RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Mist of Misery - Fields of Isolation - Album Cover The RockmusicRaider talent scout is on the prowl again. Always looking for new, slightly different undercurrents in the rock and metal multiverse, we came across the Swedish band Mist of Misery and their newest mini album Fields of Isolation. What do they have on offer? A tasty mix of Atmospheric Black Metal and Post Black Metal with a doomish, melancholic twist. 

Drawing from many influences in the Black Metal world, their tune sounds like a mix of Ashbringer, Sojourner and Eschatos. Throw in some early Dimmu Borgir, Burzum and a [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider Review - Sons ov Omega - Reign - Album Cover Today I would like to lose a few words on a fascinating and intriguing record. Something stuck between early Tiamat (the band), the dark reckoning of Moonspell and the hungry urges of Darkend.

It boasts a Gothic tinge, just enough to remind you of where it could be, yet it is not quite there. You will find dark hints of eternal nights, weird-headed gods and inklings of dark, bloody rituals. Of atrocious devilry in long forgotten cities.

Fight fire with fire in a sense, the kind of anger management every metal head can buy into wholeheartedly, right? And I found just the right medication in the 2016 re-release of Bloodfields, the 2nd EP of the Swedish Black Metal outfit Wormlight.

And why on earth are we featuring a re-release from last year? [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider Review - Vanha - Within The Mist fo Sorrow - Album Cover2016 was a pretty good year for all things doom, methinks. RockmusicRaider just released a review on the US band Khemmis and their kind of progressive and melodious doomish self.

And – whoom – here we go again. 

The fearless RMR scout team just unearthed a tasty morsel of a similar ilk from very late in 2016. But mostly delivered in best, growly Doom Death Metal fashion – with clear vocals and croaks expertly mixed. And the team here thought that the slowly chugging beat of My Dying Bride could not be bested.
