The Ruins Of Fading Light
    US Trad/Epic band Crypt Sermon offer an absolute killer as their sophomore full-length release.
 cdimgDivided By Darkness
    US band Spirit Adrift are relative newcomers, having only been formed in 2015, but they have now crafted three exceptional full-lengths of Doom-influenced Heavy Metal.

La Quintaesencia De J˙piter
    Despite Juan C.'s impeccable Doom credentials, this latest solo work as AstorVoltaires is well-executed Post-Rock, at most melancholic rather than doomy.
 cdimgRuins of Eternity
    US Trad Doom band Orodruin return after a sixteen year gap between albums, but it was worth the wait.

Into Desolate Realms
    Swedish veterans Runemagick's cleaner, milder and less intense stance may not be bad, but it doesn't hit the heights of their earlier work, either.
 cdimgThe Eternal Dance
    Bold and experimental in scope, Dutch Death/Doom band Fašade's latest release is an avantgarde mix that will not appeal to all.
    UK band GÚvaudan achieve something pretty special with their debut full-length - you only get the one shot at making your first album count, and that's exactly what they've done with this epic Doom Metal feast.
 cdimgDethroned Of Our Souls (Compilation)
    Something of a mixed bag with this compiled reissue of Evadne's widely-spaced "demo" releases - but it's nonetheless a nice piece for Doom collectors.
