Album Review: Shining – One One One

This isn’t as much a review as me marvelling at the incredible story of the band Shining. They are classed in the metal circle as an “Avant Garde” metal act. The truth is these Norwegian’s can’t really be classed as anything.

WLM Reviews: Kalmah – Seventh Swamphony

Death Metal isn’t usually a genre I listen to, but Northern European Melodic Death is a sub-style I do occasionally enjoy.  Sure there are some of the bands playing the style that I like – Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom, Wintersun, Solution .

Review of Profane by Svart Crown

The last time I reviewed Svart Crown was a couple of years back for their last release “Witness the Fall.” I gave the album a glowing review, but I also showed my blatant fear of their all-encompassing sound and brutal themes.

Review – II by Eibon

Unless I read something wrong it appears the new album by Eibon aptly titled “II” was recorded in a live setting and brought back to be mixed and mastered. If that is the case it is remarkable for two reasons: 1 – The album doesn’t sound like a live album in any context.

Review – Godslayer (EP) by Lair of the Minotaur

Review: Drones of the Awakening by Eyeconoclast

Eyeconoclast are one of those bands that are steeped in the lore of the underground. They have been everywhere from dark clubs to basement gigs. They have a fan base that would happily carve their long name into their chest if suggested by the band.

Review: Reminiscence by CSEJTHE

I’m going to start this one off with a look at the title track from CSEJTHE’s new one “Reminiscence.” The track starts with an almost epic power metal approach until the vocals come in and darken the entire mood of the song.
