Texas Metal Outlaws – S/T (Heaven & Hell)

This is a Texan super group, I first I thought this was the Texas Metal Legions destined to play Keep It True next year, but it’s not, although some of the same musicians feature. Primarily, it’s a project put together… 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 →

Zeke – Hellbender (Relapse)

Motorhead’s shadow cast long over Lemmy and co’s career. Punk bands especially felt an affinity for the speed fuelled balls out fury the band unleashed.  One band that were certainly ejaculated out of Snaggletooth’s hairy phallus is Zeke. Formed in Seattle… Continue Reading →

Municipal Waste – Slime And Punishment (Nuclear Blast)

Do we really need an introduction to this band? By the time I could do my typical, minimalist outline of the history of the band, their style and whatever else can pad out the initial paragraph, Municipal Waste would have… Continue Reading →

Warfist – Metal To The Bone (Godz Ov War Productions)

Warfist. I won’t lie, not being familiar with the band the first image that came into my head was a load of spotty inadequates, smelling of TCP sat round a table throwing dice and moving miniature wizards about. But no…. Continue Reading →

Prayers Of Sanity – Face Of the Unknown (Rasthilo Records)

Portuguese thrash trio Prayers Of Sanity are a rather fast bunch. Forming in 2007 and having two full length albums already under their belt, packed to the brim with riffs a plenty and the usual staples of thrash (Religion, Politics),… Continue Reading →

Epi-Demic – Malformed Conscience (Horror Pain Gore Death Productions)

This Canadian act has had a couple of releases out previously as my first dabble with their music was via the split they did with Solanum in 2015. Following on from that is this sophomore which is an explosion of… Continue Reading →

Evil Invaders – In For The Kill (Napalm)

Belgian thrash and speed metal four piece Evil Invaders are an in your face bunch. Having been blown away by their debut full length “Pulses Of Pleasure” last year, a stunning display of blistering paced riffery and flashy leads which… Continue Reading →

Solanum – I.T.S.C (HPGD Productions)

When it comes to crossover, historically there seems to have been two approaches. Punks who beef up the riffs and get more metal or metallers who speed up the verses and get more hardcore. I usually preferred the former. Solanum… Continue Reading →

Assassin – Combat Cathedral (SPV)

Blimey – here’s a blast from the past! I remember buying their second LP ‘Interstellar Experience’ (with its dodgy zombie / scarecrow / Wolverine artwork) from Shades in about 1988. Assassin were a bit different to other German bands of… Continue Reading →

Broken Teeth HC – At Peace Amongst Chaos (Nuclear Blast)

This Manchester crew has been fairly busy over the last few years releasing a slew of seven inchers to gain a name for themselves locally mainly but also nationally and beyond our shores due to touring escapades I suspect. Their… Continue Reading →

Gama Bomb – Untouchable Glory (AFM)

Dublin based Gama Bomb have been plying their classic feel good thrash style since the early 2000’s and with four albums behind them, the five piece from the Emerald Isle certainly look to keep going from strength to strength. It’s… Continue Reading →
