Dreamarcher – The Bond (Indie)

The first bio/info I saw about Dreamarcher said that they were a “blackened progressive metal gem based in Oslo, Norway.” I am fond of weird combination of words, and “gem” together with what went before it got me intrigued right… Continue Reading →

Cave In – Final Transmission (Hydra Head)

Cave In are one of those bands that have managed to divide and confound opinion over the course of their almost 25 years existence as a band from both positive and negative perspectives. With feet in numerous camps from a… Continue Reading →

Full Of Hell – Weeping Choir (Relapse)

Central Pennsylvanian’s Full of Hell have been around for an absolute age (well since 2009) and have popped up on many a supporting bill in the UK (lastly with Immolation earlier this year) amassing a dedicated fanbase and an extensive… Continue Reading →

Numenorean – Adore (Season Of Mist)

Numenoreans are folk of Numenroea – an island in Middle Earth where lived the greatest of men. Yup more Tolkien in metal.  Here though Numenorean are a post (ish) Black Metal band from Calgary. Their debut “Home” in 2016 was a collection… Continue Reading →

NAG – Nagged To Death (Fysisk Format)

Can’t complain, this is the right way to get ‘nagged to death’ especially when the means of doing so is by delivering us a nice slab of vinyl. It was a timely arrival too as I have been reading A… Continue Reading →

Baptists – Beacon of Faith (Southern Lord)

All Pigs Must Die – Hostage Animal (Southern Lord)

For those unfamiliar with this act it contains a raft of notable personnel, namely Ben Koller (Converge), Matt Woods and Adam Wentworth (Bloodhorse), Kevin Baker (The Hope Conspiracy) and Brian Izzi (Trap Them). I have skirted the fringes of All… Continue Reading →

Full of Hell – Trumpeting Ecstasy (Profound Lore)

It’s been four years since “harsh grinding death” quartet Full of Hell released ‘Rudiments of Mutilation’ and their sound has evolved and transformed into a beast that is almost unrecognisable to where they first started. Full of Hell have, of… Continue Reading →

Sibiir – S/T (Fysisk Format)

This relatively new outfit from Norway released a venomous EP in 2015 by the title of “Swallow & Trap Them” melding black metal vitriol with post hardcore nihilism as the band releases a debut full length that appeared during the… Continue Reading →

Pigs – Wronger (Solar Flare)

I like pigs. Lovely oinky creatures, they also taste nice. After listening to the 2nd album from this New York trio, I think the band are OK too. Pigs consists of Unsane’s Dave Curran, Freshkills’ Jim Paradise, and Converge producer… Continue Reading →

Enabler – Fail To Feel Safe (Century Media)

‘Fail To Feel Safe’, the new effort from Ohio based hardcore/metal act Enabler is released through Century Media on August 7th. Written and performed entirely by front man Jeff Lohrber; the album is a succinct display of top quality musicianship… Continue Reading →
