Reviews for Lamp of Murmuur - Heir of Ecliptical Romanticism

Insane album from a band I never get tired of. This guy is extremely talented, and this album shows it perfectly. The strongest point of this album is the guitar riffs. They are insanely good and ...

Reviews for Blasphemerection - Orgy of Witches

An album of semi-professional quality, but in truth an amazing way of mixing black metal and death metal, violent riffs and an atrociously violent voice, the influence of the band Belphegor is ...

Reviews for Fides Inversa - Historia Nocturna

Fides Inversa's first album was a milestone in Black Metal history, although a forgotten and underrated one at that! The second album was a bit of a step down compared to the first, but it was still ...

Reviews for Kommodus - Kommodus

The self-titled Kommodus album is a different animal compared to the previous demos released. The riffs are much more thrashy and catchy, and the production is much more crisp (well, crisp for Raw ...

Reviews for Kvaen - The Funeral Pyre

How can a band sound like so many different eras of metal in just one release?! You can find lots of 80s Speed Metal influences (like Agent Steel), and even some of the 2000s Black/Speed influences ...

Reviews for Bütcher (BEL) - 666 Goats Carry My Chariot

Apart from pretentious album titles, Bütcher has so far been a very consistent band. Their first album was a badass riff festival, but it was a bit too primitive and uninspired at some points. ...

Reviews for Markgraf - Markgraf

Arghhhhh! It's albums like this that give us hope! You can't kill the underground when bands like this exist! If you take the mad dramatic vocals of King Diamond, and mix it with the gritty, ...

Reviews for Slutet - Love & Beauty

After releasing a bunch of extremely obscure, psychedelic influenced demos, Slutet finally released their debut last year. Although most people regard this as an Avant-garde release, I find this album ...

Reviews for Sorcier des Glaces - Un Monde de Glace et de Sang

I was a huge fan of "Moonrise in Total Darkness", and some songs on the first album (like "L'Éternelle Majesté des Montagnes" and "Onward into the Crystal Snows"). They somehow captured ...

Reviews for Wayfarer - A Romance with Violence

After the excellent "World's Blood" released back in 2018, I was eager to hear the follow-up for that album with high anticipation. And although this album showed a bit of a shift away from the ...

Reviews for Armnatt - Dense Fog

26 minutes and 8 seconds, it is enough to (re) affirm the trio from Tavira as one of the ex-libris of Portuguese Black Metal. Armnatt's music lives on (apparent) simplicity. “In what ...
