Stillborn – Testimonio de Bautismo (Godz of War)

Frenzied violence greets us. But this is the deathly black world of Poland’s Stillborn, whose fifth album this is. Space is not allowed for compromise or mercy in the Polish metal scene, and it’s not here. All that is allowed… Continue Reading →

Stahlsarg – Comrades In Death (Mighty Music)

It wasn’t that they contain ex-members of Eastern Front and yet still play war-themed blackened death metal that initially intrigued me about UK band Stahlsarg; no it was that they managed to produce their own branded beer before producing their… Continue Reading →

Division Speed – S/T (High Roller)

“Don’t mention the war. I did it a minute ago but I think I got away with it!”. Thus spake the Cleese Spirit down Torquay way. These days there are quite a few willing to get all “World at War”… Continue Reading →

Neptrecus – Frères de Sang (Mortis Humanae Productions)

Black metal de France and this has more than a whiff of the eau de war about it as illustrated on the grim grey artwork and the opening sounds of gunfire and marching boots. Neptrecus debut album ‘L’Aube De Declin’… Continue Reading →

Ares Kingdom – The Unburiable Dead (Nuclear War Now)

Following a five year break from original studio recordings, save for a release of cover versions a couple of years back (‘Veneration’), Ares Kingdom return, streamlined to a 3-piece, but ever so powerful as they always have been. ‘The Unburiable… Continue Reading →

Nightrage – The Puritan (Despotz Records)

Nightrage we meet again, it’s been a while too since last album Insidious came out via Lifeforce Records in 2011. They were with that label for several albums and before then Century Media for a couple so it does seem… Continue Reading →

Infernal War – Axiom (Agonia)

Black metal from Poland conjures up a vivid image of uncompromising throaty harshness. I happened to mention to someone the other day that I was reviewing this band’s album, and unwittingly earned a badge of respect for being willing to… Continue Reading →

Porta Nigra – Kaiserschnitt (Debemur Morti)

I absolutely loved 2012 release ‘Fin de Siècle’ from this wacked out decedent German dark metal duo. It delivered the most compulsive and memorable song of the year in the form of ‘Meglomaniac’, one listen to it and you were… Continue Reading →

Decaying – One to Conquer (Hellthrasher Productions)

Finland’s war commentating death metal mercenaries have moved on a bit in the 3 years since I last took stock of their material. There has been an album and EP since the most excellent ‘Encirclement’ album. That focused lyrically more… Continue Reading →

Marduk – Frontschwein (Century Media)

The big guns are keen to get blazing at the start of 2015 and Marduk are quick off the mark to fire it up with studio album number 13. Its thematically a return to the trenches as well, citing their… Continue Reading →

Sturmtiger – World At War 1914 – 1918 (Black Plague Records)

I wasn’t so much as rather taken with Sturmtiger’s blistering take on blackened death metal on Atomic Hammer, as pulverised as it rolled over me unconcerned with what I thought. So, flattened but still enthusiastic I was really pleased when… Continue Reading →

Ave Noctum’s Mark Eve recently caught up with Destroyer, bass player for UKBM war machine, Eastern Front for a quick chat about the stonking new record – ‘Descent Into Genocide’ AN: What have people’s responses to the new album been… Continue Reading →
