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 →

Altarage – The Approaching Roar (Season Of Mist)

Those strange nameless figures have emerged from their dungeon prisons to mount their skeletal steeds and gallop spreading terror across the lands of The Basque Country once more. Nope we are not talking about The Blind Dead although did you… Continue Reading →

Hecate Enthroned – Embrace Of The Godless Aeon (M –Theory Audio)

Extreme Metal is a funny term, much like Viking Metal and Alternative Metal it is a bit of a non-genre. By that I mean that it has no real annotations pointing to distinct features. Death Metal, Black Metal or even… Continue Reading →

Horrisonous – A Culinary Cacophony (Memento Mori)

Comprising stalwarts of the Australian underground scene, Horrisonous formed in 2015 and unleashed their first EP of sludgy death metal upon an unsuspecting world a year later. This debut album is awash with the kind of tongue-in-cheek song titles that… Continue Reading →

Malevolent Creation – The 13th Beast (Century Media)

I’m sure all reading this review have at some point in their lives faced bullying, opposition and overall ridicule for their taste in music, the way they present themselves and extra-curricular hobbies, I know I have. Yet sometimes you take… Continue Reading →

Warkunt – Of Ruins and Agony (Great Dane Records)

‘Of Ruins and Agony’ is the début album by this French quintet, and while they may have only been together for 2 years, it would appear they are all rather accomplished musicians with several years of experience under their belts…. Continue Reading →
