Vampire – Rex (Century Media)

‘Rex’ is a long awaited follow up to 2017’s ‘With Primeval Force’ which developed the band from their debut release. Here on ‘Rex’ I find them going back in the majority to their early sound whilst still retaining those lesson… Continue Reading →

Triptykon with the Metropole Orkest – Requiem (Live at Roadburn 2019) Century Media

30 years in the making and the hugely anticipated ‘Requiem’ is unleashed. ‘Requiem’ was started by the legendary Celtic Frost and finalised into the package that sits before us today by the new generation of Tom G Warrior and his… Continue Reading →

Horisont – Sudden Death (Century Media)

Horisont are a band I have had the pleasure of seeing grow and develop into a diverse and unique act over the last 10 years. I actually purchased their debut at the same time I got fellow retro Swedish band… Continue Reading →

Naglfar – Cerecloth (Century Media)

Classic Swedish melodic black metal here from a band who should really need no introduction. Naglfar burst into being with debut album Vittra in 1995. Around this time, I and no doubt many others were discovering the likes of fellow… Continue Reading →

Havok – V (Century Media)

Colorado thrasher’s Havok are back with their 5th studio release, the appropriately named ‘V’. After “Conformicide”, their 2017 release which was greeted with a mixed reception but delivered with a high intensity touring schedule, ‘V’ sees the band pushing onwards… Continue Reading →

The Alligator Wine – Demons of the Wind (Century Media)

Now I am a big fan of Crocodilians and also of wine. Quids in! Or so I thought…. Alligator Wine are a duo from the Black Forest with not a stringed instrument between them. Drums, synths, organs, percussion. No guitar… Continue Reading →

Heaven Shall Burn – Of Truth & Sacrifice (Century Media)

Not realising that ‘Of Truth & Sacrifice’ was a double album was probably the biggest school boy error I could have made; however, I grabbed the bull by the horns and pressed play, filled with anticipation for the marathon that… Continue Reading →

Lucifer – Lucifer III (Century Media)

Have you ever heard of “Lucifer”? No folks, I don’t mean the medieval Judaeo-Christian bogey man of old worshipped by Ghost, I mean the Scandewegian occult tinged hard rock band! “No”? Well, let me just say, you are wrong on… Continue Reading →

Wolf – Feeding The Machine (Century Media)

Wolf are a band that somehow still sound as fresh and exciting as they always have, many years down the line. They are instantly recognisable, yet play such a traditional form of straight-edged Heavy Metal revered by fans all over… Continue Reading →

Body Count – Carnivore (Century Media)

Many years ago now I went into a local record store and stumbled upon a copy of the 1994 Body Count album, Born Dead. I picked it up with great delight and noted the 90’s Death Metal looking artwork and… Continue Reading →

Beneath The Massacre – Fearmonger (Century Media)

Deathcore, or diet Death Metal as I like to call it, has been a mark upon the Metal world since its inception. My feelings on the genre have gone from love to hate to somewhere in the middle over the… Continue Reading →

Dark Fortress – Spectres From The Old World (Century Media)

No band does fear, misanthropy or creepy, agonising death better than Dark Fortress. If you don’t believe me, check out any of their albums but in particular “Séance” (2006), in my view one of the greatest black metal albums of… Continue Reading →
