Nihil Eyes – Black Path (S/R)

As a patriotic sort, I always get excited when a new UK death metal band sticks its head up. Now I appreciate that there are loads new bands from all over the world releasing albums left, right and centre but… Continue Reading →

The King Is Blind – We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer (Calva Records)

I’ll be the first to admit that I only gave this a listen because it features a track with Karl Willetts on vocals. But I am certainly glad that I did, as the concept album that is ‘We Are The… Continue Reading →

With The Dead – Love From With the Dead (Rise Above)

With The Dead’s self titled debut in 2015 was greeted with much acclaim. Having been the culmination of efforts from ex-Cathedral front man Lee Dorrian and former Electric Wizard members Tim Bagshaw and Mark Greening, the album was a lesson… Continue Reading →

Cannabis Corpse – Left Hand Pass (Season Of Mist)

I like pro-wrestling. I find it absurdly entertaining and, like any wrestling fan I have my favourite characters. One of those is The Undertaker.  “that’s all very well Mark you wanker, but this is supposed to be an album review… Continue Reading →

Heresiarch – Death Ordinance (Dark Descent)

The last time I encountered the word Heresiarch in a musical context it was with cerebral epic metal clan Atlantean Kodex. It’s safe to say that the band Heresiarch draw no influences from that quarter of Bavaria, but it doesn’t… Continue Reading →

Memoriam- For The Fallen (Nuclear Blast)

…So, it’s finally arrived. I honestly can’t remember quite when I last looked forwards to an album this much. As a huge Bolt Thrower fan, I was left feeling pretty low when the war-obsessed crew decided to call it a… Continue Reading →

Invasion – Destroyer of Mankind (Abyss Records)

Returning after 7 years, Invasion come back with a more refined logo but the same theme with their WWII inspired death metal. Following on from a review I did some 7 years ago, Invasion haven’t changed what is not broken,… Continue Reading →

Echelon – The Brimstone Aggrandizement (Transcending Obscurity)

This is probably the last album review I’ll pen in 2016 for Ave Noctum and fuck me, what a belter to go out on! I could waffle on like normal with some sub Jeremy Clarkson prose but it’s Friday night… 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 →

Purgatory – Omega Void Tribvnal (War Anthem)

When I saw Purgatory’s name pop in the reviews list, I must say that I was more than curious to see how these Germans have evolved over the years. My first (and only) experience of them was their debut ‘Damage… Continue Reading →
