Premiere: Hukutus – Oksitosiini

Hukutus is a Finnish collective that I’ve had the pleasure to follow along since 2016 and today, it reached a significant milestone. The band has officially inked a deal with My Fate Music who are going to release their debut album titled “Oksitosiini“. Here is what they say about it: Chasing the soma-dragon, only to capture a dose of oxytocin. This is no narrative, it’s a bundle of wayward paths – towards dead-ends, into forsaken shrines, from the sham of gnosis, into empty darkness, to reach a hated tomb. ARead More
Uada - Cult of a Dying Sun band / support black metal
I’ve just come to a fresh upload on Eisenwald’s official Youtube channel, which premieres a track from Uada’s upcoming new album. It’s been around 2 years in the making and “Cult of a Dying Sun” is finally set for an official release in late May. Other than that, there are no more particular details except for the fact that there will be a track list of 7 pieces and a slightly changed lineup; Brent Boutte from Helleborus steps in as the drummer and Edward Halpin of Sjukdom on the bass. Read More

Morgul / support black metal
If you are a Morgul fanboy like me, you will most likely react with an excessively loud “fuck yeah” after this news. Seriously, I’ve been waiting for Jack D. Ripper to return to active mode over a decade and that has finally been confirmed. His kind wife managing the band’s Facebook page has shared a post that a new album is on the way. Moreover, there is already a track that gives a taste of what’s coming, so you can check it out below. As of now, there are noRead More

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

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
