Reverorum Ib Malacht “Ter Agios Numini” album review and soundcloud excerpt

I must give credit for discovering REVERORUM IB MALACHT to longtime comrade John Gossard (Dispirit, ex-Asunder, ex-Weakling)! Strangely enough, following his words of praise back in the early 10’s I haven’t instantly listened to any of their records. This is Read more

INFESTER “To the Depths, in Degradation” death metal re-release review and youtube stream

Re-releases of “best kept secret” type of old bands, usually package attractively mediocre quality content using 80’s/90’s nostalgia and vinyl fetishism. Even when the music is good, most such bands were mere clones back at the day, therefore their (re-) Read more

Rippikoulu are back after 21 years with new album titled “Ulvaja”

Posted on by Vassago in Death Metal, Doom Metal, Music | Leave a comment

Rippikoulu Ulvaja CoverWell well if this isn’t the biggest surprise to date. The long anticipated third release from finish Death/Doom metal band Rippikoulu is set to be released in two weeks time!

Those not aware with the band probably didn’t realise that I am sarcastic since “Ulvaja” is indeed the band’s third release in….well 21 years, and to be fair noone saw it coming (how could you afterall).

Rippikoulu became known through a demo tape released back in 1993 “Musta Seremonia” resulting in the creation of some sort of cult/fanatic death/doom metal fan base, then noone ever heard a thing for roughly 20 years.

Kuolemanlaakso : ‘Tulijoutsen’ Album Review

Posted on by Vassago in black metal, Death Metal, Doom Metal, Music | Leave a comment

The highly acclaimed Finnish death doomsters return with their brand new album (second full length release following their debut “Uljas uusi maailma” in 2012)  titled “Tulijoutsen“. Produced once again by the TriptykonTulijoutsen-album-cover and Dark Fortress guitarist V. Santura, Kuolemanlaakso’s new album “Tulijoutsen” aim is to push the band into a new territory by combining different music genres such as death, doom and gothic/atmospheric metal with a melancholic touch which is present throughout (almost) the whole album. Their debut album, ‘Uljas Uusi Maailma’ was a good introduction to the scene but with ‘Tulijoutsen’ the aim is clearly to push themselves to a different level and reach audiences – which I will dare to say – who like bands such as from the Symphonic death metalers Tristania to the Gothic metal legends Moonspell.

The horror: PORTAL -CURTAIN-

Posted on by panos.agoros in Art, Death Metal, Music | Leave a comment

Hailing from Australia, PORTAL are on the edge of the contemporary extreme music scene. Their unorthodox, chaotic death metal will swallow and deconstruct you. From the lyrics written in their own cryptic language, to the terrifying, paradoxal artwork, the music is endorsed and supported by some of the darkest and most inspiring aesthetics.

The video-clip for “Curtain”, out of their 2013’s offering for Profound Lore Records “Vexovoid”, presents the realm of their art under a concrete, horrific angle.

DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT (UK) “Hatred For Mankind” CD Review

Posted on by Vassago in Death Metal, Music | Leave a comment

This album entered instantly extreme metal’s collective subconscious thanks to the sinister artwork by Justin Barlett (get all the background about the making of the artwork here)!dragged-into-sunlight-hatred-for-mankind

Hailing from the U.K., D.I.S. are a mysterious band, its bands concealing their identities and appearing in band photos wearing full face masks. Thankfully they can backup this anonymous approach, as well as the aforementioned artwork with some remarkably ominous metal.
