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
Kalopsia – Angelplague (Horror Pain Gore Death)

Kalopsia – Angelplague (Horror Pain Gore Death)

Right first things first, I thought “kalopsia” would be the name of some sort of bum-disease or something. But no. I was wrong. According to my dictionary in means “a state or delusion in which things appear more beautiful than they really are. As a.. Read More

Interview – Dave Ingram (Audio)

“In a candid interview over a few beers, Mark Eve chats in depth with bona-fide death metal legend Dave Ingram.  Known for his unmistakeable vocal performances in bands such as Benediction, Bolt Thrower, Downlord, Echelon, Down Among The Dead Men and, most recently his time.. Read More
Nitrogods – Roadkill BBQ (Steamhammer)

Nitrogods – Roadkill BBQ (Steamhammer)

This will be a short one. Nitrogods are German & sound (and look) like a Motorhead / ZZ Top covers band. Which of course, is not necessarily a bad thing. This is their third album of beer soaked, rock & blues and it’s as subtle.. Read More
Warfist – Metal To The Bone (Godz Ov War Productions)

Warfist – Metal To The Bone (Godz Ov War Productions)

Warfist. I won’t lie, not being familiar with the band the first image that came into my head was a load of spotty inadequates, smelling of TCP sat round a table throwing dice and moving miniature wizards about. But no. Wrong again Marky. This bunch.. Read More
Fleshdoll – Heart Of Darkness (Great Dane Records)

Fleshdoll – Heart Of Darkness (Great Dane Records)

I was quite taken with Fleshdoll’s fourth album “Blood Red District” when I reviewed it a couple of years ago so was chuffed to get this CD through the post and even more chuffed to hear it was an album of the same quality death.. Read More
Firespawn – The Reprobate (Century Media)

Firespawn – The Reprobate (Century Media)

If you’re not familiar with Firespawn then let me enlighten you. The band members are a veritable who’s who of Swedish death metal, featuring members of Unleashed, Entombed AD, Necrophobic & Skineater. As solid a pedigree as you’ll find in any so called “supergroup” anywhere.. Read More
Warcrab – Scars Of Aeons (Transcending Obscurity)

Warcrab – Scars Of Aeons (Transcending Obscurity)

I like the simple things, in music as well as in life. Let me explain….. Now in “real life” I’m somewhat of an accomplished barbecue chef. While I enjoy, and get a kick out of doing long, slow cooks like briskets and pork shoulders where.. Read More
Infernal Majesty – No God (High Roller Records)

Infernal Majesty – No God (High Roller Records)

Blimey, here’s a band with a history. These Canadian thrashers are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year. Thirty years…..what were you doing thirty years ago? Chances are you weren’t even alive. Well these Canucks were churning out quality thrash metal in that peculiarly aggressive Canadian.. Read More
