Paid Charons Fare : Mourn (EP) , brief review


Paid Charons Fare : Mourn (EP)

Band name: Paid Charons Fare

Now, this is nice: very much so, in fact. Not 'nice', in the sense of Tennyson's jolly romps, like "And then my heart with pleasure fills/ And dances with the daffodils": think more along the lines of Byron's gloomy lament "And thou art dead, as young and fair/As aught of mortal birth", and take 'nice' to mean 'exquisitely dismal'. That's if any such qualification is needed after a glance at the graveyard angel statue of the cover - a monument, watching over ranks of crumbling headstones, with timeless and forlorn serenity. Nothing new in that, obviously: it's pretty much a certainty that

GOWLOn : he talked to me like I was real , brief review


GOWLOn : he talked to me like I was real

Band name: GOWLOn

Doom is a strange beast to properly define these days, stretching, as it does, between the far distant shores of glacier-slow total noise and gallopingly anthemic riff festivals. Even attempting to view Extreme and Trad styles as different beasts entirely doesn't narrow it down much: within both camps lie enough variety to make the genre boundaries more of an abstract attitude than a set of clear musical attributes. Sometimes, I see it most simply as an absence of any other, more rigid, label - the poor, dispossessed bastard musical children of disparate parents, united only by a stubbornly

R.E.T. : Coming Soon... , brief review


R.E.T. : Coming Soon...

Band name: R.E.T.

Reaction Extasy Trance are a long-running Czech ensemble playing accessible, professionally polished Gothic Metal, weaving an appealingly upbeat sound that draws influence from bands like Tiamat and Theatre of Tragedy. In their third decade of activity, R.E.T. have modernized a bit from their '90s roots while still offering the requisite sense of musical darkness. Currently an eight-piece, R.E.T.'s new album (and sixth overall), 'Coming Soon...', is a vocal showcase given solid support by a very capable band. Lead-off track 'Dialog' opens softly, with a gorgeous and patient synthesizer intro

Opium Warlords : Taste My Sword Of Understanding , brief review


Opium Warlords : Taste My Sword Of Understanding

Band name: Opium Warlords

Opium Warlords is the brainchild of Sami Albert Hynninen, AKA Albert Witchfinder, former bass player and vocalist for the seminal Finnish Traditional Doom metal band Reverend Bizarre. This latest effort from the musical manufacturing plant of Mr. Hynninen sees a continuation to the legacy of Reverend Bizarre in parts. The other, non-traditional-doom moments oscillate between the peculiar, the shamanic and the avant-garde. In general, this is Traditional Doom metal done pretty well, flirting with Drone fillers and Stoner/bluesy sections which you may not care for. The album also takes the very

Gorilla Monsoon : Firegod - Feeding The Beast

Band name: Gorilla Monsoon

Ever plugged a guitar in and starting jamming? Something appears that sounds pretty cool, and you keep it going before finally imagining those drums kicking in when the band next get together - nice one. Suddenly though, seemingly out of nowhere, you've got Pepper Keenan ringing in your ears and you realise rather forlornly that you've been playing something very close to 'Albatross' by COC. If only... You won't have been the first to quite innocently and subliminally conjure up other peoples riffs and you certainly won't be the last. Gorilla Monsoon definitely have, and they've put most of

Deveikuth : VII​-​π​-​III

Band name: Deveikuth

One of the more delightful things about being here is the variety of music which lands in my inbox every week: hugely popular (by Doom standards, at least) bands, rubbing shoulders with completely unknown names, spanning every part of the spectrum (and beyond, even if, sadly, there's often no time to spare for further exploration of these latter). Sure, plenty of them fall into some sort of 'sounds like...' or 'heard it all before...', or drop into the abyss of the unexceptional, but it's still heartening how many bands strive to produce something new, worthwhile and individual by rearranging

Saturnian Mist : Repellings , brief review


Saturnian Mist : Repellings

Band name: Saturnian Mist

"The Manifestation" is the briefest of these three pieces, just over 8 minutes in length and comprised of almost all charging material that spiked away at your mind and tolerance like an ice pick. The guitar riffs are of the very familiar sort that populates most black metal, simple chord progressions that are repeated and occasionally emphasized through a melody. Not a terrible way to kill time, but not memorable. "A Call in the House of Malign" is slower and about the same length, plodding away like a laborer carrying a bag of concrete while harsh overseers howl darkness at his ears. My

Saturnian Mist : Gnostikoi Ha-Shaitan , brief review


Saturnian Mist : Gnostikoi Ha-Shaitan

Band name: Saturnian Mist

The first track catches your attention quickly with a crushing riff that makes you want to mosh it up. And if that wasn't enough, the guitar comes in with a lead that just makes the whole section that much cooler. And the whole reason the word thrash comes to mind at all is at 4:31 of the first song, "The Regicide" when the drums kick it in to a up beat mid tempo and unleash the head banging. Overall the guitar leads is what really makes this whole album. If they were to release an album that was just crushing black riffs with their awesome leads everyone would be happy as fuck. The vocals

Drudkh : Борозна обірвалася (A Furrow Cut Short) , brief review


Drudkh : Борозна обірвалася (A Furrow Cut Short)

Band name: Drudkh

Do you know who the band Drudkh is? I unsurprisingly doubt it. Ukraine is not a country where heavy metal thrives like in the UK or Scandinavia, and Drudkh is not an outspoken band that draws attention to them. They play no live shows, have no political agenda and support no extreme or violent beliefs. In a country where politics and violence unfortunately sustain, Drudkh have the potential to become underground legends however their public coy has led them to become more of a cult name in the black metal world. Out of the darkness comes a slaughter of harsh yet pristine howls from Thurios

Forgotten Tomb > Springtime Depression , brief review


Forgotten Tomb > Springtime Depression

Band name: Forgotten Tomb

I've listened the album "Love's Burial Ground", and I was thinking of it as one of my favorite depressive black metal releases, but I guess I was wrong. Springtime Depression is a very great cold release and its not just a normal album. this album is just another excellent shred of fathomless darkness. The members tried to release the depression weight of their minds, but nothing can ever release these tons of pains. By using both traditional and the black dark doom styles, Forgotten Tomb absorb the listener in a world without compromise. The music is very rich and varied, there is a real
