  • Ulsect – Ulsect

    Late as usual, I bring you the review of the debut album of Ulsect, released on the 12th of May 2017. If you haven’t heard of them by now, you are definitely on the wrong train. With (ex-) members of Dodecahedron and Textures, this is not just another death metal band. These seasoned travellers in […]

  • Merrimack – Omegaphilia

    French black metallers Merrimack released their latest on the 9th of June 2017, ‘Omegaphilia’. Although not much new is brought with this release, I count it as one of the better releases of 2017 thusfar. As Omegaphilia (Season of Mist – Underground Activists) kicks off with a tribal rhythmic initiation on ‘Cauterizing Cosmos’, this French […]

  • Necrowretch – Satanic Slavery

    Necrowretch began their life at 2008. A few French youngsters who decides to take up arms and renew old pride in dirty, filthy, devilish Death Metal of the 90s and by 2011, the band already had one of the best EPs of that year out, Putrefactive Infestation. That year, before I bought the above-mentioned EP, […]

  • Alestorm – No Grave But The Sea

    It’s time to strap on your wooden leg and eyepatch, get out a bottle ‘o rum and practice your best screechy pirate voice, because the pirate metallers Alestorm have docked with their fifth full-length No Grave But The Sea. Prepare for mindnumbing sing-alongs, fantastical pirate tales, songs about taverns and predominantly drinking, all served to […]

  • Hate – Tremendum

    A few weeks ago, I was happy to find yet another album of Hate in my inbox. It has barely been two years since I reviewed their previous album Crusade:Zero and I can’t get enough of this band, so Tremendum was welcomed in this household with open arms. Hate has walked on the blackened death […]

  • Sólstafir – Berdreyminn

    The first things I heard regarding about Sólstafir‘s sixth full length Berdreyminn weren’t too convincing. The Iceland post rock formation is often accused with being too ‘hipster’, ‘too soft’, and ‘poppy’ and when the first tracks of Berdreyminn surfaced, these were the exact terms flying around. Being one of those Sólstafir enthusiasts, I couldn’t wait […]

  • Les Discrets – Predateurs

    Released on April 21st, Les Discrets (Lyon, France) released their third full-length album, Predateurs. Although very much on the edge (or actually over) of what I consider metal, the experience I had when watching them on Prophecy Fest 2016 was enough for me to pique my interest in their music. Predateurs is an aesthetically pleasing, […]

  • Warbringer – Woe To The Vanquished

    To my confession, I don’t listen much Thrash metal at home. Live shows on the other hand are another story. It’s one of the best genres to watch when played live and I’ve seen Warbringer quite some times on the stage. Therefor I was thrilled to listen to their new album because I was sure […]
