Bodies On Everest - A National Day Of Mourning (Third I Rex)

Bodies On Everest – A National Day Of Mourning (Third I Rex)

North-west UK based trio Bodies On Everest are an intriguing group. With a name related to the highest graveyard in the world, it will come as no surprise that both the musical content and delivery lies on the doomier side of the spectrum. With approaches.. Read More
Orange Goblin – The Wolf Bites Back (Candlelight Records)

Orange Goblin – The Wolf Bites Back (Candlelight Records)

It’s 2018 and in short order the majority of the mainstream folks I work with have been variously excited by the FA cup final, a royal wedding, the forthcoming Steps and Aqua show in Dundee (I shit you not folks!), and now the forthcoming world.. Read More
Toledo Steel – No Quarter (Dissonance)

Toledo Steel – No Quarter (Dissonance)

Southampton’s Toledo Steel are on a great journey. Ever present in the UK metal scene over the last few years, I am quite pleased with the progression and this, to finally get to their debut album release. It just shows what can be achieved born.. Read More
Arrogant Destruktor - Commandments Of War And Necromancy (Total Death)

Arrogant Destruktor – Commandments Of War And Necromancy (Total Death)

Here’s a nice coincidence; I bought the limited cassette run version of this on spec a while back just because I liked the name, and it’s now getting a CD release. I still know very little about the band other than they appear to be.. Read More
Sykelig Englen – Hagall (AHPN Records)

Sykelig Englen – Hagall (AHPN Records)

Would it be strange to say that you have to be in the mood for DSBM? I don’t necessarily mean I want to be sad when I’m listening to it I just mean that sometimes its drab tones don’t always tickle my fancy. I do.. Read More
Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Given the kind of music that my own band plays, I’m surprised that I’ve never checked out Limb before. It seems like I’ve been missing out on something very special, certainly if this third L.P. is anything to go by. Prog infused and swagger-fueled doomy.. Read More
Primitai - The Calling (Dissonance)

Primitai – The Calling (Dissonance)

Based in the UK, a country surprisingly (and disappointingly) sparse in quality Melodic Metal bands, it’s great to hear a class act like Primitai flying the flag so confidently for old Blighty. Fledgling UK Metal bands (who aren’t pummeling their way down the extreme metal.. Read More
Monument – Hellhound (Rock Of Angels)

Monument – Hellhound (Rock Of Angels)

How not to make friends and influence me; open the album with a pirate themed song called ‘William Kidd’, make it historically dubious (if ever there was a guy whose crew didn’t do their best to serve him well it was Kidd, and he had.. Read More
Svalbard - It's Hard To Have Hope (Holy Roar)

Svalbard – It’s Hard To Have Hope (Holy Roar)

They sure know how to pick their bands at Holy Roar Records. Svalbard is certainly another stroke of genius. This perfect, angry, energy-laden mixture of melodic death metal, hardcore, crust punk and post-rock with female vocals and socially critical lyrics will no doubt gather a.. Read More
Age Of Taurus – The Colony Slain (Rise Above Records)

Age Of Taurus – The Colony Slain (Rise Above Records)

Bizarre as it sounds, but it has been an all too long five years since the rather excellent debut by Age Of Taurus, namely the doom laden majesty that was ‘Desperate Souls of Tortured Times’, a fact that surprised me as it was only a.. Read More
Eye Of Solitude / Marche Funèbre – Split (Hypnotic Dirge)

Eye Of Solitude / Marche Funèbre – Split (Hypnotic Dirge)

Two well respected bands in extreme doom circles go at it together for this split release, both with one track each. Due to the genre as you would expect that does not mean a shortage of material in any respect as the numbers weigh in.. Read More
Grave Lines – Fed into the Nihilist Engine (New Heavy Sounds)

Grave Lines – Fed into the Nihilist Engine (New Heavy Sounds)

Since the release of 2016’s ‘Welcome to Nothing’, South-eastern four-piece Grave Lines have been met with critical acclaim, earning themselves a space on the line up for Desertfest 2017, as well as support slots for the likes of Oathbreaker, Ufomammut and Cough. Considering the band.. Read More
