Loathfinder – The Great Tired Ones (Godz ov War)

Loathfinder – The Great Tired Ones (Godz ov War)

Top marks to Loathfinder (no I’ve no idea what a Loath is or where to find one) for clocking in at full ambitious tilt on their first outing. The Great Tired Ones are a total mystery to me too, by the way, and I’m none.. Read More
Batushka & Noctem – London, The Dome 22/5/17

Batushka & Noctem – London, The Dome 22/5/17

If you have dreams of upstaging a fast growing phenomenon like Batushka, you’ll need to come up with something good. So probably best to plug your fingers into the nearest demonic power socket, aim yourself roughly in the direction of the stage and grimace your.. Read More
Warfist – Metal To The Bone (Godz Ov War Productions)

Warfist – Metal To The Bone (Godz Ov War Productions)

Warfist. I won’t lie, not being familiar with the band the first image that came into my head was a load of spotty inadequates, smelling of TCP sat round a table throwing dice and moving miniature wizards about. But no. Wrong again Marky. This bunch.. Read More
Kingdom – Sepulchral Psalms From The Abyss Of Torment (Godz Ov War Productions)

Kingdom – Sepulchral Psalms From The Abyss Of Torment (Godz Ov War Productions)

Godz Ov War Productions is on a roll with a slew of decent releases this year within the death metal sphere as Polish act Kingdom release their third album on the back of two albums released in 2009 and 2013. Sticking to a formula of.. Read More
Misanthropic Rage – Gates No Longer Shut (Godz ov War)

Misanthropic Rage – Gates No Longer Shut (Godz ov War)

And fire swept the earth. No, it’s not Enslaved but Poland’s Misanthropic Rage who cast all asunder with their avant-garde progressive metal. A dark, croaky voice echoes behind a full-out sound which bounces off walls, crunches buildings and creates expanses and big atmospheres. Frequent tempo.. Read More
Hate – Tremendum (Napalm)

Hate – Tremendum (Napalm)

Hate are one of the long standing members of the well-renowned Polish death metal factory, having been going since 1990. Looking at their line-up, the drummer seems to have played with everyone, which is typical of the Polish scene. “Tremendum” is Hate’s tenth album release,.. Read More
Azarath – In Extremis (Agonia Records)

Azarath – In Extremis (Agonia Records)

Polish extreme metallers Azarath have been around for nearly 20 years and during that time the band has released five full lengths but it is six years since “Blasphemers’ Maledictions” which had a clinical yet assailing set of songs that were firmly entrenched in the.. Read More
Medico Peste – Herzogian Darkness (W.T.C. Productions)

Medico Peste – Herzogian Darkness (W.T.C. Productions)

This form of pestilential darkness comes to us via Poland and a calibre of musicians who have been involved past and present, on and off stage with the likes of Old Woods Grave, Mgla, Clandestine Blaze and Mord A’Stigmata. Speaking of Stigmata there’s a cover.. Read More
Me And That Man - Songs Of Love And Death (Cooking Vinyl)

Me And That Man – Songs Of Love And Death (Cooking Vinyl)

Here’s a thing and a half. I mean the name of the group is only a little curious whereas the album title is a bit underwhelming and maybe the third or fourth one in my collection with that exact title. Then you notice that this.. Read More
Disperse – Foreword (Season of Mist)

Disperse – Foreword (Season of Mist)

I know people who sing the praises of Polish progressive metal band Disperse. My own experience of them, which amounts to listening to one of their two previous albums “Living Mirrors” (2013) and a live performance, has been one of slight disappointment, caused by the.. Read More
Cultes Des Ghoules – Coven, or Evil Ways Instead Of Love (Hells Headbangers)

Cultes Des Ghoules – Coven, or Evil Ways Instead Of Love (Hells Headbangers)

Slithering and oozing out of Poland circa 2004, the strange and sinister Cultes Des Ghoules impressed with their first two albums Häxan (2008) and Henbane (2013). The latter was described as “dramatic horror fuelled black metal from a band who really like long songs.” Well.. Read More
Mord A Stigmata – Hope (Pagan)

Mord A Stigmata – Hope (Pagan)

Mord A Stigmata are another of those bands from the seemingly endless Polish factory of black metal. Around since 2004, “Hope” is their fourth full album release. “Hope” is not an all-out assault. It is steady, creepy even with a progression, which erodes at the.. Read More
