Time to fight back Facebook

You might have read on many zines and blogs about the kind of new monetary policy of our “beloved” social network Facebook.  Those guys seem to not stop surprise me with their abyssic hunger for financial capitals and do whatever it takes to brutally rip off everybody who is depended on the platform. Let me elaborate. For those of you who have got a clue of edgerank, Facebook first changed its way of functioning to asssess the preferences of users and show them only the content that is relevant/interesting toRead More

New devastating album by Wrong coming in April

A year later after releasing “Memories of Sorrow”, Spanish bringers of desolation Wrong have come back charged with more negativity than ever to continue their legacy in destruction. In April the 22nd their new album “Pessimistic Outcomes” is seeing the light of the day and it is released through Xtreem music. The album’s concept is about a world consumed by ashes, where despair, pessimism and hatred govern mankind; condemned to exist in misfortune, wandering desolate landscapes, gradually weakening until breath leaves them. “Pessimistic Outcomes” is an authentic experience that we recommend toRead More

Forefather is a viking/black metal originating from the UK and has existed since 1997.  They have 6 full-lengths upRead More
Heresiarch Seminary - Whirwind of Wild Hunt
Russian bm scene captured my attention long time ago. There are many names that shall always have a reserved place in my playlist among which are Ashen Light, Stigmatic Chorus and Black Shadow. However, as going deeper in the Russian underground, I stumbled upon a priceless treasure that happened to be recently (so to speak) released. To be honest, before hearing Whirlwind of Wild Hunt, I hadn’t heard of Heresiarch Seminary and as soon as I did, I basically added yet another Russian band to my modest fav list. TheRead More
Profundis Tenebrarum - Apocalypchrist / support black metal
We’ve all seen in the movies/books/music albums various concepts illustrating the Earth almost perished – unearthly creatures invading, catastrophic disasters, warfares and many others. What brings them together is that there is always a happy end; a triumph of the light over the dark. However, “a coin is two-sided” meaning that there is an opposite concurence of circumstances. With that being said, I am gonna dive into the timeless void of anguish where Profundis Tenebrarum drew their inspiration from and  forged the pestilential Apocalypchrist – a muSICal epitome of the grandRead More
