Arrogant Destruktor – Commandments Of War And Necromancy (Total Death)

Here’s a nice coincidence; I bought the limited cassette run version of this on spec a while back just because I liked the name, and it’s now getting a CD release. I still know very little about the band other than they appear to be.. Read More

Gutter Instinct – Heirs of Sisyphus (Pulverised Records)

I realised quite quickly that listening to this album from Sweden’s Gutter Instinct was a case of putting in the hard yards. This weighty death metal tome is, as they have it, “another morbid outlook on explicit realities”. It’s not all monotony but equally it.. Read More

Chaos Before Gea – Chronos (Blood Fire Death)

This third album by Chaos Before Gea is a rather mixed bag and by that, I mean the Spanish quintet appear to call on a whole host of influences when styling their sound. Open track the “The Void” starts feeling very rocky with soaring clean.. Read More
