Toundra – Das Cabinet des Dr Caligari (Inside Out/Superball)

The strange title of this album beat me at first and still does, but I do now know that it refers to a German silent horror film of the same name from 1920. A far cry from the days when… Continue Reading →

Mitochondrial Sun – S/T (Argonauta)

Niklas Sundin is one of the most prominent names in the Swedish Melodic Death Metal scene. A forefather and pioneer of the genre, most noted for being a member of the widely recognised and highly acclaimed Dark Tranquillity, he has… Continue Reading →

Blind Guardian Twilight Orchestra – Legacy Of The Dark Lands (Nuclear Blast)

Let’s face it – it had to happen! I’m just amazed it took so long. From the moment I heard the orchestral version of ‘Theatre Of Pain’ as a bonus track on Blind Guardian’s fantastic “Somewhere Far Beyond” album way… Continue Reading →

Dolore – Fantasmi (HPGD Productions)

As I am sure the record label is well aware, horror, pain, gore and death are all key ingredients of any good horror film. So too are decent direction, acting, story and scares but show me as film with everything… Continue Reading →

Psicopompo – Seven Sermons In Stone (Alien Passengers)

Delving right into the experimental underground it would not be surprising if Psicopompo was a completely new name to you as it was to me when I was asked to cover their new release ‘Seven Sermons In Stone.’ This invitation… Continue Reading →

Paolo Spaccamonti – Volume Quattro (Escape from Today)

The sleeve’s artwork tells us everything we need to know here. Paolo Spaccamonti is known as a film score composer and avant-garde musician, so I was on alert for something artistic, different and creative. The eleven pieces take us to… Continue Reading →

Sa Bruxa – From The Depths (Yoshiwara Collective)

It’s time to step into the heart of darkness. If you are timid this may well be a place to explore with caution and one that despite the minimalistic hues of the journey is one you should undertake knowing you… Continue Reading →

Radare – Der Endless Dream (Golden Antenna)

Wiesbaden. Not the most exciting place on earth. Not today, at least. Fancy, though. And rich. The German town used to be very famous for its hot springs, and for being a bathing and gambling place. It was once called… Continue Reading →

Hagazussa – A Heathen’s Curse (Lukas Feigelfeld) + OST MMMD (Antifrost)

Hagazussa – A Heathens Curse is a new film by Austrian director Lukas Feigelfeld. It came to my attention somewhat randomly as the soundtrack by MMMD (Mohammad) was sent in for review. I had never heard of director or musicians… Continue Reading →

Epica – Epica Vs Attack on Titan (Nuclear Blast)

That old saying, a tale of two halves, couldn’t be more appropriate than with Epica’s latest offering ‘Epica Vs Attack On Titan’. The foundations to the album are constructed of ultimately 4 songs, but duplicated between the 1st half being… Continue Reading →

Bodies On Everest – A National Day Of Mourning (Third I Rex)

North-west UK based trio Bodies On Everest are an intriguing group. With a name related to the highest graveyard in the world, it will come as no surprise that both the musical content and delivery lies on the doomier side… Continue Reading →
