Exploration: Vomitory – Blood Rapture (2002)

Recently Vomitory was announced as playing next year's Maryland Deathfest and it started a swirl of hype that I didn't know Vomitory commanded. Supposedly over as a band, Vomitory coming back to play in an almost headlining spot (sandwiched between... Continue Reading →

Unlord – Lord of Beneath (2002)

The Netherlands is a country I visit often on this blog. I’m hard pressed at the moment to come up with any other black metal bands from the country, other than say Countess or Carach Angren. Well now I can... Continue Reading →

Agatus – The Weaving Fates (2002)

Let’s get back to some black metal on this here blog. To do so let’s also take a trip to Greece, home of Agatus, a band made up of members of Zemial and Kawir (amongst others). Agatus aren’t satisfied with... Continue Reading →

Thy Primordial

Today we’re going to try something slightly different. Instead of just one album, I’m going to focus on a particular band. My buddy shared with me Thy Primordial and their catalog a couple weeks ago. I finally got to listening... Continue Reading →

Floor – Floor (2002)

It seems Floor started gathering attention after one of their members started Torche, the critical darlings of stoner/sludge/doom metal. I’m not much of a fan of Torche but I thought I might give this album a try. I can’t really... Continue Reading →

Reverend Bizarre – In the Rectory of Reverend Bizarre (2002)

I have to admit, going into this I was expecting something, well, bizarre. Granted, the vocals are a bit different for the doom genre, but they aren’t bizarre. I can’t fault them on not being bizarre because that’s my own... Continue Reading →
