Memoriam – Requiem For Mankind (Nuclear Blast)

1914 – The Blind Leading The Blind (Redefining Darkness / Archaic Sound Records)

Nefasturris – Towers of Sin (S/R)

This is a recording project, considered a “life’s work” of Full Thrash Assault manager Dave Ingram Jr and features guest appearances from many a named artist in the business. Rawness is the key to the majority of the release, harbouring… Continue Reading →

Down Among The Dead Men – …And You Will Obey Me (Transcending Obscurity)

Interview – Dave Ingram (Audio)

“In a candid interview over a few beers, Mark Eve chats in depth with bona-fide death metal legend Dave Ingram.  Known for his unmistakeable vocal performances in bands such as Benediction, Bolt Thrower, Downlord, Echelon, Down Among The Dead Men… Continue Reading →

Memoriam- For The Fallen (Nuclear Blast)

…So, it’s finally arrived. I honestly can’t remember quite when I last looked forwards to an album this much. As a huge Bolt Thrower fan, I was left feeling pretty low when the war-obsessed crew decided to call it a… Continue Reading →

Anaal Nathrakh – The Whole Of The Law (Metal Blade)

If you have been following Anaal Nathrakh since their demo days and in more recent years putting yourself through the gruelling assault course of their live shows on a yearly basis you should know a few things. Firstly where their… Continue Reading →

Eteritus – Following the Ancient Path (Godz ov War)

This is old school death metal from Poland, using a similar font for their logo as Entombed and Fatalist, you kind of know what to expect on this debut album, but that’s just fine by me. There’s a cross between… Continue Reading →
