Master – Vindictive Miscreant (Transcending Obscurity)

What came first the Death or the Black? And other age old Metal questions with variable answers that have no doubt caused a riot of arguments across internet forums over the years. Yet it is to Death Metal we look… Continue Reading →

Wurm Flesh – Excoriation Evisceration (Comatose)

How much more can I rant on about Brutal Death Metal? Probably a whole lot more, and I won’t stop until all reading this are polishing their Slam hammers and awaiting their first Waking The Cadaver gig. Any how as… Continue Reading →

Obliteration – Cenotaph Obscure (Indie)

Norway placed itself upon the metallic map with its infamous Black Metal scene, something which really took Metal to new Extreme heights. Yet beneath all that there is a rich Death Metal scene. Even Darkthrone’s debut Soulside Journey took a… Continue Reading →

Corpsessed – Impetus Of Death (Dark Descent)

After a debut the prospect of writing more material can seem daunting, was the first album a fluke? Can the band top it? And so forth. However there is also a grip of excitement, of pastures new and paths untrodden…. Continue Reading →

Corpsefucking Art – Splatterphobia (Comatose)

When you see Death Metal as humorous have you gone too far? The answer is probably yes, the prospect of slaughter, rape and cannibalism isn’t something one should joke about. But when it becomes an over-the-top barrage of insane ideas… Continue Reading →

Eternal Rot- Cadaverine (Godz Ov War)

All Metal genres are brutally saturated with material, from good to bad, for better or for worse. But with each good and each bad sub-genre there is an undying dedicated fan base. If you wanted to you could listen to… Continue Reading →

Iron Void – Excalibur (Shadow Kingdom)

Doom Metal might sound like the most earth shattering, misery stricken genre of music ever but there is a certain inoffensive quality about it. Having its roots firmly planted in the beginnings of Metal with Black Sabbath there is surely… Continue Reading →

Hate Eternal – Upon Desolate Sands (Season Of Mist)

Floridian Death Metal is arguably the most important stepping stone in Death Metal history. The pathway into the age of the extreme. Whilst the quest to be the heaviest still loomed Thrash was transforming and in its wake spawned Death… Continue Reading →
