Druadan Forest – The Lost Dimension (Wolfspell)

Druadan Forest – The Lost Dimension (Wolfspell)

Have you been waiting patiently for the last 5 years for a new Summoning album? Well not long to go until Silenius and Protector deliver new opus ‘With Doom We Come.’ If you are really hungering for an immediate trip to Middle Earth you will.. Read More
Mussorgski – Creatio Cosmicam Bestiae (Godz Ov War)

Mussorgski – Creatio Cosmicam Bestiae (Godz Ov War)

How…? What the..? Where did these guys come from? Ok, ‘this guy,’ more accurately. And the short answer is ‘Poland’ but that’s the answer to a lot of other questions too and the word ‘Poland’ is not really going to explain much about Mussorgski. At.. Read More
Darkestrah – Turan (Osmose)

Darkestrah – Turan (Osmose)

Hopefully Darkestrah should need no introduction by now to anyone who has a thing for bands combining eastern vibes with black metal. Luckily, though, Darkestrah is so much more than that. For the uninitiated – and at the risk of sounding like a wild-eyed zealot.. Read More
Dissvarth – Between The Light And The Moon (I, Voidhanger)

Dissvarth – Between The Light And The Moon (I, Voidhanger)

Dissvarth’s starry-eyed debut is the latest from Australia’s extreme metal creative force Dis Pater  also known for Midnight Odyssey. In his other projects, Pater manages to blend his unique mix of black metal, funeral doom and keyboard-soaked ideas into boundless and gently unpredictable soundscapes. This.. Read More
Frozen Ocean – The Prowess Of Dormition (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Frozen Ocean – The Prowess Of Dormition (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

No stranger to these pages Vaarwel has worked incredibly hard since the Russian first conceived Frozen Ocean back in 2005 and notched up a wealth of releases. You never know when to expect him or what he is going to release as genre wise he.. Read More
Ixion – Enfant De La Nuit (Finisterian Dead End)

Ixion – Enfant De La Nuit (Finisterian Dead End)

Prog funeral doom? I guess it had to happen even in this most conservative and tectonic of genres – here with elements of keyboard abuser Jean Michel Jarre, those other serial French synth talents Air and black metal hook machine Summoning and we are truly.. Read More
Annwn – Idris Awaits (S/R)

Annwn – Idris Awaits (S/R)

Here’s a real blast from the past. This Welsh band got in touch reminding that we had reviewed their previous demos via past websites when they were active between 2006 and 2009. In that time the band have not split up or anything but it.. Read More
Amestigon – Thier (World Terror Committee)

Amestigon – Thier (World Terror Committee)

Extreme music has long since transcended the standard four-guys-on-a-stage, dressed to impress and entertain for an hour or two on a Saturday night. Ok, maybe that Rubicon was crossed way back in the 1960s or 1970s – maybe even earlier, jazz fans, blues fans and.. Read More
Thou Shell of Death – Sepulchral Silence (Talheim Record)

Thou Shell of Death – Sepulchral Silence (Talheim Record)

Estonian black metal described as a mix between Darkspace and Summoning – big names and truth be told, that’s pretty much what we get with this esoteric three-piece. At least on the surface anyway. Big washes of warm, spacey synths open ‘The Night Wind’, giving.. Read More
Arx Atrata – Oblivion (SR)

Arx Atrata – Oblivion (SR)

I like the band name, it just rolls off the tongue and kind of types from the keyboard in the same fashion. As for further information there is not a fantastic amount more I can tell you as the letter accompanying the disc points out.. Read More
Battle Dagorath – Cursed Storm of Ages (ATMF)

Battle Dagorath – Cursed Storm of Ages (ATMF)

My last experience of Battle Dagorath was their debut album, which I gave a glowing review to back in the ‘ye olde Metal Team UK’ days. I was drawn in by their epic, Emperor-like soundscapes, and their unabashed love of all things Tolkien. Blasting and.. Read More
The Eye – Supremacy (Debemur Morti)

The Eye – Supremacy (Debemur Morti)

The Eye, interesting name for a band. Is it perhaps all seeing? If it offends thee would you pluck it out? Maybe, and if you still are eyes wide shut and in the dark, if I mentioned that this is a project from the past.. Read More
