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 →

An Autumn for Crippled Children – The Light of September (ConSouling Sounds)

Well, I suppose there’s not much that’s more depressing than suffering children. Especially, when the suffering is of a kind that cannot be traced back to anyone’s wrong choices. Children that are born with some kind of genetic defect, that… Continue Reading →

Sylvaine – Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone (Season of Mist)

Even the most gnarly metal fan needs an occasional break from relentless aural pummelling and as I get a little older I have found myself exploring some of these avenues with increasing frequency. Norwegian multi-instrumentalist Sylvaine first came to my… Continue Reading →

Bonjour Tristesse – Your Ultimate Urban Nightmare (Lifeforce)

Bonjour Tristesse, originally, is a popular novel by Francoise Sagan published in 1954. I read it a long time ago and didn’t like it much. Too melodramatic. I could be mistaken of course, but I don’t think the German one-man… Continue Reading →

Hegemone – We Disappear (Debemur Morti)

While the wider metal scene is much more inclusive than for example the hardcore or the punk scene when it comes to bands from outside the US or the UK, bands from Eastern and South-Eastern Europe are still not getting… Continue Reading →

Deadly Carnage – Through The Void, Above The Suns ( A Sad Sadness Song)

I have reviewed this Italian bands last two full lengths the last one of which was released in 2014. The band has been relatively quiet since then with only a two track EP called “Chasm” showing up in 2016 that… Continue Reading →
