  • Auðn – Farvegir Fyrndar

    Auðn

    If Iceland is known for one thing – besides beautifully bleak landscapes and its residents’ healthy hankering for fermented shark meat – it’s unique music. From Björk to Sigur Rós and from Sólstafir to Skálmöld, many Icelandic bands have an unmistakable auditory trademark that jumps right out at you on first listen. That’s not to […]

    Gaerea - Gaerea

    The self titled EP (released in 2016 by Everlasting Spew Records) of Portugese (post) black metal formation Gaerea ended upon my desk quite randomly, yet I’m happy it did.

  • Enslaved – E Review

    Enslaved - E

    Enslaved, a band that is perhaps the most condensed version of Norwegian metal, have made it all: black, Viking and progressive metal. Putting a style to their latest releases (Axioma Ethica Odini, RIITTIIR and In Times) is bit beyond me, the genre Enslaved (to) Metal should be introduced here. With E, the (co) flag bearers […]
