Lethean – The Waters of Death (Cruz Del Sur)

Lethean – The Waters of Death (Cruz Del Sur)

This is a project featuring multi-instrumentalist James Ashbey (Deceptor, ex-Solstice, Craven Idol and Doctor Death) and singer Thumri Paavana. Described as a cross between Doom, Epic Metal and NWOBHM, the thought is quite tempting. Immediately you are dragged into epic metal territory with ‘Idylls of.. Read More

Mystifier, Solstice, Craven Idol & Sufferer – London Boston Arms 2/11/18

With many tootling off up the M1 to Leeds and Damnation Festival this weekend I had to wonder how busy this show was going to be. Fear not, London has come out and there are already a fair few in the venue for 1st band.. Read More
Tad Morose - Chapter X (GMR Music)

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 can hone their ideas, tweak.. Read More
Godthrymm – A Grand Reclamation (Transcending Records)

Godthrymm – A Grand Reclamation (Transcending Records)

Supergroups aren’t a new idea, but are they always a good idea? A vast number of highly creative individuals crammed into one space with influences and styles running amok may sound like a recipe for success but it can potentially end in disaster. That being.. Read More
Interview - Dautha

Interview – Dautha

Swedish doomsters Dautha set the great bell tolling with their demo almost two years ago which was at long last followed with a full release last month. Brethren of the Black Soil fulfilled expectations of an epic doom event as well as including plenty for.. Read More
Solstice -  White Horse Hill (Invictus)

Solstice – White Horse Hill (Invictus)

Twenty years. Twenty. Years. Two decades since the classic epic doom sounds of New Dark Age first graced us, and legends Solstice were only actually inactive for five of those. Since then the band have gigged, written, road tested, rewritten, demoed and road tested again.. Read More
Monolith Cult – Gospel of Despair (Transcending Records)

Monolith Cult – Gospel of Despair (Transcending Records)

First review for 2018, and it’s for a band I’ve so far managed to avoid; nothing deliberate, it’s just that there is only so much music I can fit in my life before the bosses at work would object to my not appearing. Being busy,.. Read More
Doom Metal Lexicanum - Aleksey Evdokimov (Cult Never Dies)

Doom Metal Lexicanum – Aleksey Evdokimov (Cult Never Dies)

I’ll start out here by saying this is some book. A suitably hefty tome and no mistake, wrapped in another marvellous cover by artist David Thiérrée (a print of which is also available from the publisher for a modest add-on price) I believe) in coffee.. Read More
Atlantean Kodex - The Annihilation Of Bavaria (Van Records)

Atlantean Kodex – The Annihilation Of Bavaria (Van Records)

Atlantean Kodex. Bavarian purveyors of the richest epic metal outside of Solstice, writers of lyrics both poetic and rich in academic research. A truly remarkable troupe whose last studio album The White Goddess is a genuine classic. If you know them you will want this... Read More
Lunar Shadow – Far From Light (Cruz Del Sur)

Lunar Shadow – Far From Light (Cruz Del Sur)

They were right, damn them. Cruz del Sur, in their promotional material, warned that it might take a few listens to take in Lunar Shadow, in all of their glory. I almost didn’t get past the first few bars, if I’m really honest. It was.. Read More
Warhorns Festival – The Venue Selby 16-17/9/16 Day 2

Warhorns Festival – The Venue Selby 16-17/9/16 Day 2

Day 2 Day two of Warhorns dawned and my merry little band were still trying to figure out what the hell Whispered had been all about, but arrived with a pleasant number of others in time to catch first band Daemona. A few seconds in.. Read More
Interview - Warhorns Festival

Interview – Warhorns Festival

The small but perfectly formed Warhorns festival has become a bit of a highlight over the last few years. Nestled deep in Viking country in Selby, North Yorkshire, a short stone’s throw from historic York/Jorvik, it has a warmth and enthusiasm rare these days and.. Read More
