Italy’s Hierophant waste no time when it comes to following up their albums with further madness. 2013 saw the release of their second album, Great Mother: Holy Monster, with 2010 debuting their self-titled onslaught. With barely a year and a half gone by, Hierophant end 2014 with their third LP,

One of my favorite bands is up for review this time around. It shouldn’t be too much of a surprise for some of you that Nihill don’t fit into any sub-genre or niche in metal. They use so many elements: noise, post-punk, black metal, doom, industrial. Their music is extreme,

The album cover for Among the Ranks of the Unconquerable is a visual description as to what you are in for with this Death Fortress album, the very skeletal surroundings signifying that death metal is about to be afoot. This is most straight up metal album I’ve heard from Fallen

Label: CALIGARI RECORDS Robert Fludd, a well-known English physician, who was also an investigator of the occult, had issues defining the term “the Hyle”. The word of Greek origin refers to matter, and it is where this doom band takes its name from. The act from Denmark has a definite attraction

Here we have it. Finally, the long awaited, highly anticipated fourth full-length from NJHC veterans The Banner. After six years, a brief break-up, line up changes and a satiating cassette, Greying is here, and it’s all that it was cracked up to be. The Banner has been a constant touchstone

Swirling, chaotic, virulent, black and maddening. These are but a few of the many adjectives that could be used to describe the incredibly harsh, unique music that Jute Gyte produces. But even with one hundred of the most descriptive words in the English language, I still would not be able

In this episode of Screams from the Gutter, we bring you some bitterness, some filth, some morbid introspection, some loss and a ton of gloom.  If these bands ended up in this series, it means three things mainly: 1) I’m clusterfucked with work and can’t for the life of me find

In the last Screams from the Gutter chapter dedicated to Italian bands I told you how one of those bands called HATE & MERDA had an imminent release coming out. So, that release finally came out, and holy fucking shit, it fucking rips shit up in unimaginable ways. In fact, it rips shit apart

Suffocating in the Swarm of Cranes was easily in my top five albums of 2012, and needless to say I was firmly waiting for a new masterpiece from the Germans. Even if “Darkness Inflames These Sapphire Eyes” starts a lot like “Winter Cvlt” from Phantom Winter (another German band, ex-Omega

How can some blogs and commercial rags be putting up end-of-year lists without having heard Witchrist? Ok, so, many and many a year ago, Witchrist burst out of the cvlt scene with the seminal Beheaded Ouroborus. It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard from them, the last release being

These are busy people. This year alone, No One, Sam and Brian opened for black metal legends Watain at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, collaborated with Mayhem’s Manheim and Hellhammer, put out a full-length album (Fury Nocturnus) and a compilation (Pennhurst/Xesse) under the Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemy (T.O.M.B.) moniker, plus another

The comings and goings of the somewhat mysterious Black Twilight Circle may be shrouded in shadow, yet the collective creative output of Crepusculo Negro records shines as brightly as the California sun in which its originators bask. Ideologies and intentions aside, the circle have put out some storming releases since
