Deathspell Omega – The Synarchy of Molten Bones LP

Winter is on its way. The harbinger of this message is the new Deathspell Omega record The Synarchy of Molten Bones which pierces the gray clouds of mediocrity as a whirling mass of blastbeats, icy angular guitars and trademark esotericism. Kind of a no-brainer, really. Pre-orders now up direct from the force itself. The Synarchy […]

Tape Tuesday: Predatory Light – s/t CS

The Psychic Violence webstore has been updated with a huge batch of tapes, most notably the new album from black metal luminaries Predatory Light… and you better snatch those two demo represses as well, because we know you slept on ’em the first go round: PREDATORY LIGHT by Predatory Light

Vemod – Venter På Stormene LP

You never stood a chance snatching the colored vinyl version of this brand new pressing of Venter På Stormene, but that shouldn’t stop you from picking up the black vinyl version from Terratur Possessions’ new US retailer: the ever reliable Dark Descent Records. Go on. Venter på stormene by Vemod

Vordr – In The Shadow of the Wolf LP

If you are seeking an epic and sprawling 3xLP of progressive-blackish-metal-tree-worship wankery, then this is not the album you are looking for. Vordr get straight to the point on their newest, and their teeth cut to the bone. Sometimes it’s nice to flip a record only once in order to listen to an entire album, no? […]

Mare Cognitum / Aureole – Resonance: Crimson Void LP

Hello, friends. Split LPs have a tendency to be an unbalanced affair, with one side succumbing to groove wear long before the other. Best of luck picking favorites between these two, then — Mare Cognitum continue on their blackened cosmic trajectory (please see also: their forthcoming LP), while Aureole conjures the necessary wormhole to suck everything back […]

Plebeian Grandstand – False Highs, True Lows LP

Hey, is Spring getting you down? Too much sunlight? Birds chirping? Well we got a way to introduce a little blight into your happy world. The French collective Plebeian Grandstand have a new ripper, packed to the gills with asymmetrical dissonance and blackened tech that is sure to pummel (in the best possible way of […]

Naðra – Allir vegir til glötunar LP

Forum lurkers and scene chasers know: there’s something wicked going on in Iceland these days. The black metal being exported is of a quality that is simply unmatched within any other geographic setting right now. Fallen Empire was in early (as usual) with their vinyl release (and subsequent repressings) of the debut album from Misþyrming and […]

Skáphe – Skáphe² LP

Fallen Empire have added a few dark gems to their webstore over the weekend, including the vinyl pressing of the second album from Skáphe. This one-man black metal force has been augmented into a duo, thanks to the addition of vocals from D.G. of Misþyrming. Pressed on red or black vinyl and available right now from Skáphe² […]

Misþyrming – Söngvar elds og óreiðu LP
