Most recent reviews:


    Thou's latest full-length release simply cements their status as Doom royalty, delivering their dynamic vision across a huge spread of top-tier music.
 cdimgIII: The Forest Within The Tree
    It's been a long time since Deadbird's last outing, but this latest full-length shows they haven't lost any of their powerful intensity or fearless delivery.

Synaptic Veil
    Still demonstrating more potential than actual progress, Romanian band Descend Into Despair's latest album teases rather than delivers.
 cdimgLe Mur Des Ombres
    Despite its misleading artwork, this debut album from Canadian Post-Metal/Post-Core band À L'Ombre D'Héméra qualifies as a diamond in the rough.

Silver (EP)
    Revisiting this early '00s EP reinforces the view that Jesu's first few releases remain essential Doom listening.
 cdimgThe Fae Queen
    Mixing raw Black/Doom with Ambient, US band Nemorensis nonetheless deliver that fairly standard package with a noticeable deftness and skill.

    A fun band, but frankly neither advancing the Bathory vibe nor bringing the Doom, Aeonless are somewhat marooned in '80s Black Metal mediocrity.
    Canterbury's Famyne do an excellent job of blending their disparate influences into a consistent debut full-length album.
cdimgGospel Of Despair
    Monolith Cult deliver a brand of old school sounding epic doom that just barely fails to deliver into the excellent category.
    This steadfast and concerted debut effort from Colossus Morose is a nostalgic, but not dated, old-school Death/Doom work.
