Deceased – Ghostly White (Hells Headbangers)

Deceased – Ghostly White (Hells Headbangers)

Deceased have been plying their morbid trade on official releases since way back in 1991. It’s been a long, long time since their last full length album, the excellent “Surreal Overdose” back in 2011, but I suspect not even death itself would be able to.. Read More
Druj – Chants To Irkalla (Godz Ov War)

Druj – Chants To Irkalla (Godz Ov War)

Irkalla is the ancient Mesopotamian underworld and when they are not at home in Anchorage Alaska it is where Druj dwell. I’m not sure if there is a huge difference between the locations having the idea form in my head that both are quite cold.. Read More
C-4 – Next Issue Of The Rotten World (S/R)

C-4 – Next Issue Of The Rotten World (S/R)

Considering the band name it would be a total cliché to say this one goes off like a bomb but with 6 tracks in less than 13 minutes it is definitely more C-4 semtex than Sinclair C-5 in the speed stakes. These Polish grind bastards.. 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
Born To Murder The World – The Infinite Mirror Of Millennial Narcissism ( Extrinsic Recordings)

Born To Murder The World – The Infinite Mirror Of Millennial Narcissism ( Extrinsic Recordings)

When you put three men who have been instrumental in helping shape the landscape of extreme metal in both the U.K. and worldwide, you know the resulting record is not going to pull any punches. Shane Embury, Mick Kenny and Drunk are “Born To Murder.. Read More
Ultra-Violence - Operation Misdirection (Candlelight Records)

Ultra-Violence – Operation Misdirection (Candlelight Records)

While the Italians have labelled themselves as a thrash band, the first thought that came to my mind upon seeing the Ed Repka cover was Death, and by the time Loris Castiglia was halfway through singing “Cadaver Decomposition Island”, I must admit that I could.. Read More
Lurk – Fringe (Transcending Obscurity)

Lurk – Fringe (Transcending Obscurity)

To be considered genre-defying is probably the greatest accolade for any artist, I have talked about uniqueness in my reviews before and how although it may seem obvious to say it’s always the solitary bands that stick with us. In an age where you can.. Read More
Nocturnal Breed -  The Whiskey Tapes Germany (Folter Records)

Nocturnal Breed – The Whiskey Tapes Germany (Folter Records)

This here is one of those releases that the band describe as ‘for the fans’, the die hard fans describe as ‘rare and unreleased’ and the rest of us describe as an ‘odds n sods’ collection. As such it’s pretty impossible to review if you’re.. Read More
Killing Addiction - Omega Factor (Xtreem)

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)

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
