Gloom – Rider Of The Last Light (Spread Evil Productions)

Including members of Nekrokrist SS (apparently not political) this is a debut and its country of origin couldn’t be in doubt. Beginning with a gunshot in ‘Bleed’ we are flung straight into a Finnish whirlwind of tumultuous riffing and that… Continue Reading →

Winterfylleth – The Reckoning Dawn (Candlelight / Spinefarm)

Firstly, I feel the need to apologise to Winterfylleth. This should have been written well before the release date but, as with most people at the moment circumstances conspired against me. I apologise because I’ve always considered it a rare… Continue Reading →

Wolvencrown – Of Bark And Ash (Avantgarde)

This one fell out into that shadow world of mid to late December but even having finally made their acquaintance in 2019 I wasn’t about to let Wolvencrown’s debut slip by uncommented. UKBM has so much to offer at the… Continue Reading →

Vargrav – Reign In Supreme Darkness (Werewolf Records)

As we move ever closer to the summer months I find my adoration for Black Metal and Blackened music dwindling. Essentially I am like a Metal tortoise, in the sun I flourish with the brighter more energetic tones of Death,… Continue Reading →

Sargeist – Unbound (World Terror Committee)

Things have been a bit turbulent for Finnish black metal cultists Sargeist. With only mastermind Shatraug left from the line up that recorded Feeding The Crawling Shadows in 2014, including long time collaborators Horns and Hoath Torog leaving, I was… Continue Reading →

Morketida – Panphage Mysticism (Werewolf Records)

Finnish black metal has been living in the shadow of its more illustrious Norwegian counterparts for many years, but make no mistake about it, the Finnish scene is thriving and has spawned some of the nastiest black metal on offer… Continue Reading →

Iku Turso – The Great Tower (Wolfspell)

I do like a band who do exactly what it says on the tin. “Smell of black metal 90-95” goes the instruction on Iku Turso’s debut and there it is in all its pungent glory. Seriously. This is an international… Continue Reading →

Desolate Shrine – Deliverance From The Godless Void (Dark Descent)

Anyone who has ever listened to this Finnish death metal act will know just how enveloping the music is, it is truly asphyxiating and even though I have not heard the debut the previous two albums are utterly terrifying as… Continue Reading →

Antzaat – The Black Hand Of The Father (Immortal Frost)

Antzaat are something of an Enigma with limited information available about them giving an air of mystery, further compounded by their promo photos with hoods up and faces obscured. However, what I do know is that this Belgian quartet have… Continue Reading →

Riivaus – Lyöden Taudein Ja Kirouksin (Wolfspell Records)

Finnish black metal is in a rude state of health at the moment with bands such as Horna, Sargeist, Archgoat, Baptism and several others all being on permanent rotation for me….. I will now be adding Riivaus to that list…. Continue Reading →

Doedsvangr – Satan Ov Suns (Immortal Frost Productions)

Tread carefully for we are about to enter the fields of death! Doedsvangr may well be a new name to us but the unholy triumvirate behind this cult are not. Lead singer of Nordjevel and Svartelder Doedadmiral, has collaborated with… Continue Reading →

IC Rex – Tulen Jumalat (Saturnal)

Maybe it’s Finland’s precarious position in the geopolitical landscape; maybe it’s the extreme latitude and near perpetual gloom at certain times of the year; or maybe it’s just the weather. Whatever it might be, there’s something that propels Finnish black… Continue Reading →
