Empyreal Vault – S/T (Great Dane Records)

If you had told me a couple or three years ago that Deathcore would see a resurgence and on top of that become palatable I would have laughed in your face. Yet here we are, a new age of Deathcore… Continue Reading →

Magic Pie – Fragments of the 5th Element (Karisma Records)

As a clearly intelligent and discerning individual, a judgment made based on the fact that you are reading Ave Noctum out of all the sites out there in internet land, you are doubtless aware of the wide spectrum of music… Continue Reading →

Lord Dying – Mysterium Tremendum (eOne)

Portland, Oregon. It seems as if one in every three new doom albums from the USA hail from this location. In fairness to Lord Dying, they’ve been going since 2010, so at the very least have some proper heritage to… Continue Reading →

Lonely Robot – Under Stars (InsideOut)

For the second time this quiet little traveller dares the dark harbour of Ave Noctum; lost perhaps but so welcome. Needed even. So once more I paddle my little canoe out into that sea marked on my map as Out… Continue Reading →

PoiL – Sus (Dur et Doux)

If you’re looking for normality, this is not the place to come. When I read that inspiration came from “Stockhausen Stimmung on a mushroom trip”, I knew it was game on. “Sus” is a lot of bizarre sounds, fundamentally. The… Continue Reading →

Interview – Tom de Wit (Dreamwalkers Inc, Layered Reality Productions)

Tom de Wit is a busy man. From Amersfoort in the Netherlands, he owns up to “making stuff and doing things” in the field of music, words, audio, video and web design. Progman Tom’s main musical project is Dreamwalkers Inc… Continue Reading →

Green Lung – Woodland Rites (Kozmik Artifactz)

There now appear to be as many retro minded occult rock bands using Hammer Horror samples as there were films made by those masters of the macabre.  South London’s Green Lung are coughing up their debut Woodland Rites on the date… Continue Reading →

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 →

Mörglbl – The Tale Of Scott Rötti (Lasers Edge)

Mörglbl are a rather interesting musical entity. The predominantly instrumental three piece are heavily rooted in the realms of progressive metal, and from there, they add plenty of jazz and fusion elements to their sound, giving an end result which… Continue Reading →

Yarn Of The Wicked – Lore * Anne (Pagan Records)

I absolutely had to review this before hearing a single note as this Polish band featuring members of Sauron and Misanthropic Rage have conceptually tackled a subject very close to my heart. Lore Fournier and Anne de Boissy are two… Continue Reading →

Them – Manor Of the Se7en Gables (SPV)

Trans-Atlantic Power/Thrash outfit Them have returned once more, bringing with them another host of supernaturally inclined songs detailing the continued trials of the warlock K.K Fossor. 2016’s ‘Sweet Hollow’ began this tormented tale and it continues on at the Manor… Continue Reading →

DRH – Thin Ice (Apathia Records)

“Follow the white rabbit”, we’re told. Well, maybe we should but for sure we’re taken on a journey through a strange Wonderland here on this experimental saxophone-driven jazz prog collection from French quartet DRH. Sometimes it’s good not to have… Continue Reading →
