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 →

On Thorns I Lay – Threnos (Lifeforce Records)

This is the 9th album by this 25 year old Greek band. Granted this may be the first album of theirs that I’m actually listening to, but I was aware of their existence owing to their contemporaries which I follow… Continue Reading →

Fleshgod Apocalypse, Bloodshot Dawn, Inhuman Nature – Milton Keynes Craufurd Arms 17/2/20

I think the last time I went to a gig in Milton Keynes was in at the Bowl in June 1998, but must say that other than it being a fair distance to get to, The Craufurd Arms did impress… Continue Reading →

Sepultura – Quadra (Nuclear Blast)

This is quite easily Sepultura’s best album in a really long time. Sure, I’ve enjoyed the last 3 but nowhere near as much as this one. Perhaps is has to do with the quartering up of the album and that… Continue Reading →

Dark Matter – Nebula To Black Hole (My Kingdom Music)

Well 2020 is getting off to a really strange start. While Dark Matter appears to be a band from Tehran, Iran, the album contains 8 tracks featuring 15 artists from 10 countries along with members Aria Moghaddam on guitar, vocals… Continue Reading →

Blightmass – Severed From Your Soul (Great Dane Records)

It’s kinda fitting that this shall be my last review for the year. Granted the name of the band has naught to do with the current time of year or that there appears to be a blight of sense around… Continue Reading →

Klaw – LightCrusher (S/R)

This is the début album by the Swiss quintet, a thrash metal band and contain a member of Poltergeist, which turns out to be one unknown to me, as I only ever managed to pick up ’91s ‘Behind My Mask’…. Continue Reading →

Sacred Reich & Night Demon – London The Underworld 27/11/19

With doors opening at 7, and me not wanting to miss anything, I actually arrived on time, only to discover that Night Demon, who were first up, were only starting at 8.15 thereby giving me an hour to grab a… Continue Reading →

Hanging Garden – Into That Good Night (Lifeforce Records)

While this may be the Finnish septet’s sixth album, it’s my second foray into their material, with Riikka Hatakka making the transition to permanent member of the band from Helsinki since the last album and thereby having them incorporate far… Continue Reading →

Les Chants Du Hasard – Livre Second (I, Voidhanger Records)

While I really enjoyed the début from Les Chants Du Hasard in 2017, I must say that this second album completely blows it out of the water. The orchestral music is more symphonic and grandiose but also a lot darker… Continue Reading →

Vinsta – Drei Deita (Trollmusic)

While their bio says they started out as a folk band and are now melodic death metal, Vinsta manage to retain their folk roots and blend them into the metal seamlessly using that sound for emphasis rather than as a… Continue Reading →
