House of Atreus – Orations EP

The universe is a strange thing. Case and point, a few weeks ago I was randomly sitting around and suddenly found myself thinking “I wonder what’s going on with House of Atreus?”.  They released two damn fine albums (2015s The Spear and the Ichor That Follows and 2018s From the Madness of Ixion), then sort […]

Messe Mortuaire – Nocturnal Demonic Visitation 12” MLP

“That’s a nasty piece of work, sir.” Indeed, it is Death Metal, primitive and crawling on its bloodied knuckles, a foaming Satanic beast. Here I have Messe Mortuaire, a continuation of France’s Sepulchral; the country’s first Death Metal band who have unleashed their debut EP under their new moniker of Messe Mortuaire and goddammit I […]

Furis Ignis – Turm 12” MLP/MCD

One-man bands are sometimes a hit-or-miss affair. I often picture one dude frantically recording everything at the same time, which I know isn’t true (looking at Burzum). Turm is a singular affair conceived by Tyrst and I have got to say it’s not disappointing at all. This has a classic Black Metal feel, and from […]

Varathron/Ungod – Apocalyptic Mysticism split 7” EP

When I saw that these two bands were doing this 2 song split, my ears perked up. The early nineties are considered the golden years of Black Metal with so many bands emerging from the pits of hell to either reign or fall. nd these 2 bands don’t need an introduction because they are titans […]

Runespell – Sentinels of Time EP

Not even a year after releasing the solid Verses of Regicide album, Aussie musician, ‘Nightwolf’ and his prolific project Runespell is back with a fine EP. Sentinels of Time is with a 4 song, half-hour or so of 90s second wave-inspired black metal that continues the influences that range from Abigor, Satyricon, Immortal, and such […]

Abythic- Eden Of The Doomed EP

Not to sound like a total dick, but I wasn’t really expecting something so good when I snagged the new EP, Eden of the Doomed, from Germany’s Abythic. Not to say that I thought they weren’t a good band, but if I’m being candid, my only experience with the group was hearing 2019’s Conjuring the […]

Runespell – Verses In Regicide

Hot on the heels of solid, recent, and upcoming majestic, melodic, second wave black metal homages like Warmoon Lord, Arna, Sinira, fellow one man project, Winter Eternal, Kjeld, Wooden Throne and such, comes prolific lone Aussie ‘Nightwolf’ (also in Blood Stronghold and Eternum) and his 5th releases in as many years. And while it’s my […]

Hulder – Godslastering: Hymns of a Forlorn Peasantry

Hulder? I don’t even know her… Now that I have that joke out of the way and you’re recovering from squirting vodka through your nose (burns, doesn’t it), let’s talk about BM. USBM, to be specific. I purchased and somewhat recently finished reading Decibel’s USBM book. To my dismay, the book itself was not about […]

Beast of Revelation – The Ancient Ritual of Death

It’s funny how life is with its odd and overall meaningless coincidences. Just recently, I reviewed Unhumanized, the latest release from Cianide, and in that review I had made the reference, for the unfamiliar, of imagining Bob Bagchus (Asphyx, Soulburn, Grand Supreme Blood Court), John McEntee (Incantation, Funerus), and Paul Speckmann (Master) coming together in […]

House of Atreus – From the Madness of Ixion

“Tis the times’ plague, when madmen lead the blind.” ― William Shakespeare, King Lear Boy, who knew Shakespeare was a prophet? But I digress. After one self released EP, and a killer debut album, The Spear and the Ichor that Follows in 2015 on Dark Descent Records, Minnesota’s House of Atreus signed with Iron Bonehead Productions and […]

Bölzer – Hero

Two months ago the Zurich, Switzerland duo Bölzer achieved somewhat of a Herculean task when they premiered the first advance track from their debut full-length “Hero”’. For a few weeks prior the storied halls of heavy metal social media had been in a tizzy over the first material to surface from Metallica’s imminent new album and […]

Asphodelus – Dying Beauty & the Silent Sky EP

The early to mid ’90s produced a seemingly endless supply of excellent death/doom demos and EPs from bands that quickly disappeared or mellowed out. Anyone who was turned off by Sweet X-Rated Nothings, ever ended up on a not-so-user-friendly website looking for a clip of “Frozen Feeling,” or longs for a Garden of Silence reunion […]

Infernal Curse – Apocalipsis

Infernal Curse is charred, bottomless pit dwelling black/death metal coming from Argentina.  Over the years I’ve notice that South America tends to produce bands that deliver highly concentrated versions of their chosen metal genre and its accompanying aesthetic traits.  On Apocalipsis the catholic cathedral reverb is cranked a few notches past the usual.  Every touchstone […]

Ripping Death – Tales of the Ripper EP

It seems as of late, that be it fate or just coincidence, I seem be listening to quite a few EP’s and with this, Tales of the Ripper the new demo from Ripping Death, adds to my words of wisdom here at Teeth of the Divine. Ripping Death, consists of members from Italy and Spain, […]

Altarage – NIHL

Much like death metal’s brutality arms race in the ‘90s, there now seems to be one to become the most inhuman. Spain’s Altarage is one of the latest contenders in this far-flung arena. Their MMXV demo from last March was quickly picked up and released on cassette by Sol y Nieve and 7” by Iron […]

Autokrator – Autokrator

Industrial metal has had a tough time maintaining its integrity as a genre over the years. It entered the ‘90s pissed and oppressive, but left them skipping and holding hands with nu metal. Remember Pitchshifter? Their career was basically like a microcosm of the genre as a whole. A few experimental black metal acts like […]

Nuclear Perversions – Desolation Rituals

I have a dream. A dream that it’s 1985. Vladimir Putin decapitates Mikhail Gorbechev with a halberd while riding a chariot pulled by two bears which proceed to fight each other to eat the former leaders corpse on state controlled television. He declares himself the new totalitarian leader over Russia. The Putinator formally dedicates the […]

Cult of Fire – मृत्यु का तापसी अनुध्यान

Ever hear of a sophomore slump? Cult of Fire most certainly does not believe in them. This Czech semi-supergroup composed of Lykathea Aflame, Maniac Butcher, Dark Storm, and Death Karma members came out of nowhere last year with their passionate debut full-length, Triumvirát (if you had heard their 2011 self-released EP prior to that, +666 […]

Bölzer – Aura EP

German, analog-only label, Iron Bonehead Productions, is currently on quite a winning streak with recent and upcoming releases from Unaussprechlichen Kulten, ZOM, Death Karma, Heretic Cult Redeemer, and Beyond (DE), just to name a few. But, one of the most interesting of them all is this 3-song debut EP from Swiss two-piece, Bölzer. Their inconspicuous […]
