777 : Across The Abyss

2017 : Urtod Void Format : Single-sided 7″ Being as inundated with what seems like a constant flash flood of new music, it’s rare that I personally get as excited for a release as I have been from this band. As a huge fan of Occult Rock from it’s beginnings with groups such as the…

Ofermod : Sol Nox

2017 : Shadow Records Format : LP/CD/Cassette The most surprising thing about the coming of a new Ofermod album was exactly how little fanfare had greeted it. Perhaps not so much upon further reflection though, as a friend had astutely pointed out that the oversaturation of the black metal market with covens of void-worshipping, qilipothic…

Dødsengel : Interequinox

2017 : Debemur Morti Productions Format : LP/CD Yes! It’s happened, a new album from Norway’s, Dødsengel.  And it’s every bit as magical as one could hope.

2017 : Poison Cult / Symphony Of Destruction Format : Cassette / CD / 7″ In today’s immediate gratification era of Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Spotify. Itunes, etc. it’s rare to “take a chance” on a band.

Eternal Champion : The Armor of Ire

2016 : No Remorse Records Format : LP / CD Cut to late teens Jeff, driving a tanker truck, working insane hours hauling water to drilling rigs in the Sahara-like heat of the West Texas oilfields. You’d get about 30 minutes of downtime with each loading and unloading of water, so most of us read.…

White Chamber : Pale Tears

2017 : Heiðrunar Myrkrunar Format : 7″ It never really went away, but with the success of projects like Survive and the Stranger Things soundtrack, bands cranking out 80’s themed, John Carpenter-esque themes are at an all time high. Take a quick gander at eBay for “vintage synths” or hell, even companies like Moog reissuing classic analog…

Wülfskol : Hellshock

2017 : Heretic Thorns Format : CD For a lot of us into “extreme metal”, the forefathers that shaped our listening habits are pretty well entrenched as legends in the overall music landscape: The Misfits, Samhain, Danzig, Motörhead, Slayer, Bathory, et al, what I guess the youngins now call Dad Rock, but fuck all of those…
