Kassad – Faces Turn Away (Hypnotic Dirge)

Kassad – Faces Turn Away (Hypnotic Dirge)

At last some proper grown up black metal from the UK. No clown-shoes and corpse paint in evidence here and it’s a welcome relief as I seem to have been hearing too much of that sort of stuff lately. It’s like the old teenagers in.. Read More
Khost – Governance (Cold Spring)

Khost – Governance (Cold Spring)

Noise mangling duo Khost seem to be on a roll at the moment. They are playing no shortage of shows which is where I first unsuspectingly caught them and this is their sixth release since 2014. Last encountered being deconstructed by Godflesh and sharing their.. Read More
Inexorable – Sea Of Dead Consciousness (Godz Ov War)

Inexorable – Sea Of Dead Consciousness (Godz Ov War)

This is the third of 3 EP’s released by Inexorable between 2008 and 2015 and originally came out via Unholy Prophecies on limited- edition cassette with just 200 copies. Obviously Polish label Godz Ov War found the duo from Germany impossible to stop and have.. Read More
3Teeth -  (OMF Records)

3Teeth – (OMF Records)

Since 3Teeth blew my mind, soul and body live in 2015, I’ve become something of an obsessive. Their take on early-mid nineties style industrial harkens back to the machine spirit of classic Ministry, alien soundscapes of Skinny Puppy and the ferocity of Nine Inch Nail’s.. Read More

Vitriol – S/T (Hellthrasher Productions)

Dankest German filthsters Vitriol released this debut as a demo on cassette format during 2016 and it has been picked up now by Hellthrasher Productions and given a new lease of death on CD. The Nürnberg based duo behind it go cryptically by the names.. Read More
Nick Noro – Vietnamm (NBRD / Merdumgiriz Records)

Nick Noro – Vietnamm (NBRD / Merdumgiriz Records)

Apparently Californian Noro has been in a thrash metal group called Survival as well as Static Thought who played here at Reading and Leeds Festival (which means we probably wouldn’t have liked em). Listening to tracks from his solo material such as Cut on his.. Read More
Asphyx - Incoming Death (Century Media)

Asphyx – Incoming Death (Century Media)

All old school death metal fans know that there are 3 certainties in life. Death, Taxes, and the fact that any album with Martin Van Drunen’s voice on it is sure to have old school beats and a guitar tone fuzzier than chewbacca’s ballsack. And.. Read More
N.K.V.D. – Totalitarian Industrial Oppression (Krucyator Productions)

N.K.V.D. – Totalitarian Industrial Oppression (Krucyator Productions)

Just looking at the title line this all sounds somewhat scary doesn’t it? Well it should do too, as anyone naming themselves after The Russian People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs is not someone you would want knocking at your door and you would probably be.. Read More
Red Fang - Only Ghosts (Relapse)

Red Fang – Only Ghosts (Relapse)

I first became aware of Red Fang back in around 2010 when I came across the self titled debut via a friends recommendation. They grabbed my interest immediately, carrying off that vibe of doing something new with an old school sludgy attitude that boomed somewhat.. Read More
Meshuggah - The Violent Sleep Of Reason (Nuclear Blast)

Meshuggah – The Violent Sleep Of Reason (Nuclear Blast)

I have been following Meshuggah for a long time. In fact thinking back, having first discovered them when I was 15 years old, being 30 now means I have literally been listening to them for half my life. Which is a very scary thought indeed... Read More
Oracles – Miserycorde (Deadlight Entertainment)

Oracles – Miserycorde (Deadlight Entertainment)

A debut album from a new unheard of band? Well not exactly and if I tell you that this group have amidst their members a certain Sven de Caluwé I am sure a franc is dropping. It’s far from all about the Aborted frontman though.. Read More
