Season Of Mist

Wormed – Metaportal (Season Of Mist)

Technical Death Metal has a strange history some love it, others hate it. It’s early days were steeped in impressive musicianship which left a lot of people bewildered, the likes of Atheist, Cynic and Death being among the biggest driving… Continue Reading →

Abbath – Outstrider (Season Of Mist)

As a long-time fan of Immortal I am starting to feel like the tug of love corpse painted child. The parents can no longer see eye to eye and are dropping us kids off at a Toby Carvery to be… Continue Reading →

Heilung – Futha (Season Of Mist)

Neofolk, the label most frequently attached to Heilung, doesn’t even come close to describing what the band are doing. Amplified history, the term they came up with themselves to define their art, is more fitting and actually pretty precise, but… Continue Reading →

This Gift Is A Curse – A Throne of Ash (Season of Mist)

There’s something rather nasty about this latest offering from Stockholm based blackened sludge metallers This Gift Is A Curse, it’s ominous, filled with dread at every turn, but it’s all the better for it.  A Throne of Ash, their third… Continue Reading →

Enthroned – Cold Black Suns (Season Of Mist)

Despite the fact that the infamous Norwegian Black Metal scene ‘had nothing to do with Satanism’ (as Varg puts it) it is impossible to ignore the fact that the media hyped the story with notions of devil worship. Due to… Continue Reading →

Gaahls WYRD – GastiR – Ghosts Invited (Season of Mist)

Gaahl is synonymous with black metal and is a true uber behemoth of the world, a demi god, if you will, of the genre and any new work by the master is welcomed with open arms. Gaahls Wyrd has been… Continue Reading →

Saint Vitus – Saint Vitus (Season Of Mist)

Doom, pretty much where it all started. I’m not just talking about Black Sabbath I’m talking about a whole host of Proto-Metal bands, Blue Cheer, Vanilla Fudge, Iron Butterfly these bands utilised the essence of mass distortion. This very facet… Continue Reading →

Lice – Woe Betide You (Season Of Mist)

Black Metal has a way of worming its way into all manner of other subgenres, almost unlike any other Metal subgenre. I’ve seen Blackened Hardcore, Black Noise, Blackgaze Post-Black Metal the list is frankly endless. I think in part this… Continue Reading →

Numenorean – Adore (Season Of Mist)

Numenoreans are folk of Numenroea – an island in Middle Earth where lived the greatest of men. Yup more Tolkien in metal.  Here though Numenorean are a post (ish) Black Metal band from Calgary. Their debut “Home” in 2016 was a collection… Continue Reading →

Drudkh – A Few Lines in Archaic Ukrainian (Season of Mist)

Let’s be clear from the outset, this is not a “new” Drudkh album,  rather it is a compendium of Ukrainian black metal poetry pieces which have previously been released across three split EPs. As such, the material will probably be… Continue Reading →

Vltimas – Something Wicked Marches In (Season Of Mist)

Supergroups are a funny thing, I always feel like they go either one of two ways. Either they are a positive collaboration of talented individuals or they are a somewhat manufactured ensemble thrust unwillingly upon the world. I think this… Continue Reading →

Misery Index – Rituals Of Power (Season Of Mist)

Grindcore, the ultimate amalgamation of both Metal and Punk. Spawned from a time when Thrash was becoming more accepted by Punks and the likes of Discharge and Crass were becoming more tolerated by Metalheads. For this reason Grindcore to me… Continue Reading →
