Destruction – Born To Perish (Nuclear Blast)

Some bands are a bastard to write about; it is easy to wax lyrical about song structures and compositional ability, virtuoso performances or atmospheric impact. It can be difficult to write about bands that have a tried and tested formula… Continue Reading →

Overkill, Destruction, Flotsam and Jetsam – London Islington Academy 21/3/19

Owing to the venue’s policy to take a donation for an animal shelter for guest access, and only accepting cash in this digital age, I had to queue twice after being instructed to find the nearest ATM and come back… Continue Reading →

JT Ripper – Gathering of the Insane (I Hate)

Well, this worked out a little different than I thought it might. Looking at the initial promo blurb, which talked about a German power trio taking an old school approach to heavy metal, I thought I’d be listening to something… Continue Reading →

Nefasturris – Towers of Sin (S/R)

This is a recording project, considered a “life’s work” of Full Thrash Assault manager Dave Ingram Jr and features guest appearances from many a named artist in the business. Rawness is the key to the majority of the release, harbouring… Continue Reading →

Panzer Squad – Ruins (Testimony Records)

Teutonic threesome Panzer Squad began in 2012 and “Ruins” is their second full length release, following 2016’s “Coming to your Town”.  Heavy Metal’s preoccupation with the machines of War is understandable. Death contraptions of steel and iron that destroy and terrorize… Continue Reading →

Ravens Creed – Get Killed or Die Trying (Xtreem Music)

Well, I had to do a bit of a double take on the title of this one, as it reminded me almost immediately of The Rotted’s “Get Dead or Die Trying” from way back in 2008, but as you can… Continue Reading →

Dreadful Fate – Vengeance (I Hate Records)

Like old German thrash? Miss the days of “Pleasure To Kill” and “Infernal Overkill”? Do you have the first two Exumer albums on constant rotation?  Well, if that’s the case, this record will make you throb so hard you’ll artex… Continue Reading →

Necrodeath – The Age Of Dead Christ (Scarlet / Terror From Hell)

Although Necrodeath have been going since 1985 it was after they took a ten year break that I originally discovered them through their comeback album Mater Of All Evil. It was hardly surprising our paths would cross due to the… Continue Reading →

Exekution -The Worst Is Yet to Come (Thanatology Productions)

Catalonia is currently a hotbed of social and political turmoil and the way things are looking, it doesn’t seem like it will calm down any time soon. With cultural identity, a sense of independence and pride all feeling wounded, the… Continue Reading →

Insane – Evil (Duplicate Records)

Well these young Swedish whipper-snappers formed in 2009 and, after a few demos, splits etc this is their debut album, and there’s quite a lot to like if you’re a fan of old school thrash metal especially when you consider… Continue Reading →

GWAR – Blood Of Gods (Metal Blade)

It can’t have been an easy decision to carry on after the tragic death of Dave Brockie aka Oderus Urungus at all. After all he was the alien in chief behind GWAR since they formed even if Sleazy Martini tried… Continue Reading →

Panzer – The Fatal Command (Nuclear Blast)

If you didn’t grab Panzer’s debut album “Send Them All To Hell” then have a quiet word with yourself over a stiff drink. It was one of the best heavy metal releases of 2014. A classic Teutonic power trio, Schmier… Continue Reading →
