Join The Kvlt by Espi Kvlt

  • Written by Melinda >Lunar Blood – Twilight Insurgency> Red & Anarchist black metal/death metal>New Jersey, USA>Released February 18, 2022>Bandcamp Link Cover painted by Misanthropic Art Illustrations “Killing us under cover of law all this violence takes its toll we’ll arm ourselves. Bars and clubs turn to armories new black coffins for old white men” Absolutely uncompromising antifascist blackened death metal from a young New Jersey band. I say uncompromising because this isn’t your artful poetic thinly veiled approach to antifascism, but rather a very direct blunt approach to antifascism, the bloody hammer of antifascism. On Facebook their page is marked as a business: Funeral service & [...]
  • Written by Barlow Fire to The Prisons – Fire to the Prisons EP black metal/doom/blackgazeOut June 3rd, 2022https://fire2theprisons.bandcamp.com/ Solo artists producing metal of any kind is always such a curiosity, on the one hand being a solo acoustic act or a solo hip hop act has some a kind of sense to it, you don’t need to necessarily have anyone else, and you can put out music at your pace, the same – however – can not be said for black metal. Trying to navigate several different instruments and vocals all on your own seems like such a daunting task – particularly for someone like this [...]

Album Review: Beleth – “Silent Genesis” 5.5/10 (Death/Groove)

During the death metal renaissance that’s been happening over the last couple of years it feels like a few other related styles have all but fallen by the wayside. Groove metal is one of these, with releases hitting here and there but all being overshadowed by a particularly strong stretch for the big brother subgenre. Maybe that’s due to a lack of notable new blood, or the fact that the titans of groove metal are all in their senior years in the scene now […]

Album Review: Dr Colossus – “I’m a Stupid Moron With an Ugly Face and A Big Butt and my Butt Smells and I Like to Kiss My Own Butt” 9/10 (Stoner Doom)

This is a big one for me, Dr Colossus have been my favorite Australian band since flooring me with The Dank in 2018. They combined good old Aussie stoner rock and stories told using The Simpsons. Fans of the show will have unlimited fun picking apart the references, I know I did with The Dank when I reviewed it. For this one, I’ll let the readers discover them for themselves since the band was cool enough to get me such an early listen of the album. Dr Colossus are back with a new LP, new merch and an Australian tour! […]

Album Review: Feculent – “The Grotesque Arena” 8/10 (Death Metal)

Releasing on March 19, The Grotesque Arena is the debut album from Brisbane’s own Feculent, one of a number of fantastic bands to come recently out of Australia. This could almost be called a supergroup, if that term meant anything these days, as it features a whole slew of great musicians that you might know from other bands: Matthew Budge of Resin Tomb, Siberian Hell Sounds, and Consumed on vocals, Kaleb Doherty of thrashers Idle Ruin on guitar, Jim Dandy of Descent on bass, and master-of-all-trades Brendan Auld on drums. Auld is the mastermind behind grimy one-man project Snorlax, which put one of 2020’s most underrated death metal records, as well as a member of Resin Tomb, Siberian Hell Sounds, Consumed, and Necroseptic. He also does the production and mixing here for Feculent. Needless to say, this lineup is stacked, and boy does the music reflect that. […]

Album Review: No Living Witness – “Cosmic Simulacra” 7.5/10 (Melo Death)

No Living Witness is one of those bands that doesn’t hold its sound to a single subgenre. Throw a death metal base in the pot to start, and then start chucking in every ingredient you can think of that pairs with it. A meaty hunk of melody gets things really going, and then add several hearty spoonfuls of black metal, a few slices of technicality, and couple dashes of prog. Season with a pinch or two of brutality. Let that simmer together so the ingredients create layers of style and flavor. Now start dishing that tastiness up. That heaping helping in front of you is Cosmic Simulacra, No Living Witness’ new album* […]

Album Review: Serpent Column – “Kathodos” 8.5/10 (Black Metal)

Upon first listen, I’m immediately reminded of the first time that I listened to some of the “catchier” tracks off of DeathSpell Omega’s Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice. There’s a lot of dissonance and discordance going on in this album and Theophonos – the sole member of Serpent Column – delivers it in full dose on this album. In fact, he goes perhaps even one step further by starting the opening track “Departure of Splinters” in what sounds like the middle of a song, like changing dials on a radio station and hearing the tail-end of a really cool Black Metal song. Then, in comes a funky head-bobbing rhythm with some off-kilter drums and a toe-tapping beat. […]

Album Review: Warkings – “Revenge” 8.4/10 (Power Metal)

A legion of 4+1 warriors of various lands (and times!) have invaded the metal scene for the second time. This time to have their Revenge upon the adversary. A Viking, a Tribune, a Spartan and a Crusader have teamed up with the Queen of the Dammed to deliver a stout, boisterous and enticing album for those who hunger for grandeur and are thirsty for glory!
