Empty – Vacio (Osmose)

Empty – Vacio (Osmose)

I remembered Spanish band Empty not by their name which is hardly remarkable but by the cover art to their third album The House Of Funerary Hymns which certainly caught my attention on release in 2009 with its spooky imagery and giallo like title. The.. Read More
Vanhelga – Fredagsmys (Osmose)

Vanhelga – Fredagsmys (Osmose)

Well firstly a belated congratulations to Vanhelga for finally getting a bit of a step up and signing to Osmose. It’s great that the Swedish band can spread their misery further afield and hopefully they may even get some better tour support, England is still.. Read More
Totalselfhatred – Solitude (Osmose)

Totalselfhatred – Solitude (Osmose)

DSBM I never really know how to feel about it, even now as a pretty long term fan of the genre I don’t quite know what to make of it all. It comes in so many forms, the extremity of Silencer or the melancholic tones.. Read More
Ofdrykkja - Irrfärd (Avantgarde)

Ofdrykkja – Irrfärd (Avantgarde)

Ofdrykkja has come a long way since its first release, the beguiling (if that’s the right word for a self-confessed depressive suicidal black metal band) and harrowing A Life Worth Losing in 2014. Back then things were strictly lo-fi but that only served to amplify.. Read More
None – S/T (Hypnotic Dirge)

None – S/T (Hypnotic Dirge)

It’s probably not surprising that there is little in the way of information available about a band called None. They don’t pop up in the normal places you would try and gather facts about everything from band members to releases, inside leg measurements and favourite.. Read More

Before you read the review we are proud to be one of the websites asked to host the brand new accompanying video for “Utan Mening.”  The song used in the video, is the opening track from “Ode & Elegy, the band’s fourth full-length album, and it.. Read More
Furia – Nocel (Pagan Records)

Furia – Nocel (Pagan Records)

When reviewing Dayal Patterson’s The Cult Never Dies Volume 1 recently I commented about the fact that there were quite a few of the original Polish black metal bands that I had not really heard. This band Furia although only having been around since 2003.. Read More
Vardan – The Night The Loneliness (Moribund)

Vardan – The Night The Loneliness (Moribund)

I almost deleted the digital promo for this thinking I had only just reviewed it but nope that was last month and ‘Verses From Ancient Times.’ Vardan is already on his second album of 2015 and if what the PR says is correct (Metal Archives.. Read More
Eskapi - Välkommen till (O)verkligheten (Art Of Propaganda)

Eskapi – Välkommen till (O)verkligheten (Art Of Propaganda)

The fertile but not right by any means mind of J Gabrielson (Lifelover, Vanhelga) strikes again with a new musical project. Here he provides vocals and lyrics whilst partner in insanity C.J. does everything instrumentally. The debut E.P. does have plenty of recognisable nuances in.. Read More
Vanhelga – Längtan (Art Of Propaganda)

Vanhelga – Längtan (Art Of Propaganda)

Blimey this lot work quickly! I only reviewed the Swedes (album length) EP Sommar at the end of last year and that came rather swiftly from previous album Host earlier in the year and here they are again. Not that I’m complaining. Actually I did.. Read More
