Sol De Sangre / Panico Al Miedo – La Senda de la Muerte (War Anthem Records)

Here’s a little gem. This is a split EP featuring two tracks by  both Colombian Death Metallers Sol De Sangre and Spanish Death-Thrashers Panico Al Miedo with both bands picking a couple of their favourite choice cuts from death metal… Continue Reading →

Devildriver – Outlaws ‘Til The End (Napalm Records)

Dez Fafara doesn’t do things by half, and if the late Neil Armstrong was still with us today, I’m sure he would replicate his famous quote in order to embrace Devildriver’s latest venture, “one small step for man, one giant… Continue Reading →

October 31 – Metal Massacre 31 (Hells Headbangers)

This latest offering from classic heavy metal fanatics October 31 is a slightly different affair to normal. Rather than being a new studio album with their own songs, the group have decided to pay tribute to the legendary heavy metal… Continue Reading →

Ghost – Popestar (Spinefarm)

A cheeky little EP from everyone’s favourite nameless ghouls in conjunction with a string of 41 US dates here. This contains one new track and 4 covers and is certainly a mixed bag of tricks and treats. Ghost have already… Continue Reading →

Finsterforst – YOLO (Napalm)

When is a covers EP not a covers EP? When it’s two EPs really stretching over forty minutes and without a Moonsorrow epic in sight. One part is original songs, one of ‘pop’ covers (half of which I’ve never even… Continue Reading →

Hammercult – Legends Never Die (SPV)

So, if you were asked to name an Israeli metal band, my guess is that about 90% of you would automatically think of Orphaned Land. Well, you can now add Hammercult to your Israeli metal bands of note, with this,… Continue Reading →

Six Feet Under – Graveyard Classics Vol 4 (Metal Blade)

Now under normal circumstances I quite like Six Feet Under. Chris Barnes & his hired hands have produced some pretty decent groove based death metal tunes in their twenty one year history since their debut album ‘Haunted’ BUT what is… Continue Reading →

Ereb Altor – Blut Ilt Traut (Cyclone Empire)

I’ve been a fan of Ereb Altor ever since I reviewed their first album, “By Honour” all the way back in 2008 (Christ, am I that  old?). Mats and Ragnar of Ereb Altor are also in the supremely excellent band… Continue Reading →

Axel Rudi Pell – Game of Sins (SPV)

My journey with ARP started with a metal hammer 7 inch in ’89, the ex-Steeler (Deu) guitarist has made himself part of the establishment via a consistent level of releases over the years as a band of the same name,… Continue Reading →

Power Fuel – Tribute To Slayer (Great Dane)

Power Fuel are a thrash metal band from Picardy in France. This is their third album and for some reason they’ve chosen to release a record consisting of ten Slayer covers…. Now I’m not against cover versions but a whole… Continue Reading →

Godslave – Whatever We Want (Greenzone Music)

Oh Christ! Does the thought of a 6 song EP of Status Quo songs covered by a German thrash metal band appeal to you? What’s that you say? About as much as having your fingers slammed repeatedly in a car… Continue Reading →

GhUSa – 25 Years of Death Metal (Great Dane)

GhUSa hail from France and have been treading the boards of the extreme metal underground since forming in 1989. However they only have one full length album to their name (2006’s ‘Letter to my Son’(s)’), and a number of Eps… Continue Reading →
