Blight – Temple of Wounds (Svart)

Blight have been crafting their blackened art for more than a decade in which time, as far as I can see, they’ve released about four EPs for your delight. Spinning through, things seemed to have reached a kind of brutalised… Continue Reading →

Goden – Beyond Darkness (Svart)

Anyone familiar with Winter will know the impact the cult band had on doom metal. With an iciness that reflected the name, they created an apocalyptic sound with soul crushing density. Described as its spiritual successor, Goden is a project… Continue Reading →

Obnoxious Youth – Mouths Sewn Shut (Svart)

Like an Ewok drowned in a honeypot this E.P is short and sweet. If you liked American crossover, Britcore and Scandi punk back in the 80’s you are gonna love Obnoxious Youth.  This sounds like it should have featured on… Continue Reading →

Hexvessel – Kindred (Svart)

If ever there was a time to take a brief respite from madness and apocalyptic extreme metal it is now and thankfully some relief is at hand. Just over a year after last album ‘All Tree’ Finnish forest folk band… Continue Reading →

The Deathtrip – Demon Solar Temple (Svart)

Life for me right now is great and of the many aspects that are so great one would be my recent indulgence with the occult. I’ve always been fascinated by ancient religions and occult teachings. I mean if you’re into… Continue Reading →

Goatess – Blood And Wine (Svart)

I first discovered Goatess back in 2014 when they headlined a gig in The Black Heart along with Serpent Venom and Sigiriya and it was a very memorable experience. Three different types of doom all working in perfect harmony to… Continue Reading →

Wizard Rifle – S/T (Svart)

The biggest surprise here is, indeed, that this whirlwind of sound is produced by only two people. Wizard Rifle, or more precisely drummer/vocalist Sam Ford and guitarist/vocalist Max Dameron, seemingly effortlessly manage to sound like a four/five-piece band. Judging from… Continue Reading →

Jess by the Lake – Under the Red Light Shine (Svart)

Jess By the Lake is a solo project of Jasmin Saarela, singer of the band Jess and the Ancient Ones. While her main band is known for a heavy psych sound featuring a bit of the occult, her solo project… Continue Reading →

Sabbath Assembly – A Letter Of Red (Svart)

A decade old and with a wealth of ideas soaking into their world both musically and thematically Sabbath Assembly have grown into one of the more interesting bands around and every new release has something different about it. They started… Continue Reading →

Kings Destroy – Fantasma Nera (Svart)

There’s something very satisfying in the earthy, deep and reverberating bass lines of stoner rock. They go straight to your guts and remind you of your most basic feelings and instincts. I liked that sound when it first appeared and… Continue Reading →

Demon Head – Hellfire Ocean Void (Svart Records)

I must admit I was curious about this Danish band, mainly because I like their band name (no they are not some sort of bastardised Diamond Head in case you’re thinking that) plus the description of their music hooked me… Continue Reading →

The Sabbathian – Latum Alterum (Svart Records)

So, hands up class, what kind of metal might we be dealing with when the band is called “The Sabbathian” ? Doom metal? Correct-a-mundo, albeit probably not quite in the vein that you’d be expecting. There are no Iommi-rip-off riffing… Continue Reading →
