This time, I won’t spend my time in introducing this UK-based act; several of Sir (bleak)’s releases have been reviewed for this webzine before, so in case of interest, I would kindly ask you, dear reader, to check them out. When it comes to this specific project spawn from Peter B.’s disturbed mind, and for your convenience (or the lazy ones amongst us), I did add some links beneath…

His Haunted Humming

Even-though I will keep it short this time, I firstly would like to explain why I will review the recording called Asceticism by His Haunted Humming. It actually is the fourth (I think) release by this Polish project in an extremely short period.


Ryan Muscat is the sympathetic guy, who I sort of ‘met’ (digitally) earlier this year. He’s part of Malta’s Devil’s Breath (in the future, I will surely come back to this act), yet he also curates the M.A.D. community. This deals, at the one hand, with a fine and honest view on genres like (Dark) Ambient, Industrial, Tribal / Ritual and the likes, created for, and supported by, connoisseurs / amateurs of these genres, and related ones. At the other hand, and at the very same time, there’s a label related to this family, i.e.

Cryo Depth

The sympathetic Belarussian (or is it Antarctic) damsel (not-in-distress) Olga Kann finally released a new (full-length) album, which was inspired by Horror master H.P. Lovecraft. Olga did work on it over a period of many months during 2021 and 2022, and now it got finished under the working-title Gravedigger’s Diary: The Lurking Fear. It’s her third conceptual album (the fourth official release under the Cryo Depth moniker), consisting of no less than thirteen tracks this time.


I know that a new opus has been finished in the meantime (the compilation Forlorn), yet I sort of promised to write a review on the last ‘full’ recording, released at the very beginning of this year, called Kuumet. In Finnish Folklore,'kuumet' is the name for creatures that were believed to cause lunar eclipse.


There are a couple of reasons why I do appreciate the project Rojinski. First of all, I do appreciate the human being behind this project. The both of us seem to share some common ideas about ‘the world’, the human kind, hypocrisy, social media, the future, misanthropy; enfin, we’re not the only ones caring about our world and criticizing civilization and the human nature to destroy everything around us, just to satisfy our narrow-minded, selfish needs.

Vulcanodon Phazer

It was a great pleasure when Patrick Mytron informed me about a new release under the Vulcanodon Phazer moniker. The guy is (or was) behind some other projects that dwell within blackened spheres, but this specific project differs from those Black Metal outfits. He used to be part of Alien Tab as well, which was an instrumental Doom / Sludge / Stoner duo that shortly lived during the second half of the Nineties. And I recently found out they did reform, by the way.

Sado Rituals

A short one, yet coming from my heart…

I won’t go too deep into the label and the project this time. The label is one of the most impressive ones within the worldwide Drone / Noise / Ritual Ambient scene lately (enter this label’s name in the ‘Search’-tab to find out more reviews, if interested), and the project is the main outfit by the label-owner; a very kind person who deserves my respect and support. No further comment this time…


I know that Mister (bleak) did release some new material in the meantime, but I just feel to write down my thoughts on this digital EP, because… Well, does it matter? I just wanna do so…
