Bütcher – 666 Goats Carry My Chariot (Osmose)

Do we ever stop musically evolving? Yes and no, I think that there are certainly those who stagnate and cease to indulge in anything new in as much as even later albums from the bands they enjoy. Yet to counter… Continue Reading →

Blasphemer – The Sixth Hour (Candlelight)

Do you ever get bands that just remind you of a time? I mean I guess that’s nostalgia, but I’m talking bands that may not have had a great impact on you but were just there, lurking in the shadows…. Continue Reading →

Acid Mammoth – Under Acid Hoof (Heavy Psych)

I’m forever trying to expand my music tastes. Sometimes successfully, sometimes not. I might go on a week long binge of Avant-Garde Opera only to find one that really sticks (Check out Le Grand Macabre by György Ligeti). Alas sometimes… Continue Reading →

Svarttjern – Shame Is Just A Word (Soulseller)

It might be a new year but it’s still winter, long may it reign! For in the colder months my lust for Black Metal grows. I’m like a Corpse-painted hibernating animal who only emerges to the sound of Battles In… Continue Reading →

Vomit Fist – Omnicide (S/R)

Grindcore, the joke that it’s funny to laugh at two second songs never seems to cease to get a reaction. Indeed, due to this and being a bit of a miserable bugger I often scoffed at the genre in the… Continue Reading →

Kommando Baphomet – Blood Gospels Of Satanic Inquisition (Godz Ov War)

Often times I think that if I had a shred of musical talent or indeed had any intention of playing music then I would front a War Metal band. I can’t think of anything more visceral than the Blackened Death… Continue Reading →

Haxandraok – KI SI KIL UD DA KAR RA (Van)

Sometimes I watch bands live or hear a song or record and just think ‘what is the point in this?’ Truthfully, I find a disdain for anything that isn’t trying to at least tread some new ground, even if that… Continue Reading →

Nightbearer – Tales Of Sorcery And Death (Testimony)

Metal is nerd music, I don’t think I fully trust ‘cool’ Metalheads. That sounds stupid I know because everyone’s description of ‘cool’ differs but what I mean is most people into Metal are into other extracurricular nerd hobbies, whether that… Continue Reading →

Hellsodomy – Morbid Cult (Saturnal)

Much like any other scene or even fandom for the wider entertainment spectrum Metal is vastly unknown to outsiders. It’s strikingly comical in fact just how little people know about the genre. I mean take the somewhat recent Tool outbursts… Continue Reading →

Ofdrykkja – Gryningsvisor (Art Of Propaganda)

It can be pretty easy as a Metalhead to lose sight of just how silly the genre appears to outsiders. Songs about Satan, murder, dragons and more is perhaps a snapshot of what the non-Metalhead sees, but is it really… Continue Reading →

Into Coffin – Unconquered Abysses (Terror From Hell)

I’m not the sort of person to do things by halves, if I’m into something then I’m into it in a big way. Again, this can be a detriment as I can often times become caught up in my own… Continue Reading →

Cattle Decapitation – Death Atlas (Metal Blade)

Bands can often times linger in the background and then suddenly explode. The danger of this of course is that the bar becomes very highly set thereafter and each release becomes an awaited and anticipated hype that often times won’t… Continue Reading →
