Cruachan Blood on the Black Robe
Cruachan latest effort, taken as a whole body of work will be considered as kind of aimless and messy by many, probably...but at the same time it boasts some of the greatest tunes ever in Celtic-Pagan metal scene ! They simply rule.rSongs like An Bean Sidhe, the title track or The Voyage Of Bran feature thoughtful, frenzy-jolly!!! Celtic melodies, amazing female vocals, outstanding riffs , drumming and more. Great production of the record has made all this clearly audible. rOne of the interesting features of the album is the length of songs..while their average length is about 6 minutes, many of them sound noticably EPIC! Highly diverse nat

Nargaroth Spectral Visions of Mental Warfare
Nargaroth's latest release is an attemp to create a mysteriously dark sonic atmosphere, incorporating sounds of nature, mideveal violon and cello composition (first and forth track), fuzzy vibe of Burzum's Filosofem(second track), dark ambient, oceanic soundcapes (third track) which leads to a transitional 2-minute interelude, a shortened version of the opning track, leading to one of the longest songs on this album ( a completely electronic-laden filler that is meaninglessly unreasonable ) I, myself, try to ignore the previous song because right after that comes 2 of the most emotional black metal tunes ever made , aesthetically consisten

Pantheist Pantheist
Totally different from whatever this band ever done and aesthetically more consistent than previuos releasaes.Thematically, Pantheist steps into a romantically somber realm which simultaneously sounds mysterious and melancholic.There's no growl or harsh vocals ,only soft, mournful clean singing.Like "Journey Through The Lands Unknown", each song is consisted of many diverse parts while keeping a highly clear proportionality, though it's less experimental than aforesaid record.Personally, I like Journey Through The lands Unknown by far better, nevertheless Pantheist self-tite surely will be part of my musical life for long.

Lake of Tears Illwill
Those who already have this album but haven't give it a listen ...can be divided in 2 groups! Those who can't refrain from feeling nostalgic after Forever Autumn apocalyptic period and the rest who had no problem with The Neonai-Era.Second group will be quite satisfied and my homesick fellas shouldn't be greedy at all !!!

Most of the album is consisted of heavy metal up-beat tunes or Green Dayish(yeah!!!) riff-based songs like"Parasites"and melodic trashy grooves like " The Hating" or "U.N.S.A.N.E".
Here are tracks that left an impression on me :

Amaranthine Trampler As The Colour Of Love Flows
The only album by one-man funeral doom band Amaranthine Trampler is another journey through the lands of melancholy, death and loneliness but with an approach which in some tracks can be called utterly unique...rfans of Warning's Watching From A Distance & Ataraxie's Slow Transcending Agony will like it in spite of being totally different !

Sarcofago The Laws of Scourge
This record stands out from any other Sarcofago's releases..matured lyrical themes, amazingly complex time signatures, precisely written basslines, perfect production, mind-blowing guitar solos and a lot more ....this is suggested to all Extreme Black-thrash-death-technical metal fans.
