Thormesis : Von Leere und Tod , brief review


Thormesis :  Von Leere und Tod

Band name: Thormesis

Thormesis is a German band that plays a very emotional form of black and pagan metal. The riffs but also the bass guitar sound dark and heavy. The fast drum passages are completely insane but also technically intriguing without sounding to progressive and make listeners go crazy. The band doesn't forget to include atmospheric and calm passages in their bleak and thundering madness. These moments are short, efficient and very important as they give you a short break from the blizzering darkness. Apart of the harmonious introduction and the Grabfeld cover, the songs are all really long and

Depressed Mode : ..for Death.. , brief review


Depressed Mode : ..for Death..

Band name: Depressed Mode

I couldn’t possibly review this album without at least giving a quick mention to the band name. Seriously, gotta love it! Despite the lugubrious nature, you have to assume a certain sense of humour is at work here, although as far as the music goes, it’s clear these guys aren’t joking around. Equally, if you are expecting this to suck out every last drop of serotonin from your brain then you are going to be sorely disappointed. Depressed Mode (I really am trying to take this name seriously, honest) have previously escaped my radar, although I can tell you that, having listened to a couple of

Depressed Mode : Ghosts of Devotion , brief review


Depressed Mode :  Ghosts of Devotion

Band name: Depressed Mode

Autumn is upon us. Dark, lonely evenings of cold and despair and raging storms are awaiting mankind. Depressed Mode seems to me like a lake with its dark lonely waters edged by moonlight. The first September storm is keeping me inside and while listening to Depressed Mode’s debut album I realize that the music borrows the mad cadence of that storm. These beautiful and mournful compositions make harmony in my quiet soul. Ossy Salonen’s arrangements captivate me and lead me to a new dimension where I find total peace and relaxation. After 51 minutes and 15 seconds this spellbinding journey

Pendulous : Mirrored Confessions , brief review


Pendulous : Mirrored Confessions

Band name: Pendulous

When I listen to metal, I like to connect my audio system up to a lie detector machine to see whether bands truly feel their lyrics, or if it is all just an act for the sake of aesthetics. Pendulous’ “Mirrored Confessions” is my new standard for complete truth, because the heartfelt music on this EP is completely overflowing with genuine doomy sorrow. This feeling is primarily conveyed through the somber singing of E.R.M., but the entire band works well together to create an emotionally weighty release of slow and solemn metal. This dirge of an EP essentially has two songs with the first

Mythological Cold Towers : Remoti Meridiani Hymni: Towards the Magnificent Realm of the Sun

Band name: Mythological Cold Towers

Utter travesty is the only way to describe this excuse for an album. Where once stood a might pillar of Doomdeath now stands the worst excuse for Bal-Sagoth cloning EVER!!!! The guitars are speedy and melodic and a bit less heavy than on the first release. This also goes for the bass and the drums. This is wouldn't be a bad thing if the band had decided to play something original, like they did with their first album. This CD is nothing but Bal-Sagoth worship in its worst form. They borrow heavily from the aforementioned taking the visual aspect a bit farther with their costumes. The vocals

Mythological Cold Towers : Sphere of Nebaddon: The Dawn of a Dying Tyffereth

Band name: Mythological Cold Towers

Mythological Cold Towers, a lengthy name for a band but an interesting choice. The name of the band fits the mood of the music (doom/death) which was a plus for me. I'm tired of bands called Powerfighter, and they end up having a weak sound. In terms of this release these guys do a good job of getting both doom and death elements in their without too much of a genre clash. The drums are double bass beats but they aren't blazing fast like death metal. The guitars are slower in nature but they have some quicker passages here and there. I also like how the guitars sound distant, like they are

Necroart : The Opium Visions , brief review


Necroart :  The Opium Visions

Band name: Necroart

I’m not really into melodic death metal; if I want melody, I listen to some classical music, or Pink Floyd. Death metal and melody don’t blend well for me. This album, however, is positively brilliant. It has a unique, melancholic sound that I’ve yet to hear from another album. Each track has its own sound and feeling, but they all seem to have the ability to adhere to your memory and make you crave for more. The first track, The Crimson Minority, isn’t exactly a killer opener, and doesn’t do the rest of the album justice. That said, it’s a solid six minutes worth of wonderful melody and

Melechesh : As Jerusalem Burns... Al'Intisar , brief review


Melechesh :  As Jerusalem Burns... Al'Intisar

Band name: Melechesh

The album starts off with an intro, which like many other intros was completely unnecessary, something that didn’t quite make my hopes go up through the ceiling. Then the first real song starts, “Sultan of Mischief”, which almost made me crap my pants. With its fierce anger and rawness, it was like a pair of Dr. Martens boots shoved right up in the family jewels. One could also put it this way: It was fucking stunning. Black metal with a touch of Middle-Eastern traditional music was something I had never heard before, and this made me realize how much I had actually missed it. Almost every

Melechesh : Djinn , brief review


Melechesh :  Djinn

Band name: Melechesh

This is a solid effort from the first Palestinian band I have ever heard. While I do agree that a lot of bands have used a lot of the oriental melodies to an extreme, Melechesh is a hell of a lot better at doing this than most, probably because they are from a culture where this is imbedded in their minds from an early age. Also, they don't just use the melodies. Instead, they base their riffs and drum beats around them, which makes Melechesh quite original. There a lot more agressive than most "ethnic" band, as well. "Genies, Sorcerors and Mesopotamian Nights" is a great way to start the

Melechesh : Sphynx , brief review


Melechesh :  Sphynx

Band name: Melechesh

This last year was an especially bad one for my interest in new metal bands, as I have mainly been focusing on getting older releases. All the blast attack/grind, and "core" type stuff has been really pissing me off, because when I hear metal, I want riffs and memorable songs, not just buzz drive overkill blur shit. As with Akercocke's Choronzon, Melechesh's Sphynx is restoring my faith in the new generation of metal. This is such a masterpiece that I am almost at a loss for words. Read my review of their previous album, Djinn, for a more complete description of their style, because Sphynx
