Shodan – Death Rule over Us (Deformeathing Productions)

“The music of death, rats, bitterness and vanity” were the first words I read when researching this band from Poland. I understand they do a bit of coldwave to go with their mix of death metal and progressive elements. A… Continue Reading →

Martyr – Fists Of Iron (Gates of Hell)

I have been waiting for this for a while, and just as I start to write the tape arrives from the band themselves with the original artwork. The release under review here from Gates of Hell Records has a different,… Continue Reading →

Vassafor – To The Death (Iron Bonehead)

I really rather liked the last album by these NZ shadows, ‘Malediction’ so was pleased to get this as a review, if not a little daunted. Well they are not exactly an easy band and this little musical piece weighs… Continue Reading →

Onslaught – Generation Antichrist (AFM)

I think we often times neglect genres which we enjoy, which is strange. For example I love a bit of Thrash but I never tend to binge it, nor have I ever considered myself a massive fan despite the fact… Continue Reading →

Terminal Nation – Holocene Extinction (20 Buck Spin)

“We’re just two little girls from Little Rock.  We lived on the wrong side of the tracks” Jane Russel and Marilyn Monroe sang wonderfully in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”.  I gotta say that was the first thing that sprang to mind when I read… Continue Reading →

Oneiric Celephaïs – The Obscure Sybil (Gore House Productions)

This is the debut EP from Italian band Oneiric Celephaïs. It is quite an eclectic piece. Ostensibly “The Obscure Sybil” is a work of dingy death metal. In the background there is a riff akin to an Ephel Duath world… Continue Reading →

SepticFlesh – Infernus Sinfonica MMXIX (Season of Mist)

What I’m really gutted by, is the fact that I only watched the first 20 minutes of the video before I had to get back to doing some work and by the time I got another chance to spend a… Continue Reading →

Howling Giant / Sergeant Thunderhoof – Turned to Stone Chapter II: Masamune & Muramasa (Ripple Music)

It’s fair to say that 2020 has been a right old shit shower for live music that you can attend as opposed to watch on the computer. It’s only July as I type this review, and already emails are coming… Continue Reading →

Omitir – Ode (Loudriver Records)

Omitir (engl.: to omit) is a one-man black metal project from Porto, Portugal. This is my first encounter with them, although Gróvio, the man behind the project, has been making music for quite some time. Ode, the album at hand,… Continue Reading →

Imperial Triumphant – Alphaville (Century Media Records)

Delving into the bottom of the weekly cauldron of hate that contains items for review, this fourth album by New Yorkers, Imperial Triumphant (a three piece although you’d never guess it from the gargantuan sound they produce), stuck out like… Continue Reading →

Sepulchral Curse – Only Ashes Remain (Transcending Obscurity Records)

When you delve into death metal through the decades within the specific scenes around the world you find that each part of the world has its own take on the style and one area that has always really caught my… Continue Reading →

Heresiarch / Antediluvian – Defleshing the Serpent Infinity (Iron Bonehead)

Serpents, wolves, tanks, let’s throw them all together and hope things stick… Here we have a split EP featuring two uncompromising, underground acts, one from New Zealand and the other Canada. We get a track or 2 from each and… Continue Reading →
