Conjurer – Mire (, , , )
22nd February 2018 -

Those who keep their fingers on the pulse of the UK’s underground metal scene would assume it’s going into cardiac arrest with the rate it’s pumping out brilliant records. After hearing Conjurer‘s 2016 debut EP listeners knew that the first full-length, Mire would be yet another palpitation for the British scene. It’s not surprising that another astonishing UK act’s debut is out… Read More »

The six minutes that Midnight Serpent clock up are… Read More »

Cradle of Filth – Cryptoriana (The Seductiveness of Decay) (, , )
6th October 2017 -

In my personal opinion Cradle of Filth are one of the most underrated and underappreciated bands in metal today. They have been consistently brilliant for the better part of a quarter of a century but still remain overlooked. 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 »
