From the depths: Martrod, Prosternatur and Yith

You see, there are times when you cannot put on hold good news. The pressure is so high that the only relief lies into sharing the word with those who dare to know. In today’s From the depths installment, I have collected yet another 3 outstanding bands (Martrod, Prosternatur and Yith) that will give you shivers down the spine at the very least.

In today’s morning ritual, I am going to share a 3-way premiere along with free downloads! Morte Incandescente If you haven’t pinned Portugal in order toRead More

From the depths: Faunus, Lutece and Odraza

New three bands deriving from the depths of the mirky underground have been brought to your attention and this time unlike the previous installment, they are quite various sound and concept wise. I must point out that this is the 11th edition of the series, so if you are not familiar with the rest of the episodes, make sure to click HERE.     Faunus Faunus was conceived in 2015 in Greece where increasingly quality bands are emerging and make not only me but other fans of the genre keep anRead More
New episode of  From the depths is here paying homage to 3 completely and utterly mindblowing bands who seem to be also very underrated. I initially planned to make this installment entirely dedicated to the atmospheric sub-genre but earlier today I got surprised by some awesome news from Godz ov War Productions and the plans changed immediately. They have provided an access to one of their upcoming releases, which kind of “broke the atmospheric symmetry” that I was aiming for but nevertheless, I am sure you’ll appreciate the unplanned additionRead More

Divine Blasphemy Starting with the Hellenic act Divine Blasphemy, whose work is what I could define as fierce unholy incantations, there’s just nothing more to expect than oldschool alike black fuckingRead More

The number of bands that are worthy to be included in From the depths exceeds the capacity of this zine. This is one of the conclusions I came to as I keep discovering so many black metal treasures on a daily basis that it’s not possible to collect them all at once and pay them the well deserved attention. Nevertheless, slowly but surely, this pool of underground bands has expanded once more with yet another batch of three names that captured my attention. Check them below. Kosmos Kosmos is aRead More
