Moonreich – Loi Martiale

France’s Moonreich make their full-length debut with Loi Martiale (French for “Martial Law”), a progressive metal CD that some will find much too melodic for its own good. However, those who give the CD a chance will find themselves rewarded, as the band strays off the path of symphonic black metal to create its own [&hellip

Crucifier – Trampled Under Cloven Hooves

Pennsylvania’s Crucifier are one of the greatest bands in the underground! They’ve been around for 20 years and since then vocalist/drummer/founder, The Black Lourde of Crucifixion has been involved in many killer bands such Grand Belial’s Key, Decieverion, Infernal Hatred, Hearse and many more.

Woe – Quietly, Undramatically

Gaining high acclaim since being released, this second album from Woe captures many essences long forgotten in the art of metal. Emotions swell to overflowing, production is tight but riffs still feel minimalist and mesmeric and each track feels like a dagger in the heart of the disenfranchised.

Ptahil – Anti-Flesh Existence/Ortus

In any of the countless subgenres intertwined through the infamous anatomy of extreme music today, it seems all-too-easy to find one’s self inundated with a horrendous amount of disposable, insincere acts that apparently have no qualms about their complete lack of originality or honesty in their art.

Profanatica – The Enemy of Virtue

There’s a lot of crap out there these days. I don’t need to enlighten anybody; if you’ve been listening to this music for any amount of time longer than two years, you know this all too well. Then there’s those bands that have left their mark on the underground and are still highly revered to [&hellip

Setherial

When it comes to Sweden and Swedish sound, (if you allow me this boring cliché) it is impossible that the band Setherial doesn’t come to my mind. The massive sound’s production and the blast beats have always been two uppermost ingredients of their Black Metal formula. Deeply plunged in the scene since 1993, I noticed [&hellip
