Tad Morose – Chapter X (GMR Music)

Tad Morose weren’t in any rush to do a new album, they have their own recording studio (well, the singer does), they love playing live and can record when the mood takes – not a bad way to be! They… Continue Reading →

Procession – Doom Decimation (High Roller)

Procession have come a long way. From Chile to Sweden and back again to Chile to record this album, in fact…It has also been four long years since their magnificent sophomore album ‘To Reap The Heavens Apart’, in part presumably… Continue Reading →

Argus – From Fields Of Fire (Cruz Del Sur Music)

Having thoroughly enjoyed the Adruini/Balich album from earlier this year I felt happily honour-bound to cover the new release from vocalist Butch Balich’s main band Argus. With a voice as utterly and intrinsically “Metal” as Balich’s, with a band possessing… Continue Reading →

Arduini/Balich – Dawn Of Ages (Cruz Del Sur)

As a forward slash between two names generally denotes, it’s collaboration time people! In the dark corner we have one of the founding guitarists of Progressive Metal pioneers Fates Warning (he was on the first two albums with the high-and-higher… Continue Reading →

Nocturnalia – Above Below Within (Gaphals)

The scene is set a with sombre, classically flavoured piano intro, just over 2 minutes long, full of emotion and drama. Anything could be coming next, Black Metal? Pagan Metal? Post Rock? Symphonic Metal? Doom? Almost the last thing I… Continue Reading →

Epitaph – Crawling Out Of The Crypt (High Roller)

Classic 80’s style Heavy/Doom Metal anyone? From an Italian band that were there the first time but have only just got around to re-recording their best tracks? A band that dress in silver pointy hats, fake Spock ears, skin-tight cropped… Continue Reading →

Dhwesha – Sthoopa (Dunkelheit)

Meaning ‘hatred/revenge’ in the band’s native language, Kannada, the Indians of Dhwesha have been gradually gearing up for their debut album since 2008. Incorporating the members’ interest in their culture’s history and mythology, it seems pretty fair to say that… Continue Reading →

Revelation – Inner Harbor (Shadow Kingdom)

I suppose I should have kept up with Revelation’s releases in recent years but I had good reason not to. Back in 1991, armed with 20 quid I went in to town in search of some good old Doom Metal… Continue Reading →

Void of Sleep – Tales Between Reality and Madness ( Aural Music)

Italy really seems to be coming into its own these days as a country where metal thrives. There is a huge and bewildering wealth of talent springing from every corner of this nation, which was unimaginable not too many years… Continue Reading →
