Earth Rot – Black Tides of Obscurity (Season of Mist)

Eternity – To Become the Great Beast (Soulseller)

Belzebubs – Pantheon Of The Nightside Gods (Century Media)

I’ve been waiting for this album for months, after all, I have been a fan of the band for more than 2 years now, after starting to read their adventures on http://belzebubsofficial.tumblr.com before finally getting to watch the “Blackened Call”… Continue Reading →

Abyssic – High The Memory (Osmose Productions)

What’s going to make this review weird for me, is that there are only 5 songs, but the album is nearly an hour and a half long, with a couple songs over 20 minutes and the shortest approaching 9, meaning… Continue Reading →
