This is a compilation of material from a French death metal band that started in 1989 and released a couple of demos and a spilt release. This compilation brings together everything except their first demo. Of the 10 tracks in total, the first trio are.. Read More
Sanctuary – Inception (Century Media)

Sanctuary – Inception (Century Media)

Not a new album – quite the opposite! This is actually how it all started, this is how the band sounded before they were signed, before Dave Mustaine’s mentor-ship, before…to put it into a musical time context, these tracks were actually recorded before fellow Seattlers.. Read More
Soilwork – Death Resonance (Nuclear Blast)

Soilwork – Death Resonance (Nuclear Blast)

This is a very interesting oddity. I thought I owned everything by Soilwork but I hadn’t taken account of the extra tracks, which were added to the Japanese release of “Stabbing the Drama” (2005), “Sworn to a Great Divide” (2007), “The Panic Broadcast” (2010), “The.. Read More

Various Artists - Metal Massacre 14 (Metal Blade)

Various Artists – Metal Massacre 14 (Metal Blade)

If you listened to metal in the 80’s, the metal massacre compilation releases were an essential source of new bands and material coming from various corners of the world, many becoming household names. Metal Blade’s first release in 1982 was ‘Metal Massacre’ and included the.. Read More
Dark Managarm – 2005/2015 A Decade of Terroreign (Mortis Humanae Productions)

Dark Managarm – 2005/2015 A Decade of Terroreign (Mortis Humanae Productions)

One no doubt unintended outcome of this work is that if you show photos of people in corpse-paint over a ten year period, there’s no ageing process. So before I started to listen to this French band’s historical collection, I found myself studying the photos.. Read More
The Damned – Fiendish Shadows & Punk Oddities And rare Tracks (Westworld)

The Damned – Fiendish Shadows & Punk Oddities And rare Tracks (Westworld)

Oh look…it’s your old mates The Damned, back with something…erm…old! Wot?…well you weren’t expecting a new record were ya?

Winterfylleth – The Fathers of Albion An Anthology 2007-2013 (Candlelight)

Winterfylleth – The Fathers of Albion An Anthology 2007-2013 (Candlelight)

While focusing on career retrospectives for likes of Darkthrone and Emperor, it’s easy to forget that there are newer bands, closer to home, building up their own respectable discography right under our noses. Candlelight black metal stalwarts, Winterfylleth, have rapidly become one of the biggest.. Read More
Putrid Offal – Mature Necropsy (Kaotoxin)

Putrid Offal – Mature Necropsy (Kaotoxin)

I like simple stuff. I’m no musician (I think my guitar teacher Jack would agree) and I can’t get into hyper technical metal. Stuff that gets guitar nerds worked up into a frothy mess tends to leave me cold. I appreciate the talent and skill.. Read More
Hooded Menace – Gloom Immemorial (Doomentia)

Hooded Menace – Gloom Immemorial (Doomentia)

Whilst being nowhere near the likes of Nunslaughter in the ‘fuck me, how many releases? How am I gonna ever own all that?’ stakes, Finnish atmospheric doom / death titans Hooded Menace still have a respectable smattering of super-limited edition 7” splits & EPs –.. Read More
October Falls – Kaarna (Debemur Morti)

October Falls – Kaarna (Debemur Morti)

October Falls’ work has always been close to nature. In more recent times, ambient reflection has given way to harshness and fire. “Kaarna” however harks back to acoustic days, giving us an “assemblage from nature mysticism, a sonic walk in the woods, a sacred moment.. Read More
Various Artists - One And All, Together, For Home (Season Of Mist)

Various Artists – One And All, Together, For Home (Season Of Mist)

This is a pretty huge undertaking. The review I mean not the album… Seventeen songs, many of them not short, by a collection of black/pagan metal luminaries brought together by Roman Seyenko of Drudkh with the idea of exploring the cultural musical heritage of their.. Read More
