Ascension – Under Ether (World Terror Committee)

In the words of Varg Vikernes “It has nothing to do with Satanism” which may well be true for a lot of Black Metal, particularly the earlier tones of for example Burzum. However that doesn’t mean that the shadow of… Continue Reading →

Ars Magna Umbrae – Through Lunar Gateways (Hellthrasher)

Ready for a “manifestation of the Chthonic forces of Death and a sonic portal to the Nightside?” Well just as well as that is exactly what we have here courtesy of Ars Magna Umbrae from Poland, the work of D.A… Continue Reading →

Insane Vesper – Layil (Art Of Propaganda)

Hailing from Toulouse France, Insane Vesper are a quartet featuring ex members of Pestiferum, Black Worshippers and Amanite. They formed back in 2002 and it looks like they have had a fair few changes line-up wise between then and now… Continue Reading →

Oath – Mustan Liekin Veljeskunta (Immortal Frost)

Acherontas – Ma IoN (Formulas of Reptilian Unification) (WTC)

If the last Acherontas album was ambitious in its scope, then this is on another level altogether. Amenti saw Acherontas spreading their leathery wings in ever more promising directions with some solid occult-laden black metal bathed in a backdrop of… Continue Reading →

Devathorn – Vritra (WTC)

The biog tells us very little unless you walk firmly down the left hand path. It’s all about Qliphothic depths and catacombs, sulphur dragons, storming beasts, draconian flames, gnostic origins and the fiery King Sutekh. Put the lyrical narratives aside… Continue Reading →

Dysangelium – Thanatos Askesis (World Terror Committee)

Dysanglium exploded onto my radar earlier this year with the release of their punishing ‘Leviaxxis’ demo which was distributed by World Terror Committee. The young Germans delivered three tracks of punishing blasphemic spite that demonstrated a knack for concise composition… Continue Reading →
