Taina - Seelenfresser (Viy Records)

Taina – Seelenfresser (Viy Records)

There is a train of thought that suggests that Germans are incredibly efficient. Taina clearly missed that meeting, as it’s taken roughly 8 years to release their debut album. Formed in 2010 by vocalist/synth player WoLand and guitarist SerZh the band have gone through numerous.. Read More
Avatar – Avatar Country (Century Media)

Avatar – Avatar Country (Century Media)

Gothenburg’s Avatar describe themselves as “a dark, twisted circus sideshow that’s built around bombastically grooving melodic death n’ roll”. Now on their seventh album with a multitude of singles, a live pedigree and a larger than life persona, this album promised to be a bit.. Read More
Porn – The Ogre Inside (Les Disques Rubicon)

Porn – The Ogre Inside (Les Disques Rubicon)

Apparently, French industrial/goth metalers Porn, are named after the album ‘Pornography’ by The Cure. While I find that a little hard to believe, you’ll be pleased to know that their sound is every bit as filthy as the sort of stuff that you used to.. Read More
Gothminister – The Other Side (AFM)

Gothminister – The Other Side (AFM)

The term “gothic” seems to have a particular meaning in Germany. My experience of rummaging around record stores there is that everything, including Opeth, counts as gothic. From the self-explanatory “Gothic Electronic Anthems” (2003) onwards, Gothminister have been pumping out dark electro metal. This one.. Read More
Samael – Hegemony (Napalm)

Samael – Hegemony (Napalm)

Leadership and dominance, well that is something Samael know all about having been worshipped from the early days with their unique and devout take on blackened metal. Forerunners of the scene they have been around since way back in 1987 and their journey has been.. Read More
Die Apokalyptischen Reiter – Die Rote Reiter - Nuclear Blast

Die Apokalyptischen Reiter – Die Rote Reiter – Nuclear Blast

Three years have passed since Die Apokalyptischen Reiter released their rather tremendous double album, ‘Tief. Tiefer’, and 2017 sees the long anticipated follow up ‘Die Rote Reiter’, ‘The Red Rider’, and no, it’s not some harbinger of doom from A Game of Thrones, rather a.. Read More
Fjoergyn – Lvcifer Es (Lifeforce)

Fjoergyn – Lvcifer Es (Lifeforce)

Perhaps it’s just the subject matter – Lucifer in all his deceitful guises – but things with Fjoergyn have definitely taken a more aggressive and unexpected turn. These guys have always been known for their avant-garde take on black metal and with a melodic twist... Read More
Mystons – Destination Death (V.R. Label)

Mystons – Destination Death (V.R. Label)

Not to be confused with the things out of ‘Captain Scarlet’, this is Finnish duo Mystons, sailing into view with their fifth album ‘Destination Death’. Recorded mostly live with minimal overdubs, drummer John Myston and vocalist/guitarist Mauri Myston have crafted a doomy and fuzzy delight,.. Read More
Pain – Coming Home (Nuclear Blast)

Pain – Coming Home (Nuclear Blast)

A lot of metal fans are a quite dismissive of Pain. I’ve heard Peter Tägtgren’s (pretty much) one man band as ‘cheesy industrial electro-rock’, a sort of ‘Rammstein-lite’ or ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Kovenant ’. Now if you’re one of those people then this.. Read More
Crematory – Monument (SPV)

Crematory – Monument (SPV)

It’s always a real treat when a Crematory album comes out, and there have been plenty of them over their 25 year journey. “Monument” is their twelfth, and while I have a great affection for “Revolution” (2004) in particular, I still had great excitement when.. Read More
Zardonic – Anti Hero (Eone Entertainment)

Zardonic – Anti Hero (Eone Entertainment)

You might find Zardonic in the “World” section of your local record outlet but it’s unlikely. Here’s US based Venezuelan keyboardist, DJ, composer, producer and remixer with a specialist field of heavy electronic dance music with a worldwide reputation and enthusiastic following in, amongst many..

Die Krupps – V Metal Machine Music (SPV)

Die Krupps – V Metal Machine Music (SPV)

Considering these Germans industrialists have been around since 1980, actual studio albums are quite a rare occurrence for them. Sure there have been stacks of releases such as singles, EP’s, compilations and anthologies such as the excellent 2007 Too Much History double which gave me.. Read More
