None – Life Has Gone On Long Enough (Hypnotic Dirge)

Aint that album title the truth? Well it must feel like that to everyone at some point and None as their name suggests have probably not got the best outlook on life and are here making music and at least,… Continue Reading →

None – S/T (Hypnotic Dirge)

It’s probably not surprising that there is little in the way of information available about a band called None. They don’t pop up in the normal places you would try and gather facts about everything from band members to releases,… Continue Reading →

Hermóðr – Vinter (Wolfspell)

Yep, an album dedicated to Winter, which is perfect timing as it is just what we are in the throes of at the moment and it’s suitably cold. I would say it’s been absolutely freezing but may end up with… Continue Reading →

Vyrju – Black (Black Forest)

It’s black and on Black Forest Records, that should give you some idea what to expect in the way of pine scented glory from this EP. Hailing from Norway but also with further flung help which I shall get to… Continue Reading →

Interview – Tim Yatras – Autumn’s Dawn

To say that Australian Tim Yatras who also at times goes by the name Sorrow has had a busy career would be an understatement. It’s pretty easy to lose count of the amount of bands and solo projects he has… Continue Reading →

Autumn’s Dawn – Gone (Eisenwald)

Hurrah it’s almost autumn, yeah piss off summer you had your turn and made us all hot, sticky and uncomfortable as well as spreading all your nasty allergies and dishing out some strange and severe weather of all sorts. Favourite… Continue Reading →

Austere – Withering Illusions And Desolation (Eisenwald)

Sorrow and Desolate are the names of the two players here coming from a land that really puts the downer in down under! You can tell this is not going to be a happy album but if you had already… Continue Reading →

Anomalie – Between The Light (Art Of Propaganda)

About a year ago I reviewed a debut album by Austrian group Harikiri For The Sky which was a shoe-gaze, ambient and Indie sounding take on post black metal. Marrok from that group and also Selbstentleibung has decided to pretty… Continue Reading →

An Autumn for Crippled Children – Try Not to Destroy Everything You Love (ATMF)

Are those orchids on the front cover? Isn’t this supposed to be a black metal album? What’s going on? These are all questions that would have been raised if you’ve been living in the mountains and listening to nothing but… Continue Reading →

Germ – Grief (Eisenwald)

Yes as far as germs are concerned this is probably the only one that is welcome as I am sitting coughing and spluttering away as I write this. Not that it is any less virulent when it comes to invading… Continue Reading →

Frozen Ocean – Vanviddsanger (Obscure Abhorrence Productions)

It’s always nice to get post from Russia even if in this case the package needed serious de-thawing in a warm cupboard overnight before I could get under the ice and frost and open it. This time there were two… Continue Reading →

Germ – Loss (Eisenwald)

Back around May I was literally bowled over by a debut album from Germ called ‘Wish.’ It is still very much on rotation and has not made it off the table where things get played rather than shelved, possibly never… Continue Reading →
