Mussorgski – Creatio Cosmicam Bestiae (Godz Ov War)

How…? What the..? Where did these guys come from? Ok, ‘this guy,’ more accurately. And the short answer is ‘Poland’ but that’s the answer to a lot of other questions too and the word ‘Poland’ is not really going to… Continue Reading →

Gravewurm – Doomed To Eternity (Hells Headbangers)

Since 1991 Gravewurm have been cranking out some of the dirtiest blackened deathly thrash out there.  With a discography of EPs and splits of near Nunslaughter proportions this prolific Ohio based outfit are one of the longest running cult bands… Continue Reading →

Ares Kingdom – The Unburiable Dead (Nuclear War Now)

Following a five year break from original studio recordings, save for a release of cover versions a couple of years back (‘Veneration’), Ares Kingdom return, streamlined to a 3-piece, but ever so powerful as they always have been. ‘The Unburiable… Continue Reading →

The Antichrist Imperium – S/T (Apocalyptic Witchcraft Recordings)

Mention the word Akercocke to most fans of extreme metal, and you’ll see them gaze longingly into the distance, in remembrance of one of the most dynamic death metal bands of recent years. A band that offered brutality, and a… Continue Reading →

Seagrave – Stabwound (Art Of Propaganda)

After plunging headlong into a full-scale Harakiri For The Sky obsession last year I was pleasantly surprised to hear only a few weeks ago that the band’s vocalist JJ had spread his wings ready for death or glory with his… Continue Reading →

The NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) scene has been positively thriving this year, with new offerings from Down, Crowbar, Eyehategod and now Goatwhore have joined the takeover with their sixth slice of groovy filth “Constricting Rage Of The Merciless”. For those… Continue Reading →

Orbitoclasto – Macerie (S/R)

Short and sweet all round here. This EP came telling me nothing more than the fact that this is a black crust band from Italy by “a bunch of guys already involved in other projects.” They have a pretty unfathomable… Continue Reading →

Lord Mantis – Death Mask (Profound Lore)

The last album by Lord Mantis 2012 release ‘Pervertor’ was a rancid, vile seething mass of corrosive guitar work and scathing vocals so as soon as this appeared I was quick to grab it and throw it on my review… Continue Reading →

Tartharia – X Years In Hell / Bleeding For The Devil (Phantom Pain)

Hailing from St Petersburg Russia Tartharia have been active over the last decade plus and released somewhere in the region of 9 CD’s, a DVD and have played over 200 shows. If like me they are not a band you… Continue Reading →

Anti Ritual – ST (Indisciplinarian / Vendetta)

Ah, lovely. As refreshing as a good kick to the shins from somewhere round Copenhagen way come’s the four guys that make up Anti Ritual. Blessed with the kind of chops that you suspect only come from being around a… Continue Reading →

Shores of Null – Quiescence (Candlelight)

There are an awful lot of creative, inventive bands coming out of Italy these days. Chances are there always was, but the rest of the world knew nothing about it until fairly recently (or maybe I am just old and… Continue Reading →
