Ov Hollowness : Demo 2010

Band name: Ov Hollowness

Free downloads are a hit or miss. You do not know what you get, but the advantage of downloading free stuff is that you can get rid of the stuff easily. In case of Ov Hollowness such might not be the necessary – the latter argument –, because on their first demo they are already able to write some interesting compositions as well as create a decent atmosphere. Surprisingly, also a nine minute compositions is able to fascinate in some respect and does not come with the fallacies a lot of bands tend to web into their music: too much repetition, too many vocals etc. A lot was done right here

Lord Agheros : Of Beauty and Sadness

Band name: Lord Agheros

There is something of a pleasing contradiction at work in most ambient offshoots of metal. Barring perhaps a fleeting interest that some would have with Burzum’s music between “Filosofem” and “Belus”, our beloved art form is not commonly thought of as music to drift off into a deep sleep while hearing. Some gothic offshoots of the death/doom style might inspire a longing for solitude in a time of grief, but even the grave tempos and soft interludes between the beauty and the beast vocal interchanges don’t quite reach the level of breaking down the ivory gate of dreams. But lately a handful of

Lord Agheros : As a Sin , brief review


Lord Agheros : As a Sin

Band name: Lord Agheros

As to the genre, the label advertises Lord Agheros as 'arcane ambient black metal' and compares it to such great names as Ulver, Summoning, Vinterriket and Bathory. However, the praising attributes are, as usual, quite exaggerating. Summoning and Vinterriket can really be mentioned, but I don't hear any influence from the other two aforementioned bands. Furthermore, I wouldn't call this music black metal, since nothing binds them to this genre save the here and there sounding shrieking vocals. This is gloomy gothic / doom metal of the heavily synth-oriented kind with a lot of noise, effects

Year of No Light > Ausserwelt , brief review


Year of No Light > Ausserwelt

Band name: Year of No Light

I've been consistently impressed by the French metal scene since 2008, with some amazing things coming from the country (Gojira and Eryn Non Dae come first to my mind), with only Alcest being a minor disappointment. Their style is described on Encyclopedia Metallum as sludge/drone doom. I would have called it post-doom, but either formula adds up to the same thing: heavy, sludgy, slow, organically-developing songs. Four of them to be precise, with a total runtime over 47 minutes. The album is entirely instrumental, as many post-metal and drone doom bands tend toward vocal minimalism. But

Year of No Light : Vampyr , brief review


Year of No Light : Vampyr

Band name: Year of No Light

An internet aquaintance once described drone doom as "ambient played with metal instrumentation" and while that's something I'd often disagree with, it certainly applies here, and in the best ways possible. Indeed, Vampyr is one of the best drone doom albums I've heard in a long time- darker and deeper than the Mariana Trench, lush, beautiful, stuffed full of fascinating tones- it's a great album. Picture Tim Hecker remixing Angelic Process (that's some very high praise coming from me), or, well, perhaps Year of No Light heard Ondo's Mahavishnu and decided to do a tribute album to it.

Altar of Plagues > Mammal , brief review


Altar of Plagues > Mammal

Band name: Altar of Plagues

There is little arguing the fact that black metal is one of the most puzzling genres in music today, part of this stems from the fact that the standard of writing music for a lot of bands differs and those standards get lumped together in the form of unnecessary,nay at times ridiculous gimmicks. The other part of course is the more refreshing breadth of diversity that the bands within this genre deploy or at least certain bands do. Now why BM is so puzzling is because that said diversity itself has become a bit commonplace and so breaking above that experimentation sea has become a challenge

Altar of Plagues : Teethed Glory and Injury

Band name: Altar of Plagues

The third release from Irish pack Altar Of Plagues sees the band carrying on with the experimentation they dabbled in on Mammal and to move further from the Wolves in the Throne Room inspired style of their debut in favor of the more decaying urban post metal vibe that they’ve always had albeit in smaller amounts. As time has gone on Altar Of Plagues has become less straightforward black metal, not that they were ever in the first place but it appears that they’ve got less interest in being a conventional black metal band. Not that I have a problem with that mind you, it’s always interesting

Fangs Of The Molossus : Fangs Of The Molossus , brief review


Fangs Of The Molossus : Fangs Of The Molossus

Band name: Fangs Of The Molossus

Florentine band Fangs Of The Molossus are a four-piece describing themselves as '† Psychedelic Doom Hellhounds †'. Expect plenty of Stoner-vibed riffing, layered with plenty of effects, and space-rock interludes. Influences include Hawkwind, Loop, Swans, Danzig, and more, resulting in a sound similar to Ufomammut and Electric Wizard. I have to admit to being completely unaware of what a ‘molossus’ was, but a quick search online suggests that it was the name of a now extinct breed of dog used by the ancient Greeks and Romans for fighting and hunting. Indeed, the cover art of Fangs of the

Wardenclyffe : Control All Delete , brief review


Wardenclyffe : Control All Delete

Band name: Wardenclyffe

Formed by ex-members of The Doomsday Cult and Terrorama, Wardenclyffe are named after Nikola Tesla's experimental facility. They play Death/Doom, influenced by experience in the Death/Thrash field, with largely clean vocals and plenty of aggressive guitar-work. As a small curio, Wardenclyffe's demo from 2012 deserves a bit of a mention first of all. Released as a 'Soundtrack' to guitarist and vocalist Jacob Nordangård's doctoral thesis on "The Political History of Biofuels in the European Union", it can be safely assumed, as is claimed in their current release statement, 'it was probably the

Abysmal Growls Of Despair : Dark Days

Band name: Abysmal Growls Of Despair

Our guest of honour on the review platform today is Abysmal Growls of Despair (AGOD) - a solo-driven French Funeral Doom Metal outfit that is commandeered by an individual named Hangsvart. Considering that the band is still relatively in its early years of operation (formed in 2013), they have nevertheless managed to put out a fairly impressive number of releases. 'Dark Days' marks the band’s second full-length release and after having spent the last couple of weeks qualitatively with this album, I enthusiastically look forward to checking out the remaining spread of their doom-laden
