Thief – Map of Lost Keys (Prophecy)

Dylan Neal’s other band, Botanist, might not be to everyone’s taste (hammered dulcimer black metal anyone?) but it certainly makes a change from listening to a very long line of black-metal-o-likes queuing up to deliver their take on something that… Continue Reading →

Interview – Manes

Norwegian band Manes recently released “Slow Motion Death Sequence”, their fifth album. This is a band which has experienced various transformations and name changes since 1991, but whose music has always been unusual and on the edge. To find out… Continue Reading →

Manes – Slow Motion Death Sequence (Debemur Morti)

To cut a long story short involving temporary releases, compilations and different band names, Manes are from Trondheim in Norway and thoroughly impressed me with their creative album “Be All End All” (2014). The trick lies in the moods and… Continue Reading →

End Christian – Bach part One (Translation Loss / Internet & Weed / Corpse Flower Records)

Trip Hop is a funny beast. As sludge is to NOLA the heady mix of rhythmic dance, hip hop and electronica slithered from Bristol in the 90’s. How strange to hear it’s influence so heavy in End Christian. This is… Continue Reading →

White Ward – Futility Report (Debemur Morti)

Well fuck me (Er..don’t actually. Pretty sure neither of us would enjoy it…), a PR sheet that speaks the truth! ‘A metallic version of Ulver’s Perdition City.. ‘ Yep, that’s it. Or a melodic death metal version at least. Now… Continue Reading →

Netra – Ingrats (Hypnotic Dirge Records)

One of the most innovative albums I have ever heard was Netra’s “Sørbyen” (2012), a bleak and atmospheric album with the unusual and effective inclusion of trip-hop. The urban street feel of that album features on the artwork of this… Continue Reading →

Manes – Be All End All (Debemur Morti)

Manes undoubtedly come from the Norwegian planet, inhabited by Atrox, Green Carnation, Audrey Horne and others, where life is seen from an odd and oblique angle. My only previous exposure to this band, who have now released four albums and… Continue Reading →

Lethe – When Dreams Become Nightmares (Debemur Morti)

If you’re looking for seamless meeting of metal and electronica that’s just as suited to a Sunday morning as a Friday night, you may have just stumbled into the right place. When Dreams Become Nightmares is the band’s first platter… Continue Reading →

Ekove Efrits – Nowhere (Hypnotic Dirge)

Ekove Efrits along with Silent Path are projects conceived by Iranian ‘Count De Efrit,’ or Saman N. I am not entirely sure if he operates from within Iran and if he does I am sure a certain amount of ambiguity… Continue Reading →

Netra Featuring We’rewolves – Dreading Consciousness (Hypnotic Dirge)

Well this is certainly something a bit different and most welcome it is too. French artist Netra already proved to us that he was an eclectic listening experience with his 2012 album ‘Sørbyen.’ Mixing all sorts of different textures that… Continue Reading →

Deth Rok – Us & Them (13th Planet)

Deth Rok, from Ministry collaborator Aaron Havill, falls into a broad category of music that I would describe as come-down music. Or, more accurately, music that you should avoid – at all costs – listening to when on an actual… Continue Reading →

Netra – Sørbyen (Hypnotic Dirge Records)

“Boredom ruins my life” screams the message in the album’s notes. With their disparate styles, Netra seem to be aiming at dispelling the boredom while reflecting it at the same time with their depictions of “fading nature and urban depression”…. Continue Reading →
