Handful Of Hate – Adversus (Code666)

This Italian black metal outfit has had a fairly steady release rate since the debut in 1997, with a new aural sacrifice being offered up every few years though this latest has taken six years to come out since 2013’s… Continue Reading →

Voidhanger – Dark Days of the Soul (Agonia Records)

I don’t know why it is that Polish death metal vocalists have the raucous tone of people who have indulged in large quantities of vodka and spent their time in smoke-filled rooms, but Voidhanger’s Warcrimer is the archetype of the… Continue Reading →

Absque Cor – Wędrówkę haniebnie zakończyć (Godz Ov War)

Pardon, you what? Yep metal often helps with learning about language and first up its Latin time and Absque Cor which translates I believe to ‘without heart.’ That’s a misnomer though as there is plenty of heart on display on… Continue Reading →

Furia – Księżyc milczy luty (Pagan Records)

I am only a recent convert to the cult of Furia having 1st heard the Polish band with last album Nocel on its re-release. It was an incredibly complex album and once it started it never let up with a… Continue Reading →

There’s been a real buzz about this album and I got to the party a little late due to the fact I mixed up things where the promo was coming from (slightly understandable as it’s being release via Godz ov… Continue Reading →

Furia – Nocel (Pagan Records)

When reviewing Dayal Patterson’s The Cult Never Dies Volume 1 recently I commented about the fact that there were quite a few of the original Polish black metal bands that I had not really heard. This band Furia although only… Continue Reading →

Voidhanger – Working Class Misanthropy (Pagan Records)

With members of Massemord, Iperyt and Infernal War in this trio’s ranks I was well aware this one was going to deliver a right Polish battering. What with the title ‘Working Class Misanthropy: Of Rapture And Disgust’ (to give it… 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 →

Seagulls Insane and Swans Deceased Mining Out the Void – S/T (Witching Hour)

There’s nothing like a short, snappy band name and album title that rolls gently off the tongue to attract readers’ attention, right? It may seem a tad pretentious, and I think this duo used up all their vocabulary naming the… Continue Reading →
