Killing Addiction – Omega Factor (Xtreem)

The Florida Death Metal scene is one of those which can boast some titans in the genre. Cannibal Corpse, Obituary, Six Feet Under, Death, Morbid Angel, Atheist and Hate Eternal are all well-known names and have helped define some aspects of the ‘Death Metal Sound’,.. Read More

Gruesome – Twisted Prayers (Relapse)

There’s no school like the old school, or so they say. For me personally I would like to think that this modern age has still given birth to some exceptional bands, granted we may never see anyone reach the dizzy heights of mainstream success like.. Read More
Thunderwar - Wolfpack (Lifeforce Records)

Thunderwar – Wolfpack (Lifeforce Records)

This 5 track EP is the third release by Polish quartet Thunderwar and its rapid no-nonsense songs get to the point with minimal fuss. Opening title track “Wolfpack” has Kamil “Madness” Mandes’s raspy vocals spat out over Paweł “Pavulon” Jaroszewicz’s fast drumming, while Witold Ustapiuk’s.. Read More
Tantal – Ruin (Mazzar Records)

Tantal – Ruin (Mazzar Records)

So this new Tantal album came my way and as I always like to do before I embark on a review, I read what the label/promotions agency have to say about the band. What instantly intrigued (and amused) me about it is that the comparisons.. Read More
Pánico Al Miedo - Formador (Blood Fire Death)

Pánico Al Miedo – Formador (Blood Fire Death)

Pánico Al Miedo are a 4 piece death-thrash hybrid band from Manellu, Catalonia, and like several artists who have featured on this site who hail from this turbulent region, they seem to be channelling the unrest there and creating a formidable musical beast. With a.. Read More

The Grotesquery – The Lupine Anathema And Other Blood-Curdling Tales Of Horror And The Macabre (Xtreem Music)

The Grotesquery is one of my ‘secret bands’. Not too many of my mates have heard of them and yet this band have produced some of the finest horror concept death metal albums that you’ll ever hear. It’s odd that the band aren’t more well-known.. Read More
Skeletal Remains – Devouring Mortality (Century Media)

Skeletal Remains – Devouring Mortality (Century Media)

At what point did Death Metal stop being Death Metal and become Old School Death Metal? Who knows I would guess the transition happened somewhere in the 90s, around about the time that Brutal Death Metal was on its uprising along with a host of.. Read More
Vorbid – Mind (Indie Recordings)

Vorbid – Mind (Indie Recordings)

I have to admit to being surprised that this young Norwegian thrash act has got signed to Indie Recordings so quickly, this coming on the back of me watching their very nervous performance at Bloodstock Open Air in 2017 on the New Blood Stage. However.. Read More
Crone – Godspeed (Prophecy)

Crone – Godspeed (Prophecy)

Whoa ok, I have been listening to this a lot over the last week or so and felt like I had channeled the inner essence of some of the songs on it as far as the dark subject matter was concerned. However just before writing.. Read More
Black Royal – Lightbringer (Suicide Records)

Black Royal – Lightbringer (Suicide Records)

For decades now rock music has divided its genres into slivers so that every specific , particular nuance can be catered to in an ever decreasing insular grouping. Prefixes and suffixes abound and genres get compounded to create Chimera that purport to be the next.. Read More
Unreal Overflows – Latent (Great Dane)

Unreal Overflows – Latent (Great Dane)

I’m not normally bothered about band names but I have to say that this year so far the quality of some of the names has impressed me more than the albums I’ve heard. First there was Questionable Blood Pressure. Now it’s Unreal Overflows, which sounds.. Read More
Der Todesking – Jorg Buttgereit (Arrow)

Der Todesking – Jorg Buttgereit (Arrow)

The king of death resides resplendent on his throne, it will not be too long before you sit at his feet, it could happen in an instant, a heartbeat. It could take a long suffocating agony, the release from which you find yourself begging for... Read More
