ALWANZATAR

Den Glemte Dalen

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Apollon Records, 2021)

Here is a sloppily written review of a rather interesting and intriguing synth-driven record masterminded by the skilled musician known as Krizla (Tusmørke), and what we are dealing with here is essentially a collection of otherworldly and surreal-sounding tunes that will serve ...

UNBOUNDED TERROR

Infernal Judgement

VECTOR SEVEN

Electric Blood

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Darkhan Music, 2021)

Vector Seven's darksynth/synthwave opus entitled "Electric Blood" is a fabulous homage to cinematic horror films and soundtracks from the late 70s, 80s, and early 90s, and these eleven hooky songs rarely fail to deliver bold results. While parts of "Electric Blood" are ...

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Dark Essence Records, 2021)

I am extremely fond of the previous offering by the psychedelic stoner rock/doom metal act from Oslo known as Superlynx, more specifically the one titled "New Moon", and so this upcoming record of theirs bearing the evocative moniker "Electric Temple" is obviously something ...

As the brewing storm closes in gentle, very MY DYING BRIDE violins usher in a heavy doomy riff SWALLOW THE SUN and KATATONIA both would be proud to own, the characteristic melody and Davide Straccione's clean vocal similar to Aaron Stainthorpe's of My Dying ...

DORMANTH

Complete Downfall

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Xtreem Music, 2020)

Remember that feeling when you were listening to a "new" band which, with their very own melodies and riffs brought the memories of old greatness? In the vast sea that is melodic death metal there aren't that many bands who can smell, feel and look like the ...
