Totengeflüster – Vom Seelensterben

Lets face it, German folks have got it embeded in their DNA to make awesome black metal, pushing the boundaries all the time. I mean, you won’t be surprised if you see “stunning” and “german black metal” in the same sentence, will you? Countless bands to point at and among them is Totengeflüster – new generation symphonic black metal duo that strikes so strong from the beginning with their debut “Vom Seelensterben.” Totengeflüster is one of those bands that do everything on their own and they do know how to deliverRead 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
Library of Hellfire Gods Productions have reported that they have released the second Forefather’s album – “The Fighting Man.” The album is on vinyl and it’s a good opportunity for HQ maniacs to have it and get as much as possible from it. Take into account that it is limited to 250 pieces. You can order it through the e-mail address below and also preview it through the bandcamp player below. 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
“Simplistic, raw, northern-inspired in the vein of the 90s black metal that will remind of the good old times.” Pretty common description used especially by those who withessed the birth of an entire generation and missed that period.  Fortunately there are out there many bands who keep up the legacy of the ‘fathers’ just the way they left it, so you can rest assured – there is a lot of new oldschool delight for you . One them is Windstorm – a hellenic act that has existed since 2006 havingRead More

Nekrypteia – Αέναον Κλέος

First impression is very important no matter what we talk about. In this sense I am refering to cover artworks and their quality. In most occasions you can guess what to expect in terms of music even before listening. It might sound weird but after a number of examples, it is pretty much proven. The first thought that popped up in my mind when I saw the cover artwork of Αέναον Κλέος  was telling something like “Damn, this should be good!” But first comes first. Nekrypteia originates from Spain, Madrid, thoughRead More

Open up your heart and soul and get prepared for today’s huge dose of dark amusement. Sado Sathanas proudly present their newest album “Homos Hamartia”, which I will dissect for you in a short.

Agael – Trost

Every once in a while I come across one-man bands and in the end I find myself asking the following question “How the hell could you pull out such a stunning piece of art on your own?!” I’m not gonna beat around the bush because today I’m gonna talk about Agael and his forthcoming album “Trost.” Agael is a German project that was born in 2008 falling under the category of  black metal in a sophisticated form that incorporates elements of dark ambient, post/atmospheric and doom metal. The first everRead More
