Wormed – Metaportal (Season Of Mist)

Technical Death Metal has a strange history some love it, others hate it. It’s early days were steeped in impressive musicianship which left a lot of people bewildered, the likes of Atheist, Cynic and Death being among the biggest driving… Continue Reading →

Death SS – Rock ‘N’ Roll Armageddon (High Roller)

Things I’ve always loved in music are shock, cheese and the utterly weird, from the early days of Alice Cooper and Arthur Brown to the easy listening Glam style of Sweet, Slade and Wizzard, two of which had cracking Christmas… Continue Reading →

Hex – God Has No Name (Transcending Obscurity)

Death Doom is a genre which has evolved over the years and always had a place in Death Metal’s overall history, just look back to Severed Survival the classic album by Autopsy. It has gone on to form the basis… Continue Reading →

Arkhaaik – *dʰg̑ʰm̥tós (Iron Bonehead)

Death Metal has splintered into sub-genres perhaps more than any other genre of Metal and splintered so far that there becomes a huge differentiation between the likes of Slam, Old School and Melodic just to give a few examples. It… Continue Reading →

Memoriam – Requiem For Mankind (Nuclear Blast)

Some bands are so legendary that they transcend above and beyond the call of duty. I mean this in as much as they form into an uncontrollable force that cannot be tainted. Just look at Led Zeppelin or Queen, bands… Continue Reading →

Daemoni – Black Tyrant (Goathorned Productions)

Black Metal’s worldwide appeal has touched all four corners of the world, to many I feel that the genre represents a voice. It was the genre that gave birth to the elite movement separating the ‘trve’ from the ‘false’. Long… Continue Reading →

Enthroned – Cold Black Suns (Season Of Mist)

Fetid – Steeping Corporeal Mess (20 Buck Spin)

I’ve said it before but it’s worth reiterating, I love Death Metal and the horror that comes with it. Fun fact, when I was a teenager I saved up all my pocket money for a few weeks just so I… Continue Reading →

Deathspell Omega – The Furnaces Of Palingenesia (Norma Evangelium Diaboli)

Despite the fact that I clearly love Death Metal I do have a great admiration for Extreme Metals more Satanic cousin Black Metal. In fact Darkthrone were very much responsible for getting me into what could be described as ‘Trve… Continue Reading →

Fulci – Tropical Sun (Time To Kill Records)

As well as being a huge music nerd I am equally a massive fan of cinema, I even went as far as to study media at college, and no not as a doss but rather with genuine interest. The notions… Continue Reading →

Krypts – Cadaver Circulation (Dark Descent)

I think the reason that I love Death Metal so very much is because of how eclectic it is. The lyrical themes that are covered are broad and enticing, and the musicianship equally so. If you want to take the… Continue Reading →
