The Black Sorcery – Wolven Degrade (Krucyator Productions)

It’s like going back in time. After a few seconds of outright warfare, total unabated breakneck black metal carnage ensues. The sound quality is rotten and dirty. The vocalist hisses down a tube, or it seems like it. The riff… Continue Reading →

Imprecation – Damnatio Ad Bestias (Dark Descent)

One thing that I really love about being completely obsessed with music is discovering all of the cult bands and releases. It fills you with a strange sense of achievement as if you’ve attained some sort of prowess in your… Continue Reading →

Eggs Of Gomorrh – Outpregnate (Krucyator Productions)

You what? Yep it’s kind of difficult taking the group name seriously here. Every time I think of it I get images of a missing Tom Baker Doctor Who adventure written by Terry Nation. No doubt if it had existed… Continue Reading →

Non Serviam The Official Story Of Rotting Christ – Sakis Tolis & Dayal Patterson (Cult Never Dies)

If you are on this site and playing a word association game “Greece” will no doubt be swiftly followed by thoughts of Rotting Christ as much as package holidays. Without doubt, with over three decades of history behind the much… Continue Reading →

Dakhma – Hamkar Atonement (Iron Bonehead)

Is there anything more Metal than subject matter pulled from ancient religious texts? Probably not and in the times of the present this brand of unholy scripture is prime subject matter for the forward progression of Metals chaos fuelled underground…. Continue Reading →

Blasphamagoatachrist – Black Metal Warfare (Nuclear War Now)

If a band is on Nuclear War Now you know you are not gonna get blackgaze or folk. The band name is horrendously wonderful. An amalgamation of its members other acts – Blasphemy, Goatpenis and Antichrist (why leave penis out… 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 →

Temple Nightside – The Hecatomb (Iron Bonehead)

Sometimes, the album art says it all. In the case of “The Hecatomb”, greying, blue light dimly lights a crumbling vista festooned with skulls and the detritus of skulls. This, my friends, is an omen of what is to come… Continue Reading →

Satanize – Apocalyptic Impious Command (Deviant Records)

30 minutes of bestial barbarity here from Portughell. Helmed by Reverend of the Hell Legions and Macabre Tyranny on bass and guitar and Reverend of Diabolical Services and Sinister Sorcery drums and vokills, you pretty much know what you are… Continue Reading →

Dysemblem – Strength Of Giants (S/R)

Worshipping the old ways and apparently having been in the metal scene for over 20 years Aees is originally from Greece but resides in London. Dysemblem may well be a new name for you, as it was for me and… Continue Reading →

Satanic Warmaster/Archgoat – Split (Hells Headbangers)

It seems there’s been quite a bit of controversy around Satanic Warmaster lately – something to do with a gig in Scotland. Now they’re not a band I’d ever really investigated. From distant memory (mainly Supernal mail order catalogues) their… Continue Reading →
