Panzerfaust – The Suns Of Perdition: Chapter I: War, Horrid War (Eisenwald)

How have I not alighted on this band previously? World War II (loosely) themed Canadian black metallers Panzerfaust have been kicking around for a while now but, with only three albums before this, it’s perhaps understandable they could have flown… Continue Reading →

The Order Of Apollyon – Moriah (Agonia)

Once upon a time, shortly after being founded by then Aborted frontman BST in 2008, The Order Of Apollyon were rounded out by stalwarts of the British underground. The band then underwent a merry-go-round of musician changes through the release… Continue Reading →

Decline Of The I – Escape (Agonia)

Concept albums love them or loathe them I think they are a brilliant staple in what I would consider to be a healthy musical diet. The reason being is that they perpetuate the ritual of listening to albums in full,… Continue Reading →

Nydvind – Seas of Oblivion (Malpermesita Records)

I can’t exactly remember how I discovered Nydvind. I suspect I picked up one of their tracks from a sampler, which came with a French metal magazine. I do remember buying “Eternal Winter Domain” (2003). I played it to myself… Continue Reading →

Malhkebre – Revelation (I, Voidhanger)

If it’s French and it’s black metal then it is bound to be strange, weird or even plain bizarre and whilst not as bizarre as some French black metal beasts out there it’s close enough to bamboozle the listener with… Continue Reading →

Valkyrja – The Antagonist’s Fire (World Terror Committee)

I first heard this Swedish band when they released “Contamination” in 2010 and was suitably blown away by the sheer vitriolic terror unleashed. As expected this third opus starts with a serene introduction on “Betrayal Incarnate” before the riff breathes… Continue Reading →

Hell Militia – Jacob’s Ladder (Season Of Mist)

A very good warning is never to watch the film Jacob’s Ladder on LSD, especially not on first viewing. That said you should also probably never listen to Hell Militia on LSD either, not that this scribe dabbles in such… Continue Reading →
