Reviews for Këkht Aräkh - Pale Swordsman

As one can guess from the sole member's name (Crying Orc), this band is another among the thousands of Old School melancholic, monotone Black Metal bands that worship Burzum, and the myriads of bands ...

Reviews for Helleruin - War upon Man

After releasing some promising EPs and demos, Helleruin finally released their awaited debut earlier this year. The final result was pretty much as anyone can expect after listening to the EPs and ...

Reviews for Stormruler - Under the Burning Eclipse

I encountered this album on YouTube and immediately assumed that this was a Swedish band. When I checked out their Metal-Archives page I was a bit shocked to find out that this is actually a band ...

Reviews for Ancient Mastery - The Chosen One

Based on a recommendation, I had the pleasure (or displeasure!) of listening to this band's debut full-length (titled "Chapter One: Across the Mountains of the Drämmarskol") a while back. ...

Reviews for Forteresse - Thèmes pour la Rébellion

Years ago, I came across this band's debut album, "Métal Noir Québécois", and I absolutely loved the old school 90s sound on it. I especially liked the way they created this old ...

Reviews for Forteresse - Thèmes pour la Rébellion

A pure masterpiece, this is what this album is. I have never heard something like this before. The first time I listened to this, I was shocked. I was like, how is it possible to make something this ...

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 Wayfarer - World's Blood

In my previous reviews for the first two Wayfarer albums, I mentioned that this is one of the best albums that captured the essence of great U.S. Atmospheric Black Metal bands, such as ...

Reviews for Wayfarer - Old Souls

The second Wayfarer album pretty much continues where the debut left off. The lyrical themes, the vocals, the rhythm section, are all pretty much the same as before, however; there are some minor ...

Reviews for Varde - Asgaardsreien

Varde is sort of a Black Metal mini-supergroup, formed in 2017 (well, two of the three members were session musicians for some well-known bands, such as Tvangeste and Dødheimsgard). Alright, ...

Reviews for Dark Funeral - Where Shadows Forever Reign

Reviews for The Ruins of Beverast - Rain upon the Impure

I'm going to be honest, this album is good, but it is overrated a lot and, in my personal opinion, it is far from being the best black metal album. I'm going to explain you why I think ...

Reviews for Portal - Avow

Portal was one of the major influencers of expressionistic guitar techniques used in Death Metal of the 2000s and 2010s (this experimental approach can be compared to that of Deathspell Omega). ...

Reviews for Obskuritatem - Hronika iz Mraka

You don't need a PhD to understand the music of Obskuritatem on any of their releases. It's very primitive, very raw, very ugly, with a huge amount of feelings attached to it. Their previous albums ...

Reviews for Abigor - Totschläger (A Saintslayer's Songbook)

You can't talk about Austrian Black Metal without mentioning the name "ABIGOR"! This band is arguably one of the first pioneers of the more technical side of Black Metal that we have today. Their 90s ...

Reviews for Fuath (GBR) - II

I was a big fan of the first Àrsaidh album, and the 2016 Saor album was a fine album indeed. I didn't much dig the first Fuath album though, it was too "melodic" for my taste! After seeing ...
