Karg – Traktat (Art Of Propaganda)

Karg is an excellent name for a band, especially for a black metal band from Austria. The word “karg” is German and it is old, something that you can simultaneously hear and see. Karg, when referred to a landscape, means… Continue Reading →

Sons of a Wanted Man – Kenoma (LADLO)

This is the debut album by Sons of a Wanted Man from Belgium, who have been around as a band for around 5 or 6 years. Reading their résumé, and finding out who their preferred artists are – always helpful,… Continue Reading →

Sylvaine & Unreqvited – Time Without End (Prophecy Productions)

On the one hand, this is an unlikely pairing, but on the other it makes perfect sense and I know this is a bold statement but I don’t recall a split release ever being this coherent or synergistic. ‘Time Without… Continue Reading →

Mur – Brutalism (LADLO)

From the admirable Les Acteurs de l’Ombre label come the band Mur. This is the band’s second album. It is described as “an album with a hardcore organic atmosphere tinted with rough and dynamic post-black metal”. The opener and evocatively… Continue Reading →

White Ward – Love Exchange Failure (Debemur Morti)

“White Ward perform intensely deviant music of a noir shade”, I read. From Odessa in Ukraine, they have been doing their post black metal thing since 2012, have released a couple of EP’s and are now releasing their second album…. Continue Reading →

Sertraline – From Both Our Hands (Hypnotic Dirge)

First of all, for clarification this is Sertraline from the cold climes of Buffalo, USA, not the north of England one. Second, my enquiries took me to an anti-depressant of the same name. This Sertraline, whose second EP this is… Continue Reading →

Chrome Waves – A Grief Observed (AvantGarde Music)

All too often we approach new music with preconceived ideas either from previous encounters with a band, media hype or a press release. However, on this occasion I listened to Chrome Waves with absolutely no knowledge of the band and… Continue Reading →

Knoest – Dag (Van)

This is a tough one. Even after listening to Knoest’s debut album Dag at least a dozen times, I’m still not sure what to think of it. Knoest play black metal and blackened post metal (and rather a garden variety… Continue Reading →

Numenorean – Adore (Season Of Mist)

Numenoreans are folk of Numenroea – an island in Middle Earth where lived the greatest of men. Yup more Tolkien in metal.  Here though Numenorean are a post (ish) Black Metal band from Calgary. Their debut “Home” in 2016 was a collection… Continue Reading →

Joyless Euphoria – Dreaming In Ultraviolet (Boersma Records)

As broad a genre as Metal is each and every new avenue explored is often met with ridicule and disgust, it really is a wonder how we have come to have so many genres today. Speaking of modern times this… Continue Reading →

Downfall of Gaia – Ethic of Radical Finitude (Metal Blade)

Downfall of Gaia’s towering tremolo-soaked excursions should be enough to drown even the hardest of hearts in the band’s emotional vortex. The mix of post-black metal and cascading, sludgy breakdowns provide an excursion that feels both familiar and intriguingly unique… Continue Reading →

Agrypnie – Grenzænger / Pavor Nocturnus (Supreme Chaos Records)

The term Post in music, for example Post-Punk, has developed greatly over the years. It’s a strange genre to try and describe but if you know, you know. Think of Post as an often dystopian, modernist or perhaps even experimental… Continue Reading →
