Stillborn – Mirrormaze / Die In Torment 666 (Godz Ov War Productions)

Stillborn – Mirrormaze / Die In Torment 666 (Godz Ov War Productions)

Of the seven acts I found called Stillborn this version is from Poland and is one of the most prolific in terms of quantities of releases as they’ve seen fit to re-release their first two demos released in 1999 and 2001 respectively titled ‘Mirrormaze’ and.. Read More

Labyrinth Entrance – Monumental Bitterness (Godz Ov War)

Some albums thunder towards you like a line of fully-plated cavalry with armour and shining swords flashing in the blazing sun, while others prefer to sneak up on you from the shadows. Labyrinth Entrance – full marks for a great name – belongs to the.. Read More
Untervoid – S/T (Osmose Productions)

Untervoid – S/T (Osmose Productions)

The duo that comprises this Polish outfit are established members within the country’s extreme metal scene. Adam Sierżęga, aka A, and Konrad Ramotowski, aka Destroyer, have done their service in the underground via acts such as Azarath, Armagedon for the former and Kriegmaschine and Hate.. Read More
Absque Cor - Wędrówkę haniebnie zakończyć (Godz Ov War)

Absque Cor – Wędrówkę haniebnie zakończyć (Godz Ov War)

Pardon, you what? Yep metal often helps with learning about language and first up its Latin time and Absque Cor which translates I believe to ‘without heart.’ That’s a misnomer though as there is plenty of heart on display on the four tracks from this.. Read More
Deconstructing Sequence - Cosmic Progression: An Agonizing Journey Through Oddities of Space (S/R)

Deconstructing Sequence – Cosmic Progression: An Agonizing Journey Through Oddities of Space (S/R)

This is extreme progressive art, a combination of extreme metal, progressive, avant-garde and post rock music. Deconstructing Sequence fell out of the ashes of the black metal band Northwail. The title is grandiose. So is the energy-charged start which soars through the roof and sounds.. Read More
Thaw – Grains (Agonia Records)

Thaw – Grains (Agonia Records)

Polish quintet Thaw offer up 5 slabs of experimental Blackened noise with “Grains” the follow up to 2014’s “Earth Ground”.  If you can imagine the sonic equivalent to the polar ice caps melting  – a wall of freezing death oozing from a crack in an unforgiving blue.. Read More
Evilfeast – Elegies of the Stellar Wind (Eisenwald)

Evilfeast – Elegies of the Stellar Wind (Eisenwald)

Solo black metal projects tend to be more intense, I suppose because there’s no possibility of inter-human compromise. Evilfeast is no exception. This is the Polish misanthropist Grim Spirit’s fifth full album release. The expected properties are there: wind, cold, evil, rasping and haunting pagan.. Read More
Over The Voids… - ST (Nordvis)

Over The Voids… – ST (Nordvis)

Over The Voids… contains all the ingredients of a classic Nordvis release. Treble overload for full early-90s second wave salute? Check. Chunky, battering vocals that sound like an angry Yeti finally succumbing to the frostbite of an endless winter storm? Check. Frantic and fresh sub-blastbeat.. Read More
Blaze of Perdition – Conscious Darkness (Agonia)

Blaze of Perdition – Conscious Darkness (Agonia)

Blaze of Perdition really had a point to make with their last album, 2015’s ‘Near Death Revelations’. Coming off of the back of a terrible road accident in which one member was killed and two others injured, it was doubtless shaped – both conceptually and.. Read More
Devilish Impressions – The I (Lifeforce Records)

Devilish Impressions – The I (Lifeforce Records)

Luckily I’ve been following Devilish Impressions for long enough that I can ignore the publicity behind their fourth album release. Can somebody explain to me how “The I” is “a phonetic acronym of the band’s name”? Such contrived nonsense suggests that there’s nothing to say,.. Read More
Ars Magna Umbrae – Through Lunar Gateways (Hellthrasher)

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 Khthōn. It would appear from.. Read More
Brain Story – madeinside (S/R)

Brain Story – madeinside (S/R)

A Polish guy called Mariusz Kumala has created a progressive psychedelic rock project depicting musical space travel. “madeinside” is its latest incarnation. “madeinside” is indeed like a journey through the clouds. Echoing, synthesised voices, cosmic interventions and other wordliness are part of the adventure, notably.. Read More
