Another month, another slew of quality metal releases. September has been a good one, so let’s take a look at some of the albums that really caught my attention. Continue reading
A New Kind of Horror is rapidly becoming one of my most-played Anaal Nathrakh albums, and that’s with some stiff competition to go up against from the rest of their impressive discography. In my humble opinion the band’s latest album is definitely one of their best.
Dave Hunt, the band’s impressively intense vocalist, was kind enough to answer some of my questions… Continue reading
Apparently this is a rerecording of the band’s 2016 release Blackbound, with added vocals, and other differences. I was totally unfamiliar with Second to Sun’s work prior to listening to The Black, so I can’t comment on how this relates to Blackbound, other than to say that it does. Continue reading
This is nasty, raw and nihilistic music that wants nothing more than to terrify, scar and demoralise the listener. With a mix of Nails, Anaal Nathrakh, Hooded Menace, Aborted, Trap Them, Extreme Noise Terror, Primitive Man, Zao, and many others in their sound, Sunlight’s Bane have concocted an identity that’s very much their own and quite a hard one to accurately classify, if you care about such things.

This is the follow up to 2014’s Desideratum. Continuing their slow-burning evolution of merging the underground filthy side of black metal with something altogether more modern and epic in scope, The Whole of the Law is their Continue reading
Due to the name of this band I was expecting short, punky, excrement-filled black metal lasting probably no longer than about 20 minutes. What we actually get is a full 60 minutes of hate-powered misanthropy and perversion, courtesy of these blackened maniacs.
This is ugly music that the band manage to stretch out Continue reading
Now this is an interesting release.
0N0 combine the industrial, death metal and doom genres together, creating an album that has aspects of all weaved into its genes.
How to classify this? Well, extreme metal is the easy cop out, and as these things don’t ultimately matter that much, I suppose that will do. Industrial death/doom is more specific, of course, but there we are.
Think of the something like Continue reading
As soon as I press play my attention is hooked by what blares out of the speakers. It’s scything, sharp Black Metal with a tight sound and enough frosted melodies and dark aggression to cut deep into the most jaded of hearts.
