Few bands are more respected in underground black metal circles than Slidhr, after releasing their debut full-length, Deluge, in 2013 to widespread acclaim. Still, that fanbase is quite small in comparison than with most black metal bands embraced by mainstream black metal audiences. With their latest EP, Spit of the

Ah, Switzerland…home of great Swiss cheese and Swiss chocolate. It is also where the band Dakhma hail from. This could be Iron Bonehead’s best release this year. Don’t believe me? Just ask my friend Fenris. Funny that Dakhma would call Switzerland home. The pride of Switzerland…get this: Swiss Alps, Swiss

Triumvir Foul release their debut self-titled full-length album, and it’s a slight change in direction from the Swedeath-sounding An Oath of Blood and Fire demo. Their second release channels a bit of ancient death metal to their style, and on this record Triumvir Foul play it fitting tribute with filthy, gritty, no-holds

It’s been three years since we heard the ancient maw of KILLING JOKE open up to unload another guttural roar, but at long last, here it is. Killing Joke’s Pylon is all over the map, pulling from almost every genre the band has explored over their past 15 albums and 37

The constant presence of Sunn O))) makes it very difficult to comprehend that it has actually been six years since the band released their previous full-length, Monoliths & Dimensions. The main reason for this, of course, is their continuous collaborations with great acts such as Ulver, Nurse With Wound and

Wrekmeister Harmonies is an avant-doom/drone project grounded and headed by the venerable mastermind composer J.R. Robinson, who creates abysmal soundscapes of pain and disillusionment, and then contracts a bevy of masterful contributors to help him make said visions a reality. In the past, his grandiose works have seen collaborations with the likes

Brume were brought into existence when guitarist Jamie McCathie left the UK to join Sussie McMullan (bass/vocals), with the goal being the creation of heavy doom music. That event took place in the beginning of 2014, and it really seems like this band is working fast. Since then, they were

Recitation’s debut LP, Carrion, is quite possibly the heaviest album of 2015. Since releasing a self-titled EP last year, the Danish trio has taken a more nihilistic turn, progressing from psychedelic doom into hopeless sludge. Consisting of one 27-minute song, Carrion is damn close to perfect. The track begins with

Pulverised Records offers another Swedeath throwback effort, this time Under the Church’s suitably titled, Rabid Armageddon. Rabid, it does seem. The album is a rocking romper stomper, full of punk-influenced riffs that gallop at thrash pace. Rabid Armageddon is yet another quality outing by Under The Church. Spawned out of
