Taake / Whoredom Rife – Pakt (Terratur Possessions)

These two bands have signed a musical ‘pakt’ and have been fellow Norsemen entwined on their separate journeys for some time. Like Hoest, V. Einride is a multi-instrumentalist who composes all his group’s material although is joined by ex Bloodthorn… Continue Reading →

Then Comes Silence – Machine (SPV)

Nothing melts my frozen heart as much as the current resurgence of Post Punk sounds. (You say post punk I still like to say Goth). With bands like Beastmilk and Publicist UK coming out of the dry ice in the… Continue Reading →

Frozen Ocean / Heather Grave – Beyond Anemomautics (Spectral Halls)

Hurrah Vaarwel is back and not with just Frozen Ocean but a new project too on this split release. Last time we heard from him here it was with The Prowess Of Dormination at the beginning of 2016 but he… Continue Reading →

Alfahanne – Atomvinter (Indie Recordings)

Alfahanne are an anomaly. When the Swedes offered up their debut “Alfapokalyps” in 2014 interest was piqued due to the members being ex members of well respected black metal bands and the plethora of cult figures they brought in as… Continue Reading →

Cemetery Lights – The Underworld (Nuclear war Now!)

USBM from Rhode Island – Cemetery Lights have a penchant for the classics. I am not talking Mayhem and Darkthrone I mean ancient civilisations.  They released a debut cassette Lamuralia last year which focussed on Rome, this was followed by the… Continue Reading →

The 69 Eyes – West End (Nuclear Blast)

Happy birthday to The 69 Eyes. Thirty years apparently. I mean that’s pretty great going for anyone. It’s funny though that even though I’ve been aware of them for maybe two decades this is our first waltz. Well opening song… Continue Reading →

3Teeth – Metawar (Century Media)

If nothing else this album showed me how out of the loop I am, and not just with ‘industrial’. We’ll get to that in a while though. Righty. 3teeth are an LA industrial band currently touring with Ministry and just… Continue Reading →

A Pale Horse Named Death – When The World Becomes Undone (Long Branch Records)

Normally you would associate anything musical hailing from Brooklyn to be of the hardcore variety, but there is a darker, heavier and suffocating presence which lurks in the depths of it. Originally, this beast was Type O Negative, but since… Continue Reading →

Tor Marrock – The Concept Of Self (Black Vulture Records)

I think it is fair to say that I have been enjoying the dark, delicious delights of Welsh band Tor Marrock pretty much since inception. They have now delivered three albums and I have caught them at a few shows,… Continue Reading →

Deth Crux – Mutant Flesh (Aural)

Being a music nerd is more than being into one genre. As broad as Metal can be I cannot limit myself to that alone, and I’m not talking about dipping a toe into the likes of AC/DC, Rush or other… Continue Reading →

Hangman’s Chair – Banlieue Triste (Spinefarm)

I first came across this pretty unclassifiable French band with their 2015 album ‘This Is Not Supposed To Be Positive’. As this titles translates to something like ‘Sad Suburb’ you can tell their mood or preoccupations haven’t improved much over… Continue Reading →

King Dude – Music to Make War To (Ván Records)

Having dealt with the topic of love and all its casualties on 2016’s ‘Sex’, TJ Cowgill tackles the polar opposite on latest album ‘Music to Make War To’. Over the course of seven records King Dude’s sound has shifted and… Continue Reading →
