Lower Silesian Stronghold

Dark Fury (1)

For almost two decades, Dark Fury bless our sacred homelands with their dark (aural) fury (that was an easy one to start with). It’s  one of the projects with Lower Silesian Stronghold’s owner / runner Krzystof, a label that did surprise me enormously lately (click on the label’s name on top of this review to check out some other material kindly provided by them).


On April 24th 2015 we did upload the review for Deprive’s Into Oblivion, which undersigned did appreciate a lot. As a matter of fact, I am quite ‘fan’ of several things created by Erun; think: Hrizg, Briargh, CrystalMoors, Moonshine, Eldereon, Forestdome and many more. And as you could have guessed in the meantime, Stormstone too is a project by Javier ‘Erun-Dagoth’ Sixto, once again a solo-outfit.

A Monumental Black Statue

Italian act A Monumental Black Statue was formed as a more Pagan / NS-oriented outlet for some Criptum-members, but soon they became more active than Criptum. A Monumental Black Statue released three recordings before, and actually this one was originally supposed to be the second Criptum-full length. Yet since the latter did split up…

Dark Fury

In quite an interesting parcel recently send to our headquarters, Lower Silesian Stronghold’s label owner Krzysztof included several Dark Fury-albums. Undersigned was quite ‘happy’, for I truly adored the album Synningthwait (check out the review on the update of July 21st 2014).

Xaos Oblivion

My first acquaintance with Xaos Oblivion was in 2008, when this Polish horde did release the album Antithesis Of Creation. Before there were some demonstrational recordings under the name Oblivion, yet since there were several Polish acts with that very same moniker, the name turned into Xaos Oblivion. Some more albums did follow under the Xaos Oblivion-moniker, each time praised and hailed, at least by those who understand quality.


Canadian act Geimhre was formed almost fifteen years ago, and currently consists of (former / current) members of e.g. Wolfhammer Division and Fomorii.


Next year Californian band Nokturne will celebrate their twentieth anniversary. So, feel free to sing a birthday-sing-along…

Mortuus Caelum - Enoid - Dizziness

First a remark, for this split has been announced as a Greek collaboration; even within the CD-book gets mentioned: ‘Hellenic Black Metal War …raise the banners…’. So, what’s my ‘problem’? Actually I do not care, but being a purist (I admit: I am a semi-autistic freak…) I have to make this remark. This split consists of three projects amongst which two that hail from Greece indeed, and one that actually is not located in Hellas at all.

Popravčí Vrch

Popravčí Vrch (aka Execution Hill) are a peaceful act from Czech Republic, formed in 2012 as a side-project by Poprava members Kat (v, b), Raborym (d; also known from his current or past activities in bands like Dark Fury [the review on their 2014-album Synningthwait was posted on July 21st; check it out!], Othar, Thoth, Thor’s Hammer or Selbsmord), and
