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
Dead Woman’s Ditch – Seo Mere Saetan (Third I Rex)

Dead Woman’s Ditch – Seo Mere Saetan (Third I Rex)

When I first saw the moniker of this band my heart sank. “Another example of violent misogyny in the world of extreme music “ Ironic as I was wearing a Lunatic Hooker tee at the time. I could not be more wrong and this 6.. Read More
(Dolch) – III - Songs of Happiness, Words of Praise (Ván)

(Dolch) – III – Songs of Happiness, Words of Praise (Ván)

Props must be given to German group (Dolch) for managing to keep up an air of mystery in an Internet age. I still haven’t a clue of the name of the artists although they have come out the woodwork a little to perform live, most.. Read More
Smothered Bowels – Dead Cunt Dance (Bizarre Leprous Production)

Smothered Bowels – Dead Cunt Dance (Bizarre Leprous Production)

It’s time to get that politically correct handbook, rip the pages out of it and wipe your bum on them. Yep these Russian grinders are about being offensive and acting like very rude and naughty school-kids so be warned if you are of a sensitive.. Read More
Caïnan Dawn - F.O.H.A.T. (Osmose)

Caïnan Dawn – F.O.H.A.T. (Osmose)

Caïnan Dawn’s last opus hit me like a lorry load of corpse paint. Rumbling, muscular black metal with a mission to drown you in wave upon wave of bass-heavy sound that requires nothing more of you than to stop, listen and give yourself up to.. Read More
Insane – Evil (Duplicate Records)

Insane – Evil (Duplicate Records)

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
Purple Hill Witch – Celestial Cemetery (Church Within)

Purple Hill Witch – Celestial Cemetery (Church Within)

Another review, and yet another band I’d never heard of, in this case Purple Hill Witch. Despite hailing from the wintery realms of Norway, they are not a new addition to that region’s pantheon of corpse paint wearing child frighteners, rather an act that are.. Read More
Cloak – To Venomous Depths (Season of Mist)

Cloak – To Venomous Depths (Season of Mist)

Atlanta Georgia is not the first place one would think of when Blackened Death Rock is what is on the cards. However, Cloak hail form the Southern States and ply their trade in the same market as Watain and Tribulation. The quintet have been around.. Read More
Talv – Entering A Timeless Winter (A Sad Sadness Song)

Talv – Entering A Timeless Winter (A Sad Sadness Song)

It’s getting colder but kind of taking its time Winter is coming though and it could well be timeless. Will we be walking in a winter wonderland with Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Bing Crosby and Co? Nope very unlikely. We may however be listening to.. Read More
Watchcries - Wraith (Holy Roar / Headless Guru)

Watchcries – Wraith (Holy Roar / Headless Guru)

Watchcries are the new kid on the block; the four members came together last year from previous bands including Torpor and War Wolf, whose own brands of sludge had earned each a reputation for in-your-face metal. I first caught them at their live debut early.. 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
Ghold – Stoic (Crypt Of The Wizard)

Ghold – Stoic (Crypt Of The Wizard)

One thing I learnt while reading up on this album is that there is a heavy metal store called Crypt of the Wizard in East London. Having spent hours and hours in record shops in my life, and picking up many gems of pleasure from.. Read More
