Death Metal

Decapitated, Dyscarnate and Baest Manchester Academy 3 12/2/19

An evening of brutal, violent and fierce death metal is on the cards tonight and as I walk into the Academy 3 I am hit by a wall of sound, being generated by the first of tonight’s trio of bands…. Continue Reading →

Abyssic – High The Memory (Osmose Productions)

What’s going to make this review weird for me, is that there are only 5 songs, but the album is nearly an hour and a half long, with a couple songs over 20 minutes and the shortest approaching 9, meaning… Continue Reading →

Pernicion – Seek What They Sought (Osmose)

A five track EP for you this time, courtesy of a two-man terror team of British reprobates. Anil Carrier, known probably best for his time as the live drum kit destroyer in Anaal Nathrakh, and Dan Benton on Vocals. It… Continue Reading →

Obscura, Fallujah, Allegaeon & First Fragment – Manchester, Rebellion Bar 7/2/19

After the brutalising five band tornado that hit the Rebellion Bar the previous night it was the turn of a different touring package to obliterate Manchester, as this four band bill was far more technical oriented than the bludgeoning I… Continue Reading →

Menschenfresser – Sterben (Boersma Records)

Roughly translated as ‘Man Eaters’, Menschenfresser are an old school death metal/thrash metal three piece who formed in 2006 and hail from Trier in the depths of the Rhineland in Germany. With two demos, an EP and three full length… Continue Reading →

Refusal – Epitome Of Void (Great Dane Records)

Out of all the Scandinavian death metal scenes Finland has always seemed to have the most violent, the vilest and most repugnant bands to ever come out, and whilst I am new to this Finnish act (they’ve been around since… Continue Reading →

Opprobrium – The Fallen Entities (High Roller)

If you’re anything like me then you’ll enjoy the history of genres and music in general. I love a good discussion on the sort of ‘what came first’ theories, where do genres begin? Why the sudden leap? For example look… Continue Reading →

Diabolical – Eclipse (Indie Recordings)

21 years and four full length releases later, amongst a splattering of EP’s a demo and a live album, sees this Swedish blackened death juggernaut spawn a new creation, namely ‘Eclipse’. Diabolical describe this as a concept album, which reflects… Continue Reading →

Deserted Fear – Drowned By Humanity (Century Media)

Deserted Fear (along with countrymen Chapel Of Disease) are, for my money one of the best death metal bands around. I’ve been a fan since their 2012 Debut “My Empire” and these Germans have gone from strength to strength, never… Continue Reading →

Electrocution – Psychonolatry (Goregorecords)

Genre flooding is nothing new, since the very dawn of recorded music and likely even prior there has been surges and waves of certain styles pummelling the eardrums of listeners like an audible tsunami. Yet the prevalence of this is… Continue Reading →

Sol De Sangre / Panico Al Miedo – La Senda de la Muerte (War Anthem Records)

Here’s a little gem. This is a split EP featuring two tracks by  both Colombian Death Metallers Sol De Sangre and Spanish Death-Thrashers Panico Al Miedo with both bands picking a couple of their favourite choice cuts from death metal… Continue Reading →

Ossuarium – Living Tomb (20 Buck Spin)

Death Metal is by the very nature of its name linked to all things repugnant. Yet does this always have to come from cascading slasher style shock value? Arguably no, the genre may have been well rounded and defined by… Continue Reading →
