Perversor – Umbravorous (Pulverised)

Either you understand what trve Metal is or not. At least that is what I have come to understand over the years, explaining to people the difference between false and trve can often be painstaking. However at the same time… Continue Reading →

Misery Index – Rituals Of Power (Season Of Mist)

Grindcore, the ultimate amalgamation of both Metal and Punk. Spawned from a time when Thrash was becoming more accepted by Punks and the likes of Discharge and Crass were becoming more tolerated by Metalheads. For this reason Grindcore to me… Continue Reading →

Mystifier – Protogoni Mavri Magiki Dynasteia (Season Of Mist)

Brazil to me represents the epicentre of a true Metal fan, I don’t so much mean true in the sense of a ‘death to false Metal’ manner but rather true in terms of one whom has taken their time to… Continue Reading →

Lucifera – La Caceria De Brujas (Dunkelheit Produktionen)

Thrash Metal is pretty much the key to all things Metal as far as I can see it. That isn’t to say that anything prior meant nothing but what I mean is that Thrash really opened the door. We may… Continue Reading →

In Shadows And Dust – Enlightened By Darkness (Redefining Darkness)

At the beginnings of Black Metal, most specifically within the Norwegian lands the collaboration of both Black and Death Metal would likely be seen as drastically abhorrent despite several bands in the scene showing a close allegiance to the genre… Continue Reading →

Opprobrium – The Fallen Entities (High Roller)

If you’re anything like me then you’ll enjoy the history of genres and music in general. I love a good discussion on the sort of ‘what came first’ theories, where do genres begin? Why the sudden leap? For example look… Continue Reading →

Funereal Presence – Achatius (Sepulchral Voice)

Can genres ever really be reborn? I certainly believe so, after all I am a firm believer that genres never really die, there will always be someone out there drawing at least a small influence from a whole plethora of… Continue Reading →

Asphodelus – Stygian Dreams (Terror From Hell)

Doom Metal, arguably the oldest of all the Metal genres. If you look back even before Black Sabbath there is a wide range of Proto-Metal bands in the vein of Blue Cheer and Vanilla Fudge touching upon the beginnings of… Continue Reading →

Electrocution – Psychonolatry (Goregorecords)

Genre flooding is nothing new, since the very dawn of recorded music and likely even prior there has been surges and waves of certain styles pummelling the eardrums of listeners like an audible tsunami. Yet the prevalence of this is… Continue Reading →

Finis Omnivm – Cercle (S/R)

Bands that are seen as genre-defying naturally tend to stick in our minds. For me as a complete genre Nazi I strangely adore when bands defy being put into a box because it gives me as a reviewer so much… Continue Reading →

Agrypnie – Grenzænger / Pavor Nocturnus (Supreme Chaos Records)

The term Post in music, for example Post-Punk, has developed greatly over the years. It’s a strange genre to try and describe but if you know, you know. Think of Post as an often dystopian, modernist or perhaps even experimental… Continue Reading →

Ossuarium – Living Tomb (20 Buck Spin)

Death Metal is by the very nature of its name linked to all things repugnant. Yet does this always have to come from cascading slasher style shock value? Arguably no, the genre may have been well rounded and defined by… Continue Reading →
