Königreichssaal – Psalmen ‘O’ Delirium (Irreligious Medieval Blackened Doom)

Königreichssaal – Psalmen ‘O’ Delirium (Irreligious Medieval Blackened Doom)

  Poland keeps pressing creativity to the limits of metal, let me tell you, case in point Königreichssaal. I could start with a number of things, but let me begin with the fact that the bassist is in his sixties and possibly the father of one of the younger chaps within this unholy trio. Why […]

Stuporous – Asylum’s Lament (Grandiloquent Gothic Doom)

  Ready to get stupefied? Ready to feel stupid? Well this Dutch blackened doom outfit, Stuporous, will leave you feeling just such a way. Uncertain, confused, not smart enough, overwhelmed perhaps, but certainly interested. It took me a few listens to really feel what these multi-instrument masters were doing, but I still felt stupid listening […]

Winds of Tragedy – Hating Life (Splendid Chilean Blackened Doom Metal)

  I really wasn’t expecting anything from this one. Winds of Tragedy? Album titled Hating Life? Get over yourself son. That’s all I could think. You see that doom thing and words like that, with sadgurl on the cover, and you’re ready to puke (not in a good way). Yep, here we go with this… […]

Charnel Altar – Abatement of the Sun (Vile, Life-Ruining Blackened Death Doom)

  Well here’s an album that will turn you into a godforsaken, lowest form of scum. I mean this is just some of the most disgusting shit I’ve heard in awhile. Total garbage liquid. Total vomit feces. Total bile clot. That’s about what Charnel Altar’s latest rot pile is, something like that. Abatement of the […]

Headshrinker – Callous Indifference (Real Mental Health Blackened Death Doom)

  Now here’s an approach we could use more of: an empathetic, but not pathetic, consideration of mental illness. Not as an “oh so very scary crazy person” aesthetic, but one trapped in loneliness, depression, and all that good stuff that makes people creative in their desire for an escape from their own physical prison. […]

Můra – Doom Invocations and Narcotic Rituals (Opium Addicted Death Doom)

  Lol these filthy shits. I can’t remember the last time I reviewed a Czech band but I’m not going to bother to look because these guys are all that matter at the moment. I often wish blackened metal, of any attached genre, would just slow the hell down now and then. Really does it […]

Rites of Daath – Doom Spirit Emanation (Sweet, Painful Blackened Death Doom)

  I was originally going to pass on this simply because I didn’t get to it in time, but upon further consideration of how freaking absolutely awesome it is I couldn’t ignore my musically stabbed heart. I swear I don’t support Godz Ov War Productions in a secret side-deal, it just so happens this is […]

Worm – Gloomlord (Soul-Sloughing Doom)

  You know you’re in for something different with this cover; it’s one of those that makes your eyes wander for hours until the details wrap around your head and constrict. Worm avoid all popularity. Their presence is thin at most and hidden in Internet fog, and more importantly their music’s a miasma that oozes […]
