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)

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 →

Rogash – Malevolence (War Anthem)

Formed in 2009 in the far reaches of Jena, Eastern Germany, Rogash are a five piece band who deliver a crushing style of death metal which seems to bridge the gap between the American and Scandinavian styles of playing this… Continue Reading →

Antropofago – Aera Dementiae (Kaotoxin)

Whenever I get French extreme metal bands to review my first thought is to throw away the rule book and await the twisted ingenuity that often comes with them. However this death metal project rests firmly on solid tested ground… Continue Reading →

Abhorrent Deformity – Entity Of Malevolence (Comatose Music)

Hailing from North Carolina and forming in 2013, Abhorrent Deformity are the latest of a series of explosive sounding brutal death metal bands who are cropping up and making waves with their relentless and uncompromising approach. Consisting of members who… Continue Reading →
