V:XII – Rom, Rune And Ruin. The Odium Disciplina (Aesthetic Death)

“Last days of Rome are here!” The runes were ignored and the ruin sets in. Numerological significance of VXII is an anagrammandolo of the cursed number 17 VIXI in Latin translating to roughly “I lived” then “died”. Take from that… Continue Reading →

Sweven – The Eternal Resonance (Ván Records)

As you’ve probably guessed this Swedish act is named after the final album by Morbus Chron before they split up. Purely the sonic vision of Morbus Chron’s Robert Andersson this could be viewed as a solo project under the banner… Continue Reading →

Deranged – Deeds Of Ruthless Violence (Agonia)

Music is much like a fine wine, the best is often in the vintage. I mean, don’t get me wrong new is good too (I’d be a pretty awful reviewer if I hated anything modern). Yet still it’s often the… Continue Reading →

Ambush – Infidel (High Roller)

Ambush are back, I really love this band and there is no surprises here on their third album. Ambush have always been masters of harmony, both from the guitar and the vocals. This is once again very well represented here… Continue Reading →

Wolf – Feeding The Machine (Century Media)

Wolf are a band that somehow still sound as fresh and exciting as they always have, many years down the line. They are instantly recognisable, yet play such a traditional form of straight-edged Heavy Metal revered by fans all over… Continue Reading →

CB3 – Aeons (The Sign Records)

Looking at the world of hard rock and heavy metal, it is pretty much undeniable that Sweden must have more musicians per head of population than any other country in the world. Throw in their pop output, it does make… Continue Reading →

Saturnalia Temple – Gravity (Listenable)

I don’t know why but I always view Doom as a bit of an afterthought when it comes to the bigger Metal genres, which is strange given the impact it has had through the likes of Black Sabbath. I’m no… Continue Reading →

Mitochondrial Sun – S/T (Argonauta)

Niklas Sundin is one of the most prominent names in the Swedish Melodic Death Metal scene. A forefather and pioneer of the genre, most noted for being a member of the widely recognised and highly acclaimed Dark Tranquillity, he has… Continue Reading →

Reaper – Unholy Nordic Noise (Iron Bonehead)

So, if there was to be a prize this year for the album title that most accurately described the music therein, it would be “Unholy Nordic Noise”. I like to think that the Swedish crew have just time-travelled in from… Continue Reading →

Moloken – Unveilance of Dark Matter (The Sign Records)

Coming from the cold Swedish university city Umeå, the home of Cult of Luna and Meshuggah amongst others, tells you something. This is Moloken’s fourth album release. Expect darkness. Moloken immediately set about imprinting themselves on our mind with a… Continue Reading →

Jordablod – The Cabinet of Numinous Song (Iron Bonehead)

Messy, chaotic, raucous, rampant and encrusted with filth. Sounds like my kinda party, and also the kind of party that Iron Bonehead have been hosting for years. No surprise then that Jordablod from Malmo have come to the gathering with… Continue Reading →

Brothers Of Metal – Emblas Saga (AFM)

This Swedish 8 piece (yes, eight piece!) Epic Melodic Power Metal band do not hang about! Eager to capitalize on their debut released via AFM just a year ago, this band of Metal brothers (with one sister) are ready once… Continue Reading →
