BRUDINI

From Darkness, Light

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Apollon Records, 2020)

The London-based act Brudini is something else entirely and there is no other way for me to describe this unique piece of work than a warm and vibrant mixture of eclectic and hugely original music that defies genre conventions and easy categorization. What makes ”From Darkness, Light” so special? The first ...

SUFFERING SOULS

True Godfucking Soulblight

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Schwarzdorn Production, 2020)

The German one-man black metal outfit named Suffering Souls unleashed this eleven-track compilation via Schwarzdorn Production a few days ago and the cursed thing consists of mastermind Lord Esgaroth's demo offerings from 1998-2000 as well as a previously unreleased tune from 1996 and an exclusive (and utterly dreadful) live track. Musically ...

CONCRETE

Free Us From Existence

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Black Voodoo Records/Blood Blast Distribution, 2020)

Ever since the murderer of Darrell Lance "Dimebag" Abbott buried any chances of Pantera reforming, bands have been lining up to replace the Texan legend. Hatebreed was the most likely candidate and, at one point, the Virginian groove metalcorers Lamb Of God were in position to take the spot but then ...

BOLZÖ

Moonlight

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Independent, 2020)

Genre eclectic acts such as Emperor, Dissection and Behemoth created a space where black and death metal could coexist in perfect equilibrium, a place the now sadly defunct Enforsaken briefly tapped into before extinquished by corporate greed. The Trondheim, Trondelag, Norwegian outfit Bolzö seems to have tapped the same vein on ...

YOBREPUS

Mycelium Days

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Apollon Records, 2020)

Now this is something else entirely and I might as well start out by telling you that this Norwegian outfit's sophomore effort entitled “Mycelium Days” is a progressive-sounding gem with a wonderfully cinematic vibe to it and yet its compositions are so introspective that they will inevitably get under your skin ...

ANTZAAT

For You Men Who Gaze into the Sun

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Immortal Frost Productions, 2020)

I was quite fond of the Belgian horde's “The Black Hand of the Father” EP that was released a few years ago (2017) and I am pleased to announce that this upcoming full-length disc of theirs is a most worthy follow-up and just the kind of record you underground black metal ...

BEYOND HELVETE

MMXX

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Immortal Frost Productions, 2020)

The foul German act named Beyond Helvete is back with a new full-length curse after an eight-year wait and offers aggressive, hate-filled black metal with a wicked groove to it. Sharp and intense but sufficiently melodic too, ”MMXX” is quite varied and the vocal work is strong and inspired. A prominent ...

THURISAZ

Re-Incentive

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Independent, 2020)

Scandinavians (Swallow The Sun, Katatonia) and The Britts (Anathema, My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, The Drowning), be they as they may be the kings of melodic deathened doom, there are bands of equal talent coming from unlikely places such as the Netherlands (Officium Triste) or this here, Thurisaz, from Wervik, West ...

RING VAN MÖBIUS

The 3rd Majesty

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Apollon Records Prog, 2020)

Listening to a record by Ring Van Möbius is a truly joyous journey into playful 70s-inspired prog rock with a psych-like undercurrent to it, and the band’s warm, vibrant, and organic sounds are a delight to lose oneself in. Arguably more abstract and eclectic than its predecessor, “The 3rd Majesty” recalls ...

TROLL

Tilbake til Trollberg

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Polypus Records, 2020)

I have always harbored a certain affinity for the Norwegian (symphonic) black metal entity known as Troll and the majority of their releases offer something interesting and atmospheric. This 4-track EP is no exception to that rule, but musically and stylistically speaking this one is more akin to the underground gem ...
