    Pure Wrath – Ascetic Eventide – Album Review

    Tracklist: Colourless Grassland Mountain Calls Clouds Retiring In Cold World Pathetic Fantasies Between Water and Winds Review: 2 years in the works and this work of art is out to an audience of unquestionable requirements, meaning, all supporters of outlandish black metal. Acoustic and melodic moments interval with an impacting lead discharge that brings the whole work an extraordinary vitality on all tracks, giving the entire album a colossal force with sufficiently crude dynamic. Pure Wrath made one the best track collections of the year, a genuine articulation of the black metal spirit underlying foundations. Savage, yet fundamental to the style, Ascetic Eventide music mixes different components along contorted guitar…

    Erebos – The Light In My Darkness – Album Review

    Tracklist: Long Before Elves Awoke Halls of Mandos Darkening of Valinor The Light in My Darkness Review Tolkien labor of love, the profound Middle-Earth mythology which Erebos is a long-time fan, is the base of The Light in My Darkness, a spectacular instrumental adventure of the senses. This collection, recorded in Paterek, Poland amid the spring of 2017, comes two months after the presentation “Nan iChir Gelair Mordor”, and couldn’t be better even for the casual listener. Black, dark, darker, darkly. From the Piano beginning, the ambient synth melodies make you turn the volume up and dive into Erebos sonic landscape, a somewhat complex atmospheric metal with the expected keyboards…

    Dzö-nga – The Sachem’s Tales – Album Review

    Tracklist: 1. Midewiwin Lodge 2. To the Great Salt Water 3. The Wolves Fell Quiet 4. Halle Ravine 5. Against the Northern Wind 6. A Seventh Age of Fire 7. The Witching Meadow Review: I wouldn’t tell by the name that this band is coming from Boston. And I didn’t really care until their music made me look it up and got me hooked until the end of the album. An excellent craft of atmospheric metal, expect great desolate musical ambiances (rain, pianos, acoustic guitars) intertwined with some pretty vocals, somewhat drowned and mixed in the guitar sound. Not a bad thing for this style anyways. The Sachem’s Tales is…

    Unreqvited – Disquiet – Album Review

    Tracklist: Birth The Autumn Fire Disquiet A Tear From The Oak An Ocean Of Ire Maydena Death Review: Another one-man project, another amazing work of pure dark metal art. A collection of tracks that takes us through the life cycle of Earth beings, summoning contemplations of saddened feelings and a grieved interior state of mind. The result is a wonderfully melodic, timeless voyage of the senses. Its message is to let your spirit go. It will guide you through nature, seas and time itself. Tormented voices accompanying melodic synths and pianos becomes anguishing at times, just saved by the dynamic melody applied all over the desperation of the story. The…
