RATTENFÄNGER

Geisslerlieder

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Dark Essence Records, 2019)

It has been quite a while since the Ukrainian death metal mongers Rattenfänger unleashed their utterly dark and brutal debut offering (i.e. “Epistolae Obscurorum Virorum” from 2012), but to my great surprise this sophomore effort of theirs showed up in my mailbox recently. Boasting a line-up consisting of skilled and seasoned ...

TUSMØRKE

Leker for Barn, Ritualer for Voksne

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Karisma Records, 2019)

Norwegian prog rockers Tusmørke are a bunch of fantastic musicians who keep throwing us musical curve balls, and we should all be fucking grateful for that. True to the band members' unquenchable thirst to widen their musical horizons, their latest endeavor is nothing less than a record comprised of music from ...

WAYNE HUSSEY

Salad Daze

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Omnibus Press, 2019)

The renowned and highly skilled guitarist Wayne Hussey (The Mission, ex-Dead or Alive, ex-The Sisters of Mercy) published this hugely charming and entertaining autobiography of his via the ever-reliable Omnibus Press earlier on this year, and I might as well start out by saying that this is one piece of literature ...

ASHEN CROWN

Obsolescence

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Independent, 2019)

The momentum, the careful buildup of aggression and hooks, is one of the most essential elements of a great metal album, as is the ability to keep it intact throughout. This British death/groove metal quintet showcases the importance of the momentum by being remarkably inconsistent at it on their debut LP. ...

BÖLZER

Lese Majesty

Anmeldt av John Morrow
(Lightning & Sons, 2019)

When it comes to hype, Bölzer took first prize with their 2013 debut EP, "Aura", a collection of music that deserved all the hoopla. Their distinct mixture of black and death metal, infused with sludge and their own brand of atmosphere, was a breath of fresh ...

THE END A.D.

Badlands

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Fastball Music, 2019)

The raw and delightfully unpolished outfit appropriately named The End A.D., which hails from the lovely city that is Philadelphia, is an interesting musical encounter. For one thing, they shamelessly mix thick and filthy punk rock, huge thrash-influenced riffs, and the loud and nasty vibe of hardcore to great effect. It ...

KALDVARD

Dømt til Bål og Brann

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Self released, 2019)

Last year yours truly had the pleasure of reviewing Kaldvard's very first output, namely the 8-track offering that was “Fossegrimens Pant”. Although I was not blown away or swept off my feet by that particular release, their intriguing mixture of pagan metal and black metal had potential aplenty to it and ...

VINSTA

Drei Deita

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Trollmusic, 2019)

A little while ago I reviewed the new Haunter album, an impressive take on the old Opeth, having remarked on how many bands attempt to tap into that, admittedly, rich vein. This Austrian yodeling melodic death/folk duo has a similar approach, but draws the line between ancient Opeth and where Opeth ...

CREATURE

Hound

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Grey Ghost Records, 2019)

Fuck yes, this is just what I needed; a new EP by one of my favorite British thrash-infused hardcore/grind metal bands! I am of course referring to the Birmingham-based Creature and the utterly fierce (and appropriately titled) ”Hound” EP that was unleashed just a few weeks ago.  The previous output by ...

MARA

Rök

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Immortal Frost Productions, 2019)

Mara hail from the frostbitten shores of Sweden and dabble in aggressive pagan black metal with a strong presence of rawness to it that harkens back to the early-to-mid 90s. In addition, there a numerous passages that are slightly more earthy and pagan-like to be found on the disc too. Musically, ...
