Crypt Sermon – The Ruins Of Fading Light (Dark Descent)

It’s a bit of a running thing with myself that I am ‘that Death Metal guy’ Goregeous George, Slam King these are titles I’ve been accredited with by various people over the years, but there is far more to my… Continue Reading →

Visceral Disgorge – Slithering Evisceration (Agonia)

I’m having a whale of a time right now, 2019 is one of the strongest years for music in a long time. I’ve divulged into so much from the killer records of Rammstein, Tool and Equipoise to Pop records and… Continue Reading →

Horrific Demise – Excruciating Extermination (Comatose)

I’ve said it a million times on here but I love Death Metal, and 2019 is proving to be one hell of a year for the genre. I honestly think that right now there has never been a better time… Continue Reading →

Runespell – Voice Of Opprobrium (Iron Bonehead)

When I woke up this morning I was so happy, it was finally raining. I’m not sure how you readers feel about the weather but as a recent convert to preferring the winter I have to confess this change in… Continue Reading →

Devourment – Obscene Majesty (Relapse)

Music is perhaps the most powerful form of media, it can help you through hard times, give you a sense of nostalgia, help you grow. Whatever the case may be it’s undeniable that some form of music will impress you… Continue Reading →

Alcoholocaust – Necro Apocalipse Bestial (Hellprod)

Black Metal, the truest of the true, or at least in my mind anyway. The early Norwegian days of the 90’s were a breeding ground for the true and false debate. To my knowledge prior to that Metalheads simply accepted… Continue Reading →

Keys Of Orthanc – A Battle In The Dark Lands Of The Eye… (Naturmacht)

I’m going to go ahead and be completely self-indulgent for a moment. When I get to review a second release from an artist in a row it really fills me with a sense of joy. As if I’m a part… Continue Reading →

Entombed A.D. – Bowels Of Earth (Century Media)

Naturally bands have splits, crucial members leave and new pastures follow yet sometimes things become irreparable. Yet in recent times often the splits have led to renamed acts under a similar moniker. I tend to try and view this as… Continue Reading →

Necronautical – Apotheosis (Candlelight)

When you’re blessed with a strong local scene it is easy to become blasé towards smaller touring bands. I mean this with the greatest respect but you see local gigs as ‘good nights out’ as oppose to the fact that… Continue Reading →

Bastard Grave – Diorama Of Human Suffering (Pulverised)

If you’re a Metalhead and not into Death Metal then seriously what are you doing? I understand that it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but surely if you like Slayer, Kreator, Sodom or any other more extreme Thrash act then… Continue Reading →

Abysmal Lord – Exaltation Of The Infernal Cabal (Hells Headbangers)

It is often frowned upon to be a genre Nazi. I can understand why, after all it is a bit like being lectured if you happen to fall prey to such a creature. I myself am a genre Nazi however,… Continue Reading →

Strappado – Exigit Sincerae Devotionis Affectus (Comatose)

Despite the fact that I go on about how open minded I’ve become with music and my recent misdemeanours in the falser tones of Metal I still crave what is true. Of course the true/ false debate is an ever… Continue Reading →
