Wrapped In Mist

Forged in the moonlit forests of Sweden, HELGA are a big, invigorating blast of fresh air. Although the music on "Wrapped in Mist" displays a kinship with everything from WARDRUNA and NYTT LAND to ELUVEITE and MYRKUR, there is something quietly unique about this record. A great number of disparate s...

All Of This For Nothing

For those who haven't yet had the pleasure, THE CRAWLING are the best bad time you will ever have.

They were always a neat and perfect package, those pesky DEATHSTARS. Strutting and glowering in a sweet spot between THE 69 EYES and RAMMSTEIN, the Swedes have always looked amazing and played with undeniable swagger.

Death, Where Is Your Sting?

After four acclaimed albums and nearly a decade of active service, the idea that AVATARIUM were ever just another side project for the endlessly prolific Leif Edling now seems ridiculous.

How To Shroud Yourself With Night

Stalwarts of the morbid underground since the early '90s, LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE have undergone a slow but scintillating evolution over the last 30 years.
