AlNamrood – Wala’at (Shaytan Productions)

This appears to be the seventh album by the Saudi Arabian trio, which was formed in 2008. and while early albums focused on ancient Babylon, newer material is more topical and related to the Arabian Occult and entire Peninsula. Stylistically… Continue Reading →

Mordred – Volition (Independent)

I’m actually surprised I was never more of a Mordred fan in my youth. It probably has more to do with only ever seeing their albums once or twice in ZA and never getting a chance to actively listening to… Continue Reading →

Corpsing – Civilisation Under Nefarious Tyrants (S/R)

First things first. The album title is excellent on so very many levels. This twenty-year-old band was formed in London by the Cutispoto brothers and released their first two albums in 2005 and 2007 before going on a ten-year sabbatical…. Continue Reading →

Cauldron Black Ram – Slaver (20 Buck Spin)

‘Slaver’ is the fourth album by this Australian trio from Adelaide, and while the first 3 appear to be very pirate orientated, and while this one isn’t as buccaneer based, it still retains the theme of atrocities men commit on… Continue Reading →

Paradise Lost – Obsidian (Nuclear Blast)

Sixteen albums… That amounts to an album released every other year of Paradise Lost’s 32-year career. Granted there are some longer breaks than a year, but that’s because they released 7 in in the 1990s. Not only prolific, but damned… Continue Reading →

Blaze Of Sorrow – Absentia (Eisenwald)

This is the sixth album by 13 year old black metal band Blaze Of Sorrow, and if you’ve never heard of them, it might have a little to do with the fact that they sing Italian lyrics which may not… Continue Reading →

KHÔRA – Timaeus (Soulseller Records)

While this may not be as amusing as I’m making it out to be, I think this album is ahead of the curve. This is not just because it was recorded between 2017 and 2019, but… Drums and guitars were… Continue Reading →

Testament – Titans of Creation (Nuclear Blast)

Testament are quite easily one of my favourite thrash bands, and like the majority of them, come from the Bay Area. That could be because I was introduced to most of them by a kid from Oakland that was over… Continue Reading →

Atarka – Sleeping Giant (S/R)

When I first looked up the band name, I was directed to a Brazilian folk metal band with an affinity for alcohol rather than the quintet from Birmingham. Thankfully their style is far more aggressive and more fun for me… Continue Reading →

Ecnephias – Seven: The Pact Of Debauchery (My Kingdom Music)

The aptly titled album is the seventh by the Italian trio, and the third I’ve been privileged to review. As is their want their lyrics are both in English and Italian, with the latter songs seeming far broodier and melancholy… Continue Reading →

The Medea Project – Sisyphus (S/R)

Their bio says that while they are currently in Nottingham, UK, they hail from the east coast of South Africa, which I have an issue with, as that’s over 2000km worth of coast to figure out where they come from…. Continue Reading →

Horror God – Cursed Seeds (Lavadome)

While this may be the third album by this Russian quartet and their first full length on their current label, it’s the brand of aggressive death metal they deliver that should have had them noticed a lot longer ago. Or… Continue Reading →
