Dodecahedron – Kwintessens (2017) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Dodecahedron - Kwintessens - Album CoverSomething creates dark, foreboding atmospheres. Cold empty spaces filled with noisy dissonance to chill your soul with frozen hydrogen. And no doubt you need this type of a wall of sound if a record takes off with something called The Culling of the Unwanted of the Earth. Equally if the main actor goes by the name of ‘The Entity’. By Loki!

Dark and grey, a landscape of bleak winds howling through the low-lying mists. The mists that just about hide the sharp-toothed monsters within. Well, hells bells, quite a piece of work, now ain’t it? In truth Kwintessens of Dodecahedron got dissed swiftly and banned to a far corner of the RMR offices for a few months.Got hooked?

Rotting Christ – Aealo (2010) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Rotting Christ - Aealo - Album CoverTwo things hit home right away once you commence on Aealo. First, the record is intense like dark, hotly spiced chocolate consumed with ruby red wine and – second – it is not Black Metal. At least not in a proper sense. Okay, nothing new there, as even the powers that be officially called Rotting Christ Dark or Extreme Metal back in 2010.

And in truth, the Black Metal thing only (kind of) came back with the 2016 album Rituals. Despite the fact that the band hastened to state that this newest record would encompass all kinds of rituals. Weird ones and weirder ones still.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Necronomicon – Advent of the Human God (2016) – Review

Apple Music Badge Buy with Amazon!

RockmusicRaider Review - Necronomicon - Advent of the Human God - Album CoverDon’t I just love everything involving Lovecraft. A brilliant horror fiction writer in his own way back at the beginning of the last century, releasing materials that still find a large fan base to this day. Unfortunately, #metal was not born yet at this time and we had to wait some time until some bands took notice and started to write music on this subject. So, already the band name – Necronomicon – gets these guys a few brownie points to go. Also, the title of their new and fifth full length album called Advent of the Human God may be somewhat and juicily blasphemous for Cthulhu and his brethren; coming from the adepts of Great Old Ones to boot. Got hooked?
