Hank Von Hell – Egomania (Century Media)

Hank Von Hell – Egomania (Century Media)

Mascara was smudged down hairy cheeks in 2010 when Hank Von Hell turned his assless chaps on Turbonegro and headed for the sunset. Fortunately for Turbojugend one of their own, Tony Sylvester ex Dukes of Nothing, stepped up to the mic and the Norwegian nutters.. Read More
Megaton Leviathan - Mage (Blood Music)

Megaton Leviathan – Mage (Blood Music)

I have a question. Are we finally reaching the point in time where genres are pointless? I mean, sure classify something as Rock, Classical, Hip Hop, Jazz if you want but to break it down further is a little like listing ingredients when someone asked.. Read More
High On Fire -  Electric Messiah (eOne)

High On Fire – Electric Messiah (eOne)

To release one monster of an album in 2018 is no mean feat.  To do so with the wait of expectation from a rabid fanbase weighing like a concrete albatross is truly magnificent. For Matt Pike to follow up Sleeps’ “The Sciences” with a new High.. Read More
Pando - Hiraeth (Aesthetic Death)

Pando – Hiraeth (Aesthetic Death)

“Writing about music is like dancing about architecture” . A quote often attributed to Frank Zappa but possibly actually said by someone called Martin Mull. Whoever said it – if anyone did at all is moot. For once it feels that the quote rings true... Read More

Paranoid – Heavy Mental Fuck Up (The Sign)

Bands of this ilk are the reason I hurt my arm and damaged my pride 2 weeks ago. I am a portly man of 45 years who still cannot get past the idea that I cannot ride a skateboard. As part of my day job.. Read More

Moto Toscana – Self Titled (Tonzonen Records)

Moto Toscana – Self Titled (Tonzonen Records)

Moto Toscana is a trio with four strings and a drum kit between them.  Is less more?  The fact that Andy (vox) Michi (distorted bass) and Chrisch (Drums) describe themselves as Sludgefunk/Disco Doom piqued my interest. Add into that their claim – which I have no reason.. Read More
Neckbeard Deathcamp – White Nationalism is for Basement Dwelling Losers (S/R)

Neckbeard Deathcamp – White Nationalism is for Basement Dwelling Losers (S/R)

Heavy Metal loves a sub-genre and extreme metal takes it to fetish levels. If it can be broken down, cross pollinated and put into a tiny box it’s like aural Viagra to us. Black metal is one of the more wanton culprits – its acronym.. Read More
Panzer Squad – Ruins (Testimony Records)

Panzer Squad – Ruins (Testimony Records)

Teutonic threesome Panzer Squad began in 2012 and “Ruins” is their second full length release, following 2016’s “Coming to your Town”.  Heavy Metal’s preoccupation with the machines of War is understandable. Death contraptions of steel and iron that destroy and terrorize will always be wet dream.. Read More
Black Tusk – TCBT (Season Of Mist)

Black Tusk – TCBT (Season Of Mist)

Savannah – Georgia. Home to Baroness , Kylesa and of course Black Tusk. A humid and tropical place no wonder a band emerged from the city and claimed Swamp Metal as its oeuvre. Black Tusk, like Baroness, were struck by tragedy in recent years, losing.. Read More
