Album Reviews

After a 12 year hiatus, Manchester’s slowest and heaviest band, Atavist, is back on its feet with a new record deal on Candlelight Records and their third fully length album, the murky mammoth, ‘III: Absolution’.

After the acoustic pilgrimage that was ‘Hallowing of Heirdom’, Manchester’s bards of black metal, Winterfylleth, have returned to their olden ways of yore on ‘The Reckoning Dawn’.

As far as musical valentine gifts go they don’t get much sweeter than this. Ihsahn has just released the first of two EPs dedicated to his hometown of Telemark in Norway.

With all the celebration around the 20th anniversary of Emperor’s magnum opus ‘ Anthems of the Welkins at Dusk’ you might almost be forgiven for forgetting that Ihsahn has been running a very successful solo career for more than a decade.

After a silence of three years, British thrashband Shrapnel is back with a vengeance. With their second album “Raised On Decay”, prepare for a thrash attack that won’t leave any survivors after listening.
