Vreid – Welcome Farewell

Vreid - Welcome Farewell Cover

Welcome Farewell

Did really two whole years pass since the release of the brilliant record V of the Norwegian Vreid? The Lyrics derive of the circle of life in short stories and the music clearly follows this model. What are the changes from the acclaimed predecessor and is this record still worth listening to?

Caladan Brood – Echoes of Battle

Black metal is one of these genre, in which you’ll find quite a bunch of mere copies of the genres idols. Many bands copy the style, atmosphere, special mixture of genres or even the fundament of their records without adding a single thing. On the first sight the american band Caladan Brood is a copy cat …

Belenos – L’Ancien Temps [Rerelease]

We concluded the last year with a retrospection and so do we begin the new one. This retrospective view will contain three demo “tapes” of the french Belenos which were combined on a compilation called L’Ancien Temps. This compilation was originally released in 2004 (with one demo less, though). Is this compilation interesting enough to buy?

In terms of music, you have to say, that the band Australasia offers an intersection of post-rock/metal, shoegaze, electronica and black-metal. Something you have heard …

Netra – Sørbyen

About two years ago, I received one of the most impressive debut record I’ve ever heard. This piece of art featured a completely new style of black metal, which was mixed with trip hop influences, you probably never heard before. There was a huge thrill of anticipation according his new record called Sørbyen, which features an impressive …

Subterranean Disposition – Subterranean Disposition

It’s often hard to describe why someone likes a record, especially those that are only special because there are some details “hidden”. It’s not even necessary that those details take much space to affect your opinion. The Australian musician Terry Vainoras surely understood this, as his project Subterranean Disposition would not stand out of the puddle …

Euclidean – Euclidean [Demo]

Why would a band say that they are playing “post-black metal”, when they truly have nothing in common with the aforementioned genre? They clearly hope that some people still like the hype-train and therefore decide to listen to their record, ignoring the risk that they would be truly disappointed when they find out that the …
