Arx Atrata – The Path Untravelled (S/R)

This is a path I have travelled since it began back in 2013 with debut album Oblivion and continued 3 years later on Spiritus In Terra. The one thing that amazes me is the still self-released status of Arx Atrata,… Continue Reading →

Geistaz’ Ika – Trolddomsejd i Skovens Dybe Kedel (Signal Rex)

Once more I ride off into the lands where being so crushingly monolingual leaves me feeling utterly inadequate. On the plus side though, it means that this debut by Danish band Geistaz’ Ika really does have to speak to me… Continue Reading →

Saor – Forgotten Paths (Avantgarde)

You know I can’t remember the last time I was at a black or folk metal gig in the UK and I didn’t see at least one Saor patch or t-shirt being sported. Says a lot for the support these… Continue Reading →

Warhorns Festival – The Venue Selby 16-17/9/16 Day 2

Day 2 Day two of Warhorns dawned and my merry little band were still trying to figure out what the hell Whispered had been all about, but arrived with a pleasant number of others in time to catch first band… Continue Reading →

Fuath – I (Neuropa)

Scottish band Saor are a name I have seen about although I don’t appear to have had the pleasure of hearing their two albums or catching them live. Recording wise they are helmed by Andy Marshall who has prolifically been… Continue Reading →

Panopticon – Autumn Eternal (Bindrune/Nordvis)

The soundscape that is modern American metal has never sounded better, and it’s visionaries such as Austin Lunn that we have to thank for this. Less than a year since the masterpiece that was ‘Roads to the North’ was released… Continue Reading →

Barshasketh – Ophidian Henosis (Blut and Eisen Records)

I had heard and read good things about this New Zealand / Scottish band so my hopes were high. To be sure this album, which is basically seven hefty untitled chunks of black metal, carves out its own world and… Continue Reading →
