Eggs Of Gomorrh – Outpregnate (Krucyator Productions)

You what? Yep it’s kind of difficult taking the group name seriously here. Every time I think of it I get images of a missing Tom Baker Doctor Who adventure written by Terry Nation. No doubt if it had existed… Continue Reading →

Sinmara – Hvísl Stjarnanna (Ván Records)

Iceland appears to have overtaken Finland in terms of metal bands per capita, and Sinmara are one of the more recognisable names hailing from the land of fire and ice. After causing quite a stir with their 2014 debut album… Continue Reading →

What’s in a name? A lot, apparently. After spending seven years as the not very catchy Gone Postal, the Reykjavík four piece changed their name to Shrine back in 2014, before dropping the ‘S’ to a ‘Z’ in 2015 and… Continue Reading →

Ill Omen – Ae Thy Rift (Nuclear War Now)

The brand of occult black metal that Ill Omen excels at exists somewhere in the realms between Deathspell Omega dissonance, funeral doom and pure ritualistic noise. It’s the kind of album that’s probably going to click right into your listening… Continue Reading →
