Orphans of Dusk – Revenant

Ah, Solitude Productions, what good can't we say?  Without wasting too much time, it's enough to simply state that when you see the logo or hear the name, you know it has to do with doom metal.  Hypnotic Dirge Records, hey, what can't we say about them as well?  Though not known strictly for doom, […]

Windbruch – No Stars, Only Full Dark

There has been a lot of bullshit coming out of Russia lately - Russian military missiles, caviar, Putin's pubes, Putin's dumb fucking face, Putin's sad, wimpy dick, Putin's pungent asshole, etc,.. Fortunately for everyone not in Russia, there is good news; Russia can produce good music from time to time and Windbruch's No Stars, Only Full […]

Epitimia – (Un)reality

Double CD's are a hard thing to tackle not only because the length is twice as long but because the artist often has a much broader, more complete vision of their project.  Like many Hypnotic Dirge artists before them, Epitima have attempted to experiment with black metal with many other non-metal genres such as trip […]

Odradek Room: Bardo. Relative reality

No no no, we didn't improperly write the title, that's how it appears verbatim on the album cover, so give us a break.  We don't correct grammar and syntax errors of bands if they're being "artistic" for us.  Especially if they assist us with their knowledge, explaining the meaning of the Tibetan word 'bardo' on which […]

Lycanthia: Oligarchy

Sometimes we kind of have this "thing" for Gothic metal, especially of the black variety, or perhaps with a touch of "the doom" for extra thickness.  When properly combined these things create  a tragic beast.  It's the kind of thing denied by God as something which may exist, the kind of thing that gets you […]

Netra: Sørbyen

Why the delay in the Sparrow reviews?  Are those guys a bunch of lazy punks around here or what?  Get with it.  In our defense, blame this album.  Sørbyen is one of the strangest things we've ever received, and that's saying a ton because we're used to it weird around here.  But Netra has crossed […]
