Filthy Music Review Round-up - 'Judas Priest/Fallujah/Ovaryrot/Sabaton/Grave Digger'

Due to the fact things have been hectic, to say the least, at my end over the last few weeks, I have acquired a larger than usual backlog of reviews. So, instead of skipping some that I would usually like to cover, I am going to do a mini-review round-up, so to speak, of some new releases and a couple of recent releases. Anyway, there’s a nice mix covered, so read on my filthy friends. Jude.

Gnosis of the Witch - Dauðr Burðr Þrysvar 12” MLP

Iron Bonehead Productions

Review by Trevor Proctor

Gnosis of the Witch is a US based atmospheric black metal band steeped in a degree of mysticism; it consists of two members - Swartadauþaz who plays drums along with Niðafjöll who looks after guitar, bass, vocals and ambience. Initially formed in 2013 their debut release was Rún Af Inn Auðr, first released in June 2013 on digital platforms and recently released on cassette via the Darker Than Black label - the cassette release was also reviewed on The Lair of Filth website by Jude Felton, so give it a read for some further info on this seriously good band.

Review - 'Cemetery Fog: Towards the Gates'

Cemetery Fog - Towards the Gates (12” MLP) (2014)

Iron Bonehead Productions 1st August 2014

Review by Trevor Proctor

Finland’s Cemetery Fog is a two piece group that plays an original blend of warped, blackened doom with death metal influences – in March of this year I had the pleasure of reviewing their demo “Shadows from the Cemetery”. This was released in a limited quantity of 300 on cassette by Iron Bonehead Productions, who had heard the self-released demo and decided to give this extremely talented band an official, higher profile release.
