Persefone and Poem - London Underworld, 16/4/17

Persefone and Poem – London Underworld, 16/4/17

After a quick check of the merch stand I was in familiar territory … the pit at the Underworld. I’ve taken to looking at merch stands nowadays for bizarre items. A recent one was Haken coffee, which I resisted at £10 for a small bag,.. Read More
Altar of Betelgeuze - Among the Ruins (Transcending Obscurity)

Altar of Betelgeuze – Among the Ruins (Transcending Obscurity)

A spot of stoner doom is the order of the day from Finland’s Altar of Betelgeuze, whose second album this is after “Darkness Sustains the Silence” from 2014. This is pretty grainy stuff. Downtrodden riffs with death vocals never make for a happy scene. The.. Read More
Obscure Infinity - Dawn of Winter (F.D.A. Rekotz)

Obscure Infinity – Dawn of Winter (F.D.A. Rekotz)

This is a reissue of the German death metal bands debut album, original out on Obscure Domain Productions, an album I actually reviewed 7 years ago too. There are no changes, no fillers, no remastering, it’s simply a re-release. Its old school as you may.. Read More
Rude - Remnants…  (F.D.A. Rekotz)

Rude – Remnants… (F.D.A. Rekotz)

`Remnants…’ is the second full length studio album from Californian crew Rude, and it is quite a bone-crushing release I can tell you! Forget sunshine, forget glamour; this band sound like they live in a cold, dark, filth-smeared wasteland. This, folks, is an output of.. Read More

Fell Ruin - To The Concrete Drifts (I Voidhanger)

Fell Ruin – To The Concrete Drifts (I Voidhanger)

This is apparently the second release from US band Fell Ruin, but the first full length and the first I’ve heard of them. What’s within? Well ‘Respire’ is the acoustic guitar intro which takes route A and simply stops before a couple of solemn drum.. Read More
Haxxan – Loch Ness Rising (Hells Headbangers)

Haxxan – Loch Ness Rising (Hells Headbangers)

What fresh faced devilry do we have here then? Well fresh by name only, the faces behind this recent project are foul and rotting especially that of frontman Killjoy who should need no introduction. His most well-known outfit Necrophagia seem stuck in a bit of.. Read More
Départe – Failure, Subside (Season Of Mist)

Départe – Failure, Subside (Season Of Mist)

Tasmania, somewhat cut off from the rest of the world and with no shortage of angry and extreme musicians it would seem. There definitely seems to be a bit of an underground scene there and it never surprises me when something new turns up as.. Read More
Evil Spirit – Cauldron Messiah (Terror From Hell Records)

Evil Spirit – Cauldron Messiah (Terror From Hell Records)

Let’s start at the intro – ‘Him The Almighty Power’.  Almighty he may be, however in this instance he sounds like a rambling and no doubt cider addled ‘Harry Ramp’ warbling on about fuck knows what before seguing into what, to these ears anyway, sounds.. Read More
Mussorgski – Creatio Cosmicam Bestiae (Godz Ov War)

Mussorgski – Creatio Cosmicam Bestiae (Godz Ov War)

How…? What the..? Where did these guys come from? Ok, ‘this guy,’ more accurately. And the short answer is ‘Poland’ but that’s the answer to a lot of other questions too and the word ‘Poland’ is not really going to explain much about Mussorgski. At.. Read More
ONO - Reconstruction and Synthesis (The House Of What You See)

ONO – Reconstruction and Synthesis (The House Of What You See)

The only Slovakian music I knew about until now was by Abbey ov Thelema, and that’s extreme. If this monster from ONO, the band of a gentleman who operates under the name of Twisted, is anything to go by, this isn’t a country which caters.. Read More

Revocation – Great Is Our Sin (Metal Blade)

Back in 2000, a band called ‘Cryptic Warning’ was formed in Boston, Massachusetts. Inspired by bands such as Metallica and Guns N Roses, this entity went on to record one album but founder David Davidson wasn’t happy with the sound, direction or production despite the.. Read More
