The Grotesquery – The Lupine Anathema And Other Blood-Curdling Tales Of Horror And The Macabre (Xtreem Music)

The Grotesquery is one of my ‘secret bands’. Not too many of my mates have heard of them and yet this band have produced some of the finest horror concept death metal albums that you’ll ever hear. It’s odd that the band aren’t more well-known.. Read More
Skeletal Remains – Devouring Mortality (Century Media)

Skeletal Remains – Devouring Mortality (Century Media)

At what point did Death Metal stop being Death Metal and become Old School Death Metal? Who knows I would guess the transition happened somewhere in the 90s, around about the time that Brutal Death Metal was on its uprising along with a host of.. Read More

Commander – Fatalis (The Unbroken Circle) (Black Sunset / MDD Records)

  This nineteen year old quartet are releasing their third album, a decade after their last release. And a fine album it is. Their style of old school death metal filled with some doomy and thrashy elements works well in delivering an album that is.. Read More
Unravel – Eras Of Forfeit (Testimony Records)

Unravel – Eras Of Forfeit (Testimony Records)

Very occasionally, and I mean very occasionally an album appears for review or just to listen to that makes you stop what you’re doing, even taking notes, and pay total and resolute attention. That is exactly what this Australian band has done with their debut.. Read More

Johansson & Speckmann – From The Mouth Of Madness (Soulseller Records)

Want some old school dark death metal? Step right up and have a large slice of this, the fourth album / collaboration between bassist & vocalist Paul Speckmann (Master) and guitarist Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Down Among The Dead Men….pretty much every band). “From The Mouth.. Read More

Squidhead – Cult[ist] (S/R)

Miskatonic University graduates Squidhead are a three-piece who haul from Belgium and have nothing but high praise for the “Great Old One”. Spawned from the depths of Pierre “Pish” Minet, the project was initially a solo endeavour but it has now been blessed by what.. Read More
Septic Tank -  Rotting Civilization (Rise Above)

Septic Tank – Rotting Civilization (Rise Above)

As the old saying goes “A leopard can’t change its spots”. When you apply this to bands and side projects it is mostly true- musicians tend to naturally gravitate towards what they know. In the case of Septic Tank, this saying is a load of.. Read More
Ghastly – Death Velour (20 Buck Spin)

Ghastly – Death Velour (20 Buck Spin)

Although paraded as a death metal band, Ghastly’s ghoulish sound has more than a hallmark of maggot-ridden black metal about it. It’s interesting to read of a recognised affinity with Darkthrone’s “Soulside Journey”, but also with the likes of Execration and Autopsy. This is the.. Read More

Befouled – Refuse to Rot (Great Dane)

Norwegian band Befouled’s death metal style is said to be for fans of Dismember, Entombed, Bolt Thrower, Unleashed and At The Gates amongst others. What I experienced here was death metal at the thrashier end, with drums going thirteen to the dozen, as they blasted.. Read More
Foul Body Autopsy – This Machine Kills Zombies (S/R)

Foul Body Autopsy – This Machine Kills Zombies (S/R)

Okay so it’s no real secret that Death Metal and Horror go hand in hand, if anything I would probably blame Horror for my addiction to this bloodsoaked genre, and vice versa. As my interest in Death Metal subject matter has grown more depraved so.. Read More
Sentient Horror – The Crypts Below (Testimony Records)

Sentient Horror – The Crypts Below (Testimony Records)

Back in 2016 I was lucky enough to get the debut Sentient Horror album “Ungodly Forms” through to review…..and I won’t lie, it made me chub up a bit. The ludicrously good, old school Swedish DM vibe….. expertly replicated by these oiks from New Jersey.. Read More
