Devangelic - Phlegethon (Comatose Music)

Devangelic – Phlegethon (Comatose Music)

It is fair to say that Devangelic’s sophomore release `Phlegethon’ is one heavy album. Meatier than a 48 ounce steak between two giant hams, this is a truly crushing, devastating album. This is a prime cut, if you will, of brutal Death/Gore metal in the.. Read More
Deny The Urge - As Darkness Falls (G.U.C.)

Deny The Urge – As Darkness Falls (G.U.C.)

`As Darkness Falls’ is German death metal fanatics Deny The Urge’s third album, and it really does pack quite a punch. I’ve heard a LOT of death metal over the years, particularly so-called `old school’ death metal; very often it is just an unimaginative re-hash.. Read More
Morfin -  Consumed By Evil (F.D.A. Records)

Morfin – Consumed By Evil (F.D.A. Records)

`Consumed By Evil’ is the second full length release from Californian Death Metal stalwarts Morfin, and sounds just like it could have been released in the early 90’s. In fact, if someone had said to me that this album was a re-release of an underground.. Read More
Resurgency -  No Worlds…Nor Gods Beyond ( FDA Records)

Resurgency – No Worlds…Nor Gods Beyond ( FDA Records)

No Worlds… is the second album by underground Greek death metal stalwarts Resurgency, and a mighty album it is indeed. Although Athens is a pretty sunny place most of the time, from listening to this album I would suspect that wherever Resurgency are based in.. Read More
Rude - Remnants…  (F.D.A. Rekotz)

Rude – Remnants… (F.D.A. Rekotz)

`Remnants…’ is the second full length studio album from Californian crew Rude, and it is quite a bone-crushing release I can tell you! Forget sunshine, forget glamour; this band sound like they live in a cold, dark, filth-smeared wasteland. This, folks, is an output of.. Read More
October 31 - Metal Massacre 31 (Hells Headbangers)

October 31 – Metal Massacre 31 (Hells Headbangers)

This latest offering from classic heavy metal fanatics October 31 is a slightly different affair to normal. Rather than being a new studio album with their own songs, the group have decided to pay tribute to the legendary heavy metal compilations known as Metal Massacre... Read More
Minotaur Head – S/T (War Anthem Records)

Minotaur Head – S/T (War Anthem Records)

This slab of grimness is the debut album of pan-European supergroup Minotaur Head; containing members of various Swedish and Dutch underground extreme metal bands, that any extreme metal fan worth his or her salt will have heard of: Hail Of Bullets, Asphyx, and God Macabre.. Read More
Vuolla - Blood. Stone. Sun. Down. (Schwarzdorn)

Vuolla – Blood. Stone. Sun. Down. (Schwarzdorn)

This is Vuolla’s first full length release, and it is indeed an epic affair. If I told you that Vuolla were from a rural town in Southern Finland, surrounded by lakes, I wonder if you could guess the genre? Give yourself a point, if you.. Read More
Graveyard -  For Thine is the Darkness (War Anthem Records)

Graveyard – For Thine is the Darkness (War Anthem Records)

Some underground bands manage to only throw out one release every few years, such is the nature of balancing work, life and a band that is labour of love/expensive hobby. Other bands somehow manage to be incredibly prolific, despite not having a budget the size.. Read More
Dream Death – Dissemination (Rise Above)

Dream Death – Dissemination (Rise Above)

Many, many extreme metal bands claim to be `cult’, or even `kult’ but so few ever live up to that description. Dream Death however, have no such qualms. This is a true, legendary, underground cult band from Pittsburgh who have been following their own (sort.. Read More
Villainy - Villainy II: Dim (Listenable)

Villainy – Villainy II: Dim (Listenable)

I’m new to this band, but after giving their second full-length a few listens, I fully intend to keep on top of their progress. Villainy (not to be confused with an Alternative Rock band from New Zealand), are a band from the Netherlands with a.. Read More
Incarceration - Sacrifice (Dawnbreed Records)

Incarceration – Sacrifice (Dawnbreed Records)

This 3 track EP literally screams `Old School Death Metal’, from the spiky logo, in a gothic looking font, and the grisly, black and white cover art to the little inverted cross underneath the track list! Musically it does not disappoint either; the three tracks.. Read More
