Album Reviews

Dutch black metal quintet Salacious Gods makes a surprising return with their comeback album “Oalevluuk”, a solid piece of Nordic-styled black metal out on October 6th via Hammerheart Records.

From Albion’s shores hails ‘The Devil and his Wicked Ways’, the debut album from Roots of the Old Oak’, treating you to some undistilled death doom straight from the nineties. Out on September 15 via Hammerheart Records.

Debuting with ‘Haunted Funeral Creations’, the three guys from Californian death metal outfit Conjureth are channeling their more doom inspired visions via Tumulation. Out now via Hammerheart Records.

Asphodelus’s second full length album ‘Sculpting the Time’ embodies the archaic haunting melancholy of doom death metal. The songwriting continues in the vein of the first studio album and fuses the dismal sound with a perfect dim atmosphere. Out on August 25 via Hammerheart Records.

Phlebotomized’s fourth album ‘Clouds of Confusion’ is balanced between the classic nineties style of atmospheric and melodic death metal which generates a gloomy, nostalgic mood. Their music might have changed over the years, but the band still sounds fresh and unique. Out via Hammerheart Records.

Despite a lengthy hiatus, Swedish death doom veterans Runemagick has been quite prolific again these past few years with ‘The Cenotaph of Mankind’ as the latest engraving into this monolith of doom. Out since last Friday via Hammerheart Records.

The fifth album “Evil Summons Evil” is Deviser’s most aggressive piece of modern black metal since their classic albums. Out on Hammerheart Records.

Entrails may not have offered anything new on its seventh album ‘An Eternal Time of Decay’, but there is an undeniable feel for classic Swedish death metal with songs that are equally catchy and aggressive . Out on Hammerheart Records.

Swedish black metal masters Lord Belial have returned with their ninth album ‘Rapture’ after fourteen years of silence, out on Hammerheart Records.

Sarcasm raises the bar high on the fourth album “Stellar Stream Obscured”, presenting a great deal of staggering performance.
