Microdose: Hellripper, Clayshaper, White Crone, & Sallow Moth

Four great albums, four short reviews. The theme is solo visions, so people who through a lot of hard work put together their own album. They’re all highly creative people who put out quality music on their own terms, and often with the help of a friend or two. I’ve basically covered at least one solo project every dose and half of my reviews are of solo projects, I’m just drawn to them. […]

Album Review: Sutrah – Aletheia 10 (Progressive Death)

I have listened to this album so damn much, every time I open my promo library I just have to hear it again. I’m addicted to it. It does so much in the perfect amount of time, 28 minutes of thoughtful, creative and powerful song writing. It has top notch presentation, production and it’s full of ideas that I find moving or stimulating. The artwork, which is among the top I’ve seen this year, is basically depicting me each time I had a revelation about Aletheia while listening. […]

Album Review: Deathwhite – Graven Image 9.4 (Doom Metal)

It’s so early in the year and one of my most anticipated albums is already here. Some backstory for you, I first came across Deathwhite in 2018 when they released their first full length ‘For a Black Tomorrow’. The album blew me away and I’ve been consistently listening to it ever since. I’ve been waiting not so patiently since for news of a second album and so here we are with their second full length. I think I latched onto this band so quickly because of how much they remind me of Katatonia which is easily my favourite band of all time and they haven’t put out a new album in 4-ish years. When I first heard ‘For a Black Tomorrow’ I was instantly drawn in by this band’s likeness to Katatonia but I have stuck around because of the band’s talent and merit. […]

Album Review: 殞煞 Vengeful Spectre – 殞煞 Vengeful Spectre 8.5 (Folk/Black Metal)

It’s very rare I get to cover music from Asia, it’s even more rare that I get to cover music with traditional Asian instrumentation and folk roots. This brings us to Vengeful Spectre, a band that combines black metal with traditional Chinese folk music, and oh my god does it work. It works so well in fact, that I’m very surprised this is the first time I’ve heard something like this. […]

Noob Advice: Getting The Most Out Of Bandcamp

Bandcamp is my favorite platform when researching for my articles and easily the best for underground metal of all subgenres and locations. It has many tools to provide bands and consumers. It saddens me however to see many bands not getting the full potential out of what it has to offer and not gaining any supporters. So this article aims to help bands improve their Bandcamp game, which will in turn improve their publicity and fanbase. Bandcamp is literally a promo pack, music platform, merch store and network hub in one. It’s incredible. It even has built in advertising campaigns and algorithms. […]
