Pure Abysmal Hatred: Amnutseba – Demo II

What a pleasant surprise, I must say! Amnutseba is one of those bands that would literally make you pop your eyes out immediately after you hit the play button. The band has shared their second untitled demo with me, which made question a few times what the heck was going on. And that, in the most positive manner, mind you! The French band is entirely shrouded in mystery except for the fact that their legacy comes down to 2 offerings; one of which I’d like to plague you with today.Read More
Ascension - Under Ether / support black metal
What an unexpected piece of news that hit me so hard that I had to share it! Let me be honest here, after “The Dead of the World” came to be, I was both turned on yet slightly off for a good reason. Ascension did raise the bars very high with their debut and the sophomore opus was like a step backwards, in my point of view. Still, I had my hopes for the new opus and today, I’d like to share a first glimpse of its manifestation. Behold “Under Ether“!Read More
Youtube Angry Rant / support black metal
Some of you might probably remember that I used to manage a Youtube account where I obviously promoted the bands that I like. Simple as that! The sole purpose of it was to create yet another channel to fuel more attention towards worthy underground bands and their respective labels. Slowly but surely, the channel was steadily growing and the overall response to the contents was more than positive. Until that dark day came and my ambition was literally eviscerated by a bunch of fucking corporate bastards! …some people will alwaysRead More
Celestia - Aetherra / support black metal

Did You Know that Celestia Reformed?

I personally didn’t. Furthermore, it turns out that Celestia has unleashed a full-length after 7 years of silence! How about that? Even though, I am just 2 months fallen behind this news, I couldn’t resist from spreading the word about it.  “Aetherra“, the band’s 4th major release brings 10 songs of infectious melancholy and dark romanticism on a hot dish. I haven’t had that much time to go in-depth and fully explore this release inside out, mind you. However, judging by what I heard so far, I definitely recommend to letRead More
Reverence interview / support black metal
Alright folks, here is a very interesting and vitally important interview, which I had with I. Luciferia of Reverence. A band whose sound is extremely tough to define as it goes beyond any limitations resulting into a twisted experimental form of black metal. Without further due, here we go: 1. It’s been over 5 years since “The Asthenic Ascension” saw the light of day. How are the things going in the Reverence camp? Things have grown rather quiet since our last album, there were some problems with our line-up whichRead More
Cepheide's top 5 extreme metal albums of 2017 / support black metal
First of all, thank you Lifelover for offering me to write this article even though it’s a pretty unusual endeavour for me. Given how prolific the current scene is, I think it’s impossible to choose only 5 albums for 2017. I will, however, do my best to pick a few releases that I enjoyed, in order of influence of each band’s discography on me – keeping in mind that 2016 was extremely rich, seeing releases from Iskandr, Hope Drone, Furia, Unru, Bolzer, The Arrival Of Satan, just to name aRead More
Lord of Pagathorn - Daimono Philia / support black metal
Lord of Pagathorn is one of those Finnish bands that seem to stay deeply in the shadows. Even though the band’s lifespan leads back to 1992 having a number of releases, they never really showed up under the spotlight. Frankly, I love that because it makes you work your way in order to find such a previous legacy as theirs. Anyway, 4 years after their debut “Nekros Philia“ came out, the trio returns with full force, meaning new year and a new album. It is very exciting for me toRead More
cien - fate / blitz interview support black metal
Alright folks, I think it has been way too long since the last time I held an interview. To make up for that, I invited one of my personal favourites, namely Cień for a blitz session. They share with us details about their latest full-length titled “Fate“, which you can stream in its entirety below. Before stepping further, make sure to follow the band on Facebook.  1. Concept G. (guitar&vocals): We made an assumption that „Fate” would in some way refer to the previous album “Ecce Homo” but without duplicating it. Actually,Read More
Harakiri for the Sky - Arson / Support Black Metal
Alright folks, much has been going on primarily off SBM headquarters, which resulted in a significantly reduced amount of updates. Nevertheless, I am trying as much as I can to bridge the gaps and deliver some of the sweetest stuff out there, like a sneak peek from Harakiri for the Sky’s upcoming album. A few days ago I received an email presenting a marvelous lyric video titled “You Are The Scars”, which is taken off of the band’s upcoming opus “Arson“.  Harakiri for the Sky has established quite an influential presenceRead More
The Negation - A Prayer for those I will Have to Kill
Dangerous, infectious and outright brutal. I guess, this description will fit perfectly The Negation and their short but rather annihilating discography. A new music video to their sophomore full-length “Memento Mori” has been unleashed recently, which is called “A Prayer for those I will Have to Kill”.  Despite the fact that the album itself dates back to 2015, this music video presents yet another side of the band, which sheds light on their rich vision. A very refreshing and thoughtful way to bring you back and blast the hell outRead More
