Dictator – Dysangelist (Aesthetic Death)

Having recently explored the new, with the cracking debut album from Voz De Nenhum ‘Sublimation’ it is time to delve right back to the past of one of the musicians from it, Dictator. This is a one man project from… Continue Reading →

10:13 – Result Of An Iron Age (Unclebaby Records)

This unknown quantity one man band generously arrived in CD form at Ave Noctum towers. Neil Carter is the man behind it and according to the blurb it it’s a depressive musical journey into humanity’s descent into a horrifying post-apocalyptic… Continue Reading →

Istina – Revelation Of Unknown (S/R)

Or to give this it’s native title Истина – Откровение Неизвестности. Well I had a case of deja-vu when this turned up from Russia and did not have a clue what I had in front of me but on playing… Continue Reading →

Empty – Vacio (Osmose)

I remembered Spanish band Empty not by their name which is hardly remarkable but by the cover art to their third album The House Of Funerary Hymns which certainly caught my attention on release in 2009 with its spooky imagery… Continue Reading →

Vardan – Unholy Lightless Summer (Moribund)

And here we have Vardan back yet again and doing things somewhat differently. This is an album of him being jolly and seasonal covering favourite songs for this time of year. We have interpretations of Mungo Jerry’s ‘In The Summertime,’… Continue Reading →

Nortt – Endelight (Avantgarde Music)

It seems that this year there has been no shortage of kvlt edge-lords thinking it is clever releasing albums over the festering period. It’s not like most of them will find their way into the few remaining record shops around… Continue Reading →

Deinonychus – Ode To Acts Of Murder, Dystopia And Suicide (My Kingdom Music)

What a delightful album title, fair warms the cockles and caresses the soul. Well at least someone looking to buy a loved one a present this festering season can’t be excused for making a mistake and it could be given… Continue Reading →

Vardan – Nostalgia: Archive Of Failures I-III (Moribund)

“Bloody Vardan,” are words I found myself muttering a lot in 2015. It seemed like every time I reviewed one of the Sicilian artist’s albums another turned up almost immediately and to say he is prolific would be an understatement… Continue Reading →

Chaos Moon – Amissum (Hellthrasher)

Alex Poole is one busy chap. I’ve only recently reviewed his second Skaphe album and still not entirely recovered from it and now this turns up. He’s also busy with Esoterica, Krieg and Lithotome too so there is no shortage… Continue Reading →

Moon – Render Of The Veils (Moribund)

It’s all too easy for the kind of semi-ambient black metal that Aussie one-man-band Moon exhibits to melt into the grey and white landscapes from whence it came like static on a stormy night. Take some harsh guitars, repetitive riffs,… Continue Reading →

Vardan – Between Fog And Shadows (Moribund)

I am really beginning to lose track here. This appears to be the fifth Moribund released Vardan album I have reviewed this year but looking into things a little further the Sicilian workhorse has gone and sneaked out a couple… Continue Reading →

Horla / Wytchfilth – Split (S/R)

My first question on discovering that both these one man black metal bands hail from Norwich was what would Alan think if he encountered them to play on the local radio show? I tried to find a suitable quote from… Continue Reading →
