Verberis- Adumbration of the Veiled Logos (Album Review) June 21, 2022

Adumbration of the Veiled Logos
by Verberis

Black/death metal band Verberis has been on my radar since their earlier days, as 2014 demo Vastitas brought a flurry of chaotic riffs and immense energy with it that showcased a bit more technical precision than some of their peers. By the time their debut full-length Vexamen arrived in 2016 the gr...

Berator- Elysian Inferno (EP Review) June 17, 2022

Elysian Inferno
by Berator

Berators EP Elysian Inferno has been a long-time coming, as the band released their initial two-track demo back in 2018 and inked a deal with Dark Descent Records at the end of 2019. Given the backed-up schedules of most labels given vinyl material shortage and other pandemic related issues, this lo...

Wrang- De vaendrig (Album Review) June 14, 2022

De vaendrig
by Wrang

Dutch black metal has continued to dominate much of my listening time over the last few years, as not only have many of the bands released genuinely stunning material but many have also managed to be different stylistically. Wrang may just be one of the most diverse Ive come across recently, as thei...

Severe Torture- Fisting the Sockets (EP Review) June 13, 2022

Fisting the Sockets
by Severe Torture

Despite being around since 1997 and releasing five full lengths between 2000 and 2010, Dutch death metal band Severe Torture has never seemed to reach the same level of notoriety in North America as some of the others out there. Id argue that theyve been able to provide a comparable quality to some ...

Cleaver- No More Must Crawl (Album Review) June 10, 2022

No More Must Crawl
by Cleaver

As someone who grew up with quite a bit of hardcore and metalcore before getting into the extreme variants of metal, Im always a fan of bands that can capture that same frantic energy and deliver scorching and constantly changing riffs. French group Cleaver perfectly fits that bill, as their debut f...

Melt Motif- A White Horse Will Take You Home (Album Review) June 8, 2022

A White Horse Will Take You Home
by Melt Motif

When Im not listening to some of the heaviest music around, I tend to gravitate towards material that has more of an ethereal or dreamy slant to it. Shoegaze, darkwave, and associated genres prove to be appealing and sometimes end up being just as dark and mysterious as some of the metal out there, ...

Wampyrinacht- Night of the Desecration (Album Review) June 1, 2022

Night of the Desecration
by Wampyrinacht

Like the other influential black metal countries, Greece has had its share of long-running bands that have gone on to influence countless others as well as projects that faded into obscurity only to re-emerge decades later. Since the early 2010s Disharmony and Empire of the Moon have released their ...
