Satyricon – Deep Calleth Upon Deep (, )
31st October 2017 -

Midnight Serpent opens up Deep Calleth Upon Deep. The latest addition to the 26 year legacy of Satyricon and immediately something feels different. 2013 saw the Norwegian black metal legends release a self-titled album and it was received to a degree of indifference. 2017 Satyricon feels better from the very start. The six minutes that Midnight Serpent clock up are… Read More »

So, the question is, how the hell… Read More »

Decapitated – Anticult ()
4th July 2017 -

When a band reaches a certain point in its career, the members can often find themselves in a difficult situation: upset fans by releasing the same sort of album again and again, or upset fans by attempting to branch out and alter their sound. For Decapitated, things have very much leaned towards the latter, especially after the forced change of… Read More »
