Gaahls WYRD – GastiR – Ghosts Invited (Season of Mist)

Gaahl is synonymous with black metal and is a true uber behemoth of the world, a demi god, if you will, of the genre and any new work by the master is welcomed with open arms. Gaahls Wyrd has been… Continue Reading →

Inferno Festival Day Three – Oslo Rockefeller and John Dee 20/4/19

Having cleared the hangover with a big breakfast, I made my annual trip to the infamous Neseblod store. I have written about this in previous years’ reviews so won’t go into detail except to say that Neseblod has a huge place in… Continue Reading →

Kampfar – Ofidians Manifest (Indie)

Without a shadow of a doubt Kampfar are one of the leading Scandinavian pagan black metal bands with a hugely respected output of releases going back to 1995. Perhaps we had been taking them for granted just a little too… Continue Reading →

Helheim – Rignir (Dark Essence)

Are Norwegians like us in England, obsessed about the weather? Well from what I know they certainly get afflicted by all sorts of extremes far worse than we do here in that respect but no doubt shrug their shoulders and… Continue Reading →

Sjukdom – Stridshymner Og Dodssalmer (Osmose)

Sjukdom are as barren and bleak as the Norwegian landscape thy hail from. This is the bands second release, ‘Stridshymner Og Dodssalmer’, and is not to be confused with releases by bands with the same moniker from Sweden and USA…. Continue Reading →

Orkan – Element (Dark Essence Records)

Aeternus – Heathen (Dark Essence Records)

In common with their name, Aeternus seem to have been around forever. The lynchpin is Ares, who founded the band from Bergen in 1993 and has been the epicentre of a band, which has historical and current links with many… Continue Reading →

One Tail, One Head – Worlds Open, Worlds Collide (Terratur Possessions)

It seems a fitting nod to their moniker that OTOH’s first album is also their last, the beginning swallowing the end in a sense, to create the perfect ouroboros. Having formed 12 years ago in Trondheim, Norway, the black metal… Continue Reading →

Ovate – S/T (Soulseller Records)

Ovate announce their arrival on the ever evolving black metal scene with their eponymous debut album, boasting a veritable smorgasbord of guest artists from the Norwegian black metal community, and making a bold statement as they trample across sub-genre boundaries…. Continue Reading →

Incineration Festival 2018 – Photo Gallery (London Dome and Boston Arms)

There was an unfortunate and total lack of communication regarding Incineration Festival this year which resulted in a reviewer with SLR down for the event. We won’t say more than that on the issue but one of our team was… Continue Reading →

Myrkraverk- Naer Doden (Blut & Eisen Productions)

Another year and another debut black metal album from the icy wastelands of Norway, this time it’s from a duo with a formidable pedigree under their bullet belts. The duo is led by Infamroth of ‘Throne Of Katarsis’ and ‘Skuggeheim’… Continue Reading →
