Arroganz - Erzketer (FDA Records)

Arroganz – Erzketer (FDA Records)

A bit of a short one for you this time. Arroganz, the German trio, released their “Primitiv” album back in 2017, which I awarded then an 8/10, saying at the time, “…this has the superficial sound of a band that’s going for the bludgeoning approach,.. Read More
Aeternus – Heathen (Dark Essence Records)

Aeternus – Heathen (Dark Essence Records)

In common with their name, Aeternus seem to have been around forever. The lynchpin is Ares, who founded the band from Bergen in 1993 and has been the epicentre of a band, which has historical and current links with many of the key names in.. Read More
Solium Fatalis - Genetically Engineered to Enslave (Wicked Music Records)

Solium Fatalis – Genetically Engineered to Enslave (Wicked Music Records)

This is the fourth album by this American quartet hailing from New Hampshire, and no, I hadn’t heard of them before the CD landed on my desk either. After a couple of rapid drum rolls by Jeff Saltzman, “Threshold” has Jim Gregory and Ryan Beevers.. Read More
Weak Aside – Forward Into Darkness (FDA Records)

Weak Aside – Forward Into Darkness (FDA Records)

Another good ‘un from FDA Records here with the third full length from Germany thrashy death machine Weak Aside. I wasn’t familiar with the lads prior to receiving this but a bit of a blast through in the car on the way to and from.. Read More
Piah Mater – The Wandering Daughter (Code 666)

Piah Mater – The Wandering Daughter (Code 666)

I always finding it disconcerting when an album starts with three minutes of acoustic progressive ambience – quite sophisticated actually – and immediately changes tack and goes into death metal vibes. I won’t hold this against Piah Mater specifically, whose second album this is, as.. Read More
Binah - Phobiate (Osmose)

Binah – Phobiate (Osmose)

To play live or not that is the question, artists not choosing to play their music in a live setting is no new idea. Rather famously the Black Metal scene is littered with solo projects and underground bands not wishing to venture out into the.. Read More
Blood Of Serpents - Sulphur Sovereign (Non Serviam Records)

Blood Of Serpents – Sulphur Sovereign (Non Serviam Records)

Often a sophomore album will be a marginal evolution from what came before. There are notable exceptions where a band tear up the script and start again completely; Darkthrone being an obvious candidate. Blood Of Serpents haven’t exactly thrown away the rule book here, but.. Read More
Sepulcher – Panoptic Horror (Edged Circle Productions)

Sepulcher – Panoptic Horror (Edged Circle Productions)

This Norwegian bands logo takes some deciphering as it appears that scant information is known about their members though they have released a debut titled “Mausoleum Tapestry” in 2015 which I’ve not heard. For 2018 the band has released a stripped back album of raw,.. Read More
Malthusian – Across Deaths (Invictus)

Malthusian – Across Deaths (Invictus)

Well let’s face it, this was never going to be pretty. Irish extremists Malthusian more than proved themselves with 2015 EP ‘Below The Hengiform’ as well as at various live eviscerations. They have been quiet for a while but now they are back, armed with.. Read More
Terrible Claw – Sickening Annihilation (S/R)

Terrible Claw – Sickening Annihilation (S/R)

Sometimes, all you need is straight forward Death Metal. Sure, melodic, brutal and technical variants do the job with their take on one of the most diverse genres in music but stripping all that variety away and going back to the basics is needed to.. Read More
Aborted – TerrorVision (Century Media)

Aborted – TerrorVision (Century Media)

Band names in Metal are always something to stir up a little bit of shock, laughter or amazement in the workplace. The general conversation being something along the lines of “so who are you going to see tonight?” this will be followed by a pause.. Read More
Siege Of Power – Warning Blast (Metal Blade)

Siege Of Power – Warning Blast (Metal Blade)

I’d been looking forward to this!! Siege Of Power have just unleashed what is probably the most aptly titled debut album of the year with “Warning Blast”. Who is Siege Of Power? Well my young Padawan….allow me to enlighten you. The band first came into.. Read More
