Teitanblood – The Baneful Choir (Norma Evangelium Diaboli)

Teitanblood isn’t a band that I knew about before listening to this, but having looked them up, I can see that they have been in existence for more than 15 years, have released three albums, some EPs and splits including… Continue Reading →

Lice – Woe Betide You (Season Of Mist)

Black Metal has a way of worming its way into all manner of other subgenres, almost unlike any other Metal subgenre. I’ve seen Blackened Hardcore, Black Noise, Blackgaze Post-Black Metal the list is frankly endless. I think in part this… Continue Reading →

Vircolac – Masque (Sepulchral Voice Records)

I was very taken with the debut EP from this Irish band. Their old school death metal with a large slice of black metal and their own take on how to squeeze melody between the cracks worked well for me,… Continue Reading →

Junkpile Jimmy – Wants You Dead (Cartel Ilustre)

Err…where to start. Ok, somewhere around 2005 when this was originally recorded and shelved by I assume Jimmy I guess. Or whoever the Californian behind this is. Yeah. Now it’s here. Just what the…   what the Hell is it? Well… Continue Reading →

GraveCoven – Coughing Blood (Godz Ov War)

GraveCoven are a newish US duo who have released a couple of demos and a single before this twenty minute EP. The press release notes them as black doom and as the first song ‘Summoning Vengeance’ growls out of the… Continue Reading →

Gutter Instinct – Heirs of Sisyphus (Pulverised Records)

I realised quite quickly that listening to this album from Sweden’s Gutter Instinct was a case of putting in the hard yards. This weighty death metal tome is, as they have it, “another morbid outlook on explicit realities”. It’s not… Continue Reading →

Ultra Damaged: Damaged Inc. Zine Anthology 1985-2017 – Maniac (Cult Never Dies)

“Wanna buy a fanzine mate?” Ah those desperate calls for beer money at gigs have long gone. No more hawking wares with names like Organ, Dog, P’tahk, Satellite and err Kentucky Fried Afterbirth. The Internet has taken over and the… Continue Reading →

Vassafor – Malediction (Iron Bonehead)

It’s funny but I’ve been listening to a lot of late eighties, early nineties stuff recently for the usual confluence of synchronicity reasons. I say funny, but it’s just that it put me in the right mindset to approach NZ… Continue Reading →

Ofermod – Sol Nox (Shadow Records)

Well over a decade or so ago, Ofermod were much discussed in hushed, whispered tones throughout the underground. Their ‘Mysterion Tes Anomias’ EP had been doing the circuit for some time and – highly regarded piece of art as it… Continue Reading →

Vitriol – S/T (Hellthrasher Productions)

Dankest German filthsters Vitriol released this debut as a demo on cassette format during 2016 and it has been picked up now by Hellthrasher Productions and given a new lease of death on CD. The Nürnberg based duo behind it… Continue Reading →

Coltsblood – Ascending Into Shimmering Darkness (Candlelight)

There is clearly something afoot in the Coltsblood camp, just from looking at the cover of this long awaited follow up to 2014’s Into The Unfathomable Abyss. That debut was a remarkable tomb of blackened sludge and Celtic Frost dragged… Continue Reading →
