Grendel’s Syster – Myrtle Wreath / Myrtenkranz (Hoove Child Records)

After their last release, Orphic Gold Leaves, I expressed an interest in seeing how this German trio developed. So here we are. Firstly you have to be pretty astounded by the quality of the packaging in this. Again, as with… Continue Reading →

Helvetets Port – From Life To Death (High Roller)

Strangely never even heard of this Gothenburg band. Well I ain’t the personification of Metal Archives so maybe I can be forgiven. The PR guff mutters about being one of the originators of the return to traditional heavy metal in… Continue Reading →

Interview – Sanhedrin

We talked to up-and-coming heavy metal trio Sanhedrin from Brooklyn, NYC, currently on tour in Europe. Between the sound check and their show in Vienna, Austria, Erica Stoltz (bass, vocals), Jeremy Sosville (guitar, backing vocals, also of Black Anvil), and… Continue Reading →

Twisted Tower Dire – Wars In The Unknown (No Remorse)

Look up the words ‘stalwarts’ and ‘diehards’ and the dictionary should say ‘see also Twisted Tower Dire’. With three of the five having been together since 1997 – Mark Stauffer (drums), Scott Waldrop (guitars and ultra marathons) and Dave Boyd… Continue Reading →

Grendel’s Syster – Orphic Gold Leaves (S/R)

RAVENSIRE from Portugal are an epic heavy metal band, enthralled in historical lyrical content and musically solid making sounds that are very heavy. There are a few bands out there in the world involved in this style, but few have… Continue Reading →

Visigoth – The Revenant King (Metal Blade)

Visigoth are a cool epic metal band from Salt Lake City in the States, roll forward a few years since they first caught my attention and we have a major label signing, a new logo and new music…but not in… Continue Reading →

Interview – Slough Feg

With an excellent new album out in the racks, in Digital Resistance, Ave Noctum decided to track down Mike Skalzi singer, guitarist and writer with US rockers Slough Feg in the internet ether for little chat on the future of… Continue Reading →

Black Magician – The Pursuivant (Svart)

To a true black magician the line straddling the esoteric and ethereal is tenuous indeed. Equally blurred is the distinction between realms of imagination and fantasy. Tangential and limited by perception only is the border between the physical realm and… Continue Reading →

Interview – Corsair

You may recall how impressed and taken I was with the Shadow Kingdom debut album from US rockers Corsair, and as it came so out of the blue to me I was intrigued as to who these classy upstarts were… Continue Reading →

Corsair – ST (Shadow Kingdom)

Corsair are one of those almost defiantly not modern metal bands who wander out of the US in particular now and then; a rock band who hark back to the days when Thin Lizzy were the heaviest thing on the… Continue Reading →
