The debut album from Canada's The Black Sorcery is a truly satanic sounding experience. From the beginning of the album, "Ancient Dialects Of Wind", you're introduced to vocals from the very depths of hell. The thing that defines this album is its out of this world guttural growns of unrelenting madness. This is a record so brutal that it will make your insides hurt. Don't believe me? Listen to "Seizures" and you'll see what I mean.

This album isn't for the faint of heart. You honestly feel like you need to take a break halfway through from how overwhelming this can be if you're not used to this sort of onslaught. This is the sound of Lovecraftian terror made real. It's not a terribly long album but by the end you'll feel as if you just ran a marathon with bare feet over broken glass. Its the sonic equivalent of drinking boiling hot bleach.

The Black Sorcery manages to make a lot of death metal sound like pop rock by comparison. I can't remember the last time I heard something so unholy yet so oddly pleasing. It's disgusting and exhausting and at the same time leaves you wanting more. Fans of the unnaturally sick will love this abomination of sound.

Band: Seigmen
Album title: Enola
Release date: 13 April 2015
Label: Indie Recordings

Bittersweet melancholy, thy name is Seigmen. There is no darkness without light, no hatred without love and no grief without happiness; it's all just a liquid symbiosis. Our lives revolve around passing through them and that is just what Enola's story is about. A nothing less than brilliant comeback by the oh so missed, but never forgotten Norwegians, delivers ten songs which go beyond hypnotizing with a slightly modern tone, giving them a special flavour. Seigmen are not a static form of melancholy, they are forever changing, exploring the variety of it. Enola will make your deepest wounds bleed again, but it will also help to stop the bleeding. It will open your old wounds and awoke your deepest, most jet-black, buried feelings. But it will also help you process them. All you need is to let go; free your mind of the chains of everyday worries and let them penetrate your mind and intoxicate your bloodstream until you reach the point, where your mind dissociates from your body and liberates itself.
