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 →

C-4 – Next Issue Of The Rotten World (S/R)

Considering the band name it would be a total cliché to say this one goes off like a bomb but with 6 tracks in less than 13 minutes it is definitely more C-4 semtex than Sinclair C-5 in the speed… Continue Reading →

Paranoid – Heavy Mental Fuck Up (The Sign)

Bands of this ilk are the reason I hurt my arm and damaged my pride 2 weeks ago. I am a portly man of 45 years who still cannot get past the idea that I cannot ride a skateboard. As… Continue Reading →

Born To Murder The World – The Infinite Mirror Of Millennial Narcissism ( Extrinsic Recordings)

When you put three men who have been instrumental in helping shape the landscape of extreme metal in both the U.K. and worldwide, you know the resulting record is not going to pull any punches. Shane Embury, Mick Kenny and… Continue Reading →

Abstracter – Cinereous Incarnate (I, Voidhanger Records)

Secreting from the US this colossally oppressive extreme metal act suffocates the planet with their third auditory excretion that equates to asphyxiation submerged within a vat of corrosive bitumen the moment the album starts with “Nether”. Whilst my superlative ridden… Continue Reading →

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…. Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
