Crone Gehenna

Crone – Gehenna

Crone is a new project from two German metal musicians—sG, guitarist/vocalist from seminal black metal act Secrets of the Moon, and Markus Renzenbrink, drummer of brutal death band Embedded. Secrets of the Moon’s best moments on the last few albums had little to do with blast beats, tremolo picking, or icy high-pitched screams; their own […]

The Ruins of Beverast – Blood Vaults—The Blazing Gospel of Heinrich Kramer

Since the turn of the new millennium it’s become rather easy to be a bit more discerning when it comes to music, particularly when new releases are involved. Additionally, the “Age of Information” in which we live has allowed these more recent albums and those of the past to be at our fingertips at all […]

Have a Nice Life – The Unnatural World

Gloomy music—from doom metal to goth rock, to put it in the most basic categories—is often dismissed as something created for a teenage market or a specific type of culture. While this is often true, where band after band comes out with some mournful yet tacky tune for the younger crowd, Have a Nice Life […]

La Pietra Lunare

La Pietra Lunare – Same

The use of literature as a source for inspiration in music is a time-honored and beautiful approach in creating something contemporary. Even within fiction there is a history formed by the sources of—and psyche behind—the thoughts and observations composed by our creative predecessors. Regardless of the distance in time between ourselves and these scribes, a […]

Lux Occulta Kolysanki

Lux Occulta – Kołysanki

Lux Occulta was a definitive band of my youth, combining black metal with electronics that led to moody, eerie, experimental, and, at times, simply beautiful compositions. Being a fan of music that pushes boundaries and the avant-garde in general, the average metal band rarely did it for me at that point in my life. I […]

Satanic Warmaster – Fimbulwinter

At their weddings, funerals, and other such life events, the Karelians like to sing a song to announce that, one day, they shall sing so loudly that all of Finland will hear it. It appears that a certain Herr Werwolf has taken it upon himself to make this prophecy come true—although it seems that the […]

Pogrom Degancios Suros Crop

Pogrom – Degančios Suros

Degančios Suros quickly sold out when previously released on cassette by Unrest Productions in 2013, so it’s nice to see a label in our community willing to re-release for a wider audience. For this CD release, Unrest share duties with Pogrom frontman Levas Urlo’s own Lithuanian label Terror. I missed Degančios Suros the first time around, […]

Thomas Nöla & the Black Hole – Future Illusions

It would be difficult for one to claim that they were well-versed in the American post-industrial scene and yet not know about the work of one Thomas Nöla or his Disques de Lapin imprint, now at nearly a decade in age. I will admit that, prior to my experience here with his Future Illusions album, this […]
