Nekrasov



Nekrasov are one of a number of projects bringing us Black Metal/Noise/Ambient hybrids these days, and Nekrasov do it in a very harsh noise driven fashion, it's kaotic and insane at times, whilst the noise/ambient tracks are dark and intimidating, hinting at some future doom that awaits us all in our stone buildings and steel steeds, this is very much for the modern world.  This is however, all very well kontrolled, so much so that you might begin to think that Skynet is involved in the creation of these songs.  You've been warned.

Dark Tribe - Archaic Visions

Awesome new album from German nutcases Dark Tribe, demented lunatic kaos! 
Vokills are for your Silencer/Bethlehem fans, the music on the other hand is probably more off the wall than both bands combined, this only features at times though.
Excellent riffs partner some brilliant and refreshing drum patterns also a great production for this type of band, not too polished, still raw and cold, but clear enough to sound full and fat.
If you're going to listen to one album this week, try and make it this one.
PSYKOTIC BLACK METAL ATTAKK!

Mjölnir


Mjölnir are in my mind such an underrated band that it's disgusting.
I've had the full length for a number of years now, and it's still full of quality.
Razor sharp guitars with tons of keys, which aren't homosexual in the slightest, but go with the music perfectly.
Awesome clean and harsh vokills give this an epic and ancient atmosphere.
Due to this being NSBM and at the time of its release in Germany, there was a big crackdown on such movements, Mjölnir's lable at the time was raided and thus ceased to contiue service, alas so did this highly recommended relic and gem.
I'm throwing in the split just as an extra.  Antichrist are nothing special.
Mjölnir's material on the split differs quite alot from that of the album.  But worth hearing regardless.

Trimorphes Zentrum Xul - Novus oriens

Cybernetic Black Metal willing you to insert wires into your throat whilst listening to Techno and worshipping He that is Xul.
For all fans of Cyber/Industrial Black Metal, this is a gem.  Occult and perverted elektronik E-Vol

Deus Despectum

French Black Metal focusing on Satan, Violence and Perversion.

Subconscious Evil

Now this is truly kult!
No logo, no track titles, not even a decent fucking cover, just 100% venomous Black Metal from Japan, there's not even info on members here, no idea when this band got going either, just be safe in the knowledge that this is pretty horrible to behold, ultra raw, fantasticly sinister and best of all, super-grim.

Malign

Before Ofermod, before Orthodox BM and its modern movement, we had Malign.
Similar in sound at times but here we one of the founding hordes in the Orthodox Black Metal circle.

Front Beast - Wicked Wings of Wartjalka

Mid-paced Germanic Black Metal

Nightbringer

First album by this cult US Black Metal band, awesome song writing only improved with the second album.
Burning the flame for Orthodox USBM.

Deathspell Omega - Manifestations 2002

Tracks before they went all higher Luciferian on the world, probably better stuff than on the first couple of releases IMO.

Worth hearing all the same, something to keep you going whilst we wait for the new album, which should be out sometime before the end of this year.

oOo - STN Nuclear Generation


Industrial Black Metal from 2006, first and final release.
Cd-R limited to 100 handnumbered copies.
Apparently the band has since changed its name to Out of Order
Features members from various well known French acts.

What Do You Think of The Old God, We Call Him Judas?

So now you've tasted Reverorum ib Malacht, I shall unleash the first demo.

This demo is simply incredible, you will be very hard pressed to find something as dark and as powerful sounding as this, nor I'm sure will you be able to find another release that captures such evil ambience and a smothering atmosphere.  This is perfection, I can only compare it to other releases by taking the best parts of say....Hell i'm not quite sure, it's such a fog on the mind listening to this that it makes everything stand still because you just can't focus and once it has played out, you'll be hard pressed to get it out of your head.

The production is wonderful(terrible)...apparently they wanted to use the worst recording equipment possible, which just happen to result in genius.
What you hear is the sounds of dark rituals vibrating malevolently through stone walls finally reaching your ears as your body lays helpless and frozen with fear underground Reverorum ib Malacht's temple of black sorcery.
This is the soundtrack to the Dungeons of Angband.

Maniac Butcher - Masakr


"MANIAC BUTCHER are back after a 10 year hiatus with their 7th album. The full length entitled 'Masakr' contains six new tracks of orthodox black metal. Raw and heavy guitars pound out riff after riff of furious evil energized by aggressive drumming and completed with a violent wave of harsh distorted dirty vocals that tell the epic tale of Maniac Butcher. The overall sound on Masakr is monstrous. This album is by far the most professionally produced MANIAC BUTCHER album to date yet still captures the raw and underground feeling of previous albums.MANIAC BUTCHER are the longest running true black metal band from Czech. Since the early 90's they have maintained their motto "No keyboards!! No female vocals!! Only pure black metal storm!!" which forged their straight forward and ruthless sound.Ruthless and savage black metal that spits at the cross!"


Description to follow.
