May 21st, 2017

Whoredom Rife - Whoredom RifeWhoredom Rife is the latest Black Metal buzzband coming out of the legendary Trondheim underground and they have found a fitting home on Terratur. The self-titled debut mini-album comprises four tracks, spanning 22 minutes, and is presented...

NIGHTBRINGER – TERRA DAMNATA 2LP (Season of Mist Underground Activists)

May 21st, 2017

Nightbringer - Terra DamnataNightbringer – an act I have been championing for years – delivers 52 minutes of mystical, occult-ridden, complex, chaotic Black Metal on fifth full-length, ‘Terra Damnata’, but this time I’m finding the whole experience irritating as all...

TROLLDOM – AV GUDABLOD RÖD… LP (Independent)

May 18th, 2017

Trolldom - Av Gudablod Röd...This one is from the enigmatic Ancient Records stable although, for some reason, it’s credited as an independent release rather than being attributed to either of the cult Ancient Records / Afgrundsvisioner, Mysticism Productions or Nordisk Kultur...

BESTIAL RAIDS – MASTER SATAN’S WITCHERY LP (Nuclear War Now!)

May 15th, 2017

Bestial Raids - Master Satan's WitcheryRaucous, pummeling and heavier than a hippo’s balls, Bestial Raids are all about unsophisticated, puerile, subtle-as-a-sledgehammer, bestial, warmongering Black / Death in the vein of fellow purveyors of ancient evil such as Black Witchery, Archgoat, Revenge...

PREDATORY LIGHT – PREDATORY LIGHT LP (Invictus Productions / Psychic Violence Records)

May 14th, 2017

Predatory Light – Predatory LightI was pretty sure I already reviewed Predatory Light’s split with Vorde but, seeing as I can’t find any trace of such a scribbling, I will have to reluctantly concede that I didn’t. This is about...

ORDER OF DARKNESS – VREJ LP (Altare Productions)

May 11th, 2017

Order Of Darkness - VrejRaw Black Metal has never been in ruder health and, with ‘Vrej’, the dying-earth-scouring Altare Productions has come up with another diseased gem. Order of Darkness is conceived into reality by one individual, who likes to be...

RHINOCERVS – RH-07 MLP (Final Agony Records)

May 10th, 2017

Rhinocervs - RH-07This is the third of the much-coveted and hyped Rhinocervs tapes to get the vinyl treatment and I am pretty sure there are more to come. Unleashed at the start of the year, it is limited to a...

LIBER NULL – I, THE SERPENT LP (Osmose Productions)

May 7th, 2017

Liber Null - I, The SerpentEven though it is, to all intents and purposes, shamelessly derivative and at times comes across like a poor man’s Funeral Mist / Marduk, I have to confess to really enjoying Liber Null’s debut full-length, ‘I,...

WULKANAZ – PARALYS LP (Helter Skelter)

May 5th, 2017

Wulkanaz - ParalysWulkanaz is one of those artists I can’t get enough of, so ‘Paralys’ was inevitably going to find a place in the devil’s collection.  The third full length is a fairly natural and organic progression from its rather excellent...

REBIRTH OF NEFAST – TABERNACULUM 2LP (Norma Evangelium Diaboli)

May 5th, 2017

Rebirth Of Nefast - TabernaculumRebirth Of Nefast’s sprawling debut full-length, ‘Tabernaculum’, is an intricate, complex, ambitious and utterly stunning work of art painstakingly woven into a pitch black tapestry by an individual who toiled and toiled and toiled until he could...
