Ævangelist – Nightmarecatcher (Hell’s Headbangers)

If you’ve missed out on all the drama that has been plaguing Ævangelist, it follows pretty much the same pattern as Batushka – band splits, both parties claim to be the original, blah, blah, blah, no one really cares. On… 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 →

Earth – Full Upon Her Burning Lips (Sargent House)

With a career that spans almost thirty years, nine full length albums under their belt and a claim to have been the main creative influence behind Sunn O))), Earth are pretty much a household name for those with even the… Continue Reading →

Sunn O))) – Life Metal (Southern Lord)

Sonic titans Sunn O))) return with their ninth full length album (the first of two due to be released this year) and the first album they’ve produced with Anderson and O’Malley as sole composers since the release of 2015’s ‘Kannon’… Continue Reading →

Sinsaenum – Repulsion for Humanity (earMUSIC)

Sinsaenum is the brain child of Dragonforce bassist, Frederic Leclercq, who back in 2010 formulated some ideas to create a death metal beast. These ideas weren’t cemented into the metal worlds foundations until 2016, when Stephane Buriez, of Loudblast, and… Continue Reading →

Gravetemple – Impassable Fears (Svart)

Comprised of three members of Sunn O))) (Attila Csihar, Stephen O’Malley and Oren Ambarchi), you’d be forgiven for thinking that Gravetemple are just a vanity project, however, while their sound may borrow elements from the aforementioned, this particular band are… Continue Reading →

T.O.M.B. – Fury Nocturnus (Peaceville)

‘Industrial Black Noise’ it says here and in that, I think it’s fair to say that ‘Fury Nocturnus’ delivers. Across fourteen tracks, this US-based trio clearly do their utmost to convey an ambience of impenetrable churning malice – of demented… Continue Reading →

Sunn O))) – Kannon (Southern Lord)

Cast your mind back to 1999, Sun O))) were just starting out and providing titanic sonic vibrations that represented the framework of what makes a brilliant doom song – think along the lines of OM and Earth, with the riffs… Continue Reading →

Gnaw Their Tongues – Abyss Of Longing Throats (Crucial Blast)

Quick note before we start, you may have seen advertising for a collaboration album from this band “Gnaw Their Tongues” and the Uk’s equally twisted purveyors of filth “Dragged Into Sunlight”, but this is not that album, although for the… Continue Reading →

Locrian – Infinite Dissolution (Relapse)

A record that earmark’s Locrian’s shift away from their early days of slow, ambient noise and drone, ‘Infinite Dissolution’ is arguably the Chicago/Baltimore trio’s most accessible work to date; not so much a progression or change in sound, but an… Continue Reading →

Goatsnake – Black Age Blues (Southern Lord)

Way to make me feel old, guys: Goatsnake. See I always think of them as one of my ‘third (old) age of being a music fan’ discoveries and then I realise that their last full length was so long ago… Continue Reading →
