Immortal Sense – Call It Anything

When I got the material of Immortal Sense, my first thought was how it would sound since I have never heard any bands from Japan till date and I was not a bit disappointed when I heard their first two tracks out of curiosity. This actually made me listen to their entire album 5 times [&hellip

Pestilent Grave – A New Aeon Under Satan

A New Aeon Under Satan, from Dutch cult Pestilent Grave, continues the raw and gritty black metal ritual that fans can expect from this solitary sorcerer.
