I won’t spend my time on introducing both of these solo-outfits. For Moloch you can expect some more reviews in a near future, but recently I wrote (+ updated) some others: Verwüstung, Abstrakter Wald, Somewhere On The Forgotten Paths, Die Isolation, or the split with Voidstar. For more info about this Ukrainian outfit, check these out.

GoatChrist is the name for a very young outfit by a very young guy (born during the second half of the nineties) who calls himself Dominator Xul’Ahabra. This guy did perform or still performs under quite some other monikers in bands and solo-projects such as Rancid Entity, Lord Andras / Mundus or Mors Voluntaria a.o. With GoatChrist, he did release a handful of smaller recordings, amongst which The Epic Tragedy Of The Cult Of Enlil, which was digitally released in January 2015.
Anoxia, not the ‘disease” but the Metal-group, are a band from Mexico with members involved with e.g. Remains (on March 4th 2016 I did upload the review for their album Evoking Darkness), Dew Of Nothing or Cryptogeny.
Actually, this new release by Italian project Ensomhet 777, an outfit of Riccardo’19.84’ Z., was released in 2014 via !fanculo!, but I recently did receive a tape-version of that album, done via mighty UK-based Locust Amber Records. And just like acts such as Vinterriket, Moloch or Sieghetnar, this release does not deal with Black Metal this time, yet with floating sounds of mis(t)ery…
Locust Amber Records focus on tape releases especially, but there are some vinyl releases too that the audience gets offered by this label. All together: thank you! Also parent label Legs Akimbo and sister-label Skullhouse release quite some stuff on vinyl. Some have been reviewed recently, some others are to follow in a very near future. Just enter the label’s name(s) in the ‘search’-tab and you’ll find out…
One of the many projects with Mark Riddick is Fetid Zombie. In a very near future I will write and upload a review on the Sepulchral Voices LP, which includes four bands / projects, amongst which Fetid Zombie. But that’s for one of the next days / weeks.
Like many Moloch-releases (a couple of hundreds), Verwüstung too has been re-released, re-re-released and re-re-re-rereleasedreleasedrereleased several times before. Actually, I wrote a review for this specific album, one of the CD-editions, for the re-release on Hidden Marly Production – see update June 7th 2015.
Singapore-based act Battlestorm, with Nocturnized members (PS: soon I will come back to a split-LP which includes Nocturnized), were formed about a decade ago. After some demos and a split with Damned Eternal, the band released the full length Demonic Incursion via Japanese Deathrash Armageddon, which sort of was a (relative) break-through for the band on international scale.
Bokluk are a Spanish Death Metal formation, nowadays consisting of Alex (vocals), Corey (drums), Iago (bass, vocals) and Tukas (guitars, as well as recording, mix and mastering).
The Black Metal oriented sub-label of Legs Akimbo, Locust Amber Records, focuses on tape-releases especially, and one of them is the split-tape Odyssey Of The Twelfth Talisman, not the cartoon, yet a recording done by London-based acts Dgorath and Dark Ritual. Both of them are quite young bands that recorded their material in 2014 and 2015.
