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… Continue Reading →

Interview – Virus

Norwegian avant-weirdoes Virus have just released 4th album Memento Collider via Dark Essence Records after a break of five years. As expected it is an ambitious and perplexing listen, stemming right back to a time when everything was going very… Continue Reading →

Virus – Memento Collider (Karisma)

This is one Virus I never mind catching even if it has been more than mere antibiotics that have held it off since 2011 album ‘The Agent That Shapes The Desert.’ Stemming from one of the most creative and revered… Continue Reading →

Arcturus – Arcturian (Prophecy)

This is one of those albums we never really expected to happen. After Arcturus split in 2007 following on from their ‘Sideshow Symphonies’ album a couple of years earlier things seemed pretty final. However they had persevered through losing original… Continue Reading →

A very poetic and atmospheric title sets you up nicely for this second EP from French post, progressive black metal band Orob. After a short choral intro we are flung rapidly down ‘The Pathway’ and it is quickly evident from… Continue Reading →

Epitimia – (Un)reality (Hypnotic Dirge)

Where to start with this one? Well after the first somewhat baffling play it was a case of looking up more information on the band and I noted that this lot from St Petersburg in Russia contained both members of… Continue Reading →

Fleurety – Et Spiritus Meus Semper Sub Sanguinantibus Stellis Habitabit (Aesthetic Death)

Despite having been going for two decades Fleurety have only released two full length albums and are unlikely to ever bring out another one. The work of Svein Egil Hatlevik and Alexander Nordgaren on these full lengths, previous demos and… Continue Reading →

Lychgate – ST (Mordgrimm)

If like me you have the habit of hanging around graveyards you will no doubt have encountered a Lychgate before and even walked under one. Simply put Lych is an old English word for corpse and gate… well duh. It… Continue Reading →

Interview – Solefald

One thing that was rather a big surprise was to find out that Solefald were not only going to play their first dates since 1998 but also they were going to kick off the ‘Fire Walks With Me’ Tour alongside… Continue Reading →
