Exploration: Sacrilege – Lost in the Beauty You Slay (1996)

I've been in a melodic riff mode for the past week or so and nothing scratches that itch quite like Swedish melodic death metal. If you read this blog you know about my fondness for the genre. In fact, I've... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Orth – Nocturno Inferno (2017)

A lost, 90's, Norwegian black metal album? Count me right the fuck in. Surprisingly this flew right over my radar last year (2017) as I didn't even hear a fucking peep of information or publicity for this, which is also... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Equinox – Return to Mystery (1996)

A black/death metal band, from the States, in the 90s? That doesn't sound like everything from Florida at the time? How has this band gone so criminally underrated for so long? Maybe it was because of said Florida sounding death... Continue Reading →

Solitude Aeturnus – Downfall (1996)

I've always thought of Solutide Aeturnus as the heavier, American version of Candlemass, and maybe that's because I heard vocalist Robert Lowe's amazing vocals first on Candlemasse's Death Magic Doom album (one of my favorites of the band) before I'd even heard of... Continue Reading →

Mule Skinner – Abuse (1996)

Holy fuck, it's been a while since I've featured any power metal on here and I can't let that stand. In order to rectify that oversight, here's Scanner. I'm fairly certain I stumbled on to Scanner through one of those... Continue Reading →

Scum – Garden of Shadows (1996)

Finnish 90's death metal. Such a sentence should send a shiver of excitement up your spine. The Finnish do know how to craft some death metal and are no slouches when it comes to classic bands and albums from that... Continue Reading →

Lux Occulta – Forever Alone, Immortal (1996)

I reviewed Lux Occulta's second album Dionys0s about a year ago when my buddy shared their first two albums with me. It has now taken me this long to listen to the first. Fucking slacker. Anywho, I loved the darkish, slightly progressive,... Continue Reading →

Moribund – Oracular Eyes (1996)

It's 2017 and I'm officially back from my holiday vacation ready to dive back into the unlit corners of the metal world. First off, thanks to everybody who checked out my Best of 2016 list. The site has had some... Continue Reading →
