Black metal is as vast as the universe itself. My mission is to prove it every time by discovering new bands and sharing them with you.

De Arte Tragoediae Divinae - totalitarian
Alright folks, it’s time to dig into July’s roundup featuring a small yet highly infectious breed of blackened material. It’s been a challenging task to narrow the suggestions down to 4 due to the lack of spare time on my hands, so without further due, let’s check them out. Anhedonic – Metanoia [Free download] Anhedonic is a newborn one-man act hailing from Oklahoma. The band’s mastermind Chase Funk describes his debut “Metanoia” as a mixture of unrelenting death metal imbued by shades of pure blackness. The EP itself consists ofRead More
Profundis Tenebrarum - Disciples Of Venomous Death
What a startling surprise! Spanish death preachers Profundis Tenebrarum are finally back with a new album after 6 years of silence! I do have a soft spot for their legacy, which resulted in a recommendation for their magnificent “Apocalypchrist” some years ago. Now, however, their 4th studio album is officially out and man, it is a successor to say the least. Bearing the somewhat cool title “Disciples of Venomous Death“, this hell of a beast packs 8 immensely brutal tracks with a total of 40 minutes dripping sickness. I’ve seen someRead More
belphegor-totenritual
Hey folks, here is a quick piece of news that I just received and couldn’t help but share immediately! I assume there is no need to present who Belphegor are, so I’m gonna cut right down to the chase. There is a fresh sneak peek taken from the band’s 11th full-length titled “Totenritual” and it sounds very promising. The video below shares an array of hell-charged rhythm guitar work that emanates nothing short but pure brutality!  Still, there are uncertainties like track list and cover artwork yet let’s not forgetRead More
Atramentvm - Theotoxin
There are days of drought, grim silence and nothingness on the horizon when it comes to discovering quality new material. However, there is that moment when out of nowhere I am literally being overwhelmed by a massive wave of awesome new bands that get better and better, putting me in a situation where I could not be able to comprehend what just happened. I believe today is that day, thus I’ve compiled this special write up featuring 4 incredible bands that are worthy of your attention at the very least.Read More
Acedia Mundi - Speculum Humanae Salvationis
Alright folks, time has been extremely short on my side, which is why I haven’t posted anything in a while. In the meantime however, I’ve been collecting material and today is the day to share it with you all. Without further due, here it goes.  Theurgia – Anti Perpetuo | Follow When it comes to Venezuela, I’ve always associated that part of the globe with their abundant brutal death metal scene. In between, though, you may find bands like Theurgia who passionately create and spread darkened art for dedicated small audiences.Read More
Ekstsis-Xthonic-Pathways / support black metal
Black metal has a wide range of qualities but the one that will always stand out is the ever growing roots of its beginning. That, which is stripped from outside influences other than pure darkness and sombre emotions residing somewhere deep down in each of us. Maybe you don’t like categories and labels but what I refer to is its traditional form and today’s recommendation pays homage to it exclusively. Meet Germany’s Ekstsis whose debut EP “Xthonic Pathways” was released last month through Obscure Abhorrence Productions. You see,  Ekstsis’ contribution is not just important.Read More
Acherontas - Amarta अमर्त (Formulas of Reptilian Unification Part II)
Acherontas is among the most prolific Hellenic bands right now, let’s face it. It’s not just about the rather massive discography they offer despite it is considered to be a relatively young band (of old souls, though). It is more about the fine breed of material which goes far beyond the art of music and explores the deep and untreaded paths leading to a world of the occult and magic.  Two years after the first chapter came under the spotlight, Acherontas have finally shed light onto their new opus “Amarta अमर्त (Formulas ofRead More

Premiere: Tod Huetet Uebel – N.A.D.A.

Recently, Caverna Abismal Records have announced yet another arrival to their roster, which deserves a special attention. If you’ve followed the Google+ updates for a while, you may remember Tod Huetet Uebel – a Portuguese black metal duo that has established quite a presence in the underground with their phenomenal works of absolute madness and nihilism. “N.A.D.A.” keeps up the so-called tradition of Tod Huetet Uebel of delving into the darkest corners of the human mind and shed light onto the most gruesome thoughts that one could ever have. Like exemplifying mental illness asRead More

Free download: Hexis – Tando Ashanti

It’s been quite some time since I rewarded you, my loyal followers with some freebies. And today is a good day to make up for the lack of free downloads lately by giving you the freshly released sophomore full-length of Copenhageners Hexis on a hot dish! The new opus is called “Tando Ashanti” whose track list unfolds into 11 songs with a total duration of 38 minutes extremely obscure blackened hardcore terrorism.  With its mind-bending atmosphere and monstrously crushing heaviness, Hexis will immerse you into a world far beyond art, beauty and allRead More
Sunshine and Lollipops - Empty (Always Look On the Dull Side) - Sunshine and Lollipops
Sunshine and Lollipops?! What’s happening in here? Before going on a rampage with me, please allow me to explain. Today’s CD presentation is by far amongst the most weirdly awesome and equally challenging pieces of material. You are going be held in awe, then driven to wild headbanging and lastly have fun. I’d like to express my special regards to Bleeding Heart Nihilist Productions for the albums below. Animo Aeger – KotzeAdel | Soundcloud | Order CD Animo Aeger is one of those bands shrouded in deep mystery that I have had the pleasureRead More
