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
Shining, Taake and Slegest – London Underworld 4/12/16

Shining, Taake and Slegest – London Underworld 4/12/16

Although not a great idea slating some of our potential readership it has to be said that some so called “extreme music fans” are whiny ass bitches with a massive sense of self-entitlement and tonight just proved this. Firstly it shouldn’t have been any real.. Read More
Black Hole Generator - A Requiem For Terra (Dark Essence)

Black Hole Generator – A Requiem For Terra (Dark Essence)

As I write this it looks as though the ‘American people’ have elected a president. After staring in abject disbelief at their ‘choice’ the black, stripped, hopeless sound of the title and title track here are an appropriate soundscape to slash open your soul to... Read More
Heimdalls Wacht – Geisterseher (Trollzorn)

Heimdalls Wacht – Geisterseher (Trollzorn)

Thank god – and by that I mean the guardian of Bifrost himself – that Heimdalls Wacht has returned. Last year’s full-length was all over the place – bloated, too reliant on the clichés of the genre and too long for the quality of the.. Read More
True Black Dawn - Come The Colorless Dawn (World Terror Committee Productions)

True Black Dawn – Come The Colorless Dawn (World Terror Committee Productions)

It appears this Finnish black metal act has had to add the word true to their name due to some other band called Black Dawn that threatened legal action which is completely retarded. Still Mayhem added true to their name with no ill effects I.. Read More
Sulphur – Omens of Doom (Dark Essence)

Sulphur – Omens of Doom (Dark Essence)

With band members from Gorgoroth, Enslaved, Aeternus and Vulture Industries, and with further connections in the productions and mastering to Taake and Audrey Horne, this album is like Norwegian statement. There’s the added mystery of the band not having released anything since their second album.. Read More
Urgehal – Aeons in Sodom (Season of Mist)

Urgehal – Aeons in Sodom (Season of Mist)

Anyone who thought black metal legends Urgehal would dream of serving up half measures on their final album need only look at the guest list. Like a Who’s Who of Norwegian black metal, the list includes Darkthrone’s Nocturno Culto, Hoest from Taake, Carpathian Forest’s Nattefrost.. Read More
