RDS220 – Hell Is A Truth Seen Too Late (Consouling Sounds)

Naming themselves after the “Soviet RDS-220 hydrogen bomb which is the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated” and with artwork in poppy shape with a scene of trench warfare it’s a case of lest we forget here from this group… Continue Reading →

Bones – Diseased (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Back in 2013 I reviewed Bones’ second album, the more than appropriately titled “Sons Of Sleaze” and  proclaimed it “the rawest slice of punked up crusty death metal I‘ve heard this year”. Well it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling… Continue Reading →

Dispyt – Livsglädje (Elitbolaget)

Dis pyt, dat pyt, any pyt this lot play near is likely to result in a neck wrecked and a pile of bodies on the floor. Puns aside this is serious and full on crust punk from Finland and although… Continue Reading →

Immortal Bird – Thrive on Neglect (20 Buck Spin)

If you’re familiar with the 2015 release ‘Empress/Abscess’ then there is no introduction needed for Illinois’ Immortal Bird. If this is your first encounter with the blackened sludge/crust four piece then you can expect a maelstrom of cross genre brutality… Continue Reading →

Victims – The Horse and Sparrow Theory (Relapse Records)

The Horse and Sparrow Theory is the seventh full length from the Swedish crust punks Victims, in a career spanning over twenty years.  For those who do not have a degree in economics the album title refers to the ‘trickle… Continue Reading →

Goregäng – Neon Graves (Transcending Obscurity)

Crust Punk to me represents the unifier between Metalheads and Punk Rockers. The sheer aggression of Motörhead combined with the likes of Sex Pistols or perhaps for a better example Sham 69 or Crass. It’s a nasty genre devoid of… Continue Reading →

Martyrdöd – Hexhammaren (Century Media)

In a genre with a blueprint as regimented as crust punk/d-beat’s, it’s difficult to see how after 18 years a band with these foundations could continue to keep things fresh, however, here are Martyrdöd doing just that. Returning from the… Continue Reading →

Disfago – Snake.Triangle.Sacrifice (S/R)

This grubby UK outfit’s vitriolic seven inch from 2015 is riddled with vehement chaotic nihilism, an honest slab of discordant mayhem ransacking various genres and this newest offering continues those assertions with an album saturated in old school violence but… Continue Reading →

Finis Omnivm – Cercle (S/R)

Bands that are seen as genre-defying naturally tend to stick in our minds. For me as a complete genre Nazi I strangely adore when bands defy being put into a box because it gives me as a reviewer so much… Continue Reading →

Nightmare A.D. – Phantoms of Our Ruin (Tenzenmen Records)

My knowledge of Cambodian metal can be written on the back of a postage stamp. In fact Nightmare A.D. is the only Cambodian band I could name. What I do know is that Nightmare A.D.’s instigator Mia Priest is a… 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 →

Ulthar – Cosmovore (20 Buck Spin Records)

Everything about this album is gnarly, the artwork, the sound, the vocals, the drums, the guitar tone, the thundering bass; it has that grisly attitude of a grotesquely efficient death metal album yet it is tinged with the essence of… Continue Reading →
