Janvier – S/T (Wolfspell)

Janvier – S/T (Wolfspell)

Dunno but I always find it a little…well, humbling when a band sends in a full, beautifully designed digipak CD of their debut EP release. It at least should give the reviewer pause to think about what this music means to the artist. The artists.. Read More

Mitochondrion – Antinumerology (Krucyator Productions)

Not a new release, fans of this Canadian black, death war machine have learnt to be patient as the band certainly do not work anywhere near as fast as they play. What we have here is a CD version of the 2013 release which originally.. Read More

Seer – Vol. III & IV: Cult of the Void (Art of Propaganda)

It seems like only a few months ago that I was reviewing the first album by Canadian venturers into the outer darkness Seer, but a check on the clock shows that it was in fact closer to a year and a half since ‘Volume 1.. Read More
Dead Asylum - Death Always Wins (S/R)

Dead Asylum – Death Always Wins (S/R)

Vancouver’s Dead Asylum don’t pull their punches. Formed in 2011 and releasing their debut full length in 2013, the four piece bring a blend of groove metal, death metal and thrash metal to the table and it is rather delicious sounding. For lack of a.. Read More
Unleash The Archers – Apex (Napalm)

Unleash The Archers – Apex (Napalm)

Still resolutely having nothing to do with peach schnapps or BBC Radio 4, Canadian Metallers Unleash The Archers unleash (obviously…) their much anticipated fourth album. Ready to pound and plunder in equal measure, the band continue to straddle Metal territory somewhere between Battle Beast and.. Read More
Völur – Ancestors (Prophecy)

Völur – Ancestors (Prophecy)

“They have an umlaut they must be heavy” observed a friend on mention of these Canadians. See, this is a preconception that bands should observe before unnecessarily cladding themselves with such metal signatures. Apart from sharing country of origin and said sigil though, Voïvod they.. Read More
Kobra and the Lotus – Prevail I  (Napalm)

Kobra and the Lotus – Prevail I (Napalm)

Last November I had the pleasure of interviewing Kobra when she rolled into Manchester with Delain, Evergrey and, of course, the rest of Kobra and the Lotus. During that interview we discussed their forthcoming album and she revealed that although it was originally scheduled to.. Read More
Epi-Demic – Malformed Conscience (Horror Pain Gore Death Productions)

Epi-Demic – Malformed Conscience (Horror Pain Gore Death Productions)

This Canadian act has had a couple of releases out previously as my first dabble with their music was via the split they did with Solanum in 2015. Following on from that is this sophomore which is an explosion of thrash and crossover with a.. Read More
Infernal Majesty – No God (High Roller Records)

Infernal Majesty – No God (High Roller Records)

Blimey, here’s a band with a history. These Canadian thrashers are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year. Thirty years…..what were you doing thirty years ago? Chances are you weren’t even alive. Well these Canucks were churning out quality thrash metal in that peculiarly aggressive Canadian.. Read More
The Void – Jamie Gillespie & Steven Kostanski (Signature Entertainment)

The Void – Jamie Gillespie & Steven Kostanski (Signature Entertainment)

Although there’s no shortage of modern day horror films and the genre is fairly healthy I am sure many of us who lived through the golden era (the 80’s for me) find themselves a bit jaded with all the remakes and lack of inventiveness and.. Read More
Danko Jones - Wild Cat (AFM)

Danko Jones – Wild Cat (AFM)

Radio host, Rock and metal columnist, Spoken word enthusiast, Danko Jones is many things, but the most important thing in this particular area of interest currently, is a hard rock magician. The Ontarian frontman and his three piece have been slinging their brand of no.. Read More
Torrefy - The Infinity Complex (S/R)

Torrefy – The Infinity Complex (S/R)

Canadian thrashers, Torrefy have released their second full length and an interesting listen it is too. What we have is a clever blend of thrash and groove that is blackened up just enough to give it an edge that’s pretty darn infectious. The musicianship is.. Read More
