Voices – Frightened (Candlelight)

Voices – Frightened (Candlelight)

Well I have listened to this album every day for the last 10 or so. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining and it hasn’t been a chore in the slightest. It’s just that a work of this breadth and depth is not going to.. Read More
Carpenter Brut + Youth Code – London Koko 23/3/18

Carpenter Brut + Youth Code – London Koko 23/3/18

New types of music are needed even if they hark back to the past, synthwave is officially a thing now and boy is it big. If you grew up on a diet of horror, action and post-apocalyptic films many of them Italian during the 80’s.. Read More
Dreamarcher -  Harding (Indie)

Dreamarcher – Harding (Indie)

I have no idea what is going on here. Not really. Oslo band Dreamarcher are a completely new name to me. This short EP is apparently a concept EP about the town Harding and its history, particularly around industrialisation. Most significantly though there is a.. Read More
Bhleg – Solarmegin (Nordvis)

Bhleg – Solarmegin (Nordvis)

It’s a daunting prospect – an album that’s 98 minutes long and basically about how great the sun is. I worried it would be like watching endless re-runs of “Wish You Were Here” with Judith Chalmers being gradually baked in the Mediterranean, but thankfully we’re.. Read More
Taake – Kong Vinter (Dark Essence)

Taake – Kong Vinter (Dark Essence)

Well clearly we had to wait patiently till the end of the year for the 7th Taake album, after all even with the very rudimentary understanding of other languages it’s obvious the subject matter here is Winter. If you couldn’t get the title, one look.. Read More
Necro Deathmort – Overland (Profound Lore)

Necro Deathmort – Overland (Profound Lore)

‘Overland’ is the eighth full-length release from electronic duo Necro Deathmort, and their first on Profound Lore. The pairing have kept themselves busy over the last decade; as well as creating their own dynamic layers of sound, they have produced remixes for Steven Wilson (Porcupine.. Read More
Lisa Cuthbert – Hextapes (Iron Bonehead)

Lisa Cuthbert – Hextapes (Iron Bonehead)

This album arrived and immediately induced a sense of slight shame that I didn’t know the name Lisa Cuthbert, as she has worked with an extraordinarily wide range of bands from Marillion through The Sisters Of Mercy to Draconian and Ulver. Still here we are.. Read More
Fellwarden – Oathbearer (Eisenwald)

Fellwarden – Oathbearer (Eisenwald)

Fellwarden is the solo project of The Watcher from Fen (ably supported by Fen drummer Havenless) and whilst you should not necessarily think too long on the relationship between solo projects and a musician’s main band I think here a little connectivity is in order... Read More
The Thirteenth Sun – Stardust (Aural Music)

The Thirteenth Sun – Stardust (Aural Music)

Just to call a band Progressive Metal poses further questions nowadays. Many years ago it was easy, it used to be that you would see the term and just think Dream Theater and that’s an end to it, but it’s a badge that thanks to.. Read More
White Ward - Futility Report (Debemur Morti)

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 after I’d listened to this.. Read More
Fleurety - Fragmenta Cuinsvis Aetatis Contemporaneae (Aesthetic Death)

Fleurety – Fragmenta Cuinsvis Aetatis Contemporaneae (Aesthetic Death)

Those manipulators of mayhem and tormentors of trickery Fleurety have called in from planet very strange again and caught us completely off guard. Nobody should be that surprised though as it is what the Norwegian outfit centred around core members Svein Egil Hatlevik and Alexander.. Read More
Ulver - The Assassination of Julius Caesar (House of Mythology)

Ulver – The Assassination of Julius Caesar (House of Mythology)

When it comes to the art of music, Ulver are a law unto themselves. Having been around for almost 25 years, the Norwegian progressive post-black metal experimentalist outfit now possess a status which makes every release they put out feel like a milestone. Having shifted.. Read More
