Berzerker Legion – Obliterate The Weak (Listenable Records)

Hellehond – Verslonden (Iron Bonehead)

I am assuming that the translation of this Dutch band’s moniker is simply Hell Hound or Hound Of Hell, either way it works for me as this act contains Bob Bagchus on drums under the name of Plechelmus. Added to… Continue Reading →

Cryptic Grave – S/T (Great Dane Records)

Atomwinter – Catacombs (Trollzorn)

Atomwinter are a new name to me, originating from the Saxony area I gather. Lovely cover to this, all stark black and white and highly detailed promising some old school styled death metal with Catacombs, and really that’s kind of… Continue Reading →

Extremity – Extremely Fucking Dead (20 Buck Spin)

Yeah I took one look at band name and title and thought bunch of bloody kids trying to be controversial with rude words and all that. Not the case at all though, you wouldn’t get a starry eyed bunch of… Continue Reading →
