The Joy Thieves – A Blue Girl (Armalyte)

I am not even going to try and tag all the rag bag members of this industrial troupe as it would be a ridiculously huge list. Suffice to say that the cast brings to mind the revolving door policy of… Continue Reading →

[Dolch] – Feuer (Van)

Still keeping up an air of anonymity in the Internet age, which is something increasingly difficult to do, you won’t find a huge amount of information about the players in German act [Dolch]. Their first couple of releases came from… Continue Reading →

Weathered Statues – Borderlands (Svart)

I suppose there isn’t much that shows the effect of the tooth of time so well like statues exposed to the elements. Although they are usually made from durable materials like marble, bronze or cement, time, wind and weather will… Continue Reading →

Norilsk- Le Passage des glaciers (Hypnotic Dirge)

French Canadian Duo Norilsk have followed 2015’s “The Idea of North” with 8 slabs of doom death by the name of “Le Passage des Glaciers”  Norilsk is the most northern city in Siberia and allegedly home to a heavy metal… Continue Reading →

Samael – Hegemony (Napalm)

Leadership and dominance, well that is something Samael know all about having been worshipped from the early days with their unique and devout take on blackened metal. Forerunners of the scene they have been around since way back in 1987… Continue Reading →

Chelsea Wolfe – Hiss Spun (Sargent House)

There’s something about Chelsea. Something strange, sinister and utterly beguiling, something that makes you easily envisage her singing a dark ode at the end scenes in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks bar room. It’s a place where her haunting tones would… Continue Reading →

Ursinne – Swim With The Leviathan (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Blimey, another belter from Transcending Obscurity Records here with the debut album from Ursinne. Right, for starters what’s an “Ursinne” and what’s this band all about? Well for starters “Ursinne” is a Swedish word for “rage” and the band is… Continue Reading →

Ides of Gemini – Women (Rise Above)

The follow up to 2014’s ‘Old World New Wave’ sees many changes in the Ides of Gemini camp. The trio are now a four-piece – with vocalist Sera Timms and guitarist Jason Bennett now joined by drummer Scott Batiste (of… Continue Reading →

Todtgelichter – Rooms (Supreme Chaos Records)

Was 2013’s “Apnoe” a step too far for Todtgelichter? It was quite a departure from their early stuff but three years and a couple of new members later it seems the band have had a little bit of a re-think…. Continue Reading →

Cold In Berlin – The Comfort Of Loss And Dust (Candlelight)

After hearing and enjoying two albums by Cold In Berlin it was particularly interesting filling in the gaps and seeing the band live for the first time when they played the Candlefest last year. Cast somewhat adrift amidst bands more… Continue Reading →

Hateful Abandon – Liars / Bastards (Candlelight)

With a name like Hateful Abandon you could expect this lot to be some sort of doom death conglomeration but they are not as I found out picking up their interesting looking last release 2011 album ‘Move’ on the cheap… Continue Reading →

Jex Thoth – Blood Moon Rise (I Hate)

Having been following these occult, mystical doomsayers since they appeared as Totem with their self-named EP in 2007 I grabbed claim on this album the second it arrived. Things have been pretty quiet with them since the release of last… Continue Reading →
