Demonomancy
Throne Of Demonic Proselytism LP
Nuclear War Now Productions

Demonomancy is among the very few bands who secured a release through NWN! the traditional way; that is, by sending a copy of their excellent self-released demo, "Bearers of Black Arts." Demonomancy hail from the occult depths of Rome and exist to desecrate and dismantle Italy's holy infrastructure. Performing and recording as a three-piece, Demonomancy are maniacal in their intentions, yet calculated in their approach. They play primitive Black Metal in the vein of Beherit, Archgoat, and Demoncy, but with a sensitivity to production and precision that is uncharacteristic of most bands who tread these paths. No guitar solos or extraneous influences are utilized to distract the listener. Instead, the band relies solely upon its songwriting which highlights the band's seamless fusing of cacophonous riffs and unpredictable changes in tempo. The production on this EP suits the work perfectly. All of the instruments are distinguishable and mixed according to the need of the song as a whole. The final result is a diabolical festival of ritualistic violence and blasphemy.

Faustcoven
Hellfire And Funeral Bells LP
Nuclear War Now Productions

The release schedule of Norway's Faustcoven is as slow and deliberate as the band's music. It has been nearly four years since the last Faustcoven album, but with this new record, "Hellfire and Funeral Bells," Faustcoven demonstrate the virtues of a band taking time with its craft. This album, like all of Faustcoven's work, is steeped in a classic doom sound, but exhibits a recognition and infusion of more modern and extreme forms of metal as well. For these reasons, Faustcoven has, through the years, commanded the attention of an extremely dedicated and fanatical core of admirers even though the band has, for the most part, been under the radar of the scene at large. Since its inception, Faustcoven has been a nightmarish projection of the mind of Gunnar Hansen -- the only consistent member of Faustcoven. For recording purposes, Hansen is joined by Johnny Tombthrasher on drums. Yet despite the fact that it was executed by just two individuals, the sound on "Hellfire and Funeral Bells" is massive. Hansen's songwriting is unparalleled within this style of doom metal. Every riff is crafted to contribute to the movement of the song as a whole. Never static, the tracks evolve and build as the riffs are seamlessly merged into place within the horrifying soundscapes. Hansen has been consistently refining and focusing his approach with every new album and release. This new album is very likely the most succcesful effort Faustcoven has yet put forth.

Ignivomous
Contragenesis LP
Nuclear War Now Productions

Ignivomous was among the first of many recent bands to breathe cold morbid breath into the decrepit form of dark and brooding Death Metal. Reinvigorating the style of metal perfected over a decade earlier by the likes of Incantation and Immolation is a task the band has not taken lightly. Rote mimicry was never the path chosen by Ignivomous on their previous releases and with their second album, "Contragenesis," the band pushes even further and still manages to expand the boundaries of their sound. What separates Ignivomous from their peers is the intuitive nature of the songwriting. As with so many classic albums, intuition is the driving force behind "Contragenesis." The band demonstrates that it can unfold the pieces of each song in such a way that the listener is drawn completely into the work. Every turn and transition is carefully sculpted so that the detail is preserved while still moving the entirety of the composition forward toward its zenith. This attention to detail forces the listener to notice the micro-elements and simultaneously behold the overarching structure. Ignivomous prove that they have mastered the ability of imbuing this highly technical Death Metal with a certain elasticity that renders the songs listenable and engaging. The ferocity of the songs is never degraded and the parts are flexible enough to prevent the sterility that is all too common in technical music. The interplay between the two guitars is largely responsible for this effect as is the organic and unaffected production of the album. Radical tempo shifts and unpredictable melodies also enhance the mystique of Ignivomous' music. While some bands look to include new instruments or samples or some other novel gimmick to alter their sound, Ignivomous never change the ingredients of their work. Relying upon only the most fundamental and traditional elements of Death Metal, Ignivomous are masters of incorporating subtle, intuitive alterations within the formula that constantly reinvent the work. By the end of "Contragenesis" the image that Ignivomous create is one of pure apocalyptic nihilism. A burned out world consumed by the void of its own collapsed spiritual infrastructure. The closing track in particular, entitled "The Last Cadence to Bloodshed," leaves the listener alone and spiritless in an empty world. To augment the expression of desolation within the music, Ignivomous called upon the inimitable TK to conjure similarly abject visual imagery for the album. The combined result is a Death Metal masterpiece, the power of which will be felt for years to come.

