Impending Doom – The Sin and Doom Vol II (Longbranch)

Impending Doom – The Sin and Doom Vol II (Longbranch)

I did not know anything about this band when I requested to give it a spin. The blurb promised a heady mix of Death metal Grind and Hardcore. My interest was piqued. Now I must say having listened to The Sin and Doom Vol ii.. Read More
Thy Art Is Murder – Dear Desolation (Nuclear Blast)

Thy Art Is Murder – Dear Desolation (Nuclear Blast)

Of late the major players within the deathcore scene have been branching out somewhat and have been testing the water with more ambitious song writing that has had a mixed reception within the media and from fans alike, with Carnifex, Whitechapel and Suicide Silence all.. Read More
In Reverence - The Selected Breed (Non Serviam)

In Reverence – The Selected Breed (Non Serviam)

Death metal seems a very appropriate medium for an album about the different stages of the annihilation of the human race, which is the theme of “The Selected Breed”. At the same time it’s not difficult to work out what to expect: thunderously dark drums,.. Read More
Conjonctive – In the Mouth of the Devil (Tenacity Music)

Conjonctive – In the Mouth of the Devil (Tenacity Music)

Conjonctive are a “Blackened Deathcore” outfit born in Nyon, Switzerland in 2007. “In the Mouth of the Devil” is their second release.  They feature two singers Sonia and Randy and guitarists and bassists who have all decided that the usual number of strings is just.. Read More
Aversions Crown - Xenocide (Nuclear Blast)

Aversions Crown – Xenocide (Nuclear Blast)

Stand up and be counted. This grinding deathcore blast from Australia’s Aversions Crown comes with regulation brutality. Whispering tones linger behind the sheer violence and power of “Prismatic Abyss”. Pummelling and rapid fire-drums lead the murderous death growls but with clever breaks and constant drama,..

Carnifex – Slow Death (Nuclear Blast)

Carnifex – Slow Death (Nuclear Blast)

Reading album reviews of the deathcore scene has taken the approach of slating them without justification on both the digital and printed media to the point that it is tedious and serves no purpose to the outlet or the band and labels promoting them. Every.. Read More
Despised Icon – Beast (Nuclear Blast)

Despised Icon – Beast (Nuclear Blast)

Back in 2010 Canadian trailblazers Despised Icon called it quits after their final show in Montreal and it was a major blow for fans of the deathcore scene as arguably the band was at the heart of the genres formation over a decade ago. Reforming.. Read More
Whitechapel - Mark Of The Blade (Metal Blade)

Whitechapel – Mark Of The Blade (Metal Blade)

As stated in the album’s promo information this album marks the ten year anniversary of Whitechapel, a band that has doggedly marched forward with each passing album despite the naysayers. Back in the1980s when thrash first appeared that scene too was criticised, vilified and humiliated.. Read More
Buried Side – Heading to the Light (S/R)

Buried Side – Heading to the Light (S/R)

You don’t normally expect a wispy Middle Eastern section tune to be followed by brutal deathcore, but this is what happens here. In fact a lot happens here. “The Elevation” is an exhilarating mixture of growled ferocity in a Middle Eastern framework with djent and.. Read More

University of Brutality – Worldwide Compilation (Kings Of Decay)

Those of you who are fans of the Brutal Death Metal, Slam, Deathcore and Beatdown sub genres are about to pig squeal in delight, as the sick and twisted minds behind Kings of Decay, Slam Crew World Wide and Brutal Sickness United have come together.. Read More
Make Me a Donut – Bright Side (Tenacity Music)

Make Me a Donut – Bright Side (Tenacity Music)

I suspect I’ve got issues because I’m always wary of albums with nine three/four minute tracks and a thirteen minute track at the end. Seeing the band’s name being written back to front didn’t impress me either, but benefit of the doubt and all that,.. Read More
Hybrid Sheep – Free From The Clutches of Gods (Tenacity Music)

Hybrid Sheep – Free From The Clutches of Gods (Tenacity Music)

Having put out two previous EPs since forming in 2008, ‘Free From The Clutches of Gods’ is the debut full length release of this French band. Described as ‘modern death metal’, there sure is a lot of US-styled deathcore in their sound, so much so.. Read More
