Universe217 “Universe217” (2008)

20. July 2020 aVoid 0

Sometimes, if not quite often, the heaviest obstacle for a decent and respectable listening to, and subsequent reviewing of, an album is not the music and visuals itself, but rather the blurb on the promotional […]

Umbra Nihil “The Borderland Rituals” (2008)

20. July 2020 aVoid 0

Supernatural psych-doom! Finland do many things extremely well. Ultra-filthy and harsh black metal and noise, ultra-cheesy and hideously melodic power metal, knife-fights and alcoholic binges, suicide, strange language… but most of all, DOOM. From THERGOTHON […]

Ulver “Vargnatt” (1993)

20. July 2020 aVoid 0

First, you must forgive me. I do not own any official copy of this first Ulver release; not the original self-released cassette, nor the hastily sold-out 10″ released by The End in 2002. My version […]

15. July 2020 aVoid 0

If bands were only the sum of their influences and references (not necessarily intentional), then Smohalla would be among the greatest bands on Earth. I can easily trace elements from BM/AGM luminaries as Arcturus (melodies), […]

Pryapisme “Hyperblast Super Collider” (2013)

1. July 2020 aVoid 0

If you felt that last year’s lauded STAGNANT WATERS debut was a bit too slow, predictable, uneventful and monochrome, this might be your lucky day. PRYAPISME, which is the main project of percussionist/clarinetist/electronician Aymeric Thomas […]

Pryapisme “Rococo Holocaust” (2010)

1. July 2020 aVoid 0

It is hardly standard procedure to receive a promotional copy approximately three years after the initial contact with the band came to an end. But then again, PRYAPISME is hardly a standard procedure orchestra. This […]
