RockmusicRaider - Solemnity - Through Endless Darkness - Album Cover

Solemnity. Somber, gloomy, grave, and earnest, yet of dark and often sublime beauty. A name of a band that may already turn into an omen of sorts.

Their offering emerges so far from the deep underground that you have trouble finding them. Even if they started to appear on the usual haunts lately. Yet, there’s no trace of a visual, no former works that we could find, even if the band saw the light of day in 2016 already. Invisibility on top of solemnity, that’s quite a cocktail.

But fear naught. Through Endless Darkness does … [...] Click to raid more!

Alright. This is one of these days where this confinement thing demands some real metal. Down, dirty, and speedy it needs to be. So, back down into RMR’s vast music collection we reached to find that perfect record for the cause. And the winner is Verminous from The Black Dahlia Murder.

The slight similarities of the former’s offering with the Australian band Arbrynth‘s A Place of Buried Light made me chuckle a bit, though. Nothing to compare like for like in there, but both bands’ artistic fabric seems to be woven with a similar thread. Must truly be the trees and the Wilde Beasts.

RockmusicRaider - Necronomicon - Unus - Album Cover

It is high time to clean up the loose ends that still flap about our review pipe from last year. On top of that, we – for sure – don’t want to upset the Great Old Ones by forgetting to unchain that review for Necronomicon‘s latest full-length record UNUS (the number one). This newest concoction of those Canadian metal extremists of truly long standing that came to our turntables in late 2019.

The record for sure seamlessly latches on to its former incarnation Advent of the Human God. And this can be good, or … [...] Click to raid more!
