Taake / Whoredom Rife – Pakt (Terratur Possessions)

These two bands have signed a musical ‘pakt’ and have been fellow Norsemen entwined on their separate journeys for some time. Like Hoest, V. Einride is a multi-instrumentalist who composes all his group’s material although is joined by ex Bloodthorn… Continue Reading →

Sylvaine & Unreqvited – Time Without End (Prophecy Productions)

On the one hand, this is an unlikely pairing, but on the other it makes perfect sense and I know this is a bold statement but I don’t recall a split release ever being this coherent or synergistic. ‘Time Without… Continue Reading →

Loathfinder / Druj – Aspects Of Oblation (Godz Ov War)

A Polish / US split here I believe. Not that I’m familiar with either band, mind, but let’s have a listen. Poles Loathfinder are first. ‘Soil Of The Starving’ opens up and rages with some ferocious, chaotic death metal howling… Continue Reading →

Pripjat / Hell:On – A Glimpse… Beyond (Crawling Chaos Records)

This German and Ukrainian split release should come as no surprise to fans of either band or the Ukrainian scene as Kirill (vocals, guitar) and Eugen (guitar) of Pripjat both have Ukrainian descent. If you didn’t know Pripjat is an… Continue Reading →

Moloch / Arria Paetus – Split (Aesthetic Death)

A lovely slab of carefully curated vinyl here from the ever-reliable Aesthetic Death. Housed in a gatefold sleeve with striking artwork from Pierre Perichaud this split features two artists from the black metal underworld both differing in some ways but… Continue Reading →

Pijn & Conjurer – Curse These Metal Hands (Holy Roar)

Curse These Metal Hands represents a first time collaboration between two trailblazers from the UK’s nascent doom scene; Manchester’s sometime three piece Pijn and Rugby’s Conjurer.  This isn’t so much a typical split EP, instead taking members of both bands… Continue Reading →

Abhor / Abysmal Grief – Legione Occulta / Ministerium Diaboli (Iron Bonehead)

Here we have two aged and highly revered Italian cult acts uniting on 12” vinyl and digitally under Iron Bonehead’s grotty sign of the black mark. Both have been around since the early to mid 90’s and have a slew… Continue Reading →

Sarinvomit / Eggs of Gomorrh – Encomium of Depraved Instincts (Krucyator Productions)

Splits are a great way to taste bands. Like a double dipper – you get two flavours of sherbet – just the right amount of each . No time to get bored. Splits have long been the medium for punks,… Continue Reading →

Time Lurker / Cepheide – Split (Ladlo Productions)

Two French bands uniting under the split release format here. Both have been explored by this writer in the past so I kind of knew what to expect. Fast tremolo picking, raging swarms of blackness and a harrowing, hollering vocal… Continue Reading →

Cardinals Folly / Lucifer’s Fall – Split (Cruz Del Sur Music)

I’ve followed Finnish occult doom metallers Cardinals Folly since the release of their debut album “Such Power Is Dangerous!” in 2011 but they really struck a chord with the release of 2013’s “Strange Conflicts Of The Past” which was a… Continue Reading →

Ysengrin / StarGazer– D.A.V.V.N (Nuclear War Now! Productions)

NWN have a series of split releases that started in 2015 that have been thematically linked as this split represents the third in that series which follows an alchemical concept that I won’t go into here, predominantly because I have… Continue Reading →
