Miserere Luminis

Excellent collaboration between Gris and Sombres Forêts; those familiar with these names, hopefully everyone, know what to expect. Quality from beginning to end, this is a unique and engrossing release that perfectly merges the two bands into something new. Highly recommended!!

Amazarak - Comando Blasfêmia

More excellent black / thrash from these Brazilians, this is their second demo and it’s just as good as the debut, absolutely killer stuff! Also features a great Bathory cover.

Marblebog - Csendhajnal - Silencedawn

Debut album from one of this excellent Hungarian band. This release features some of the finest atmospheric black metal around, simple, slow and repetitive; also worth mentioning are the two ambient tracks that are in my opinion the best part of the release, pure trance inducing bliss! These tracks and generally the ambient material released by Marblebog (Wind of Moors for example) are simply on a level of its own! Mandatory!!!
I just described the first six tracks of the release that are on the original Csendhajnal album, the rest of the release features older material that is rawer but also well worth listening.

Blacklodge - T/Me [3Rd Level Initiation = Chamber Of Downfall]

More industrialized black metal from Blacklodge, a logical continuation of their previous albums, only a bit too short for my taste but still a must for all fans of the band!
This album has been released together with the new Abigor as a double LP, since both releases deal with similar lyrical themes.

Abigor - Time Is the Sulphur in the Veins of the Saint...

New Abigor album! Avant-garde industrial black metal, very interesting and much better than the disappointing Fractal Possession; the music actually sounds like an industrialized version of newer Deathspell Omega. With only two songs, both clocking at almost 20 minutes, this is a challenging listen but ultimately worth the effort, just don’t expect the same band that released those early albums.
After this I might even give Fractal Possession a spin, maybe I’ll like it better this time around.

Disguster - Esoterrorism

New demo from the madman behind Disguster. It's not as "psychedelic" as Flesh and Fear, actually being a pretty straightforward raw black metal record. The third song, Cold and Savage, would not sound at all out of place on Malveillance's later albums. Good shit .

Cirrhus

Raw black metal from the US apparently connected with Furdidurke, they only released several rehearsals. The music is somewhat melancholic black metal, almost sounds like early Celestia but rawer, there’s potential here that will hopefully get out once they release a proper demo or album.

A real hidden gem here from this forgotten Dutch band featuring Countess members. This is really weird (in a good way) doomy black metal; the fucking insane vocals and strange keyboards create a truly queer atmosphere that you don’t hear often, highly recommended!!!

Njiqahdda - Alkas Nortii Maane Solbaartu - Aski

One of the 2009 Njiqahdda albums, this one features two black metal songs and one huge droning ambient song with lots of field recordings. Basically nothing you haven’t heard from these guys, the black metal songs really crawl under your skin after repeated listens but the ambient centerpiece will probably put off a lot of people. Definitely not their best, but worth a listen!

Inferno Requiem - Gloomy Night Stories

Sinister, hateful wailing from the deepest level of Chinese hell, Inferno Requiem's first album - Gloomy Night Stories is definitely the most furious black metal album ever released from Taiwan! Opposite to the bombastic symphonic melodic style of its country mate Chthonic, Inferno Requiem blends the raw Norwegian old school black metal with the theme of gruesome Chinese ghost stories, images of traditional Chinese hells of torture, and atrocious spiritual encounters from Fog Blashyrkh himself. 10 songs of grim, frostbitten black metal with torturous vocal under the shadow of great eastern ancient evilness, this is the first sign of Chinese Mythological Black Metal!

Tenebrae in Perpetuum - L'Eterno Maligno Silenzio

Oh fuck yeah, one of last year’s strongest releases, similar to the previous efforts only this time the music is graced with some awesome clean vocals. Onori Funebri Rituali is still my favorite of theirs, but this one comes in close second. This is Italy’s finest, essential!!!!

Snötårar - Vredeslusta

Debut album from this Swedish one-man band, released in ’07. Black metal with a distinct Swedish sound that sometimes reminds me of older Setherial, the drum-machine is probably the biggest flaw here, although it does not take much from the overall impression. A decent release with a couple of memorable songs, worth a listen.

Third demo from the now defunct Infernal Oak. A short release with only three bm songs, the music is usually straightforward with some occasional clean vocals; the third song has some really beautiful passages.

Through the Pain - Time Heals Nothing

Words of Through the Pain:
'' The mind of Baelvect crawls behind the desolate chords and screams of
this therapeutic and existentialistic project. Risen from the scars, seeping
through the mind and finally bleeding the path towards clarity. In 2007
together with the band Trist a split EP was released. The continuation of
the foundations found through this artistic expression is now finally to be
heard and manifested through - 'Time Heals Nothing'. It's a wound that will
never heal, it's an invigorating pain that will never end. ''


For Depressive Black Metal fans.

One Master - The Quiet Eye of Eternity

Excellent release from this US band, this is their second album, released last year. Pure straightforward black metal; the music is nothing revolutionary but highly enjoyable. This album actually reminds me a lot of Leviathan, probably because of the vocals that are quite similar to Wrest’s. Anyway, good stuff, check it out!

Intra Tenebrae - Thorns & Barbed Wire: Finding The Beauty In Suicide

Killer full-length from this British project. Raw, post-Burzumic atmosphere, with what sounds like a coked up Xenomorph (you know, the fucking alien from Alien) doing vocals (and I mean that in the most awesome way possible). The last two tracks stay raw, but keep the speed up. Like the two long tracks on Krieg's Patrick Bateman EP. This album was a gem last year and no one fucking knew about it. Check it out now and enjoy.

Common Grave - Il Male di Vivere

Debut album from this Italian band, released in ’08. The album is enjoyable, the music fluctuates between more straightforward riffs to slower melodic sections; the strong parts here are definitely the more atmospheric sections, which are tastefully composed, when the music speeds up it usually just gets bland. Overall this is a worthy release, definitely a lot of potential here!
