History is written by the victors. We are the voice of the dead. At first, I was sceptic: A band called The Committee presents a debut album entitled Power Through Unity with a cover like a propaganda poster? At once my brain produced pictures from the movie V for Vendetta, and as a trained sceptic towards any form of text I wasn’t that much impressed by the band’s statement that they had no political intentions whatsoever, but wanted to pay a tribute to all the name- and faceless dead whoRead More
Black Metal from Outer Space! Vyre is a new and promising project, founded in 2011, and KG Cypher (vox), Hedrykk (guitar), Zyan (guitar), T. Maximilian (bass), Android (drums) and Doc Faruk (Synth-Sounds) decided to bring two unusual fields together: Black Metal and science-fiction. The offspring is their debut The Initial Frontier Pt.1, and whoever interested in hard sound out of the ordinary should listen into this! A short intro and five songs, no one less than eight minutes long, awaits us on The Initial Frontier Pt. 1. It is aRead More

Sado Sathanas – Nomos Hamartia

Open up your heart and soul and get prepared for today’s huge dose of dark amusement. Sado Sathanas proudly present their newest album “Homos Hamartia”, which I will dissect for you in a short. But first lets get a little familiar with the band, shall we? Sado Sathanas originate from Germany and has spread the art of  gloom since 1996. With every release becoming more noteworthy, marking tremendous progress in their work. For the time being they have two full-lengths and one of them is due to be out – “NomosRead More
This is how it’s done in Norway! Saturday night, 1.600 kilometres away from home in Stavanger, the Folken student’s club opened its gates for a really great black metal lineup: Gehenna, Taake and 1349 were to play on the Hostile Terrortory Festival, that had unfortunately been cancelled due to almost no tickets sold. From Hell Gehenna entered the stage at 21.15h and delivered their dark and melodic sound to an eager waiting black metal audience. The rather slow riffs, the low, grim growls and ghostly screams, the absence of keyboardsRead More

Agael – Trost

Every once in a while I come across one-man bands and in the end I find myself asking the following question “How the hell could you pull out such a stunning piece of art on your own?!” I’m not gonna beat around the bush because today I’m gonna talk about Agael and his forthcoming album “Trost.” Agael is a German project that was born in 2008 falling under the category of  black metal in a sophisticated form that incorporates elements of dark ambient, post/atmospheric and doom metal. The first everRead More
I have carried out an “expedition” in search of precious winter treasures and unexpectedly found one, buried deep down beneath the ice. A gem full of power growing since 2006. A single that confirmed my expectations of a real happy new year. Frozen Dawn‘s “The Everlasting Confinement” is what you might need to warm your soul with in the cold winter nights. Incredibly well-crafted, with a mind-blowing quality and melodies that could make you break off your replay button, is the least I can share with you. Listen to “CirclesRead More

“Make them bleed, make them hurt!”

The music that is capable of making you go into different scenes, stories and experience them as if you were the main character is not a common thing. Music in representation of horror, insanity and hatred towards the living. Written in blood, recorded in shadows –  it’s time for you to enter a genial yet murdering mind. The world of  Morgul. Before doing anything else, I’d like to give an insight for those who are not familiar with the art of Morgul. Obviously a black metal band coming from theRead More
(Amiensus agreed to answer some of the questions to our guest writer Nattramn. We personally want to thank every band member for their time.) How do you describe “Restoration”? Clearly this isn’t just a black metal album, it has lots of influences. James: We typically shy away from calling ourselves black metal at all because we quickly realized (and even before we released it) that this album was… Somewhat eclectic. We are obviously very influenced by black metal but this band is about using what every band member has, talents,Read More

Neglektum – Blasphemer

Let me tell you a recipe that is capable of making your day at several clicks of the button of your mouse. The “secret” is hidden by the following keywords “swedish black metal.” I’m sure you are well aware of that, given the number of bright examples of kickass bands – Dissection, Bathory, Lord Belial, Dark Funeral, Marduk, Netherbird, Armagedda, Naglfar and many, many more – an endless list. However, today I’m gonna give you another good reason to dedicate your day to swedish black metal. In 2008, four menRead More
