Melechesh : Emissaries , brief review


Melechesh :  Emissaries

Band name: Melechesh

This album has got to be one of the best albums of 2006 and the best so far released by the band. It is a perfect blend of the folky Middle Eastern black metal sound of their Djinn album and the thrashy black metal of the Sphinx album. While in most cases good production tends to harm the quallity of a Black Metal album in this case it actually enhances it; Ashmedi's raspy vocals are clearer than ever and really stand out on the album and the folky Middle Eastern riffis are of exellent clarity as well. Ashmedi's raspy vocals are clear and audiable unlike the Djinn album where you could

Melechesh : The Epigenesis , brief review


Melechesh : The Epigenesis

Band name: Melechesh

"Mesopotamian" black metal band Melechesh blew a lot of minds with 2006's Emissaries, so it's no wonder its follow-up The Epigenesis has been so widely anticipated after a four year wait. The music is clearly the Israeli expats' unique brand of thrashy, Middle Eastern-inspired black metal from the get-go. Every single track has riffs inspired by the unusual combination, and it's still just as compelling as ever. There's also a great deal of traditional instrumentation, including two instrumentals which are all-traditional and several places where it's worked into metal songs. It's also

Melechesh :  Enki

Band name: Melechesh

Coming off the back of the huge critical acclaim lauded on "The Epigenesis" one might have thought that Melechesh would be overawed by the task of trying to repeat the trick but by taking their time in the release of "Enki" the consummate detail that has defined their career remains in abundance. There is so much that pleases me about the works of Ashmedi & co but high amongst those is the layering and sophisticated usage of ethnic instrumentation which never descends into the pervading mindset of most folk(-orientated) metal bands for whom a brief synth blast of pre-processed sounds is as

Estatic Fear : A Sombre Dance , brief review


Estatic Fear :  A Sombre Dance

Band name: Estatic Fear

To begin with composition, it's simply wonderful. Various instruments like lute, piano, violoncello, organ or pipe coupled with traditional guitars, drums and basses create unique blend of melodies which are complex but simple simultaneously. Sometimes when I listen to metal, I got the feeling that riffs are there just to show how skilled the guitarist or how "technical" their sound is. Here it's a work of someone who focuses fully on capturing the atmosphere, the great thing being a fact that by doing so, music sounds authentic. During listening one constantly asks himself how it is possible

Estatic Fear :  Somnium Obmutum

Band name: Estatic Fear

A dream. A weird dream. This release seems weird by so many aspects, anyway. Simply take its enthusiastic reception, for instance. It’s just as if, as soon as a metal band looks a tad beyond the worn-out stereotypes of what this awful word, metal, means for the layman – a tall, long-haired, stinking guy shouting obscenities in front of a wall of noise – it should be welcomed with unleashed praise. All the more that I’ve hard times taking Estatic Fear as a genuine “band” to begin with – far more in the lines of a studio project. Of course, it’s not given to anyone to record an album with a

Autumnia : In Loneliness of Two Souls , brief review


Autumnia :  In Loneliness of Two Souls

Band name: Autumnia

Being curious as to what kind of doom metal is being played out in Eastern Europe, I fell upon this release. From the onset of Loneliness of Two Souls, the droning, melodic, atmospheric, dark elements of doom are all intact. Here, Autumnia has done well in building upon the elements of doom made popular by bands such as: Shape of Despair, Draconian, Funeral (Nor). Indicating by these influences (even though listed as death/doom) they are as much funeral and gothic doom as the aforementioned juggernauts. Like mentioned before they are obviously heavily influenced by the Nordic and Finnish

Autumnia : O'Funeralia , brief review


Autumnia : O'Funeralia

Band name: Autumnia

As with most doom metal records heading my way I hadn’t heard of Autumnia before (sure, I definitely love the genre, but I’m still not all that well dispersed within its underground). So it’s with an open mind I press play for the first time, and it doesn’t take long before I’ve completely fallen in love with the band. The majestic, melodic riffing could just as well be straight out of a Mourning Beloveth composition (not in the copycat manner, but with the same quality to it). But while I’m comparing this to one of my favourite doom acts I still find something that doesn’t fit the melodic

Saor : Roots , brief review


Saor :  Roots

Band name: Saor

After a short stint with scene parasites Falloch, Andy Marshall completely redeems himself with this one man monument to the natural world. Like Falloch this features very high production values and can't be called rough around the edges, but there is one major difference - this has heart. It doesn't feel watered down. Falloch took the whole post/Cascadian/blackgaze trend in black metal and made it as lightweight as possible, stripping it of all life and adding horrendous emo/alternative rock vocals just in case the album wasn't marketable enough to a non-metal crowd. The very digestible

Saor : Aura , brief review


Saor : Aura

Band name: Saor

For the second album Aura from the Scottish one man atmospheric black metal project Saor, Andrew Marshall has enlisted help of a host of guest musicians, and created an astonishingly vibrant and epic take on the genre. As majestic as this style of music gets, through epic Celtic melodies and expressive black metal, Aura takes you on a journey to the Scottish highlands and the battles that ensued there in ages gone by. Saor weave a majestic sound throughout the album. Choppy riffs make their way through the release in true black metal fashion, catchy, melodic and with the requisite trebly

Azaghal : Mustamaa , brief review


Azaghal :  Mustamaa

Band name: Azaghal

I would like to begin this review, by saying that Azaghal makes the music that stands closest to my heart. The essence of evil and coldness that enwraps this album is jaw dropping. Rarely have I stumbled on such a wicked piece of labour. Satan must be pleased. Azaghal undoubtedly suffers from a case of Darkthrone worship, and this is proudly shown throughout the record… Actually, that is not such a bad thing; things that make you want to put on one of your old Darkthrone albums should be praised. Still, a little creativity wouldn’t go amiss. As for the musicianship and vocals, Azaghal plays
