Totengeflüster – Vom Seelensterben

Lets face it, German folks have got it embeded in their DNA to make awesome black metal, pushing the boundaries all the time. I mean, you won’t be surprised if you see “stunning” and “german black metal” in the same sentence, will you? Countless bands to point at and among them is Totengeflüster – new generation symphonic black metal duo that strikes so strong from the beginning with their debut “Vom Seelensterben.” Totengeflüster is one of those bands that do everything on their own and they do know how to deliverRead More

New devastating album by Wrong coming in April

A year later after releasing “Memories of Sorrow”, Spanish bringers of desolation Wrong have come back charged with more negativity than ever to continue their legacy in destruction. In April the 22nd their new album “Pessimistic Outcomes” is seeing the light of the day and it is released through Xtreem music. The album’s concept is about a world consumed by ashes, where despair, pessimism and hatred govern mankind; condemned to exist in misfortune, wandering desolate landscapes, gradually weakening until breath leaves them. “Pessimistic Outcomes” is an authentic experience that we recommend toRead More
Library of Hellfire Gods Productions have reported that they have released the second Forefather’s album – “The Fighting Man.” The album is on vinyl and it’s a good opportunity for HQ maniacs to have it and get as much as possible from it. Take into account that it is limited to 250 pieces. You can order it through the e-mail address below and also preview it through the bandcamp player below. Forefather is a viking/black metal originating from the UK and has existed since 1997.  They have 6 full-lengths upRead More
Once upon a midnight dreary … I’ve always had a soft spot for French Black Metal. I just love this totally obscure stuff they produced back in the Nineties, and I also like those endlessly depressing, doomy Sounds a lot of French bands have nowadays – it really helps when the sun comes penetrate my being. Mortis Mutilati is a one-man-project of Moonreichs Macabre that came to its unholy life in 2011. Since then, Macabre has been very productive, so Nameless Here For Evermore already is the second full-length albumRead More
Heresiarch Seminary - Whirwind of Wild Hunt
Russian bm scene captured my attention long time ago. There are many names that shall always have a reserved place in my playlist among which are Ashen Light, Stigmatic Chorus and Black Shadow. However, as going deeper in the Russian underground, I stumbled upon a priceless treasure that happened to be recently (so to speak) released. To be honest, before hearing Whirlwind of Wild Hunt, I hadn’t heard of Heresiarch Seminary and as soon as I did, I basically added yet another Russian band to my modest fav list. TheRead More
Bloody Music There’s more science fiction in Black Metal! After the ingenious Vyre debut album The Initial Frontier Pt. 1 proved successfully that these two genres have some things in common, Karlsruhe-based Lyfthrasyrs third album The Engineered Flesh dives deep into the dark abyss of dystopian hard sf, creating a rather unsettling vision of our near future. Unlike their colleagues, Lyfthrasyr stay on solid ground, will say: on Earth, and give their attention to a subject that could become reality faster than you might think: nanotechnology in all its shades,Read More
Profundis Tenebrarum - Apocalypchrist / support black metal
We’ve all seen in the movies/books/music albums various concepts illustrating the Earth almost perished – unearthly creatures invading, catastrophic disasters, warfares and many others. What brings them together is that there is always a happy end; a triumph of the light over the dark. However, “a coin is two-sided” meaning that there is an opposite concurence of circumstances. With that being said, I am gonna dive into the timeless void of anguish where Profundis Tenebrarum drew their inspiration from and  forged the pestilential Apocalypchrist – a muSICal epitome of the grandRead More
“Simplistic, raw, northern-inspired in the vein of the 90s black metal that will remind of the good old times.” Pretty common description used especially by those who withessed the birth of an entire generation and missed that period.  Fortunately there are out there many bands who keep up the legacy of the ‘fathers’ just the way they left it, so you can rest assured – there is a lot of new oldschool delight for you . One them is Windstorm – a hellenic act that has existed since 2006 havingRead More
