Gods Forsaken – Smells Of Death (Soulseller Records)

A couple of years back I slotted Gods Forsaken’s debut album “In A Pitch Black Grave” into my end of year top 20. It was a classic claw-hammer to the skull of a Swedish death metal album. Pure, undiluted and… Continue Reading →

Pig’s Blood – A Flock Slaughtered (Godz Ov War)

This filthy lot are the biggest misusers of porcine ichor since John Travolta ruined a certain young ladies High School prom over four decades ago. Their debut self-titled album released back in 2017 created a rank stench and a filthy… Continue Reading →

Darkrise – Circle Of Failure (Punishing Records)

Quite why I’ve never come across this Swiss act is puzzling such is their relatively prolific discography over the span of about two decades. Though I will rectify that by investigating their back catalogue forthwith as this sixth release sees… Continue Reading →

Doombringer – Walpurgis Fires (Nuclear War Now)

Most people like their drive to work to be complemented by the radio or probably some album of an easy listening calibre. As one slogs into their daily job pre-coffee and possibly devoid of breakfast there is probably nothing they… Continue Reading →

AntropomorphiA – Merciless Savagery (Metal Blade)

Naked lady on cover and no doubt very cold by the looks of it and plenty more uses of the letter v instead ov f, yep AntropomorphiA are back. It seem like only yesterday since we were discussing Sermon Ov… Continue Reading →

Obscure Infinity – Evocation of Chaos / Into the Vortex of Obscurity (FDA Records)

German Death metal, pure and simple… These guys have been going for a few years and herald an old school approach. Every now and then there are some super cool melodic passages added into the mix. Essentially, a complete package… Continue Reading →

KHNVM – Foretold Monuments Of Flesh (Testimony Records)

International bands are likely to be a topic which I have covered before but alas, let us speak of it again. In the age of the internet whereby a file can be sent instantly to the other side of the… Continue Reading →

The Black Sorcery – Wolven Degrade (Krucyator Productions)

It’s like going back in time. After a few seconds of outright warfare, total unabated breakneck black metal carnage ensues. The sound quality is rotten and dirty. The vocalist hisses down a tube, or it seems like it. The riff… Continue Reading →

God Disease – Drifting Towards Inevitable Death (F.D.A. Records)

Finnish death act God Disease are gruesomely heavy, their brand of death metal is laced with doom corruption as each sprawling behemoth track has suffocating and dense oppressiveness. Added to that you get inhuman vocals, a pulverising drum display that… Continue Reading →

Vircolac – Masque (Sepulchral Voice Records)

I was very taken with the debut EP from this Irish band. Their old school death metal with a large slice of black metal and their own take on how to squeeze melody between the cracks worked well for me,… Continue Reading →

Usurper – Lords of the Permafrost (Soulseller Records)

From the mist-covered eerie at the top of Castle Ave Noctum, Thee Editor sends trained bats bearing lists of albums to be reviewed down to the homes of the loyal staff. Now, being a cove of advanced age, most of… Continue Reading →

Undead Prophecies – Sempiternal Void (Listenable Records)

Death metal, eh? I mean, one minute there you are in a thrash metal t-shirt and drinking cider down the park listening to “Scream Bloody Gore”, you blink, and then the next moment you’re rapidly approaching your mid 40s, and… Continue Reading →
