Sunset In The 12th House - Mozaic
Review by Apothecary
There can be very little denying that Edmond Karban and Christian Popescu (of Negură Bunget note) have come a long way in developing and perfecting their sound. First masters of atmosphere in Negura, they have since departed, forming the equally (if not more) impressive Dordeduh in 2009. But the ball's not stopping its rolling there, folks. Get ready for Sunset In The 12th House.


Vattnet Viskar - Settler
Review by Apothecary
If there was an award this year for "most ambiguous album cover," it would probably have to go to Vattnet Viskar's Settler. Although the image itself reveals almost nothing about the music within, the image that it recreates has powerful implications of blissful unawareness of a fast approaching doom, somber themes that Vattnet Viskar seem to capture with their heavy and airy sound.


Deathhammer - Evil Power
Review by wormdrink414
It was bumping into tables, repeating anecdotes repeatedly, hitting on old women sloppiness that made Onward To The Pits so memorable.


Damnation Angels - The Valiant Fire
Review by Ag Fox
Damnation Angels defies stereotypes.


High On Fire - Luminiferous
Review by BitterCOld
High On Fire are one of a few select bands in metal, or even in the music industry. Six albums out and none of them suck. Not too many bands you can say that about now, are there? Luminiferous marks their seventh studio release and some highly flammable straw men might have been worried that they'd run out of ideas or Matt Pike's sobriety might fuck up their awesome dynamic… Bitch, please.


Civil War - Gods And Generals
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
Civil War is a history buff's dream. Finally, a metal anthem dedicated to Lord Nelson! Someone else in the world dug up the story of the USS Monitor! And who could not but respect the musical memorialization of Oskar Schindler? Sweden's second-favorite library-bound power metal venture never fail to impress - in terms of lyrical content, anyway. Unfortunately, as the saying goes… history repeats itself.


Powerwolf - Blessed & Possessed
Review by Belegûr
"I've put on the last album by mistake." These were my initial thoughts when I started listening to Blessed & Possessed; that is just how similar the opening track, "Blessed & Possessed," is to "Amen & Attack" from the previous album, Preachers Of The Night. Unfortunately this feeling of déjà vu continued throughout the rest of the album.


Antigama - The Insolent
Review by Apothecary
Within the often rigid confines of grindcore, the Polish Antigama has carved a unique identity for itself, sticking true to the genre perhaps, but also coming to weave all kinds of unusual shapes and sounds around it. 2015's The Insolent, however, sees the band easing up on the weirdness factor a bit and opting for a more straightforward approach.


Staff pick
Heavydeath - Eternal Sleepwalker
death doom

First offering from the former Runemagick members lives up to the name Heavydeath. Great doom tunes, deathy vocals - but a good share of droning elements are the perfect accompaniment. And it is a tad amusing that Eternal Sleepwalker was released on Caligari records.

Mono - Kino Siska, Ljubljana, Slovenia - 23.04.2015 22.06

My interest in checking out shows of bands hailing from sub-genres like experimental post-rock, instrumental post-metal (or similar in this vein) has been present more and more over recent years. So, of course, to attend a concert of Mono in our capital city was the right thing to do. The band was touring across Europe in support of their latest double-album release: The Last Dawn and Rays Of Darkness. (by Abattoir)   Read more ››

SOiL - True Self (2006)

Chicago's Soil has long been a source of somewhat uneven music, located somewhere in between Alice In Chains and Down. However, as potent as this mixture might sound, the band rarely pulls it off with overwhelming success, too often allowing themselves to indulge in mediocrity. Although the band now has a different vocalist, not much has changed as far as the quality of their output is concerned - True Self, save for a few inspired moments, is entirely as forgettable as the remainder of Soil's...
