Most recent reviews:


Bravery, Truth And The Endless Darkness
    The sophomore release from Capilla Ardiente. Best Epic Doom metal album of year 2014? Probably.
 cdimgOverhead, Without Any Fuss, the Stars Were Going Out
    Station Dysthymia's sophomore: a real audio description of the Apocalypse.

Distant Satellites
    Anathema’s new album is not a turning point, but it is more interesting and relevant than their last releases.
 cdimgBeyond Shades
    Crypt Of Silence produce some nice dual guitar work, but stick a little too close to the Mourning Beloveth template.

Still Waiting
    Idiosyncratic and inspired, Hirsute is a class act.
    Simple, stylish, confident, accomplished…Excruciation's latest album doesn’t just look good, it sounds great too.

Escapism (split with Ennui)
    A standout shared release from Abstract Spirit and Ennui brings this Funeral Doom concept to life.
 cdimgRecitation (EP)
    Recitation present a debut that stands firmly and honestly with what is true to the band.
cdimgUlvaja (EP)
    Some interesting themes from the returning Rippikoulu, but overall a little too much 'been there, heard that'.
 cdimgAs All Seasons Die
    Profetus have come close enough to perfection to even make summer seem like Doom.
