Dreams Of The Drowned – I (Drowned Anthem Records)

It’s no rare occurrence wading through press releases and being promised albums in a similar vein as lots of favourite artists and neither is the disappointment of listening to them and finding very little similar to what you had hoped…. Continue Reading →

Voivod – The Wake (Century Media)

It’s been 5 years since Voivod last targeted earth, not that they haven’t been busy with smaller releases and extensive touring over that time. An album from the Canadian troops is pretty much a main event and they work steadfastly… Continue Reading →

Khanus – Flammiron (I, Voidhanger)

Ready for some metal of death with shamanic drumming and chanting, occasional soprano vocals and choral aspects and even the use of a singing bowl? Well that should give you an idea that this album, the first from Khanus following… Continue Reading →

Aura Noir – Aura Noire (Indie)

With a six year gap between albums one may have thought that Aura Noir had been (Hung) Out To Die but the trio are back like a waft of rotten air and that’s something I am more than happy about…. Continue Reading →

Taake – Kong Vinter (Dark Essence)

Well clearly we had to wait patiently till the end of the year for the 7th Taake album, after all even with the very rudimentary understanding of other languages it’s obvious the subject matter here is Winter. If you couldn’t… Continue Reading →

Fleurety – The White Death (Peaceville)

Bloody hell you wait 17 years for a Fleurety album and 2 come along in the space of months. Fair enough ‘Inquietum’ which you can read all about elsewhere on these pages is strictly a compilation featuring 4 singles released… Continue Reading →

Vulture Industries – Stranger Times (Season Of Mist)

There’s no denying that we are living in stranger times and can only thank all things within this chaotic era for music like this, something that reflects the lunacy we are dwelling amidst, during our short time on this crazy… Continue Reading →

Fleurety – Inquietum (Aesthetic Death)

I have had a bit of an infatuation with Fleurety ever since hearing their incredibly weird and breath-taking 1995 album Min tid Skal Komme. It subverted genre within the black metal world that I had come to love from Norway… Continue Reading →

In Human Form – Opening of the Eye by the Death of I (I, Voidhanger)

That’s one clunky album title but actually that’s Ok as this is one clunky album. Continuing on their everlasting quest to pick out the obscure and unfathomable, Italian label I, Voidhanger always manage to keep us on our toes and… Continue Reading →

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 →
