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 →

Devourment – Obscene Majesty (Relapse)

Music is perhaps the most powerful form of media, it can help you through hard times, give you a sense of nostalgia, help you grow. Whatever the case may be it’s undeniable that some form of music will impress you… Continue Reading →

Slaughtbbath – Alchemical Warfare (Hells Headbangers)

Sonata Arctica – Talviyö (Nuclear Blast)

Let’s get this out of the way now. Sonata Arctica’s brand of melodic metal is not for everyone. If Cannibal Corpse are Last House on the Left and Eaten Alive then these jovial Finns are the Princess Bride and Labyrinth… Continue Reading →

Black Cilice – Transfixion Of Spirits (Iron Bonehead)

Obscure is a good word for Black Cilice. A name I have heard bandied about for quite a while by fans of a certain type of black metal yes but with a social media and internet presence seemingly consisting solely… Continue Reading →

Alcoholocaust – Necro Apocalipse Bestial (Hellprod)

Black Metal, the truest of the true, or at least in my mind anyway. The early Norwegian days of the 90’s were a breeding ground for the true and false debate. To my knowledge prior to that Metalheads simply accepted… Continue Reading →

Transport League – A Million Volt Scream (Mighty Music)

A quarter of a century these Swedish roughneck purveyors of hellish boogie have been plying their trade.  They had a break in the mid 2000’s in order to return with 2013’s Boogie From Hell. A Million Volt Scream follows Twist and… Continue Reading →
