Last night, they played at Siberia in New Orleans with Wolvhammer and local NOLA groups Mehenet and Witch Burial. Mehenet, the more obviously Taake-influenced of the
Today I read some pretty insane news that a bacterium resistant to the strongest antibiotics has been found in a woman from Pennsylvania, making this the first ever case on US soil after reports of such a “nightmare-bacterium” having been found in China. Since antibiotics are the only known way
Just looking at the cover of Cemetery Glow, the debut release from Light of the Morning Star, you get a black metal vibe. Actually, you might even think it looks a bit like Mayhem‘s De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, with the choice of colors and the contrast. This mysterious band sure
Hallelujah, indeed. Since first discovering Gevurah sometime in 2013 after the release of their intoxicating debut EP Necheshirion, I’ve watched with interest what this two man act out of Canada would do next and was teased considerably with 2015’s two song demo A Dialogue of Broken Stars, a release that

TERRA TENEBROSA’s new The Reverses is a modern day classic that soars above any genre and can not be put in a box. Which is why I just be blasting at least once a day for the next year…I’m not surprised that Debemur Morti Productions is the label home of this
On June 16th – 18th of 2016, The COVENANT Festival takes place in Vancouver B.C. for it’s second year straight. I thought that the first year was off of the chain, but this year’s line up makes this one of the strongest fests to take place on the West Coast.
