Autarkh – Form in Motion

When you are a fan of Dodecahedron (Tilburg, NL) the project of Michel Nienhuis and co-conspirators named Autarkh shouldn’t be unknown to you. Dodecahedron unfortunately is no more. However, out of the ashes Autarkh has risen, and the result of their first spawn “Form in Motion” is a combination of extreme/experimental Metal combined with loads […]

Marras – Endtime Sermon

Black Metal and Finland has always been a good combination. Thinking of Sargeist, Horna, Azaghal and loads of other projects, darkness seems to be oozing out of this Scandinavian country. Marras might not ring any hooves but with “Endtime Sermon” it might just open the door for this band to creep in or out of […]

Dödsrit – Mortail Coil

France has produced and continues to produce top notch black metal for years now. While Seide is not necessarily new to the French black metal scene, they are getting recognition on an international […]

Seth – La Morsure du Christ

I have a lot of fond memories regarding Seth; listening to it when I was discovering Black Metal. Together in the car with one of my best friends….riding to Amsterdam visiting Gothic parties and listening to Black Metal along the way (you know who you are matey ;)). With old gems such as Les Blessure […]

Saille – V

I’ve grown quite fond of Saille. Ever since their debut “Irreversible Decay” the keyboard laced Black Metal has been a great supplier of Metal for my eardrums. With V this is also the case but I can’t help having a few remarks. When I listen to Saille I expect to have a full tapestry of […]

Helleruin – War Upon Man

You might have remembered that I was looking forward towards the full length of Helleruin a few months ago? Well here it is! New Era Productions gave me a physical copy and after more than a few spins the review is now available for you… If you are looking for an intro please look up […]
