Revenge – Strike.Smother.Dehumanize (Season Of Mist)

I have been left indifferent to this Canadian war metallers discography previously, their unique brand of cacophonic assaults often came across as repetitive and lacking ingenuity but all that changed when I saw the band for the first time at… Continue Reading →

Green Carnation – Leaves Of Yesteryear (Season Of Mist)

It was a sad day back in 2007 when Norwegian Metal band Green Carnation decided to call it a day. No-one before or since has ever truly captured their progressive avant-garde dark metal style in the same way, yet bowing… Continue Reading →

and Oceans – Cosmic World Mother (Season of Mist)

…and Oceans have always been an interesting band, transforming their sound from symphonic black metal to a more electronic industrialised style. When I saw this, it occurred to me that I hadn’t heard of them for ages. There was an… Continue Reading →

HELFRÓ – Helfró (Season of Mist)

In recent years, Iceland has become a veritable cauldron of seething black metal, reliably spewing forth some of the most claustrophobic and vicious bands around. The latest of these is Helfró, whose eponymous debut launches straight into the uncompromising ‘Afeitrun’…. Continue Reading →

Barishi – Old Smoke (Season of Mist)

Old Smoke makes me think of Texas barbeques. Right country, wrong place. Progressive metal band Barishi are from New England. The band’s 2016 album “Blood from the Lion’s Mouth” was impressive and made my top 20 for the year on… Continue Reading →

Abysmal Dawn – Phylogenesis (Season Of Mist)

My first experience of this US death metal band was a reissue of “From Ashes” in 2012 which was originally released in 2006. Since that time the band has released a further three albums containing their own blend of melodic… Continue Reading →

Benighted – Obscene Repressed (Season Of Mist)

Hyborian – Volume II (Season of Mist)

It’s been three years since Mastodon released the magnificent Emperor of Sand, and with an almost flawless back catalogue it was with some intrigue that I listened to this, their eighth studio album…  Hang on a minute…  Are you telling… Continue Reading →

Medico Peste – The Black Bile (Season of Mist)

This particular piece of black bile comes from Poland courtesy of Medico Peste, who have trading their brand of so-called schizophrenic black metal since 2010. This is not black metal of a vanilla nature, as people say nowadays. It’s grey… Continue Reading →

Earth Rot – Black Tides of Obscurity (Season of Mist)

Earth Rot have been doing their black metal thing since 2013, since when they’ve released two eps and now three albums. Although they’ve never come into my life previously, it’s clear that they’ve put themselves about a bit, having toured… Continue Reading →

Regarde Les Hommes Tomber – Ascension (Season of Mist)

As time goes on, genre hybrids seem to grow more and more absurd, from the likes of post blackened hardcore to symphonic ambient drone, there’s no shortage of ridiculous sub-categories of music to scoff at. However, the label of blackened… Continue Reading →
