Invictus – The Catacombs of Fear (FDA Records)

Wow they are a lot of bands called Invictus! A quick search on Encyclopaedia Metallum unearths 10. Are they all such fans of Matt Damon and rugby I wonder? This particular Invictus are a three piece Death Metal band from… Continue Reading →

Loathfinder / Druj – Aspects Of Oblation (Godz Ov War)

A Polish / US split here I believe. Not that I’m familiar with either band, mind, but let’s have a listen. Poles Loathfinder are first. ‘Soil Of The Starving’ opens up and rages with some ferocious, chaotic death metal howling… Continue Reading →

Reveal! – Scissorgod (Sepulchral Voice)

My first experience with Sweden’s Reveal was putting their debut ‘Nocturne of Eyes and Teeth’ as my number one album of 2011. ‘Scissorgod’ represents their third release with a style now difficult to pin down. Black, death, thrash, even avant-garde,… Continue Reading →

Rudra – Invoking the Gods (Trishul Records)

This is an interesting release from Singaporean Vedic metal band Rudra. The first six tracks are tributes to their influences in the metal world, so there are numbers from Sepultura, Slayer, Black Sabbath, Obituary, Death, and Bathory. The final five… Continue Reading →

Gatecreeper – Deserted (Relapse Records)

Coffins – Beyond the Circular Demise (Relapse Records)

Morast – Il nostro silenzio (Totenmusik / Van)

A morose and atmospheric slab of doomy death here from this German quartet who have tied their second album in thematically with a narrative of “noises inside the head.” New to me as are other bands the quartet currently play… 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 →
