FELIX HAGAN AND THE FAMILY – YOUR FANATIC / SONGS IN THE DARK

I continue to love this band’s work and heartily recommend that you get on board their crazy train to fun town. P.S. bring glitter, lots of glitter!

Bleakwood – Solypsis

This is a great album which has been put together by someone who knows what they’re doing and who is happy to break the mould and explore new ideas.

Echoes Of The Past: DENIAL OF GOD – DEATH AND THE BEYOND

An underappreciated gem from the vaults of black metal, Death and the Beyond offers escapism of the most exquisite kind.

Cobalt – Bourbon Nightmares

Whisky soaked, bluesy, feel-good and joyous, Cobalt make metal as it should be and the end result is nothing short of addictive.

Wounded Not Dead – The Battles of Horus of Edfu

I cannot recommend this record highly enough and I would rate it up there with the most acclaimed prog-death albums.

Conjurer – Mire

‘Mire’ is a seminal piece of writing and execution from Conjurer. This does not sound like a debut album, ‘Mire’ seems much more like the work of an experienced and mature band who have spent a long time crafting their art.

Funeral Chant – Funeral Chant

Funeral Chant’s demo has a lot going on within its cobwebbed and blood-stained coffin lid. Displaying a multitude of styles and a considerable amount of musicianship… The songs are generally fast paced and thunderous with catchy riffs and plenty of solos.

Degial – Predator Reign

If death metal, leather and blood (fake or not) are your jam then I would recommend giving this album a go.

Ba’al – In Gallows By Mass

I am going to call it now: Ba’al are going to be huge. This record absolutely floored me on first listen and my love for it has only grown since.

Apotelesma – Timewrought Kings

With ‘Timewrought Kings’, Apotelesma have shown themselves to be unique and masterful musicians and this is without a doubt my current top contender for album of the year.
