Clandestine Blaze : Fire Burns in Our Hearts

Band name: Clandestine Blaze

This is where it all began for Mikko and for Clandestine Blaze. Sure, there were a procession of demos before 'Fire Burns In Our Hearts' came along, but I tend to focus all my energies on full-lengths, as opposed to all those small releases. 'Fire Burns In Our Hearts' is where it all began. It was where the sound of Clandestine Blaze began to take it's shape. For me, anyway, I see this album, 'Fire Burns In Our Hearts' as a mere stepping stone in the career of this Finnish one man outfit. It's experimental to a degree. How so? Well, it's the very first shot at making a black metal album that

Clandestine Blaze : Night of the Unholy Flames

Band name: Clandestine Blaze

"Night of the Unholy Flames" is the second full-length from Clandestine Blaze, who stand as one of the elite not only in the finnish Black Metal scene, but worldwide... This release manages to take the concept that began on "Fire Burns In Our Hearts" and perfect it. Everything here has improved by leaps and bounds. The production is far better, while still being raw as hell. The guitar sound is fucking perfect, and very sharp. The vocals are not as high-pitched as you may expect from this music, but it fits very nicely. This is the legacy of Darkthrone, Burzum and Hellhammer without simple

Immortal Souls : Under the Northern Sky , brief review


Immortal Souls : Under the Northern Sky

Band name: Immortal Souls

I was impressed right from the beginning of the first track. The technical prowess is amazing. (True some bands are even more technically proficient, but these guys definitely know their stuff). But even more, the sense of aesthetic beauty and melody amidst the brutality is fantastic. It is one of the reasons I love this album: the combination of ability, aggression, beauty, and dynamic make it memorable and enjoyable. Track after track, the album continues to shine with fast melodic thrash (like "Dark Night Beneath The Northern Sky," and "Frostmind"), slow and mournful lament (like

Immortal Souls : Ice upon the Night , brief review


Immortal Souls :  Ice upon the Night

Band name: Immortal Souls

This is extremely heavy / power oriented melodic death. The vocals may be mutilated, raspy growls, but the music is uplifting and the leads are some of the best I’ve heard in the genre. With “best” we’re not talking the most intricately crafted or technical, but damn catchy and thoughtful enough to continue onward. Some songs don’t have them (“Painbearer”), and some do (“Welcome To North”) – all of the are positive with an uplifting message (these guys really like Christ), even if its just about how cool winter is cool. With this positive and chilly atmosphere, the music itself is actually,

Immortal Souls : Wintereich , brief review


Immortal Souls : Wintereich

Band name: Immortal Souls

Christian band, paying homage to COB’s early days better than COB did in their own prime. This album is very reminiscent of Children Of Bodom’s Follow The Reaper without any of the flamboyant keys or annoying “WHOOOAAA!” vocals. Going deeper into the album, there are more traits from COB’s later material as well to be heard, but the execution remains straightforward without forgetting the power metal roots. When the instances of modern metal come into play, it really is a drop in quality, but Immortal Shadows don’t let it take over too much. The overall tone is much darker than previous

Ordoxe : Nihil , brief review


Ordoxe :  Nihil

Band name: Ordoxe

During Easter season, it is natural to discuss resurrection, a phenomenon that applies perfectly to the Quebec group Ordoxe. After a long gestation and two albums released in 2006 and 2007, the group became silent due to the success of its “brother band” Slaotvean. After the dissolution of the latter in 2011, a miracle occurs and Ordoxe came back to life, launching a third album called Nihil. Ordoxe’s members ensure to provide a lasting first impression to their listeners with a narrative introduction pronounced in an incomprehensible language, really aggressive for an ear accustomed to

Ordoxe : Beyond Mankind , brief review


Ordoxe : Beyond Mankind

Band name: Ordoxe

Stylistically these guys are (oddly) informed by everything from Bathory to At the Gates, and it can be quite something to experience, as in the opener 'Obsessions' which is probably one of the coolest songs I heard this year: that solo that gets booted up in 'Obsessions', followed by the snapping, harmonized riff that catches you totally off-guard after the Quorthon-inspired opening, is really quite something. They escalated the fuck out of this song and really nailed it. 'Exiled Archangels' draws a few mournful leads and tempos from the books of doom metal, and 'Tel un arbre' has this dire,

Nyseius : Militiae

Band name: Nyseius

To be honest, my passion for heavily blasting, brutal black metal has begun to null through the years. It's not that I don't appreciate the sheer will and energy the form requires, but I feel it often throws a band up against a wall. It's all been done, by the Norse and the Swedish, the Polish, the French and the Finns, so it falls upon a band to write riffs so amazingly intuitive, destructive and memorable that they can overcome the monotony of the blasting, and said wall becomes nearly impossible to scale. I mention this with regards to the French band Nyseius because, as orthodox and

Vanhelga :  Längtan

Band name: Vanhelga

Though these Swedes have been around since just after the turn of the century, and started getting active with releases around 2010, I hadn't actually heard them until I sampled their Sommer EP last year. From the looks of the band in some of the pics I've seen, I had expected some really psychotic, fucked up black metal, perhaps of the Lifelover or similar depressive variety, and to be honest that style of off-the-hinges, emotional resonance is not entirely absent from this material; not all that much a surprise since there is a former member of that band in this one. The difference is that

Vanhelga : Höst , brief review


Vanhelga : Höst

Band name: Vanhelga

This album is really the tale of two bands. The first incarnation of Vanhelga plays a fairly laid back style of black metal that’s decent, if not overly memorable. They throw in some nice vocal harmonies as well as a few faster tremolo sections, but for the most part their approach consists of mid-paced chugging guitars with slightly fuzzy production. There are some rather strange touches like spoken word sections, samples and the like, but nothing too distracting. It’s not bad, but again not overly memorable. They were apparently allocated the first five tracks of Höst, with the sixth track
