Decline Of The I – Escape (Agonia)

Concept albums love them or loathe them I think they are a brilliant staple in what I would consider to be a healthy musical diet. The reason being is that they perpetuate the ritual of listening to albums in full,… Continue Reading →

Arkhon Infaustus – Passing the Nekromanteion (Ladlo Productions)

In the latest edition of what bloody rock did they disappear under it’s time to welcome the return of Arkhon Infaustus. It’s been ten whole years since last album ‘Orthodoxyn’ but the French black / death occultists are finally back,… Continue Reading →

Blacklodge – MachinatioN (Season Of Mist)

Well done to Season Of Mist for picking up this home grown group whose career has always been intriguing to say the least. I first encountered these filthy French fucks around their debut album ‘Login:SataN’ 2003 which I described as… Continue Reading →
