Temple of Dread – Blood Craving Mantras (Testimony)

This is a German Death metal band whom have a remarkable sound and presence, like the masters Death, Benediction and Obituary. References also include Morgoth, but hey, you get the picture. Temple of Dread started last year when Ex-Slaughterday member… Continue Reading →

Armageddon Death Squad – Necrosmose (Great Dane Records)

This debut effort by the French death metallers first materialised towards the latter half of 2018 as an independent release but having signed to Great Dane it has got a second push to garner more attention which it should rightly… Continue Reading →

Epitaphe – I (Aesthetic Death)

Nothing in the world of Death Metal, or Metal for that matter surprises me any more, sad I know. Yet when you are so obsessed with something you can’t help but foresee every possible outcome, whether it be awful Metal… Continue Reading →

Tomb Mold – Planetary Clairvoyance (20 Buck Spin)

The next big thing. A phrase that gets bandied about far too much, bringing with it a curse and the inevitable tall poppy syndrome that follows.  Since their inception in 2016 and the release of “Primordial Malignity” the following year, Toronto’s… Continue Reading →

Wormed – Metaportal (Season Of Mist)

Technical Death Metal has a strange history some love it, others hate it. It’s early days were steeped in impressive musicianship which left a lot of people bewildered, the likes of Atheist, Cynic and Death being among the biggest driving… Continue Reading →

Age Of The Wolf – Ouroboric Trances (Aural Music)

Let’s be frank here if I were to say Stoner, Sludge, Doom Metal what would your first thoughts be aside from naming checking 100 or so bands in this genre? Brown notes? Grimy basement venues with a bunch of other… 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 →

Raised By Owls – Dreadful (S/R)

Much like the title of this album, things recently (outside of the world of music) have been pretty dreadful. Politicians playing hot potato with the country’s economic and geopolitical standings and future, abnormal weather patterns a plenty with no consistency… Continue Reading →

Undead Prophecies – Sempiternal Void (Listenable Records)

Death metal, eh? I mean, one minute there you are in a thrash metal t-shirt and drinking cider down the park listening to “Scream Bloody Gore”, you blink, and then the next moment you’re rapidly approaching your mid 40s, and… Continue Reading →
