Jesu – Everyday I Get Closer To The Light From Which I Came (Avalanche)

With all eyes and ears being on Godflesh and their resurrection recently one could have forgotten about Jesu and the fact that Justin Broadrick has his own more reflective project. I rued the day that Godflesh split having been a… Continue Reading →

Coldstrain – I (Spectral Halls)

It would appear that Russian ambient black practitioners of very dark arts Karna are no more. This is a shame as they released some excellent albums such as the excellent Raven (2006). It is not the last of them you… Continue Reading →
