Dold Vorde Ens Navn – Gjengangere I Hjertets Mørke (SoulSeller Records)

Visceral Disgorge – Slithering Evisceration (Agonia)

I’m having a whale of a time right now, 2019 is one of the strongest years for music in a long time. I’ve divulged into so much from the killer records of Rammstein, Tool and Equipoise to Pop records and… Continue Reading →

Formicarius – Rending The Veil Of Flesh (Schwarzdorn)

Billed as “the new nobility of British black metal”, Formicarius appear to be suffering an identity crisis. Rising from the ashes of proggy fantasists Phyrexia in 2014, their debut album “Black Mass Ritual” gained the band attention with its symphonic… Continue Reading →

Horrific Demise – Excruciating Extermination (Comatose)

I’ve said it a million times on here but I love Death Metal, and 2019 is proving to be one hell of a year for the genre. I honestly think that right now there has never been a better time… Continue Reading →

Foscor – Els Sepulcres Blancs (Season Of Mist)

Els Sepulcres Blancs (The White Tombs) is Foscor’s new album and the second volume of what is planned to be a trilogy inspired by the fin de siècle artistic movement. Fin de siècle is French for “end of the century”,… Continue Reading →

Gurt – Bongs Of Praise (When Planets Collide)

You know what? Gurt are just a shit load of fun. “Party doom” without a doubt. Live, they’re complete killers. The best bit though, is that they capture that vibe on record consistently which is a very important part of… Continue Reading →

Grevia – Misophonic (Lethal Scissor Records)

Starting with American news clips talking of alleged CIA killings during the Bush administration Grevia unleash 6 tracks of furious Deathgrind. This Sicillian Trio of Vocalist Padride Mercurio, Bassist Vincenzo Frisella and Giorgio Trombino on guitars are no slouches. Joined… Continue Reading →

Runespell – Voice Of Opprobrium (Iron Bonehead)

When I woke up this morning I was so happy, it was finally raining. I’m not sure how you readers feel about the weather but as a recent convert to preferring the winter I have to confess this change in… Continue Reading →

Darkend – Spiritual Resonance (Dark Essence)

If you have ever seen macabre looking lead singer Animæ in action before, Italian cult act Darkend are not a name you are likely to have forgotten. He popped up in London at the Dome and did some guest vocals… Continue Reading →

Noekk – Waltzing In Obscurity (Prophecy Productions)

Prior to the surprise emergence of a track on a 7” vinyl last year, the last time we heard anything from unique Progressive project Noekk was way back in 2008 with their album “The Minstrel’s Curse”. So why the sudden… Continue Reading →

Haunter – Sacramental Death Qualia (I, Voidhanger)

This is the second album from Texans Haunter, who have been going for 6 years. Identified points of reference for this band are Gorguts and Immolation, but that’s just the death metal element. The album unleashes without delay a ball… Continue Reading →

Cropsy Maniac – Carnage (HPGD)

I could sum this release up in a short paragraph…. “like splatter movies?……  like death/grind?……. like death/grind that’s all about splatter movies? If the answer’s yes, then stop reading this now and buy this EP!” But then the editor would… Continue Reading →
