Sertraline – These Mills Are Oceans (Hypnotic Dirge)

Citalopram, Venlafaxine, Sertraline, those little pills known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors make the bad old world that little bit more bearable for those of us that simply cannot cope with it. Helping with anxiety and depression and simply stopping… Continue Reading →

Ainsoph – Ω – V (Wolves Of Hades)

Not to be confused with the cult Italian industrial ambient outfit, this group are described as “shadowy wanderers’ from the Dutch underground. With a strong visual aesthetic looking at their promo pictures there is not much else to go on… Continue Reading →

Asphodèle – Jours Pâles (Ladlo Productions)

The flowers of Asphodèle may have only just bloomed but one look at the cast list of this brand-new French band was all I needed to grab the album and put it on my review pile. For a start we… Continue Reading →

Falaise – A Place I Don’t Belong To (A Sad Sadness Song)

Where’s the righteous rage paired with the credible threat of action gone from music? You know, the thing that hardcore had a claim on. Black metal, too, but in a different way. From today’s perspective, anyway, being anti-Christian seems pretty… Continue Reading →

An Autumn for Crippled Children – The Light of September (ConSouling Sounds)

Well, I suppose there’s not much that’s more depressing than suffering children. Especially, when the suffering is of a kind that cannot be traced back to anyone’s wrong choices. Children that are born with some kind of genetic defect, that… Continue Reading →

Ghostbound – All is Phantom (ATMF)

Originally conceived as a solo project by Brooklyn-based musician/actor (actor?) Alec Head to deliver themes of loss, grief and isolation via the medium of atmospheric black metal, Ghostbound has since expanded into a ‘full’ band and now presents the world… Continue Reading →

Coldawn – …. In The Dawn (Flowing Downward)

What’s 17,000 km between artistic collaborators in this Internet age? Obviously not a huge amount as the principle artists in this outfit come from Australia and Venezuela. All instruments here are provided by a young Antipodean Brendon Sibraa who has… Continue Reading →

Harakiri For The Sky – Arson (Art Of Propaganda)

Harakiri For The Sky are one of those rare bands that, if they didn’t exist, someone would need to invent them. The band, fast becoming an institution, is the perfect blend of finely distilled post-hardcore-post-black-metal that seems to fill a… Continue Reading →

Black Mare – Death Magick Mother (Magic Bullet)

Ides of Gemini’s Sera Timms takes her musical output from that of the voluminous and co-created to the hypnotic solo dissonance of Black Mare. ‘Death Magick Mother’ is the second album of this project, mixed by Drab Majesty’s Andrew Clinco…. Continue Reading →

Mindkult – Lucifer’s Dream (Transcending Obscurity)

“Doom, Stoner and Shoegaze” are the descriptions that accompany this album. I would add in a healthy dose of Garage Rock and Goth too. There is a distinct air of fuzz about the guitars that underpin this album with a… Continue Reading →

Impure Wilhelmina – Radiation (Season of Mist)

Well, these guys have come out of nowhere (after five previous albums, I must add) with a bit of a gem here for anyone who’s into the whole post-hardcore melancholy vibe and vocals powerful enough to cause a higher-level stratospheric… Continue Reading →
