VI – De Praestigiis Angelorum

VI – De Praestigiis Angelorum

Well we had fun this week posting a bunch of stupid crap on Facebook to see how social media works.  Our conclusion?  It's fueled by utter stupidity.  As the activity climbed, we realized the most boring of us are more interested in crap memes and stupid, catchy phrases, which honestly we kind of took and […]

Tetragrammacide – Typhonian Wormholes: Indecipherable Anti-Structural Formulæ

We've had our sampling of the bizarre in the past year, especially that which can be deemed genre-bending, chaotically forged, is-this-reality metal.  We're living in a world of chaos these days, so perhaps it's all a symbol of the collapse of the human race, a look into the future when eventually everything is meaningless and […]

Valdur – Pathetic Scum

Black metal is often easy to grasp, thematically speaking, as soon as you look at a cover.  Ever hear that old mantra about tanks, or as they call them typically, panzers?  If thou see a tank on the cover, be warned, for it does not deliver the crushing explosions expected.  Well, visually speaking, this one […]

Nevoa – The Absence of Void

Before I begin, I want to go out and say that if you're going to ask me to review your album or whatever, I would very much appreciate it you - I don't know, gave me the album? I've had a few people message me over the last few weeks about reviews and I want […]

Ur Draugr – With Hunger Undying

I don't know if anyone consistently follows or reads my reviews but if you have been, you'll notice that most have been very positive. Unfortunately, I don't often bother with bands I'm unfamiliar with unless Stan sends them my way (and I like the genre). So in an effort to review a band I've never […]

Reverie – Bliss

Sometimes you have to wonder who selects the genre tags on Encyclopaedia Metallum.  Is it the bands themselves or some random fools?  Seriously, we'd like to know, because we've never had to do such a thing ourselves, so not knowing we'd like an explanation.  The primary reason is it often seems so very wrong upon […]

Howls of Ebb – The Marrow Veil

It's quite likely, if you're reading this or have been here before, that you're a weirdo.  That's how people usually end up at Deaf Sparrow, or at least checking out the things we cover, whether or not they pay attention to us in particular.  The underground is filled with total weirdos, people on the outskirts […]

Blaze of Perdition – Near Death Revelations

Blaze of Perdition – Near Death Revelations

It's always tragic when a band has to experience death, not simply screaming about it or symbolizing it via music.  When real death hits anyone, how to cope?  Finding life in those ashes can be difficult for most, nearly impossible for others, if possible at all.  For music it can be a total tragedy.  Certain […]

Nyseius – De Divinatione Daemonum

You know what good black metal has and often lacks?  Atmosphere.  Every year this guy right here (editor) pulls out Transilvanian [sic] Hunger not for the vocals, not for the incessant drumming, but for those guitars.  They flow like brittle snow around cold rocks in a chasm, and it just makes this time of year […]

Nechochwen – Heart of Akamon

Alas, after many, many years... They have returned. I had a dream - a dream where I was able to effortlessly roam the internet in search of greater music. I came across three trials. The first was finding a way to acquire good music. I tried Pandora, Last.fm, and Myspace genres (I was young and […]
