Usurpress – Ordained (LIMITED Cassette and Shirt Package)

Well, it's been some time in the making now, mainly because one of the factories we work with was taking forever to get back to us Jesus Christ.  But, that's all passed now and we're cool, we're cool.  Anyway, we've been chatting with the guys from Usurpress for several months now, after reviewing Ordained and then shortly […]

Interview with CHAOS ECHŒS (Esoteric and Arcane)

Interview with CHAOS ECHŒS (Esoteric and Arcane)

In our selection of only the finest, most bizarre, and most darkened of music, we sometimes find it pertinent to interview what we consider the best.  Those of the underground sometimes rejected by the vpper crvst for being so against the grain their skin is rubbed raw to the underlayer.  A fine film of blood […]

Altarage – Nihil

Oh how we dread our submissions, oh how we loathe the endless messages, the letters (yes some people still write those), the pages upon pages of words soon forgotten in this escapist novel we turn called email.  The density can be overwhelming, never-ending, so repetitive it's scarcely possible to give more than a moment to […]

Lychgate – An Antidote for the Glass Pill

Gawd we really needed something new, something unique, something spectacularly bizarre.  Open the curtains, lead us into a crypt musically, scribe before us with aural might a portrait of the macabre.  We seek to be transported through dark corridors dripping in mildew, to smell the dried marrow of ages of death under our feet, oh […]

Interview with Necro Deathmort (Yes We Asked About That Name)

Ugh, sometimes real life gets in our underground way Goddamn it anyway.  But enough of that, you don't even need details, you all need another one of our fine, detailed, and informative interviews, and we're not joking around.  Typically, we only ask questions of what we consider to be the finest acts that we review, stuff […]

Deathrite – Revelation of Chaos

The start of the week, the start of work, or the start of not doing work, or not getting up, or hating everything until Thursday when it all seems bright again. Until then, work, work, and work.  But if you're at work, what are you doing on this site?  That's easy to explain because you, like […]

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 […]

Adversarial – Death, Endless Nothing and the Black Knife of Nihilism

Adversarial – Death, Endless Nothing and the Black Knife of Nihilism

Well, this band has already started off on their path of adversariness with an album title that's probably going to break our system coding.  First for its length, and if that doesn't do it, then for its meaning.  Nihilism, the rejection of principles, especially moral principles or those stemming from religion, the rejection of love, […]
