Exploration: Cirith Gorgor’s Onwards to the Spectral Defile (1999) and Unveiling the Essence (2001)

I've been so entrenched in death metal and new releases as of late that I forgot just have fucking satisfying blistering black can be. Enter Cirith Gorgor. Yes, another Lord of the Rings named band, this time named for the... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Crimson Midwinter – Random Chaos (1998)

It's been fucking blazingly, stupidly hot around here so some chilling Finnish metal is just what I needed to remind me of colder weather that isn't trying to melt my brain. Instead I opted to let Crimson Midwinter melt my... Continue Reading →

Album Review: Hoth – Astral Necromany (2018)

You’d be mistaken if you didn’t think that the metal genre isn’t dragon’s treasure horde of fucking nerd-ery, especially in lyrical themes and in some cases, entire genres. I know we’ll puff out our chests and stomp our feet in... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Rusting Sun – Far from All Light (2013)

Kudos again to my buddy and metal guru Brain Smasher for knowing exactly what's going to blow my brains all over. Despite both of our interest in the band Odal, I didn't know that their main two members were also... Continue Reading →

Golden Dawn suddenly came into my life in a weird, coincidental way. My buddy Brain Smasher shared with me a whole heap of music and when I was perusing through to get a taste of what he'd so kindly delivered the... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Sorcier des Glaces – The Puressence of Primitive Forests (2011)

Sorcier des Glaces is a name I always see floating around on heralded words. Sorcier des Glaces, or SDG for you cool kids (and how their logo looks now) always have albums for sale in pretty much every single metal distro... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Frostmoon – Tordenkrig (1999)

Frostmoon existed for all of an EP release and a split release, all from between 1998 and 1999, culminating with a 1999 compilation of all their releases and a few unreleased tracks that were promised to be on the then... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Cemetery Piss – Order of the Vulture (2016)

Metal Archives lists Cemetery Piss' lyrical themes as "desecration" and "blasphemy." That about sums up this band perfectly. If you couldn't guess from the name, Cemetery Piss revels in expletive and vulgarity excess. Think Midnight if only they were filthier.... Continue Reading →
