Vargrav – Reign In Supreme Darkness (Werewolf Records)

As we move ever closer to the summer months I find my adoration for Black Metal and Blackened music dwindling. Essentially I am like a Metal tortoise, in the sun I flourish with the brighter more energetic tones of Death,… Continue Reading →

Necromutilator – Black Blood Aggression (Terror From Hell)

Necromutilator hail from Italy and, well, what do you think a band called Necromutilator sound like? Yeah. Like that. Which is probably why Black Blood Aggression crawled from the review lists into my lap looking for a warm place to… Continue Reading →

Cultes Des Ghoules – Sinister (Hell’s Headbangers)

Sinister by name and sinister by nature, watch out the ghoules are back in town. If you have a certain song going round in your head after reading that line, wipe it out now. This lot are in no way… Continue Reading →

Morketida – Panphage Mysticism (Werewolf Records)

Finnish black metal has been living in the shadow of its more illustrious Norwegian counterparts for many years, but make no mistake about it, the Finnish scene is thriving and has spawned some of the nastiest black metal on offer… Continue Reading →

Provocator – Satan, Chaos, Blood And Terror (Moribund)

Recently I have found myself enamored by Bestial Black Metal or War Metal if you like. Raw untamed, relentless Black Metal with a heavy Death Metal influence taking inspiration from the beginnings of Extreme Metal with an excessive worship towards… Continue Reading →

Vassafor – Malediction (Iron Bonehead)

It’s funny but I’ve been listening to a lot of late eighties, early nineties stuff recently for the usual confluence of synchronicity reasons. I say funny, but it’s just that it put me in the right mindset to approach NZ… Continue Reading →

Poison Blood – S/T (Relapse Records)

Technology is a wonderful thing.  Connecting people around the globe in moments. Gone are the days of “Penbangers” in Metal Forces – waiting for those C90 tapes to arrive from the other side of the world – or up the… Continue Reading →

Vitriol – S/T (Hellthrasher Productions)

Dankest German filthsters Vitriol released this debut as a demo on cassette format during 2016 and it has been picked up now by Hellthrasher Productions and given a new lease of death on CD. The Nürnberg based duo behind it… Continue Reading →

Celestial Bodies-Spit Forth From Chaos (I, Voidhanger)

Raw noise infused bestial Black Metal informed by a free form Jazz style. Easy listening this was not going to be, but what is life without a challenge?  This Dutch duo are ex members of Nihil and Dead Neanderthals and… Continue Reading →

Ritual Killer – Exterminance (Season Of Mist)

Formed in 1999 by members of Goatwhore and a few like minded nihilists, Ritual Killer was conceived with the aim of being a singularly savage US black metal force. Their debut album (and only release aside from this follow-up) ‘Upon… Continue Reading →

Hellgoat – End Of Man (Boris Records)

A couple of 7” records from the ever interesting Boris Records winged their way to us recently. The first of these delivers some good old goat worship just the way we like it courtesy of USBM outfit Hellgoat. The band… Continue Reading →
