Cloak – To Venomous Depths (Season of Mist)

Cloak – To Venomous Depths (Season of Mist)

Atlanta Georgia is not the first place one would think of when Blackened Death Rock is what is on the cards. However, Cloak hail form the Southern States and ply their trade in the same market as Watain and Tribulation. The quintet have been around.. Read More
Blaze of Perdition – Conscious Darkness (Agonia)

Blaze of Perdition – Conscious Darkness (Agonia)

Blaze of Perdition really had a point to make with their last album, 2015’s ‘Near Death Revelations’. Coming off of the back of a terrible road accident in which one member was killed and two others injured, it was doubtless shaped – both conceptually and.. Read More
Nazghor - Infernal Aphorism (Non Serviam)

Nazghor – Infernal Aphorism (Non Serviam)

It, quite rightly, takes a lot for a black metal album to impress these days. So when one lands from a Swedish band with five albums already under their belt, you can’t help but brace for a journeyman effort with plenty of corpse paint and.. Read More
Arckanum - Den förstfödde (Folter Records)

Arckanum – Den förstfödde (Folter Records)

Normally an Arckanum release would be met with a bit of a fanfare but this, his 9th studio album seems to have slipped in with a somewhat muted fashion. Not only that but the press release here states that “the Swede is back for one.. Read More
Sheidim - Infamata (I, Voidhanger)

Sheidim – Infamata (I, Voidhanger)

Discordant sombreness fills the air. So starts this EP from Spanish black metal band Sheidim. From this comes the ferocious fire of “A Dying Sun”, with a distinct thrash element fuelling the flames. An old school guitar line, more sinister instrumentals and voices, and a.. Read More
Wound – Engrained (FDA Rekotz)

Wound – Engrained (FDA Rekotz)

It’s sophomore time for Germany’s Wound, and they hit the nail on the head with ‘Engrained’, a potent mix of black and death metal, with enough traditional styling and spot-on production to satisfy everyone. Following on from 2013’s ‘Inhale The Void’ this record pretty much.. Read More
Stygian Temple – In The Sign Of The Five Angles (Sol Records)

Stygian Temple – In The Sign Of The Five Angles (Sol Records)

You kind of know what to expect from a cold, dark name like Stygian Temple and that’s just as well as these Germans don’t go down the normal public Internet route of giving much in the way of information away. Indeed we don’t even get.. Read More
Fides Inversa – Rite of Inverse Incarnation (World Terror Committee)

Fides Inversa – Rite of Inverse Incarnation (World Terror Committee)

Fides Inversa threw a few people with the change of pace between their first and second albums even though both were finely distilled black metal class. The debut was an unhinged white knuckle ride that felt like an unholy marriage of Watain and Deathspell Omega... Read More
Khaospath - For The Devil Speaks The Truth (Immortal Frost)

Khaospath – For The Devil Speaks The Truth (Immortal Frost)

I have to admit that I found this, the sophomore album from Swedish band Khaospath a little tricky to review. It’s definitely not one for the casual black metal fan or an introduction to the genre which I consider a good thing; something about the.. Read More
T.O.M.B. – Fury Nocturnus (Peaceville)

T.O.M.B. – Fury Nocturnus (Peaceville)

‘Industrial Black Noise’ it says here and in that, I think it’s fair to say that ‘Fury Nocturnus’ delivers. Across fourteen tracks, this US-based trio clearly do their utmost to convey an ambience of impenetrable churning malice – of demented rituals dedicated to the void-black.. Read More
Denouncement Pyre – Black Sun Unbound (Hells Headbangers)

Denouncement Pyre – Black Sun Unbound (Hells Headbangers)

Just when you thought the Australian extreme metal scene couldn’t get any better, along came Denouncement Pyre back in 2013 with the devastating Almighty Arcanum. As if to prove that was no fluke, and clearly determined not to leave the field open this year for.. Read More
Necronautical – The Endurance At Night (Cacophonous)

Necronautical – The Endurance At Night (Cacophonous)

Setting sail with their 2nd full-length album, under the flag of resurrected cult label Cacophonous, are voyage-obsessed misanthropic black metallers from the Northwest of England, Necronautical. Presenting themselves with the intensity of a seafaring Eastern Front, ‘The Endurance At Night’ is a blasting and plundering.. Read More
