Interview – A Pale Horse Named Death

A Pale Horse Named Death are a five piece who are currently leading the charge for accessible, powerful and melancholic doom. Heavily influenced by the legendary Type O Negative, a band which Sal Abruscato was a founding member of, and… Continue Reading →

Silvertomb – Edge Of Existence (Long Branch Records)

After 2007’s ‘Dead Again’, Type O Negative were supposed to be set to follow up their first SPV release when the tragic passing of Pete Steele occurred. It was during the time between the end of the Dead Again touring… Continue Reading →

Albez Duz – Enigmatic Rites (Listenable)

This is the third album from Berlin’s Albez Duz. The word occult seems to be bandied around a lot with them, and apparently this harks back to the drug-driven early days of heavy metal. There’s definitely something old school about… Continue Reading →

A Pale Horse Named Death, Transport League, Alunah – London Bar Academy 22/3/19

I would have loved to have made the venue last night and can’t be the only person thinking that tonight’s headliners and Pist On would have made the perfect double header. I am sure I saw the latter share a… Continue Reading →

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 →

Tor Marrock – The Concept Of Self (Black Vulture Records)

I think it is fair to say that I have been enjoying the dark, delicious delights of Welsh band Tor Marrock pretty much since inception. They have now delivered three albums and I have caught them at a few shows,… Continue Reading →

Experimental Death Metal two piece Survival is Suicide hail from Catalonia, the much publicized and troubled region of Spain in recent times. This year alone has already seen several releases from various bands who call this region home and all… Continue Reading →

Paradise Lost – Medusa (Nuclear Blast)

Now, if you thought that the veteran gothic/doom metalers had gone back to basics with 2015’s ‘The Plague Within’, wait until you hear this gnarly little fucker. Almost completely devoid of PL’s more grandiose leanings, ‘Medusa’ is certainly their heaviest… Continue Reading →

Seer – Vol. III & IV: Cult of the Void (Art of Propaganda)

It seems like only a few months ago that I was reviewing the first album by Canadian venturers into the outer darkness Seer, but a check on the clock shows that it was in fact closer to a year and… Continue Reading →

The Black Capes – All These Monsters (Dark Tunes)

I used to DJ a few goth clubs back in the day, most of them had a strict “No Metal” policy, so it was always fun to see what I could get away with on the playlists in the midst… Continue Reading →

Danzig – Black Laden Crown (AFM)

What I find rather amusing is that a couple weeks ago I went on a Misfits and Samhain binge and was trying to see how many music videos they had. Most are live clips with a very young and very… Continue Reading →

Life of Agony – A Place Where There’s No More Pain (Napalm Records)

As soon as I got this album, I listened to it to bask in its aural goodness. About halfway through my first listen I started reading the accompanying press release, which states “The famed River Runs Red line-up, featuring vocalist… Continue Reading →
