Fleshgod Apocalypse – Veleno (Nuclear Blast)

When a friend of mine suggested I give ‘King’ a listen in 2016, as I’d never heard of the Roman trio Fleshgod Apocalypse at the time, I was rather quick to complement him and thank him profusely for the introduction…. Continue Reading →

Sinners Bleed – Absolution (War Anthem Records)

Now there’s lazy and there’s lazy but regardless of (the very good I would expect) reasons behind the 16-year gap between Berlin based Sinners Bleed’s debut album and this their second offering ‘Absolution’, it means the stakes are relatively high… Continue Reading →

Goregäng – Neon Graves (Transcending Obscurity)

Crust Punk to me represents the unifier between Metalheads and Punk Rockers. The sheer aggression of Motörhead combined with the likes of Sex Pistols or perhaps for a better example Sham 69 or Crass. It’s a nasty genre devoid of… Continue Reading →

Full Of Hell – Weeping Choir (Relapse)

Central Pennsylvanian’s Full of Hell have been around for an absolute age (well since 2009) and have popped up on many a supporting bill in the UK (lastly with Immolation earlier this year) amassing a dedicated fanbase and an extensive… Continue Reading →

Entombed – Live Clandestine (Threeman Records)

Some reviews are easier than others, but when you are asked to retrospectively trawl back through the annals of time to offer your thoughts on a live version of what many would consider to be a stone cold classic, genre… Continue Reading →

Assatur – Where Chaos Reigned (Great Dane Records)

French label Great Dane Records have come to notice a few times in the last couple of years and have done a decent job in getting some underground death metal bands some exposure and, true to form, they’ve done it… Continue Reading →

Possessed – Revelations Of Oblivion (Nuclear Blast)

Being responsible for creating a genre is a pretty big burden. People expect a lot from you, and after all why should they not? However often these bands can equally be overshadowed by more contemporary bands or at least those… Continue Reading →

Body Harvest – Parasitic Slavery (Comatose Music)

Seeing home grown talent is always pleasing, and by home grown in this case I mean country grown. There seems to be a good swelling of bands coming from the UK’s underground recently, most notably for me would be Raised… Continue Reading →

Cosmic Putrefaction – At The Threshold Of The Greatest Chasm (I, Voidhanger Records)

Italian multi-instrumentalist and creative force Gabriele Gramaglia, aka G.G. has his hands in many projects, including mastering a handful of releases as well, as his new project Cosmic Putrefaction offers a debut album that is a sonically dense assault. The… Continue Reading →

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 →
