If you like the Avant-garde sound of bands like Oranssi Pazuzu or Deathspell Omega, you might find this album very interesting. Be advised tough, you may fail to find the appeal of this album on the ...

Reviews for Falkenbach - Åsa

The first two Falkenbach albums were incredibly unique, and essential in continuation of the Pagan Black Metal sound that Bathory created between "Blood Fire Death" (1988) and "Hammerheart" (1990). ...

Reviews for Slaughter (CAN) - Strappado

Slaughter was one of the most underrated acts related to the first wave / 80s Black Metal scene. Most people remember this band as Chuck Schuldiner's first band (he did contribute in the early days of ...

Reviews for Vorum - Current Mouth

Vorum was a short-lived project from the Åland Islands which released three releases overall. The first two attempts were very much Incantation, early Autopsy worship all the way, and had little ...

Reviews for Archgoat - The Light-Devouring Darkness

One of the most brutal Black Metal albums ever made. Awesome riffs and vocals, with some satanic atmosphere that I love. The strong point is really the vocals in my opinion, they are brutal, creepy, ...

Reviews for New Light Choir - Volume II

Most experimental Black Metal acts try and take the genre further and further into the future. This album somehow manages the opposite of that, by taking the genre to a long time ago when Black Metal ...

Reviews for Arma - Metal Punk Attack

Well, as you may know, the origin of Black Metal was rooted in Venom's Motörhead Speed Metal worship, and Motörhead was heavily influenced by the punk bands, so it's not a very original idea ...

Reviews for Infernal Curse - The End upon Us

Bestial Black Metal / War Metal is probably the most primitive and obscure type of Black or Death Metal. It becomes more obscure if the band in question is from more troubled parts of the world. Here ...

Reviews for Abysmal Lord - Storms of Unholy Black Mass

Reviews for Verberis - Vastitas

The Black/Death formula that existed since the late 80s is probably one of the most over the top and extreme forms of Extreme Metal in general. These New Zealand boys started to add some more ...

Reviews for Immortal - Northern Chaos Gods

Reviews for Morbid Panzer - Only the Total Death

The combination of Thrash Metal and Black Metal existed right from the early 80s. These genres co-existed in the times of Venom's proto-Thrash days and beyond. When these two started to be separated ...
