Fides Inversa – Historia Nocturna (WTC)

Fides Inversa have carved a credible black metal niche – a line in raging odes to demonic, adversarial forces that has blended the band into the darkest underbelly of the genre despite issuing only a couple of releases over the… Continue Reading →

Acherontas – Psychic Death – The Shattering Of Perceptions (Agonia)

Stalwarts of mysticism and Hellenic blackness Acherontas should really need no introduction to the initiated. Led with unswerving passion by V Priest since formation in 2007 they have a plethora of releases to their name and ‘Psychic Death’ sees them… Continue Reading →

Nox Formulae – Drakon Darshan Satan (Dark Descent)

And so the sound of song birds bounced around the forests, the scent of verdant, leaf-strewn soils drifting high into the pristine woodland canopy just as…. The clawed hand of Satan ripped through the fabric of reality and a single,… Continue Reading →

Haxandraok – KI SI KIL UD DA KAR RA (Van)

Sometimes I watch bands live or hear a song or record and just think ‘what is the point in this?’ Truthfully, I find a disdain for anything that isn’t trying to at least tread some new ground, even if that… Continue Reading →

Crimson Moon – Mors Vincit Omnia (Debemur Morti)

Yes, of course, death conquers all. It’s good to remind oneself of that fact now and again. Death is the great equalizer and life is precious only because there is death constantly hanging above it. What you do with your… Continue Reading →

Shibalba – Stars Al-Med Hum (Agonia)

This here is a collaboration between Greek and Swedish luminaries from Acherontas and Nastrond. Being on Agonia you expect a degree of class and seriousness and it certainly doesn’t disappoint in that respect; there’s a deep, lush production here which… Continue Reading →

Acherontas – Faustian Ethos (Agonia)

Acherontas still struggle to shake off a questionable legacy (not helped by calling your previous outfit after a concentration camp) but nonetheless have managed to position themselves at the centre of the occult black metal movement with an output that… Continue Reading →

Heretic Cult Redeemer – Kelevsma (Shadow Records / Regain Records)

I had all but forgotten about Greek mob Heretic Cult Redeemer until desperately trying to find space in black metal towers (ie my CD racking) and attempting to fit the recent Hermóðr album in them, when their debut came tumbling… Continue Reading →

Lychgate – The Contagion In Nine Steps (Blood Music)

It is time to crawl through the Lychgate and enter a graveyard of ghoulish and macabre sounds once more. Be prepared for the weird, wonderful and downright ghastly sounds from a portal to another world to confront you in all… Continue Reading →

Acherontas – Amarta (Formulas of Reptilian Unification Part II) (World Terror Committee)

Penetrating the increasingly esoteric world of Acherontas V Priest and his various collaborators is becoming a bit of an adventure – albeit one that is bleak and unforgiving. The outfit undoubtedly made its initial impact with some impressive occult-driven black… Continue Reading →

Shibalba – Psychostasis – Death of Khat (Agonia Records)

Shibalba’s ambient and meditative dark trance is, in their words, intended to “guide the subconscious of the individual to dream beyond the skin of matter & to dream in ecstasy and exult”. Overtly inspired by the East, there are Tibetan… Continue Reading →

Inferno – Gnosis Kardias (Of Transcension and Involution) (W.T.C. Productions)

This album has one of those titles that I look at and think “load of old cobblers.” I mean some bands do really pile on the mystical pseudo claptrap don’t they? I want to be able to listen to music… Continue Reading →
