Reviews for Fuath (GBR) - II

II

Fuath is another solo project from the same man behind Saor (formerly Àrsaidh), a name which has become quite prominent in recent years in atmospheric-folky Black Metal circles, and deservedly ...

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 ...

Reviews for Mulla - مَوْلَى

Even though the Middle East has always been a troubled region, one thing's for sure; No country has ever encountered worse atrocities and hardships than Iraq. Since the 70s they have been in wars with ...

Reviews for Fuath (GBR) - II

If you love Soar, then you should listen to this album! Fuath is the second project of the person who is behind Soar, namely Andy, from the UK. This album has dynamic drums, melancholic riffs and ...

Reviews for Impaled Nazarene - Eight Headed Serpent

Impaled Nazarene is one of my all time favourite bands. Mika is probably my favorite Black Metal vocalist ever. Even when the album is a bit weak, his vocal performance never disappoints me one bit. ...

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 Odium Totus - In Inceptum Finis Est

Influenced by and risen from the ashes of old school 90s USBM bands like Profanatica, Accursed, Judas Iscariot and perhaps more obviously Grand Belial's Key, Odium Totus started to add some of the ...

Reviews for War//Plague (USA) [α] - Into the Depths

After such stellar releases such as "Carrion" and "On a Darker Dawn", my expectations for the next full-length were huge. I can't say that I'm disappointed, but on this album they seem to be ...

Reviews for War//Plague (USA) [α] - On a Darker Dawn

Most people don't like Crust Punk thanks to some of the weaker, more famous efforts like Darkthrone's Crust trilogy, or the shitty Extreme Noise Terror albums! But that's not fair! There were some ...

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 ...

Good album by an awesome band that has a lot of good points and bad points at the same time. The good points about this album are the riffs, and the insane vocals by Ash. There is a lot of emotion ...

Reviews for Mortuary Drape - Spiritual Independence

After the somewhat weird and controversial sound on their previous album, "Buried in Time", Mortuary Drape decided to ditch the experimental metalcore-y bullshit and return to their roots. The result ...

Reviews for Ritual Death - 2016 EP

The debut Ritual Death release is a very weird release indeed! The noise/ambient interludes and layers scattered all over the EP give the album a haunting atmosphere. The vocals and guitar parts ...

Reviews for Put / Путь - Песни смерти

Let's get something clear from the beginning; I'm not a fan of this so-called Post-Black Metal. I like some post-rock bands, but the idea of Post-Black Metal is a bit silly in my opinion, since it ...

Reviews for Nordreich - Verschlungene Pfade

Reviews for Infernö (NOR) - Utter Hell

Even though the idea of mixing the badass thrashy riffs with the more obscure sounds existed since the 80s, with bands such as Sabbat, it wasn't until the mid 1990s where the term "Black/Thrash" ...
