Wormwood – Nattarvet (Black Lodge)

Now OK, I’m not the usual go-to-guy for Black Metal bands on Ave Noctum. I think many of my fellow writers would possibly go so far as to state that I’m not really even on the list of go-to-guys-and-gals…and admittedly,… Continue Reading →

Istapp – The Insidious Star (Trollzorn)

The biography makes much of this being this Swedish outfits fourth album, when in fact it’s only their third; so-called debut “Köldens Union” was in fact a collection of demos and live recordings. With the metadata missing from half of… Continue Reading →

Spiral Skies – Blues For A Dying Planet (AOP Records)

It’s been 3 years, but finally following the success of their debut EP “A Queendom To Come”, Swedish Retro-rockers Spiral Skies present their first full-length album. It was certainly well worth the wait as it is a veritable cornucopia of… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Vinsta – Wiads (Trollmusic)

I confess that I know very little (please wait for me to finish my sentence before agreeing…) about Vinsta. It appears to be pretty much a solo project by multi-instrumentalist Christian Höll and Vinsta’s facebook page has some really great… Continue Reading →

Vintersorg – Till fjälls, del II (Napalm Records)

Vintersorg seems incapable of standing still. I’m not saying he’s got ADHD or Restless Leg Syndrome or something, I mean his band is always looking to explore new avenues and ideas. The Borknagar vocalist has always used his eponymously titled… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Heidevolk – Velua (Napalm)

There’s no messing around with twiddly, whimsical intros for Dutch Pagan Metallers Heidevolk. Nope, opening track ‘Winter Woede’ piles straight in there, brimming with their own special brand of Tyr-tinged, Ensiferum-edged Viking Metal that they have been crafting and honing… Continue Reading →

Vyrju – Black (Black Forest)

It’s black and on Black Forest Records, that should give you some idea what to expect in the way of pine scented glory from this EP. Hailing from Norway but also with further flung help which I shall get to… Continue Reading →

Solefald – Norrønasongen Kosmopolis Nord (Indie)

When we spoke to Cornelius about plans for a new album the follow up to 2010 release ‘Norrøn livskunst’ he told us “I’m not going to tell you anything about the album! I can give you the title, ‘Kosmopolis’ with… Continue Reading →

Interview – Vintersorg

Vintersorg, the man, the vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, has contributed to more than 25 albums since 1994, encompassing many different styles of Metal. His past and present bands include Otyg, Fission, Waterclime, Havayoth and Cronian, but is probably best known for… Continue Reading →

Vintersorg – Naturbål (Napalm)

  When a mate of mine heard the last Borknagar album, his first comment to me was “Well, that’s Vintersorg buggered then”. I felt this was a comment with far too many possible connotations…on many levels…and so I asked him… Continue Reading →
