I normally don’t review demos and I am not certain why. Perhaps they are reserved for potential labels and I just don’t get many in my mailbox. Maybe I hear a sample of them online and am not impressed, telling the band to ‘contact me when the debut is out’. Perhaps a Myspace page doesn’t [&hellip

Narrow House – A Key to Pangrieb

Narrow House are one of those rare breeds that release an album that defies review. I’ve been actively listening to A Key to Pangrieb for weeks on end and STILL cannot reach a point of satisfaction with describing it adequately for the following reasons: It’s virtually flawless in structure, flow, composition, delivery, and production.

Hellige – Demo

This Argentinian band was sent to me by the incipient Argentian label, Witness Hell Productions, whose sole proprietor is involved in the long running death metal band Prion and this album is already on my essential black metal releases of 2012.
