Paradise Lost – Medusa (Nuclear Blast)

Paradise Lost – Medusa (Nuclear Blast)

Now, if you thought that the veteran gothic/doom metalers had gone back to basics with 2015’s ‘The Plague Within’, wait until you hear this gnarly little fucker. Almost completely devoid of PL’s more grandiose leanings, ‘Medusa’ is certainly their heaviest album to date, but as.. Read More
End of Green – Void Estate (Napalm Records)

End of Green – Void Estate (Napalm Records)

“Dark. Loud. Stuttgart” is what’s written about End of Green. I’m not sure what image I’m supposed to have of Stuttgart other than a picture of urban Germany. I’m not entirely convinced about the “loud” part either as what I was listening to was a.. Read More
Vallenfyre – Fear Those Who Fear Him (Century Media)

Vallenfyre – Fear Those Who Fear Him (Century Media)

Crust, death, doom, dirt fans rejoice Yorkshire’s finest purveyors of filth Vallenfyre are back with album number three. Really this lot should need no introduction at all. Spearheaded by Gregor Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) and Hamish Glencross (ex My Dying Bride) this reminds us of the.. Read More
Shores Of Null – Black Drapes For Tomorrow (Candlelight Records)

Shores Of Null – Black Drapes For Tomorrow (Candlelight Records)

I bought this band’s debut at the Inferno Festival in 2016 along with a shirt as they were one of the best bands of the festival and I admit to being a bit nervy about this sophomore album as the first one was unique, a.. Read More
Evocation – The Shadow Archetype (Metal Blade)

Evocation – The Shadow Archetype (Metal Blade)

Always good to hear a new record from one of the hidden gems of the Swedish death metal scene. Always the underdog and criminally overlooked in the scene, Evocation have been in existence for what must be 25 years now but this is only their.. Read More
Unearthly Trance - Stalking The Ghost (Relapse)

Unearthly Trance – Stalking The Ghost (Relapse)

It’s been a while. Six years since their last full length and ten since I last crossed paths with Unearthly Trance. As my losing touch was accidental (money, time, health) rather than deliberate it’s good to know where they are on album number six. The.. Read More
Interview - Alunah

Interview – Alunah

For over 10 years, since first coming together in the English Midlands in 2006, Alunah have trafficked in a blend of the earthly and the unearthly.  2017 sees the band releasing their highly anticipated fourth album Solennial in partnership with new label Svart.  Vocalist/guitarist/songwriting band..

Lord Vigo – Blackbourne Souls  (No Remorse Records)

Lord Vigo – Blackbourne Souls (No Remorse Records)

It’s first review of the year, and I’ve often thought that the first one can prepare the tone for the year. A good release sets up a feeling of quiet optimism, whilst conversely, a lemon can paint a landscape of “meh”. Well, with ‘Blackbourne Souls’.. Read More
Trees of Eternity - Hour of the Nightingale (Svart)

Trees of Eternity – Hour of the Nightingale (Svart)

What really sucks about this album is that for South African born vocalist Aleah Starbridge, its release is posthumous. She and Swallow The Sun guitarist Juha Raivio created Trees of Eternity as an acoustic collaboration, but it pretty soon morphed into more with the inclusion.. Read More
Uncoffined - Ceremonies Of Morbidity (Momento Mori)

Uncoffined – Ceremonies Of Morbidity (Momento Mori)

Ah, the return of Uncoffined. Filled by members and former members of Winds Of Genocide and disbanded Blessed Realm, their debut album Ritual Death And Funeral Rites was a little hidden masterclass in how to make old school death/doom metal, or ‘heavy doom metal of.. Read More
Truckfighters- V (Century Media)

Truckfighters- V (Century Media)

Five albums into their career, “V” finds Truckfighters in fine form and obviously a band comfortable with their place in the world. The Swedes continue to blast away with their own style of fuzz laden, stoner metal that has earned them well deserved praise from.. Read More
Albez Duz – Wings Of Tzinacan (Listenable Records)

Albez Duz – Wings Of Tzinacan (Listenable Records)

‘Wings Of Tzinacan’ is the third album from Berlin-based occult doom outfit Albez Duz, and the 2nd release to feature vocalist Alfonso Brito. Alfonso is certainly a man of many voices. There’s a kind of gnarly Eddie Vedder/Chris Cornell one, a deep Peter Steele type.. Read More
