Beneath The Massacre – Fearmonger (Century Media)

Deathcore, or diet Death Metal as I like to call it, has been a mark upon the Metal world since its inception. My feelings on the genre have gone from love to hate to somewhere in the middle over the… Continue Reading →

Suicide Silence – Become The Hunter (Nuclear Blast)

It’s probably not fishing in a hyperbolic pond to suggest that Suicide Silence, since their inception way back in 2002, have undergone what could best be described as a number of anus horribilis in recent times. But let me cleave… Continue Reading →

Thy Art Is Murder, Carnifex, Fit For An Autopsy, Rivers Of Nihil, I Am – Leeds University Stylus 28/1/20

This was my fourth gig of 2020 and I doubt that there’ll be many touring packages that will be as brutal as this five band rampage that laid Leeds academia to waste. Transferring from the cold brisk night to the… Continue Reading →

Despised Icon – Purgatory (Nuclear Blast)

This is a strange one and I tell you why. It’s strange because there is much mumbling, tutting, sideways looks, eye rolling, slagging off, looking down at etc. etc. of the genre known as Deathcore. What is Deathcore may you… Continue Reading →

Rings Of Saturn – Gidim (Nuclear Blast)

Do you know what I used to hate, conspiracy theories. Yet contradictory to this I’ve always had a fascination with aliens and peoples encounters with them. Nowadays I’m pretty well into the idea of conspiracies that’s not to say I… Continue Reading →

Fit For An Autopsy – The Sea Of Tragic Beasts (Nuclear Blast)

Despite a revolving door of vocalists, New Jersey’s Fit For An Autopsy, have been around since 2008 and have managed to generate a lot of positive ‘buzz’ (I think that’s the lexicon the youth of today use?) during their tenure… Continue Reading →

Empyreal Vault – S/T (Great Dane Records)

If you had told me a couple or three years ago that Deathcore would see a resurgence and on top of that become palatable I would have laughed in your face. Yet here we are, a new age of Deathcore… Continue Reading →

Carnifex – World War X (Nuclear Blast)

I have a strange relationship with Deathcore, a lot of bands from this genre merely came across to me as cheap Death Metal, and in fact most still do. Nevertheless Whitechapel appeared to me as something else, and for a… Continue Reading →

Pesterous Mind – Halluci. Nation (Boersma Records)

For some reason this German act is tagged as being deathcore and whilst there are tenets of that genre this second album is closer to death metal overall. The overriding deathcore facet lies within the vocals that possess that deep… Continue Reading →

Whitechapel – The Valley (Based On True Events) (Metal Blade Records)

I was surprised to see that it has been three years since this US deathcore outfits last album, “Mark Of The Blade”, an album I particularly enjoyed due to its evolution into realms not touched on prior albums, such as… Continue Reading →

Obscura, Fallujah, Allegaeon & First Fragment – Manchester, Rebellion Bar 7/2/19

After the brutalising five band tornado that hit the Rebellion Bar the previous night it was the turn of a different touring package to obliterate Manchester, as this four band bill was far more technical oriented than the bludgeoning I… Continue Reading →

Psycroptic, Aversions Crown, Within Destruction, Hadal Maw, Hollow World Manchester – Rebellion Bar 6/2/19

When I saw this five band bill I couldn’t believe the brutality yet variation as four of the bands are from Australia (and came on the back of seeing the Aussie duo Parkway Drive and Thy Art Is Murder the… Continue Reading →
