Ovate – S/T (Soulseller Records)

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. Based around the founding duo.. Read More
Incineration Festival 2018 - Photo Gallery (London Dome and Boston Arms)

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 there armed with a standard.. Read More
Myrkraverk-  Naer Doden (Blut & Eisen Productions)

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’ fame amongst others. The band.. Read More
Aorlhac - L'esprit des vents (Ladlo Productions)

Aorlhac – L’esprit des vents (Ladlo Productions)

With much of the French black metal scene being centred on dissonance and orthodoxy this album came as a breath of fresh air as it is a style that really appeals to me. Aorlhac are more concerned about “looking back into the past” and going.. Read More
Der Todesking – Jorg Buttgereit (Arrow)

Der Todesking – Jorg Buttgereit (Arrow)

The king of death resides resplendent on his throne, it will not be too long before you sit at his feet, it could happen in an instant, a heartbeat. It could take a long suffocating agony, the release from which you find yourself begging for... Read More
Deathcult - Cult Of the Goat (Soulseller Records)

Deathcult – Cult Of the Goat (Soulseller Records)

With the pedigree that this trio exhibit, this record should be astronomical in its deliverance of pure, raw, dirty black metal, and it should be a true masterclass in the production of blasphemous black arts. The trio, made up of brothers Skagg and Thurzur, on.. Read More
The 3rd Attempt – Egocidal Path (Dark Essence)

The 3rd Attempt – Egocidal Path (Dark Essence)

I really enjoyed ‘Born In Thorns, The 3rd Attempt’s 1st Attempt, now a couple of years after that, this is their 2nd. Containing ex members of Carpathian Forest Tchort and Blood Pervertor who no doubt got a bit fed up with Nattefrost bringing that group.. Read More
Taake – Kong Vinter (Dark Essence)

Taake – Kong Vinter (Dark Essence)

Well clearly we had to wait patiently till the end of the year for the 7th Taake album, after all even with the very rudimentary understanding of other languages it’s obvious the subject matter here is Winter. If you couldn’t get the title, one look.. Read More
Stahlsarg - Mechanisms of Misanthropy (Non Serviam Records)

Stahlsarg – Mechanisms of Misanthropy (Non Serviam Records)

Stahlsarg were formed in 2013, and still have their original line up of Eissturm on vocals and guitars, Krieg joining him on guitars, Destruction pounding on the bass and Eisenfaust providing the back bone on the drums, and they have gone from strength to strength.. Read More
Gravdal - Kadaverin (Soulseller Records)

Gravdal – Kadaverin (Soulseller Records)

Just the mention of Norwegian black metal sends shivers down the spine, and in many respects Gravdal’s third album has many of the classic aspects – withering, spiteful riffs, and a cold and lingeringly deathly air. The title track opens up proceeding and immediately sets.. Read More
Taake, Winterfylleth & De Profundis – London Dome 7/4/17

Taake, Winterfylleth & De Profundis – London Dome 7/4/17

The madness never stops. England seems to have never had it quite so good with shows at the moment. Leeds looks like the place to really be at the weekend with Ritual Fest happening but there’s stacks of bands in London too. Tufnell Park has.. Read More
Helheim – landawarijaR (Dark Essence)

Helheim – landawarijaR (Dark Essence)

I could not have asked for a better musical companion to the last couple of cold winter weeks and Norse Viking brigade Helheim’s 9th album has been spun on a near daily basis. There’s always plenty of depth about their work and everything is as.. Read More
