Akantha – Baptism in Psychical Analects Review

“‘There are few things in this world as pleasant as raw black metal.’ What foolish KenWords those were.

Slidhr – Deluge Review

“I wouldn’t blame you for having the thought in the back of your mind for giving Slidhr‘s album a miss based solely on the fact black metal has become rather over-saturated with copycats and generally uninteresting bands. I hear the pitchforks raising already so allow me to stress that I adore black metal, it being one of my favoured subgenres of extreme metal, but I really have fallen out of touch with recent acts over the last five years.” I for one, support the pitchforks coming out and the forming of angry blackened mobs…after you read what Noctus has to say about Slidhr.
