It can sometimes be heard that atmosphere is a cheap substitute for Extreme Metal. Quite frankly, this idea misses the point of music in quite a large way. Whilst it leaves the opportunity for some truly interesting takes on the genre to one side in favour of a lot of the same. Every once in a while a band like Winter Nights comes around. Described to be similar to bands like Amon Amarth and Kalmah and Behemoth, again this is just limiting. There...

In the crossroads of extreme metal, Black Metal intersects with Death Metal in sometimes obvious, sometimes obscure ways. Bands that generate that fanbase can be hard to describe. With a rough edged Melodic Death Metal band like God Dethroned there is almost a blueprint. Whilst Blackened Death Metal Bands make it incredibly clear. Limos, a recent act from Finland, are completely within this area.

Despite the clear similarity to God Dethroned it wo...

Originally formed by Hammer Horde drummer Jayson Cessna and guitarist Derik Smith and conceived of as a way to explore different pastures to their usual Viking stylings; out of it came Astralborne, self-releasing their album Eternity’s End back in 2019 but quickly snapped up for an international re-release by Prosthetic Records. 

Lyrically the album deals centrally with the theme of death and offshoots of this, opening with the tolling of funeral...

Over the course of a career, few bands can achieve such a status wherein they become utterly synonymous with the genre they exist within. Any conversation about melodic death metal will consistently bring up a few bands: some pioneers, some who elevated the genre, and some who dominated it – but without a doubt, no discussion about melodic death metal would be complete without the inclusion of Michigan legends The Black Dahlia Murder. Almost two...

Despite the visual and audible contrasts between melodic death metal, beatdown and hardcore, it seems throughout the past several years a genre boasting a fusion of the stylings has become increasingly popular within the contemporary alternative scene. One such act who have burst though the ribcage of the scene is Climate Of Fear, a hardcore collective composed of members of Desolated, Cold Hard Truth and World Truth. Despite it’s members hailing...

Despite many countries producing many Melodic Metal or Melodic Death Metal bands, there will always be a certain something to be said for Scandinavian Melodeath. Finland’s Omnium Gatherum have certainly got the experience of 20+ years under their belt and this being their eighth album and first since they signed with Century Media Records after the success of 2016’s Grey Heavens, the band must be excited and easily have reason to be.

The Burning C...

You would be a fool to believe that At The Gates aren’t one of the most influential acts within the global melodic death metal scene. The group successfully cemented their importance to such a scene in 1995 with the masterpiece that was Slaughter Of The Soul, a record that popularized the rising Gothenburg sound and spawned countless imitations that attempted to recreate and mirror such an iconic and landmark release. Despite it’s colossal succes...
