Medieval Demon – Black Coven (Macabre Romantic Black Metal)

Medieval Demon – Black Coven (Macabre Romantic Black Metal)

  They have…returned. I was first made privy to Medial Demon over a year ago upon reviewing their last full-length, Arcadian Witchcraft. Mixing macabre romanticism with occult horror was a nice mix, including church organ in the instrument line-up, which lent a sound in fitting with their themes. This time around, though still carrying that […]

Amaltheia – S/T (Straight Outta Nowhere Dissonant Black Metal)

  Boy this was a tough week for promos in the sense that I received a shit ton of them over the past month. Most of those were easy to scrap because of crud art or blah sound, but a particularly fine selection came from Polish powerhouse Godz Ov War Productions. Unfortunately I can only […]

Diablery – Candles (Symphonic Greek Black Metal Mastery)

  Really didn’t feel like listening to goddamn black metal this month. Don’t know why. Probably the vast number of shitass promos I received. Banal splits. Upside crosses all over the fucking place. Pointy logos. Stupid corpsepaint whateverthefuck. Some shit about snow. Tanks or something I don’t know. Holding swords as if to assault but […]

Dødsferd – Skotos (It’s Greek Black Metal)

  Hey, it’s Greek black metal! I’m not sure what else I can say beyond that but let’s give it a try. Dødsferd is one of Greece’s oldest black metal acts, and by virtue of that fact alone they already deserve to be at the front of the cavalry charge into the riff blizzard we […]

Medieval Demon – Arcadian Witchcraft (Ancient B00bs Black Metal)

  Now here’s a band that can get people into trouble. Well, specifically me. And to be more specific it’s because many of their band photos include female booby slaves and social media doesn’t like the reality of the human body. Therefore… I mean the aesthetic is ace and somehow makes corpse paint look cool […]

On Thorns I Lay – Threnos (Melodideathdoom Lol I’m a Writer)

  I’m starting to realize Lifeforce Records has this “thing” with melodic metal bands who absolutely kill in the production and presentation. Sometimes setting a niche for yourself is good, except with pornogrind. Just let those fools have their netlabels and their weird community of drum machine, family-in-the-audience shows. So back to melodic metal, in […]

Natvre’s – Early Cvlts LIMITED EDITION Cassette

  Since Deaf Sparrow’s finances are in check, let us say, or rather, CEO has good job now yay, we can start CRAPPING OUT more stuff. For the past year I’ve been talking with Natvre’s about releasing their last album in cassette format, but job issues were keeping finances too low to pull it off. […]

Sacral Rage – Beyond Celestial Echoes (Spacey Speed)

  Lol, spacey speed, you like that? Good because we’re going to keep this trip to the stars going. Greek speed/thrash space bandits Sacral Rage I’ve only heard from whispers in the galaxy and barely a solar tendril of their sound has ever come to my ears until Beyond Celestial Echoes. The album has received […]

Ectoplasma – Cavern of Foul Unbeings (90s Skeleton Blood Pile)

Ectoplasma – Cavern of Foul Unbeings (90s Skeleton Blood Pile)

I’ve been hearing some great Greek metal as of late, and let’s add this one to the list. Actually make that sort-of. Maybe a footnote, or a parenthetical mentioning, or maybe a margin scribble. First off, that name, Ectoplasma. It’s possibly one of the greatest death metal band names ever conceived, even though they’re not […]

Tome of the Unreplenished – Innerstanding

Tome of the Unreplenished – Innerstanding

And now for something totally esoteric.  Different?  Entry-level terminology for the uninitiated.  This is different, it’s been fashioned from the most ancient of hands, a soul so old it defies the beginnings of the human race.  We kind of needed a good bit of that.  We’ve had classic black metal recently, some of the Satanic, […]
