatherum – The Burning Cold (Century Media)

Wow! While I’ve seen Omnium Gatherum a good few times and have a couple of their albums, I did not realise they have been around for 22 years already and that this is their eighth album. Granted, there have been… Continue Reading →

Unreal Overflows – Latent (Great Dane)

I’m not normally bothered about band names but I have to say that this year so far the quality of some of the names has impressed me more than the albums I’ve heard. First there was Questionable Blood Pressure. Now… Continue Reading →

Tribulation – Down Below (Century Media)

Maybe it’s a Swedish thing, but Tribulation struck me as a strange bunch when I saw them live. They were energetic, creative and interesting in a darkly melodic and progressive way. I liked their album “Children of the Night” (2015),… Continue Reading →

Angel Nation – Aeon (Inner Wounds Recordings)

A while ago I found myself enjoying an album called ‘Tears of Lust’ by a little known band called EnkeliNation, and this opinion was later reinforced by strong showings at the Bloodstock and Dames of Darkness festivals. Fast forward to… Continue Reading →

Dawn Of Disease – Ascension Gate (Napalm)

The follow up to the 2016 release “Worship the Grave” sees Osnabrück’s Melodic Death Metallers, Dawn Of Disease return once again to bring riffs, harmonies and growls in an effort to give those pesky Scandinavian’s a run for their money… Continue Reading →
