VULTURE INDUSTRIES Stranger Times

Norwegian experimentalists Vulture Industries are back with their 4th full length entitled Stranger Times and the burning question is: have they succeeded in following their previous album? 2013s release The Tower have elevated their career without a doubt and changed their path from their first two albums that were a bit too much similar to…

TAAKE Kong Vinter

Nattestid ser porten vid still remains the best ever recorded material from Hoest leader of Norwegian based black metal act known as Taake.

PARADISE LOST Medusa

Medusa could stand as a squeal to A Plague Within. More or less both records have the similar music base and idea so I guess that one could listen these two records in continuity. Both albums have significant touch from earlier PL career, but as far as I can notice Meduse is even more based…
