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
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
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
Blut aus Nord - Deus Salutis Meae / support black metal
When it comes to black metal that knows no boundaries, Blut aus Nord seem to appear at the top row. It is not for the atypical approach that the band makes use of when writing their material, but rather the deepness of it. Today, a new chapter follows, digging further down into a wretched human mind, namely “Deus Salutis Meae” or “God of my Salvation“.  This 10-piece full-length enters a new realm of the occult where disharmony reigns. Twisted, mind-bending and outright demented chants from figures unseen to the naked eye.Read More
De Arte Tragoediae Divinae - totalitarian
Alright folks, it’s time to dig into July’s roundup featuring a small yet highly infectious breed of blackened material. It’s been a challenging task to narrow the suggestions down to 4 due to the lack of spare time on my hands, so without further due, let’s check them out. Anhedonic – Metanoia [Free download] Anhedonic is a newborn one-man act hailing from Oklahoma. The band’s mastermind Chase Funk describes his debut “Metanoia” as a mixture of unrelenting death metal imbued by shades of pure blackness. The EP itself consists ofRead More
Profundis Tenebrarum - Disciples Of Venomous Death
What a startling surprise! Spanish death preachers Profundis Tenebrarum are finally back with a new album after 6 years of silence! I do have a soft spot for their legacy, which resulted in a recommendation for their magnificent “Apocalypchrist” some years ago. Now, however, their 4th studio album is officially out and man, it is a successor to say the least. Bearing the somewhat cool title “Disciples of Venomous Death“, this hell of a beast packs 8 immensely brutal tracks with a total of 40 minutes dripping sickness. I’ve seen someRead More
