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

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

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

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 / support black metal

Posted On May 10, 2015By LifeloverIn Albums, Oldschool/Traditional

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

Posted On March 8, 2015By LifeloverIn Black-Death/Doom/Funeral

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
