Nadja - Bodycage album cover


Bodycage, 2006

8.3 / 10

There aren't many drone and ambient bands out there that can hold my interest for more than a couple of minutes. There has to be a certain something special there ...

Asunder - Works Will Come Undone album cover


Works Will Come Undone, 2006

9.0 / 10

To many, 2006 will be remembered as the year Britney Spears' vagina was opened to the world. To others, it will be remembered for the synthesis of Brad Pitt and ...

Profundi - Omega Rising album cover


Omega Rising, 2006

8.6 / 10

I don’t know much about the Swedish band Naglfar, but I get the impression that they are well respected in black metal circles. But what I do know is that ...

Wold - Screech Owl album cover


Screech Owl, 2007

6.0 / 10

Ever hear of Wold? No? I too am hearing them for the first time. I will say that this is a disturbing record. I understand that being cooped up on ...

Caïna - Mourner album cover


Mourner, 2007

7.1 / 10

This is the kind record that I enjoy from time to time, a big surprise; it is not what I expected in any way, shape, or form and caught me ...

Amber Asylum - Still Point album cover

Amber Asylum

Still Point, 2007

6.0 / 10

The first time I listened to Still Point I was riding to work on the top deck of a double-decker bus at eight o’clock in the morning. Record opener “In ...

Alcest - Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde album cover


Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde, 2007

3.4 / 10

To listen to “Souvenirs D’un Autre Monde” (which translates into Memories Of Another World) is to experience a world free of pain, darkness, and despair, and to enter a world ...

Cobalt - Eater of Birds album cover


Eater of Birds, 2007

7.0 / 10

Cobalt is a two-piece black metal band hailing from the United States. They have a surprisingly full and "polished" sound that sets them apart from other black metal bands that ...

Atavist - II: Ruined album cover


II: Ruined, 2008

8.4 / 10

Minimalistic drone/doom is a hit-or-miss kind of genre. When you are relying on only one or two riffs to carry an entire song, the results can be either bone-chilling or ...

Amesoeurs - Amesoeurs album cover


Amesoeurs, 2009

9.1 / 10

Isn’t it ironic that a band whose name means “kindred spirits” in French is broken up? As depressing as that fact is, at least Amesoeurs has finally left us one ...

Altar Of Plagues - Mammal album cover

Altar Of Plagues

Mammal, 2011

8.5 / 10

Ireland's Altar of Plagues play a style of black metal so atmospheric in nature, that you can't help but be completely taken in by the sounds you're hearing and the ...

Caïna - Hands That Pluck album cover


Hands That Pluck, 2011

9.5 / 10

Hands That Pluck is uncompromising. The final album under the Caïna name for (one man) band leader Andy Curtis-Brignell is intense. Vocally, musically, and lyrically. This is an album dealing ...

A Storm of Light - As the Valley of Death Becomes Us, Our Silver Memories Fade album cover

A Storm of Light

As the Valley of Death Becomes Us, Our Silver Memories Fade, 2011

7.5 / 10

What do you get when you throw Mastodon and Neurosis into a blender? If you answered 'Scott Kelly's over-stroked ego,' then, yes, you're technically correct. But if you're not being ...

Pallbearer - Sorrow And Extinction album cover


Sorrow And Extinction, 2012

9.5 / 10

Arkansas residents Pallbearer have been a band to watch out for ever since the release of a fantastic three track demo in 2010. Featuring two original compositions ("Devoid of Redemption" ...

Bosse-de-Nage - iii album cover


iii, 2012

9.5 / 10

Pushing the black metal blueprint ever further from its roots, San Franciscan four-piece Bosse-de-Nage deliver a record of complex intensity and distraught emotion with third full length iii. The enigmatic ...

Evoken - Atra Mors album cover


Atra Mors, 2012

9.5 / 10

New Jersey quartet Evoken have consistently produced genre defining funeral doom throughout their twenty year career and Atra Mors is a grand and huge addition to such a flawless output. ...

Menace Ruine - Alight In Ashes album cover

Menace Ruine

Alight In Ashes, 2012

9.5 / 10

Up until now I believed that Menace Ruine would not release anything that I would find mind blowing. Their three previous albums (Cult of Ruins, The Die Is Cast and Union of Irreconcilables), ...

Portal - Vexovoid album cover


Vexovoid, 2013

9.5 / 10

The only thing that would make sense of how this album came to be is the following scenario: Portal managed to somehow open a gateway to the realms of the ...
