Abstracter: Tomb of Feathers

This is a really cool album title, but unfortunately Tomb of Feathers is only an almost cool album.  That sounds a lot more harsh than it actually was to us, so please, continue to read.  Don't stop now, it is your destiny.  Abstracter is a progressive black metal band from out of California.  With all of […]

Mors Sonat: Comforts in Atrocity

Crucial Blast rarely, and we mean rarely, releases anything that isn't good.  Plus, he's like a one-man machine that combines several genres into his label, not to mention having one of the best mail order catalogs in the world with stuff from pretty much everywhere.  One of his fortes is noise, and though we had […]

Wreck of the Hesperus: Light Rotting Out

Anyone who doesn't enjoy this album and pretends to understand depressing funeral doom is full of crap.  So full of crap.  We're talking like your DNA is literally crap if you say such a thing.  Your parents were no better than the C.H.U.D. that spews the bile-ridden sewage that led to there actually being a […]

Den Saakaldte: Faen i Helvete

Do you guys like oatmeal? Because this review is oatmeal based. Oatmeal is great because of all the varieties of food that it can be mixed with such as berries, peanut butter, yogurt, jelly, cinnamon, protein powders, etc,.. Black metal is oatmeal and this bowl has been prepared by Den Saakaldte with their album, Faen […]

Aenaon Interview

One of the best parts about working on this site is the ability to find and speak to new musicians every day. The embarrassing fan-boy moments that involve blushing, stuttering, excessive worship, and the musical boner that no nip and tuck can conceal are avoided through email and I can present myself as not a loser with some […]

Pensées Nocturnes: Nom d’une Pipe!

Pensées Nocturnes: Nom d’une Pipe!

Black metal is arguably the best subgenre to do absolutely weird shit in. The dark, blasphemous nature is a great medium to allow musicians to experiment in scary and bizarre ways.  Bands such as Deathspell Omega, Sigh, Transcending Bizarre?, and Thy Catalfalque dominate with experimentation and pushing the limits of black metal. Pensees Nocturnes is […]

Secrets of the Sky Interview

  The best part of reviewing metal bands is finding gems here and there that help define and refine your taste in music. Secrets of the Sky with their album, To Sail Black Waters, has become an essential part of my winter playlist. With a little under 3,000 "Likes" on Facebook, they are still relatively underground but […]

Regarde les Hommes Tomber: S/T

Here we go again, time to get redundant up in this.  French hardcore, especially of the post variety, dominates.  It's one of the most atmospheric, creative, and musically confrontational hotbeds in the modern scene.  We were first enlightened on this subject several years ago, and since then have been continually enlightened, endlessly enlightened.  We're so […]

Secrets of the Sky: To Sail Black Waters

As a rule of thumb, bands that include any form of the word 'sky' are avoided as experience has dictated that many end up being "risecore" quality bullshit metal with high school quality lyrics about played-out emotional dramas that no one gives two shits about. For whatever reason, Secrets of the Sky was given a […]
