Celtic Dance are a Portuguese band formed two decades ago by Laldaboath, Tzaboath and Conquerer. After the recording of the 1998-debut Ancient Battlecry, Laldaboath and Tzaboath decided to leave, but Conquerer continued his activities with Celtic Dance. FYI: the re-release of that strong debut album was reviewed by undersigned and posted on this site on July 13th 2014.

One of the outfits of Valhgarm (he also acts under the names Wargrinder or Arkarior in bands, formerly or currently, like Vermeth, Monarchia Daemonium or Hellraper, especially as drummer) is Svartfell, which he started in the beginning of this century.
Divine Blasphemy are a new collaboration with current and former members from, for example, Diabolical Principles (the review on The Final Step Before The Dawn was updated on December 24th 2015), Mortuus Caelum (split Impetum In Tenebris: see November 10th 2014), Dizziness (split with Enoid and Mortuus Caelum, see former reference; new album Bound In Strength: February 7th 2016), Acrimonious (for a description on t
On November 10th 2014 we did upload the review I wrote for a split in between Mortuus Caelum, Enoid and Dizziness. The three of them did surprise me, but Dizziness simply impressed me. It might be a personal opinion, but their contribution on that Impetum In Tenebris split album was the best part on it. So I was quite pleased when the very same label, Lower Silesian Stronghold, did send me the newest effort by this Greek band.
You know that I never mind writing something for an ‘older’ release, in case it is truly worth deserving my time and attention, and/or when some additional support / promotion can be of help. This certainly goes for some releases on the French label Hass Weg Productions. The reason is simple: honesty, pride, truth and especially: devotion!
One of the most productive Spanish (Black) Metal artists for sure is Javier ‘Erun’ Sixto, (formerly or currently) active under the banner of e.g.
It’s always a sardonic pleasure to listen to a (new) album on Lower Silesian Stronghold. With this sixth album by Poland’s Demonic Slaughter it’s no difference. This time in co-operation with French label Hass Weg Productions, Lower Silesian Stronghold prove once more that they are able to find qualitative bands (and releases) that are able to please a selected yet superior audience, and able to irritate the stupid, ignorant masses on our filthy globe.
There is no need to write a full introduction on Polish horde Dark Fury, for you can find the necessary information in one of the previously written reviews I did this and last year; just click on the band’s name on top (the same, evidently, goes for the great other material on Lower Silesian Stronghold).
Greek outfit Diabolical Principles is a project by members of e.g. Mortuus Caelum and Divine Blasphemy. Throughout the past decade, they released a handful of stuff, and now they return with the third full length, which is called The Final Step Before The Dawn. The material was produced, engineered, mixed and mastered at the Abyssal Studio and Studio 5 by main members Gareth and Geegor, and the result lasts for sixty two (!) minutes.
