Heaume Mortal’s debut album Solstices is a monolithic slab of blackened doom, one which unveils more and more dark delights as you listen to it. Getting to know this sterling piece of work is a pleasure, and I heartily recommend taking the time to explore it.

The main artist behind this project is Guillaume Morlat, so let’s find out a bit more about what makes him and Heaume Mortal tick… Continue reading

Interview with Contrarian 2019

Contrarian are a personal favourite of mine in the realms of progressive/technical death metal. Bridging the old-school and the new by taking strengths from both, their albums – and new platter Their Worm Never Dies in particular – are very much worth your time.

Guitarist Jim Tasikas tells us more… Continue reading

Downfall of Gaia’s recently released fifth opus Ethic of Radical Finitude has rapidly become one of my favourites of 2019 already. It’s a very strong album of post-black metal and I implore you to spend some time with it.

Guitarist/vocalist Dominik Goncalves dos Reis gave me some more information about the process that saw the creation of the album… Continue reading

The latest Revocation album – The Outer Ones – is probably my favourite thing that the band have released. Upping both the progressive and death metal components of Revocation’s sound, the album is as monstrous as its album cover.

The Cauldron and the Cross – the second album from UK heavy metallers Seven Sisters – is definitely one of the more notable traditional metal releases that has seen the light of day this year.

The band’s guitarist – Graeme Farmer – answered some of my questions, so take the time to get to know this band a bit better… Continue reading

Interview with Anaal Nathrakh

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

Interview with Draghkar

Ever since I first heard the band’s debut demo I’ve been a big fan of Draghkar. In a wide ocean of faceless death metal here is a band that stands out, and seem to be improving with every release. Draghkar’s latest is a full EP named The Endless Howling Abyss. Make sure you grab a copy when it’s released on July 27th, as it’s pretty damn killer.

Guitarist/vocalist BW was kind enough to give us a lot more information on the band and its history, so have a read of his thoughtful and comprehensive replies to my queries below… Continue reading
