Morne – Shadows
Crushing sludge and abject misery but an eerie sense of melody and a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel; this is the world of Morne and their new LP Shadows, the follow-up to the acclaimed Asylum. Read the full review HERE 
Mouth of the Architect – Dawning
Mouth of the Architect have been through a lot but never quite carved out the momentous album that they needed. Dawning may not exactly be that album yet but it’s a definite step in the right direction. Read the review on Metal Ireland HERE 
Scale the Summit – The Migration
The Migration is Scale the Summit’s fourth record and may be their best yet, which is really saying something after 2011’s staggering album, The Collective. Find out how by reading the review HERE 
Crown of Cerberus – With Arms Extended To Heavens 
M. Chami, also of Koufar and Disgust, has left power electronics to the side for his latest project, the utterly beautiful and enthralling Crown of Cerberus and a meandering but engrossing ambient album in With Arms Extended to the Heavens. Read HERE on CVLT Nation.
