Forgotten Tomb > Under Saturn Retrograde , brief review


Forgotten Tomb > Under Saturn Retrograde

Band name: Forgotten Tomb

Though they’ve been steadily gaining steam in the Italian scene since the turn of the century, …and Don’t Deliver Us from Evil is my first exposure to this odd musical conglomeration. I gather that once upon a time Forgotten Tomb were rooted in the more basic aesthetics of black metal, but that tendency seems to have shifted, along with the years, into a weighty mish-mash of melodic black, death, and doom, having as much in common with the hefty, sweeping sorrow of Insomnium as the icy winds of Dissection, when all is said and done. There are also numerous sections that feel spiritually

Shining > VII: Född förlorare

Band name: Shining

Finally, after more than a goddamned year of waiting I finally get to hear Shining’s seventh album… “VII: Född Förlorare”! Yes! And you even thought that “Blackjazz” is their seventh album, huh? Very hilarious every time I think about it, actually. You, thinking that they have a new logo, new sound, new lyrical themes, new look… ha ha ha! Ignorance ain’t much bliss after all, huh? Well, before my thoughts get lost through all that reminiscence, well, I presume you know these guys already, unless you’ve been living in a faraway cave for more than ten years already. Unlike former albums, “VII:

Shining : Redefining Darkness , brief review


Shining : Redefining Darkness

Band name: Shining

I’ve been a fan of Shining for years but this release amazed me. Kvarforth can be considered the brain behind the music of Shining since he formed the band in 1996 at the age of 12 and have been playing most of the instruments on the records as well as being the vocalist. I must admit that the first albums have not really been much in my taste and Shinings fourth album “The Eerie Cold” that was released in year 2005 was probably their breakthrough. The band has a lot of progressive elements in their music and the band is also a part of the dsbm – depressive/suicidal – black metal wave and you

Macabre Omen : The Ancient Returns , brief review


Macabre Omen :  The Ancient Returns

Band name: Macabre Omen

This is the latest LP that is stuck in my turntable for hours now and I can see it staying there for weeks. First of all this is an Obscure Abhorrence production so you know what to expect, very rarely Obscure Abhorrence lets a metal fan down. Secondly the music is simply awesome. Fast, melodic and epic black metal with slow tempos at some points and very heavy riffs. There are also some acoustic guitar breaks with keyboards at the background which give a majestic and ancient feeling to this recording. But what really makes the difference I believe is the melody. Most parts of the album are

Macabre Omen : Gods of War - At War , brief review


Macabre Omen :  Gods of War - At War

Band name: Macabre Omen

The band has gone through a fair amount of line up shifts; initially performing as a two piece, bulking to a four piece, dropping back to a trio and eventually turning into a one man project when founding member Alexandros moved from Greece to England. In 2015, once again as a two piece, Macabre Omen released Gods of War – At War, which, despite their twenty plus years of existence, is only their second full length album. The band released three demos in the mid ’90s and their debut album, The Ancient Returns, dropped in 2005. Macabre Omen is probably best known for their split album

Vivus Humare : Prolog , brief review


Vivus Humare : Prolog

Band name: Vivus Humare

The idea of concept albums is not new in the music respectively metal scene. Hardly a year passes in which not at least one album of this kind is released, but the actual style in which this is done differs greatly. Vivus Humare is quite a young band and on their first album, they already try to drift into the regions of a more advanced and complex song-writing. ‘Prolog’ is quite different and not an easy-listening. It wants to be discovered and the different approaches to create Black Metal just wait for someone to shed light on the conceptual framework that lies hidden behind the many

Vivus Humare : Einkehr , brief review


Vivus Humare : Einkehr

Band name: Vivus Humare

Founded in 2007, but only with the demo “Prolog” (2008) in their discography, the German black metallers Vivus Humare are starting 2015 with the debut “Einkehr” which is released at the end of January by the also German label Eisenwald. In spite of the record’s fast and cold beginning, the band’s creativity evolves and supporting a full-bodied guitar we have some loose and echoed notes delivered by another guitar. And when black metal is not only fastness, we have calmed and gelid moments offered by a whispering voice. In this first track “Der Schmerz weckt” there is a long, repetitive and

Wilderun : Olden Tales & Deathly Trails , brief review


Wilderun :  Olden Tales & Deathly Trails

Band name: Wilderun

Often times I've wondered what would it have been like if a band like Turisas had been founded in New England rather than Finland. While this obviously didn't come into being, a band from Boston called Wilderun have gotten about as close to making it so as possible, while simultaneously avoiding the trap of becoming an overt tag-along singing about Nordic tales. This is a band that has taken a Northern European style and moved it in a direction for easier accessibility to an American audience that hasn't encountered it before, utilizing the same general arrangement and stylistic techniques as

Clandestine Blaze : Fist of the Northern Destroyer , brief review


Clandestine Blaze :  Fist of the Northern Destroyer

Band name: Clandestine Blaze

No atmosphere. Just a very hollow sound of death and hate. To catagorize by example, this is the soundtrack to rolling down the streets of Iraq in a tank killing anything that lives (if your against war, why the fuck are you reading a black metal review?). This is BM for the manly-man, the "lumberjack-type." The music ranges from slow to mid-paced (seldomly fast), and is somewhat in the traditional black metal vein. "Traditional" is a vague term, allow me to specify that it is brutal, without compromise, audial death that presents no atmosphere except the urge to kill and rape. The lyrics are
