Assim na Terra como no Inferno

There is a fine line between so-called "raw" black metal and, with the greatest of respect, unlistenable horseshit. A direct descendant of DARKTHRONE's ruthlessly lo-fi "Under A Funeral Moon", this subgenre often has a strong whiff of The Emperor's New Clothes about it, and yet all the cynicism in t...

DARKTHRONE's NOCTURNO CULTO Talks Staying Behind The Times: 'We Think Everything Is Kind Of Stupid'

By David E. Gehlke Norwegian black metal pioneers DARKTHRONE have balked at the idea of progression since the late 1990s. Whereas their (un)holy triumvirate of "A Blaze In The Northern Sky", "Under A Funeral Moon" and "Transilvanian Hunger" became foundational black metal albums upon their release e...

Eternal Hails……

Methods Of Human Disposal

If anyone is searching for a reason to be cheerful, "Methods Of Human Disposal" is probably not the album you need to be listening to right now. For the rest of us, resigned as we are to the fucked-up nature of things, this foul and violent tailspin through the blood-spattered streets of the rotting...

By Chance

While most of us enjoy a good chuckle at the expense of scowling black metal purists from time to time, the idea that the genre could ever be restricted by some overarching set of rules has been preposterous for well over two decades now. As a result, something as plainly perverse as MORA PROKAZA's...

The Birth Of Hateful Existence

A new project from Neptun, former drummer with Slovakian death metal legends NOMENMORTIS, DOMINION OF SUFFERING's debut is one of those low-key, unassuming releases that could easily get lost in these wildly fruitful times. Fortunately, it jumped out at me like a heavily armed stalker. Like pretty m...

Sex With Dead Body

No. Redeeming. Features. Don't say I didn't warn you. SHITFUCKER make it easy for us, really. Firstly, they're called SHITFUCKER. That should eliminate the faint-hearted and anyone that doesn't instinctively want to hear music made by the kind of people that would call their band SHITFUCKER. So that...

Mandala Of Fear

Some moments of inspiration are simply meant to be. When HUNTSMEN unveiled their cross-genre sound on 2018's "American Scrap", it was hard to believe that no one had previously blended thunderous post-metal with the windswept atmospheres and wistful harmonies of sun-scorched Americana: for those wit...
