The orange demons of Finland do not really need much of an introduction following the release of their 2013 full-length Valonielu. At the time Valonielu saw the band reaching, what was thought at the time, its peak. Taking a psychedelic twist on black metal, and with disregard to boundaries between

LORD MANTIS is fucking back, and their soon to be released EP entitled NTW is just as sonically diseased as their previous works! They are one band that has a trademark sound that makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand to attention. I really don’t care about

The paths of Boris and Merzbow have crossed many times in the past. So many in fact, that “Boris with Merzbow” can almost be considered a different project from the four musicians, instead of a collaboration between two different bands/projects. Studio albums and live recordings, it does not matter what,

Wolvserpent tread the path of darkness throughout the epic notations of Aporia:Kāla:Ananta, a single track spanning forty minutes of lush violin, doomed elegance and shadowed passages. Brittany McConnell and Blake K. Green recorded the work after the release of Perigaea Antahkarana in 2013, although seemingly it was written long before

When it comes to Rangda’s third album, The Heretic’s Bargain, Sir Richard Bishop, Ben Chasny, and Chris Corsano speak a business-as-usual musicianship. Rangda’s press release says different, “They planted a False Flag in the blood-soaked turf of the contemporary rock-politik. They were Formerly Extinct before you ever even THOUGHT about

The Body is one of my favorite active bands at the moment and has been for the past several years, primarily because of their uncanny ability to completely alter the atmosphere of any setting through their music. The vile aural sickness that they produce is packed with so much dense

HOWLS OF EBB’s sound has no father or mother, meaning that it was born out of them only, with no influence from others. Just as much as this band’s music is morbid and grim, there is something so free in what they create. In order to manifest the kind of audio experimentation, they must

Some music makes you travel outside of your reality, while other music makes you travel inside of your reality. Then there is music that makes you travel to unknown space and time. PYLAR is one of those bands whose music will make you lose all sense of reality, because only thing

2015 bore a lot of fruit for The Body: releasing three collaborative efforts (my personal favorite being ‘xoroAHbin’ with Vampillia), touring and recording with Full Of Hell, and recording a new solo album on top of it. How? How do you guys find all the creative energy and time to

Crushing waves of dirge are washing over me as I listen to their cover of Leonard Cohen’s “The Butcher” from the upcoming The Body and Full of Hell collabo album entitled One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache. What’s a trip about this tune is that it has a creepy as fuck Screaming Jay
