Artist: Mountain Caller Album Title: Chronicle II: Hypergenesis Label: Church Road Records Date of Release: 26 January 2024 Would you just look at that cover art?

Vemod – The Deepening – Album Review

Artist: Vemod Album Title: The Deepening Label: Prophecy Productions Date of Release: 19 January 2024 It has taken a decade for this album to see the light of day but there’s an argument to suggest that time has little meaning in the town of Namsos, Norway.

Artist: The Ocean Album Title: Holocene Label: Pelagic Records Date of Release: 19th May 2023 I’m nothing if not stubborn.

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.

Artist: Cult Of Luna Album Title: The Long Road North Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release:  11 February 2022 I have always struggled with Cult Of Luna.

Artist: Celeste Album Title: Assassine(s) Label: Nuclear Blast Records Date of Release:  28 January 2022 Today’s review has been written courtesy of my desire to broaden my horizons a little more, and to check out something new.

SOM – The Shape Of Everything – Album Review

Artist: SOM Album Title: The Shape Of Everything Label: Pelagic Records Date of Release: 21 January 2022 Just like all music reviewers, I have my favourite labels and PR people; not to say that there are particularly any bad ones, it’s just that some will cater more to my tastes than others. As such, whenever  Continue Reading »

Toundra – Hex – Album Review

Artist: Toundra Album Title: Hex Label: InsideOut Music Date of Release: 14 January 2022 I’m officially abandoning my traditional stance that I’m not a fan of instrumental rock and metal.
