Mare Cognitum - Phobos Monolith

One man Atmo Black 08.10.2014

If you're a serious follower of this style, you know the usual. The project of Jacob Buczarski, Mare Cognitum is raw and hard hitting black metal, but also interspersed with all those beautiful, melodic, and dreamy undercurrents that we all know and love and that've come to make this style so goddamn good when it's executed right. Highly recommended for fans of Chaos Moon, Spectral Lore, Sombres Forêts, etc. And shoutout to my buddy Fearmeister for turning me onto all the great stuff on I, Voidhanger's current roster, definitely a label worth investigating.

Pervy Perkin - Ink

Prog 17.09.2014

In the grand scheme of things this album has got one strength and one weakness. At the core of it the reason is one and the same. This album is so packed with different and great ideas, it's really becoming ridiculous. However, this also accounts for the length of the album and the lack of consistent direction in development of said ideas and thus it appears to be all over the place. High marks for the début effort and future promise, though.

Listen to the full album over at Bandcamp.

The Graviators - Motherload

Stoner Doom 03.09.2014

Old school style Sabbath/Pentagram worshippin' doom. Do I hear Jimi somewhere in the mix?

Derivative but awesome.

Striker - City Of Gold

Speed, thrash metal 27.08.2014

METAL up your arse !!!

And here I thought Striker couldn't top their 2012 release Armed To The Teeth. And then they record this one. Any fan of the genre, or those who like headbanging to the max should will enjoy City Of Gold.

Mortals - Cursed To See The Future

Sludge metal 26.08.2014

Albums like Mortals' Cursed To See The Future make an instant impact and grip you. Its sludge is dense with black metal leanings. The songs are long and perfectly structured because the transitions are smart. While there are moments of trance, it's the piercing vocals which guide you through the hostility and gloom of the music. Melodious yet aggressive, Cursed To See The Future has filth in good measure. The slimy and cavernous riffs easily lull you into the abyss.

Take the plunge!

IQ - The Road Of Bones

Light progressive rock 23.08.2014

The rhythm remains the same, as members change. IQ has always been one of those bands that fell into the medium of obscurity for me, strictly because they always played on the fringe of prog worship and never feigned actual progression. That was, until The Road of Bones.

Ethereal Riffian - Aeonian

Progressive stoner doom 23.08.2014

A forward-thinking approach to the stoner doom genre that emphasizes complex song structures and hypnotic textural riffing. Lose yourself in the vivid landscapes of Aeonian right here.



Fantom Warior - Morbid Invasion

Thrash 21.08.2014

Here's an oldie that's just been reissued and that's guaranteed to wreck some shit and stuff.

Crimson Shadows - Kings Among Men

Extreme Power Metal 17.08.2014

An unpretentious mix of DragonForce, Amon Amarth and mid-career Ensiferum.

Extreme power metal done right.

Arkona - Явь

Folk Metal 15.08.2014

It took me a few listens to let this album fully sink in, but Arkona wisely drops their light-hearted, catchy hooks to bring us an album with a much better flow and sense of focus. That doesn't mean they aren't as dynamic, progressive-minded and aggressive as ever though. These Russian folk metal giants are still on top of their game.

Blood Of The Black Owl - A Banishing Ritual

Sioux Drone 14.08.2014

The one man project of Chet W. Scott, Blood Of The Black Owl is a hypnotizing journey through foreboding sounds and monolithic landscapes. Native American themes abound, with use of wind flute and some drony, chant-like vocals to help heighten the vibe and make you feel as though you're being banished by the ritual of the album's title. This album may be four years old, but screw it: if you're down with the whole drone/dark ambient nonsense, this is definitely one you need in your life.

Begin the daze.

Into Orbit - Caverns

Post 10.08.2014

The New Zealand Duo craft some instrumental post-rock/metal goodness. Constructs and build-ups are well executed and enjoyable if standard format, but the crescendos really help make this a bi-polar bit of post-fun.
