Swedish Black Metal band Svartsyn are scheduled to release a new full length album soon, which is titled "Black Testament".

Ornias, the band's only core member, describes the new album as "A sinister mix between Destruction Of Man (2003) and Timeless Reign (2007)". The band's previous full length, titled "The True Legend" and released last year, was a re-recording of their ... [+]
Irish Black Metal band Altar of Plagues will soon be releasing their third full length album. The album will be titled "Teethed Glory and Injury", and is scheduled to be released on the 30th of April in North America through Canadian label Profound Lore Records, while the European release will be handled by Candlelight Records.
Although classified as a full length album, by today's standards it would fit more comfortably within the definition of an EP, as it features just 5 songs and clocks in at just over 23 minutes in length. By comparison, all three of their EPs to date are considerably ... [+]

Darkthrone, one of the pioneering bands of Norwegian Black Metal, have finally released "The Underground Resistance", their latest full length album and without a doubt one of the most anticipated releases of the year. At least for me, anyway. I wouldn't be telling the truth if I said that I gave a single fuck about what anyone else thinks about the album, as more than half of the "opinions" floating around on the conveniently anonymous internet are nothing more than teenage bedroom warriors, driven by that classic teenage desire to be popular, jumping on the Let's-Hate-Darkthrone bandwagon.
Varg Vikernes has recently revealed on his website that he is preparing new material that will be released under the Burzum project. It will consist of a full length album, although unlike the other albums he has produced since his release from prison in 2009, this album is set to be a purely instrumental and electronic one.
The album's title is "Sôl Austan, Mâni Vestan", which translates from Norse into English as "East of the Sun, West of the Moon". The track list for the album has already been made available, although no cover art has been published yet:
Sôl Austan ("East of the ... [+]

German Thrash legends Sodom played a key role in the early years of the Black Metal scene, influencing an endless array of bands with their distinctive brand of Teutonic Black / Thrash Metal in the early 80's together with fellow Germans Kreator and Destruction. They are still going strong to this day, and a 14th Sodom album is on the horizon, the final details of which have finally been revealed.
The album in question is titled "Epitome of Torture", and at the beginning of February the band revealed the following information on their official site:
