Varus – A New Dawn (S/R)

Varus released their debut back in 2014 but aside from re-recording a track in the meantime not a lot has been heard from them since. But with a bit of a line-up shuffle and a new-found energy, this Symphonic Folk… Continue Reading →

The Black Dahlia Murder – Verminous (Metal Blade)

The Black Dahlia Murder have been doing their thing since 2001. I’ve always liked their music but have somehow managed to miss them live, which is my doing not theirs because they’ve played in the UK umpteen times including UK… Continue Reading →

Chronicle – Demonology (Mighty Music)

Chronicle are a young Danish four piece, whose debut album “Primal Fear” appears to have slipped under my radar since its release in 2015. Having now investigated, it seems that I’ve missed out on some technical yet catchy melodic death… Continue Reading →

Across The Shade – Hope (S/R)

Polish Melodic Death Metal quartet Across The Shade come at us with a simple named offering for their debut full-length release. “Hope” is an 8 track, sub-40 minute Melodic Death Metal attack which you could easily mistake for being something… Continue Reading →

Exmortus – Legions Of The Undead (M-Theory Audio)

Catching attention supporting Obituary on these shores in 2018 and with The Sound Of Steel resonating in our ears this Californian Melodeath, thrash act are having a bit of fun and letting their hair down with this stop-gap EP. This… Continue Reading →

Sarke – Gastwerso (Indie Recordings)

Album number 6 for Sarke and they don’t seem to be letting up. The past black and roll has given way to more of an epic groove driven sound that still drips icy evilness from every pore.  The fact that Sarke… Continue Reading →

Equilibrium – Renegades (Nuclear Blast)

Equilibrium are on their own musical journey – an epic one obviously, but it’s one that is increasingly keen to defy musical tags and labels. It seemed to start with 2016’s “Armageddon”, which saw them nudging slightly away from their… Continue Reading →

Forever Still – Breathe In Colours (Nuclear Blast)

Forever Still have flourished since they burst out of the blocks in 2013, and this Danish animal has established a solid and robust fan base within their genre, partly to their unwavering touring commitments and prestigious support slots with behemoths… Continue Reading →

Children Of Bodom – Hexed (Nuclear Blast)

It’s been 3 years since the release of ‘I Worship Chaos’, the first CoB album I heard, and admit to still being remiss about going back to listen to their first 8 albums. But then it doesn’t appear that they… Continue Reading →

Craving – By the Storm (Apostasy Records)

I first heard Craving from Germany earlier this year on Sex to 9 with Maria on TotalRock and promptly got At Dawn their 2013 album. Craving mix up Power metal, Folk Metal and Melodic Death/ Black Metal to create a… Continue Reading →

Equilibrium – Armageddon (Nuclear Blast)

With every release it astounds me even more how effortlessly Equilibrium straddle that gap between Pagan/Folk Metal and Melodic Death Metal whilst always staying so unique. Years ago it was a sizeable void between the two styles before Equilibrium bridged… Continue Reading →

Mindwarp – A Cold Black Day (Great Dane)

Having not released  full length album since way back in the previous millennium, Swiss four piece Mindwarp have catapulted themselves back into the scene with their latest and second ever album A Cold Black Day, a wholesome, quintessentially heavy release…. Continue Reading →
