Enochian Crescent – NEF.VI.LIM (2010) Review

Enochian Crescent is Finnish black metal. They don’t care what everyone else is doing, they don’t care what the popular sound is, they just play their own breed of black metal. It’s a bit slower and more progressive than a lot of the material out there, but it’s good...

Mistur – Attende (2009) Review

What’s folk and black and viking all over? Damn, that was a stupid joke, but I’m not going to erase it. I’ll display my misstep for all. Anyway, that is what we have here: Over 55 minutes of viking black metal with some folk elements. I’ve been listening to this...

Keep of Kalessin – Reptilian (2010) Review

What a relief! The latest Keep of Kalessin album is good. I was scared out of my mind when I listened to “The Dragontower,” which was released as a single before the album came out. I can imagine true fans freaking out when they heard this playing on European...

Cor Scorpii – Monument + Attargangar

Although this album is a bit old, 2008, it’s still worth reviewing due to its obscurity. Cor Scorpii reminds me of Windir, and it should, because the Synth player and the Guitarist are from Windir. However, it’s a bit faster than Windir, almost reminds me of Dark Funeral during...

Periphery – Periphery (2010) Review

Got djent? on a more serious note, periphery is a progressive metal band from the USA. I honestly can’t classify them, they combine death metal, technical death metal, avant garde, prog rock, techno, hardcore, and some pop even, into their sound. This album starts slowly, in a quite generic...

Gwydion - Horn Triskelion (Front Cover) by Eneas

Gwydion – Horn Triskelion (2010) Review

I have really been enjoying this latest album from Gwydion. Hailing from Portugal, this epic viking metal outfit has toured with some of the big names in Viking metal. Lately they were on tour with Týr and Alestorm. The entire album is good and there are parts that are...

Illdisposed – For Those Who Walk Behind Us (2009) Review

I’ve been listening to Illdisposed now for about a 3 years now, and when this album came out, it was exactly what I expected. This album could easily compete with their previous albums. It is pretty much your normal Illdisposed album with its heavy riffs and its brief periods...

Wuthering Heights – Salt (2010) Review

Now here is some epic music. Wuthering Heights hails from Copenhagen, Denmark. Their latest album, Salt, picks up perfectly where The Shadow Cabinet (2006) left off and that is a very good thing. The Shadow Cabinet was very well received, in fact, it’s hard to find a review with anything...

Solution .45 – For Aeons Past (2010) Review

Christian Älvestam has to be the busiest man in the Swedish, melodic death metal scene. Most notably, he is the former front-man of Scar Symmetry. Other than that you can hear him on any of these projects: Incapacity, Solar Dawn, Torchbearer, Quest of Aidance, Miseration, Angel Blake, Carnalized, Unmoored, The Few...
