Diabolic Night – Beyond the Realm (High Roller Records)

Right off the bat, let me tell you that reading the accompanying blurb and discovering that “Diabolic Night” is essentially a one-man band had me face-palming. While there are some notable exceptions, in my experience, most of the worst, most… Continue Reading →

Cemetery Urn – Barbaric Retribution (Hells Headbangers)

I always shudder a bit when I see a band referred to as “bestial” ….. it makes me think of muddy production masking shitty playing, impenetrable vocals, cover art of a nun / angel / vicar being sodomised by a… Continue Reading →

Procession – Doom Decimation (High Roller)

Procession have come a long way. From Chile to Sweden and back again to Chile to record this album, in fact…It has also been four long years since their magnificent sophomore album ‘To Reap The Heavens Apart’, in part presumably… Continue Reading →

Weaponizer – Lawless Age (20 Buck Spin)

Well, set fire to my hair and call me Rupert, I would have put money on this motley crew being Australian. I mean, everything here positively screams of being from the land down under (where women glow, and men plunder)…. Continue Reading →

Craven Idol – The Shackles of Mammon (Dark Descent)

It’s getting increasingly hard to imagine that 2013’s Towards Eschaton was Craven Idol’s first full-length, and what a debut that was. It wasn’t that the combination of death, black and thrash metal was so original but the way the band… Continue Reading →

Denouncement Pyre – Black Sun Unbound (Hells Headbangers)

Just when you thought the Australian extreme metal scene couldn’t get any better, along came Denouncement Pyre back in 2013 with the devastating Almighty Arcanum. As if to prove that was no fluke, and clearly determined not to leave the… Continue Reading →

Scythian – Hubris in Excelsis (Hells Headbangers)

If it’s possible to combine the unholy loin fruits of Manowar, Bathory and Destroyer666 into one album – and that’s not even a fraction of the influences I could name here – then let it be remembered that Scythian showed… Continue Reading →

Bestiality – Stuck in Bestial Vision (Old Temple)

Blackened thrash is one strand of metal that will forever have one heavily-studded hobnail boot planted firmly in the 1980s. That’s a good thing, by the way. A great thing, in fact. The days of ‘How much heavier?’, ‘Faster?’, ‘Harder?’… Continue Reading →
