    Cologne’s best ever (!!!) in Black-Metal are returning with an epic EP that blows your mind and soul. It seems as if this one is their last release, but there could not be a better way to say goodbye!!!

  • SIBIIR - Ropes

    04 Oct 2019 - Thorsten

    SIBIIR are from Norway. They like black metal. And Siberia. So what kind of music do you expect? Doomy, glistening sounds? Or explosive, harsh shredding? Well, SIBIIR are neither, performing neither doom nor chaos.

  • A//tar - Hallowed

    06 Sep 2019 - Thorsten

    The Pacific Northeast of the USA. Home to early metal and grunge and blackgaze. Sometimes home to some at the same time. A//tar (pronounced Altar) is a good example of such a combination building their sound on equal foundations of blackgaze and grunge.

  • Kvelgeyst - Alkahest

    12 Jun 2019 - Thorsten

    Another project by highly productive Swiss Black-Metal collective Helvetic Underground Committee, Kvelgeyst focuses on a very early phase of Black Metal musically. We hear straightforward old-school-black-metal much in the vein of Bathory and less in the Celtic Frost-sense.

  • À L'Ombre D´Héméra - En Route Vers Le Grand Vide (EP)

    21 May 2019 - Thorsten

    Post-Metal is a genre that definitely needs no more introduction. There have been so many variations upon the loud-quiet-dynamic, the calm-before-the-storm-image, the wave-upon-wave-comparisons. Isis, Aereogramme, Neurosis, you name it. And yet, there is something gripping about that genre when well-done.

  • Brutus - Nest

    29 Mar 2019 - Knut

    In 2017 the Belgian band Brutus burst into the metal scene with their acclaimed debut album. Two years later they release their sophomore full length, Nest. In the two years between these albums, Brutus has developed their musical style almost turning to Post-Metal. To call a band such as Brutus a power trio is fitting, but it is almost an understatement.

  • Dakhma - Hamkar Atonement

    28 Sep 2018 - Thorsten

    A band from Zurich releases music about Zoroastrianism and Zurvanism and enrobes it in highly rhythmically Black Metal with so much punch and groove that it is sometimes hard to take in – that is Dakhma!

  • Urgeist - Aus Klammen Tiefen Und Felsigen Furchen

    20 Mar 2017 - Thorsten

    It all starts with field recordings, some acoustic guitar parts, the mouth’s harp, some tambourine parts and then – silence. The silence before the storm. And that storm starts right with track two on Urgeist’s debut album Aus Klammen Tiefen Und Felsigen Furchen (‘From Damp Ravines And Rocky Gorges’).

  • Amenra - Live Records

    29 Oct 2012 - Thorsten

    Amenra is a phenomenon – their music is so experimental that it will leave you speechless whenever you see them. Capturing this was the aim of three different live-records by now. Each one is a different – not only the setlists but also in the sense of the band’s performance.
