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

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 are crippled or, to use.. Read More
Sylvaine - Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone (Season of Mist)

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 attention a few years ago.. Read More
Bonjour Tristesse - Your Ultimate Urban Nightmare (Lifeforce)

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 black metal project with the.. Read More
Hegemone - We Disappear (Debemur Morti)

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 enough attention. That’s a shame,.. Read More
Deadly Carnage – Through The Void, Above The Suns ( A Sad Sadness Song)

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 continued the bands post black.. Read More
Harakiri For The Sky – Arson (Art Of Propaganda)

Harakiri For The Sky – Arson (Art Of Propaganda)

Harakiri For The Sky are one of those rare bands that, if they didn’t exist, someone would need to invent them. The band, fast becoming an institution, is the perfect blend of finely distilled post-hardcore-post-black-metal that seems to fill a huge space at the crossroads.. Read More
Seventh Genocide – Toward Akina (Third I Rex)

Seventh Genocide – Toward Akina (Third I Rex)

Black metal, more than any other genre, has produced some of the finest hybridisations of sub-genres resulting in some of the most intelligent, beguiling and intrinsically fascinating albums. I am very much of the school that the setting and mood is critical for listening to.. Read More
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
