Transiency : Abominations Of Civilization (EP)


Transiency : Abominations Of Civilization (EP)

Band name: Transiency

From the same stable as Hell Muñeco, amongst others, Transiency is one of the bands recently falling under bassist/vocalist Frank Wells' compilation of his musical associations into the Gentle Exhuming Records banner. The band is now on indefinite hold, this 2013 sophomore EP release representing their last recorded work. Debut EP 'Manqualm', from back in 2007, set a blueprint for early-Paradise Lost/My Dying Bride style Gothic Death/Doom, with the guitar of Giorgio Todesco heavily front and centre of the sound. 'Abominations Of Civilization', recorded with an almost completely different

Ghost Bath : Funeral


Ghost Bath :  Funeral

Band name: Ghost Bath

A random hunting session in Bandcamp this weekend netted me Beijing post-metal outfit Ghost Bath's first LP, Funeral, now on the bestsellers list on Bandcamp. After listening to this, the biggest regret I have about it is that I didn't hear such a darkly beautiful album earlier this year. I could say that Funeral is roughly akin to a heavier, more blackened Agalloch without the nature themes, but that doesn't really do its haunting post-black-metal soundscapes justice. Judging only from the Facebook page, one-man act Wúmíng (无名) spends a lot of time thinking about his musical subject matter;

Black Cilice: Mysteries - Genre : Metal albums reviews

Black Cilice: Mysteries


Black Cilice: Mysteries

Band name: Black Cilice

Portugal’s Black Cilice is no stranger to raw sounding black metal. There’s something about that rebellious garage or basement sound that really can attack the right nerve. Mysteries is Black Cilice’s latest album, the third full length to be exact. While the album may contain that raw black metal essence, it lacked much to come back for. The album begins with a raw crunch, but quickly dives into some quick blast beating. An echoing ring likes to fill the air in this track, giving it a kind of melancholic or atmospheric touch. However, it seems this sound finds its way into every single

Caelestia : Beneath Abyss


Caelestia :  Beneath Abyss

Band name: Caelestia

After playing as a supporting act for some bigger names, Greek newcomers Caelestia have their first LP out under their new name -- and their new genre, female-fronted melodeath. I wouldn't say the album breaks out of the genre's conventions, but if the songwriting is not groundbreaking, the songwriting shows some promise. The production is modern and slick, but the guitar riffing doesn't stand out, and the band opts for the Nightwish-style "Beauty and the Beast" duo of a harsh male death metal voice and lead vocalist Dimitra Vintsou. Her ethereally piping vocals are quite listenable when

Annysia : Nephilim - Genre : Metal albums reviews

Annysia : Nephilim


Annysia : Nephilim

Band name: Nephilim

Annysia is a Symphonic Power Metal band from Spain, led by lead vocalist, Rose Mack. The obligatory instrumental, The Essence Of A New Born Star is a well written one, that builds up tension in the beginning of the disc much like a movie soundtrack to an epic battle movie. The operatic stylings of Mack can be heard immediately over a harpischord-laden keyboard effect before the rest of the band kicks in. She definitely has a style of her own, and the music behind her is well played. The highest range of her vocals on this song, show her range, though I think an octave lower is more in her

Old Witch : Come Mourning Come


Old Witch : Come Mourning Come

Band name: Old Witch

Canadian doom one-man show Old Witch was introduced to me as a re-release by a "small batch" label (Sun & Moon Records) that specializes in low-quantity, high-quality dark releases. I don't usually say much about the labels who give us these promos, but if Old Witch's debut, Come Mourning Come, is part of their master plan, it must be a hell of a good plan. You can forget about hearing melancholia on this album; slow and crushing though it might be, this is no sorrowful march to the burial ground, but a rage-filled scream of loss. Funeral Rain starts the album off, after a slow

Gouge : Beyond Death


Gouge : Beyond Death

Band name: Gouge

Gouge have released a debut album! The title is a bit of a misnomer, because there is nothing ‘beyond’ about it; old school death metal sums it up. But note that it is not “old school death metal” of the dank and “cavernous” variety that is currently all the rage. Instead, it is full of short, punchy tracks (often two minutes or less) which brim with sweaty, punk-influenced energy. Repulsion, maybe, or even the grunting style of Autopsy, albeit with faster tempos. Nothing outstays its welcome. The riffing on Breath of the Reaper hooks me in every time I play the album; only 2:24 in length,

Dødsfall : Kaosmakt


Dødsfall : Kaosmakt

Band name: Dødsfall

Holy black metal, batman! Dødsfall are perhaps as typical as Norwegian black metal gets, from the black-and-white trees and corpsepainted figures on their earlier album covers to their old-Darkthrone-on-speed sound. Still, there's no denying that this sort of thing satisfies a definite need when done well, and this duo are good at what they do. Fast, blasting, and most definitely keyboard-free, Kaosmakt has a subtle rocking thrash influence notable that makes it a very enjoyable listen, although the lack of depth elsewhere makes it a short-term love rather than one I'll still be praising come
