Skinweaver – Gratification Eternal (Great Dane Records)

Skinweaver – Gratification Eternal (Great Dane Records)

I’m a lucky bugger sometimes. “Send me anything you like” I said to the editor when the weekly review listings came out. I didn’t recognise any of the bands on it so wanted to absolve myself from any decision making (I’m a busy boy don’t.. Read More
RAM - Rod (Metal Blade)

RAM – Rod (Metal Blade)

All hail Ramrod the destroyer! Sweden’s RAM had a particularly favourable release in ‘Svbversvm’ on their last outing and have developed with each release since I discovered them on their debut EP. A partial concept album based on Ramrod the Destroyer, in part the first.. Read More
Cliteater - From Enslavement To Clitoration (War Anthem)

Cliteater – From Enslavement To Clitoration (War Anthem)

Anyone who has experienced the joys of this Dutch bands grindcore will know that all their albums have a play on the titles of well established releases such as their debut “Clit ‘Em All”or the last full length “Cliteaten Back To Life”. Fans of grindcore.. Read More
Resistance – The Seeds Within (Pavement)

Resistance – The Seeds Within (Pavement)

Formed in 2004 as a metal influenced hardcore band, the Belgians of Resistance have gradually morphed their music from that genre to more of an extreme metal realm. Five albums in now, ‘The Seeds Within’ is described by the band’s label as “more brutal, more.. Read More

Keitzer – The Last Defence (FDA Rekotz)

There used to be a time when bands attempted, to varying degrees of success, to be the most violent, pugnacious and fastest band on the planet. Back in the day albums were adorned with stickers staking claim to said pedestal in an attempt to win.. Read More
Ferocity – The Sovereign (Deepsend)

Ferocity – The Sovereign (Deepsend)

Denmark has had its fair share of death metal bands over the years, but none of which have really risen to the heights of their Swedish (or even Norwegian, in my opinion) brethren. OK, Invocator were great, as were Iniquity and Exmortem. Konkhra & Illdisposed.. Read More
Vulture Industries – The Tower (Season of Mist)

Vulture Industries – The Tower (Season of Mist)

I don’t know what Vulture Industries would think of being regarded as “the new Arcturus”. Whilst in some respects this is a compliment and there is a commonality in that they’re both from Norway, “The Tower” is Vulture Industries third album and for me they.. Read More
Nephren Ka - The Fall of Omnius (Kaotoxin)

Nephren Ka – The Fall of Omnius (Kaotoxin)

When someone said to me `Dune influenced death metal’ I leapt at the chance to give this a listen. Call me strange if you like, but I enjoy metal albums with overblown fantasy concepts. With a lavish sci-fi cover, and a seizure-inducing write up in.. Read More
Interview - Entrapment

Interview – Entrapment

Having just released his blistering debut album, Entrapment’s Michel Jonker kindly offered to talk to Ave Noctum about his band, its influences and the death metal genre in general. Based on the crazed lunatic evident on his album, ‘The Obscurity Within…’, one might have expected.. Read More
Offending – Age of Perversion (Deepsend Records)

Offending – Age of Perversion (Deepsend Records)

‘Age of Perversion’ is Offending’s second album, and exhibits a number of French musicians whose backgrounds are predominantly rooted in black metal. Coming from Deepsend though – the same label which recently introduced me to the enjoyable Deadly Remains – I was more than optimistic.. Read More
