Devil Master – Satan Spits On Children Of Light (Relapse Records)

A Pale Horse Named Death – When The World Becomes Undone (Long Branch Records)

Normally you would associate anything musical hailing from Brooklyn to be of the hardcore variety, but there is a darker, heavier and suffocating presence which lurks in the depths of it. Originally, this beast was Type O Negative, but since… Continue Reading →

The Vice – XIII Years (S/R)

This E.P from Stockholm’s The Vice is 4 tracks of Nightbreed style Goth rock with hints of metal.  This trio layer on the atmosphere like the beer and sweat on the steps in the Slimelight (treacherous masonry that it is) …. Continue Reading →

The Eden House – Songs For The Broken Ones (Jungle)

Order Of Isaz – Seven Years Of Famine (Season Of Mist)

I seem to be encountering building wave of Gothic Metal bands that seem intent on recapturing Gothic Metal from the symphonic Nightwish-a-likes that got dubbed with the term more due to image than sound. Gothic Metal – the male (more… Continue Reading →

Mystons – Black Matter (V. R. Label)

As a matter of principle I tend to ignore blurb, and just say what I think about whatever music I’m sent. On this occasion, arriving as it did with a very well presented digipack I gave the PR a read,… Continue Reading →

Tor Marrock – Destroy The Soul (Black Vulture Records)

It has been a long time since we had any new material from Welsh band Tor Marrock but then again they have always been somewhat elusive, doing things at their own pace and then popping up and surprising with some… Continue Reading →

NFD – Reformations (Jungle)

It’s been a very long time in fact 2008 album Deeper Visions was the last thing we heard from NFD and they have not played a show for a long time either. Typically they announced one in London with some… Continue Reading →
