Dødsengel - Alongside Choronzon

An exhilarating, 27-minute journey into the unknowable madness of the Abyss. Four new songs, instantly recognisable as Dødsengel... as diverse as ever in their composition and atmosphere.


Dødsengel - Ecstatic Horror

Dødsengel emerge with two new powerful incantations, ‘Axis Mundi’ and ‘Unchained and Reborn’ – both tracks equal in their pounding ferocity and mystical energy.

Gorgonea Prima!

Just fucking look at these guys......Tekno throwbacks from Mortal Kombat II, playing the future of modern Black Metal warfare.
We've all heard Aborym, Mysticum, Neo Inferno 262 and the rest, and each of them left us gasping for air, yet after we recovered, we thought 'This band could push it further, they could use more of these drug fuelled elektronikal additions in order to wipe my memory from my skull in a green hazed bout of madness'.
Well this is where we find ourselves, finally a band that is 100% CYBER.
There's no quiet Black Metal only sections, everything is powered by elektroniks, everything storms ahead through fibre optik cables, with one destination, your brain.
There's no pulse to this, only beeps and fans spinning, like the computer you're using now.

Needless to say this is recommended, I urge all of you with the slightest interest in above mentioned bands as well as any general interest in Industrial BM or the more obscure ancient term of Cyber BM.

Todtgelichter - Angst

First time listening to this band(I think?) and from what history states, this band have been through a few changes in theme and style, from pagan/depressive black metal, and now into a much more modern Post-Black Metal frame of mind.
I have to say, hats off to them, because they have done an incredible job.
Clean female vocals stand side by side with harsh male BM screams, the music is upbeat and for the most part quite pacey....carrying with it that common post-black metal sound, whilst holding onto a more polished black metal riff base sound, which works superbly.
Great music for Black Metal fans who wish to take an hour off from Satan and his minions, this is a wonderful urban approach.

Urfaust - Der freiwillige Bettler

New release from our Dutch fruitcakes Urfaust, excellent mood setting album for that important first date with the college girl you picked up down at burger king, essential listening.
Urfaust should be no mystery to you by now, the vocals are still oddly excellent, the music is still full of atmosphere and foreboding.  Grab it! Grab her Kunt!

Svartrit - I - III

Not very often does a band release three albums in a year, let alone all at the same time.
I'd never heard of this band before untill my recent discovery, and I wasn't expecting too much from the generic covers and unoriginal B&W woodland photography, but pleasantly, I was surprised.
You could find yourself comparing this band to early/mid era Abigor during moments, Svartrit do manage to carry that mid-90's feeling among certain songs, which makes it easy to listen to and doesn't give you much room to pick at this band, unless you're looking for something totally original and fresh, which this isn't.
Dark Germanic Heathenism/Anti-Cosmic is apparently the lyrical theme, not that you'd be able to tell at all.
Closing this up I have enjoyed the minutes spent listening to all three releases and I'd suggest you do the same.
(Note - the second album failed to upload, so the first and third will be posted and the second shall follow, if you enjoy both post a comment and I'll try and get the second album posted quickly.)

Download I & III

Borgne - Entraves De L'ame

Awesome cold Black Metal, from this less than known band who in the past simply titled their albums I, II, III & IV.  Freezing and terrifying riffs and electronics span throughout ripping the breath from your throat.
For fans of Astral Silence, DSDO and Sun of The Blind.

Belenos - Yet Sonn Gardis

One of the toughest and best Pagan Black Metal bands there is, here with another offering of Heathen domination against the modern religions, sword in hand, raping the spirit of Allah, Mohammed and his fellow Prophets.

Inquisition - Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm

This is Inquisition, this is Black Metal.
Awesome new release by, in my opinion, one of America's greatest bands.
It's all here, the killer riffs, the thundering drums and those trademark vocals.  Great production, great songs, great fucking album.

Der Weg einer Freiheit - Der Weg einer Freiheit (2009)

This isn't normally my type of album, but I took a punt on it and enjoyed it alot.

After 5 years in the Dark Ambient scene, this horde have evolved into Black Metal music with this debut. The first full-length "Atheist dezekration" is composed of eight brutal and spellbounding pieces, spawned of differents interludes!
Interesting listen for a band so young in the shape of BM.


Otargos - No God, No Satan

Decent release from a pretty killer live band whom I saw a few months back, they're also good on disc.
