    Osaka Kaos

With the likes of Blasphemy and Beherit in town to give their all, the Cult once more proved Eternal. There’s only three…

    One Month to Annhiliation

    With four weeks remaining until DIOCLETIAN breach British shores, there have been a few revisions to the original sortie. The Bristol date has now SOLD OUT, assuredly offering a rammed night upstairs at The Gryphon. With other dates creeping close to capacity, the time to grab a ticket is now – before it’s too late.…

    A Weekend’s Grift with Darkher

    Although I’m often to be found helping out local siren DARKHER in all my usual capacities, last weekend reminded me just why the music draws me in. The final dates of an intimate candlelit tour alongside GRIFT and CARCASS OF SIGHS, it fell to Stephen and Karen of The Velvet Sheep to handle merchandise and…

    Hails to the Half Million

    HeathenStorm Productions offer hearty congratulations to Trivax for the success of their video clip from album opener Azrael (عزرائیل). An anti-authoritarian statement of intent, empowered by their experience of musical oppression in Iran and elsewhere. Energetically shot by Morbid Angle and released last July, it has already topped half a million views on YouTube. Drawing…

    Selim Lemouchi (1980 – 2014)

    Like so many others today, I mark ten years since Selim Lemouchi made his departure. The Devil’s Blood were the soundtrack to an important era of my life. A re-awakening into a vibrant sense of belonging; through years of self-discovery, hedonism and magick. Many stories remain untold from that licentious time, although many averted gazes…

    Impromptu Projections

    While most folk were down in London for the big Black Metal shindig last weekend, I was back home in slightly cosier surrounds. Supporting local prog-goth rockers, (and old friends), Dawn of Elysium at the Lending Room in Leeds. As we’ve been working together on a sci-fi short film in recent months, I prepared some…

    Remembering the Sorceress

    She was the “Sorceress of my Soul”. An affectation, drunkenly blathered in Brussels at one of the many, yet honestly few, gatherings in which we crossed paths. Alex took such purple prose in good grace, as sincerity welled up my eyes in significance of our friendship. Nine years ago, she and partner Konstantin took me…

    Compulsive Necrophilia in the UK

    The Grim Bell tolls thrice in July, as the coldest of funeral ceremonies offer contrast to Summer’s grace.
