Antimatter - The Judas Table
Review by Demonic Tutor
Antimatter is a band formed by Duncan Patterson, former bass player and songwriter of doom metal band Anathema. Mick Moss picked up the pieces when Duncan Patterson left the band in 2004. And to the surprise of many pundits, the next couple of albums knocked it out of the park. So much so that nearly a decade later, Leaving Eden is rightfully regarded as the band's masterpiece. But Mick Moss is a musician with a message, and Antimatter is his...


Grey Heaven Fall - Black Wisdom
Review by Mr. Doctor
The warmth from extreme metal can be found in the coldest of places.


Ixion - Enfant De La Nuit
Review by BitterCOld
Many moons ago French doomsters Ixion released To The Void, a tasty atmospheric doom release that I particularly enjoyed. After a four year hibernation in deep space somewhere (or possibly a chalet somewhere in the French alps) they have returned with Enfant De La Nuit, or "Child of the Night". Their core sound remains. It is "atmospheric doom", which is a way of saying slow riffs absolutely drenched in keyboards with mournful...


Movimento D'Avanguardia Ermetico - Torri Del Silenzio
Review by Windrider
People that have read other reviews of mine won't be surprised to know that today's band plays an atmospheric style of black metal, combined with some post metal attitude. Movimento D'Avanguardia Ermetico - a name worth memorizing. Or not? I can say for myself that their music stays longer in my head than their band name. But yes, they're not the first to chose a difficult name. As it might suggest, this band is from Italy and they have been around for a solid decade now, most of the time unnoticed by the majority of non-Italian metalheads. However, with their new album Torri Del Silenzio, it is about time for them to have their music appreciated by a broader fan base.


Dragged Into Sunlight / Gnaw Their Tongues - N.V. [Collaboration]
Review by Apothecary
Musical collaborations. There's so much that can go wrong with them if the parties involved don't know how to properly channel the sacred kundalini energy that allows them to naturally flow into each other's styles. Then again, there's so much that can go right if they do. N.V. is a collaboration between Dragged Into Sunlight and Dutch mad genius Mories in his Gnaw Their Tongues incarnation. You shouldn't have to ask which of those two is the case for this one.


Sivyj Yar - Burial Shrouds
Review by Windrider
Last year, Sivyj Yar quite surprised us with their album From The Dead Villages' Darkness, which is still my favorite black metal album of 2014. The atmosphere of the riffs and spoken parts with everyday situation sounds still haunt me to this day. You can guess my excitement when I heard that a successor was to be released quite exactly one year after this. Burial Shrouds was a must-have for me and I can firmly say that there is no disappointment.


Dahakara - Low Of Wisdom
Review by Apothecary
Istanbul, Turkey has long been one of the world's crossroads, where polar opposites seem to meet up and form interesting fusions that result in entirely new products. Europeans meet Asians and Africans. Christians meet Muslims. The East meets the West in general. Or, if we're speaking from a musical perspective, rather than cultural, in the case of Dahakara we could take Istanbul as a crossroads where black metal meets up with ambient music.


Kauan - Sorni Nai
Review by Demonic Tutor
Touched by grace once more, the Russian band known as Kauan carries on with their folkish doom atmospheric brilliance with another composition that spans the whole album. After the impressive Pirut, I was a little weary when Kauan's mastermind Anton Belov announced that this was going to be another epic composition. After all, how could it compare to the sheer genius of Pirut? So yeah, I was a fan of the band coming in, but this album does not...

Black Tongue - The Unconquerable Dark

Apparently there's a new "thing" out there now - 'Doomcore'

Deathcore played slower, or down-tempo. Name's actually kinda catchy, and it's certainly less to say than "downtempo deathcore" (if it catches on anyway).

Chugga chugga, mothafuggas!

Moonspell - Tapper, Tallinn, Estonia, 03.11.2015 23.11

This is a concert I've been waiting for a long time to happen. The last time Moonspell were here was a bit over nine years ago. That's a very, very long while for an active band and three albums have happened in the meantime. For various reasons it's also over six years since I last saw the band, so naturally the interest was piqued. (by Ivor)   Read more ››
Progventure Parts 11&12: 2 x (Iamthemorning + Gazpacho), The Netherlands, 30-31.10.2015 16.11

I wanted to go to Oslo. Even if I had not made any actual travelling arrangements yet, I had my mind all made up on catching the last date of the Gazpacho tour with Iamthemorning supporting. With the date falling on Friday in mid-November, all seemed perfect and good to go - except what I really wanted was to see Iamthemorning play live and Oslo was the only date of the tour they were not present. Thus, a new plan had to be forged with The Netherlands coming to the rescue. (by Ivor)   Read more ››
Joe Satriani - Rock Café, Tallinn, Estonia, 19.10.2015 28.10

For many, Joe Satriani is an idol to look up to, a teacher to learn from, and an example to follow. The hands of this guitar god are so nimble that you wouldn't believe it unless you saw him play. His influence in guitar music is unquestionable whether you like his music or not. You have to see him play at least once in your life. So, when this man is in town, you really should go out to a show. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Cattle Decapitation - Karma.Bloody.Karma (2006)

Cattle Decapitation has battled their way into the Goregrind scene since 1996; people has misconceived their music and started comparing them with Cannibal Corpse and bands of the like. Fortunately they came back with one of the most outrageous and complex Goregrind albums of 2006; if "Humanure" didn't convince you that Cattle Decapitation is one of the most outstanding acts in the Metal scene, Karma.Bloody.Karma will drill your brain 12 consecutive times while you try to catch up...
