Atavist – III : Absolution (Candlelight)

Right after I started listening to “Absolution”, I was reminded of a character from Airplane proclaiming, “Looks like I picked the wrong day to give up glue sniffing”. By way of explanation, “Absolution” is four tracks of abject misery and… Continue Reading →

Fellwarden – Wreathed In Mourncloud (Eisenwald)

To say Fellwarden’s first release, Oathbearer, rarely strays from my playlist even after three years should tell you the esteem I hold this musical vision in. A project of The Watcher from lauded innovators Fen, with help from his Fen… Continue Reading →

Uprising – II (Wolfsgrimm Records)

The very rare occasions post has arrived during lockdown has been much appreciated and the timing was certainly perfect as far as Uprising are concerned a German one-man outfit with themes of decency and class discontent complete with a plague… Continue Reading →

Winterfylleth – The Reckoning Dawn (Candlelight / Spinefarm)

Firstly, I feel the need to apologise to Winterfylleth. This should have been written well before the release date but, as with most people at the moment circumstances conspired against me. I apologise because I’ve always considered it a rare… Continue Reading →

Ante-Inferno – Fane (UKEM Records)

I first encountered Scarborough based Ante-Inferno about two and a bit years ago at Warhorns. They really made an impression then with a no fuss appearance belying a raw and frighteningly intense stage presence. I got the idea but really… Continue Reading →

Pure Wrath – The Forlorn Soldier (Debemur Morti)

Pure Wrath are, despite two full lengths to their name, a new Indonesian one-man band to me and despite the name this is not lo-fi bestial war metal. In fact, as soon as ‘When A Great Man Dies’ begins you… Continue Reading →

Maeskyyrn – Interlude (Hypnotic Dirge)

Ooo, here’s an oddity. This is the debut full length by Quebec based black metal band Maeskyyrn, but I have to say it doesn’t at first sight seem to fit in with the stuff I usually listen to from that… Continue Reading →

Wolvencrown – Of Bark And Ash (Avantgarde)

This one fell out into that shadow world of mid to late December but even having finally made their acquaintance in 2019 I wasn’t about to let Wolvencrown’s debut slip by uncommented. UKBM has so much to offer at the… Continue Reading →

And Now The Owls Are Smiling – The Comforting Grip Of Misery (Clobber Records)

I first came across the curiously named And Now The Owls Are Smiling, the project of Norfolk based Nre, while delving down the rabbit hole of UKBM and finding his first album Despair and was rather taken by his atmospheric… Continue Reading →

Arx Atrata – The Path Untravelled (S/R)

This is a path I have travelled since it began back in 2013 with debut album Oblivion and continued 3 years later on Spiritus In Terra. The one thing that amazes me is the still self-released status of Arx Atrata,… Continue Reading →

Wolcensmen – Fire in the White Stone (Indie Recordings)

Some albums become a fully immersive experience and this is the case for Wolcensmen’s sophomore release ‘Fire in the White Stone’. Those familiar with the debut ‘Songs from the Fyrgen’ will know what to expect but for the uninitiated this… Continue Reading →

Winterfylleth – The Siege of Mercia (Candlelight)

It’s been 10 years since Winterfylleth made their debut performance at Bloodstock – one of the first open air festivals to take a chance on the now staple of British black metal when they were in their infancy. The band… Continue Reading →
