Madmans Esprit – Nacht (ATMF)

We should be used to the weird and wonderful emerging from the Far East by now. But South Korea’s Madmans Esprit still manage to sound like they discovered the idea with a strange and beautiful blend of metal that exists… Continue Reading →

Krieg – Transient (Candlelight)

It’s coming up to two decades since USBM stalwarts Krieg started on a career which has seen some of the harshest black metal ever shat out the bowels of all that is unholy. Their 2002 release ‘Destruction Ritual’ was my… Continue Reading →

October File– The Application Of Loneliness, Ignorance, Misery, Love And Despair – An Introspective Of The Human Condition (Candlelight)

With a title that owes more to a university thesis than an album of music, October File make a welcome return with their first offering since 2010. As ever they remain difficult to pigeonhole when it comes to their musical… Continue Reading →

Killing Joke – In Dub (Killing Joke Records)

With Absolute Dissent and MMXII arriving in 2010 and 2012 respectively naturally fans of Killing Joke are keeping ears to the ground in the hope of news concerning a new 2014 studio album. We do however know that nothing should… Continue Reading →

Hounds – Begin Transmission 2 (S/R)

I caught Hounds opening for Killing Joke back in March 2013 and found their somewhat brash and pumping electro beats suitable entertainment before the main event. This EP turned up complete with a Killing Joke cover and a 3 disc… Continue Reading →

Riddarna – Under Jorden (Gaphals)

I have to feel somewhat sorry for the neighbours. They have only just recovered from me blatting out Alfahanne at rather loud volumes and now they have been subjected to Riddarna, no doubt driving them somewhat mad. Although musically both… Continue Reading →

Murmur – Murmur (Season of Mist/Underground Activists)

After plunging the depths with their raw, feedback-abusing, drone-heavy and, at times, utterly inaccessible debut album, “Mainlining The Lugubrious”, this Chicago quintet have pulled back their black metal curtains and allowed in a little more light for their sophomore self-titled….

Glittertind – Djevelsvart (Indie)

I find that one of the interesting things about the whole “Folk Metal” genre (and sub-genres thereof) is that each band has a slightly different take on it than their fellow acts. It’s a genre that you would think is… Continue Reading →

Vanhelga – Sommar (Art Of Propaganda)

I was first desecrated by Vanhelga about a year ago courtesy of their second full length album Höst. What really appealed to me was that their sound helped make the void created by the death of Jonas Bergqvist from Lifelover… Continue Reading →

Beastmilk – Climax (Svart)

Bands who are jumping on the coat tails of the gloomier sounds of the eighties seem to be in vogue at the moment. There are a lot of people who never lived through the times getting in a froth about… Continue Reading →

Jehovah Eyes – Sitcom Freedom / Living Dead Cities (Gaphals)

Another short but sweet slab of vinyl from Gaphals, this time from a Stockholm based band called Jehovah Eyes. There is very little info on them that I can find and their Facebook page only has a few posts on… Continue Reading →
