Trautonist – Ember (Wolves And Vibrancy Records / Pest Productions)

Trautonist – Ember (Wolves And Vibrancy Records / Pest Productions)

Very rarely do I get an actual vinyl to review these days as Trautonist has seen fit to send their second album as a vinyl copy, and a gold vinyl at that too. The German trio has a self-titled debut that was a solid post-black.. Read More
Hyrgal – Serpentine (Ladlo Productions)

Hyrgal – Serpentine (Ladlo Productions)

Having been around for ten years this French act has released only one split during that time and within their ranks they have an ex-member of Svart Crown, namely Clément Flandrois who does vocals and guitar on this, the band’s debut full length. An elongated.. Read More
Antlers – Beneath.Below.Behold (Totenmusik/Ván Records)

Antlers – Beneath.Below.Behold (Totenmusik/Ván Records)

When Deafheaven released its masterpiece “Sunbather” in 2013, it created a rift in the black metal scene. On one side, there were those who dismissed this new wave as not being black metal at all, while on the other side an increasing amount of artists.. Read More
Coldawn - …. In The Dawn (Flowing Downward)

Coldawn – …. In The Dawn (Flowing Downward)

What’s 17,000 km between artistic collaborators in this Internet age? Obviously not a huge amount as the principle artists in this outfit come from Australia and Venezuela. All instruments here are provided by a young Antipodean Brendon Sibraa who has no shortage of other projects.. Read More
Lumnos - Ancient Shadows Of Saturn (Flowing Downward)

Lumnos – Ancient Shadows Of Saturn (Flowing Downward)

This is The first physical release by Brazilian musician Putrefactus after a few digital only ones and as the title suggests this is very much of the cosmic black metal variety. Even from the opening note, there is a huge wave of Midnight Odyssey pushing.. Read More
Devlsy – Private Suite (ATMF)

Devlsy – Private Suite (ATMF)

Deep, reverberating sounds of a post black metal kind and a vocalist who sounds like he’s on his last legs … this is Devlsy from a sinister and depressive sounding place. As I got into “Corridors”, the first track of the band’s follow up to.. Read More
Heir – Au Peuple de l’Abîme (LADLO Productions)

Heir – Au Peuple de l’Abîme (LADLO Productions)

French black metal has a good pedigree. Here’s another band, Heir, from Toulouse, who deliver “disillusioned post-black metal, dark, either fast or heavy, sometimes bright, but always dedicated to an atmosphere of contemplation or desolation”. Their CV so far comprises an EP and a split,.. Read More
Fen – Winter (Code666)

Fen – Winter (Code666)

After what seems like an eternity, but in actuality three years, Fen have returned with the successor to their 2014 full length release “Carrion Skies”, with the magnificent opus that is “Winter”. I’ve been a fan of Fen for a very long time, and throughout.. Read More
Départe – Failure, Subside (Season Of Mist)

Départe – Failure, Subside (Season Of Mist)

Tasmania, somewhat cut off from the rest of the world and with no shortage of angry and extreme musicians it would seem. There definitely seems to be a bit of an underground scene there and it never surprises me when something new turns up as.. Read More
Phantom Winter – Sundown Pleasures (Golden Antenna)

Phantom Winter – Sundown Pleasures (Golden Antenna)

Despite having another album called Cvlt and assuming many of the trappings of a black metal band, the first useful thing I can say about Phantom Winter is that they’re not black metal. Well, not entirely true, but not in any predictable way. The band’s.. Read More
Crowhurst – II (Broken Limbs)

Crowhurst – II (Broken Limbs)

To me, the name Crowhurst has the aura of a sinister-sounding public school. In fact this band from Los Angeles specialise in experimental black industrial noise. Their lead member has been likened to a 70’s Miles Davis, which as an observation was lost on me,.. Read More
Sun Worship – Pale Dawn (Golden Antenna)

Sun Worship – Pale Dawn (Golden Antenna)

Corpse paint ‘obsolete’? A ‘parody of itself’? Get thee hence Sun Worship, wash your mouth out with maggots and take your heresy with you…. Er, actually hold on. This is pretty good. Very good actually. So you don’t need to be whited-up ghoul-style to play.. Read More
