Godskill – The Gatherer Of Fear And Blood (MDD Records)

Bloodbath – The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn (Peaceville)

De Profundis – The Binding Light Of Faith (Transcending Obscurity)

Deiquisitor – Downfall Of The Apostates (Dark Descent)

I guess death metal comes in all shapes and sizes now, from brutal old school through slamming to whatever technoflash some guitarist has come up with recently. Well Denmark’s Deiquisitor offer a nightmarish black and white cover which hints at… Continue Reading →
