Well these young Swedish whipper-snappers formed in 2009 and, after a few demos, splits etc this is their debut album, and there’s quite a lot to like if you’re a fan of old school thrash metal especially when you consider these young’uns weren’t even alive.. Read More

In the same way as Iron Maiden, Kiss & Motorhead, you know what you’re gonna get with a Cannibal Corpse album. Sadly, like the aforementioned legends ‘Corpse have their detractors, people that criticise the band for their consistency. However there’s something you need to know.. Read More

Nihil Eyes – Black Path (S/R)

As a patriotic sort, I always get excited when a new UK death metal band sticks its head up. Now I appreciate that there are loads new bands from all over the world releasing albums left, right and centre but most are about as much.. Read More

Panzer – The Fatal Command (Nuclear Blast)

If you didn’t grab Panzer’s debut album “Send Them All To Hell” then have a quiet word with yourself over a stiff drink. It was one of the best heavy metal releases of 2014. A classic Teutonic power trio, Schmier (bass / vocals) Herman Frank.. Read More
Meat Train – Random Acts Of Carnage (Contagion Records)

Meat Train – Random Acts Of Carnage (Contagion Records)

Meat Train’s 2013 debut “Flesh Made Man” was a cool record. From the eye catching cover art to the Londoners blend of filthy, primitive death metal the album was, for me at least a breath of pungent air and the exact polar opposite of a.. Read More
Necrovorous – Plains Of Decay (Dark Descent Records)

Necrovorous – Plains Of Decay (Dark Descent Records)

The drummer’s called …. “Shit Eater”. I could leave it right there really. But no, I’ll soldier on with this review of the second (NOT sophomore Stu) full-length of these Athens based death metallers. According to the promo blurb, Mr Eater started the band in.. Read More

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

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
