Therion – Beloved Antichrist (Nuclear Blast Records)

Therion – Beloved Antichrist (Nuclear Blast Records)

I’ll firstly state here and now that I am a complete and utter fan boy of Therion and have been since the first album released in 1991. I missed the demo years and have tried to buy them but with little success, but even on.. Read More
Dr. Living Dead!, Comaniac - London  Underworld 1/2/18

Dr. Living Dead!, Comaniac – London Underworld 1/2/18

I was hoping to catch Rezet or at least the tail end of their set, but they were done by ten to eight with Comaniac already setting up and ready to go by five past, which they didn’t do, rather opting to wait until their.. Read More
Crucifyre - Post Vulcanic Black (Pulverised Records)

Crucifyre – Post Vulcanic Black (Pulverised Records)

The Stockholm old-schoolers return with this, their third album, following from their last release, “Black Magic Fire” back in 2014. I have “Black Magic Fire” in my own personal collection, and while I remember enjoying it, I wasn’t completely blown away with it. There have.. Read More
The Ugly – Thanatology (ViciSolum Productions)

The Ugly – Thanatology (ViciSolum Productions)

The Ugly. Now there’s a name for a black metal band. This is the third full length from this Swedish horde, my first meeting with them and I guess they pretty much lay out their plan of attack from about a minute into the title.. Read More
Anguish - Magna Est Vis Suignah (High Roller)

Anguish – Magna Est Vis Suignah (High Roller)

Founded in 2007, Sweden’s Anguish have experienced a number of line-up changes and creative dry spells. However, the start of a new decade for the band finds them reaching back to their roots and sounding reinvigorated after 2014’s “Mountain”. Vocalist and bass man, J Dee.. Read More
Tribulation – Down Below (Century Media)

Tribulation – Down Below (Century Media)

Maybe it’s a Swedish thing, but Tribulation struck me as a strange bunch when I saw them live. They were energetic, creative and interesting in a darkly melodic and progressive way. I liked their album “Children of the Night” (2015), which was released around the.. Read More
Skineater – Cerebral Relics (Slaughterhouse Records)

Skineater – Cerebral Relics (Slaughterhouse Records)

I wasn’t familiar with this Swedish DM band before receiving this EP (the follow up release to their 2013 debut album “Dermal Harvest”) but a quick bit of research made them sound like a pretty tasty prospect being formed of members / former members of.. Read More
Watain & Degial – London Dome 12/1/18

Watain & Degial – London Dome 12/1/18

First gig of the year and it was destined to be one that won’t be forgotten in a hurry. Watain are playing a few select shows in honour of new album Trident Wolf Eclipse and reports from the first of these in Tilburg had been.. Read More
Panphage – Jord (Nordvis)

Panphage – Jord (Nordvis)

It’s always kind of odd when the first time you hear of a band it comes with a PR sheet that informs you that it’s their final album. Well such is the case with black metal one man band Panphage and the man behind it.. Read More
Pissboiler – In The Lair Of Lucid Nightmares (Third I Rex)

Pissboiler – In The Lair Of Lucid Nightmares (Third I Rex)

Released on the 25th Dec, ok. Well some people get Xmas cards in the post but I got an album by Pissboiler, not that I’m complaining. It gave me some interesting listening over the festering period and as for Lucid Nightmares, they seem to never.. Read More
Avatar – Avatar Country (Century Media)

Avatar – Avatar Country (Century Media)

Gothenburg’s Avatar describe themselves as “a dark, twisted circus sideshow that’s built around bombastically grooving melodic death n’ roll”. Now on their seventh album with a multitude of singles, a live pedigree and a larger than life persona, this album promised to be a bit.. Read More
Shining - X - Varg Utan Flock (Season Of Mist)

Shining – X – Varg Utan Flock (Season Of Mist)

The death throes of one shitty year of existence have barely stopped twitching and another one is just about ready to be shat into existence. Same hopelessness, misery, discontent and feelings of negativity and it seems almost perfect that greeting it will be new releases.. Read More
