Blood Red Throne – Fit To Kill (Mighty Music)

I can honestly say that there isn’t a weak link in the evolution of Blood Red Throne since they materialised on the death metal scene about 20 years ago. Indeed the bands last release “Union Of Flesh And Machine” was… Continue Reading →

Workshed – Workshed (Rise Above)

After nearly a quarter of a century away, two former Cathedral members have returned with Workshed. Namely, Mark Wharton and Adam Lehan, whom are well respected for their doom heritage, and Workshed simply personifies their importance and influence within the… Continue Reading →

The 69 Eyes – West End (Nuclear Blast)

Happy birthday to The 69 Eyes. Thirty years apparently. I mean that’s pretty great going for anyone. It’s funny though that even though I’ve been aware of them for maybe two decades this is our first waltz. Well opening song… Continue Reading →

Atlantean Kodex – The Course Of Empire (Van)

Atlantean Kodex. There are times when listening to this album that I forgot I was listening to a band; the concept that this was ‘simply’ a band seemed inadequate to contain what I was hearing. But of course that would… Continue Reading →

Capilla Ardiente – The Siege (High Roller Records)

Over five years ago I wrote these words on this very site “Capilla Ardiente (Burning Chapel) hail from Chile, play doom, and readily admit to being inspired by those far more European veterans Candlemass” Well, now in 2019, both Capilla… Continue Reading →

Winterfylleth – The Siege of Mercia (Candlelight)

It’s been 10 years since Winterfylleth made their debut performance at Bloodstock – one of the first open air festivals to take a chance on the now staple of British black metal when they were in their infancy. The band… Continue Reading →

Weeping Sores – False Confession (I, Voidhanger)

Has anyone got any Clearasil? Yes it is the sort of name you might expect from a gangrene enthused grind band but there is perhaps a clue in the word “weeping” as this trio from NYC are a doom death… Continue Reading →

Baest – Venenum (Century Media)

A tsunami of a drum rolls carves you open to the brutality that Baest are about to unleash on your soul. Deep guttural growls command the preceding’s and these are accompanied by fast intricate drum work and seemingly effortless fretwork… Continue Reading →

Eternity – To Become the Great Beast (Soulseller)

This band is a bit of who’s who in Norwegian black metal, providing an instant interest and attraction. The people in question are the band creator Evighet, who is supported in this collection of destruction by Blasphemer of Mayhem and… Continue Reading →

MMMD – Egoismo (Antifrost)

MMMΔ, aka MMMD aka Mohammad, now we have that out the way we can begin. Are you sitting comfortably? Well you won’t be for long and going to the toilet and ridding thyself of any excess waste is advisable before… Continue Reading →

Crypt Sermon – The Ruins Of Fading Light (Dark Descent)

It’s a bit of a running thing with myself that I am ‘that Death Metal guy’ Goregeous George, Slam King these are titles I’ve been accredited with by various people over the years, but there is far more to my… Continue Reading →

Devilish Impressions – Postmortem Whispering Crows (Non Serviam)

This three-track EP came with a mountain of accompanying information which I dutifully read. It seems like insecurity to me, and I don’t know why because Devilish Impressions have been upping their game since 2000, evolving their style of symphonic… Continue Reading →
