Soul Remnants – Ouroboros (eOne)

Soul Remnants – Ouroboros (eOne)

I was lucky enough to review “Black and Blood”, Soul Remnants second album a long while ago. It was a total blast and a fine balance between classic old school thrashing death metal and more modern technical DM.  So when this, their third album came.. Read More
Dynamite – Big Bang (Dynamite Productions)

Dynamite – Big Bang (Dynamite Productions)

Who likes AC/DC? Thought so. Pretty much all of you had a hand up then didn’t you? ….apart from that weird lad at the back with the skin tight “factory ripped” black jeans, lumberjack shirt, complicated hair and cultured beard…..fuck that guy…..look at him with.. Read More
Cannabis Corpse – Left Hand Pass (Season Of Mist)

Cannabis Corpse – Left Hand Pass (Season Of Mist)

I like pro-wrestling. I find it absurdly entertaining and, like any wrestling fan I have my favourite characters. One of those is The Undertaker.  “that’s all very well Mark you wanker, but this is supposed to be an album review for a metal website not.. Read More
Incantation – Profane Nexus (Relapse)

Incantation – Profane Nexus (Relapse)

There aren’t many bands like Incantation. For nearly thirty years they’ve been at the vanguard of the underground death metal scene and, to me at least, they’ve never disappointed. Sure some albums are better than others but I can honestly listen to anything from 92’s.. Read More
Venom Inc. – Ave (Nuclear Blast)

Venom Inc. – Ave (Nuclear Blast)

There’s a school of thought that a certain section of the metal community subscribe to that says “No Cronos, no Venom”.  You will no doubt have experienced this way of thinking in the sentiments of the “No Dave, no Van Halen” squad and the mewling.. Read More
Blood Of Seklusion – Servants Of Chaos (FDA Records)

Blood Of Seklusion – Servants Of Chaos (FDA Records)

I wasn’t familiar with Blood of Seklusion prior to receiving this and having read the opening promo blurb that, rather confusingly stated “Swedish death metal from Italy” I started to frown and get a bit grumpy. Now Italy is famous for many things….. The Mafia,.. Read More
Ursinne – Swim With The Leviathan (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Ursinne – Swim With The Leviathan (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Blimey, another belter from Transcending Obscurity Records here with the debut album from Ursinne. Right, for starters what’s an “Ursinne” and what’s this band all about? Well for starters “Ursinne” is a Swedish word for “rage” and the band is aptly titled! This here project.. Read More
Paganizer – Land Of Weeping Souls (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Paganizer – Land Of Weeping Souls (Transcending Obscurity Records)

You can be as fancy and as hi-tech as you like but after fannying around with the latest fads, in the end you’ll go back to what you know. In a past life the Remmington 870 was my shotgun of choice. Heavy, made of what.. Read More
Logic Of Denial – Aftermath (Comatose Music)

Logic Of Denial – Aftermath (Comatose Music)

I was due one. This is the third album from Italians, Logic of Denial and this brutal technical death metal band have produced a concept album based on the stages of grieving. Are your alarm bells ringing yet? Mine were….and continue to as I try.. Read More
Father Befouled – Desolate Gods (Dark Descent)

Father Befouled – Desolate Gods (Dark Descent)

It’s all very well playing fast and brutal, and indeed doing both things better than anyone else (like my beloved Cannibal Corpse), but sometimes you want a bit more…. “hideousness”,  a bit more “damp dungeon” a bit more “impending dread” and a touch of “oppressive.. Read More
Akatharta – Spiritus Immundus (Pulverised Records)

Akatharta – Spiritus Immundus (Pulverised Records)

Blimey, this is one scary record. Now, just like I’m not the biggest black metal fan (gloomy, shed burning, badger painted fairies) I’m not the biggest fan of doom metal either. With a few exceptions I tend to find it fucking dull with it’s one.. Read More
Maim – Ornaments Of Severity (Soulseller Records)

Maim – Ornaments Of Severity (Soulseller Records)

I remember the first Maim album in 2009, mostly because I thought it had a brilliant title “From The Womb To The Tomb”. The music was bang on too. A mixture of early Dismember and Entrails with a hefty dollop of grease on top. Proper.. Read More
