Hm… This is quite an unusual release! Gonin-Ish is a Japanese band (as it’s easy to guess seeing the weird cover artwork) that exists from 1997. After the self-titled debut in 2000, “Naishikyo Sekai” is their second full-length album that was released in 2005 in Japan, but wasn’t distributed worldwide, until 2008 that “Season of Mist” decided to re-release it! Let’s see why…
When the first song “Tokoyami Kairou” began, I thought I was listening to Read more…
Valuatir is a real gem of the underground pagan folk black metal scene. They come from France and they were formed in 1997 under the name Inis Gwenva. After 2 demos they changed their name in 2007 to Valuatir and they recorded their first full-length album that was released in 2008 by the Japanese label Armageddon Records.
They play pagan black metal mixed with many folk Celtic instruments and melodies. Their founder Fëarann masters a great variety of traditional instruments, Read more…
Crimfall is a newborn band from Finland that is ready to make (or actually already did) the great step. Even though they were formed just in 2007 and released only a 3-song demo cd-r, they managed to sign a deal with Napalm Records in order to release their debut full length “As the Path Unfolds…” in February 2009!
After listening to the cd it isn’t surprising that Napalm has great expectations from this band. Their music is symphonic, Read more…
Do you remember Arathorn? Not Tolkien’s character, but the German folk black metal band that released back in 1997 the amazing debut “Niemals Krönender als Was Einst War”. After that album the 3 members of the band split up and the band seemed dead for many years! But Sköll (one of the band’s member) decided that Arathorn should be revived. So in 2004 he recorded and released a demo, and now in 2008 Arathorn’s second album, 11 years Read more…
This is the fifth album of Paysage d’Hiver the solo project of Wintherr, who is also a member of DarkSpace. He is from Switzerland, and he actually released all of his albums (8 so far, plus a demo and 2 split releases) on tape. Later he decided to re-release all of them one by one on A5 digipak versions by his own label Kunsthall Produktionen. So this is his last release, even though the tape version is from 2001!

The time for the fourth full-length album by one of the oldest Greek black metal bands has come! 3 years after their last work, that was followed by 3 split releases (2 EPs and a CD), their new work entitled “The Horned Made Flesh” is released by the Greek label Zyklon-B Productions.
Legion of Doom was founded in 1990 and they managed to make a good name, mainly in the underground scene always releasing good albums. They had Read more…
The great success of the biggest Russian folk pagan black metal band and the “name” they created inside and outside Russia lead Vic Records to re-release all their albums, except for the last album that will be re-released by Napalm Records. After the re-release of “Vozrozhdenie” and “Lepta” (initially released in 2004), now it’s the time for “Vo Slavu Velikim – For the Glory of the Great Ones” from 2005 that was released by Sound Age Productions.

Holy Blood is an Ukrainian band that is active from 1999 and they have already released 2 albums (“The Wanderer” in 2002 and “Waves are Dancing” in 2004). Their music is excellent folk black metal and their “characteristic” is that their thematology is about Christianism. They belong to a genre that is called “white”, “un-black” or “Christian” metal, which is around for many years now, with many bands supporting it. The most famous and remarkable might be, if I don’t Read more…
