• During the turbulent and uncertain years of 2020-2021, perhaps none were plunged deeper into darkness than those from down under.
However, through solitude and desolation, some of the greatest art is created, as is the case with BLACK LAVA, the emerging blackened death metal quartet from Melbourne (AU). 
Founded by drummer Dan Presland (Vipassi, AMDBL, ex-Ne Obliviscaris) and guitarist Ben Boyle (Vipassi, AMDBL, Hadal Maw), BLACK LAVA draws influence from old school death and black metal bands while injecting groove-laden melodies and progressive elements to create their own experimental sound.
  • Originally a solo project by singer and multi-instrumentalist Will Hunter, Vévaki is a folk band which draws from Nordic heathenism and animistic traditions.
Myth, ritual and a connection with the natural world feed Vévaki’s music, which is both contemporary in sound and wide-ranging in instrumentation.
Vévaki’s second album, ‘Fórnspeki’, finds the band expanding upon their sound while staying true to their folk roots and traditions.
  • Nearly six years after ‘As Was’ made its mark, Black Anvil is returning with its aptly titled fifth full-length, ‘Regenesis’. With a new record label, a new album, and a newfound exploration of dark and black metal, ‘Regenesis’ represents a new dawn for the New York City collective. Make no mistake, ‘Regenesis’ is not a departure from Black Anvil’s identity, but rather serves as the latest progression in the band’s ever-evolving sound. The unrelenting and polished aggression hangs in the balance above dark melodic passages, presenting a dynamic soundscape that serves as the band’s most devastating and existential offering to date. This isn’t just black metal, this is NYBM.
  • OBSIDIOUS are leading the charge for the modern evolution of progressive and technical metal with their debut album, ‘Iconic’. Featuring Linus Klausenitzer (bass), Rafael Trujillo (guitars), Sebastian Lanser (drums), and vocalist Javi Perera (vocals), the band has distinguished and lettered origins in Obscura, Alkaloid, Eternity’s End, and Juggernaut. OBSIDIOUS, however, are a different creature entirely. ‘Iconic’ is technical but not officious, and the album breathes intensity but expands upon it with mellifluent dexterity. With OBSIDIOUS, there’s always a hook: ‘Iconic’ may build upon a prestigious foundation but its vision isn’t restricted to its tenets.
  • Behind black shrouds of obscurity and desolation, the men of GAEREA deliver their odes in cascading maelstroms of aggression and beauty with full-length number three, ‘Mirage.’ Emerging from the age of pandemic to whatever awaits humanity next, the Portuguese horde remains on the frontlines of the next generation of extreme metal. The beauty of GAEREA lies in the directness and simplicity found within their florid tapestry of extremity and aggression. With talons dipped in the inky blood of black metal and scraped across the flesh of human suffering, GAEREA is leading a charge into the future of darkness, and all those who find beauty and power in the dark side of existence would do well to take heed.
  • Since its inception in 2017, enigmatic world music collective HEILUNG has been paving melodic paths to the past with their unique and mystifying sound. Evading all conventional genre tags and the confines of any specific labels, the group aptly self-describes their sound as
  • From death comes rebirth, as is such with STRIGOI.
Formed in the ashes of VALLENFYRE by guitarist/vocalist Gregor Mackintosh (PARADISE LOST) and bassist Chris Casket, the experimental death metal formation is now unleashing their sophomore effort: ‘Viscera’.
This devastating brand of death metal pulls sludge and crust elements while lyrically, the album explores themes of both real and conceptual horror, coalescing into what can only be described as the ultimate mixtape of misery.

  • Since its inception in 2004 by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Justin Greaves, CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX has served as the voice for the voiceless, whether it be animals, the unequal and the different. Henceforth, CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX’s mission has been to shed light on the human condition and the inequalities that befall humankind and its creatures. Their battle marches on with their latest studio album, ‘Banefyre’. The record is imbued with the depth and introspection that will reinforce CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX’s standing as a band that defies genre.
