Cannibal Corpse

Devangelic – Phlegethon (Comatose Music)

It is fair to say that Devangelic’s sophomore release `Phlegethon’ is one heavy album. Meatier than a 48 ounce steak between two giant hams, this is a truly crushing, devastating album. This is a prime cut, if you will, of… Continue Reading →

F.K.U – 1981 (Despotz Records)

If you were lucky enough to hear 2013’s “Rise of the Mosh Mongers” by F.K.U. you know you are in for a retro treat. By retro I do not mean rebranded Trump(ed) up dayglow for Millennials. I mean full on… Continue Reading →

Cannibal Corpse – Red Before Black (Metal Blade)

In the same way as Iron Maiden, Kiss & Motorhead, you know what you’re gonna get with a Cannibal Corpse album. Sadly, like the aforementioned legends ‘Corpse have their detractors, people that criticise the band for their consistency. However there’s… Continue Reading →

Endseeker – Flesh Hammer Prophecy (FDA Records)

Endseeker are a relatively new phenomenon, with just 3 years under their belts, which undoubtedly will be laden with bullets, in keeping with true metal tradition. Endseeker first teased us with the EP ‘Corrosive Revelation’ back in 2014, and subsequently… 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 →

Moss Upon The Skull – Scourge of Ages (S/R)

Belgian death metal? Why, Ambassador, you spoil us. This is the first 6 track EP from the five chaps from Brussels, and they’ve clearly decided that you need to experience them free of any expectations of which type of death… Continue Reading →

Necroblood – Collapse of the Human Race (Iron Bonehead / Amor Fati)

Necroblood’s first full length release Collapse of the Human Race is an absolute tour de force of an album. If wonderfully catastrophic blackened death with a smattering of grindcore thrown in is your thing, then Collapse of the Human Race… Continue Reading →

Obituary – S/T (Relapse Records)

You don’t need me to waffle on about how good Obituary are. Over the past 30 odd years they haven’t made a duff record. Sure some have been better than others but in a similar way to veteran bands such… Continue Reading →

Six Feet Under – Torment (Metal Blade)

For twenty four years Six Feet Under, piloted by Chris Barnes, have been hammering away at our ears with, on the whole, pretty decent groove based death metal – leaving aside the four “Graveyard Classics” albums that were a total… Continue Reading →

Neverlight Horizon – Dead God Effigies (Great Dane Records)

A Belgian death metal band that’s been going since 1999, and I’d never heard of them? How rude! Sent to me by the fine people at French record company “Great Dane Records”, this promo came in a rather nice digipack… Continue Reading →

Sinsaenum – Echoes Of The Tortured (earMUSIC)

If you tot up the amount of bands past and present the sextet of artists this lot have been involved in you are going to hit the 50 mark. Prolific they certainly are and they should be on the whole… Continue Reading →

Blood Red Throne –Union Of Flesh And Machine (Candlelight)

Flying the Norwegian flag for death metal Blood Red Throne have doggedly survived various genre insurgents since their formation and release of their debut album at the turn of the new millennium. Often overlooked even though the band has had… Continue Reading →
