Chris Prophet Unveils First Single from Debut Album Athaza

One-man instrumental progressive metal machine Chris Prophet has released Stargaze, the first single from his debut album Athaza. The full album is set for release on the 8th March 2019. “Star Gaze is definitely one of the songs nearest to my heart. With about six guitars playing at the same time, this was so much fun to record and write as I continuously pushed myself to focus on adapting my sounds to carry across the feeling of insignificance and magnificence when looking up at the night sky.” – Chris Prophet Athaza is the debut album from Pretoria based South African… Continue reading

FLAMMENAAR “Gottes Sohn”

FLAMMENAAR “Gottes Sohn” (Terror Records) It would be strange if I didn’t like the good stuff but I am a sucker for finding stuff that not so many might have heard of. I could be fooling myself in thinking so but since I don’t socialize in any sort of greater black metal network I would like to believe that I am one of few that have heard of this or that. German FLAMMENAAR are new to me although this album is from 2017. What we get here is black metal with an anthemic, epic feeling. Without loosing the raw edge… Continue reading

KIRCHENBRAND “Krankheit Mensch”

KIRCHENBRAND “Krankheit Mensch” (Terror Records) I often find myself feeling at odds when I discover a band that has more than one release to their name. Where should I start? From the beginning or with the latest album. This time I don’t have to think too much about it. This is KIRCHENBRAND’s second album, so I guess that I will start from almost the start. This is my first ever encounter with this Austrian band, apart from the interview I did that is up on the site. This is black metal in what I would like to describe as the… Continue reading

MOGH “Kirshah Khutai Kirkhoda”

MOGH “Kirshah Khutai Kirkhoda” (Terror Records) I am a die hard atheist. I have been so since childhood, even though I might not have known of it back then. To me it doesn’t matter what religion you are. It is all the same to me. But that also means that I don’t have any issue with people that are anti-Christian or in the case of MOGH anti Islam. Like MOGH. If western black metal bands can be anti-Christian then middle eastern black metal bands can be anti Islam. Just because you were born in a certain place doesn’t mean that… Continue reading

MOGH “Gach Pazh”

MOGH “Gach Pazh” (Terror Records) I am not so much for ethnic music, or the use of ethnic instruments in the music. Not that I mind it or have any sort of issues with it. I just don’t care too much about it. But when you come from the middle east it is almost obligatory to use ancient instruments. Like MOGH does in the opening track of “Gach Pazh”. Having just gotten to know of this band’s music through the demo I reviewed earlier I had now real idea what this album would be like. But I gotta say that… Continue reading

MOGH “Paradigm Shift”

MOGH “Paradigm Shift” (Terror Records) Thankfully I didn’t have to wait that long for a new album to drop in on me. This is MOGH’s latest offering. This is more of the same stuff that was on the previous album. More of that ritualistic black metal that they did so well on the last album. if you are looking for some old school Norwegian 90s black metal you better look elsewhere. If you like stuff like Mephorash, or Mortuus to some extent, as much as I do you will have a field day with this one. Over 8 tracks we… Continue reading
