Istina – Revelation Of Unknown (S/R)

Or to give this it’s native title Истина – Откровение Неизвестности. Well I had a case of deja-vu when this turned up from Russia and did not have a clue what I had in front of me but on playing… Continue Reading →

Aborted Fetus – The Ancient Spirits Of Decay (Comatose Music)

Brutal Death Metal, I love it so very much. To me its very existence is spawned from extremity a means of gaining a leg up over each and every predecessor to be something more brutal, fast, vile, shocking and horrific…. Continue Reading →

Tantal – Ruin (Mazzar Records)

So this new Tantal album came my way and as I always like to do before I embark on a review, I read what the label/promotions agency have to say about the band. What instantly intrigued (and amused) me about… Continue Reading →

Estate – Mirrorland (Mighty Music)

Russian Symphonic Melodic Metal band Estate have had a bit of a re-assess in the past 4 years. “Fantasia” was a more than credible Symphonic/Melodic/Power Metal debut, relying as it did on good tunes and memorable melodies, but possibly lacking… Continue Reading →

Darkeater – Что помнит лес (Wolfspell Records)

Is – Into My Own (Wolfspell Records)

This is the sophomore release by one-man band Is featuring Nøkken on all instruments and vocals. Formed only 3 years ago he has already released numerous EPs and singles with the cold and frost appearing to be his main thematic… Continue Reading →

Smothered Bowels – Dead Cunt Dance (Bizarre Leprous Production)

It’s time to get that politically correct handbook, rip the pages out of it and wipe your bum on them. Yep these Russian grinders are about being offensive and acting like very rude and naughty school-kids so be warned if… Continue Reading →

Blazing Rust – Armed to Exist (Pure Steel)

Russia’s Blazing Rust was a find made possible by the “Masters of Metal” series of releases that have come out recently, in particular Volume 2 that came with Warlok, Carriage and Oath of Woe. This is traditional heavy metal, done… Continue Reading →

Selcouth – Heart Is The Star of Chaos (I, Voidhanger Records)

Selcouth apparently is an adjective, which means strange, unusual and wondrous. The band, which is a collective of musicians from Finland, France, Spain, Russia and Argentina, most certainly got their name right. What I sensed here was an avant-garde artistic… Continue Reading →

Eoront – Another Realm (Code 666)

The whole concept of this intrigued me. Eoront is an atmospheric black metal project from Siberia. This is their third album. Nature pours through the opening track “The Rain”. The drops of water can be heard and there is a… Continue Reading →
