Crippled Black Phoenix - Horrific Honorifics (Season Of Mist)

Crippled Black Phoenix – Horrific Honorifics (Season Of Mist)

I think I should begin by telling you that I like Crippled Black Phoenix’ cover EP Horrific Honorifics immensely. It is great. One could write a novel about it. In fact, it might be a novel, or a biography, in musical form, but to understand.. Read More
Jarboe & Father Murphy – EP (ConSouling Sounds)

Jarboe & Father Murphy – EP (ConSouling Sounds)

Bonded by a sense of guilt, rooted in their respective Catholic upbringings, a creative collaboration between American artist and performer Jarboe and Italian occult duo Father Murphy seems only natural. Approaching the EP, both Jarboe and Father Murphy each wrote a song, which they exchanged.. Read More
Klimt 1918 – Sentimentale Jugend (Prophecy)

Klimt 1918 – Sentimentale Jugend (Prophecy)

Every now and then, a record comes out of the blue that takes you totally by surprise – and Klimt 1918’s first album in eight years is very much one of those releases. The initial signs were not hugely promising – wistful, misty artwork, a.. Read More

Madmans Esprit – Nacht (ATMF)

Madmans Esprit – Nacht (ATMF)

We should be used to the weird and wonderful emerging from the Far East by now. But South Korea’s Madmans Esprit still manage to sound like they discovered the idea with a strange and beautiful blend of metal that exists on entirely the wrong side.. Read More
Mord ‘a’ Stigmata – Ansia (Pagan Records)

Mord ‘a’ Stigmata – Ansia (Pagan Records)

If only there was another way of describing the various forms of ‘post’ black metal without being as totally dismissive and casually offensive as that description implies. It’s a label that’s almost impossible to get excited about and suggests a watered down, slightly directionless musical.. Read More
Culted – Oblique to All Paths (Relapse)

Culted – Oblique to All Paths (Relapse)

The internet is for porn, right? Time to step into the 21st century, friends; the World Wide Web is now an eclectic array of cats, cat gifs, funny cat videos AND porn (without cats). Oh, and it’s also seen the formation of some pretty amazing.. Read More
