Raised By Owls – Dreadful (S/R)

Much like the title of this album, things recently (outside of the world of music) have been pretty dreadful. Politicians playing hot potato with the country’s economic and geopolitical standings and future, abnormal weather patterns a plenty with no consistency… Continue Reading →

Green Lung – Woodland Rites (Kozmik Artifactz)

There now appear to be as many retro minded occult rock bands using Hammer Horror samples as there were films made by those masters of the macabre.  South London’s Green Lung are coughing up their debut Woodland Rites on the date… Continue Reading →

Disfago – Snake.Triangle.Sacrifice (S/R)

This grubby UK outfit’s vitriolic seven inch from 2015 is riddled with vehement chaotic nihilism, an honest slab of discordant mayhem ransacking various genres and this newest offering continues those assertions with an album saturated in old school violence but… Continue Reading →

Sykelig Englen – To Walk Among Death And Pestilence (AHPN)

I spend a lot of time lately going down the rabbit hole that is the underground UKBM scene via a combination of odd leads, distros and the tangle that is Bandcamp. It’s a weird and scary place at times but… Continue Reading →

11 Paranoias – Asterismal (Ritual Productions)

11 Paranoias don’t do things on a small scale, it is full on mind-fuckery across every level of their releases. From the artwork to the music to their approach to bringing it all together, the experimental noise/psych/doom three-piece have returned… Continue Reading →

Venom Prison – Samsara (Prosthetic Records)

Antre – Void (Withered Hand Records)

This Notts, Derby based quintet may have only emerged from their “Cave” relatively recently but the member’s collective roots spread a lot further back. They have been involved in plenty of bands whose names should be familiar to those keeping… Continue Reading →

Dethonator – Race Against The Sun: Part One (Pavement Entertainment)

London’s Dethonator have been hard at work creating a follow up to 2013’s “Return To Damnation”. Full of tight knit blasts of classic era metal, they had laid their foundation and marked out their direction. New release, “Race Against The… Continue Reading →

Crucible Of The Vampire – Ian Ross McNamee (Screenbound) Review and Competition

Scroll down for competition. British horror films definitely need support and encouragement although sometimes it can be a difficult task. I am more of an age to appreciate the old guard such as Peter Walker and Norman J Warren and… Continue Reading →

Hecate Enthroned – Embrace Of The Godless Aeon (M –Theory Audio)

Extreme Metal is a funny term, much like Viking Metal and Alternative Metal it is a bit of a non-genre. By that I mean that it has no real annotations pointing to distinct features. Death Metal, Black Metal or even… Continue Reading →

Juniper Grave – Of Hellions & Harridans (Wasted State Records)

Firmly rooted in the psychedelic rock tradition of the ‘70s with influences of occult artists like Blood Ceremony and Jex Thoth, Juniper Grave’s debut album “Of Hellions & Harridans” promises us tales of forgotten folklore and prophecies of doom. The… Continue Reading →
