Premiere: Blackshore – Music of the Flies

Having released the kickass record “Terror” back in 2013, German black/thrash band Blackshore kick in with a brand new EP. It bears the somewhat cool title “Music of the Flies” and has been produced by Black Skull Records in a limited (100 pieces) cassette format.  You can stream the full EP below as well as collect your physical copy via bandcamp.

The silence is over now and so are my journeys;  it’s about the right moment to present the next interesting discovery from the black metal underground. This time, however we are heading for Quebec, Canada where the newborn band Funeste hail from. In August the 11th, the duo that is formed by L. Fradet and Y. Panos are releasing their debut EP  “Le Triomphe du Charnier “, which includes four tracks of dissonant black metal harmony and eviscerating doom-like riffage that would extinguish one’s flame of life.. The digital version ofRead More

Free download: Thurm – Thurm

I have been posting updates on Google+ under the category free download leaving this page on the side, and I thought why not keep all of that content here. It’s easier to find, it won’t decay and after all, it will enrich SBM zine even more. With that being said, the first article of this kind is dedicated to a German band called Thurm whose music I just discovered by chance (one of the rare moments when I thank Facebook).  Thurm may not have a long list of records behindRead More
Swedish industrial black metal band Diabolicum has ended their 14-year slumber and re-animated their activity with an outstanding preview from their upcoming album “Ia Pazuzu (The Abyss of the Shadows).” Brutal, dirty and sickening sound that penetrates the human’s soul and infects it with an inhuman disease could be a fair description to give you before you jump into the vortex of industrial madness. Unlike their previous albums where Blackblood (frontman of Swedish death metal act Aeon) took the lead on the vocals, Niklas Kvarforth of Shining has recorded the venomous chantsRead More
Sometime ago, not sure when exactly, I shared on Google+ a track from German black metallers Krater who, in my opinion are most definitely worth to explore their possessing acts of blackness. So far, they have put out two pretty solid full-lengths (“Das Relikt des Triumphes” and “Nocebo”) and now they have announced a third one that is titled “Urere”, which continues to keep up the bestiality; a trademark for the band. Luckily, there is a track for you to listen to, so I recommend you to get prepared for aRead More
Wolves Den, a Germany-based band who, by the way took part in the SBM’s first free digital sampler, have finally released their debut full-length “Deus Vult.” You might remember them as the melodic black metal trio that is led by former Equilibrium vocalist Helge. Back in the day when they joined the horde for the compilation, there were only three tracks available, no album title announced nor cover artwork. Although, I am a little late with this piece of news given that Wolves Den released “Deus Vult” in April, amRead More

Before pointing out that I have seriously mistaken this band with a black metal one, I’m gonna say that this is an exception to the “rule.” In fact, the new album of Embrional “The Devil Inside” is blacker than the blackest stuff you might have heard of in a while, which has been carried through the relentless brutality of death metal. Check out the this wicked sick video of “Madman’s Curse” below: Follow Embrional on FacebookRead More

I have encountered a number of times when fans state that extreme metal is going nowhere and rapidly becoming pop music, as it were. Although, this topic is vast and can be discussed for ages, I would like to narrow it down by jumping right into the conclusion. In my modest opinion, extreme metal is and will be alive because there are plenty of artists to keep it up. For this article specifically, I have got the Brasilian oldschool duo Vermis Mortem who pay homage to the early stages ofRead More
