Newsflash: A Morte Ad Mortem by Gort!

Rockmusicraider Newsflash - Gort - A Morte Ad Mortem - Album CoverLooks like Italy is going to be on the forefront these days of early fall 2017 when it comes to Black Metal. RMR just covered the New Age Black Metal outfit Parodos. A band that does not fit the Norwegian definition of this genre at all. Yet still gets you an interesting mix of styles that includes at least some spiked fisting. And they managed to keep enough of our deck crew’s interest to get them a review.

But sometimes you still need the real thing. The Black Metal played in the dungeon with THE GOAT watching you from the wall. Way down there, where the mainstream never looks and others don’t venture.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Zeit – Konvergenz (2017) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Zeit - Konvergenz - Album CoverThe old provinces of Eastern Germany seem to be a hotbed for interesting bands of all kinds. Indeed of all things cultural – and beyond. And this goes for theatrical endeavours as well as music of all flavors.  The RockmusicRaider crew had the pleasure to cover special underground bands like Antyra from Leipzig already. You know, these guys with their rough and eerily weird, yet fascinating story-telling techniques. With an extremely epic, but very down-to-earth metal taste. I love them, but they are so out of the mainstream that not many of the RMR fans will follow. It is a special kind of geekery, I admit.

And – indeed – underground breeds more underground.
