Undeground epic black metallers Noctem Cursis did excite their fans a couple of days ago as they uploaded a track from their upcoming debut album “Nocturnal Frost.” At the first spin of “Les Rivages de la Mort” three main points were noticeable: Maturer sound –  A big leap forward in their work that surely makes “Nocturnal Frost” a deserving winner that tops up their EP “Wrath of Winter.” Splendid composition – Exciting melodies and epic elements mashed into one outcome to suggest a feeling that brings you closer to nature;Read More

Hryre: A promising newborn black metal act

Everytime I stumble upon an underground/newborn black metal act that kicks major ass is considered a lucky day. Today is such a day because I finally heard new & impressive stuff from the UK. To be honest it’s been a while and as one would say “it was about time!” Hryre declared their existence in early 2013. The band is represented by Rick Millington – vocals, guitar and bass, Nathan Patchett – guitar & bass, Gareth Hodgson – drums and Michael Blenkarn – keyboards (guest appearance). Yesterday the band announced their official Facebook pageRead More
Canadian Melancholia Andrew (guitar/ clean vox) and James (bass/growls) founded As Autumn Calls in 2005 and dedicated this project to epic Dark Doom. After three years of songwriting they recorded their first album, An Autumn Departure, but never released it. 2009, the EP Emotionless followed and gained attention. After drummer Darren and a second guitarist, Brendan, joined As Autumn Calls, the band singed with German Label Naturmacht Production, released An Autumn Departure and set to write the second full-length album Cold, Black & Everlasting, released in October 2013 – andRead More
One of the easiest ways to enter the infinite realms of beauty of nature is through appropriate mood setting. The right music and imagery can fuel your imagination and take you beyond your reality. As to music, “Silent Forest” serves exactly this purpose. A fascinating atmospheric/ambient black metal incarnation of nature that was carefully shaped by Forgotten Deity – a one-man project from Poland. “Silent Forest” is far away from the hateful & blasphemous themes that most bands are aiming for within the boundaries of black metal. It’s a musicalRead More
(Here comes the first guest review by UnholyBlackMetal’s in-chief editor Herjann who dissects Inexistenz’s  latest album “Erfundene Welten” In addition, the album can be streamed for free via the bandcamp player below.) With Erfundene Welten we enter the dark atmospheres of depressive black metal. The artist who created this album is called Inexistenz, a one-man band from Slovenia. B. (so he lets himself be called) started this project in 2010 and was immediately very prolific: in the same year the debut album Lebenswegcame out. The new album Erfundene Welten (‘Fictional Worlds’) dates back to 2013; it is a six track album with aRead More

Mørktår: Dark years are coming

British misanthropic act Mørktår have announced their debut album, which is entitled “Dark Years.” The band describes it shortly but clearly as a continuation of their unstoppable hatred for mankind. “Dark Years” is going to feature Mørktår’s new vocalist/lyricist Repktkor who joined forces in 2013.  So far an exact date, cover artwork and a sample are to come in time. Meanwhile, you can follow the band and listen to their previous records via the links below. Mørktår – Dark years Salure Records, release: expected in the winter of 2014, TBA FacebookRead More
Nihilistic Propaganda from Cuba To be fair: Cuba wasn’t exactly the center point of my personal Extreme Metal map – which is basically the understatement of the century: Cuba didn’t even appear on that map. Fortunately, one-man-project Narbeleth changes that with their second album A Hatred Manifesto, that is, in nuce, everything a Black Metal album should be: old school, grim, raw and as dark as night. Of course, you can see very clearly where A Hatred Manifesto comes from: for thirty minutes it screams “True Norwegian Black Metal” rightRead More
The atmospheric and progressive black metal band Skady present their new music video named “Omega” on youtube. “Omega” is from their upcoming album “When Sun Disappeared” and was created in Summer 2013 at various locations in Berlin. Meanwhile, third album “When Sun Disappeared” was recorded and mixed at Rosenquarz recordingstudio in Lübeck (Ger) in 2013. This album initiates a new era of the band and is also the beginning of a conceptual series of three albums. Note: Skady are looking for a label. Interested labels can send their mails directlyRead More

Let me elaborate. For those of you who have got a clue of edgerank, Facebook first changed its way of functioning to asssess the preferences of users and show them only the content that is relevant/interesting toRead More
