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 →

Pensees Nocturnes – Grand Guignol Orchestra (Ladlo Productions)

Envoyer les clowns, progenitors of black circus metal Pensees Nocturnes are back. Actually I just realised they snuck out an album in 2016 independently ‘À boire et à manger’ which I completely missed and it has been a long time… Continue Reading →

Infestus – Thrypsis (Debemur Morti)

I remember the second album ‘Chroniken des Ablebens’ from Infestus back a decade ago in 2008 but our paths do not seem to have crossed since then. The German outfit who have had various past members in their ranks now… Continue Reading →

Craft – White Noise And Black Metal (Season of Mist)

Vitriolic, malevolent, demonic and raw are all words which combine to provide us with this long awaited full-length release from these Swedish comrades of the black metal underworld. ‘White Noise And Black Metal’ is expelled onto us from this misanthropic… Continue Reading →

Deadly Carnage – Through The Void, Above The Suns ( A Sad Sadness Song)

I have reviewed this Italian bands last two full lengths the last one of which was released in 2014. The band has been relatively quiet since then with only a two track EP called “Chasm” showing up in 2016 that… Continue Reading →

Elixir Of Distress – Kontynent (Winterheart Music)

You won’t find a whole lot about Elixir Of Distress on the Internet and all I have to go with is a hand written note that came with the promo disc. Basically although the album recording session started in 2013… Continue Reading →

Shining – X – Varg Utan Flock (Season Of Mist)

The death throes of one shitty year of existence have barely stopped twitching and another one is just about ready to be shat into existence. Same hopelessness, misery, discontent and feelings of negativity and it seems almost perfect that greeting… Continue Reading →

Forgotten Tomb – We Owe You Nothing (Agonia)

A bit of Winter Depression from Italy’s finest miserablists, although it is fair to say they have gone down a bit more of a hateful route of late. Proving that there is a method to Forgotten Tomb’s madness ‘We Owe… Continue Reading →
