Ætheria Conscientia – Corrupted Pillars of Vanity

This is another great release coming out of France, aggressive and melodic in equal measures. It’s atmospheric and intriguing. I would suggest this isn’t a typical black metal offering, but it is a very welcome one.

Nad Sylvan – Spiritus Mundi

This album in general is very much different from Sylvan’s previous output, but it works, and many are already singing its praises as possibly his best solo work to date.

Odd Circus – Mantha

Although short, “Mantha” is a fantastic listen, especially for people who struggle to find time for full-length albums but want to immerse themselves in another world!

Iotunn – Access All Worlds

Iotunn – Access All Worlds

These Danes have produced a great debut album and it should stand them in good stead for future projects.

The Beast of Nod – Multiversal

The Beast of Nod – Multiversal
