Give us a history of the band, if you will. RAVEN CHACON: Tenderizor started as a long-time collaboration between myself and the Day Brothers, Mike and [&hellip

Revolting Interview

Give readers a brief history of Revolting! Where, when and why did you form? Revolting was the spawn of Billy from Razorback Records, him and me decided to make a project together and then it just went from there to what it is now. The idea was to make some dirty death metal with the [&hellip

Bestial Warlust

  Well this was indeed a looooong time coming. For not only is Australia historically been one of the finest hotspots for underground metal, but the mighty Bestial Warlust definitely ranks as one of its finest exports. This EP got swept under the rug and forgotten for many years now, and Hell’s Headbangers finally did [&hellip

Raventale – Transcendence (BadMoodMan Records)

This Ukranian black metal band has been a consistent favorite of mine in recent years, so much in fact that I was actually awaiting this release and it’s been years since I’ve been excited about an upcoming album. Each release shows more growth in both atmosphere and intensity, somewhat bordering on the melodic, introspective, desolate, [&hellip

Darkest Grove

Hails! Tell us about the new album, Coming of 2012! I was very impressed by its production and aggressive delivery! Coming Of 2012 is a philosophical group of ideas that have brought us to our current predicament. Evil in its many natural, yet reactive environments. An evolution of cause and effect to chaotic reality. Mostly [&hellip

Wilt – Wilt (self-release)

Wilt are from the middle of Canada, hence THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, which is where they take you to in the 4 deserted and cold atmospheric black metal songs that comprise this EP. The first thing that I liked about Wilt was that they had that depth and coldness of Summoning (minus the symphonic bits), [&hellip

Please give Forbidden readers a brief but brutal history of the band! When, where and why did the band form?Frosthelm started in the spring of 2009 as the satanic spawn of a band called Servium, based in Minot, ND. We experimented for almost a year with different sounds and musical styles. When we found something [&hellip

Paroxsihzem – S/T ( Dark Descent Records)

Paroxsihem is the full-length debut from this Canadian black/death mob that plays out like slow asphyxiation by death doom/funeral doom densities and drawn out bleak rib imploding and lung puncturing with distinct traditional and Swedish/Finnish death metal elements, short black metal amelodic arpeggio leads, and a lead hand and foot on the percussive end wielding [&hellip

Xiphoid Dementia – Secular Hymns (Malignant Records)

“Breathe” equates to dark ambient layers of astral drone with indecipherable sounds of  live horror and suffering, with possibly even rants of insanity slightly below the surface. When I say “drone” I don’t mean boring and monotonous, it’s more like classic Lustmord nightmarish electronic drifts of soothing and yet unnerving pieces of Hell being gradually [&hellip

Akashah – The Dance of Beltane Fire (Strong Survive Records)

I initially came across Akashah through working with DTB over the last few years, but nothing really prepared me for the incredible atmospheres and sonic mastery that is this USBM act until I actually heard them for myself.  Sadly mislabeled by many as NSBM, something that I have a hard time stomaching and refuse to [&hellip
