Dark is the season – all life is continued at Nocturnal Horde

As we are nearing fall, if not tilting into it full speed head first, as it is happening here in Denmark, where the HQ of Nocturnal Horde is residing, and by fall life fades away to die during winter, heading into spring giving new life to flower in full during summer. Here it is a bit different, as Nocturnal Horde just got a bit of new life, it’s been in limbo the last few years due to a lot of different matters, though now the site has gotten a little overhaul and has been merged with Fangs Of Necrodivine Harmony, where I’ve been making very little noise for a time.

Nocturnal Horde – Fangs Of Necrodivine Harmony will continue in the vein of the last, only featuring music that is to my liking, alas a fanzine for the bands and labels I think deserves some noise at the given time, old as new. We’ll feature news, music, reviews (still critical as always), praise, interviews, features and the occasional rant from me.

I have been writing about music online and on print since 1999, and I will continue, perhaps not always as staple and fast as back in the days, though I’ll never stop making noise!

So head over to www.nocturnalhorde.com and make some noise!

New EXODUS track ‘Salt The Wound’ featuring Kirk Hammet online

You read right, original EXODUS guitarist Kirk Hammet has returned home, at least for a track, check it out below. The Bay Area thrashers new album “Blood In Blood Out” is released by Nuclear Blast on October 10th in Europe, it marks the return of Steve “Zetro” Sousa who marked himself on the ’87 release “Pleasures Of The Flesh” and few releases onwards with EXODUS. Nothing beats “Bonded By Blood” and former frontman Paul Baloff (RIP) in my book, though Sousa is second in line, and this track doesn’t sound all bad, and the last release he participated on, “Tempo Of The Damned” from ’04 was decent!

ACHERON interview online at Voices From The Darkside

There has just been put a great interview with the great American Death Metal band Acheron and frontman Vincent Crowley online at Voices From The Darkside… Check it out, a great catch up on recent happenings and a few questions going little way back, and some about the new ripping album “Kult Des Hasses”, do check that album out as well, ACHERON and Crowley are in great shape!

SACROCURSE “Unholier Master”

It is always great to stumble across new music that gives you a solid kick in the arse… such an acquaintance is Mexican brutalist’s SACROCURSE. A lesson in violence in various forms with brutal and ripping Death Metal, did anyone say early DEICIDE combined with even more brutality, evil and a good dose of raw Black Metal. Check the guys out at their Bandcamp site where their album is streaming, released by Hell’s Headbangers Records and on vinyl by Iron Bonehead Productions, it is recommended from here!
