Autokrator – Hammer of the Heretics (Limited Edition Cassette)

Ready for our next ritual? Well shut up because here it is anyway. As you know, I thoroughly enjoy music that breaks boundaries and isolates me as much as possible. Enter a favorite of mine, the band Autokrator, whose debut full-length I reviewed back in 2015 only a few months after the new site launched. […]

Heir – Au Peuple de l’Abîme (Post-Suicidal Black Metal)

I swear if this label ever sends me anything bad the world is going to end that particular day. Les Acteurs de L'Ombre Productions is, again, the absolute heir of all that was the kingdom of black metal in France. Since its inception in 2009, I have never failed to be amazed by the label's output. It's the only […]

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 […]

Aluk Todolo – Voix

It's impossible to find a proper way of starting this, but others have tried, with pathetic results. Calling Aluk Todolo, direct quote, "an autistic version of Wolves in the Throne Room" is offensive.  Not to the autistic, or to Wolves in the Throne Room, but to music criticism.  That was the best you could do? […]

Regarde les Hommes Tomber – Exile

Some people consider us elusive, others bizarre and unnecessary.  Whatever we may be, we always make sure to regard the worst with the most foully derisive of language, and the best with the most confusing of personal journeys through minds that, strangely, have never touched a single narcotic.  Writers who amaze with their unusual prose […]

Déluge – Æther

Déluge – Æther

This was something long awaited, because we, as well as only a few others, realize that France is where it's happening for two genres: post-black metal and post-hardcore.  There are no equals to the power of France, and there will never be, at least not at the moment.  We've had our tastes of the greats […]

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 […]

Nyseius – De Divinatione Daemonum

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 […]

Autokrator – S/T

Autokrator – S/T

There are certain people out there giving us a wealth of idiocy to criticize, and it's great because we can still seem creative.  Let it be known that anyone who references Star Wars in a review of any metal band, unless it's a metal band with a focus on Star Wars, is a complete toolbox, […]

Plebeian Grandstand – Lowgazers

I've been out of the reviewing game for a long time and it is because of this album. My first few listens deemed this album as just a mess. I couldn't understand why anyone would enjoy it. It felt like a chaotic Japanese public orgy where everything was blurred out or covered in KY (minus the […]
