Review: MYRHOLT “Solens Soenn og Maanens Datter”

Review: Marcia Funebre “Marcia Funebre” [Heathen Tribes]

Review: Ironguard “Towards Victory” [Heathen Tribes]

Towards Victory starts with a curious intro, very similar to the rest of the album. In this intro, the bass repeats the same growling line, and then the ...

Review: NECRO “Propaganda” [Sliptrick Records]

Reviews
Necro’s Propaganda is basically a dark joke album. It’s creepy and gross, but it’s not to be taken seriously. They make an album about their views on society ...
