Album of the Day:
Thy Catafalque – Meta
Posted: September 16, 2016 at 4:12 pm

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: After blowing my microbial brain through a nuclear-powered orgasmatron with last year’s full-length Sgùrr, I was slightly surprised Thy Catafalque had any creative juice left in the tank. Not only was Sgùrr one of the best albums I heard last year, it was one of […]

Album of the Day:
Asatta – Spiraling Into Oblivion
Posted: September 14, 2016 at 4:19 pm

Lovingly pinched from Echoes And Dust: Dooming since 2011, Asatta have finally got round to releasing their debut full release, Spiraling Into Oblivion, and for a scene which is in danger of folding into itself with so many sound-a-like bands, they may just introduce a new found invigoration. By learning […]

Album of the Day:
In The Woods – Pure
Posted: September 13, 2016 at 6:58 pm

Lovingly pinched from Metal Underground.com: Pure marks the first album by Norwegian dark, avant-garde band In The Woods since 1999 effort Strange In Stereo. The last album was only the band’s third full-length, but each album received much critical acclaim and retained the In The Woods style of melody and […]

Album of the Day:
Casual Nun – Super Fancy Skeleton
Posted: September 12, 2016 at 3:40 pm

Lovingly pinched from Echoes And Dust: Crawling out of the miasmic noise of the London underground (and not as in the iconic yet ramshackle transport link), Casual Nun are equal parts noise rock, psychedelic stew and acid-fried krautrock. An intriguing mix that coalesces into an invigorating whole, they fit well […]

Album of the Day:
Hypnopazūzu – Create Christ, Sailor Boy
Posted: August 29, 2016 at 4:27 pm
Hypnopazuzu – Create Christ Sailor Boy

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: “The group’s name Hypnopazūzu brought together 3 beings, and 2 languages, that move me and delight me and trouble me. Hypnagogia. Hypnos. Pazūzu. The Coptic language. The Akkadian language,” he explains. “Youth kindly allowed me to choose the name, on the basis that we called […]

Album of the Day:
Zeal and Ardor – Devil Is Fine
Posted: August 24, 2016 at 2:09 pm
Zeal and Ardor – Devil Is Fine

Lovingly pinched from Nine Circles: By now, chances are you’ve heard of New York’s Zeal and Ardor and if you’re anything like me you absolutely cannot get enough of second full length Devil Is Fine. It’s an amalgamation of so many different types of music — black metal, spirituals, hip […]
