Hellbringer

(why still writing a review on a release that came out more than four months ago? First of all, because we did receive this material very recently, and secondly because this stuff is much too tasty not to take a bite…)

Australian three-piece Hellbringer was formed in 2007 as Forgery. To avoid confusion, and law issues, with Norway’s Forgery, the band decided to change its moniker into the current one in 2010.

Infernal Death

The Polish band Infernal Death recorded Gniew at Hellsaw Studio with Pawel Bogaczewicz, the band’s drummer, in 2010 and 2011. With this album, completely ‘sung’ in their home country’s native tongue, the quintet brings a form of very down-earthed, primal Death Metal with a splendid equilibrium in between blasting eruptions and totally decelerated parts, breathing a purest feeling of Old School, with, of course, a certain Polish oriented spirit.

Nominon

This year, Nominon will celebrate their twentieth anniversary, so all together: hurray (20x)!

No thanks, my bold friends…

Saratan

Polish horde Saratan (Arab for ‘cancer’, if I’m not mistaken) return with their third full length after the recruitment of two new members (formerly and / or currently active in e.g. Mord’A’Stigmata and Witchking). In a couple of months, the quartet will celebrate its tenth anniversary, but in mean time we might welcome a new full length, lasting for thirty seven minutes.

The Earth King

Bart Piette is one of Belgium’s best known artists within the Noise / Electronics / Industrial-scene. Some of the projects he’s involved with, as solo-artist or with partner(s) in crime: Clophill, NDE (with Koen ‘Mürnau’ Osier), Alle Sagen Ja, Experiments In Darkness or, last but certainly not least: Dead Man’s Hill.

Thyrfing

NoiseArt Records is a label that is growing enormously. Not that evident, for the Music scene is going through a crisis. In this label’s case it has not to do with signing big-selling commercialised acts, yet with signing qualitative bands. Oke, I do not need to exaggerate, because nobody is to like every single release through NoiseArt; I do not either. But most of the albums (and so it leads to the bands as well, of course) are of a more than average quality.

Zombified

Not that long after the mini Backroom Eugenics (review in the archives section), which I could appreciate a lot, Swedish combo Zombified return with their second full length (the first one was called Zombified Slaughtermachine).

Black Burn

Actually this material was compiled and released a while ago, and more than this: this material was written more than thirty years ago (and initially recorded in 1985).

Black Burn is a (Cult) act from Berlin, Germany, that was formed during the very early eighties by Jörg Franke, who was active in legendary bands like Skylla or Calderone (amongst others).

Cnoc An Tursa

Scottish combo Cnoc An Tursa were able to record The Giant Of Auld at the legendary Foel Studio with highly acclaimed producer Chris Fielding at the helm (think: Ageless Oblivion, Moss, Winterfylleth, Primordial, The Wounded Kings etc.). Result: a killer production, of course!

Endezzma

Endezzma were originally formed by Morten Shax in 1992 as Dim Nagel (also in Bloodsworn). After a long-time hiatus, he decided to reform the band almost seven years ago, with TomasTrondr Nefas’ Torgersbraten in the ranks.
