Body Harvest – Parasitic Slavery (Comatose Music)

Seeing home grown talent is always pleasing, and by home grown in this case I mean country grown. There seems to be a good swelling of bands coming from the UK’s underground recently, most notably for me would be Raised… Continue Reading →

Vltimas – Something Wicked Marches In (Season Of Mist)

Supergroups are a funny thing, I always feel like they go either one of two ways. Either they are a positive collaboration of talented individuals or they are a somewhat manufactured ensemble thrust unwillingly upon the world. I think this… Continue Reading →

Aborted & Cryptopsy – Manchester Rebellion 1/12/18

Due to the gridlocked, stagnant traffic through Manchester City Centre, possibly due to the Manchester City post-match traffic, or even just festive commuters, it took me 95 minutes to travel the last 4 miles to the venue, thus missing Unfathomable… Continue Reading →

Solium Fatalis – Genetically Engineered to Enslave (Wicked Music Records)

This is the fourth album by this American quartet hailing from New Hampshire, and no, I hadn’t heard of them before the CD landed on my desk either. After a couple of rapid drum rolls by Jeff Saltzman, “Threshold” has… Continue Reading →

Scalpel – Methods To Delusion (S/R)

Surprisingly there is only one band called Scalpel that I could find on my research into this US band and let’s face it that medicine, science, technology has given metal a wealth of band names. This is their second album… Continue Reading →

Decrepit Birth – Axis Mundi (Agonia Records)

Death Metal – don’t you just love it? For a genre that seemed to be dead and buried back in the late 90s – drowning in an obsession with sweep-picking, grunting and triggered, plasticky gravity blasts – at the start… Continue Reading →

Serocs – …And When The Sky Was Opened (Comatose)

Since 2009 Serocs have been generating quite a buzz on the death metal underground. With two EPs and now three full length albums under their belt you could never accuse the band of being slackers. Their work rate is even… Continue Reading →

Firespawn – Shadow Realms (Century Media)

Sweden is well renowned for producing some of the finest death metal the world has to offer and five piece Swedish Death super group Firespawn are no exception to the rule. Consisting of former members of Entombed A.D, Aeon and… Continue Reading →

Cryptopsy – The Book of Suffering -Tome 1 (S/R)

Death metal heavyweights Cryptopsy return to form with their fantastic new EP The Book of Suffering (Tome 1), which is nothing short of a pure, unadulterated audio assault that takes no prisoners. If you prefer your death to focus much… Continue Reading →

Incinerate – Eradicating Terrestrial Species (Comatose Music)

Seven years on from the bands second album – ‘08s ‘Anatomize’ – Incinerate are back, filling our festering lug’oles with their brutal death metal. Now, seven years might not be a long time between records…..if you’re fucking Rush, but for… Continue Reading →

Nader Sadek – The Malefic: Chapter III (S/R)

It’s always interesting to see what multi international, extreme metal band Nader Sadek are going to come up with next. This is a group who change musicians and vocalists with each phase of their career and this time around replacing… Continue Reading →
