Seventh Genocide – Toward Akina (Third I Rex)

Seventh Genocide – Toward Akina (Third I Rex)

Black metal, more than any other genre, has produced some of the finest hybridisations of sub-genres resulting in some of the most intelligent, beguiling and intrinsically fascinating albums. I am very much of the school that the setting and mood is critical for listening to.. Read More
Ubiquity – Forever/Denied (Third I Rex)

Ubiquity – Forever/Denied (Third I Rex)

I downloaded this Italian band’s debut “Quiet In Hopelessness” released in 2017, available as a free download just in case you were wondering, to check out the bands progression but it appears they have overhauled their sound from a purely screamo based style into something.. Read More
Desolate Shrine – Deliverance From The Godless Void (Dark Descent)

Desolate Shrine – Deliverance From The Godless Void (Dark Descent)

Anyone who has ever listened to this Finnish death metal act will know just how enveloping the music is, it is truly asphyxiating and even though I have not heard the debut the previous two albums are utterly terrifying as this fourth continues the path.. Read More
Tetragrammacide - Primal Incinerators Of Moral Matrix (Iron Bonehead)

Tetragrammacide – Primal Incinerators Of Moral Matrix (Iron Bonehead)

Having experienced a couple of this Indian bands two releases in 2015 I can honestly say that they come close to holding the black crown of anti-music as the band vomits a debut full length onto this festering world we live in. Whilst the band’s.. Read More

Inconcessus Lux Lucis – The Crowning Quietus (I, Voidhanger Records)

In spite of being around for over a decade via this band and a previous outfit under the moniker Whorethorn both bands have slipped by me even though they’re from Manchester, UK and not far me geography wise. Inconcessus Lux Lucis already has a couple.. Read More
All Pigs Must Die – Hostage Animal (Southern Lord)

All Pigs Must Die – Hostage Animal (Southern Lord)

For those unfamiliar with this act it contains a raft of notable personnel, namely Ben Koller (Converge), Matt Woods and Adam Wentworth (Bloodhorse), Kevin Baker (The Hope Conspiracy) and Brian Izzi (Trap Them). I have skirted the fringes of All Pigs Must Die’s music with.. Read More
Complete Failure – Cross Burner (Season Of Mist)

Complete Failure – Cross Burner (Season Of Mist)

If any of you listened to this US bands self-released “The Art Gospel of Aggravated Assault” from 2012 then you know that that release is one of the most violent grindcore albums you heard during that year and even now as I listened to it.. Read More
Perturbator – New Model (Blood Music)

Perturbator – New Model (Blood Music)

I, probably like many other metal heads in the world, got into Perturbator aka James Kent, via the “Dangerous Days” album released in 2014 which for me was a chance listen when browsing the Blood Music bandcamp pages just sampling what the label had to.. Read More
Spectral Voice – Eroded Corridors Of Unbeing (Dark Descent Records)

Spectral Voice – Eroded Corridors Of Unbeing (Dark Descent Records)

It is quite possible that Dark Descent is one of my favourite record labels and has been for the past few years due to the continual output of top quality extreme music they release and this debut full length from US doom death outfit Spectral.. Read More
Red Dead – Therapy Of The Evil (Great Dane Records)

Red Dead – Therapy Of The Evil (Great Dane Records)

Relative French newcomers Red Dead bring their debut full length to a death metal world that is absolutely brimming with top rate bands and a cursory glance at the 200 plus death metal albums that have been released this year alone this album is going.. Read More
Frakasm – Century Of Decline (Great Dane Records)

Frakasm – Century Of Decline (Great Dane Records)

As 2017 hits its final quarter I was musing over how many great releases there have been so far and in any other year Frakasm’s debut would probably have been a very good one. However when put up against the glut of exceptional albums within.. Read More
Hyban Draco – Storms Of Desolation (Winter Demons Records)

Hyban Draco – Storms Of Desolation (Winter Demons Records)

Spain isn’t the usual destination you’d turn to for a black metal band as this outfit has been around for a decade and this is the bands fifth album though I’m unfamiliar with their back catalogue at this juncture. As with the majority of melodic.. Read More
