Gris – Il Etait une Foret (2007)

Gris' 2013 album À l'âme enflammée, l'äme constellée... fucking blew my little brain when it came out, once I got into it. It's a double album and fairly dense but once I cracked that nut, man oh man, was I sold. Stunningly... Continue Reading →

ColdWorld – Melancholie² (2008)

There was a fair bit of commotion, "buzz" if you will, last year about the new ColdWorld album. Not being familiar with the band, hearing all the good things about it, and knowing people were referring to it as a... Continue Reading →

Wolfhetan – Entrückung (2006)

My buddy Ben shared this album with me today and since I was crunched for time and not feeling the stack of music I had, I put this one on, blindly, and was fucking crushed by it. What met my... Continue Reading →

I have a soft spot for Rotting Christ. They were one of the first extreme metal bands I stumbled on when I was really starting to get in to this kind of music. I didn’t even start with the first... Continue Reading →

Carach Angren – Lammendam (2008)

I recently saw Carach Angren live with Rotting Christ (more on them another day) and while I’m a casual fan of Carach and their silliness, they’re live show was pretty fucking engaging and I have to give them kudos. It... Continue Reading →

Tartaros – The Grand Psychotic Castle (1997) & The Red Jewel (1999)

And here we have Tartaros, a short lived Norwegian symphonic black metal band consisting of one member, Charmand Grimloch (if that name doesn’t give you a hint of where this is going…) who played live keyboards for Emperor. My buddy Ben... Continue Reading →

Azelisassath – In Contempt of All Life (2014)

I recently turned 35 and I’ve been finding with my aging that my ability to put up with people is rapidly diminishing, which is why when I see an album called In Contempt of All Life I nod my head... Continue Reading →
