Forgotten Tomb: …And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil

Forgotten Tomb: …And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil

One day, while looking for some depressing, suicidal, angst-spewing black metal, came across the name of Forgotten Tomb.  A tomb that is forgotten?  Does it get any more forlorn?  It would have to be both depressing and good, correct?  Yes, or make that more like yeeeeessssssss, well most of it.  …And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil marks […]

Torrid Husk: Caesious

Torrid Husk’s Caesious has every marking of mundane, and it doesn’t really make an effort to hide the fact.  The illegible, tree-like logo, the white, snowy, atmospheric artwork, it all screams ‘Weakling’, and you assume you’re most likely in for a treat of overrated black metal made by people who shouldn’t be anywhere near black […]

Czar: No One Is Alone If No One Is Alive

Jason Novak is the Rodney Dangerfield of the Chicago industrial scene. Mention Acumen Nation to most fans of either extreme metal or industrial rock, and chances are good no one’s heard of them, and if they have they, they tend to have very polarised opinions about them. This is mostly due to the fact that […]

Le Réveil Des Tropiques: S/T

Dat old lady…  Really need to get her out of the head there, please, for the love of God…  This one really makes you wonder what in the world you’re in for at first glance, coming in a bi-fold slipcase with two discs, an inner, distorted picture of some sort of resort on a beach, the […]

Zgard: Reclusion

Think about the trip this one took, it’s kind of like the album art.  Coming from the cold wastes of the Ukraine, all the way to little old us.  Think how people communicated a hundred years ago, what will they do a hundred from now?  And why in the hell are we wasting your time […]

Symptoms of Sickness: S/T

Black and doom is a beautiful combination. It’s a great medium to channel melancholy and wrath with deep, resonating growls, heart-wrenching riffs, and moments of infinite suffering. It sounds easy to accomplish but by the small number of black/doom bands out there that have become successful, it really is not. Fortunately for you, it seems […]

ism: Demo

Don’t be fooled by the powerviolence tag you’ll find on the Bandcamp page we have nicely linked below, because there’s not a bit of that in this.  So, sorry, no girlfriend-in-side-project cameos that were clearly to make sure an “evening of fun” took place, as much as you’d want that to happen.  But, hey, that’s […]

Tons: Musineè Doom Session Vol. 1

Now and then doom bands get the name right.  It’s not about the name, you say?  No, it is about the name, damn it.  None of this stupid wizard junk with fire, bong smoking, electric space-worm-riding, trip-to-the-sun-in-a-cardboard-spaceship, Jesus-in-Hell-with-the-Virgin-doing-lines-whilst-reading-The Return of the King junk that’s boring.  Sadly that was a reference to probably about two hundred […]

Černá: Restoring Life

Coming out of Kalamazoo, Michigan is Černá, a one-man instrumental, post-black metal band formed in 2011. Cody McCoy, the visionary behind Černá, is also the drummer for Death/Crust band Traitor and progressive death band Boreworm – both of which are great bands but are very unlike what he has created with Černá.   The first […]

Whores.: Clean.

Whores.: Clean.

This album is the heaviest goddamned thing to exist since that asteroid that wiped all those dumb-ass dinosaurs off the earth, presumably so this album could get made 20 million years later. You know the Moon in Majora’s Mask? The one that grimaces down at you, as it slowly approaches Termina and eventually crushes the […]
