Ghostbound – All is Phantom (ATMF)

Ghostbound – All is Phantom (ATMF)

Originally conceived as a solo project by Brooklyn-based musician/actor (actor?) Alec Head to deliver themes of loss, grief and isolation via the medium of atmospheric black metal, Ghostbound has since expanded into a ‘full’ band and now presents the world with their debut full-length ‘All..

Decline Of The I – Escape (Agonia)

Decline Of The I – Escape (Agonia)

Concept albums love them or loathe them I think they are a brilliant staple in what I would consider to be a healthy musical diet. The reason being is that they perpetuate the ritual of listening to albums in full, whilst this impression is likely.. Read More
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
