RockmusicRaider Review - Forteresse - Thèmes pour la Rébellion - Album CoverI am usually not all too impressed by the scratchy, noisy, lo-fi Black Metal concoctions most of the underground bands liked to throw at us back in time. Their light has gradually been waning over time, but you still got a considerable community still today: The hidden-in-the-woods outfits, only allowing a handful of copies to reach the world of us unworthy earthlings.

And some of them delivering on ancient cassette tape sound support only still today. Forsooth! Kind of eclectic, these days, when you gotta hunt around the attic to find a player. If you own one still at all, that is. Most of these outfits still live by their old code and modus operandi, actually performing a ritual – black mass – more than offering music to the informed #metal public.Got hooked?

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

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?
