Belphegor – The Devils – Album Review

Artist: Belphegor Album Title: The Devils Label: Nuclear Blast Records Date of Release: 29 July 2022 In spite of the fact that I have spent many a year enjoying the nefarious sounds of the black and death metal genres, not to mention their various subgenres and offshoots, it is with a little embarrassment to declare  Continue Reading »

Abaddon Incarnate – The Wretched Sermon – Album Review

Artist: Abaddon Incarnate Album Title: The Wretched Sermon Label: Transcending Obscurity Records Date of Release: 5 August 2022 It has been a busy time of late, so I am playing serious catch-up with some reviews that I have been meaning to write.

Wake – Thought Form Descent – Album Review

Artist: Wake Album Title: Thought Form Descent Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release: 22 July 2022 Canadian band Wake have been around since 2009 but until now, they haven’t been high on my list of bands to check out, principally because they started life as a grindcore band. I like a bit of grind  Continue Reading »

Artist: Moonshade Album Title: As We Set The Skies Ablaze Label: Independent Release Date of Release: 22 July 2022 In so many ways, this has been a very tricky review to put together, but I think I have finally sorted through all my thoughts to bring it to you much later than I had hoped.  Continue Reading »

Krisiun – Mortem Solis – Album Review

Artist: Krisiun Album Title: Mortem Solis Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 29 July 2022 One thing about music that never ceases to interest me, is the way in which some artists can enjoy a long and successful career, whilst others do not, despite creating a final product that’s not a whole lot different.  Continue Reading »

Vomit Forth – Seething Malevolence – Album Review

Artist: Vomit Forth Album Title: Seething Malevolence Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 8 July 2022 We’ve all been there – you wait for someone to pass you in the supermarket, and they blank you; you’re cut up by another driver on the road; someone acts in an antisocial manner on public transport. Well,  Continue Reading »

Conjurer – Páthos – Album Review

Artist: Conjurer Album Title: Páthos Label: Nuclear Blast Date of Release: 1 July 2022 I can’t quite believe that it has been over four years since I first wrapped my ears around ‘Mire’, the debut album from UK-based metal band Conjurer. Despite being described as a sludge/post-metal outfit with strong doom leanings, I had to  Continue Reading »
