Esoctrilihum – The Telluric Ashes Of The Ö Vrth Immemorial Gods (I, Voidhanger)

The use of symphonic or orchestrated elements in Metal is something that as the years have gone by has become more prevalent. I feel that for the most part it represents a sort of mainstream accessibility giving listeners catchy hooks… Continue Reading →

Goregäng – Neon Graves (Transcending Obscurity)

Crust Punk to me represents the unifier between Metalheads and Punk Rockers. The sheer aggression of Motörhead combined with the likes of Sex Pistols or perhaps for a better example Sham 69 or Crass. It’s a nasty genre devoid of… Continue Reading →

Depraved Murder – Manifestation (Comatose)

The Asian world is no stranger to brutality, Vomit Remnants, Butcher ABC, Wormrot, Glossectomy, Gorevent, Blunt Force Trauma the list goes on. Quite frankly if you want big Slams and ferocious speed then look no further. The continent is rife… Continue Reading →

Saint Vitus – Saint Vitus (Season Of Mist)

Doom, pretty much where it all started. I’m not just talking about Black Sabbath I’m talking about a whole host of Proto-Metal bands, Blue Cheer, Vanilla Fudge, Iron Butterfly these bands utilised the essence of mass distortion. This very facet… Continue Reading →

Lice – Woe Betide You (Season Of Mist)

Black Metal has a way of worming its way into all manner of other subgenres, almost unlike any other Metal subgenre. I’ve seen Blackened Hardcore, Black Noise, Blackgaze Post-Black Metal the list is frankly endless. I think in part this… Continue Reading →

Possessed – Revelations Of Oblivion (Nuclear Blast)

Being responsible for creating a genre is a pretty big burden. People expect a lot from you, and after all why should they not? However often these bands can equally be overshadowed by more contemporary bands or at least those… Continue Reading →

Body Harvest – Parasitic Slavery (Comatose Music)

Seeing home grown talent is always pleasing, and by home grown in this case I mean country grown. There seems to be a good swelling of bands coming from the UK’s underground recently, most notably for me would be Raised… Continue Reading →

Deiphago – I, The Devil (Hells Headbangers)

Blackened Death Metal, can there be a more pure genre? A marriage of perfect proportions bringing together all that is good from the underground and merging these two scenes in seamless harmony. However I can’t say I’ve always been the… Continue Reading →

Vargrav – Reign In Supreme Darkness (Werewolf Records)

As we move ever closer to the summer months I find my adoration for Black Metal and Blackened music dwindling. Essentially I am like a Metal tortoise, in the sun I flourish with the brighter more energetic tones of Death,… Continue Reading →

Ossuaire – Premiers Chants (Sepulchral Productions)

Ever since I’ve been into Extreme Metal I’ve known about and enjoyed Black Metal, in fact one of the first Extreme Metal albums I ever purchased was Transilvanian Hunger. I’d even go as far as to say that the genre… Continue Reading →

Protector – Summon The Hordes (High Roller)

If anything is ever labelled as cult (or kvlt) it generally means I will like it. That goes for things outside of music also, for example film. I’m a huge advocate for underground horror cinema in the vein of Troma… Continue Reading →

Embludgeonment – Barn Burner (Comatose)

Recently me and my partner had an all out weekend of gigs comprising of Rap, Noise, Powerviolence, Ska, Punk and so forth, needless to say it was pretty varied. Now they say variety is the spice of life but here… Continue Reading →
