Pijn & Conjurer – Curse These Metal Hands (Holy Roar)

Curse These Metal Hands represents a first time collaboration between two trailblazers from the UK’s nascent doom scene; Manchester’s sometime three piece Pijn and Rugby’s Conjurer.  This isn’t so much a typical split EP, instead taking members of both bands… Continue Reading →

Sellsword – Unto The Breach (S/R)

Well if Andy Barker can do a black metal review, I can do a power metal review. Especially when it’s the Jorvik miscreant mercenary troop known as Sellsword. If you don’t know their name, then come close and listen. They… Continue Reading →

Sacrilege – The Court of the Insane (Pure Steel)

This is Sacrilege’s third release since their 2012 comeback, their 7th in total, whilst always featuring on the darker and heavier side of the NWoBHM movement, they certainly don’t disappoint. Having caught this band live quite a few times now,… Continue Reading →

Sykelig Englen – This Hollow Land (Clobber Records / AHPN)

If you read my last review of Sykelig Englen you might wonder what I’m doing with this. Or even why main man Nattskog sent this in to us. Well firstly I desperately tried to be constructive as I could just… Continue Reading →

Centrilia – In The Name Of Nothing (233 Records)

Fire up the flux capacitor, strap yourself into your DeLorean and put the pedal to the metal until you hit 88 mph; we’re going back to the 1990’s…  Great Scott! In The Name Of Nothing is the debut album from… Continue Reading →

Damim – A Fine Game Of Nil (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Can I say this is the debut by Damim to make it sound like I’m here, in at the beginning? Nah, ’tis their third after a slight name shift from Dam (I assume for reasons of clashes, lineup rejig or… Continue Reading →

Deflore & Jaz Coleman – Party In The Chaos (Subsound)

If you have never heard of Italian instrumental duo Deflore, well you can no doubt be forgiven. They have never hit my radar despite having four albums out. If however you don’t know who Jaz Coleman is, well shame on… Continue Reading →

Written In Torment – Maledictus Dies Illa (S/R)

So here I am again, part three of what has turned out to be a trilogy of reviews for Yorkshire UKBM. One way or another Blood Countess, Sathamel and now this one man project of mastermind Leviathan have strong links… Continue Reading →

Memoriam – Requiem For Mankind (Nuclear Blast)

Some bands are so legendary that they transcend above and beyond the call of duty. I mean this in as much as they form into an uncontrollable force that cannot be tainted. Just look at Led Zeppelin or Queen, bands… Continue Reading →
