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

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

Creptum – The Age of Darkness

Coming all the way from Sao Paolo, Brasil, Creptum is a band with a relatively long stay in the extreme music who have left a legacy of three demos so far. All of them bound by one tradition, and that is black metal done the old fashioned way. In this article, I would like to present the re-recorded release “The Age of Darkness”; an extremely limited physical edition (yet free to download on bandcamp). “The Age of Darkness” spares no time to get the listener prepared and begins with aRead More
Temple of Oblivion - Traum und Trauma / support black metal
Time to dust off the recommended albums category with another awesome record that I meant to introduce for a very long time. I present you Temple of Oblivion’s second full-length “Traum und Trauma”, which continues to immerse the listener into an intense one hour long epic black metal storytelling. Temple of Oblivion originate from Germany and unlike most of the bands who circle arond satanic themes, they took another approach in terms of their lyrics. Their scripts are inspired by legends and events that occurred in the past, interpreted inRead More
Nefastoreth - Imperium Serpentis Evangelii / support black metal
Walking down  the path to complete isolation and finding inner serenity while destroying everything human; the process of becoming a misanthropic soul has been initiated! Allow me to introduce you Nefastoreth who will take you on a journey that displays the ugly and false side of society and its idols through one of the most severe forms of black metal. Nefastoreth was conceived back in 2002 in Italy. The band has been nurtured with misanthropy ever since and that can be depicted from their past works “Shining Crown of an Ending Day”Read More
Fleshcult - Ritus / support black metal

Fleshcult – Ritus

To kick off this day properly, I have prepared for you an album that is meant to blow your mind up (literally) with an unstoppable force beyond control. Chaos, brutality and black mass – Behold Fleshcult’s debut EP Ritus! Fleshcult is a relatively newborn coven from Germany who master the art of blackened death metal, with an exceptional use of melody and technical skills, which are demonstrated in their EP “Ritus.” At first glance, it is obvious how much passion these dudes put into this record. I mean, check outRead More
triumfall_insane_vesper_demise_of_being
This is a guest-review by unholyblackmetal.com’s overlord Herjann. For the first time I want to tell you about a split, Demise of Being, released by the German label Art of Propaganda in 2013; the split is divided between two bands and contains four songs, two for each band. Well, the split starts with a prolonged drum roll, which then interweaves with guitar riffs, thus leading to a crescendo that then explodes into the main riff of “Enlightened by Blood”. It is Insane Vesper, French band formed in 2002 with a full lengthRead More
Fathomhell - KvrX / support black metal

Fathomhell – KvrX

To be honest, Spain is not one of the countries where I begin seeking for fresh blood. A bad habit or just got used to be primarily focused on the Northern scene and follow closely how things are developing there, I almost missed out on records like this one, which is kinda of a shame. Fathomhell is an incarnation of a massive anti-human assault that is meant to wipe off the living of the face of earth. In 2014, they released their second EP titled “KvrX”; a three-pieces album, oneRead More

Vyrju – Black

When it comes to Norwegian black metal, first assosiations are related to some of the most famous yet controversial bands that contributed in laying down the foundation of this genre and become a powerful source for aspiring artists. Throughout the years have been a major change and this style has been pushed further with more complexity in every manner. In this installment, I’d like to present you Vyrju, which is a Norway-based one-man band and his debut EP “Black” – a perfected version of the classic Norwegian sound, I’d say.Read More
Hegemone - Luminosity / support black metal

Hegemone – Luminosity

Today I added yet another valuable asset to my collection reconfirming that 2014 was a very yielding year for extreme metal followers. Hegemone, a post/blackened sludge metal quartet from Poland shared with me their debut album “Luminosity”, which by the way, is up for free streaming/downloading on bandcamp [follow the links below]. Let’s get into it! The concept of “Luminosity” is as broad as the music itself. It’s not to be given a description as every individual will perceive it differently while getting deeper into it. Take it like a trip towardsRead More
