Omgeving – Wijde Wijdte (Hypnotic Dirge)

Instrumental albums and artists used to really bug me, I can’t quite put my finger on why they just did. Perhaps it was the fact that I didn’t have much time or care for more progressive sounds, or maybe it… Continue Reading →

Furia, Au Dessus & Solleme – London Nambucca 6/12/18

Plenty of gigs on in town yet again tonight, heavyweight thrash titans Exodus with Sodom and Death Angel having a Headbangers Ball as well as memories being invoked by Clawfinger. It’s off down the Holloway Road for us black clad… Continue Reading →

Karg – Dornenvögel (AOP Records)

It’s been a busy year for the Austrian post-black metal scene. After a brilliant album by Harakiri for the Sky in February and a recent EP by Anomalie, now it’s Karg’s turn to unleash its misery upon the word. All… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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,… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
