CD, MP3 and Demo reviews

Skulldriver – L.D.C. (Elitbolaget)

Firstly, what a fucking great name for a metal band…Skulldriver….fantastic stuff, up there with Parasitic Ejaculation, Anal Cunt and Cannibal Corpse in self determinism. Band names that evoke and accurately paint of picture as to what you’re likely to experience… Continue Reading →

Entombed – Live Clandestine (Threeman Records)

Some reviews are easier than others, but when you are asked to retrospectively trawl back through the annals of time to offer your thoughts on a live version of what many would consider to be a stone cold classic, genre… Continue Reading →

Sathamel – Horror Vacui (S/R)

Once more something stirs in what I am now convinced is a remarkable UKBM scene. It seems to be growing particularly strong in Wales and the North or England at the moment and it’s the latter from where black/death outfit… Continue Reading →

Laetitia in Holocaust – Fauci tra Fauci (Third I Rex)

From the historical city of Modena in the northern part of Italy come Laetitia in Holocaust with their unusual brand of black metal. “Fauci tra Fauci” is their third album release. Scornful and dirty is the way I’d describe the… Continue Reading →

Dool – Love Like Blood (Prophecy)

I think it is fair to say that a follow up to Dool’s debut album Here Now, There Then which arrived early 2017 is highly anticipated. It was a magical album and definitely touched a lot of hearts with its… Continue Reading →

Duel – Valley of Shadows (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Fucking hell, but time flies. Go back to 2013, and my joint favourite albums of the year were Hell’s ‘Chapter and Curse’ and Scorpion Child’s self titled helping of excellence. Well “what does that have to do with this review… Continue Reading →

Murg –Strävan (Nordvis)

If you somehow managed to miss Murg’s frost-bitten and pretty fucking stunning debut, perhaps holed up in your wintery forest domain wearing corpse paint and living only on food you caught and strangled with your bare hands, I can only… Continue Reading →

Depraved Murder – Manifestation (Comatose)

The Asian world is no stranger to brutality, Vomit Remnants, Butcher ABC, Wormrot, Glossectomy, Gorevent, Blunt Force Trauma the list goes on. Quite frankly if you want big Slams and ferocious speed then look no further. The continent is rife… Continue Reading →

Ancestral Lore – Behind The Night Horizon (S/R)

Nostalgia is something that can randomly hit any of the senses, sometimes when you least expect it. Music is a given for taking you back to a particular point of time and it is often a pleasure when listening to… Continue Reading →

Saint Vitus – Saint Vitus (Season Of Mist)

Doom, pretty much where it all started. I’m not just talking about Black Sabbath I’m talking about a whole host of Proto-Metal bands, Blue Cheer, Vanilla Fudge, Iron Butterfly these bands utilised the essence of mass distortion. This very facet… Continue Reading →

Arch/Matheos – Winter Ethereal (Metal Blade)

When founding Fates Warning members John Arch (vocals) and Jim Matheos (guitar) re-united for a full album in 2011 it was a genuinely nice moment in Progressive Metal history. As any fans of Fates Warning will know, John Arch left/was… Continue Reading →

Assatur – Where Chaos Reigned (Great Dane Records)

French label Great Dane Records have come to notice a few times in the last couple of years and have done a decent job in getting some underground death metal bands some exposure and, true to form, they’ve done it… Continue Reading →
