Helde - Suaren Gerizpea / support black metal

Helde – Suaren Gerizpea

It’s not the first time I said that time is too short because if I could just have all the awesome albums that came out in 2015, I would have had to move out to a new and significantly bigger place than the one that I am currently writing these words in. I had to pick the last album to recommend for this year and it was tough… So fucking tough! Anyway, I had to do it special and I think you’ll appreciate it because this installment is dedicated toRead More
Lychgate - An Antidote for the Glass Pill / support black metal
The rise of what is to become an omnipresent entity; of genious and consuming madness. Let me start with a foreword. This year has been exceptional because I have been honored to follow the development of a massive manifestation of evolvement and progress in what many old-fashioned folks claim that is “dead” for a long time. Black metal has reached another level of supremacy that is far beyond the surface and it transformed in what could serve as a source of invaluable knowledge and inspiration for people willing to loseRead More

Moonreich – Pillars of Detest

When both musical and visual artwork of utmost quality collide, a big bang results in massive proportions and one of the causers for such spectacular happenings is once again Les Acteurs de l’Ombre Productions from France.  This French label introduced to me several bands that took part in SBM sampler vol. 2 and in today’s installment, I would like to present you one of them – the mighty Moonreich. If there’s one thing that I already know for sure about Les Acteurs de l’Ombre Productions, their trademark is experimental black metal andRead More
Hegeroth - Three Emperors Triangle / support black metal

Hegeroth – Three Emperors’ Triangle

Returning to the Polish lands once more for yet another ride through the mirky corners of the underground where I’ve been welcomed by Hegeroth; a new discovery, which is in the vein of melodic and symphonic black metal of the 90’s. Hegeroth was established in 2010 and it is currently maintaining a complete lineup of 6 musicians that are all bound by one purpose; to create black fucking metal! I was granted with an opportunity to go through their debut album “Three Emperors’ Triangle”; a relatively short one given itsRead More
Cień - Ecce Homo / support black metal

Posted On November 15, 2015By LifeloverIn Albums, Melancholic/Depressive

Cień – Ecce Homo

The season of the dead known as Winter is on the way to take over and the opressive greyness is about to consume the light, the colors and turn all this into depressive silence. Drawing a picture with such words would not be enough but fortunately, I have found the perfect black metal album that can do it instead of me. Cień (means “shadow” in Polish) might be familiar to some of you because they are part of SBM sampler vol. 2 (check it out HERE). The moment I found aboutRead More
Inquisitor - Clinamen Episteme / support black metal

Inquisitor – Clinamen | Episteme

Blessed are those who submerge into heedless existence Forgotten Path zine, a very underground and as of now quite respected by me institution, has not only given voice of countless bands on paper, but also tried their chances in expanding as a record label. They have put up a stage, so to speak, for one band in particular that has brought me multiple eargasms and turned me into a devoted fan of their work at once. The Lithuanian quartet Inquisitor has been the newest treasure that I have dug upRead More
Hercyn - Dust and Ages / support black metal

Hercyn – Dust and Ages

Almost 1 year after covering the amazing demo “Magda” and the split “All This Suffering Is Not Enough”, New Jearsey-based act Hercyn marked their solemn autumn return with their brand new debut album that I am very honored to present now. Despite setting the bars high with their successful start, this band demonstrates once again top-notch quality and originality through “Dust and Ages”; they managed to push their own limits much further and that’s what I call a real masterpiece! “Dust and Ages” is the sound of the dying Autumn. ItRead More
Fjorsvartnir - Mzoraxc Forbandelse / support black metal

Fjorsvartnir – Mzoraxc’ Forbandelse

Apart from the beautiful landscapes that Scandinavia has to offer to a world explorer, there is one hidden (for the majority of people who don’t get it) treasure that hovers up in the Northern sky and illuminates the frostbitten soil. Only a legion of chosen people who are all bound by one fundamental thing possess its powers; they all bear its flaming gifts that give birth to a generation of inspirational music that spans across the whole world and fascinates fans for years. This installment is no tourist guide whatsoeverRead More

Angelscourge – Seraph Impaler

Beware! Finland is on fire! With these words, I would like to start the first album recommendation after the long pause on this section with the only purpose of stressing that you are about to listen to some real badass stuff! Some of you who have downloaded the second installment of SBM’s sampler might have spotted their name in the list. Anyway, Angelscourge hail from Turku and their existence can be traced back to 2012 when they brought to this world their first ever demo “In the Realm of theRead More
Zorormr – Corpvs Hermeticum / support black metal

Posted On June 15, 2015By LifeloverIn Albums, Symphonic/Melodic

Zorormr – Corpvs Hermeticum

It’s the first time to touch on the work of the Polish record label Via Nocturna who presented for me this year’s black metal release by Zorormr  – “Corpvs Hermeticum”; an excellent melodic black metal incarnation from Poland. Let me tell you a few more words about it. “The lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of the understanding.” – The Kybalion Firstly, Zorormr appears to be a one-man project that is represented by Moloch. “Corpvs Hermeticum” is the 3rd full-length (recorded with session members Mike Wead: lead stringsRead More
