digital EP / single


It isn’t that strange anymore to sing in the mother tongue. French, Slavic languages, German, Scandinavian and so on; almost each single country houses bands or projects that do not use English as lyrical source of expression, yet their very own tongue. This goes as well for the Dutch language. In both the Netherlands and Flanders (the Northern part of Belgium), the Dutch speak gets used within the texts. This also goes for the new act Laster (it means ‘defamation’, ‘calumny’, ‘vilification’).


This will be a short / quick one: five-piece Karne (craving for a piece of bloody meat right now too?...), hailing from France (line-up: founding member and vocalist Eingeweide, drummer Bael, guitar players R. and H.K.A., and bassist Hraesvelg), finally release their debut full length, the first official release after the 2012-demo MMXII (extremely original, not?...).


Jayn Hanna Wissenberg started the solo-outfit Darkher after she did put her former band The Steals on hiatus. She wrote and recorded three tracks that would eventually be self-released, untitled and in an edition of 100 copies only (I guess it was via her own Faun Records-label, which also released The Steals-material), but the stuff was too good to stay so extremely limited.


When Swedish act Stench, with members of Tribulation, released their debut album In Putrescence at the end of 2010 (review: see update November 26th 2010, available in the Archive-section on Concreteweb), I wasn’t just surprised. I was truly charmed by these Swedes’ nasty Old School adventure. I think these guys toured a lot in mean time, but it took until now before they were about to release a new full length (there was an EP earlier this year).

Wigrid / Sunshine And Lollipops

Young Berlin-based label Bleeding Heart Nihilist Productions release this interesting split, intelligently entitled Split The Indifference (Geteilte Gleichgültigkeit). The first two tracks are done by Wigrid (aaaaahrgh, do they still exist?), the four others by joyfully named Sunshine And Lollipops. And it’s a rather confusing album, I think, for both projects do perform pretty distinctive (Black) Metal. But that contrast might be a statement, a convinced f*ck-off in the face of the ignorant / arrogant establishment.


Occasionally, I have a tough time finding a way to start up a review, and in those instances I often find it best to creatively re-write whatever text comes with the info sheet provide by the, here goes!


Exodus is an American thrash metal band formed in 1980 in Richmond, California. Two former band members died; Paul Baloff, Evan McCaskey. But the current members are: Steve “Zetro” Souza  | Vocals , Gary Holt | Guitar , Lee Altus | Guitar, Jack Gibson | Bass , Tom Hunting | Drums.

Sanctophoby are a very productive solo-outfit of Andrius ‘Blasphemathor’ Ataraskevicius from Lithuania, whom you might know from his former collaboration with Binan Ath or Moonrise. In the past Andrius released several demonstrational recordings, and with Sanctophoby he contributed on several splits with the likes of Sexblasphemy, Mincer Serenades and Blackhorns.

Reverorum Ib Malacht

In their early years, Reverorum Ib Malacht were part of the anti-cosmic Black Metal community in Sweden. However, in 2009 Lundin (formerly also known from Dödfödd, Ofermod or Emit) and Mikael converted to Catholicism (nobody’s perfect; no further comment). When it comes to this band specifically, well, they call their style Roman Catholic Black Metal.
