Vyrju – Black

When it comes to Norwegian black metal, first assosiations are related to some of the most famous yet controversial bands that contributed in laying down the foundation of this genre and become a powerful source for aspiring artists. Throughout the years have been a major change and this style has been pushed further with more complexity in every manner. In this installment, I’d like to present you Vyrju, which is a Norway-based one-man band and his debut EP “Black” – a perfected version of the classic Norwegian sound, I’d say.Read More

Cepheide – De Silence Et De Suie

Autumn melancholy For this article I have been inspired by the newborn French formation Cepheide and their demo “De Silence Et De Suie”(translates “Silence and Soot”). After years of practicing in the shadows, this band has gathered enough strength and courage to show what they got under their belt. Cepheide’s members come from different musical backgrounds and that is evident in their mixed sound of diverse inspirations. Unique in its own way, cold and drenched in melancholy, “De Silence Et De Suie” is a perfect companion for the Autumn days.  Usually IRead More

What could be the best album to listen to in a gloomy day; something furious or maybe chilling with subtle melancholic touch? Essentially, that’s up to you but I might have a suggestion that could make easier picking what to feed your soul on. Apocalyptic Art provides another interesting band that is worth getting to know. Hailing from Germany, Winterhauch appeared for the first time with an EP back in 2011, whose title is “Am Ende stirbt die Hoffnung”. It translates “In The End Hope Dies”.  This record involves six tracksRead More
depicting abysm
A panorama more deplorably desolate no human imagination can conceive In December 2013, Naturmacht Production released Immersion, the debut album of Depressive/Atmospheric Black Metal Band Depicting Abysm from St. Petersburg, Russia. Behind Depicting Abysm are the two musicians A (all instruments/Programming) and K (vox), both known for their other project, Epitimia. Reducing the names shows just perfectly what Immersion is about: The individual is reduced to nothing in the face of the overwhelming, endless ocean that is as beautiful as deadly. The sea is centre point of attention in theRead More
Erfundene Welten_inexistenz
(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
