Solbrud: Jærtegn Categories: Albums • Denmark • Metal Solbrud: Jærtegn Jærtegn can be loosely translated to omen – a phenomenon that is believed to foretell the future, usually foreseeing horrible events like war, plagues or hunger. There is nothing horrible about the second full length from the Danish quartet Solbrud, however. If anything it foresees a new wave of Danish black ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
Hiidenhauta: Hiiden Virsi Categories: Finland • Metal • Videos Hiidenhauta: Hiiden Virsi Since the release of their debut album in March this year I have been listening an awful lot to Hiidenhauta hailing from Satakunta, Finland. The band offers a confident and interesting take on black metal and the album still grows on me. The band has now released their first video ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
Sea: Sea Categories: Albums • Denmark • Metal Sea: Sea Listening to 'Sea' is like putting on your favourite vintage metal-shirt. Sure, it may not be fashionable and perhaps it reeks a bit of smoke and stale beer, but it fits perfectly and you can’t help but love it. The four youngsters in Sea know their Thin Lizzy, their Dio, ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
Myrkur: Nattens Barn Categories: Denmark • Metal • Videos Myrkur: Nattens Barn Myrkur has made quite a splash in the Danish metal community since the release of the eponymous EP earlier this month.

Stench: Archways Categories: Metal • Sweden • Tracks Stench: Archways Deathmetallers Stench will release their second album ‘Venture’ late September in Europe and late October in North America.

Sólstafir: Ótta Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland • Metal Sólstafir: Ótta It has always been a bit of a stretch to call Sólstafir metal. On ‘Ótta’ the term really doesn’t make sense anymore, but I got no better genre that really covers it. The Icelandic four-piece just makes music. Haunting, beautiful, rich, atmospheric music that sounds like nothing else. ‘Ótta’ may ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Sólstafir: Ótta Categories: Iceland • Metal • Tracks Sólstafir: Ótta As regular readers might know we are quite fond of Sólstafir, deeming their albums anything from "stunningly brilliant" to "motherf***ing awesome". So we are pretty darn excited about their forthcoming album 'Ótta' - especially after listening to the title track. It’s almost ten minutes long and it is stunning. And ...
