Warhorns Festival – Rotherham The Trades 31/8/19

Day 2 Bugger. I mess up timings and so me and the rest of the Last Of The Summer Wine cast can’t stop for decent food at the one nice cafe we found. Although bizarrely someone bought a painting on… 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 →

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

Given the legacy, it is not surprising that Norway continues to spawn seemingly endless black metal bands but after 30 years or so, it is increasingly difficult to find anything that sounds fresh within the genre, with many content to… Continue Reading →

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 →

Warhorns Festival – Rotherham The Trades 30/8/19

Day 1  So here we are, once more; the Warhorns travelling carnival of chaos as the organisers themselves described it, rolls into another new venue after the sad demise of last year’s glorious venue at Eggborough power station. Truncated to… 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 →

Wiegedood – London Boston Arms 5/9/19

If you absolutely love an album what better way is there than seeing it performed live and in its entirety? This is a way bands and artists have embraced fully in the last decade or so and it is a… Continue Reading →
