Album Reviews

In a sidestep from his usual boundary breaking noise mongering from Gnaw Their Tongues Maurice de Jong retraces his roots to its doomy beginnings with this celebration of classic old school death doom that is the Sombre’s debut ‘Into The Beckoning Wilderness’

Paradise Lost’s sonic architecture is still bound by the modern fashion of melodic gothic/doom, thus they seal their 16th chapter leaving you overshadowed in eerie silence.

Temple of Void is taking gradual progress shaping up their trademarks by every album, highly recommended for fans of Paradise Lost, Asphyx and Hooded Menace.

Reflections is an outstanding illustration of epic doom metal that showcases the artistic and exceptional talent of the trio.

This actually shows a different prospect of how Strigoi was formed, this is yet another vessel where Gregor Mackintosh exposes his creativity and talent.

Pulchra Morte blends the melodies with aggression and they do it with quality.

Ossuarium’s “Living Tomb” is an album that lives up to the hype. And can surely withstand the erosion of time and space, I would proudly place this album right beside Disma’s debut album “Towards the Megalith”.

Bloodbath still sounds filthy, morbid and brutal with technical qualities, this is a perfect record for fans of rotten old school death metal!!!

After shattering their own status as grandmasters of gothic doom a few years earlier with the groundbreaking, yet unorthodox ‘One Second’, they upped the ante and did away with their metal pedigree altogether on the daring, yet almost unanimously scorned ‘Host’.

Vintersorg takes us on a journey back to the roots of their musical journey that started in 1998… but with a little twist!
