The Grotesquery – The Lupine Anathema And Other Blood-Curdling Tales Of Horror And The Macabre (Xtreem Music)

The Grotesquery is one of my ‘secret bands’. Not too many of my mates have heard of them and yet this band have produced some of the finest horror concept death metal albums that you’ll ever hear. It’s odd that… Continue Reading →

Akatharta – Spiritus Immundus (Pulverised Records)

Blimey, this is one scary record. Now, just like I’m not the biggest black metal fan (gloomy, shed burning, badger painted fairies) I’m not the biggest fan of doom metal either. With a few exceptions I tend to find it… Continue Reading →

Massacre – Back From Beyond (Century Media)

This is a band whose name screams forefathers of the American death metal scene, that being the case, they only have two records behind them, although the second effort ‘Promise’ was well “beyond” (couldn’t help it!) their debut ‘From Beyond’… Continue Reading →

King Parrot – Bite Your Head Off (Candlelight)

Candlelight continue their broad genre ranging signings, this time with a blizzard from Oz with links to Blood Duster amongst others so I guessed we weren’t going to be talking gothic metal. Nope, with a charmingly impossible cover, this is… Continue Reading →
