Ulver ‘ATGCLVLSSCAP’ CD/LP/DD 2016

8th February 2016 at 7:11 pm

Ulver

Ulver returns triumphantly with another masterpiece, at least that’s my modest opinion after listening to ATGCLVLSSCAP. Though it has been two years since the release of its predecessor, the album has been in the works since 2014 in a unique way, like you know…

Northumbia

Northumbia are an ambient metal duo based in Toronto, Canada. Jim Field plays guitar, Dorian Williamson plays bass and between them (and two large, well-stocked pedal-boards) they create a wall of heaving, droning sound that for the most part doesn’t really sound like it’s…

Wolves In The Throne Room

The Weaver brothers have neither been a pair to lose sleep over what others think of them; once upon a time this worked much in their favour. Their attitude towards self sufficient living, farming their own land and reimagining the sound of black metal,…

Daniel Menche ‘Vilke’ LP/CS + DVD 2013

30th June 2013 at 12:29 pm

Daniel Menche

It’s as exhausting sometimes to listen to the work of Daniel Mench as it is to keep up with his sizeable discography. The rewards for achieving either are plentiful however. I’m hard pushed to think of another artist currently working in the general area…
