Vader – Solitude In Madness (Nuclear Blast)

I think one of the main keys to a successful band is consistency. When a band has a change in sound part way through their career it often deters many fans. I think that a gradual change or light change… Continue Reading →

Fleshgod Apocalypse, Bloodshot Dawn, Inhuman Nature – Milton Keynes Craufurd Arms 17/2/20

I think the last time I went to a gig in Milton Keynes was in at the Bowl in June 1998, but must say that other than it being a fair distance to get to, The Craufurd Arms did impress… Continue Reading →

Berzerker Legion – Obliterate The Weak (Listenable Records)

I thought I’d give a punt out to Berzerker Legion, which as it turns out is a bit of a death metal “supergroup” of sorts. Starring Fred Isaksson (Dark Funeral) – Bass, Tomas Elofsson (Hypocrisy – live) on guitars with… Continue Reading →

Vader – Thy Messenger (Nuclear Blast)

It has been 18 years since I bought a Vader album and nearly as long since I have seen them live. The first thing that’s clearly apparent as I listen to this five track EP, they have lost none of… Continue Reading →

Bloodshot Dawn – Reanimation (Hostile Media)

It’s all change on the Bloodshot Dawn front. Since the release of their second album, 2014’s “Demons” lone founder member, guitarist / singer Josh McMorran has recruited Canadian shredder Morgan Reid, drummer James Stewart (also of Vader and Divine Chaos)… Continue Reading →

Vader – The Empire (Nuclear Blast)

Coming a couple of months after the teasing ‘Iron Times’ EP, Vader have released their thirteenth LP, ‘The Empire’. Now if, like me, you’re a long-time fan of the Polish veterans then you’ll have a fair idea of what to… Continue Reading →

Darkrypt – Delirious Excursion (Transcending Obscurity)

Debut death metal from Mumbai here. Always glad to be reminded that this is a global family, it also has a couple of guest slots from visiting uncles Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, The Grotesquery, all the rest.) and Nitin Rajan (Primitiv)… Continue Reading →

Battlecross – Rise To Power (Metal Blade)

The album title for this fourth full length is a bold statement but typifies a band whose learning curve has been short but hectic in drawing in new listeners. Having loosely followed the band for about four years their brand… Continue Reading →

Bloodshot Dawn – Demons (S/R)

I think it’s fair to say that up to here UK melodic death thrashers Bloodshot Dawn have been executing a textbook perfect ‘how to grow your band’ plan. Demo, EP, well received self released debut, lots of good to great… Continue Reading →

Hypocrisy, Bloodshot Dawn, Ancient Ascendant – London Underworld 16/4/13

I must admit that I was a little underwhelmed with the choice of supports tonight, not that I hasten to add I have a problem with either band it’s just that promoters do tend to overbook local groups who are… Continue Reading →

Bloodstock Open Air Festival – Catton Hall, Derbyshire Thursday 9th August

Thursday at Bloodstock is a day to ease those of us arriving early into the festival and get into the spirit of things. Tents up and site negotiated we were lucky enough to have some glorious sunshine and plenty of… Continue Reading →