Katechon
Man God Giant LP
Nuclear War Now Productions

The word "katechon" refers to the restraining force or entity tethering the Antichrist, and thus maintaining equipoise between existence and annihilation. Sonically and conceptually, Katechon exhibits the control, power, and restraint associated with the theological concept giving rise to the band's name. At this point in the lineage of extreme metal, the lines between the various subgenres are nearly indistinguishably blurred. Bands emerging at this stage are almost certainly influenced by Black, Death, and Thrash metal in relatively equal parts in addition to drawing influence from genres outside the traditional spectrum of metal. This amorphous state, has led many bands to retreat into strict rehashing of formulaic retro approaches. Katechon, however, embraces the entropic merging of stylistic and aesthetic projections from the various branches of the genre and beyond. Under scrutiny since the release of its demo last year, Norway's Katechon now presents its debut full-length recording. "Man, God, Giant" reinforces the sound presented on Katechon's previous recordings*, but features superb production that amplifies the impact of the tracks. Each of the three songs featured on the demo is reworked and incorporated into the album. Katechon's sound is an amalgamation of Black, Death, and Thrash metal, but played with a precision and authenticity that avoids dilution. Instead the result is frenetic and possessed, devoid of theatrics and self-indulgent virtuosity, and features highly proficient and intricate songwriting executed with precision. With philosophically oriented lyrics and adorned with an esoteric and surreal visual aesthetic, "Man, God, Giant" presents a unique vision for the future direction of metal in which an equilibrium must be maintained between rote rehashing of past trends and the indiscriminate collision of clashing styles and sounds. Katechon rests perfectly at this equilibrium point, holding at bay the forces of dissolution.


Tracklist:
1. Endless Funeral 02:55
2. Spring of Man 02:15
3. Black Rain / Ungodly Rituals 05:26
4. Liquid Decadence 03:09
5. Transition 03:12
6. Man, God, Giant 03:20
7. Endgames 04:05
8. Deathly Treasures 02:30
9. Unbeing 02:21
10. Beautiful Desolation 05:24

Sacriphyx
The Western Front LP
Nuclear War Now Productions

It is rare that a band lives up to the promise of its initial recordings by the time it releases a debut LP. A band that releases a well-conceived demo or EP and immediately becomes engulfed in hype is often doomed to fail. Sacriphyx are one of those few bands for which the debut LP is represents both a continuation of the trajectory laid out in the band's previous recordings and also a substantial step forward. Some years ago, NWN! received the "Lone Pine" demo CDr from the band. While unsolicited demos are usually disregarded, Sacriphyx became something of an obsession for NWN! due to the band's unique, yet traditional, approach to metal. Sacriphyx have rushed nothing in arriving at the release of "The Western Front." Since the 2007 release of the demo, Sacriphyx have moved at a deliberate pace having released only one split EP and a split 12" during the intervening years. (All of these tracks are also collected on the recently released self-titled compilation CD.) Conceptually, Sacriphyx remain focused upon the intricate dynamics of war. While war is an omnipresent topic within metal, it is usually described in a simplistic manner loaded with juvenile glorification. Sacriphyx take a different thematic and sonic approach. While certainly not dealing with the subject matter in an "intellectual" or "political" context, they instead capture the elemental aspects of combat: tragedy, valor, triumph and despair. The band's distinctive music perfectly suits the imagery Sacriphyx projects. The band draws upon myriad styles and influences and "The Western Front" presents a broad array of sounds all drawn into the overall fabric of the album. Most notably, Sacriphyx call upon the legacy of Greek Black Metal, but recast the occult Hellenic sound in the service of the band's melancholy and militaristic narrative quality. One also finds in the songs passages of forlorn doom and frantic black and death metal often intertwined with a traditional heavy metal sensibility. Sacriphyx is comparable to Arghoslent in its capacity to channel heavy metal influences through the lens of more extreme metal. The guitar work is especially integral to the songwriting as Sacriphyx adorns its epic tracks with lilting guitar solos. Even in the faster and more intense passages, Sacriphyx lays perfectly suited solos across the foundation of the songs. There truly is no band operating in the same territory as Sacriphyx at this time. Though fans were forced to wait for years for this anticipated debut, few, if any, will find anything remotely disappointing in it.
