This isn’t so much a step up from their debut as it is an evolution in form and skill, a complex and intuitive record that marks Kjeld as a band to watch out for in 2021.
‘The Helm of Sorrow’ is a glorious extra from the minds of Emma Ruth Rundle and Thou.
Pharaoh Overlord manage to blend past, present and future into one outstanding work of art entitled ‘6’.
The heady mix of grooves and fuzzy riffs continue on Here Lies Man’s heavily packed relentless fourth album.
Her melodic sense, the ability to shift tempos, and some excellent vocals, and what you get is some very cool late-night music that shifts from cozy dreams to slight nightmares and back with ease.
this album as it is chock full of mood lifting melodies, swinging harmonies and assured, classic “jangle pop” playing…a very cool return.
This is a fine EP from a promising young group. I hope to see a lot more from them.
We need this album. This is music that is loud, fast, furious and knows damn well that it is dumber than Lloyd Christmas. A relentless pummelling to the face, devoid of subtlety and overflowing with insults and anger.
I’ve Seen All I Need To See is a perfect addition to The Body’s unmatchable discography and its deeply agonising spirit will surely resonate with those of you who feel defeated by 2020.
A slab of dark, dirty, diabolical doom metal brought to you by the Primordial’s Alan Averill. Alchemical Warfare’s grime-flecked production and insistence on dragging itself out may grate with some, but ultimately only add to the evil aura.
It’s a finely crafted, frankly, very good album. It shows a band on a journey and not afraid to experiment. There is everything from heavy as hell, thick riffs to melodic piano and brass. I truly hope there are some music venues to go back to hear this music live

Over three tracks Aberration convey a palpable hellscape of vivid crawling terror and show a vast imagination in their nuanced songwriting, perfect for any metal head to dream darkly in under their audial blanket of unseen nightmares.
A highly competent and flawlessly executed black metal album that owes a lot to more traditional heavy metal in terms of song structure, production style and guitar melodies.
Hairetis and Harper were able to combine disparate sounds and not so often used instruments to combine into music that is a true joy.
