Clouds Taste Satanic – Dawn Of The Satanic Age

Clouds Taste Satanic – Dawn Of The Satanic Age

Overall it’s a great album, and I really do enjoy it a lot. I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss the post-rock influences in their sound, but this new direction seems to be working for them. Loud as hell, soul-crushingly heavy, and thoroughly enjoyable. – By Aaron Edwards

True Widow – Avvolgere

True Widow – Avvolgere

With ‘Avvolgere’ True Widow share something new that is a vibe of restless darkness served in the softest way. You’ll be completed trapped in their loop. – By Daniela Patrizi

Sinsaenum – Echoes Of The Tortured

Sinsaenum – Echoes Of The Tortured

This is a good album, but by losing a few tracks it could have been a bit special. Will be very interesting to see what they do next. – By Steve Fallows

Holy Serpent – Temples

Holy Serpent – Temples

Be warned. You may not warm to this immediately, but when you do, you may find yourself shopping for stuff that hasn’t been in fashion since the first time flares were the thing. You may even feel the need for a lava lamp. Or at least a long skateboard. – By Matt Butler

Interview: Chris Naughton from Winterfylleth

Interview: Chris Naughton from Winterfylleth

Guido Segers caught up with Chris Naughton, singer and founder of British atmospheric black metal band Winterfylleth, to discuss the new album ‘The Dark Hereafter’ and more.

Sahg – Memento Mori

Sahg – Memento Mori

‘Momento Mori’ finds Sahg heavier, proggier, and putting out their best album to date. Sit back, relax, put on the headphones, and let wave after wave of groovy melancholy wash over you. – By Wade Reitz

Harm Wülf – Hijrah

Harm Wülf – Hijrah

Harm Wülf has managed to create a vast and gloomy piece that is excellently written and tied together yet spacious enough to keep returning to and appreciating the depth of each track. – By Sam Robinson

Various Artists – Texture Series Volume One

Various Artists – Texture Series Volume One

A collection of varied moods and textures that should suit any fan of ambient music. By Elizabeth Klisiewicz

Seven Impale – Contrapasso

Seven Impale – Contrapasso

A very well done, and enjoyable, progressive rock record, though more nostalgic than innovative. – By Aidan Clucas

Neurosis – Fires Within Fires

Neurosis – Fires Within Fires

Beautiful, angular, obsidian, here they come again with their 11th studio album ‘Fires Within Fires’ and, my God, it’s full of stars. – By Thomas Laycock

Okkervil River – Away

Okkervil River – Away

Definitely a late night or very early morning album, filled with interesting personal tidbits, vivid imagery, and shimmering, sun-kissed melodies, all while a pervasive sadness fills the expansiveness of the listening experience. By Elizabeth Klisiewicz

Eriza – Arde

Eriza – Arde

Like Hamlet’s ‘sheeted dead’ in the Roman streets, Buenos Aires-based experimental cello/bass/piano trio Eriza squeak and gibber on their debut album Arde, out now on Pan Y Rosas Discos. But it’s a noise that bites deeply into the consciousness – if you’re in the mood for it. By Will Pinfold

Review + Track Premiere: Eschatos – The Grand Noir

Review + Track Premiere: Eschatos – The Grand Noir

Occasionally ambient, at times raging, always displaying potent songwriting chops and musicianship, Eschatos brings a smile to my face few bands this year have given me. – By Al Necro
