Reviews for Blutrache (FIN) - Marsch Zu Neuen Zeitaltern

Blutrache was one of Werwolf's many projects that didn't pass the demo level and broke up immediately with only one release, but what a release! What a forgotten gem! Like many of the early Finnish ...

Reviews for Kat (POL) - 666

666

When people think of the first wave of Black M, they mostly remember the obvious names, and some raw Thrash Metal albums from Germany, Brazil or the United States (well, not for that many U.S. Bands, ...

Reviews for Malokarpatan - Stridžie Dni

Malokarpatan are arguably the best example of the Eastern-European "obscure music" revival that's been happening in the past few years. It's not that difficult to realize that these guys were obsessed ...

Reviews for Vlad Tepes - Morte Lune

Argh! Vlad Tepes always had problems with the production, but good God this is on a whole different level. How can a microphone / recorder be this bad?! It's a shame, since this final demo showcases ...

Reviews for Vlad Tepes - Dans Notre Chute

Well, in my previous reviews for other Vlad tepes releases, I talked about the general aspects of the band and its releases. Like the previous stuff, the biggest problem here is the production. You ...

Reviews for Vlad Tepes - Into Frosty Madness

When I first listened to the War Funeral March demo, I never thought "boy, I wish they made a more brutal and even rawer version of this!", but it turns out they had a thought like that. So, they ...

Reviews for Vlad Tepes - Black Legions Metal (Les Legions Noires)

Most tribute albums are mediocre at best. The biggest problem with tribute / cover albums is that they perform songs from the favourite bands from their youth (that you've probably heard before), and ...

Reviews for Vlad Tepes - Celtic Poetry

As most of these demos by Vlad Tepes are very similar to each other and contain different rehearsals/recordings of the same couple of songs, I won't write a full review for all of them. Furthermore, ...

Reviews for Vlad Tepes - The Return of the Unweeping

If you wanted to make a list for the Top 4 Vlad Tepes songs, you would probably end up with these 4 songs here! Great riffage, badass vocals, with a fantastic cold, desolate atmosphere. If you like ...

Reviews for Vlad Tepes - War Funeral March

The French Raw Black Metal bands of the 90s are one of the most influential acts in the development of this genre and the Depressive Suicidal bands of the 2000s. Bands like Mütiilation, Belketre, ...

Reviews for Vargnatt (DEU) - Grausammler

After the legendary 90s, the Scandinavian Gods of the genre started to fall apart and lose most of their appeal (for me at least!). That's where the German Black Metal scene came to the ...

Reviews for Narjahanam / نار جهنم - وما خفي كان أعظم (The Tip of the Iceberg)

Unlike the previous release by this band, which had a very raw, deep, gritty production, this album has a more cleaner approach, and the symphonic/oriental parts are way heavier, making it feel almost ...

Reviews for Selvhat - Gjennom Mørket Famlende

Reviews for Burzum - From the Depths of Darkness

Reviews for Akvan / اكوان - شکوه فراموش شده (Forgotten Glory)
