Halcyon Way – Bloody But Unbowed (Agonia)

American Metal band Halcyon Way have been defying categorization and side-stepping musical labels for over 10 years now and this 4th full-length offering continues to challenge critic’s carefully laid out boundaries.

Haunt – Burst Into Flame (Shadow Kingdom)

Delving amongst the underground gems, Haunt have reached a level of response that spreads across the globe, rather than merely in their country of origin. Their recently released short EP ‘Luminous Eyes’ was a good taster, this first full length album subsequently takes that release.. Read More

Khôrada – Salt (Prophecy Productions)

As a long term fan boy of atmospheric/post black metal Goliath, Agalloch I was bitterly disappointed to hear the news that they had disbanded in 2016. The internet was soon rife with rumours of new bands and when I heard that the majority of the.. Read More
Redemption – Long Night’s Journey into Day (Metal Blade)
