Kosmogyr brings black metal across two continents

Kosmogyr is a new, debuting name in the crowded black metal panorama.

Borgne 8th album is infinite hate. In brackets.

Borgne 8th album is infinite hate. In brackets.

Borgne path has never been straight. Founded in 1998, when it debuted with a demo, the project went off the radar for almost a decade, coming back at full throttle in 2007 with two albums released almost simultaneously. Another ten years after, we are proud to add the Swiss band, which recently became a two-piece,...

Sojourner sophomore album is about to be released!

Funeral Winds to release their fourth opus in twentyseven years

Funeral Winds to release their fourth opus in twentyseven years

Sinister Creed is Funeral Winds fourth album in twentyseven years. Despite not being a very prolific act, Hellchrist Xul’s creature is one of the first black metal bands ever to come out of the Netherlands underground. Even if released via Avantgarde Music, expect no avantgarde music here: Sinister Creed is pure rage coming from the...
Abigor tenth studio album praises the Devil once again

Abigor tenth studio album praises the Devil once again

Höllenzwang is the title of a book by the infamous alchemist Johann Faust, and is German for infernal compulsion. Since this January, it also stands for Abigor tenth studio album, and you already know it means furious, uncompromising, old-school black metal. Simple as it sounds. Many words could be used to describe T.T. and P.K.’s...
Ofdrykkja is back with a sophomore studio album

Ofdrykkja is back with a sophomore studio album

This December will bring snow, cold and… self-harm. Ofdrykkja, which means “excessive drinking” in old norse, is back and its depressive rock will show you once again what self-hatred and helplessness mean. Founded after Drabbad’s release from an institution and Pessimisten’s (formerly C9H13N) Apati disbandment, Ofdrykkja is about to release its sophomore album, Irrfärd (“roving”...

Circle Of Salt debut Suffer The Cold out in December

Circle Of Salt debut Suffer The Cold out in December

Circle Of Salt debut is a genuine example of atmospheric black metal in its purest and most primitive form: long pieces, alternate picking, inhuman screams and a furious yet intimate mood permeating the whole album. Let his one-man band from Québec lead you through the snowy Canadian lands. The Cascadian scene is indeed at the...
Nortt "Endeligt" will be out ten years after "Galgenfrist"

Sharp riffs are now mixed with more intricate patterns, the odd psychedelic hints sprout here...
A Pale December 'The Shrine Of Primal Fire' debut out in early November

A Pale December ‘The Shrine Of Primal Fire’ debut out in early November

The grey mist surrounding Milan was the perfect setting for multi-instrumentalists Korpsvart and Ymir to start writing music, an atmospheric black metal devoted to the Pacific Northwest, yet mixed with blackgaze and a taste of depressive rock. The result of such effort is called A Pale December. The milanese band is only debuting, but their...
