The Committee – Utopian Deception (Folter Records)

I admit I got this to review because my first choice was taken and I’d never heard of this mysterious international collective. Still, anything to help out and prevent handbag fights between the Ave Noctum scribes. Wasn’t too keen on… Continue Reading →

Wardaemonic – Acts Of Repentance (Transcending Obscurity)

Not being familiar with this lot from Australia other than knowing they have put out a few albums, I was kind of expecting some rabid bestial filth somehow. What I got however whilst no less aggressive was…more focussed. The album… Continue Reading →

Maeskyyrn – Interlude (Hypnotic Dirge)

Ooo, here’s an oddity. This is the debut full length by Quebec based black metal band Maeskyyrn, but I have to say it doesn’t at first sight seem to fit in with the stuff I usually listen to from that… Continue Reading →

Capilla Ardiente – The Siege (High Roller Records)

Over five years ago I wrote these words on this very site “Capilla Ardiente (Burning Chapel) hail from Chile, play doom, and readily admit to being inspired by those far more European veterans Candlemass” Well, now in 2019, both Capilla… Continue Reading →

Sins Of The Damned – Striking The Bell Of Death (Shadow Kingdom)

Sins Of The Damned from Santiago, Chile, are a speed metal band, teetering on thrash formed just five years ago. After three demos and a split, this is their debut and on Shadow Kingdom Records no less, a label who… Continue Reading →

Prezir – As Rats Devour Lions (Godz OV War Productions)

Prezir are relatively new to the metal community, formed in 2016, with their name translating to the literal meaning of ‘Contempt’ in Serbian. When thinking of death metal juggernauts, Milwaukee isn’t one of your classic destinations to spawn a ravenous,… Continue Reading →

Nocturnal Graves – Titan (Season Of Mist)

Despite (or because of) the presence of a couple of past/present writing and playing members of Destroyer 666 I came into this album with zero preconceptions beyond the fact that it would be hard as nails and without compromise. As… Continue Reading →

Destroyer 666 – Call Of The Wild (Season Of Mist)

I think it’s fair to say by now that Destroyer 666 are the heavy metal epitome of what does not kill you makes you stronger. Whatever you think of their ultra alpha male tribal/gang philosophy, 2017 showed how hard they… Continue Reading →

Nihil Eyes – Black Path (S/R)

As a patriotic sort, I always get excited when a new UK death metal band sticks its head up. Now I appreciate that there are loads new bands from all over the world releasing albums left, right and centre but… Continue Reading →

Suppressive Fire – Nature of War (Lost Apparitions Records)

Well, this was quite a surprise! When the (rather attractive) digipack CD arrived through the door, and I saw that this was an American thrash album, I must confess that I had a certain sound already stereotypically going through my… Continue Reading →

Dead Conspiracy – S/T (Necromantic Press Records)

Back in 2014 I was introduced to this US band’s debut “Abomination Underground” which was more or less a compilation of an EP and demo tunes and offered a slice of retro deathrash authenticity that I really enjoyed and tugged… Continue Reading →

Eerie – S/T (Tee Pee Records)

Don’t be tricked by the cover. Or maybe I’d better say don’t be put off by the cover. Despite appearances, Eerie is no Toxic Avenger worshipping, zombie-obsessed, disposable thrash metal band. Maybe it works with the music on some level… Continue Reading →
