Season Of Mist

Rotting Christ – The Heretics (Season Of Mist)

What a great time to be a Rotting Christ fan. New book Non Serviam has provided a huge insight into the history of the Greek band who have simply gone from strength to strength over the last 3 decades plus…. Continue Reading →

Windswept – The Onlooker (Season Of Mist)

Despite my love for all things Drudkh flavoured, I must confess to not initially being overly enamoured with Windswepts debut album in 2017. The project was conceived by Roman Saenko and his Drudkh/ex-Hate Forest companions as a way of re-capturing… Continue Reading →

Altarage – The Approaching Roar (Season Of Mist)

Those strange nameless figures have emerged from their dungeon prisons to mount their skeletal steeds and gallop spreading terror across the lands of The Basque Country once more. Nope we are not talking about The Blind Dead although did you… Continue Reading →

Insanity alert – 666 Pack (Season Of Mist)

Party thrash. The antithesis of Straight Edge. Beer kegs. Steins. Dayglo toxic waste. Big brimmed caps and hi top trainers.  Music for drinking not thinking. Fans of Municipal Waste, Gama Bomb and F.K.U will love these Austrian fellas. The tracklisting is… Continue Reading →

Festerday – Iihtallan (Season Of Mist)

The world is full of bands who never see the light of day and equally full of bands who never get around to releasing a full length album. Some of these bands lay forgotten forever more, others become woven into… Continue Reading →

SepticFlesh, Inquisition & Stahlsarg – London Underworld 22/1/18

SepticFlesh do not exactly play the UK very often and with just the London date and Inquisition joining as co-headliners this was always going to be a busy one. It would have been very interesting to see Egyptian band Odious… Continue Reading →

Interview – Earth Electric (Rune Eriksen)

There’s a new power station lighting up the grid, designed to enlighten those into progressive metal and classic rock with its timeless sound. Those behind it are not such new names though as the band rose from the ashes of… Continue Reading →

Albums Of The Year 2014

  Pete Woods What a year as far as music was concerned, even if everything else is pretty much shit it is the tonic that keeps us going through it all and there has been no shortage of choice. It… Continue Reading →

Obsidian Kingdom – Mantiis (Season of Mist)

Originally self-released in 2012 ‘Mantiis’ is Obsidian Kingdom’s début. The original run of 500 copies sold out, so now Season of Mist is re-releasing it so more of us get to hear it before they release their second album which… Continue Reading →

Beyond Creation – Earthborn Evolution (Season Of Mist)

This Canadian band’s debut, “The Aura” hit me like a freight train when it hit my review pile in 2012 even though it had been released in 2011 by PRC Music. The version I had was a self released effort… Continue Reading →

Nightbringer – Ego Dominus Tuus (Season of Mist)

Nightbringer have produced an explosive piece of work here that is nothing short of electrifying at times. Gigantic riffs battling criss-crossing tremolo guitars, half a dozen different vocal styles and around 70 minutes of epic, occult-inspired black metal. On many… Continue Reading →

Interview – Imperium Dekadenz

In 2010 I latched onto German black metallers Imperium Dekadenz, a duo consisting of Horaz and Vespasian; a duo that writes complex, foreboding dark melancholic black metal music that whilst despondently doleful is equally uplifting taking the listener on a… Continue Reading →
