The Wakedead Gathering / Ecferus - Split (I, Voidhanger)

The Wakedead Gathering / Ecferus – Split (I, Voidhanger)

A relatively short release, this, being as it is a four track EP coming from those lovers of all things eclectic, I, Voidhanger records. In fairness, both acts are one-man outfits. Featured here is the dark and wilfully obscure death metal of Ohio’s Wakedead Gathering,.. Read More
Hands of Orlac / The Wandering Midget - Split (Cruz Del Sur)

Hands of Orlac / The Wandering Midget – Split (Cruz Del Sur)

I don’t know if there’s some cryptic message here that only truly makes sense when you’re seriously stoned, but something feels so fitting about the collaboration between The Wandering Midget and Hands of Orlac as if the two, albeit imaginary and abstract characters, might have.. Read More
Wederganger / Urfaust  - Split (Ván Records)

Wederganger / Urfaust – Split (Ván Records)

I’ve been a fan of Wederganger since I saw them at Eindhoven Metal Meeting 2016, and I have heard a lot of good things about Urfaust and have been keen to check them out, but somehow, I have never got around to it. So, when.. Read More
Arrogant Destruktor / Wrang – Split (Wolfspell Records)

Arrogant Destruktor / Wrang – Split (Wolfspell Records)

Some major damage going on here. The cover shows a bombed out and totally devastated scene that looks like somewhere such as Dresden in WWII. There’s a tank on the back cover and inside a shiny disc with 2 bands causing utmost destruction. One of.. Read More
Haar / Ur Draugr split (ATMF)

Haar / Ur Draugr split (ATMF)

This is an interesting split album, comprising three tracks from Scotland’s Haar and the Australian black metal band Ur Draugr. This comes on the back of 2015 album releases by both bands. I didn’t know either band before this, but after reading beforehand about Haar,.. Read More
Drudkh / Grift - Betrayed By The Sun / Hägringar (Season of Mist)

Drudkh / Grift – Betrayed By The Sun / Hägringar (Season of Mist)

So many black metal split releases from frontline bands have emerged over the past 12 months that frantic collectors must be having to take out new mortgages to keep up. But if it’s a nicely balanced EP – including the excellent cover very much in.. Read More
Drudkh / Hades Almighty – One Who Talks With the Fog / Pyre Era, Black! ( Season Of Mist/ Dark Essence)

Drudkh / Hades Almighty – One Who Talks With the Fog / Pyre Era, Black! ( Season Of Mist/ Dark Essence)

An interesting coming together of two acts that are rapidly approaching legendary status within black metal circles, albeit for somewhat different reasons. Drudkh are the enigmatic Ukrainian outfit who never play live, never carry out interviews and have since seen fit to release a steady.. Read More
Earthless / Harsh Toke -  Acid Crusher / Mount Swan (Tee Pee)

Earthless / Harsh Toke – Acid Crusher / Mount Swan (Tee Pee)

For some reason watery metaphors were washing through my brain when I realised what I’d let myself in for with this split: ‘In at the deep end ‘, ‘sink or swim’, ‘out of my depth’ kind of thing. I mean a split EP from two.. Read More
Gurt / Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Night - GUPPY - (When Planets Collide)

Gurt / Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Night – GUPPY – (When Planets Collide)

Guppy is a split release and recording between two of the UK’s finest underground bands circulating in the doom/stoner/sludge market. The combination includes the same drummer Bill Jacobs and this was a unique release as both bands entered the studio and recorded together and thus.. Read More
Satanic Warmaster/Archgoat – Split (Hells Headbangers)

Satanic Warmaster/Archgoat – Split (Hells Headbangers)

It seems there’s been quite a bit of controversy around Satanic Warmaster lately – something to do with a gig in Scotland. Now they’re not a band I’d ever really investigated. From distant memory (mainly Supernal mail order catalogues) their early album titles and choices.. Read More
Azaghal and Oath - Split (Immortal Frost Productions)

Azaghal and Oath – Split (Immortal Frost Productions)

In days gone by when the black metal scenes were more or less at war with each other I always felt that in that battle of sonic diablerie the Finnish bands would come out on top due to their uncompromising wrath and inherent deviltry of.. Read More
