GEVURAH – HALLELUJAH! 2LP (Profound Lore Records)

August 24th, 2016

Gevurah - Hallelujah!If for nothing else, Gevurah deserve kudos for not sticking a dumb etching on Side D. Instead, we get a 20-minute, ambient bonus track, which brings the total running time of ‘Hallelujah!’ on black wax to an...

BLACK DEVOTION – CEREMONIAL RITUALS OF DEMONIC CHAOS LP (Astral Nightmare Productions)

August 23rd, 2016

Black Devotion - Ceremonial Rituals Of Demonic Chaos

Black Devotion’s debut full-length, ‘Ceremonial Rituals Of Demonic Chaos’, is one that’s been flying well below the radar for about a year now but deserves a lot more attention than what it’s...

HOWLS OF EBB – CURSUS IMPASSE: THE PENDLOMIC VOWS LP (Nuclear War Now! Productions)

August 20th, 2016

Howls of Ebb - Cursus Impasse The Pendlomic VowsSometimes the easiest reviews to write are also the most difficult ones. ‘Cursus Impasse: The Pendlomic Vows’ is a staggering album but it is so complex, ambitious and out there that...

August 20th, 2016

Ellorsith Mannveira - Ellorsith MannveiraFantastic stuff here courtesy of two proper underground acts – Ellorsith from Canada and Mannveira from Iceland. The former offer another conceptual piece of work, this time centred around the story of Jerome of Sandy...

DROWNING THE LIGHT – FROM THE ABYSS 2LP (Obscure Abhorrence Productions)

August 19th, 2016

DTL - From The AbyssHaving bought all twelve previous Drowning The Light full-lengths – as well as quite a few of the countless splits, EPs and demos – I have been deeply disappointed by the so-called music...

YELLOW EYES – SICK WITH BLOOM LP (Gilead Media)

July 14th, 2016

Yellow Eyes - Sick With BloomYellow Eyes returns with another full-length of shrill, unmistakably US Black Metal and ‘Sick With Bloom’ is every bit as accomplished as what precedes it....

INFERNAL CURSE – APOCALIPSIS LP (Iron Bonehead Productions)

July 13th, 2016

Infernal Curse - ApocalipsisInfernal Curse’s second full-length, ‘Apocalipsis’, surfaced on vinyl earlier this year and it’s a heady brew indeed, laden with pummeling, primitive, bestial Death Metal and a dark, oppressive Black Metal vibe that places it somewhere between Revenge and...

BEHEXEN – THE POISONOUS PATH 2LP (Debemur Morti Productions)

June 13th, 2016

Behexen - The Poisonous PathBehexen belongs in the pantheon of Black Metal greats. What a motley crew of cunts that would be! Consistently brilliant over the course of five full-lengths, they may have...

SLIDHR – SPIT OF THE APOSTATE MLP (Terratur Possessions)

April 29th, 2016

Slidhr - Spit Of The ApostateIt’s a real shame that ‘Spit Of The Apostate’ is a mini-album and not a full-length. The record is given the works, with a gatefold jacket and poster included, and it sounds fucking immense. But it’s...
