Holocausto – Diário De Guerra (Nuclear War Now)

Brazilian Metal is a very integral part of Metal’s history as a whole. Bands like Sepultura, Krisiun Sarcófago, and Mutilator showed the world a new level of extremity that still to this day is hard to pin point. These bands… Continue Reading →

TraumeR – History (Rock Of Angels)

Yep, not a typing error, the band appear to like their name written with a capital R on the end, so as I did with BattleroaR last year, I shall humour them and carry on the tradition. TraumeR (see, told… Continue Reading →

Power From Hell – Profound Evil Presence (High Roller)

Blackened Thrash from Brazil given the Fenriz thumbs up. Power From Hell have slapped on their corpse paint and strapped on the spikes to let rip with some orange squeezing , head snapping horrors. This is their 6th album in 18… Continue Reading →

Mystifier – Protogoni Mavri Magiki Dynasteia (Season Of Mist)

Brazil to me represents the epicentre of a true Metal fan, I don’t so much mean true in the sense of a ‘death to false Metal’ manner but rather true in terms of one whom has taken their time to… Continue Reading →

Soulfly – Ritual (Nuclear Blast)

It has been 20 years since Max Cavalera announced the presence of Soulfly on the music scene with their self titled debut album and despite numerous line-up changes over the years and some very noteworthy guest appearances, the band has… Continue Reading →

Piah Mater – The Wandering Daughter (Code 666)

I always finding it disconcerting when an album starts with three minutes of acoustic progressive ambience – quite sophisticated actually – and immediately changes tack and goes into death metal vibes. I won’t hold this against Piah Mater specifically, whose… Continue Reading →

Diabolic Force – Praise Of Satan (Hells Headbangers)

Just recently I have been questioned many a time on the subject of trve Metal, what does it mean? How can you explain it? And so forth. So here and now I aim to explain my definition, in one comedic… Continue Reading →

Krisiun – Scourge Of The Enthroned (Century Media)

Consistency can be key in Metal, bands are always permitted to change their style, after all it is their art and not our own. The music being at the hands of the creators can often lead to trend followers and… Continue Reading →

The Evil – Evil (Osmose)

2018 has been a big year for all things doom. Sleep, Orange Goblin, Boss Keloid, King Goat, YOB and Ghost have all released some big albums which touch on all aspects of this riff laden monster of a genre. The… Continue Reading →

Whipstriker – Merciless Artillery (Hells Headbangers)

I love it when promo blurb describes an album as “highly anticipated”. Usually I’ve never even heard of the band and any amount of anticipation is probably only felt by the bands mums….. maybe. Not so with these Brazilian Venom… Continue Reading →

Lumnos – Ancient Shadows Of Saturn (Flowing Downward)

This is The first physical release by Brazilian musician Putrefactus after a few digital only ones and as the title suggests this is very much of the cosmic black metal variety. Even from the opening note, there is a huge… Continue Reading →

Armored Dawn – Barbarians In Black (AFM)

So I took a look at that cover artwork and expected something like Tyr or Ensiferum. I read that Armored Dawn are from Brazil, so armed with that extra info changed my guess to folk-tinged metal like fellow South Americans… Continue Reading →
