Doomsday Ceremony - Black Heart

Brazil’s black metal troupe Doomsday Ceremony is back with their sophomore effort, Black Heart. The band has been around since 2000, but have not had much output in their tenure. Hopefully, their latest release will change that. The opening track, “Vultures of War,” shows that the band has musical talent showing off some nice lead

Metal Review – Ereb Altor – Nattramn (2015)

Ereb Altor - Nattramn

Pagan/black/doom metal act Ereb Altor is a band that I have a ton of respect for. Simply stated, they kick ass. Formed in 2003 from the ashes of doom metal band Forlorn, who have since changed their name to Isole, the band’s sound has been all over the place from their viking metal roots to

Vorna - Ei Valo Minua Seuraa

Finland’s Vorna is back with their sophomore effort, Ei Valo Minua Seuraa, a collection of seven tracks of melodic brilliance and power.

Hegemon - The Hierarch

French black metal band Hegemon is back with their fourth album, The Hierarch, the band’s first album in seven years. As expected, the band’s technical approach is still there and their layered sound is simply exquisite. Their sound is extremely atmospheric and entices the listener to take a trip to the land being described in

Metal Review: Sacrificium Carmen – Ikuisen Tulen Kammiossa (2015)

Sacrificium Carmen - Ikuisen Tulen Kammiossa

Finnish black metal outfit Sacrificium Carmen is a band that should become known very quickly if their debut album, Ikuisen Tulen Kammiossa, has anything to do with that. The band has a distinct black metal sound mixed with occult metal with an intensity not heard by every band out there. Basically, Sacrificium Carmen sound like
