Reviews for Balrog (BLR) - On the Throne of Demolition

Despite the fact that the Belarusian Black Metal scene is really underground, they still have some pretty good bands, and Balrog is one of them. Balrog is not a band that I would listen to everyday, ...

Reviews for DSS - Satanic Sounds of the Sorcerer
Best U.S. Black Metal albums

DSS

The latest demo by the NJ based Blackened Speed Metal worshippers DSS is by far the most accomplished one. After the somewhat weird production on their previous demo, they perfected their sound on ...

Recently, as a result of a recommendation, I came across a compilation album called "New Jersey Metal Attack Vol. 1" which was a split between some unknown bands from NJ. Although I liked the overall ...

Reviews for Repugnant - Epitome of Darkness

Even though the nature of Swedish Death Metal of the 90s is quite debatable (most famously, the Norwegian Black Metal scene started as a protest against it!), I still beleive that it's a very ...

Reviews for Departure Chandelier - Antichrist Rise to Power

A good Black Metal album from a pretty good band from my country, but this is not necessarily an album that I will listen to every day, honestly, because the bad points of this one are big and drop ...

Reviews for Spectral Wound - A Diabolic Thirst

The best album of 2021 so far in my opinion. Like always, Spectral Wound give us some insane music. Let's start with the good points. Firstly, the riffs of this album are really good. A great ...

Reviews for Panopticon - ...and Again into the Light

Mixing Atmospheric Black Metal with Americana is not a new thing, and you can even say that it's USA's biggest Metal export of the post-2000s! Among big names like Agalloch or Wolves in the Throne ...

Reviews for Darkthrone - Eternal Hails......

What can be said about Darkthrone that hasn't been said already? They were the Kings of Black Metal in the 90s, and made a huge impact on all of the future Black Metal bands to come. Their "A Blaze in ...

Reviews for Sinira - The Everlorn

Sinira is a one-man Melodic Black Metal band hailing from Texas. After releasing a decent demo, he started to tease us with some singles of this, his debut album. The single "Where Starlight Does Not ...

Reviews for Drudkh - Їм часто сниться капіж (They Often See Dreams About the Spring)

Unlike the previous Drudkh album, which was a throwback to the old school Drudkh sound, this, their latest, does seem to be going in a completely different direction. It's much shorter than the ...

Reviews for Drudkh - Борозна обірвалася (A Furrow Cut Short)

Reviews for Slaughter Lord - Thrash 'til Death

Reviews for Ninkharsag - The Dread March of Solemn Gods

Many people slam this band (or indeed any slightly Melodic band!) for sounding like the mighty Dissection, but I think that's like slamming someone because they look too much like George Clooney! ...

The second (and last) Mefisto release, continued in the same vein as the first demo. A very unique and obscure Thrash Metal sound inspired by the old Gods like Bathory, Kreator, Sodom and so on and ...
