Newsflash: The Veiled Enigma of Concilivm!

RockmusicRaider - Concilivm - The Veiled Enigma - Album Cover If you think that NordWitch is blackened enough for your taste, then you never heard about Concilivm and their brand of Blackened Death Metal. They joined this unholy world in 2017 and are now re-issuing their 2018 blurb The Veiled Enigma on CD. 

This is one typical underground band from Chile that sets its sights on the old-style groove of long-gone times.

But this is exactly what drew us to this band and their tune. If we can call it that. Gone are all these polished new sounds that permeate the modern Death and Black Metal concoctions. Only downturned guitars, [...] Click to raid more!

Wormlight – Wrath of the Wilds (2018) – Review

RockmusicRaider - Wormlight - Wrath of the Wilds - Album Cover Let’s descend into the pit once again, shall we? And burn a little very black ink on that bloodied altar that eagerly awaits its next ritual.

Wormlight from Sweden are on the prowl again. And their 2018 offering Wrath of the Wilds hungers to be seen.

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Hellfire - Goat Revenge - Album Cover

Unholy Metal Crunch! What is this loudness torturing my eardrums? Something crude.

In Nomine Dei Nostri Satanas Luciferi Excelsi? 

Well, almost, but blasphemously close enough. A juicy mix of a thrashy Heavy Metal beat, Death Metal and deep, dark Black Metal. And the EP Goat Revenge from the Ukrainian horde Hellfire really puts the pedal to the metal on this one in a way seldom heard these days.

Unleashing full-blooded, highly potent riffs together with throaty Death Metal growls and Black Metal rasps, their tune will awake your head-banging urges, make no mistake. At times Goat Revenge sounds like a meatier, more energized sibling [...] Click to raid more!

NordWitch – Mørk Profeti (2016) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Nordwitch - Mork Profeti - Album CoverTo stand out from this vast Death Metal populace is hard. Real hard. I usually find an endless procession of coequal black-clad Death Metal outfits of all flavors on my promo list.

All of those trying to sell the same bland soup all over again. Jockeying for position in a genre that somehow lost a lot of its luster over time. And then there are those bands that are able to just give you this trifle added spice.

NordWitch is one of them. Back in January of this year, the band already got on the RockmusicRaider radar. And a [...] Click to raid more!
