Tranquillizer – Des Endes Anfang (S/R)

This debut album from Germany’s Tranquillizer gets off to a lively start. The greeting is a healthy dose of boisterous melodic blackened death metal. It’s perhaps a contradiction to describe black metal as “jolly” but “Eine Andere Welt” (An Another… Continue Reading →

Abysmal Lord – Disciples Of The Inferno (Hells Headbangers)

Back in the day, as in the 1980s, when extreme metal was placing its boots firmly into the metal scene bands like Abysmal Lord would have been snapped up by yours truly as something violent and oozing a blackened septic… Continue Reading →

Creeping – Revenant (Iron Bonehead)

Purveyors of blackened doom since 2004, New Zealand’s Creeping come in to ‘Revenant’ with two well reviewed albums already under their collective belt. Now signed to Iron Bonehead for the vinyl release (Daemon Worship for the CD) of their latest… Continue Reading →

Adversarial – Death, Endless Nothing and the Black Knife of Nihilism (Dark Descent)

Someone clearly got out of bed on the wrong side this morning and that someone is three Canadian blokes from Toronto whose pure blast of nihilistic fury would even give veteran war metallers like Diocletian a chill. Adversarial bleeds dissonant… Continue Reading →

Ectovoid – Dark Abstraction (Hellthrasher Productions)

I must admit I was attracted to this band via their name, and in the past I’ve bought some stuff just based on a band’s name as I was anticipating some grim down tuned deathly thuggery to come my way,… Continue Reading →

Mefitic – Woes Of Mortal Devotion (Nuclear War Now)

These foul and noxious Italians formed with the principal intent to spread the horrid feelings connected to Death. It may have taken them a decade to hone their craft and release this their debut album following numerous demos, EP’s and… Continue Reading →

Cohol – Rigen (Osmose)

Having a band member from Impiety is for me a point of interest, and this is the case here. The band member in question’s time with the Singaporean extremists was in fact short-lived, and Cohol themselves have been going since… Continue Reading →

Mor Dagor – Redeemer (Osmose)

Having signed to Osmose Productions late last year, war-obsessed German metallers Mor Dagor have just released their 5th album ‘Redeemer’, and without a doubt, it’s one of the most exciting bombardments of blackened death metal to assault the ears in… Continue Reading →

Perdition Temple – The Tempter’s Victorious (Hell’s Headbangers)

It’s probably best to start off by stating that Angelcorpse are pretty much my favourite band of all time. When they disbanded (again) in 2009 and news came of guitarist Gene Palubicki releasing material intended for the fifth Angelcorpse CD… Continue Reading →

Vholdghast – Låt oss förbrinna (Vicisolum)

Despite jamming together for over ten years, Vholdghast have only just got around to showcasing their sound on record, which is fair enough when you consider how many projects this four piece juggle between them (six for vocalist Jonny alone)…. Continue Reading →

Trident – Shadows (War Anthem)

Trident was formed in 2007 by a few of Swedish black/death metal’s luminaries including Johan Norman (Dissection, Sacramentum), Tobias Sidgård (Necrophobic, jail) and Jonas Blum (Runemagick). Their 2010 debut album ‘World Destruction’ was definitely one that I was looking forward… Continue Reading →

Crest Of Darkness – Evil Messiah (My Kingdom)

I’ve kind of been aware of Crest Of Darkness for a while, but, as is the way of the world never quite managed to intersect with the Norwegians until this EP. Which I guess is as good a way as… Continue Reading →
