Au-Dessus – End of Chapter (Les Acteurs de l’Ombre)

Au-Dessus – End of Chapter (Les Acteurs de l’Ombre)

Lithuania’s Au-Dessus promise to “push the post black metal borders out” with this album. What I heard in the initial stages was something akin to Novembre, building up in ferocity and intensity. In fact “VI” – “I” to “V” are contained on the band’s debut.. Read More
Ultar – Kadath (Temple of Torturous)

Ultar – Kadath (Temple of Torturous)

Many bands have tried to propel themselves into the vast potential of post-black metal soundscapes. Many have failed – in fact most don’t even break free of the tried and tested formulas, which are now getting more than a little worn with overuse. The latest.. Read More
An Autumn For Crippled Children – Eternal (Wickerman Recordings)

An Autumn For Crippled Children – Eternal (Wickerman Recordings)

Reviewing this album is a Herculean task.  Wait don’t strop off muttering “bloody net reviews with their freebies moaning”!  This is no “ugh I have to put myself through THIS?!!” cry for pity. I really like this band. Well to say that is a bit.. Read More
Waldgeflüster - Ruinen (Nordvis)

Waldgeflüster – Ruinen (Nordvis)

If you’re looking for something lightweight and airy, this is not the place to look. From a black metal base, these forest whisperers from Germany have moved into shady and atmospheric territory here. “Weltenwanderer” (World Wanderer) is typical – dark, harsh, ferocious, leaden heavy, doomy..

Vukari – Divination (Bindrune)

Vukari – Divination (Bindrune)

Thankfully the old ways will always persist but it seems like ‘post-black metal’ is becoming more and more prolific these days. How do you differentiate between the two? Well for me it’s pretty easy as it is much less about orthodoxy, Satan, frost, fire and.. Read More
Numenorean – Home (Season of Mist)

Numenorean – Home (Season of Mist)

Numenorean is a post-black metal band from Canada. Reading that their music “embraces beauty, harshness, brutality, and melancholy in equal measure”, we are invited to draw comparison with Alcest and Deafheaven amongst others. Such description immediately made me think of Novembre. The title track, which.. Read More
Summit – Winds That Forestall Thy Return (I, Voidhanger)

Summit – Winds That Forestall Thy Return (I, Voidhanger)

Fans of last year’s impressive and angst-ridden Clearing Path album Watershed Between Earth And Firmament, will be no doubt looking forward to this one. Watershed… was a barrage of black metal-fed emotion and well worth checking out. However, Summit takes a different path and should.. Read More
Astronoid - Air (Blood Music)

Astronoid – Air (Blood Music)

This is the first full length album of self-proclaimed dream thrash-shoegaze metal from Astronoid out of the USA and follows two previously released EP’s. Thrash and shoegaze sound like an interesting combination. The band explain this away by referring to aggression and pop structures, and.. Read More
Soul Dissolution – Pale Distant Light (Throats Productions)

Soul Dissolution – Pale Distant Light (Throats Productions)

This light might be pale and somewhat bleak but it’s not without warm shades to go with it. Soul Dissolution play a form of melancholic post black metal and come from Belgium. They are a duo of Jabawock and Acharan who come from a background.. Read More
Terzij de Horde – Self (Consouling Sounds)

Terzij de Horde – Self (Consouling Sounds)

I caught this Dutch lot previously known as Liar Liar Cross On fire when they supported The Great Old Ones at the Unicorn at the beginning of 2013. At the time I found them a pretty hefty brew of black clad grimness and sludge laden.. Read More
Vattnet Viskar – Settler (Century Media)

Vattnet Viskar – Settler (Century Media)

Hailing from the American heartlands yet taking their name for the Swedish for “the water is whispering”, Vattnet Viskar have always been an innovative, multi-faceted band. On the one hand, their clear first love is for the more familial strains of second wave black metal.. Read More
Kontinuum – Kyrr (Candlelight)

Kontinuum – Kyrr (Candlelight)

It was no hardship to listen to Kontinuum’s 2012 album “Earth Blood Magic” again in preparation for this one. Rightly the Icelandic band’s contribution to “hypnotic and spiritual music noise” received universal claim. “Kyrr” is another album of intrigue, and not inconsiderable melody. It’s impossible..
