Inquisition - Bloodshed Across The Empyrean Altar Beyond The Celestial Zenith

Black 01.09.2016

Apparently the band has read on the internet that their vocals are ridiculously annoying and acted on that. They managed to craft a lot of great music too.



Hammers Of Misfortune - Dead Revolution

Progressive 23.08.2016

Intelligent, expansive, diverse. Engaging, intriguing, inspired. If these six adjectives appeal to you, give this album a chance.

Thrawsunblat - Metachthonia

Blackened folk, I guess 10.08.2016

Far from flawless, but still probably the best folk metal album of the last few months.



Flotsam And Jetsam - Flotsam And Jetsam

Thrash, finally 26.05.2016

Simply put, the best thrash album of this year so far.



Graves At Sea - The Curse That Is

Doom/Sludge 02.04.2016

While oppressively heavy and quite abrasive, Graves At Sea manage to remain catchy and subtly melodic at the same time. If doom and sludge are your thing, this album is a must. Even if they aren't, listen anyway.

Hands Of Despair - Bereft

Progressive Death/Black? 10.02.2016

Five years later, these guys are as good as before (or the one guy who is the mastermind behind this project), or perhaps even better. "Bereft" is so varied, that it should satisfy fans of quite a few metal genres.

Ahab - The Boats Of The Glen Carrig

Duh, doom. 02.09.2015

Ahab are constantly evolving . Every album adds something new to their repertoire. In this (theoretically) confined genre Ahab always finds another way to surprise us, another direction towards which to push the genre. The Boats of the Glen Carrig might be the most brilliant facet of this gem that is Ahab.

Tribulation - The Children Of The Night

Oh well. 28.04.2015

Perhaps less proggy, definitely less death metal-ly, definitely more concise. Definitely brilliant. Don't miss this gem.

Overkill - White Devil Armory

Need you ask? 18.07.2014

New Overkill. Same old shit 3rd time in a row. I wish more bands recorded the same old shit 3 times in a row to such good effect. Screw modern copycats, listen to real thrash. Yeah, I know. Broken record syndrome - I always bash new thrash bands and praise Overkill. Judging by the quality of Overkill's recent output, it's not likely to change any time soon. Sue me.

Vader - Tibi Et Igni

Death metal 31.05.2014

The most varied and adventurous Vader album. I didn't think they could surprise me, but they did, and I've been a fan since 1990...

Domains - Sinister Ceremonies

Death metal 09.04.2014

The death metal album of the year was released on the first day of 2014. I knew that the moment I listened to the first song off the album. Do yourself a favour and LISTEN

Gamma Ray - Empire Of The Undead

Power metal, what else. 02.04.2014

I lost faith in power metal many years ago. An exhausted genre that is going nowhere. But at least some veterans still know how to play it

Fungoid Stream - Prehuman Shapes

For want of a better name, funeral doom 09.03.2014

One of the most original and cryptic doom bands, no doubt. The new album, as hard as it is to get, is at least on a par with their previous releases.



Vanden Plas - Chronicles Of The Immortals: Netherworld (Path 1)

As usual 02.03.2014

If you know the band, you know what to expect. And you won't be disappointed. Chances are, you'll be amazed.

Manii - Kollaps

Atmospheric Black 23.02.2014

Cold and distant, depressive and haunting, desolate and gloomy. Very well done. If you remember the first Manes album, you'll more or less know what to expect, but with much better production and musicianship. A mandatory listen for fans of black metal that bets on atmosphere as opposed to speed.
