Violation Wound – With Man In Charge (Peaceville Records)

Violation Wound – With Man In Charge (Peaceville Records)

Headed up by Chris Reifert (Autopsy) there is a spattering of releases from Violation Wound who formed in 2014 when I reviewed the bands self-titled debut of which I was very complimentary with its no nonsense skin stripping punk rock. This second full length continues.. Read More
Ilsa – Corpse Fortress (Relapse)

Ilsa – Corpse Fortress (Relapse)

Washington D.C five-piece Ilsa are well versed in the art of doom-death, having cut their teeth on splits with the likes of Hooded Menace, Coffins and Seven Sisters of Sleep. However, the defining characteristics of the band’s previous albums are the overtones of crust punk.. Read More
Ancst – Ghosts of the Timeless Void (Lifeforce)

Ancst – Ghosts of the Timeless Void (Lifeforce)

Hands up those who want a spot of hardcore-infused black metal crust. Well, it’s perpetually gloomy outside so why not? “Ghosts of the Timeless Void” is Ancst’s second full album, supplemented by a number of Eps and split works over their six years of existence... Read More
Antisect – The Rising Of The Lights (Rise Above)

Antisect – The Rising Of The Lights (Rise Above)

Old crustbags never die, it just smells like it. Ah yes Antisect, the original squat the lot Anarcho punks have a hell of a history behind them which stretches right back to 1982 and has somehow resisted and existed and strived to survive through thick.. Read More
Expander – Endless Computer (Nuclear War Now)

Expander – Endless Computer (Nuclear War Now)

Thrash + Nuclear War Now = Atompünk. Well that seems like a perfect genre for this bunch outta Austin Texas. I don’t know about you but a promo picture does speak words and the amount of artists with floppy fringes standing next to a wall.. Read More
Tau Cross – Pillar Of Fire (Relapse)

Tau Cross – Pillar Of Fire (Relapse)

I had been waiting this one very impatiently along with tour dates. When the latter came along there were cries of indignation from lots of people as the UK was not included but the band were quick to say sorry and a second leg, including.. Read More
Expulsion – Nightmare Future (Relapse Records)

Expulsion – Nightmare Future (Relapse Records)

Any band that consists of Matt Olivo (Repulsion), Matt Harvey (Gruesome, Exhumed), Danny Walker (Exhumed, Intronaut, Phobia) and Menno Verbaten (), should be a beast and that is exactly what this debut release is, but I wish it was longer than just short of 14.. Read More
Vallenfyre – Fear Those Who Fear Him (Century Media)

Vallenfyre – Fear Those Who Fear Him (Century Media)

Crust, death, doom, dirt fans rejoice Yorkshire’s finest purveyors of filth Vallenfyre are back with album number three. Really this lot should need no introduction at all. Spearheaded by Gregor Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) and Hamish Glencross (ex My Dying Bride) this reminds us of the.. Read More
Wolfbrigade – Run with the Hunted (Southern Lord)

Wolfbrigade – Run with the Hunted (Southern Lord)

Sweden’s lycanthro-punk legends return after five years with the release of their 9th album (6th under the name Wolfbrigade), ‘Run with the Hunted’. Wolfbrigade have had a colourful history; starting out as Wolfpack, the band eventually changed monikers to avoid association with a neo-nazi prison.. Read More
Rest – S/T (Third I Rex)

Rest – S/T (Third I Rex)

Off to Udine a tranquil looking place in the NW of Italy here and no doubt partly responsible for shattering any peace and quiet in the region we have noise-mongers Rest (certainly not living up to their name) to blame. There’s not a huge amount.. Read More
Teethgrinder – Nihilism (Lifeforce)

Teethgrinder – Nihilism (Lifeforce)

These Dutch noiseniks have only been in existence since 2013 and already they are spewing forth Nihilism as a follow up to “Misanthropy”. (positive chaps eh?) . These guys chew up grindcore, crust and hardcore, gargle black and death and then pick their teeth with.. Read More
Downfall of Gaia - Atrophy (Century Media)

Downfall of Gaia – Atrophy (Century Media)

I saw Downfall of Gaia headlining in 2015. It caught me out a bit as I didn’t really know the band but did find their murky representations interesting. A gloomy tone, accompanied by hard-hitting and indistinct screams, welcome us to the album. The vocals on.. Read More
