Eneferens - In The Hours Beneath (Nordvis)

Eneferens – In The Hours Beneath (Nordvis)

Eneferens formed in 2016 and is the majestic monster of American, Jori Apedaile. Jori delivered his first full length beast, in the form of ‘The Inward Cold’ and he is now ready to unleash his latest masterpiece, ‘In The Hours Beneath’, which is a behemoth.. Read More
The Kahless Clone - Our Never-Ending Loneliness (S/R)

The Kahless Clone – Our Never-Ending Loneliness (S/R)

For some reason the last couple of November’s Doom albums didn’t seem to hit our radar, shame as I have always quite liked the band ‘The Pale Haunt Departure’ 2005 being a particular favourite. The reason I am mentioning this is that guitarist Vito Marchese.. Read More
Bell Witch – Mirror Reaper (Profound Lore)

Bell Witch – Mirror Reaper (Profound Lore)

Review a one track 83 minute doom track they said. It will be good for you and fun they said. Well actually they didn’t but curiosity got the better of me (and you know what they bloody well said about that). Perhaps like the rest.. Read More
Spectral Voice – Eroded Corridors Of Unbeing (Dark Descent Records)

Spectral Voice – Eroded Corridors Of Unbeing (Dark Descent Records)

It is quite possible that Dark Descent is one of my favourite record labels and has been for the past few years due to the continual output of top quality extreme music they release and this debut full length from US doom death outfit Spectral.. Read More
Ancient VVisdom – 33 (Argonauta Records)

Ancient VVisdom – 33 (Argonauta Records)

My Relationship with Ancient VVisdom began rather unexpectedly at the Inferno Festival 2012, in the small John Dee room. I was happily having my head caved in by all sorts of extremity such as Svarttjern and One Tail, One Head, when the carnage relented for.. Read More
R.I.P. - Street Reaper (Riding Easy Records)

R.I.P. – Street Reaper (Riding Easy Records)

“It’s early 2017, and time for more doom.” What is that a quote from, I metaphorically hear you ask? Well, it’s the opening line for my January review of R.I.P.’s first album of 2017, in fact their first album, ‘In The Wind.’ Now, without having.. Read More
Witherfall - Nocturnes and Requiems (Century Media)

Witherfall – Nocturnes and Requiems (Century Media)

Witherfall are a relatively new American Metal band but with a fine pedigree. They were conceived by guitarist Jake Dreyer (Iced Earth etc), Vocalist Joseph Michael (Midnight Reign, Omery Rising, ex-White Wizzard, ex-Peppermint Creeps) and drummer Adam Sagan (ex-Circle II Circle, ex-Into Eternity). However, during.. Read More
Battle Dagorath - II: Frozen Light of Eternal Darkness (Avantgarde Music)

Battle Dagorath – II: Frozen Light of Eternal Darkness (Avantgarde Music)

As the title suggests, this album is a sequel. The first part “Dark Dragons of the Cosmos” was well received. The seemingly timeless Vinterriket is half of Battle Dagorath. What we’re led to expect here are distant and dreamlike ominous landscapes. These landscapes are ominously.. Read More
Khazaddum – Plagues Upon Arda (S/R)

Khazaddum – Plagues Upon Arda (S/R)

If it’s not the great old one H.P. Lovecraft then its J.R.R. Tolkien and one has to wonder if the two literary greats would ever have envisaged their impact on the extreme metal world but there is certainly no denying their influence. Some of the.. Read More
Acephalix – Decreation (20 Buck Spin)

Acephalix – Decreation (20 Buck Spin)

US crusty old school death metal connoisseurs Acephalix have left it quite a while to give us their third album which follows on from 2012’s “Deathless Master”, an album I enjoyed quite a lot back then with its bone sawing riffs and jack hammering drums... Read More
Hexx - Wrath of the Reaper (High Roller)

Hexx – Wrath of the Reaper (High Roller)

Hexx made some great albums back in the day, their first two in particular ‘No Escape’ and ‘Under the Spell’ closing that chapter with ‘Quest for Sanity’. Later changing from their power metal roots, they evolved into a harsher death/thrash inspired outfit with a different.. Read More
Soul Remnants – Ouroboros (eOne)

Soul Remnants – Ouroboros (eOne)

I was lucky enough to review “Black and Blood”, Soul Remnants second album a long while ago. It was a total blast and a fine balance between classic old school thrashing death metal and more modern technical DM.  So when this, their third album came.. Read More
