Necrophobic – Dawn Of The Damned (Century Media Records)

Necrophobic are riding on the waves of inspiration lately. Recruiting the guitar duo of Johan Bergebäck and Sebastian Ramstedt back in the band in 2016 was probably the best decision band leader Joakim Sterner (drums) has ever taken. Actually, with vocalist Andreas Strokirk (who sang on the legendary debut The Nocturnal Silence) also having returned..

Interview with Joakim Sterner of Necrophobic

Necrophobic are currently riding on the waves of deserved recognition. Finally. These Swedish black/death worshippers have always put out quality albums, but through the years, something was always missing – was it the production, the distribution, or something else. With 2018’s masterpiece Mark Of The Necrogram, the band released a career highlight and now, two..

Naglfar – Cerecloth (Century Media Records)

There are bands one can always rely on when expectations need to be met. Melodic black metal Swedes Naglfar are one such band. Bassist-turned-vocalist Kristoffer W. Olivius and guitar player Andreas Nilsson form the core of the band since 1993, with second guitarist Marcus E. Norman part of the line-up for the last 20 years...

Cloak – The Burning Dawn (Season Of Mist)

I have often wondered why we need categorization of the music we are listening to and reviewing. I can agree that, sometimes, all is needed is to know if the music is good or not, but, on the other hand, even if listening to music is a deeply personal experience (headbanging among thousands of maniacs..

Mayhem – Daemon (Century Media Records)

More than 5 years have passed since Mayhem last released new material, with Esoteric Warfare and, to say the anticipation was high, would be an understatement. Daemon appears to be the second full-length album with heavy contribution in the composing department from The Konsortium and Nidingr axeman Teloch, who was not afraid to dig deep..

Urn – Iron Will Of Power (Season Of Mist)

Is “unholy black worship” a style? In the case of Finland’s Urn – yes, it is. I remember these guys from as far back as 2001, when their debut album 666 Megatons (recorded in two days only!) stated quite clearly what their ethos was. With 5 full-lengths in their 25-year career, Urn cannot be called..

MAYHEM

Mayhem is a legend, and an institution in extreme music. 1994’s epochal De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas still shocks with the essence of pure evil it conveys, while at the same time it also was, and still is, one of the most original and unique expressions of the black metal genre. The new, long-awaited, sixth full-length..
