Iron Curtain – Danger Zone (Dying Victims)

This is Spanish band Iron Curtain’s fourth album, and based on the progression from Speed and NWoBHM influence through to the metal might of Priest on their last offering ‘Guilty as Charged’, I have high hopes for this. As soon… Continue Reading →

Undead – Existential Horror (Godz Ov War)

There’s no shortage of Undead bands in the metal graveyard, its an obvious name and there’s no less than 14 bunches of ghouls using the moniker according to Metal Archives. This is an international group whose members are largely made… Continue Reading →

Sun Of The Dying – The Earth Is Silent (Art Of Propaganda)

Currently the earth is not silent, far from it, it is a tumultuous place seething with monstrous acts as nature battles with humanity for dominance, and if Sun Of The Dying had anything to do with it then this would… Continue Reading →

At the helm of this Spanish black metal project is Heolstor who has his creative fingers in other projects. Prior to becoming Mystagos this project was called Chains Ov Beleth for about a decade before changing name. Black metal itself… Continue Reading →

Qayin Regis – Doctrine (Blackseed Productions)

Well one thing is assured, Qayin Regis certainly have a doctrine and here be it. “QAYIN REGIS’ Black Metal is orthodox and consciously based in the spiritual gnostic syncretization of the Spanish black magic, the cult of Death and the… Continue Reading →

Oniricous – La Maladicion (Black Seed Productions)

Oniricous may not be on everyone’s radars as these Spaniards only have two previous full length albums, ‘Ritos Disbolicos’ (2013) and ‘La Caverna Del Fuego’ (2016), but this new EP may help to propel them into the hearts of many… Continue Reading →

Numen – Iluntasuna Besarkatu Nuen Betiko (LADLO Productions)

Numen have apparently been on the go since 1997 but it’s been twelve years since their last recording so maybe a new start then. They hail from the Basque Country and that title up there is in their native language… Continue Reading →

Teitanblood – The Baneful Choir (Norma Evangelium Diaboli)

Teitanblood isn’t a band that I knew about before listening to this, but having looked them up, I can see that they have been in existence for more than 15 years, have released three albums, some EPs and splits including… Continue Reading →

Alerta – Tu Decides El Final (Blood Fire Death)

Spain hasn’t been my go to location for hardcore in my collection over the last 30 years or so as these Basque Country bruisers unleash a fifth album heavily tinged with metallic components. With all lyrics sang in Basque or… Continue Reading →
