End of Green

Void Estate by Michael “Sad Sir” Setzer I still haven’t come up with a better explanation or description than “bad weather music”. Somehow this still fits after all these years. ‘Void Estate’ is a little more mellow and probably grumpy at the same time. This one turned out even different then we all expected, which…

Seven Kingdom

Decennium by Camden Cruz We are not super political in our lyrics, but there are times where we speak generally how we feel against what people would call ‘the man’, haha. As for religion, we don’t really hit that at all either. We are mostly trying to write music that is memorable, melodic an catchy.…

Final Coil

Persistence of memory by Phil Stiles It’s difficult to describe our music, I tend to write according to what I feel rather than to any particular genre, so defining the album in a single sentence is pretty much impossible. It’s been interesting, actually, to see the reviews where we’ve been called everything from post-metal and…

Scanner

By Axel Julius Our new album is a Best of. B-sides the normal Best of compilation on CD1, we re-recorded 10 classics of ours on CD2. We are a German power, speed metal Band. For this album, our seventh one, we just changed some arrangement for the re-recorded songs and so a writing process was…

Lonewolf

Raised on Metal By Jens Börner Our musical backgrounds are the whole German scene of the ’80s.

Nervecell

The warning by Barney Ribeiro In comparison to our previous albums, I’d say we’ve experimented a little more this time around both in the way we approached writing these new songs and with the finer details like adding ambiences and atmospheres into the music. We’ve added a bit more room for creating a sense of…

The Loom of Time

Art is Manipulation by Matthew J. Ratcliffe The Loom of Time is a novel blend of black metal, death metal and doom – music that constantly forges forward, but keeps its roots in the unassailable heritage of rock and heavy metal. In a world of passionless, formulaic music, Loom gives us a glimpse of what…

Fvneral Fvkk

Severe crucifix-masturbation By Frater Flagellum Everyone in the band has lots of years of experience in other bands. Even though “Lecherous Liturgies” is the very first release of Fvneral Fvkk, we sure are no noobs to the game. Each of us has released several albums before, and we have toured a lot. We were (and…

The Pod

By Scott Endres of MAKE I usually just tell people it’s ‘blackened industrial’ because I really have no idea how to describe it. But the word ‘industrial’ has such a specific connotation I never feel like that sits quite right either, even though Pigface’s ‘Gub’ is easily a touchstone for The Pod. It’s really just…

Throne of Heresy

The Black Death by Thomas Clifford The Swedish blackened death metal act Throne of Heresy was formed in Ostrogothia in 2009.

Darkenhold

Memoria Sylvarum By Cervantes and Aldébaran Cervantes: Darkenhöld is a group that draws its sources in the black metal of the ’90s mainly, without forgetting the reference to the founding groups of the genre like Bathory, Celtic Frost, etc… for my part I discovered black metal in 1995, before beginning to listen seriously in 1996.…
