Agalloch “The Mantle” (2002)

28. April 2018 David 0

Dissonance, over the top and complex time changes, arpeggioing galore and dull atmosphere is everything this album is NOT about. In the face of continuous depletion of ideas, many bands try to serve their listeners […]

Aenaon “Extance” (2014)

This mini-album received quite a lot of praise since its release and in fact AENAON from Greece demonstrate a more than solid potential with their skill- and powerful interpretation of modern Norwegian extreme metal. Norwegian? […]

Achenar “Super Death Explosion Kitties” (2011)

Abstruse “Ivory Tower” (2010)

28. April 2018 aVoid 0

Vertiginous steps into a swiftly ascending labyrinth, turbulent staircases into the stargazer’s solemn tower fields. Unheard shapes floating synaesthetically among the corners of your eyes, deep blue and black. Clocks unwinding, tolling thirteen knell. Gothic […]
