Jordablod – The Cabinet of Numinous Song (Iron Bonehead)

Messy, chaotic, raucous, rampant and encrusted with filth. Sounds like my kinda party, and also the kind of party that Iron Bonehead have been hosting for years. No surprise then that Jordablod from Malmo have come to the gathering with… Continue Reading →

Defiled – Infinite Regress (Season Of Mist)

I initially thought that this Japanese band was familiar to me only to find that I have not heard them before but after this album I will be checking out their back catalogue. This album captures the essence of brutal… Continue Reading →

Impiety – Verses All Gods (Evil Dead Productions / Shivadarshana)

It seems a fair few bands are crawling out the woodwork having not released a full-length album for a fair while this year and it is a pleasure to welcome back Singapore war machine Impiety who we last heard from… Continue Reading →

Deadspawn – Pestilence Reborn (S/R)

I do like death metal albums that catapult the listener into a frenzied and demented assault the moment they start, as this US act does exactly that with their debut album following on from two EPs released five years ago… Continue Reading →

Blightmass – Severed From Your Soul (Great Dane Records)

It’s kinda fitting that this shall be my last review for the year. Granted the name of the band has naught to do with the current time of year or that there appears to be a blight of sense around… Continue Reading →

Horrified – Sentinel (Testimony Records)

Although British, Horrified wasn’t a name known to me either through recordings or live appearance. I discovered that “Sentinel” is their second EP to go with three full albums in their seven years of existence. Complex riffage with a certain… Continue Reading →

Rattenfänger – Geisslerlieder (Dark Essence Records)

I absolutely loved this Ukrainian band’s debut release, “Epistolae Obscurorum Virorum”, enough to get the vinyl and a shirt a few years ago or so when I heard it. The band maybe Ukrainian (with members of Drudkh at the helm)… Continue Reading →

Nihilism – Apocalyptic Fate (Great Dane Records)

It’s very unusual for most French acts to stick to the norm when writing and recording albums as this deadly death metal outfit sticks to core credentials of the genre resolutely, without treading familiar ground. Indeed this band owes large… Continue Reading →

Revel in Flesh – The Hour of the Avenger (War Anthem Records)

Album number five, Revel in Flesh (RIF) still make an unearthly racket! For those who made it to their UK show of recent times you would have witnessed a really cool proper death metal guitar tone, a howling old school… Continue Reading →

Hereza – Death Metal Drunks (Godz Ov War)

I definitely enjoyed this Croatian bands previous album which I reviewed for the site and stated categorically that this band plays filth encrusted deathliness and since that album it is clear the band has stayed completely within that sphere on… Continue Reading →

Nightbearer – Tales Of Sorcery And Death (Testimony)

Metal is nerd music, I don’t think I fully trust ‘cool’ Metalheads. That sounds stupid I know because everyone’s description of ‘cool’ differs but what I mean is most people into Metal are into other extracurricular nerd hobbies, whether that… Continue Reading →

Undead – Existential Horror (Godz Ov War)

There’s no shortage of Undead bands in the metal graveyard, its an obvious name and there’s no less than 14 bunches of ghouls using the moniker according to Metal Archives. This is an international group whose members are largely made… Continue Reading →
