Premiere: Tundra – The Burning Fanatism

After a short inactivity, I am ready to present you yet another band that is killing it with full force. You might be familiar with bands like Deathrow and Frostmoon Eclipse already (and if so, you will be pleasantly surprised) where there is a common figure pulling the strings in the deep shadows whose’s name is Gionata Potenti. He is known as being a multi-instrumentalist and more importantly  a contributor to the Italian band Tundra. The third album “The Burning Fanatism” features his drum and vocal skills that will convinceRead More
Nefastoreth - Imperium Serpentis Evangelii / support black metal
Walking down  the path to complete isolation and finding inner serenity while destroying everything human; the process of becoming a misanthropic soul has been initiated! Allow me to introduce you Nefastoreth who will take you on a journey that displays the ugly and false side of society and its idols through one of the most severe forms of black metal. Nefastoreth was conceived back in 2002 in Italy. The band has been nurtured with misanthropy ever since and that can be depicted from their past works “Shining Crown of an Ending Day”Read More

From the depths: Paymon, Nebrus and Orsus

With the coming end of 2014, it’s about time to unleash the last “From the depths” sequence for this year  featuring bands from Italy and the United States. Frankly, it is always hard for me to narrow it down to just three examples given that every day I come across at least 4-5 mindblowing names that make me go “that’s a fucking WOW, man!!!” Anyway, lets get this started. Paymon Paymon is a one-man raw black metal band from Italy that was born in the early 90’s. The life-giving force behindRead More
Italian avant-garde black metal duo Dawn of A Dark Age have proven themselves to be a productive band for a fairly short amount of time. In July they released their first conceptual album “The Six Elements, vol.1 Earth” [see article] that is based on a sequence related to the five elements (earth, water, air, fire and spirit). Now in turn is about to come their second opus “Six Elements, vol.2 Water”, which maintains the same tradition of including six tracks as the previous album with a total duration of 36 minutes.Read More
Nazgul Rising - Orietur in Tenebris Lux Tua / support black metal
Nazgul Rising is an aspiring Italian black metal coven who released their debut album “Orietur in Tenebris Lux Tua” in the end of May 2014. It was a long wait for this full-length to come , keeping in mind that the band was born back in 2002; “Demo-Niako” is their very first creation. Afterwards, two more demos followed until the grand arrival of “Orietur in Tenebris Lux”. As independed artists, Nazgul Rising have done an undisputedly great job with the preparation of their debut. The cover artwork is an eye-catcherRead More
Dawn of A Dark Age – an Italian underground act releases their debut album “The Six Elements, vol.1 Earth.” Let me put it this way. It’s the first of many. This album is the first of six and all of them will be based on a global concept where each element has its own unique characteristic, starting from a raw black metal matrix, and including folk and avant-garde elements. In addition, each of the six albums will be composed by six tracks. Best of all, the album is up forRead More
