Review: “Time To Pass Away” by Dantalion

Releasing an album almost every two years since their 2006 debut “When the Ravens Fly over Me“, the return of Galician Atmospheric Black Metal outfit Dantalion with an album recorded among sanitary lockdowns should come as no surprise. What does is the return of Sanguinist to the role of vocalist after seven years in the

Forged in the fires of a Romanian summer in Comanesti, Bacău County in 2019, Black Metal trio Grohot chose the title of their debut EP “Creatio ex Nihilo” which translates from Latin “Creation from nothing” and represents the aesthetics of their project which tells of myths and symbols from both Romanian folklore and Universal Culture.

Review: “Songs and Tales of Grievance” by Dimman

In October 2019, the debut EP “152” from Finnish Melodic Death Metallers Dimman was fresh from hell’s gate, the band having moved from a quintet to a six piece to accommodate a second vocalist in Jenna Kohtala.

Recorded at Gomes’s home studio in Idaho,

Review: “Anguish” by Fraktions (5th Anniversary)

Our annual pilgrimage to Newark Showground for Tech-Fest began in July 2017 and we haven’t looked back since, the absence of the festival for two consecutive years due to the Great Plague considered a crime against humanity in these parts. So rather than cry into our collective empty pint glasses, we decided that to bring

Last summer saw Calgary Alberta Canada’s Mace cut down their ambitions for a 7 track long player of Metallic Hardcore laced with Deathcore, Beatdown and Slam influences and instead unveil “Paranoia“, consisting of five blistering tracks including “Narcissist” that features a guest vocal appearance from Jesse Bartlet of Infidus. Eight months on and in the absence of
