Sinsaenum – Ashes EP (, )
23rd November 2017 -

Sinsaenum is a project that piqued a lot of interest when it first emerged, when Frédéric Leclercq (of DragonForce fame) and Vimic’s Joey Jordison teamed up with extreme metal royalty in Attila Csihar (Sunn O))), Mayhem), Stéphan Buriez (Loudblast), Heimoth (Seth) and Sean Zatorsky (Dååth, Chimaira) to release an album of blackened death metal built around demos Leclercq had written… Read More »

It is mind-boggling to me, but with that said their latest album Cryptoriana (The Seductiveness of Decay) is yet another gem to… Read More »

Thy Art Is Murder – Dear Desolation (, )
13th September 2017 -

I think its safe to say we all thought there may not be another Thy Art Is Murder album after ‘Holy War’ and the spectacular exit of vocalist CJ McMahon. But as they say time is a great healer and with CJ now focused and back in the fold, there is a new album in the form of ‘Dear Desolation’… Read More »
