Post Pulse – Halls Of The Damned (Inverse Records)

Post Pulse – Halls Of The Damned (Inverse Records)

This Finnish act has members from a couple of bands that I am not familiar with, namely The Man Eating Tree and Hung, as this project unleashes a debut of epic proportions. The band name may conjure up thoughts of something restrained and lightweight but.. Read More
Suffocation - …of the dark light (Nuclear Blast)

Suffocation – …of the dark light (Nuclear Blast)

Suffocation have returned with their 8th full length album, a pummelling beast of a record, which they have executed with precision and technicality, through Nuclear Blast Records. Suffocation first introduced themselves to us in 1991 with their debut “Effigy of the Forgotten” and not relaxed.. Read More
Entrails - World Inferno (Metal Blade)

Entrails – World Inferno (Metal Blade)

Entrails. It’s perhaps fitting that when I look at my CD rack, they’re the first band to come after “Entombed” in the current A-Z configuration. If you’ve followed their progress since 2010, you couldn’t have failed to have noticed that they’ve essentially ended up with.. Read More
Desultory – Through Aching Aeons (Pulverised Records)

Desultory – Through Aching Aeons (Pulverised Records)

I had a passing affiliation for this Swedish act with the bands “Into Eternity” album in 1993 but the follow up and third albums escaped me for some reason, especially as the debut was a fine display of death metal that sat outside the normal.. Read More
Gods Forsaken - In a Pitch Black Grave (SoulSeller Records)

Gods Forsaken – In a Pitch Black Grave (SoulSeller Records)

Old School Swedish Death Metal. If you’re short on time, you could just read those first five words and have a pretty accurate view of what this album is like. That guitar sound is now so ubiquitous that it usually takes no more than a.. Read More
Maim – Ornaments Of Severity (Soulseller Records)

Maim – Ornaments Of Severity (Soulseller Records)

I remember the first Maim album in 2009, mostly because I thought it had a brilliant title “From The Womb To The Tomb”. The music was bang on too. A mixture of early Dismember and Entrails with a hefty dollop of grease on top. Proper.. Read More
Kalopsia – Angelplague (Horror Pain Gore Death)

Kalopsia – Angelplague (Horror Pain Gore Death)

Right first things first, I thought “kalopsia” would be the name of some sort of bum-disease or something. But no. I was wrong. According to my dictionary in means “a state or delusion in which things appear more beautiful than they really are. As a.. Read More
Moss Upon The Skull - Scourge of Ages (S/R)

Moss Upon The Skull – Scourge of Ages (S/R)

Belgian death metal? Why, Ambassador, you spoil us. This is the first 6 track EP from the five chaps from Brussels, and they’ve clearly decided that you need to experience them free of any expectations of which type of death metal to pigeon hole them.. Read More
Morfin -  Consumed By Evil (F.D.A. Records)

Morfin – Consumed By Evil (F.D.A. Records)

`Consumed By Evil’ is the second full length release from Californian Death Metal stalwarts Morfin, and sounds just like it could have been released in the early 90’s. In fact, if someone had said to me that this album was a re-release of an underground.. Read More
Grog - Ablutionary Rituals (Murder Records)

Grog – Ablutionary Rituals (Murder Records)

It’s been over a quarter of a century since this Portuguese quartet crawled out of the mire and 21 years since they released their début and if this, their fourth album, is anything to go by, the certainly haven’t lost any speed or nastiness. This.. Read More
In Reverence - The Selected Breed (Non Serviam)

In Reverence – The Selected Breed (Non Serviam)

Death metal seems a very appropriate medium for an album about the different stages of the annihilation of the human race, which is the theme of “The Selected Breed”. At the same time it’s not difficult to work out what to expect: thunderously dark drums,.. Read More
AlNamrood - Enkar (Shaytan Productions)

AlNamrood – Enkar (Shaytan Productions)

Metal is a strange beast. What about it touches the hearts and minds of people from every part of the world? More than many forms of music, it transcends race, beliefs and culture, yet still remains a pariah in the eyes of many. Dwelling in.. Read More
