Sound Of The Day : Nachtzeit

I didn't realise that my head needed some black metal heavily influenced by the primitive sound of the old days...but when Nachtzeit popped up on my Bandcamp search, and it was actually massively listenable, I was so god damn appreciative. The project Nachtzeit is manned by the Swede behind ambient OMBM project Lustre, and its… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Nachtzeit

Sound Of The Day : Apathie

My knowledge of German black metal isn't all that brilliant to be honest, but I was still a bit taken aback that it's taken until 2017 for me to listen to Apathie, an astoundingly solid project that formed in Oberlausitz way back in 2009. Better late than never though, right? Right. I was on Bandcamp… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Apathie

Rimfrost At Vicious Rock Festival

Sound Of The Day : Loth

I would like to apologise for the lack of new Black Metal recently.

It has been quite nice actually though, as it was a good while since I properly listened to… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Loth

Sound Of The Day : Lindemann

I am a long-term fan of Rammstein, and believe frontman Till Lindemann is one of the best vocalists and lyricists out there. So, when I discovered, the other night, that he had a side project Lindemann, I was on it like rot latches onto a corpse. I was immediately obsessed with the album he's released… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Lindemann

Metalhead – Now Available With English Subtitles

If you are a long-term follower of Wyrd Words & Effigies, you will remember an interview I did with Icelandic director Ragnar Bragason where we talked about his groundbreaking movie Metalhead (Málmhaus). Well, some great news came my way today, and that is Metalhead is now available on DVD and BluRay with English subtitles. I've… Continue reading Metalhead – Now Available With English Subtitles
