Isolert – No Hope, No Light… Only Death

  Isolert – No Hope, No Light… Only Death   I don’t need to talk about the importance of Greece for the western civilization development. And neither about their metal scene. This country has presented us some of the best Black Metal albums up to date. There is an element in Greek Metal that highly appeals to me, that is the occult, a mysterious aura. I am not talking about their themes, as obviously those differ from band to band,…

Meadows End – Sojourn

  Meadows End returns in great style. After the amazing “The Sufferwell”, the Swedes present us with a new full-length album titled “Sojourn”. I have reviewed the last album, interviewed the band and I must admit that I am a fan of their music. Besides that, they all seem to be great people. However, as always, I must be impartial and let you know my true feelings concerning the release.   Yes, as I have said they are indeed great…

Akitsa – Grands tyrans

  I remember when I first heard Akitsa back in 2001. It was the début album “Goétie”, which was well received by the listeners of underground Black Metal. The following year the Canadian musical act returned with “Sang nordique”, a release that I deeply admired at the time and still do.
