Blind Guardian Twilight Orchestra – Legacy Of The Dark Lands (Nuclear Blast)

Let’s face it – it had to happen! I’m just amazed it took so long. From the moment I heard the orchestral version of ‘Theatre Of Pain’ as a bonus track on Blind Guardian’s fantastic “Somewhere Far Beyond” album way… Continue Reading →

Dolore – Fantasmi (HPGD Productions)

As I am sure the record label is well aware, horror, pain, gore and death are all key ingredients of any good horror film. So too are decent direction, acting, story and scares but show me as film with everything… Continue Reading →

Psicopompo – Seven Sermons In Stone (Alien Passengers)

Delving right into the experimental underground it would not be surprising if Psicopompo was a completely new name to you as it was to me when I was asked to cover their new release ‘Seven Sermons In Stone.’ This invitation… Continue Reading →

Paolo Spaccamonti – Volume Quattro (Escape from Today)

The sleeve’s artwork tells us everything we need to know here. Paolo Spaccamonti is known as a film score composer and avant-garde musician, so I was on alert for something artistic, different and creative. The eleven pieces take us to… Continue Reading →

MMMD – Egoismo (Antifrost)

MMMΔ, aka MMMD aka Mohammad, now we have that out the way we can begin. Are you sitting comfortably? Well you won’t be for long and going to the toilet and ridding thyself of any excess waste is advisable before… Continue Reading →

Sa Bruxa – From The Depths (Yoshiwara Collective)

It’s time to step into the heart of darkness. If you are timid this may well be a place to explore with caution and one that despite the minimalistic hues of the journey is one you should undertake knowing you… Continue Reading →

Radare – Der Endless Dream (Golden Antenna)

Wiesbaden. Not the most exciting place on earth. Not today, at least. Fancy, though. And rich. The German town used to be very famous for its hot springs, and for being a bathing and gambling place. It was once called… Continue Reading →

Hagazussa – A Heathen’s Curse (Lukas Feigelfeld) + OST MMMD (Antifrost)

Hagazussa – A Heathens Curse is a new film by Austrian director Lukas Feigelfeld. It came to my attention somewhat randomly as the soundtrack by MMMD (Mohammad) was sent in for review. I had never heard of director or musicians… Continue Reading →

Epica – Epica Vs Attack on Titan (Nuclear Blast)

That old saying, a tale of two halves, couldn’t be more appropriate than with Epica’s latest offering ‘Epica Vs Attack On Titan’. The foundations to the album are constructed of ultimately 4 songs, but duplicated between the 1st half being… Continue Reading →

Bodies On Everest – A National Day Of Mourning (Third I Rex)

North-west UK based trio Bodies On Everest are an intriguing group. With a name related to the highest graveyard in the world, it will come as no surprise that both the musical content and delivery lies on the doomier side… Continue Reading →

Malvento – Pneuma (Third I Rex)

I should feel guilty for never coming across Malvento in their 20 odd years of existence but then again there are many “cult Italian” acts so shrouded in obscurity within the underground that there are no shortage of them to… Continue Reading →

Perturbator – New Model (Blood Music)

I, probably like many other metal heads in the world, got into Perturbator aka James Kent, via the “Dangerous Days” album released in 2014 which for me was a chance listen when browsing the Blood Music bandcamp pages just sampling… Continue Reading →
