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 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 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 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 ...

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 ...
