Susperia – The Lyricist (Agonia Records)

Susperia are back and they have commandeered the vocal talents of Bernt ‘Dagon’ Fjellestad to help deliver this latest offering ‘The Lyricist’ The origins of Susperia date back to 1988 when the then drummer with Dimmu Borgir, Tjodalv, got together… Continue Reading →

The Wakedead Gathering / Ecferus – Split (I, Voidhanger)

A relatively short release, this, being as it is a four track EP coming from those lovers of all things eclectic, I, Voidhanger records. In fairness, both acts are one-man outfits. Featured here is the dark and wilfully obscure death… Continue Reading →

Sarke – Viige Urh (Indie)

In 2016 Sarke released Bogefod a concept album built around a millennia old Viking legend involving a zombie king. It was as fantastic as it sounds. So now Noctruno Culto, Sarke, Anders Hunstad, Asgeir Mickelson and Steinar Gundersen are back… Continue Reading →

Satyricon – Deep calleth upon Deep (Napalm)

Satyricon have returned from a night at the opera, armed with a record that sounds…well, to these ears anyway…quite similar to the last few. Great news if you enjoyed ‘Now, Diabolical’ and ‘Age of Nero’ but not so good if… Continue Reading →

Mavradoxa – Lethean Lament (Hypnotic Dirge Records)

‘Lethean Lament’ is the second album from New York-based atmospheric black metal duo Mavradoxa, and just like the excellent ‘Reclaim The Darkness’ album from Australian band King last year, it’s a massive slab of nature-obsessed majesty. Surprising and dynamic, Lux… Continue Reading →

Gravdal – Kadaverin (Soulseller Records)

Just the mention of Norwegian black metal sends shivers down the spine, and in many respects Gravdal’s third album has many of the classic aspects – withering, spiteful riffs, and a cold and lingeringly deathly air. The title track opens… Continue Reading →

Darkenhöld – Memoria Sylvarum (SR)

It’s been 3 years since we last heard from French medievalist troupe Darkenhold and no doubt they have been holed up in their castle walls constructing their newest opus and fourth full length album. It’s immediately striking too when you… Continue Reading →

Nargaroth – Era Of Threnody (Inter Arma Productions)

Germany’s Nargaroth should need no introduction to any black metal fan as the band headed up by Ash whose creative genius has given the black metal community some truly spectacular releases since the bands inception in the mid-1990s. It is… Continue Reading →

Ancient Ascendant – Raise The Torch (Candlelight Records)

Possibly one of the UK’s premier extreme metal acts Ancient Ascendant has been steadily unleashing quality releases for nearly a decade. The bands last album, “Echoes And Cinder” had a slight experimental feathering with beautifully poised acoustic passages blending with… Continue Reading →

Endezzma – The Arcane Abyss (Pulverised)

Pure Norwegian devil worship here! Endezzma was borne to rotten life by Trondr Nefas of Urgehal (R.I.P) along with Morten Shax. There’s been line-up changes aplenty but somehow the band have managed to soldier on and principally includes live members… Continue Reading →

Mrome – Noetic Collision On The Roof Of Hell (S/R)

Apart from a Bandcamp page there is little in the way of Internet presence about this Polish group but a bit of digging shows that they were formerly known as Kingdom and existed between 1995 and 2002. They never got… Continue Reading →

Underling – Breathe Deeply / Bloodworship (Neuropa Records)

Californian atmospheric black metal band Underling have recently signed to Neuropa records, giving us a chance to catch up with two great releases, 2013’s ‘Breathe Deeply’ and 2015’s ‘Bloodworship’, both re-issued in glorious digipack form. Playing with a potent mix… Continue Reading →
