Atrexial – Souverain (Godz Ov War Productions)

Persecutory – Towards the Ultimate Extinction (Godz ov War)

Persecutory – Towards the Ultimate Extinction (Godz ov War)

The band name and album title give no doubt that this is a blackened death death work. The band in question is from Turkey and this is their first full album release following an EP “Perversion Feeds Our Force” in 2016. My first impression was.. Read More

Svart Crown – Abreaction (Century Media)

Svart Crown – Abreaction (Century Media)
