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 →

Into Coffin – Unconquered Abysses (Terror From Hell)

I’m not the sort of person to do things by halves, if I’m into something then I’m into it in a big way. Again, this can be a detriment as I can often times become caught up in my own… Continue Reading →

Cattle Decapitation – Death Atlas (Metal Blade)

Bands can often times linger in the background and then suddenly explode. The danger of this of course is that the bar becomes very highly set thereafter and each release becomes an awaited and anticipated hype that often times won’t… Continue Reading →

Ploughshare – Tellurian Insurgency (I, Voidhanger)

Not, in fact, a crap swinging site for those in the farming community, Ploughshare are a nasty black / death metal band from Australia and are back hot off the heels of their 2018 debut full-length “In Offal, Salvation”,  and… Continue Reading →

Blood Incantation – Hidden History Of The Human Race (Century Media)

New music from Blood Incantation has been eagerly awaited ever since debut album “Starspawn” came out in 2016, announcing itself as one of this decades most pivotal and evolutionary compositions in death metal (alongside their undisputed award for Most Unreadable… Continue Reading →

Cryptic Brood – Outcome Of Obnoxious Science (War Anthem Records)

We all have those funny tales and memories to recount from gigs, and thus I shall regal you with one now. Once upon a time me and a friend decided to visit Berlin to watch Amenra with a show comprising… Continue Reading →

Strigoi – Abandon All Faith (Nuclear Blast)

Not content with being an original member and driving force behind both bona-fide legendary acts Paradise Lost and newer-but-no-less-impressive Vallenfyre, Gregor Mackintosh returns with his post-Vallenfyre outfit, Strigoi. Accompanying him here is the fellow Vallen-fellow, Chris Casket (currently also of… Continue Reading →

Hanging Garden – Into That Good Night (Lifeforce Records)

While this may be the Finnish septet’s sixth album, it’s my second foray into their material, with Riikka Hatakka making the transition to permanent member of the band from Helsinki since the last album and thereby having them incorporate far… Continue Reading →

Barbarian Swords – Totemic Anal Turbofucker (Third-I Rex)

In contrast to the sprawling doom death epics that appeared on the split earlier this year, reviewed by fellow scribe Andrew Doherty (you can read about it here), whose description of slithering deathliness perfectly described those two songs, but here… Continue Reading →
