Wÿntër Ärvń – Abysses (Black Metal Folk Stuff)

Wÿntër Ärvń – Abysses (Black Metal Folk Stuff)

  A little late on this review, but I wanted to let Wÿntër Ärvń sink into my being more before I made my final decision. It was necessary, for I rarely receive folk that truly captures my attention, dark folk probably least of all. Not familiar sir, you think? Never, most of it simply fails […]

Exanimis – Marionnettiste (Orchestral Steam Punk Death Metal)

  So I was thoroughly surprised by this one and now I have a deep-seated craving for orchestral death metal with steam punk stuff going on. Not black metal, I get a bit of that, like I want more bands to do this kind of thing but perhaps it’s just too hard for the provincials, […]

Iron Flesh – Summoning the Putrid (Melodic Putridity Metal of Death)

  Now here’s some filthy garbage even an incinerator can’t purge, though I’m still thoroughly confused as to how the band actually writes their name. It’s either “IronFlesh” or “Iron Flesh” and honestly that annoys the piss out of me. But anyway for this Christmas Eve Summoning the Putrid is a nice one since it’s […]

Sainte Marie des Loups – Funérailles de feu (Italics for Emphasis French Black Metal)

  Everything about this screamed commit thyself to the flames from the second I looked at it. Bleeding eye femme with a sword? A band name that references wolves? An album about funerals in fire? A sold out (damn it) vinyl release in red/black marble with a black and white cover? I mean everything about […]

Igorrr – Very Noise (Frenetic Flesh Beast War by MEAT DEPT.)

  Caught a few words on this one here on the Spinternet, and lol, “insane” and “crazy” were just two of the choice cuts from total fools who obviously have never heard of Igorrr before, duh. It’s unlikely you haven’t heard of him, but you might be wondering why I’d bother with such a name […]

Stonecast – I Earther (I Wanter More Space Metal)

Stonecast – I Earther (I Wanter More Space Metal)

  Wow, what do you know, I was ripping on power/melodic and whatever else metal a week or so ago and here we are again. Is this the end? The artwork by Stan Decker would seem to suggest so, but I do have some kind words today, at least for Stonecast, and at least a […]

Autokrator – Hammer of the Heretics (Limited Edition Cassette)

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)

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)

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

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?
